  1. Hey Belinda, if I could throw out a shameless plug, I'd also recommend http://www.indiereader.com/blog I blog there both for readers of indies and for indie authors. (I'm supposed to be unplugged right now. Zoe-unplugging apparently is a totally different thing, LOL.)

    1. Shameless plug away, my lady, I've just started following your blog myself!

      Unplugging. Why is it one of the most difficult things to do in the world?! I'm right there with you.

  3. I’m hitting every market that accepts my work (or that I accept *g*). There are pros and cons to self-, traditional, and e-publishing, and I don’t think it’s an either/or situation. I just released a history magazine with a serialized short story to whet appetites for my writing and am working on an AA historical romance novella and a full-length historical romance. As for your blogging, I’d like to see a writing+going indie journal. I’d do one, but I realized that I hate to blog about myself, lol.

    1. So true. I’m trying to hit the e- and self-publishing markets this time. I’ve also just released the eBook format of my first book, Catching the Rose. I can’t believe it’s been seven years already…

      I love the idea of doing a writing+going indie journal. I’m used to blogging about myself because I’ve had a personal LiveJournal since 2001 (can you believe that?!). I’ll give it a try!

  5. Belinda, there is also the Association of Independent Authors, which I joined last month. They're a professional lot, the organizers and the writer members, and one thing that really struck me was the tone in the forums – it's professional and respectful with none of the usual stuff you see out there (and I confess to being responsible for some of it with my propensisty for sarcasm). They've also been really helpful to me as a budding author with information on how to avoid wasting money on rip-offs. Better still, the organizers are not trying to flog their own books on self-publishing, which I discovered with a similar mob. So far, so good.

    1. Tom, thank you for reminding me! I had them bookmarked, but with all my other bookmarks it got lost in the dross. I'll be sure to check them out.
