Yeah, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything about the Awesome Indies or included new ones into their mighty ranks. Mainly because of that stupid rule I created when I first started the project. Basically, I said I wouldn’t add anyone who “didn’t need the help” or something like that. Total hogwash. Let’s face it: everyone needs help. Publishing is tough. From now on, even indie powerhouses get a seat at the table.
Another change is I’m no longer limiting the list to people who write so-called “full length novels.” Novellas are allowed. And I only post the actual books that I’ve read by the author, not something else they’d rather see placed here.
With the administrivia out of the way, here are the new Awesome Indies:
Ok, so the interviewer mentions me in the beginning, but I honestly thought it was a great interview for indie authors and recommend listening. This guy Stephen Campbell seems to be knocking them out of the park with his interviews. Last time with Russell Blake, this time with K Rush. http://theauthorbiz.com/tab028-discoverability-kristine-kathryn-rusch/
Russell Blake always has encouraging things to say about indie publishing. Encouraging like a bitter pill — the worse it tastes, the stronger the cure. This latest post of his is a bit more hopeful than usual — a grain of sugar to help the medicine go down.
