Welcome to the September 3, 2012 edition of the Indie Author Community Carnival. It is our inaugural carnival, giving people the opportunity to share great links with everyone. For our first edition, we opened it up to only the Indie Author Group, but from here on in, if you’re an indie, you’re welcome to submit! We’d love to hear about your stuff.
We have five categories.
Blog posts – you submit your own blog posts into the system. You’re allowed two links of your own.Blogs of note – Blog posts from others in the community that we respectNew releases – Releasing a new book in the period of the blog carnival? Please list it here. *please note, books must be less than two weeks old to qualify for this category.
Flash and Fiction – Sharing your flash/fiction or poetry online? Give us the blog URL and we’ll send you traffic!
Misc – Doesn’t really fit anywhere else – submit it here and as long as it’s not something we won’t run, we’ll run it!
How do you take part? Sign up for an account at Blog Carnival, click on our carnival URL, and submit the link to your blog post. It’s that easy. Remember, you’re only allowed to share two links – if you share more than that to your own blog, I’ll only run the first two I receive and reject the rest.
Featured this week in the carnival? We’d appreciate a mention on your blog and social media!
