Indie Publishing Support Group • Last activity 22/Jun

I am a debut writer and have decided to self-publish. I want my book to be available sooner than the usual amount of time it takes to go the route of an agent and publisher. I just purchased Creative Self- Publishing, ALLi’s Guide to Independent Publishing for Authors and Poets.

Please consider joining me in this journey to self-publish. If you are inexperienced, like me, then a sharing of the above book might be one route to take as a starter. If you are experienced and just need a support group or are hoping to share your successes and challenges, please consider joining us. This could be done through postings on our discussion board and Zoom meetings. I’m open to ideas.
