2013 Coming Soon Topics

Welcome to the YA (and more) Author Club! 


Every Friday, the members of the YA Author Club will discuss and post (on their individual blogs & here) topics pertinent to indie authors. This unique twist on an indie author sponsored club allows our supporters to get to know us, our books, our opinions of other books, and our experiences with indie publishing.

If you own an e-reader, you are probably at least slightly familiar with the world of indie publishing, but if not, allow us to introduce ourselves to you.

Indie authors are those who have chosen to publish their written works independently of a traditional publisher or agent. They own their works, set their prices, and are responsible for every aspect - writing, editing, cover design, formatting, marketing, and tracking sells - of their books. Being an author isn’t such an unreachable goal nowadays, because with the right combo of the above, you can make your dreams of being published a reality.
Don't forget to follow this site (and/or our individual author's sites) to get updates while showing your support for these authors. If you're an young adult indie author, feel free to join us. The more opinions/ experiences we have to share, the better our club will be.
