“The Wolf’s Moon” is featured today on Indies Unlimited. This site is very accessible to the Indie author in every aspect. Beginning or seasoned, or simply somewhere in between, informational blogs about tips and tricks for the Indie author are provided by a staff of experts. I particularly enjoy their featured “Like Fests” where the author can connect to other authors through various social media outlets. This is a great group of people that has gathered together to promote each other as well as share their successful stories so that others may gain from their journey through the self-publishing platform. Interacting with the members provides an interesting mix of personalities from every genre. Challenges are often posted as a means for the author to improve their writing skills and talents. Everyone is welcome and the site is very well maintained by the administrators. We have been listed in the “Freebie Friday” category as well as the above “Book Brief”. In fact, the administrators approached us to inform us that this opportunity was available to pursue.
A terrific site to interact with others and share mutual interests! I highly recommend this site to connect with! It is also interesting that we are featured on the weekend of the Wolf Moon cycle! If you didn’t get a chance to run outside last night to view the moon, it will still be there tonight!! Take care!
