Promoting indies – what would you like to see?

I’m currently burying my head in a PHP manual to get the website up and running* so now would be the best time for this…

As an author or reader what would you like to see from the website?

  • Stories that have been published but are no longer available will be added to an archive where any comments (and links) are still available.
  • I’ll be adding a user area where self-publishers, small-publishers, writers etc… can recommend good editors, book designers, or reviewers. (To protect the contact details here (from bots mostly) it will have to be locked to registered users.)
  • I want to create a list of independent sellers so that people don’t have to go through Amazon, but would that be useful?
  • I might add a forum where readers can recommend an indie author.

So the question is: are there any features that you would like to see?

and… back to the manual

*which is why posts have been light on the ground recently (see above) 😦


About indie e-books is aimed at providing a common platform for indie writers and publishers to show-case their work. The content is kept limited to one (free) short story per author to give the reader an idea of the writing style and talent involved and to help forward them on to more substantial work.

    I subscribed to you because I want to know about all the latest trends/changes in the publishing and self-publishing industry. I’d like more of that, if possible. 😉

    Great! Thanks for the feedback. 🙂 I’m looking forward to putting it all together. 😀

    Hi, I’d be interested in a section on ‘here’s an editor/ artist/ whatever I recommend’. That’s for authors and publishers though. Perhaps some kind of ebook giveaways/ competitions would be good.
