First, a little history: Amazon KDP celebrated Indie Publishing Month a few months back. At the time, they featured a special landing page for indie books, and encouraged authors to use the #PoweredByIndie hashtag with relevant social media posts.
With the new year, Amazon Kindle is again supporting indie authors. This time, it’s through New Year’s writing resolutions.
For one, Amazon created a landing page for indie authors’ writing resolutions and recommendations for indie books (it’s worth exploring, as the page includes many books and audio books geared toward writing and publishing):
Also check out the Amazon KDP Facebook page this month (or any month, as you can often find publishing tips there):
Finally—and this is where YOU come in—Amazon is encouraging indie authors to use the #PoweredByIndie hashtag on relevant social media posts, namely your own writing resolutions and indie book recommendations.
This is a great time to show your support for indie publishing.
- What are your writing resolutions for the new year?
