Kay | 158 comments Indie Advent Calendar is back! It runs from December 1st-25th and I feature a different book or two every day. This is to give exposure to indie authors and encourage people to buy books as gifts/with their Christmas money.
I ran this event last year and featured 50 authors, it was a great success and this year will be even better! To take part, email me with a short post about you and the book you're advertising (1st in a series works best) in a way to catch a reader's attention. You can include a short excerpt if you'd like. I'll pull your cover from Goodreads but send a bio pic if you want one included.
Please message me if you need my email address (Please use my Hotmail, not Navigating Indieworld address) All entries must be in by October 8th, everyone will be included, and you are encouraged to help promote the event when it launches, 50 authors have a much wider reach than 1! Take a look at the one from last year if you need inspiration http://kaymacleodbooks.com/indie-adve...
I'm also giving away three prize packs during the event so if you'd like to donate any books or swag, that would be awesome :)
(Ps, I'm sorry but I don't feature erotica.) Please ask if you need more information and thanks for taking part!

Simi Sunny | 173 comments Are you ok with ebook editions? My book is only ebook version. :( I wish I can also do print editions. It's gonna take time to do that.


message 10: by M.L. (new)

M.L. Tompsett | 5 comments Looks good, Kay. But my books contain subject matter a bit spicy. Unless you deem, otherwise. They are not under erotica, even though there is plenty of steamy sexual scenes.

I also have a page on my website for published author friends. To give them the chance to have their book and web link seen, in different parts of the world. It is only a basic webpage at the moment. Until I complete my current WIP, then I will re-create my page and improve the look.

Hi M.L. your romance is okay, it's mainly explicit covers that I'm trying to avoid, as younger people visit my site too. I've sent you a message.

Hi Simi, ebook only is fine! I've sent you a message.

Hi Kay, my books are in eBook format. My printed one is a POD. Otherwise, I mainly deal with eBooks. My first eBook of the series is FREE at most eBook stores. But it all depends on where you are in the world.
I'll still send you an email with the book info etc. Let me know, if it is not ok.
I can still place your info / links up on my website and social medial if you like.
If you would like one of your books added to my website author friends page, let me know.

That's all great, M.L. I'm looking forward to your entry :)
And I'd love to be featured on your website, thank you! What do you need from me?


message 14: by M.L. (new)

M.L. Tompsett | 5 comments With my website, I place a pic of your book cover and a link of your website or the link to where your book is available. I have sent you an email, but I am not sure what you really require for your entry. I have added the links, if you require one. A pic of the book cover and a pic of me. Oh, and a copy of the blurb also.

I've got it, it's perfect, thanks! The space is yours to put whatever you want to show off yourself and your book really so I've not made strict guidelines.

For your website my book is Heirs of Power and my website is www.kaymacleodbooks.com
Do you need me to send a picture of my cover or is the one on here suitable?

Thanks so much for adding me.

Oh Kay- do you want me to mail the book to you- I figured you would give me the winner and I would mail it directly.

Dennis Meredith (dennismeredith) | 189 comments I just sent books for the Indie Advent Calendar to Kay. It was so easy, I live in California so I just ordered the books from Amazon UK, shipping is free in the UK, and they will arrive next week. So much easier than shipping books from my supply across the pond. :)

That’s smart

so that means that we in the US. can include UK entrees in giveaways, that's great!
