Starting a Book Club for reading self-published authors is something I've wanted to do for quite some time. Is supporting SP authors as important to you as it is to me?

Mel Baker (themelbaker) | 75 comments Yay! I saw you posting about this. I'm totally in and yes, it is so important!


A_ bookbound _soul (a_bookbound_soul) | 7 comments I I totally supported SP authors. I've come across a few such authirs who are really good and need support.


message 4: by Klaus (new)

Klaus (klaus92) This is a great idea. There are some real gems from self-publishers out there that are definitely worth reading!


message 5: by Leon (new)

Leon Stevens (leon_stevens) | 58 comments There are a few groups on GR that support self-published (or Indie authors), but you can never have too many!

I'm biased since I choose to go the indie route. It is much easier to do this these days and there is a lot of competition. Supporting self-published authors is important, just as it is important to support the local businesses in your own community. Writers appreciate any support we can get. It keeps us writing!

I love the comparison to local businesses! I completely agree

Mel Baker (themelbaker) | 75 comments Wow, it's so amazing that this group already has over 30 members. Honestly when I got the invite, as awesome as i thought the idea was, I thought it would take forever for you to get people interested in this. Boy was i wrong. You go girl. What you are doing, the whole idea around this group is absolutely amazing!

I can't wait to find some amazing SP authors!

Balu (balu_reader) I know of one SP author - John Bierce. He is a YA fantasy writer and he wrote Mage Errant series, one of my favourite fantasy series. You should check him out, he's amazing.

Ross Eberle | 26 comments Hi, everyone!

I was kindly invited to this group by someone called Leon Stevens. On this note, I'd like to know if there's a new-member introduction thread I can post about myself and my works in.

Thanks for having me here. Cheers!

Hey Ross - so glad you joined us. There is a discussion folder title SP Authors. You are welcome to post your works or promos in that folder for other readers to check out! Once you get them posted there, I will also add them to our bookshelf for easy access.

Hey Abby - thanks for putting this group together. I never thought in a million years I'd self-publish one of the novels I've written, simply because I didn't think I had the knowledge to promote it and get it out there. But here we are, in the middle of a plague - and I decide to finally self-publish - DOH!

Megan (meganfathereeofficial) | 2 comments As a self-published author, myself, I'm so glad to find that there is a community here on GR that will support self-pubbers! It's a hard path, so I'm glad to see there are people who love self-published books (maybe even more than traditionally published).
