June 8th – June 15th is Indie Author Week UK!
Founded by independent publisher Team Author UK, Indie Author Week celebrates and supports indie authors by shining a spotlight on their self-published work.
Each year, bookshops, libraries, schools, community groups and businesses from all over the UK are encouraged to get involved by hosting events such as book signings, readings, author visits and other activities. You can check out all the events at indieauthorweekuk.org
As part of this year’s celebration of indieness, we will be releasing a special Indie Author Week episode of The Great Western Woods Worldbuilding Podcast on Monday.
We’ll be talking about our own journeys as indie authors, as well as offering up advice for future indies.
What Can You Do?
Other than giving our lovely podcast a listen (of course!) you can support the other events, either in person, or online. You can also spend the week supporting indie authors by buying their books, leaving reviews, recommending their books to friends and family, sharing their posts and engaging with them online.
Let’s celebrate the wonderful creativity and diversity of Indie Authors!
