My e-book By the Light of the Moons is still free today but the sale ends tomorrow.
Or get the paperback if you’re old-school.
The book is a collection of devotions you and your family can read together for each day of Advent. You can learn more about the book at her blog. More formats, including paperback, will be available in the coming weeks just in time for the Advent Season.
If this year you are looking for an Advent season with deeper meaning and reflection, consider purchasing today. And let others know, too.
A great article over at IndieReader continues to drive home the message: readers are smart enough to choose the books they want to read.
Think about all the art out there:
Would you only buy a painting from an art gallery? Probably not. If you saw someone selling their watercolor paintings at the boardwalk and you really liked it, you’d buy it!
Would you only buy a CD from Best Buy? Of course not. If you see a band play at a local bar and like what you hear, you pick up their home-made album and enjoy it on the way home!
Would you only buy jewelry from a “real” jewelry store or department store? Not if you saw some beautiful hand-made dichroic glass jewelry at a local festival.
Would you only spend your money on Broadway shows in Manhattan? Chances are, your community theater puts on great shows that are well worth your time and money.
Why would you only buy a book that was printed by one of the major publishing houses? Why do they get to choose what you can and cannot read?
Send a message to traditional publishing with your wallet: buy indie books. Let the world know authors are finally in control of their work, and that readers are finally free to choose.
Indie music, Indie video games, Indie publishing. It’s all the rage, haven’t you heard?
I’ve been a nerd/geek for as long as I can remember. Being trendy has never been an aspiration of mine. I’m very independent.
Hence, Independent publishing.
Thanks to Amazon, the ebook revolution is well underway, and now authors have a new and inexpensive way to reach readers, and maybe some can even make a living out of it.
My reasons for choosing to go Indie with By the Light of the Moons are the following:
Despite all the above, there is still that little part of me (the one that wants recognition and prestige) that wonders, “Could I have made it the traditional way?” I don’t know.
But really,who cares? Why should a person I’ve never met get to decide if my book is “worthy” of print? Let the reading market decide if I’m worthy.
Independence. It is here. It is now. Savor it.
