ONLY 99c TO HELP SUPPORT THE INDIE AUTHOR & AN AMAZING CHARITY!

by Jessica Bell

 

The day I realized I’d been obsessing over my sales figures way too much was the day I closed my eyes and tried to think about the real reason I am an indie author.

 
Is my primary goal to make money? No. So why do I keep obsessing over my sales stats? I realized it’s because more sales means more people reading my work. What I really really want is to be read. I want to share the one thing in this world I would cut my fingers off for. I know. If I didn’t have any fingers, I wouldn’t be able to physically write, but you know what I mean.

 

My passion for writing comes with a perpetual replacement button, attached to my side seam, just in case it becomes unraveled, and falls off, after a day gallivanting through the publishing jungle. It can be tough in there, but in the end, being an indie author is OH SO WORTH IT.

 

This made me wonder …  what’s everybody else’s story?

Then Indiestructible was born.

Not only is this anthology packed full of interesting, unique, and genuinely helpful information, and totally worth the 99c (only 99c!!!), 100% of proceeds will be donated to BUILDON.org, a movement which breaks the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education.

 

Pretty amazing, huh?

    Sometimes we need inspiration to move forward over the hurdles (I ran hurdles in track) . When you first face a new hurdle, it looks like a mountain. Insurmountable. Knowing others have taken the hurdle helps one to realize it's not insumountable, tough maybe, but do-able.  Knowing that lets you limber up, plan the approach, and move. 🙂

    97, 98, 99! Okay, I've got my pennies together now. Hm. How do I insert them into my computer to buy the book. Maybe this cup holder thing… (Kidding, kidding.)

  17. Susan Gourley on September 18, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    I've never been sorry I published with a small press. I hope the book inspires many more to take a chance.

    I will, I will! I know practically EVERYONE in it. Yes, yes! Off to get it. Thanks for posting about it pal. I'm so out of touch, I wouldn't have known about it otherwise.

  21. Gary on September 19, 2013 at 2:02 am

    I do love the way the book ties in with such a worthy cause.  And I feel it's my duty to share this posting.  Thank you, my friend.

    What a great idea and for a great cause. Congrats to all the authors involved.

  24. The Desert Rocks on September 19, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    This sounds fabulous and I hope to get it one day for my Kindle. There's a slight hiccup in my Amazon-Kindle connection but it has to do with operator error. LOL

  25. Medeia Sharif on September 19, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    I downloaded this. It sounds like a great read. 

  26. mshatch on September 19, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    Excellent idea and what a good cause!

  27. Jocelyn Rish on September 20, 2013 at 3:27 am

    I'm always waffling about whether I should attempt traditional publishing or just take my fate into my own hands, so this sounds like a great resource. Plus, there were so many familiar blogger names in the list of contributors – how fun!

  28. Donna K. Weaver on September 20, 2013 at 4:17 am

    Got my copy.

  29. Denise Covey on September 20, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    Will I? Won't I? Self-publishing? Big decision! Great collection.

  30. Julie on September 21, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    Congrats to this wonderful group of authors! I'm off to buy a copy!
