Friday Update: Pandemic Book Launches
Pandemic Book Launches and Hot Off the Indie Press 24.04.20
In addition to Jim McLeod’s Pandemic Book Launch group on Facebook – go here for more infomation – Joe Mynhardt has set up a collaborative Facebook group for the independent presses: Hot Off the Indie Press. This one carries all sorts of posts from indie publishers to ‘promote sales, sales and opportunities for authors’ amongst other things, if you want to see what they’re up to and what’s available, check it out here.
If you buy, please also consider leaving reviews for the authors and even dropping them a line on twitter or their websites to have a chat with them about the book.
If you see that an announcement has been removed from the listing, don’t panic! Horror Tree uses a program which drip-feeds its posts across social media at defined intervals over the coming year so you will continue to receive publicity that way.
Important: I understand Amazon is preventing a number of publishers selling their work and are delisting them. Although I will continue to put amazon links here, I will make sure the publisher’s names are linked to their sites so you can go directly there and see if there is a different way of purchasing. Amazon doesn’t have to have it all its own way! If I haven’t got your site linked, send it to me and I’ll update; I’ve updated for those I could find.
