IndiePubbers, here's to new beginnings!
To all the newbies who recently joined our Meetup, welcome! Our focus is on equipping writers (or aspiring authors), with the tools, tips and tricks to help build your author platform. If your passion is publishing your work (print, online mobile or Web), this is the group for you. We'll also help you define your vision, map out a strategy, build your author platform and get through the publishing process.
FYI -- for all of 2013, our meetings will be on the THIRD Sunday of the month so as to ensure our regular meeting room at Coffee House Cafe.
This year for all of 2013, we are going to be working from the HOT new book, APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur, the definitive book on "self-publishing." IndiePubbers are extremely blessed to be working with former Apple evangelist and Alltop site founder, author Guy Kawasaki. Guy provided us with a FREE copy of APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur, the definitive book on "self-publishing." This was a real coup, guys. For those who missed it the first time, here's the link (note it expires 01/21/13):
Also, look at the FILES section on our Meetup site -- I've just uploaded TWO book layout templates! Be sure to show Guy your appreciation for the cool goodies by going out on Amazon and posting a positive review of APE. When you write a review, please send me a link so I can let Guy know how much we appreciate this great book.
Our first DFW Independent Publishers Meetup of 2013's Kickoff Speaker is J.R. Atkins, author of Success Simplified. J.R. is going to tell us how he SOLD out of 250 books in a ridiculously short amount of time. The 21st attendee of Sunday's meeting will receive a special gift.
Look for another email from me later in the week. Can't wait to see you Sunday!
