What we're about

If you are interested in being an Independent Author and self-publishing then come along. We welcome anyone whether you have already published some work, have a book or two ready or are working through a book at the moment.

We are Sinclair and Kim Macleod and together we bring a wealth of practical self-publishing experience with 8 of our own books, 130,000 book sales. We developed Indie Authors World after so many writers asked for help and have now published 85 books of all genres for other writers. We have learned a lot about publishing and love to share our experience and encourage others to take the leap and self-publish.

The Indie Authors group will provide practical advice, support and motivation for authors. The group offers monthly meetups with a key practical theme, expert sessions, motivation tips and problem solving. We have sessions on editing, fomatting, publishing formats, social media, marketing and selling. Where possible we hope to invite some experts along to share their wisdom too.

The focus of meetups are positive and encouraging to ensure that authors can benefit from the group, share best practice and network with others. The Indie Authors group offer opportunites for joint marketing, promotions and events to assist members with marketing and selling their books.
