Indie Jane is a new website that features independent writers of Jane Austen sequels, retellings, and variations. Their mission is to “[celebrate] and [support] independent/non-traditionally published Austenesque literature.” Check out their website where you will find a chat room, message board, and links to online Austen resources. And of course, read their blogs to find out about the newest Austenesque books to hit the virtual shelves.
I’m thrilled to have been invited to participate in this group of self-published or soon-to-be self-published authors. These writers take their role as publisher seriously and want to support other like-minded writers who have chosen to forgo the restrictions of traditional publishing in search of freedom to write the books they–and hopefully you–want to read.
I will be blogging at Indie Jane once a month about indie publishing and what I’ve learned since I launched Charlotte Collins last year. I’m passionate both about indie publishing and about helping others achieve their dreams, and I’m honored to have the chance to share what I’ve learned about this niche market. And I’m looking forward to meeting new people and connecting even more with readers. (I have readers! I still can’t believe it!)
Now, get thyself to Indie Jane!
