Note: I'm reblogging this from my own blog to spread the word.
Have you ever wished there was a convention specifically for indie
writers? Apparently, there is one. It's called IndieReCon LIVE!, and
it's taking place October 10--October 11 in Sandy, Utah. Even if you
can't make it there in person, you can still participate in their
contests. Click here for
the rules and how to enter for the chance to earn a Howey. (After Hugh
Howey, of course. They chose a great person to name their awards after,
didn't they?) Most of the contests are free to enter, but some do
require a small fee ($15 max) to enter.
not sure yet if this is something I want to enter. The rules do allow
books published in 2013 to be nominated, so I could enter Twinned Universes.
Perhaps if the categories were broken down by genre instead of reader
age group, I'd feel that this was a better fit for me. (To me, this con
seemed skewed toward YA.) Still, some publicity might come out of it,
and you can nominate other authors' works for some of the categories.
The deadline for the Total Package contest is June 30th; for all the
rest, it's July 31st. I still have time to mull this over.
this sound like something that would interest you? Why or why not?
Please feel free to comment; it should be much easier to do so now.
