Joel Friedlander, proprietor of Marin Bookworks, is pleased to announce the premier issue of the blog carnival Self-Publishing: The Carnival of the Indies which he hosts on his website The Book Designer. It can be found here: http://www.thebookdesigner.com/2010/10/self-publishing-carnival-of-the-indies-issue-1/.
Self-publishing, often referred to as indie publishing, is a rapidly growing and viable alternative to traditional book publishing that is gaining in acceptance and appeal. The Carnival of the Indies is a compilation of the best blog posts written and submitted by self-published authors, book designers, book marketers and others in fields related to writing and self-publishing. The submissions fall into the following categories: Indie Author, Writing Tools & Tips, Book Design & Production, Marketing & Selling Your Books, EBooks and EBook Readers, and Self-Publishing Success. Until now there has not been another blog carnival specifically for people interested in self-publishing.
Twenty submissions have been included in October's issue of The Carnival of the Indies. Featured posts include John Sundman - Travelling Geek Self-Publisher Blues: The Defcon Variations posted at Wetmachine, Michael N. Marcus - Impressions of Self-Publishing Book Expo posted at Book Making and Debbie Mack - Debbi Mack—Stumbling into Indie Publishing posted at Scott Nicholson.
The Carnival of the Indies is published on the last Sunday of each month. Submissions are accepted until the 20th of the month for that month's issue. To submit a blog post for a future issue of Self-Publishing: The Carnival of the Indies, follow this link: http://blogcarnival.com/bc/submit_11407.html and complete the form. Submissions should be original, relevant to the field of self-publishing, and published within the last 90 days. The next issue will be published on November 27, 2010.
