It’s probably a bank holiday where you are right now, so the briefest of posts to mention the formal launch of The International Indie Author’s Facebook Group.
This weekend yet another broadband satellite went into orbit. Launched from Kazakhstan and serving (from the end of the year) the Pacific region, it’s a reminder of how truly globile (global mobile) our world is becoming.
So no better time to be climbing on board the international indie author crusade.
For those interested you can find the Facebook Group here (LINK).
It’s a public group and open to any and all to join and contribute to. If you have any useful experiences of going global, or spot any pertinent news stories about the global publishing market, do share.
But please, no book promo. Only include a link to your book if making a point about, or contributing a post about , the global publishing markets.
Which basically means that big wide world beyond the US-UK axis that most indies focus on.
English-language titles selling well outside the US and UK markets? Charting on Amazon India or Amazon Mexico? Seeing sales through Kobo in Japan or the Philippines? Getting good results from the Tolino stores across Europe? That’s news. We want to hear about it in the FB group, and yes, with relevant links.
Getting your works translated through Fiberead, Babelcube or by some other means? That’s pertinent. Come and and share your experiences in the FB group.
Seeing chart success with your by translations? That’s worth linking to. Come and show us it can be done!
Got a question about the global markets. Put it up in the FB Group and if I don’t have the answer someone else may.
There’s only a handful of members right now, because the group has only just today been officially announced, so come and help bump those numbers up and meet fellow indie authors travelling the global journey to international sales.
