Now the real fun begins!
Tune in to #SIsubs & #ShoreIndie on Twitter for writing tips on the book blurb and first five pages as the editors tweet anonymous feedback about their submissions from June 5-10.
Attend the Author-Editor pair announcements, tweeted by @ShoreIndie, at noon ET on Sunday, June 11th to see which 10 authors the editors have chosen to work with for the 7-week Editing Round. The 10 winners of the blurb critique raffle will also be announced on this day.
Keep an eye on the website for the Editing Round Event Schedule, which will include the days & times of:
- #AskAuthor chats with the ShoreIndie Featured Authors and Judges. Want to know more about how to format for ebook and print? Whether to join the KDP Select program or distribute your book more widely? How to grow your audience and sell more books? These chats are fabulous opportunities to learn more about other indie authors' experiences - what's worked for them and what hasn't.
- Mini-workshops on craft, hosted by ShoreIndie editors.
- Giveaways of marketing consultation, Write! word processing software, ebooks about the business side of indie authorship, and books by our Featured Authors.
HUGE THANKS to everyone who entered the contest and to all who have watched and cheered our authors and editors on from the sidelines. We look forward to a summer full of rich conversations about indie authorship and tons of writerly and bookish fun!
