Hi all, as a full time web developer, and part time indie author, I wanted to create a search site devoted exclusively to the works of independent authors. I'm hoping that at some point this site will be a premier location for readers to search for and find indie books that meet their current interests. But to do this I need some help.
Please consider being some of the first indie authors at www.universeindie.com. All you need to do to sign up is create a new user, add a description of yourself to help readers get to know you and your books better, and begin adding books. I'm currently screening all users to ensure no spammers get into the site, and also validating all books to ensure they are indeed Indie.
Once at the site, to sign up, just go to the "sign in" link at the top right, and then, at the sign in page, scroll to near the bottom where you'll find a sign up button. If you have any questions, feel free to let me know and I'll try to help out!
A cool feature I've added is the ability for you to add your free KDP select dates to any of your book. After adding your book, you just need to go to the book edit screen, and add a date, and duration. Note, all books need to have a valid ASIN from Amazon to be approved (I want readers to be able to buy/download them quickly). I will be adding Smashwords and ISBN options soon though.
Fee free to offer any advice or suggestions if you decide to check out the site. I'm hoping that it will be helpful to both Indie Authors and readers alike! Oh, and if you do like the site, please spread the word to other Indie authors. Thanks!
