13 Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts You Might Find Helpful

Yesterday, I attended the monthly meeting of Kentucky Independent Writers. The group has over 30 members from all around Kentucky. Two members had book launches this week: 

USA Today Bestselling Author Kathleen Brooks released the third full-length novel in the Bluegrass Brothers series ACQUIRING TROUBLE and Robyn Peterman released HOW HARD CAN IT BE.

KIW is a positive environment where we discuss all publishing matters, including the business side of being an indie author. 

Currently, about half of the members are indie and the other half are both traditionally and independently published. While most members are romance writers, all genres are welcome. 

Also, nine members of the group (Hayden Braeburn, Hallee Bridgeman, Jesse V. Coffey, Amy Blakeman Durham, Katherine Lowry Logan, J. M. Madden, Kallypso Masters,  Teresa Reasor, and Diane I. Strong) put together the KIW SAMPLER (Volume 1). The ebook is available FREE at Amazon.  

If you’re a writer and don’t have a support group, find one. If you live in Kentucky, check out our organization.
