IU Going to Lighter Schedule for August

No television, all work.

Howdy Folks!

This August, we’re going to do something a little different here at Indies Unlimited. Since some projects are backing up, and the minions have been working so hard, we’re going to go to a one-post schedule for the month. Don’t worry, your favorite minions will be working hard on awesome articles for you in September, so don’t go anywhere.

The admin will be working on the print version of the 2014 Flash Fiction Anthology and other projects during the month, so don’t think she’ll be sitting around eating bonbons and watching Oprah. We’re sending her where there is no television to make sure she gets these projects done. She’ll be hard at work in the charming little place we’ve reserved for her (pictured above). There will be no slacking!

In case you need to know what the schedule for August will look like, we’ve put together a chart for you. Here it is. No matter what you’re doing or where you are, we hope you’re having a good summer or winter and we thank you for being a part of the IU family.

July Facebook Fest!

LikeUsOnFacebook_IconRecently, our Shawn Inmon had some great tips for getting your author Facebook page some exposure. Of course, his advice will work for anyone with an FB page, not just authors. Go have a read of his article, then come back here and get your Facebook page some love!

This is how it works: If you are a person with a Facebook page you’re welcome to join in. This is not limited to being an author, publisher, publicist, literary agent, book reviewer, librarian, (but if you’re a book-lover – that’s awesome!), etc., in the comments below, paste in the link for your Facebook Page. Make sure you show some love to the links in the comments above yours, and check back throughout the day to catch up. (“Likes” from other PAGES do not count. Only “likes” from personal accounts register.)

IMPORTANT: Please do not reply to every comment in this thread. Instead, leave a comment on the Facebook Page you like saying, “Indies Unlimited sent me. Please like me back.” Then after you’ve done a bunch, come back here and leave a marker at the bottom saying, “got everyone up to here.” If people reply to each comment with “liked you!,” we will have to turn off comment notifications because we generate more emails than the SPAM guidelines allow. Thank you.

[Don’t forget, if you right-click the links, you can choose to have them open in a separate tab so you don’t have to worry about navigating back and forth to pages.]

This should be fun and should generate a lot of likes, follows, etc. for everyone who plays. Let’s get the party started!

To those with concerns about the ethical implications of “liking” the page of a book you have not read, we regard  likes as more analogous to a “high five” than a rating or review. We do not support the idea of rating or reviewing a book you have never read.

PLEASE be sure to reciprocate by liking those who like you. This is give and take. If everyone plays by the golden rule, we all benefit.
