Wishing all of our wonderful friends and followers a Happy Thanksgiving.
Thanks for sticking with us even as we have gone to “standby mode” with only a couple of posts a week.
The staff at Indies Unlimited wishes all of you a safe and happy holiday season.
In sports, they call it a “Bye” week – when a team doesn’t have a game. That’s what we’re doing this week for the Flash Fiction Challenge. This isn’t because we need a break – it’s because COVID has hit IU management.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience, and we’ll be back this weekend with a new prompt. Thanks for hanging in there.
Sorry about the break this week with the Flash Fiction Challenge. Schedules didn’t permit getting a prompt up in time. We’ll be back this Saturday with a new prompt, so get ready! Thanks for your patience. – The Admin.
From the Draft2Digital website:
We’re betting that’s a headline you never expected to see, and we’re already anticipating the chatter this will cause in the indie author community!
We know this is going to feel a bit unexpected and out of the blue, but we’re very excited to make this announcement, and even more excited about what this means for you and the rest of the author community.
Since Draft2Digital was founded, in 2012, we have always believed that Smashwords was a vital and integral part of the self-publishing community. In many ways, Smashwords ultimately built the very industry in which we all work and thrive. Their work laid the foundation, and we’ve all been building on that foundation ever since.
And though Draft2Digital and Smashwords have always been cast as rivals in this little drama, the truth is it was, at worst, a friendly rivalry. In the end, we share the same goal: Empower self-published, indie authors and publishers to build and grow their publishing careers.
At the core of each company there has always been a love and appreciation of the author community. Many of us are authors ourselves, and each company was founded to provide the sort of services and support that we need. We understood your needs because we share them.
