IndieReCon - Free Online Conference

There’s a free, online self-publishing conference taking place next week and it sounds too good not to share here! This is their promotional announcement below. I'm sure there will be great information for any author.

It’s the third year of IndieReCon, and they have an action-packed schedule filled with all sorts of great stuff – a mixture of posts, vlogs, webinars, as well as the opportunity to drill deeper into the various topics with a series of online and Twitter chats. 

The fun kicks off next Wednesday, April 15th at 7:30 (EDT) and runs until Friday, April 17th 

Be sure to drop in, there’s some cool stuff planned, and it’s all FREE (make sure to register to gain access). Last year with over 25,000 visitors, IndieReCon was awesome with chats and giveaways and days of helpful and pertinent information. This year will be even bigger and better! 

To kick us off we’ll have S.R. Johannes and Ali Cross, founders of IndieReCon, welcome you to this year’s conference. Following our welcome join Mark Coker, founder of Smashwords, and Orna Ross, bestselling author and founder of the Alliance of Independent Authors for a wide-ranging discussion about the changing landscape, what it means for writers, readers and author services these days, and their top tips to enable you to publish and sell great books with the minimum of fuss. 

You’ll also discover insider secrets from representatives from around the industry, learn the basics of self-publishing, try your hand at serials, work with other authors to maximize your marketing efforts and much, much more. We have contests and tons of giveaways including KOBO ereaders packed with books. Not to mention, it’s a great place to network, connect and have a lot of fun. 

You can now view our schedule, our speaker bios, and our awesome sponsors.

I've already registered and hope to take advantage of all this free information. Maybe see you online!

I think it will be well worth checking out, Jean! Thanks for commenting.

Sana said...

I don't know why but self-publishing seems a little scary to me, I guess because I don't know much about it. Thanks for letting us know about this Rosemary :)

Maria said...

Sounds very good, I'm sure it'll be of use to many writers. I'll circulate it. Thank you for sharing Rosemary.

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Thanks for your comment, Sana - I'm sure you'll learn a lot about all kinds of publishing from this!

That's good - thanks, Maria.

I'm very good at signing up for these things and doing nothing more about them. I'll try to take a look though as it does sound interesting.

Jane Riddell said...

Thanks for this, Rosemary. Wish I'd read your blog two days ago!

Hope you found something interesting, Patsy!

Don't worry, Jane - you can dip in and out of everything for the next week or so. I'm still catching up with some of them!
