Indie Life


**If you'd like a monthly reminder please sign up for the Indie Life Newsletter!**


Starting January 2013, the Indelibles will be hosting a monthly feature called INDIE LIFE. Modeled after Alex Cavanaugh's awesome Insecure Writer's Group, this will be a chance for indie authors to post about indie life, find each other, offer support, encouragement, news, helpful hints, and anything else that makes life as an indie author a little easier.

What is Indie Life?
How: Sign up on the Linky at the bottom of this page
When: Post on the second Wednesday of the month (starting 1/9/2013)
What: Write anything indie related: something that will inspire or help a fellow indie; something that celebrates a release or a milestone; something that talks about the ups and downs, joys and heartaches of Being Indie.
Grab: The banner above to include in your posts!

Because being Indie doesn't have to mean going it alone.

  1. Is this a sign-up-every-month thing? I'm not an indie author yet, but I'm definitely trending in that direction.

    1. Sign up once on the linky and it will be on the list for every month - you can delete/add yourself as you go, if you want to join/drop out for a while. It would be great if the list could be current, so that people are on the list when they're actually posting. Thanks for joining us!

  2. Thanks for asking the same question I had Lauren!

  3. I'm not a writer, I'm a painter who follows a lot of writers because they are good. I followed the link from Andrew at Strange Pegs. I wish you the best success!

  4. Strange, my link for Civil War Horror dropped off the linky list. I've added it again and my post is up! I think a couple more fell off too.

    1. I'm so glad you signed up again! We had a last-minute linky death and everyone got wiped out!! I tried to track down everyone I could, so I'm so glad you found us again. :)

    Hugs and chocolate,

  8. It's so fun reading everyone's posts this morning!

    I didn't see how to copy the code for the linky, so I just linked back to this post. If there's a code I should put in, I'd be happy to add it in later.

    1. Oh, I don't know if I just missed it or if it was just added, but I've got the links code in now :)

  9. I added my name again, but it's not showing. How long should it take to be visible?

  10. This is exciting! I will release my first book on April 2, 2013. This has been a wonderful experience and I look forward to my book's release. The title is "Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey." Thank you for the invite!

  11. I have my guest posts on Wednesdays. I really want to do this … but don’t want to take away focus from my guests that day. What should I do? :-/

    1. You can always combine your guest post with the Indie Life theme, maybe with a small intro from you - that's what I did today!

  12. Will start to participate in... April or May. :) Great idea.

  13. I'm in! This is a topic I blog about regularly anyway. :)

  15. We just posted our link and vlog post. :) http://nightmarchersseries.blogspot.com/2013/04/indie-life.html

  16. I've only just been put onto this site (love it, BTW!) and I've put up a post. A little late, but better than not at all!
    Going through some of the other links and I must say, it's great to find other indies and read about your indie lives.

  17. I need to remove my website from the linky. Site: Writing, the Universe, and Everything Books. I will try to keep up with reading others awesome posts even though I'm not contributing right now. Hopefully when life settles a bit I can return. Thanks! ;)

    1. You should be able to click the "x" and delete it yourself. Thanks & we'll hope to see you back soon!

  18. Hi! I also need to delete my link for a bit. Where is the "x"? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oops! In searching for the "x" I accidentally made another link. Sorry! Now, I need to delete them both.

  19. Sorry I missed last month because of the Challenge, but I made it this time!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Damn it. The linky won't show up on my blog. :(

    1. Sometimes it's hard to get the correct code to embed, esp if you have a Wordpress blog - a regular link is just fine!

      Delete
  21. What a great idea. I missed this month (by a day!), but I've signed up and am planning my post for next month!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I really want to participate in this but it's going to be a month or so before my book is ready to launch, I'm assuming I should wait until then? How will I find this post again? LOVE THIS!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I signed up, but I accidentally put the wrong link into the form. Is there any way to fix that? My blog title is Word by Word, number 99 on the list.

  24. I see that for THE THIRD TIME I have been removed from the list. Once I could kind of understand, meaning I bought the excuse. The second time I decided to let go, but, now, three times? What gives? I've posted every month since this started and brought people over to it, and I'm finding I've been removed from the list again? I'm not buying the "mistake" thing again. If there's some reason you don't want me on the list, just tell me.
    Heck, I don't even know if I was on the list last month and only checked today as I was linking over from my post because of the email y'all sent out.

    Yes, I'm not happy about this treatment am planning to remove the link.

    1. Andrew - we have you up on the list again. Sorry for the frustration and we look forward to your posts!

    2. Uh, yeah. Mine was removed, too. When I came over to read everyone else's posts I was gone?

      Delete
  25. I've changed the URL for my blog...who do I let know?

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is my first time participating in this program and for some reason the Linky code is not working on my site. For now I've created a do-around encouraging readers to click on the image which is linked to this page. Later I'll try to figure out what the problem is with the Linky code or simply withdraw my name from the list if it's too much of a headache. Thanks,

    1. If you're using Wordpress, the linky code doesn't sometimes work. Having a regular link is just fine!

  27. Hi, How do you remove your name from the list?
    I'm not an indie author, Actually, I'm not an author at all. I'm a reviewer and I support Indie authors by reviewing their books and using my blog to do what I can to help. I must have made an error when I signed up.
    Thanks.

  34. Hi! I'm switching to Blogger. Is there a way to switch my link or delete my old link and add a new one? I'm #85. Thanks! :)
