There’s a FREE, online self-publishing conference taking place thisweek!

It’s the third year of IndieReCon, and we 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.

To celebrate, we’re giving anyone who joins this week $20 off a VIP membership on Bibliocrunch. Just use promocode: TWENTY

The fun kicks off this 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.

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. Click here for 10 reasons why you should enter.
