I can't believe it's been a year since I was first
sucked intointroduced to Adopt an Indie and what has evolved into The Indie Exchange. I saw a tweet with a suggestion to "Adopt an Indie" (and I still remember who sent the tweet, but I don't think said tweeter is associated with TIE these days), and replied with, "Do I have to adopt one, or can I just foster a couple?" I ended up "adopting" four authors for the event, as well as writing a guest post. I have since learned that indie authors are like cats: You adopt a few and it doesn't take long for all the others to find you. I've made some great friends along the way, though, so I think I'll keep them. As long as I don't have to clean up after them.
Incredibly, The Indie Exchange - or Adopt an Indie as it was originally known - is now a year old. The planning for the first event started in September 2011. In January 2012 the decision was taken to make it an all round service to readers, bloggers and authors. From an event supporting dozens of authors, the Indie Exchange has grown into a 800 member strong - and growing - group. To celebrate, we're inviting you to our best ever giveaway: The September Social Splash.
