Indie-Credible Event Recap!

October 10, 2013 Events, Uncategorized 1


Well, that was a trip! September was Indie-Credible! When I first got the idea to host Indie Authors for a month, I thought it would be small, and would be lucky to have one post per weekday. Now I look back and snort-laugh at myself. I quickly realized I couldn’t do this on my own, so started planning with Shirley from Creative Deeds Reads. We ended up with over 120 authors, and that is with a couple of missed posts, and a couple last minute additions. (See the complete schedule at the end of the post, with links and everything)

First and most importantly, I have to thank Shirley. I seriously could not have done this without her. I don’t think you all understand the amount of work that woman put into this event. From making the graphics, to posting the daily links on the facebook page, to emailing frantic authors who had trouble contacting their bloggers. I mean, what the heck did I do? She is a workhorse and I can’t even tell you the mad love I have for her. It borders on inappropriate.

I also have to give a mad shout out to a couple authors specifically – Tom “Slick” Amo and Karen Amanda Hooper. Tom was wonderful enough to interview me for his internet radio show, The Blitz. He also promoted many of the posts as they went up, talked us up, got more authors and more bloggers to sign up, and all while playing awesome music :-).

And Karen Amanda Hooper … organized this. I have no words for the awesome. Just watch it. Then get back to me.
Yeah … I am still amazed and awed by that. No words.

And to all the authors. You all were amazing. ARE. ARE amazing. You put up with Shirley and I through all our little snaffus and miscommunications. You all were patient, and giving. Many of you donated to make it possible to do one of the biggest giveaways I’ve ever seen – over $300. We picked the winner and it is

Raquel G.

Raquel had the option to choose what ereader she wanted, and she chose the Kindle Fire HDX pre-order and will get it near the end of the month. So congratulations Raquel!

And finally, to all the bloggers that hosted authors – YOU ALL AMAZE ME. There were some amazing and creative posts. I was impressed daily with the posts, the promo, the intense love that was obvious through your posts.

Seriously – writing this up I am about in tears. YOU ALL ARE AWESOME. Check out the posts, and see for yourself. And … I’ll probably see you in a year. 😉
