Isn't it about time we indie authors and small imprints had an online home to call our own? And wouldn't it be great if that online home had news about publishing and authorship, articles on topics of interest to us, a moderated discussion board, member profile pages where you could promote your work and keep a blog, reviews of reference books, products, sites and services used by indies, and a general, all-around indie-friendly philosophy? Finally, there is just such a place, and it's called Publetariat.
Publetariat isn't open to the public yet, but all my blog readers get the super-secret link and invitation to join. People who go to Publetariat.com will only find a 'coming soon' page, and the beta launch won't be officially announced until next week at the O'Reilly Tools of Change conference, but since you're here you get to access the beta site a few days early. If you like what you see, you can join now! You may want to start with the 'About' page, to get a handle on Publetariat's mission.
Here's the link:http://www.publetariat.com/index.php
Feel free to share the news with your fellow indie authors and small imprint owners.
