|Variety is Good|
November 1st marks the start of "Adopt an Indie" month, an entire month of celebrating independently published books and their authors. I'm proud to say that Blue Hill will be one of the featured selections for the event and that I'll be contributing an opening blog post to get things started on Tuesday.
With all due respect to Stephen King and everyone else sitting at the big table, indie authors are an enthusiastic and hungry lot and they've got some big ideas. Like the independent filmmakers and musicians that came before them, indie authors are determined to tell their stories. New technology has transformed the publishing industry and the dust hasn't even begun to settle.
"Independent" is sometimes described as "out of the mainstream." Indie artists have provided variety to audiences that wouldn't have been possible otherwise. If you enjoy a change of pace and are looking for something a little different than usual, remember the artists who are bucking the system and bringing some variety to the party. They're the indies and they believe that variety is the spice of life.
