Eight Years and Still Going…

Eight years ago, the Evil Mastermind launched Indies Unlimited. Since then, we’ve had well over 2.7 MILLION page views, been named as one of Six Great Blogs for Indie Authors in Publishers Weekly, and ranked as one of the top writing-related sites by Alexa.

If you want to see what other people are saying about us, you can check out our “What Others Are Saying” page here. Yeah, not super original, but hey… it gets the point across. We haven’t updated it in a while. Someone needs to get on the admin to do that.

Since our early days, we have evolved greatly, but never lost sight of providing free, high-quality content for all types of writers and readers.  We’re proud that readers and authors alike trust our content, and we’re grateful to all of you for spreading the word about us.

Indies Unlimited is run by volunteers. Kudos to all the minions past and present for donating their time and energy to provide excellent articles, advice, and tutorials for our audience.

Here at IU, we do our best to publish one article every day, but due to time and financial restraints, sometimes that’s not possible and we miss a day or two. We try to avoid that and will continue to provide helpful content as those things allow. Thanks for your patience with that.

So here’s a pile of thank yous for making Indies Unlimited a success and a community. It could not be one without the other. We look forward to another year filled with great things for all.thank you writers banner-1186625_640

Google+ is Going Bye-Bye

Google Plus LogoI don’t know about you, but frankly, I’m relieved. I’m already spread so thin between working, writing (more like not writing), life, and social media, that the fact that we are losing one of the places we should have a presence is a gift. And honestly, I haven’t found Google+ to be one of the most user-friendly platforms out there. I never could figure out circles, and I have literally never been able to find the Indies Unlimited group on Google+. Thank you to everyone who has been managing/moderating/running that group. You may now take a well-deserved vacation. Continue reading “Google+ is Going Bye-Bye”

Seven Years and Still Going …

We have evolved greatly since those early days, but never lost sight of providing free, high-quality content for independent publishers and readers.  We’re proud that readers and authors alike trust our content, and we’re grateful to all of you for spreading the word about us.

Indies Unlimited is run by volunteers. Kudos to all the minions past and present for donating their time and energy to provide excellent articles, advice, and tutorials for our audience.

Thank you, everyone, for making Indies Unlimited a success and a community. It could not be one without the other. We look forward to another year filled with great things for all.

CreateSpace to be Phased Out

createspace logoAs many of us have feared since the introduction of KDP Print, it was finally announced that CreateSpace would be merged into the newer entity. The email, sent from CreateSpace early this morning, stated:

We’re excited to announce that CreateSpace (CSP) and Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) will become one service, and in the coming days, we will give CreateSpace members the ability to move their account and titles. To ensure a quality experience, we will add links to the Continue reading “CreateSpace to be Phased Out”
