Seven years ago, the Evil Mastermind launched Indies Unlimited. Since then, we’ve had over 2.5 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.
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.

Today is Mr. Pish’s birthday. The “Traveling Terrier” was a champion of childhood literacy and outdoor awareness. He was also the mascot of Indies Unlimited.
Though he passed away at the ripe old age of 16, his legacy lives on through his many books and even a fun companion app.
His long-time human companion, best friend, and dedicated biographer/transcriptionist is our administrator, K.S. Brooks. Mr. Pish left her a wealth of material with which to carry on with his work in helping children love reading, nature, history, and geography.
We celebrate his life and achievements today. If you’d like to drop by any of Mr. Pish’s social media channels and wish him a happy birthday, or give him a follow or a like, your gesture would be greatly appreciated.
Indies Unlimited does not review books, but we do have a couple of renowned reviewers on staff. We thought a great way to celebrate indie writing would be to ask those reviewers for their top indie picks of the month. Here are this month’s top picks from our experts:
