Happy Independence day!




Thank you to all the men and women of the military and their family members too!

Our freedom may not be possible without all of your sacrifices.

I wish everyone a happy, healthy holiday spent with friends and family if possible. I urge you all to be safe in any case. Don't drink and drive and if you are celebrating with fireworks, please be careful. Accidents do happen. :-(


In an effort to celebrate with all of you, I'd like to offer a giveaway. :-)

You all know how much I love and respect Indie authors. Because this is the fourth of July and I love Indie Authors, I offer you the Indie Dependence giveaway! ;-)

This giveaway is open to followers age 13 or older. International followers are welcome to enter too. :-)

There will be three winners. Each will get their choice of book from their favorite Indie author. They may choose from Kindle, Nook, or Smashwords ($3.99 or less) as long as the book is available in the prefered format.





Which Indie are you most dependent on? 


How are you spending your Fourth of July?


Happy Independence Day! :-)

  2. Happy Fourth of July! I'm not sure which authors are indie. If I won I would select a book in the paranormal/urban fantasy genre. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    1. ^^ like you but i when looking from the books Brenda shared with us those who aren't in paperback to start with then those when it wasn't a publisher but only the author name in the post^^;;

  3. Indie authors are those that are Independant of the big publishers. Some times it is hard to tell which ones are which. lol!

    1. hi jackie.... beautiful disaster is published by simon and suchlter or something so i don't think it's an indie ( it was perhaps before but not now)

    1. I know what you mean. :D Basically if they are not backed by a major publisher, I consider them an Indie. I know there is more to it than that but that is my thinking.

      Delete
    2. I completely agree with that theory. :)

      Delete
    3. it's a way to do it ^^ and since i use your way ^^ we are both using that element to determine if it's indie or not but now some author started being published then went indie or have a series published and the other self published thus indie... i had to change several from my little pre made list really frustrating

      Delete
    4. I have no clue what I would even pick if I was chosen. Its so hard now a days to keep track. I know a few of the authors that I follow have like 3 different publishers. Very frustrating.

      Delete
    5. you can do like me first selection something brenda featured, then something only in ebook format ( often the case for indie).. you can pick teh donor for example or the new one^^ it help to choose^^
