The Independent Author Network is a group of like minded authors who are self published or published by a small indie press. The group is open to authors who are active social networkers at sites like Twitter, facebook, and LinkedIn etc. The members share info, ideas, and experiences from self publishing and promotion. The group works together to promote each other online. Each member receives a free IAN Member page with an author BIO and up to three books included with buy links. The same three books can also be added to the Book Directory pages. The only cost is a few minutes of each author’s time per week.
