Yep. You heard it hear first! The Light and Dark Awethologies are celebrating a year of FREE Downloads. That is over 2,500 downloads between the two books on kindle alone.
This was a journey and a half to produce with early 50 authors and 50 short stories or poems written, edited by a team and publishing by my company for FREE. These books are aroudn 600 pages which consist of around 25 stories in each one. Some wonderful stories.
What did we learn?
#Awethors as a group discovered TEAM WORK, we discovered diversity, plenty of challenges. These books are FREE! The group use them as give aways and promotion to share and introduce their fans and readers to new authors. For some of the participants – it was the first Anthology they had ever participated in. It took many months to organise and with the right team in place we pulled it off, along with an amazing event to celebrate.
The event was worldwide starting in New Zealand and Austraila and finishing in England, via the USA & Europe. This shows how much diversity is in the group, how the different cultures worked together to show the world that Indie Authors are AWESOME. We work together, supporting each other with our different knowlege, skills and expertise.
Editoral Team were exceptional and a huge relief to many. I can’t remember all the names though THANK YOU ALL.
Print, eBook and Publishing were done by me. It was a huge learning curve to put together over 20 stories in each bo0k, especially when it came to the Print vesion. It was also an exercise in how to get books up PERMAFREE on Kindle. A confusing time, considering how easy it was to do on Smashwords and later Draft to Digital.
