My newest site: The Independent Author Index

I’m so proud of this latest site that I’ve launched.

The Independent Author Index.

I started it with 12 independent authors on 18 March 2012, and I’ve already increased that number to 43 authors! Including me, there are 44 profiles.

People seem to really like it so far, and I’m really pleased about that.

Today I featured an independent author who is only six years old! She denotes half the proceeds from her book sales to NICUs. I think that’s amazing.
