In advance, happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I know not everyone here on WordPress celebrates manifest destiny and the destruction of a native people, but all the same, have a good one!
For most of us, Thanksgiving is about food, family, and giving thanks for everything we have. At least that’s what it means to me. And this year I’m grateful for many things, most of all getting to spend another holiday with my mother and being a published author.
I know I complain about the trials and tribulations of being indie author in today’s over-saturated and ever-volatile market, but there are many things that indie authors should be grateful for this thanksgiving. Here are ten:
1. A Variety of Alternatives to Traditional Publishing
2. Word of Mouth (AKA, Free Marketing)
3. Positive Reviews
4. Any Reviews
5. The Internet
6. Local Bookstores and Libraries
8. Caffeinated and alcoholic beverages
9. Friends, family, and cats
Is there anything I forgot? What are you grateful for? Please share in the comments below and I’ll see you on Black Friday!
