Indie author support & Discussion

Hello fellow members of the IASD

Well, that happened fast, didn’t it – November already!

We had two aims, apart from the ongoing appliance of our collective target (our group’s initials).

First, we wanted to maintain our monthly Featured Author.

Secondly, we had new anthologies we wanted to create.

Featured Authors

When we got the idea underway (two years ago), the author was selected by a secret ballot. Next came my use of a ‘randomiser’ program, which entailed me listing every member’s name. Early this year, thanks to Sylva, I started using the Sociograph program to see who our most active members were in a month. This third method works well and will continue for the foreseeable future.

  1. Hi, Paul. I finally made it to have another look at ‘Blue Revenge’, and the second look confirms for me, it has the makings of a good tale.
    When you get stuck, you need a second opinion, or you need beta readers, I’ll be there, mate.
    I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to check out ‘The Insect Problem’, and it’s another strong intro. I like the theory, which is always important in these tales as you know, but the general feel so far already adds suspense and mystery – which don’t always come together.
    I look forward to how this progresses. It reminded me of a couple of the short pieces produced by my friend Carmen (in Panama). She of the debut collection I’ve just formatted. 😀
    It’s great to see you working on two such different, but engrossing stories. Keep it up, but remember to chill out occasionally.
