Dammit, We Missed IndieReCon!

IRCHeader6

Indie ReCon, an interweb conference for self-publishing writers and their support groups, ended yesterday, and from all reports was a worthwhile event chock full of info for what are now called – and rightly so – indie writers and publishers.

We meant to write about this last week, when you could have, you know, actually attended the event. But what with one thing and another, the post got lost in the scheduling shuffle. (Maybe cuz it wasn’t about TV writing per se, but hell, writing’s writing, no?)

The good news, however, is that the Indie ReCon site is still up, and on it are the most helpful articles we’ve ever read for self-publishing indie writers et al. For example:

    Just a head’s up — while the site says the material (blogs, vlogs, chats) will be left up indefinitely, they will actually not be left up on the internet for long – the Con plans to pull all of it and put it into a book. So, you may want to copy and paste what you can into a document, or print it out and make a binder.
