#GiveBackIn | Want to Support Indie Authors? (Start Now!)

In the new year I’ve decided that I want to get back to doing things that make me happy: spending time with people who are awesome, giving back, and supporting others. I want to do things because it’s the right thing to do … not because numbers dictate or it’s how you’re supposed to market or it’s what’s popular. I want to get to know someone, really know them, without having to hear a resume of number of followers or pageviews or why they should be chosen over another blogger, ya know?

A couple of years ago I started something on this blog called the “Give Back Initiative” (#GiveBackIn) where I spotlighted mainly individuals (but sometimes little known groups or orgs) who are doing amazing things.

And then?

Life got in the way and #GiveBackIn kind of fell by the wayside. But, I’m bringing it back! For my first 2014 #GiveBackIn, I wanted to spotlight all of the amazing people that I know who have written books. (PS? I’ve included small publishing houses in my “indie” authors.) Won’t you please consider selecting a few books and supporting these authors in the new year?

If you are an author or know someone who has written a book, please feel free to link it up in the comments of this post!
