IndieReCon and The A to Z Challenge

Have you heard of IndieReCon? It's this awesome online writing conference focusing on Indie publishing. There will be LOADS of informative posts, live chats, tips, prizes -- and best of all, it's FREE! It's happening online at this address from Tues Feb 19th (which is TODAY) till Thurs Feb 21st.



And ... I'm pretty sure I don't have to ask if you've heard of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge! So. After telling everyone that I would NOT be taking part in the challenge this year, I developed a major case of fomo and have given in once again! *sigh* Last year I exhausted myself writing a new flash fiction every day, so I've set myself a much easier theme for this year. Book covers! I'll be featuring different covers each day that have recently caught my eye, with titles starting with the relevant letter, mainly from self-published/indie authors.



Will you be "attending" IndieReCon? 
Have you signed up for the A to Z Challenge, 
and if so, do you have a theme planned for your posts?

I'm not planning to self-publish at this point but I do plan to check out some of the conference.

I'm not doing the A-Z challenge because it doesn't fit with our blog. But I enjoy reading some of the posts.

Love your theme for A to Z! I'm planning on hopping in and out of the conference today . . . I'm looking forward to being as much of a part of it as I can.

Yes it's my first year doing the A-Z challenge. All the way with Indie-Con and my A-Z theme will be on my novella series The Sacrifice. Can't wait to read about the covers you chose.

You knew you couldn't stay away! Sounds like a great theme.

Gwen Gardner said...

Book covers are an excellent theme, Rachel! Can't wait to check it out.

This is my first A-Z and I sort of got my idea from you last year. My theme is paranormal and I will feature a creature, place or someting subject-related each day from my book. I'm already working on it (okay, I'm just at "B") because I don't want to be stressed everyday during April - plus I'm a minion this year.

J.L. Campbell said...

I've been looking forward to both.

Krista McLaughlin said...

That's a neat idea for a theme! My theme is still under wraps for now. Not that it's incredibly exciting, but I'm excited for it. :)

I'm hoping to have time to catch up on some IndieReCon tomorrow! And I love your theme for A-Z!

This is my first year to A to Z and I find it motivating. Unfortunately I've been editing my haiku collectiions these days and didn't know about indie recon so... I'll check it but I would have loved some live ideas and feedback.

Kittie Howard said...

A great A-Z idea. I almost wavered and signed up, but the Bayou Princess prevailed.

fomo????

Welcome aboard, regardless! :)

Rachel Morgan said...

fomo = fear of missing out!

Well, I missed IndieCon but I love your idea for the A to Z challenge. I love looking at book covers and finding great indie authors. Looking forward to reading your posts!
