Keeping an Eye on Indie ReCon

Keeping busy. Yep, thaaaat’s the plan. Fortunately for me, I have plenty to keep me occupied at the moment. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m participating in an online course to learn more about Scrivener, my favourite software IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD. So far, so good– two classes down, homework done, no major issues. Yippee!

The other thing that’s happening right now is Indie ReCon. For anyone who hasn’t heard about this, it’s a free (FREE!!!) online conference that’s alllll about independent pulishing: the hows, the whys, the what-the-heck-am-I-doings. They’ve got guest speakers, chats, webinars, articles… probably no dancing bears, but you never know. The full schedule is here, and like I said, it’s free. I plan on dropping by frequently.

Oh, and prizes. There are giveaways during every event, and a grand prize of a Kobo Aura with BOOKS.

Today was day one (and only running until the 27th), so it’s not too late to get caught up. The full schedule is here. Plan accordingly.

Susan Kaye Quinn* contributed a webinar video thingamabobber on facing your fears (click here), which I really enjoyed. It seemed relevant to my interests, considering yesterday’s terrified confusion and brainsplosion.

I think this is going to be good.

*Author of the fantastic Indie Author Survival Guide, which I’ve mentioned here before. Really useful.
