The first Friday the 13th of the year is almost upon us, there’s less than 24 hours to go, and for the superstitious among us, that’s a problem because something bad is bound to happen – I’ve already taken care of my bad luck, I sprained my ankle yesterday and discovered a whole bunch of editing changes I made to my wip over the last few days haven’t been saved.
I’m hoping that that is all the bad luck I have to worry about and tomorrow will pass without incident, to help ensure that, I am going to do what I consider the most sensible thing I can. Outside of the appointment I have for tomorrow morning, I am going to stay at home and keep myself occupied with a good book; I won’t even risk papercuts because I’ll be reading on my Kindle.
If you’re thinking along the same lines as me, may I respectfully suggest you check out the books here http://events.supportindieauthors.com/ it’s an event being run by the SIA group on goodreads, which I’m a part of for the beginning of the year, and especially for Friday the 13th. There is a huge selection of books at bargain prices, in a wide variety of genres to suit all tastes, and for the day itself, many of the books are free, so take a look at what’s on offer and then fill your kindle, or your bookshelf, you won’t need to worry about another Friday the 13th for the rest of the year.
As an added bonus, you can get a warm fuzzy feeling from knowing you’ve helped to support independently published authors. Even if your budget won’t stretch to buying any of the books, you can show your support by sharing the event and helping to spread the word
A big thank you to anyone who does help support us all, no matter how you show your support.
