The new Awesome Indies website should be live now, and the sale will have started. Those of us in Australia get in first because it’s 6.15 pm here while the Americans are still asleep and the British are just waking up.
In some ways, the banner says it all, but it doesn’t mention the enormous amount of work that has gone into setting up the new Awesome Indies website, or what a huge improvement it is on the old site.
The old site suffered from me growing it from a simple blog that didn’t have the tools to make it the way it should be, and when I shifted it to a self-hosted site, I just didn’t have time (or the skills) to make it into anything other than a slightly fancier version of what it was was before.
Any of you who tried to buy a book through the site would have found some confusion in the linking, and mostly only links to the Kindle store. Now it’s all clear – nice little buttons to take you to whatever store and whatever kind of file you want.
So please make all my hard work and that of my wonderful team of helpers – – worthwhile by clicking through and visiting the site.
Take a look at the general layout, then visit the sale page (you’ll see it in the top menu) and then visit the blog for the Kindle giveaway (you’ll have to buy a book before you can enter, which is fair enough, don’t you think?)
