Indie Book Day

In 2013, we invented Indie Book Day (or Indiebookday, as we spell it here).

There are a lot of wonderful independent publishers out there, creating great books and putting a lot of passion into it. But many of them are very little known. The Indiebookday can help to create some attention and show the beauty of independent publishing. Here is how it works:

 

On Indiebookday, visit a local book store and buy a book. Any book you would like to have. All that matters is that it's been published by an independent publisher.
Then post a picture of the book, the cover or yourself with the book (or whatever you like) on a social network (like Facebook, Twitter, Google+) or on your blog, using the Hashtag "#indiebookday". If you like this event, invite others to join in.
The first Indiebookday in 2013 has received widespread attention throughout the german speaking countries. In 2014 and 2015 readers, publishers and bookstores in UK, the Netherlands, Italy and Portugal joined in. And the event is still growing bigger!
