Here's my definition of an Indie author/artist/musician/designer/etc.: A person who is so deeply passionate and intimately in tune with their God-given gift that they are driven to share it with the world--not for money or fame-but for the purpose of connecting with others through his or her creations. If money and fame are a result, then it's just an added blessing!
To everyone who supports Indies, you are part of making our dreams a reality! Your emails, feedback, reviews, purchases and activity on social media are part of the grand conversation about Indies' positive impact on society. Keep it coming!
As a thank you to everyone who purchased the first edition of After the Sixth Day: Notes from a Spiritual Journey, I’d like to give you an e-copy of the newly designed edition! Just take a pic of yourself with my book between today and Sunday, 6/23/2013. Use the hashtag #TrinkaPolite and post it on Facebook and/or Twitter. You can also email your pic to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Then, your gift is on the way!
