    What a wonderful post, and such a great way to pay it forward.

    The indie route requires a unique and special courage that too often goes unacknowledged.
    I’ve noticed that indie writers possess a special beauty, if they can help another writer, they do so without hesitation.
    Make an indie artist happy – I agree!
    Happy IWSG day!ReplyCancel

    Thank you for your lovely words! Going indie is a hard route, but I’m determined to follow my dream and become a published author. Best of luck to you with your dream!ReplyCancel

    Writers are only type of artist. Creativity is a wonderful thing in all its forms. 🙂

    I love supporting indie artists too, and am one myself. Indie artists always seem the underdog because they are doing it all on their own with no big company to help. I think that makes success all the better.

    Also, you mentioned knitting. KNITTING FTW!ReplyCancel

    What a great post. I love the cover of that book; the temple is gorgeous! I always support indie authors by reading an reviewing their books and stories whenever I have the opportunity. Thanks so much for participating this month. Eva, IWSG co-hostReplyCancel

      Reviews are a great way to support indies! Thanks for stopping by, Lili!ReplyCancel

    That is some great advice, Lucinda. I have to keep that in mind. I usually try to remember to support indie artists, but it’s easy to forget to take that extra effort to think outside the box.ReplyCancel

      I think it’s easy to get in the habit that no one else knows what you’re going through when, in reality, all indie artists go through it.ReplyCancel

    I also love supporting indies! I try to buy local artist’s work, especially at Christmas time!!

    You have a wonderful attitude, Lucinda, and a noble heart. It’s really hard to make it in the writing business without the big machinery pushing you up. We need to support each other, encourage other writers, and be happy for each one of us who makes it.

    Best wishes!ReplyCancel
