Summer officially arrives tomorrow in the US, and that means much more news and book releases! What were authors doing this past week? Read on for the latest:

Currently, the Independent Author Network is seeing around 45,000 hits per month.

The Polka Dot Banner is seeking authors who are willing to post blogs, at a minimum of once per month, on their topic of expertise. More specifically, on the pulse of their particular genre, offer marketing tips and hints, and -whenever possible - share ways they and other are selling more books. Participating authors will receive their own blog "headquarters," a direct to their blog tab, site highlights, newsletter features, and upgraded PDB perks free.In addition, if all goes well, PDB will be offering incentives (gift cards and other surprises) for those blogs which help draw more traffic to the site each month. For those who would like to participate send an email via the web site.
