Indie Author Fringe Winners and Request for Feedback

ALLi Pen Logo for Indie Author Fringe IAFWe wrapped up another successful Indie Author Fringe at the weekend and want to say thanks to our fabulous sponsors and speakers who help us keep our online conference “Free to Attend”. We also want to thank you for attending, and helping us spread the word.

The speakers provided a wealth of self-publishing advice about the craft of writing and how to publish your book. Topics that were relevant to different skill levels and genres, so no matter where you are in your indie author journey there was something for you.

Book Description Competition

Our Book Description winner is: Author Kris Bowes:

oz-and-the-fury-web-contest-entryTommy Oswald doesn’t go to school, and he’s never had a friend. He lives in the dingy attic of a rundown house, on a farm that doesn’t grow much of anything. He’s never visited another town, much less met a griffin, fed an amphisbane, or caught a fireball. His grandmother would never allow such things.

But when an unusual stranger knocks on his door with an invitation to a school he’s never heard of, on a planet he didn’t know existed, everything changes. There he finds legendary creatures, friendships he’d only ever read about, and someone who he thought died long ago. If twelve-year-old Tommy survives his adventures, he’ll find the tremendous destiny that’s been waiting for him… but first Tommy will have to face the Fury.


We also hosted giveaways on a new platform called Gleam, and have emailed each of the winners to notify them of their good fortune, and here’s who won these great prizes from our speakers:
