I hope you enjoy this installation of the Indie Author Weekly Update. I’ve got quite a potpourri for you. Don’t miss Jane Friedman’s look at platform building as well as Joanna Penn’s video on looking forward to accomplishing your goals in 2017. Both are great pieces. There are many great posts in this week’s update and I hope you have time to check them all out.
On a more personal note, I hope you had a lovely holiday break. I know that I did. And best of all, it’s been raining here in Northern California, where we’ve suffered a terrible drought in recent years. So that’s cause for celebration, right? Okay, get busy and enjoy the weekly updates!
