Easy Peasy. Tell us what #Indie book you’re #Currentlyreading right now 2015. #IndieRoar
Oh, and don’t forget to include the #IndieRoar hashtag so we can see your entry!
And yes, this challenge is easy! But know that it’s the easiest one you’re going to get! We’re going to start hitting higher octane levels from here on out. 🙂
I was reading ‘The Shadow Rises’ Book 1 in the Witch-Hunter Series by K.S. Marsden
Tweet a pic of the actor/actress you would like to portray your fave Indie book character! #IndieRoar
First, figure out your favorite Indie book character (for a stand-alone, or a series). Second, choose which real-world actress, or actor should portray your favorite character if the book was turned into a movie. Hmmm…right?! So many choices! So, many folks to choose from! And, which pic of them to tweet out? You never know, maybe you want the actor the way they looked say, 10, 20 – ahem – 30 years ago? J
Only YOU can decide!
Sparkle, tweet and ROAR!

Tweet a memorable line for an Indie book you’ve read. #IndieRoar
Wowsers! What a tweet-erific day yesterday! You guys are super creative! Hollywood could use some of you fab casting directors! You guys tweeted pics of Selena Gomez, Micheal Ealy, Matthew McConaughey, Chris & Liam Hemsworth, Rihanna, Helen Mirren, Glenn Close, Kate Beckinsale and many many more!
Today’s challenge is to dig a bit deeper and tweet the sentence you absolutely LOVE from an Indie book you’ve read. It can be a sentence you love, or hate. A sentence that moved you, or made you mad. In essence, it has to be a sentence that polarized you one way or another!
“I did not lay a hand on her, and yet her soul floated free above her body. It hung there, a beautiful shade of shimmering rose gold; an old soul in a young body”
From ‘Wings of Darkness’ by Sherri A. Wingler
This Challenge I believe was to share a picture of yourself with an Indie Author
Obviously I did not know anyone at the time so I created my own LOL
Kelly S Marsden & I
I hope Kelly didn’t mind we have actually become friends I discovered she lives in my old town. Small world.
Predict the title of your favorite Indie author’s next book! (Funny, or serious — you choose!) #IndieRoar
Today’s challenge is more intellectual. We want to know just how well you know — or, think you know! — your favorite Indie author and his/her work. Tell us what you think they will name their next work. You can’t tell us a book name that the author has already shared via cover reveal, or an interview!:-)
As always…keep it Indie trendy!
Go out into the world and proclaim your love of Indie books and authors! Publicly tweet your passion in action! #IndieRoar
What do we mean? Go out into the world and take your Indie love, passion & gumption and share with us! Take your favorite book to the park and have lunch with it! Snap a shot and let us see! Heck, if you wanna say, “I Love Indie!” do it in a BIG way! (Just don’t get arrested…)
Feel like High Tea with you favorite author? Make it happen however you can! Craving a day out and about? At the races? At the dog park? Maybe at the zoo? Show us how you INDIE! ‘Cause indie is a way of life in addition to HOW we come to market.
Bring your creativity to the fore and show us your #IndiePride!
Create and tweet a Wordle you created for/about your favorite Indie book/series/author! #IndieRoar
What’s a Wordle? It’s a great pictogram that contains words of your choosing that relate to your favorite book, series, or author — Indie, of course!
You can find the Wordle page here — http://www.wordle.net/

Today is the #Selfie #IndieRoar Day! Show us your coolest, most chic, selfie!
What’s not to love? It’s a selfie! Get wild and crazy and do YOU in front of your camera!
You scream. I scream. We all scream for…your 5 all-time favorite Indie books! #IndieRoar
It’s all about the read. We do all that we do as writers so that someone else out there can kick back on the beach, in the park, or snuggled in their bed with (hopefully!) our books.
So, which Indie authors, or Indie books inspire you? Pick 5 and tell us why. Post on your blog, or website and tweet out the link so we know which reads get your heart pumping!

Pen your own perfect first sentence to your “Great American Novel” and tweet it! #IndieRoar
Today is the final day of our challenge. Are you sad? Are you glad? Either way, we have to go out with a BANG. What kind of Indies would we be if we didn’t write something special for our readers?!
In honor of our collective readers, write the first line of your next novel, the novel you’d always dreamed you would write the novel your mother/brother/teacher/mentor/friend/husband told you to write — write the first sentence of that book. (Click image to enlarge)
Did you spot anything here? The line is from ‘Seal Mother’ which I am only just now on the verge of completing. It just goes to show how long it can take to create a book.
The end is nigh. The fat…ahem…the lady has sung the final aria and the curtain is about to fall. How will we remember you? Haunt us. Pleasure us. Entertain us. We’ll love you for it!
This was such great fun and like I mentioned in a previous post
I was Joint 1st Prize Winner
