Indie Authors

Since joining Instagram a year or so ago I’ve ‘met’ hundreds of interesting writers and authors, many of whom are intending to publish independently, if they haven’t already done so. They are all very supportive and if I’m puzzling about some aspect of publishing I know I can just ask Instagram and someone will know the answer. Thank you, guys!

These are some of the accounts I follow:
