Interviews with Indie Authors”. I found the book to be a wealth of resources from independent authors and I learned a lot from them. In addition, the Ridgways donate half of the proceeds to deserving charities in Africa. This inspired me to finalize a half-baked idea I had rolling around in my head.
Therefore, I would like to introduce “The Indie Five” which is a loose collection of indie authors, artists, and musicians that pledge 5% of their royalties to charity. I am pledging 5% of my royalties to Seeds of Literacy in Cleveland, Ohio. This organization does wonders in battling illiteracy in my town.
