Announcing IndieReCon!

Welcome to the official site for IndieReCon, the premiere online writer's conference for the independently minded!

A small group of indie writers has pulled together and is hosting this FREE online conference on everything INDIE in Feb 2013!

Our goal? To make indie publishing a mission possible.

Are you curious about Indie publishing, but don't know where to start?  Or are you already a published Indie author looking to boost your sales or expand your reach?  Then you'll want to attend this exciting online conference happening in 2013 - INDIE Revolution Conference.  Or as we like to call it, IndieReCon.

IndieReCon is happening online from February 19-21, 2013.

IndieReCon is a FREE, ONLINE conference inspired by WriteOnCon. It is designed to help any writer or author who is curious about the ins and outs of Indie publishing. You'll find everything from the pros and cons of Indie publishing, essential aspects in creating a high-quality book, successful online marketing, and expanding into international markets. 

However, ALL authors and writers are invited, because we will cover topics all of you may want to know more about, such as marketing and boosting sales. So there's sure to be something for everyone.

We will feature over 30 guests, including industry experts as well as some of the bestselling adult and young adult authors in the publishing industry today. Come see what wisdom Darcy Chan, CJ Lyons, Bob Mayer, Hugh Howey, M. Leighton, and Samantha Young (just to name a few) have to offer you.  

For three days, INDIE ReCon will highlight new topics every hour (sometimes every half hour) for 8 hours a day, which will include interviews, blog posts, vlogs, and live online chats. You'll receive advice from authors, bloggers, marketing partners, cover designers, editors, and more.  

Did we mention it's FREE and ONLINE? Well, there's more. Tons of Giveaways! There will be awesome giveaways from each and every speaker and partner. This will include books as well as services like free book designs, free editing, book development services, marketing prizes, and more. 

So mark your calendars for Feb 19-21st!

But, more importantly, sign up now with your email and we'll be sure to send you updates, news, and reminders as the conference gets closer so you won't forget (and you'll be automatically entered to win our first giveaway!). 

You won't find this much information (or excitement) about Indie publishing anywhere else. The hosts, partners, and presenters are all giving their time and knowledge for free for one simple reason: they're excited about being Indie and they want to help you decide if it's right for you, and to help you succeed too.  

We hope you will join us at IndieReCon--where we'll help you make Indie publishing a mission possible!

See you there!


Special thanks to our partners:


  1. This sounds awesome, however, I will be in Mexico on these dates and I don't think my husband would take too kindly to the idea of me spending that time on the computer. :( Will everything be available for review after?

  2. I'm having trouble identifying the registration link on this email. Maybe you left it out by mistake? I got the notification via the inimitable Melissa Foster at World Literary Cafe. It asks for an email address, so here it is: cantorron atsymbol aol dotcom.

    Muchas gracias!

  3. Jen - yes! I believe posts will stay up and the transcripts from chats will be posted - we will miss you! Maybe you can just get up early before he gets up and sneak in :)

    Aqua - The registration is on the left side - all it needs is your email. I input yours there.

  4. This is wonderful! Thank you for putting it all together. How very beneficial this will be for writers, and a glorious way to give back to the literary community. Bravo!

  5. I'm very excited! It sounds like a lot of hard work has gone into the planning of Indie ReCon.

  6. Sounds fabulous. I'm in! Where/how do we sign up?

  7. This is such a fabulous idea! You ladies are geniuses, not to mention incredibly generous. I expect this will be a huge success!



  8. Great idea! Shared on my FB Author page. Heads up though, that your FB Share link is not great as it contains the copy from the comment that says the person is going to be in Mexico and can't participate!

  9. I'd like to sign-up as well, but I don't see a link either, and there is nothing on the left (I am on my phone, though?). Is it too late to register now? If not, my address is AngieFayre1988 @ gmail dot com.

  10. simply enter your email in the left hand corner/

  11. I am looking forward to this so very much! What a wonderful idea!

  13. Sounds awesome!!!!

  14. This sounds great. One problem tho, when I'm trying to share theis announcement on FB, the link pops up with the quote from the lady who's going to Mexico, and that's not what's wanted to intro folks to the conference (sorry Jen)

    Could you post a better link we could share with other folks who might like to join up, please?


  15. I really look forward to it - thanks for the opportunity!
