Every Tuesday 9pm EST, the Indelibles host #INDIEchat – a twitter gathering where we discuss all things indie publishing. Each week is a different topic, and we’ve had lots of interesting guests (chat transcripts are posted the day after). I’m extra excited for tonight’s chat, as our guest is my latest indie author-hero Hugh Howey and our topic is Short Stories (see my recent blog series on shorts: Reading It, Critiquing It, Writing It). Hugh’s recent rise as a self-publishing star was due to the popularity of his 50 page novella Wool (subsequently turned into a series) which he sold the film rights to (and has Ridley Scott attached):
I hope you’ll stop by #INDIEchat tonight to discuss short stories with Hugh Howey!
Day: TONIGHT, Tuesday, July 24th
Time: 9pm – 10pm EST
Where: on Twitter, follow the #indiechat hashtag
If you’ve never joined a twitter chat before, it’s easy: just log on to twitter and follow the #indiechat hashtag. Things can move pretty fast in #indiechat (lots of people joining the conversation), so I usually use tweetchat – it works the same as twitter (just log in and follow #indiechat), but it automatically adds the hashtag at the end of your messages, making sure you stay part of the conversation, and highlights when people respond to your tweets.
