Indie Author day is the perfect time to look at a changing landscape

Here at the Indy, we appreciate things that are, well, indie. Independent creators, whether they be authors, artists, filmmakers or musicians, often work outside the margins and stick to their vision without restriction from a publisher — and without the benefits of a publisher’s resources. Indie Author Day, a national initiative, is meant to recognize the hard work of these creators (such as Kate Jonuska, whose novel Transference is pictured above). Our own local celebration should prove worthwhile for authors and readers alike. Hosted by Pikes Peak Library District in honor of Arts Month, Indie Author Day will include panels and demonstrations by all kinds of independent creators, discussing the changing landscape of the indie world. In a digital age, it is much easier to share the things we create, but how does that affect the indie industries that provide us with countless hours of entertainment and enrichment? This is a good chance to find out.
