The problem is both +Charles Dowd
and I are too polite to spam our stuff at people, and we worry about overdoing any level of self-promotion.
So we need indies promoting each other instead. Which I do a lot...I am a happy fan of +The Biscuit Brothers
, +Monty Harper
, +Hilah Johnson
, and +Lilith Dark
, and thus will happily mention any of those any time I have even the slightest reason. Then it's not spammy because I don't have any financial gain from any of those entities doing well...I simply truly enjoy their stuff and want them to do well so I can have more of it. And I want others to have more of it too.
I probably should do a big separate post of my own about indies promoting other indies...maybe later. For now, go buy +Lilith Dark
by +Charles Dowd
because it's a superb female-positive comic about a little girl who fights beasties.

Then go out and tell your friends about all of the good #indie
stuff you love, because that's the only real way we indie creators ever sell anything.
(See, even here, I won't promote my stuff. I always hope fans will do that instead.)
