I am super happy to announce that we’re still on track for a January 31st launch date. At that time, I expect to have all the positions filled and begin to roll out weekly features like author interviews, book reviews and other goodies on a regular basis.
We have filled all 11 curator positions to date and now have 5 staff reviewers and 4 associate reviewers who are beginning to review new books. We plan to add another 10-12 reviewers by end of January, so if you’re an avid reader in the crime, horror or humor genres and would like to help us spotlight great independent works, please go HERE.
I’d like to personally thank Shane Staley of Staley & Associates for taking on the web development of IndieMuse. I knew he built great sites from being a customer at his excellent Horror Mall throughout its existence, but when I took over the site, I was amazed at the backend and frontend he developed. We have live feeds from all major independent authors and publishers coming in every day, programmed into our administration backend. Our site is directly linked to Amazon for a feed of new books and there are about a dozen or more features I can’t even talk about right now. We tried to talk him into staying as our horror editor, but unfortunately couldn’t persuade him, but we’re lucky to have had his assistance as a webmaster. So now we’re also currently looking for a horror editor to fill his interim role he’s vacated and a crime editor to take over that particular hub still. If you are interested, please contact us.
With the right people, we can easily grow this site to be a powerhouse marketing tool for independent authors and publishers. Our news list has grown to more than 4,100 subscribers to date (and we thank each and every one of you for your support and interest!). If you’re reading this on our site and not yet subscribed to our newsletter, you can opt in HERE.
We haven’t even begun to get the word out about our social media presences at Facebook and Twitter (for starters).
