  1. I LOVED indierecon this year. Thank you for all your hard work in supporting this community and helping us on our own indie journeys. I would love to see more about how to take who we are and what we do and mold it into a marketable brand that we’ll love to share. It’s been hard for me to figure out where to start and how to make it work.

  2. I’ve found some neat ideas this week. I’m getting more and more comfortable with marketing my books, but reviews are a big mystery to me. I’d love to learn how to get legitimate reviews

  3. Let’s try this again … I can honestly say I learned a lot from IndieReCon this year, and have really enjoyed this week’s Marketing Mania. Keep up the good work! I’d like to see more on using social media, especially for those of us who’re strapped for time.

  4. I enjoyed this week’s Marketing Mania immensely. I’ve printed out all the posts and will refer to them as I prepare to launch my debut novel. I would like to hear more about IndieReCon ’14. Thanks for all your fine efforts :)

  5. I’m very happy to hear you’re planning on holding INdieRecon 2014. I would love to see workshops on how to take marketing to the next level after setting up your blog and social media sites.

  6. I’d love to know how to get more legit reviews. I’ve sent requests to lots of bloggers that seem like they would like my books based on their reading and blogs but most never respond.
