The concept behind the July 1st gathering will be to utilize social media and photo sharing to connect independent authors from around the world. Each author who participates will share a photo of themselves with their books and the hashtag #IndieBooksBeSeen on Twitter.
The goal of using twitter as the hosting point for the movement is to bring attention to the “indie revolution” taking place worldwide and in one place.
SBPRA will help build awareness for the event through their social networks and internal promotion to their authors and clients, encouraging all to participate.
The movement founder, Mark Shaw (@MarkTheShaw)
When asked what was his motivation was for starting this effort Mr. Shaw quoted, “Many talented authors are getting lost in the shuffle and are struggling to gain ground with their books. I wanted to do something to drawn attention to our industry by getting as many authors involved as possible.”
Social media allows for groups of people to join a community online and support a common goal, purpose or cause. SBPRA is a firm believer in the power of social media and its advantageous ability to grow an author’s digital footprint.
By participating in the movement, authors have the opportunity to promote their book, generate more interest in self-publishing, and show a sense of pride and unity in being part of the indie author movement.

ABOUT: For Mark A. Shaw, growing up in the concrete, urban environment of Baltimore, Maryland only cultivated a stronger appreciation for that which he had little of –wilderness and countryside. It also fostered in him a vibrant imagination and captivating creativity, and he began crafting stories in his mind at an early age. Mark draws his inspiration from a lifetime of adventures – from his childhood play with a whimsical stick and blanket, which became his magical instruments for commanding the wind, to his current life in Vancouver B.C., where he strolls through nearby woods and forests much like those portrayed in his first novel, The Keeper of the Wind. Mark is a U.S. Navy veteran. You can view Mark’s Amazon page here: http://www.amazon.com/
