I've just added a blog John Zunski to my follow list. You can see his blog at John Zunski Blog it looks good, the content is different and you'll enjoy what John has to say. Have a look.
Here is what John had to say about the Big 6 publishing houses:-
What I’m suggesting will not cost much time or money. When considering purchasing your next read, I ask that you purchase from an Indie Author and spread the word using social media outlets. Here’s an example:
Occupy Big Six. Discontents – @James Wallace Birch #Occupy #OB6
Include Occupy Big Six, Title, and Author along with hash Tags #occupy and #OB6 and whatever tags you can fit.
If you believe in the democratization of publishing, I encourage you to participate. I believe this is a simple and effective method to get the word out. Let’s go viral.
GO FOR IT JOHN, I'M RIGHT BEHIND YOU.
