This Week at The Showcase
We’ve made a couple of slight adjustments to our memberships and blog this week, so we thought we’d better fill everyone in.
Before today, our Resources Membership was a yearly rate of $30/£20. We’ve decided to go overboard on making this an even more appealing promotional tool for anyone wishing to promote their services to Indie Authors. The rate is staying the same, but now it’s just a one-off set-up fee and then no renewals. This applies to both new and existing Resource memberships.

We’ve also gone a little crazy on the pricing for our Tweet Membership for authors and halved the prices. So now if you want to send 50, 100 or 200 tweets out to over 165k+ @Selfpubshowcase followers you can do so at the ridiculously low prices shown below.
50 Tweets (up to 10 per day) NOW $7 USD / £6 GBP / $8 AUD (Previously $14 USD / £12 GBP / $16 AUD)
100 Tweets (up to 10 per day) NOW $12.50 USD / £10.50 GBP / $14 AUD (Previously$25 USD / £21 GBP / $28 AUD)
200 Tweets (up to 10 per day) NOW $22 USD / £18.50 GBP / $23.50 AUD (Previously $44 USD / £37 GBP / $47 AUD)

Great news here too! We enjoyed our Open Blog Weekends so much we’ve decided to keep our blog Open to all, all year round!
The rules are simple:
You don’t need to be a member to send us a post.
We have 2 blogs here on the site. You can either write a self-promotional piece telling us about your resource for authors for our Resources Blog (your editing, publishing, cover designing business, etc.), or any authors out there can write a blog piece giving either a taste of your experiences (my top ten rules before publishing, five things I know now that I wish I’d known then, etc.) or a short story/poem for our Blog.
Please avoid simply ‘check out my books’ posts – we’re looking for something with a little more substance and of some help, whether to reader or writer.
Word Limit – No more than 4000 words. We’ll be counting!
To avoid paid advertising type posts, you are allowed to include one link in your blog entry – This needs to be back to your own website or blog. This avoids us having to turn down numerous posts for spam. Our judgment in this is final. Self-promotion as the author of your post is fine. Promoting other companies or individuals is a no.
If you have a topic and are unsure if it fits the bill, email us! We don’t bite, and we’ll be as helpful as possible in getting you involved.
If your piece is deemed to promote anything inappropriate, we’ll carefully file it away under T for Trash. But, we’re sure none of you would do anything like that, right?
We’re hoping as many of you as possible get involved. It’s free exposure after all.
So… Get scribbling! Get planning! If you have something ready to go email it now.
If you have any questions, do just email us. We truly mean it when we say we want as many of you to get involved as possible. So don’t be shy!
The email address for submissions and questions on blogging is OpenBlog[at]Selfpublishersshowcase.com. We’ll be waiting!
So that’s about it for this week. Hope we’ve got something in there to grab your attention. If not… there’s always next week!
