  1. Hi,

    My name is Amy Edelman and I created IndieReader (www.indiereader.com) to promote, sell and legitimize, self-published (aka indie) books.

    I wanted to introduce myself and the site with the hope that you might want to mention or link to us. We feature reviews, resources and a monthly, online magazine called The Indie Reader that includes interesting features and interviews.

    Please let me know.

  2. Hi Gregory
    I filled out the questionaire and tried to send it to you.
    however, that did not work! do you another e-mail?

    I thank you by advance



  3. I’ve tried tried twice to upload my book, but comes back rejected for being an unsolicited email. Am I doing something wrong?

  4. the gregb e-mail link on your site isn’t working for submissions. FYI.

  5. Hi, Greg,

    I don’t think you got my e-mail with questions about being featured and another question, so I’m sending it again. I hope you get this one!

    Thanks for your help. Here’s the one I sent:
    Dear Greg,

    I have an Indie book I’d like to submit with your questionnaire, but I’m not sure of when to do this. I’m publishing through Book Baby and it probably won’t be out for a couple, maybe three months. Should I send it now because there’s a wait, or should I hold it until the book comes out?

    Also, can you explain your services for advertising an e-book? How might it help me promote it other than using my own FB site? What is the cost? Please let me know.

    Thanks for all your help, Greg. I really appreciate it.

    Best wishes,
    Catherine DePino
