    The Indie Collaboration To Publish Fourth Entry Into International Anthology Market in April 2014


    The Indie Collaboration will release the fourth entry into its unique anthology series in April 2014. This anthology, Snips, Snails and Puppy Dog Tales is a collection of free original children's tales brought to you by a group of independent authors who call themselves collectively, The Indie Collaboration. In the last six months, The Indie Collaboration has entered into the international market for anthology style print and ebooks with a unique spin on supporting and marketing works for independent authors.


    Contributing author, Alan Hardy says, “The idea of a group of authors who have come together to offer up books to the reading public is an exciting way ahead for indie writers. I think this is important, writers coming together and taking control of their literary destinies and putting themselves forward as a team or brand to the reading public.”


    The founding member, UK-based author Peter John says, “The Indie Collaboration grew out of a group of like-minded independent authors. Together, we decided to show the world how great works of fiction can be created without the involvement of any large publishing companies. Creating a direct channel between ourselves and our readers is of the utmost importance to us.”


    The first three entries in the collection are Tales from Dark Places: The Halloween Collection, Yuletide Tales: A Festive Collective and Kiss and Tales: A Romantic Collection. The list of contributors for each collection changes depending on each individual contributor’s interests and area of writing specialty.


    Contributing author Kristina Blasen says, “Reading anthologies is a great way to tap into a wealth of mostly undiscovered, yet very talented writers. We are truly a diverse group of writers and we have members from all over the world. It shows in the unique stories and collections that we are able to create.”


    The next installment to be released by The Indie Collaboration will be published in Summer 2014.
