You’re reading a “Top Website for Self-Publishers” – thank you!

TGIF, folks.

Friday mornings usually start off a little slow for me. Actually MOST mornings start off a little slow for me. I’m not an early bird by any means!


Last Friday, I sleepily flipped open my Mac as usual, put on some music, took a sip of coffee, and opened up my email. Out of the gazillion emails, one message jumped out at me and I read it right away:


“I’ve been admiring your work for a while now and we at The Alliance of Independent Authors ( would like to award you our ‘Best Website for Indie Authors’ award.”


I admit that I did a little happy dance right there and then! :)


30 Day Books is delighted to receive this award by The Alliance of Independent Authors.
