Having been an "Indie" author myself for the past 2 years, and knowing thousands of other "Indies", I'm a little tired of hearing what a bad rap Indie authors have. Yes, we all know that there have been plenty of books uploaded to Amazon long before they should have been, but is that really a good reason to color all Indie authors with the same brush? "Experts" in stats continually spout, "The numbers show..." What numbers, and where are they getting them? I haven't seen one poll yet (though they may well exist) that tells me what people actually think. After all, YOU are more than a number. Once and for all I'd like to hear what YOU, the buying public, actually think of Indie authors based on books you've purchased from them. Please take this survey, and answer honestly. I'll post the results when I feel like I've gotten enough of a sampling. Thank you!
