Did you know we're on Instagram?! IngramSpark has joined the Instagram #writingcommunity, and we couldn't be more excited! With millions of writing-related hashtags, Instagram is the perfect place to connect with other self-published authors. Following along with each other on the self-publishing journey is not only inspiring, but can also help you learn new ways to market your book, reach more readers, or even improve your writing skills!
Be an #IngramSparkAuthor
We are dedicated to celebrating the #IngramSparkAuthor, including show-stopping book covers, self-publishing inspiration, and making a book stand-out from the crowd. If you're an IngramSpark author and want to be featured on our Instagram, simply tag @IngramSparkBooks in your pictures and videos to be considered. You can also tag us in your Instagram stories! We would love to see your book writing process, author events, or ways that IngramSpark is helping you reach your author goals. Being part of the #IngramSparkAuthor community means that you don't have to self-publish alone. We're all cheering you on!
Don't Forget to Record Your #SparkUnboxing
There is nothing like the moment you see and hold your book for the first time, or the second time, or...does it ever get old?! We get it! This is your work of art that you've poured your heart and soul into and the unboxing moment is one that should be captured forever. Make sure that you have your camera ready when you crack open your IngramSpark box and tag us in your videos with the hashtag #SparkUnboxing for a chance to be featured. Bonus points if you do a little dance with your book!
