At Indie Navigator, we really like Skype (liked it better before Microsoft got ahold of it, but that’s a done deal). It’s is a great tool for communicating around the world, on major computer platforms and mobile, and mostly for free. It’s my preferred mode for consultation, which is explained on our How We Work page. That gives a pretty good overview, but perhaps you’re not sold on the idea.
In that case, below is a PDF for you that explains in a bit more detail. It even tells you how to get started, so download and give it a whirl! I guarantee you’ll see why we like it so much. And no, we don’t get any kickbacks or anything – it’s just a cool tool you should know about as someone seeking success as an author or indie publisher.
