What is I.A.N? It stands for Independent Author Network.
The Independent Author Network is a group of like minded authors who are self published or published by a small indie press. The group is open to authors who are active social networkers at sites like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn etc. The group works together to support and promote each other online.
You pay a one off small fee for a page where you send them your information, book information and buying links and you promote it.
I share the link on my Facebook pages and twitter. I have tweeted about my page 3 times a day since I joined in mid April and for the month of April I had 1,006 hits to that page! All because I tweeted and used the #IAN1 which meant others could re-tweet and as a group we do regularly re-tweet.
I would definitely recommend this site to anyone looking for more exposure.
