Bookish conversation with author Samantha Wilcoxson.
You can also find me on my blog.
I started this post out as a draft of my July TBR. When I quickly came up with a list of 10 independently published novels that I've been wanting to get around to reading, I decided they needed their own post. Some of these have shown up on my monthly TBRs before, but others are brand new. I've read other works by a couple of these authors (David Pilling & Tony Riches), but the others are new to me.
Some people stay away from indies because they've been burnt. Nobody likes to spend a few dollars - and even more importantly, their precious reading time - on a dud that did not find a major publisher for a reason. Of course, as an independent author myself, I have good reason for giving others a try more often than most. I will say that I find just as many hits (& misses) among indies as I do mass market, but I am also careful about what I read from either source.
If you are interested in testing out the indie waters, maybe some of these sound good to you. Have you read other self-published works that you would recommend? I'd love to hear about them!
