I’ve been churning through a bunch of classics lately, some of which I have adored, but I really need to turn my attention now to something more genuine for this blog: reading indie works. As always, let me know if you have an indie book out there, and I might go check it out! I found all of these books by looking on other people’s blogs!
The Fairy Portal – X.E. Lesure
I found this book on the Tumblr page of X.E. Lesure, or indecentpause, who I follow on my Tumblr account (if you want to follow what I do in a MUCH less professional capacity, that’s the place). Lesure usually doesn’t write in my preferred genres of sci-fi or fantasy, but the really intense, realistic YA I’ve seen on their Ao3 and Tumblr accounts shows true skill.
One day, Lesure posted about needing to make some money from their Amazon books, and I saw that a fantasy was available. I decided to purchase The Fairy Portal.
Expedition – Alexander Elliot
I followed Elliot because he was a fellow writer on WordPress, but I didn’t pay much attention to what he wrote because it seemed to be romances. Then, one day, he made a post that described something… sci fi. Something sci fi and not romance. I looked at that post, and I realized I’d followed him for months without figuring out that about half the books he wrote were straight-up space opera.
So I decided to go to Amazon and purchase the first book in his trilogy.
Fire’s Hope – E. Kathryn
I have waited a long time to present this review to you. E. Kathryn’s YA showstopper, Fire’s Hope, is the first in what promises to be a complex series of stories.
I openly admit that I beta read this book, so some objectivity will be lost.
The Leftovers: Something from YOU?
I love beta reading. If you have something you’d like me to beta read, shoot me a line. I’ll almost definitely purchase a copy of your book when it comes out (caveat is if it’s too sketchy a download or payment method), and I’ll definitely put a plug on this wee little blog for you.
Do you have a published book and a method of purchasing it that isn’t sketch as hell? Post a link in the comments! If I think it looks cool, I’ll put it on my list of books to consider reviewing for next month.
One of my primary goals is to support indie authors who are serious about their craft. I hope to hear from you published and self-published writers soon!
