Supporting Independent Authors 

Since starting this journey to become a published author, I have discovered a whole treasure trove of independent, self-published authors that I had no idea existed - until a few short months ago.  What can I say, I do not get out much.

Many thanks to by writer friend, Nellie and to Indies Unlimited for getting me hooked on self-published authors.

Being the book worm that I am, it is exciting for me to see all of these new authors in e-book form. I believe my spending will grow in the coming months, as I work my way through the list of all of the e-books that are out there and purchase those that I want to read.

I like the underdog and most always root for their success.  Grass-roots efforts also have a special place in my heart.  I firmly believe that independent authors should help other independent authors by reading their works, and also by writing reviews - whether good or bad or mediocre.

One must begin somewhere in both reading and writing ... Below are the first two reviews I have written on Amazon.  I hope these reviews help other readers to decide to purchase (or not -  if the book is bad).

Lastly, to all of my new found author friends.  Keep those e-books coming, I would hate to run out of things to read  - now that I am hooked on independent authors. :-)


  1. Thanks for the reference. And like you, I'm loving the whole ePubbing world. As our consultant, Ken, says, "I'm going broke $1.99 at a time." So much good stuff to read out there now. Just wish the advertising wasn't so difficult.

    Good luck with your writing. You're gonna be well known in the not too distant future.

  2. Thanks Nellie. I like to give credit where credit is due. Good luck with the launch of your upcoming book. I am so excited for you. :-)
