*I wrote this post on Monday and I’m going to leave it up for the rest of the week. I’m having thirteen people over for Thanksgiving this year, so I gotta clean and cook! (Turkey with rosemary/ pancetta/ orange butter anyone?) Then on Friday, time to bust out the Christmas tree! I’ve also been managing to write 300-500 words a day on Rebellion. No, not impressive word count, but it’s what I can do at the moment. I’m hoping to get a lot done this weekend. Happy holidays!
This morning I got some of my holiday shopping done on the internet and I ended up buying a lot of indie authored books for people on my list. It occurred to me that last year when I was shopping for gifts, I hadn’t gone indie yet and didn’t even know about indie authors, and therefore didn’t have nearly as many excellent and affordable books to choose from. The experience of purchasing something that was created by someone who will chat with you on Facebook or comment on your blog or even thank you for supporting them is great! I think for most of us indie authors the dream is to get to write full-time and I know that it made me feel good to contribute to other writers achieving this dream. So, I thought I’d compile a list of indies I enjoy in the hopes that you might support them this holiday season. In most cases the books are available in several formats, including paperback.
This is by no means a comprehensive list. I’ve either read these authors or had them recommended to me. Also, the categorization…many of these people write across all genres.
For more comprehensive lists, please check out: Indie Reader and Indie Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. Also, all the book bloggers I have listed in the sidebar read indie, it would behoove you to check out their blogs for even more indie goodness!
Please feel free to share the websites of any indie authors you would recommend in the comments. I’m sure every author listed here could contribute at least 10! Writers are readers, after all. 🙂
