Nominate your favourite indie author(s)

I hope, maybe, some of you will nominate Love or Lust certainly I do hope that some indie author or other has put a book out in the past year that has inspired or impressed you enough to nominate he or she.  You can also, by the by, nominate multiple books/authors.

The 50 Self-Published Novels Worth Reading (2013/14)

Nominations Now Open!!!

We need your help in putting together a list of some of the best self-published books from the past year. Read something great? Nominate it. Written something great? Urge a fan to nominate it.

The interest our list has already generated has been phenomenal; in the three days since we opened up nominations it has already become our most popular post ever. That’s great for our ego, but more importantly, it means that whichever books make the list will get the exposure they deserve.

The Rules

1. The book must be self-published or published by a small, “indie-minded” house.
2. The book must have been published on or after 1 January, 2013.
3. The book must be available for purchase, in paperback or ebook format, from a large store – Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
4. Only nominations received on or before 21 April, 2014 will be considered.

Haven’t read a self-published book yet? Here are some we think might be worth your consideration.

Indie Author Land interview

header_2So today if you visit Indie Author Land you’ll find an interview of yours truly.  Though, in frank honesty, there’s nothing in that interview that the regulars here don’t already know, those newer folks can drop by there and learn a little about my book and myself.

Everyone should go there and check out the site for all the other people they’ve interviewed.  A lot of talent and amazing people out there who’ve elected to eschew the traditional publishing model and this is another avenue for finding them and learning that their work exists so that we might purchase and appreciate it.

So, go forth, enjoy.  Read.  Just don’t forget, whatever you find there and decide to buy, rate them.  From wherever you buy their book leave a rating, maybe even a review, but certainly a rating.  Even if you don’t get it on Amazon try to leave a rating there — it has profound impact on their visibility there.

UPADTE: as of right now the interview isn’t up, but neither is anything else dated 24 June.  Either they’re just this side of the international date line, or they haven’t discovered the wonders of scheduled posting (I see that their site is powered by WordPress, same as mine).  Either way, I shall recheck the site periodically and link back as soon as there’s a link to provide.

UPDATE:  Well, it’s definitely the 24th for the bloggers over at Indie Author Land — there’ve a paranormal story dated today posted now.  Not to mention the fact that I believe it is now today everywhere except the few places creeping up on tomorrow.  I’ll be contacting them shortly to find out if there has been a reschedule or other problem that I was either not contacted about, or that got eaten by my email’s spam filter.

UPDATE:  Or I could go to the site to contact them — sincerely I did believe something had gone wrong or simply been rescheduled without my knowing — and saw my lovely cover sitting there!  So, the link:  http://www.indieauthorland.com/archives/4247
