Awesome Indies Everywhere

Yeah, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything about the Awesome Indies or included new ones into their mighty ranks. Mainly because of that stupid rule I created when I first started the project. Basically, I said I wouldn’t add anyone who “didn’t need the help” or something like that. Total hogwash. Let’s face it: everyone needs help. Publishing is tough. From now on, even indie powerhouses get a seat at the table.

Another change is I’m no longer limiting the list to people who write so-called “full length novels.” Novellas are allowed. And I only post the actual books that I’ve read by the author, not something else they’d rather see placed here.

With the administrivia out of the way, here are the new Awesome Indies:

All of these books had great stories, great editing, awesome presentation, and made me want to read more of their stuff. And they’re all independently published.

Authors playing video games

This weekend, me and three other authors played Left 4 Dead 2.  What a blast. It’s hard to tell who’s talking unless you know our voices, but I’m the most clueless sounding. I repeatedly say stuff like “I got one of those things on me!”  The other guys all seem to know what the monsters are.

Authors / Zombie Bait:

Nick Cole — Apocalypse Weird: The Red King

Chris Pourteau — Apocalypse Weird: The Serenity Strain

TJ Redig — The Philosopher’s Load

John L. Monk — Kick

Apocalypse Weird: The Red King (Amazing Cover)

Ok, you’re probably assuming I’m judging this book by its amazing cover (which I totally am). But if you do, you’re basically judging me. And because I noticed you judging me, I’ve basically judged you back. Now we’re all wrapped up in an endless cycle of judging and judging-back and it’s pretty tangled now and freaky like a game of strip Twister and…

So anyway… I picked up The Red King free today. Looks like a good book, and did I mention how cool the cover is?
