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.

Discoverability with Kristine Kathryn Rush

stephen_campbellOk, so the interviewer mentions me in the beginning, but I honestly thought it was a great interview for indie authors and recommend listening. This guy Stephen Campbell seems to be knocking them out of the park with his interviews. Last time with Russell Blake, this time with K Rush.

Amazing Times — Russell Blake

Russell Blake always has encouraging things to say about indie publishing. Encouraging like a bitter pill — the worse it tastes, the stronger the cure. This latest post of his is a bit more hopeful than usual — a grain of sugar to help the medicine go down.


Amazing Times.
