My Next Read
I love indie authors not only because I am one, but because I believe that the next Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, or Michael Connelly is currently slaving over a laptop trying to make a mark on their own. To be indie means supporting indie and I’m ready to put my wallet where my mouth is – again.
I am looking for my next read. Here’s a chance for an indie author to make one more sale and potentially garner a glowing review. Please leave a blurb about your book in the comments for this post. The one (or two) that I find most interesting I will buy and make my next read. Good luck authors.
Thanks to all who participated. It’s my opinion that an author who can craft a concise and compelling blurb can also write concise and compelling narrative. All the entries were strong which made the choice that much harder, but two stuck out for me.
Congratulations to Debra Brenegan, author of Shame the Devil, and Rob Walker, author of Titanic 2012. I downloaded your books last night. I plan to read Shame the Devil first.
Debra, non-fiction/biographical fiction is not a genre I normally read. However, your synopsis was so compelling, I had to know more. The quality of writing in the blurb assured me that you would hold my interest through the end of your book despite the fact that it isn’t one of my usual genres. Fantastic work.
Rob, the concept of a monster aboard the Titanic in 1914, and still in 2012 awaiting salvage crew was too much to resist. Two stories in one and such a novel concept I’m kicking myself for not thinking of it.
To those not selected, you caught my attention and I may still pay a visit to the world you created for my next set of reads.
