I Heart Indie

Hello lovely people!

If you're following me on Twitter, you'll know that I am a proud supporter of #IndieBooksBeSeen. It's not just a hashtag, it's a movement. By using the hashtag, your book will be seen all throughout the Twitterverse. You might even get reviewers to read your book. It is a totally great help to the indie book community.

Ever since I joined Book Tweeting Service, a site that helps authors get free reviews from various reviewers, I became more open to indie books and authors. I found myself falling in love with indie books. In my opinion, indie books or self-published books needs more exposure. They deserve a chance to be read by everyone because I know that these authors worked hard for their books.

Below are the indie books I have read and loved, so far:

Dr. Time offers him a choice to go back into Time, to any point in his lifespan that he can vividly recall. The catch: he can only bring his memories, and can only live the future one day at a time.

Patricia’s dreams of a happily ever after turn into one nightmare after another as she battles threats that go beyond her imagination.

Is her new love behind the torment? After all, his former girlfriend ended up in an asylum. Or could Paul’s wife be more than a bored, spoiled, rich girl?


Meanwhile, the FBI is trying to track down a thief who magically appears and disappears, taking priceless gems and artwork with her.

Title: Odium
Author: Frank McManus
Publication: September 8th 2013 (Self-published)
Genres: Adventure
Review || Goodreads || Amazon

Synopsis: 
Lost in time and dimension, is an island known as Odium. The name Odium came from a great giant who lived when the world was new. The island formed when Odium stepped from the sea. Mud from the bottom of the sea came up under his foot, and remained upon the surface of the water. As he stepped away, a shell cut his foot leaving his blood mixing with the seawater, creating the essence of life, and causing the evolution of the many strange wonders on and around Odium. An Ocean of Dreams surrounds Odium, keeping it cloaked from the ignorant and narrow-minded; an ocean that clouds perception and bends reality causing one to see what they want to see, but not always what is there. Many ships have gone into this ocean never to be seen or heard from again. It is said that this land called Odium holds the keys to our existence, our past and our future. To find the island and rediscover its secrets will bring about a time of great prosperity, wonderment and peace upon the land. However, through the millennia all of the charts and records to Odium have been lost. All that remains are the stories that elders tell to their young at bedtime. Hence, Odium was to remain forever a myth, a story told to children, or so we were led to believe... This is the tale of two extraordinary best friends, who discover a great secret and become adventures. Friends who never gave up, who dared to challenge reality and their own awareness in order to rediscover and explore Odium. For the good of the many, on the hopes of a few, they embarked on a journey of a lifetime.

Title: First World Problems
Author: 
Publication: September 1st 2014 (Self-published)
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Review || Goodreads || Amazon

Synopsis: 
Sofia's had a really rough year - busted for cheating at prep school, dumped - dumped! - for the first time ever, and her new non-profit working stepmother is turning out to be an uppity bitch.

She deserves to treat herself. But when she throws herself a birthday party with 20 of her closest friends in Paris and (accidentally!) maxes out her dad's credit card in the process, he’s had enough of her attitude. As punishment, he switches her planned gap year touring Europe to one doing community service work with the evil stepmother’s relief organization in Guyana. 


The rural village of Dabu needs help in every area from education to getting safe drinking water. But Sofia’s more concerned about her roommate Callum, the gardening expert, who calls Sofia "Princess" and scoffs at her distaste for sweaty, muddy, iguana-eating, outhouse-using life in Guyana. 


Eventually, life on the equator, her work in the village, and especially Callum - with his brooding eyes and bewitching New Zealand accent - start to grow on Sofia. Life is rough in Guyana, but it’s roughest on the girls, whose families are too poor to send only the most promising boys in school. They’re trapped in a cycle that will keep them from ever making a better life for themselves, or for the village. Worse, Callum doesn’t seem to think any of the changes Sofia envisions are actually necessary. 


Determined to change the girls’ futures, she comes up with a strategy to help them and, ultimately, the village. But what starts out as a plan to convince Callum and her father that she’s fallen in love with Guyana, turns into the realization that maybe she’s falling for Callum, too. And that by changing these girls’ lives, she might also be changing her own.

More books will be added soon!

  2. Thank you for your efforts for Indie authors! We struggle to write a fantastic book, spend more than we truly have for multiple levels of editing, and then struggle as new authors with the marketing piece. The support is much appreciated.
