Our authors work in many genres.

What's your favorite?

Whether you prefer fiction or nonfiction, romance or suspense… one of our writers is bound to have something to pique your interest. Be sure to visit their individual profiles to see what they’ve published and perhaps what they’re working on. There are links to their websites and their social media links. 

What is an independent reader?

What is an independent reader? You like what you like… and are open-minded, always excited to discover a new genre or author who speaks to you. And if you want to become a cheerleader for that book? So much the better. Members of the indie author community don’t have the marketing budget of the big publishers, so, as individuals and as a group, we thrive on word of mouth.

Your likes and shares are encouraging. Your interest is a gift. Your reviews and recommendations are priceless.

Reader voices matter.
