Before we all disappear into the holiday vapor...I'm sending out a call for book recommendations. But hold on, before you inundate me willy-nilly with delightful titles from the Big 6, you should know that I am looking specifically for recommendations of fantastic indie/self-pubbed e-books or e-books published through small presses and/or e-publishers.
You see, Santa (and by Santa I mean myself) is bringing me a Kindle for Christmas and I would like to fill it with wonderful stories. So, dear readers and writers...You have exactly 4 days to sell me your books (or if not your books, someone else's).
Leave your recommendations in the comments section of this post or send me a recommendation on Twitter: @valeriegeary.
A recommendation from you does not necessarily mean I'm going to buy the book, but I'll certainly take a closer look. And though I am willing to give most any book a try (except erotica and vampire fiction), I offer you this reminder:
"..the books I buy contain stories I want to return to again and again.
Stories that keep me up at night. Stories that make it hard for me to
breath. Stories that resonate with me on a deeply personal level. More
specifically: stories about sisters, mothers and daughters, death,
grief, animals, ghosts (real or imagined), wild things and dark places,
savage wildernesses and surviving; stories that might not have a happy
ending, but I won't know until I read to the last page." Sit Down, Shut Up, Write Another Story
Please remember, I'm only opening myself up to recommendations and book promotion for a limited time. 4 days. After Dec 24th, any recommendations that show up on this blog will most likely be labeled spam and ignored. Any recommendations via Twitter after Dec 24th will also be ignored and I reserve the right to block the sender. (Grinchy, aren't I?)
All right, ready? For the next 4 days, indie authors and e-pubbers, you have my full attention.
