Ok. I'm changing up my writing blog little and I'm going to start doing some Kindle reviews of Indie books self-published on Kindle. I'm considering more and more self publishing- not everything- just a few things like my flash fiction (which could be a nice collection), and Ambriel. Plus the story games like these

So the plan is spend $5.00 a month on $.99 indie books from Amazon, review them, maybe even post reviews on Amazon, and see if I take the pulse of e-books and self publishers. I'm particularly interested in those working in genre, YA, and MG.

Made good!

I bought 5 $.99 books on Amazon and I bought them cold! Yikes!

The break down:

Scourge: A Grim Doyle Adventure; self described as steampunk for kids. It has a number of excellent reviews and I've had my eye on it for awhile. Also I'm following a thread on AW about how no one buys middle grade and YA on Kindle.

Milrose Munce and the Den of Professional Help; this seeems to be MG pubbed overseas and without an American publisher so they went DIY. I hope this sets a precidence for more foreign books to do this if foreign rights fall through.

Milrose Munce and the Plague of Toxic Fungus; You had me at fungus. This is the sequel obviously.

Night and Chaos: The Deava Chronicles; This one being the rather biased choice! Thought I'd go with an author I KNOW to be good.

Tinna's Promise; I liked the cover art. This should totally prove cover art is still KING! Make a good one! Even for an e-book!! Fork over for that nice stock photo and the extended rights :)

I also got samples of two more.

I'll let you know how this goes....
