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....

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.

FOOD you idiots! Of course if the island didn't have potable water I'd be screwed. I suppose the best anwer to this would be some sort of rainwater collection gadget. OR better yet Bear Grylls! Then he could do all the survival shit FOR you LOL! Who is the other guy? The Brit who got naked all the time? Remember him? I liked him better...

Anyway- the real reason I'm here is MY KINDLE SHIPPED! Oh. Em. Gee! Apparently I can go start buying stuff now! I have been wishlisting Kindle books for a week now! Yes I'm going to load it up with freebie public domain litererature! Jane Austen here I come!!!! And ALL 15 WIZARD OF OZ BOOKS! Holy shit! But there are other things I will pay for.

But NOT $12.99 and up books! WTF is that? I can get the paper back cheaper! Greedy ass publishers! It's a fucking virtual copy! It doesn't even like really exist! I mean really... your kidding. I may also break down and start reading Indie stuff. I like the price point and I shouldn't be such an aweful lit snob. I may be in the small press boat myself one day. God willing I get that far in life!
