Dear Writer-Friends,

I've been self-publishing since 2011, and I've shared the knowledge I've gained in two books: the Indie Author Survival Guide, Second Edition, and For Love or Money. I'm not an indie rockstar or a breakout success: I'm one of thousands of solidly midlist indie authors making a living with their works. These books are my way of helping my fellow authors discover the freedom of indie publishing. Write on, writer-friends!

Dark Omen Reviews Angelfall by Susan Ee

Dark Omen has his review of Angelfall up, continuing his month of reading and reviewing Indie YA Books. Angelfall has been on my list to read since it came out last summer, one of the first flush of YA indie books to run up the charts. When Susan Ee visited my group blog Scribbler's Cove to talk about her experience, it was one of those light-bulb moments for me. You mean a YA writer - a serious one - could be successful as an indie?

I haven't read Angelfall yet, but that will be remedied soon. After all, it has a "cleverly crafted dystopian world" - how can I resist?


  1. It is an excellent book. I went out and bought it after I read Susan's post on Scribble Cove and finished it in one day. Her story also gives me some hope toward the possibility of my own self publishing career.

    The biggest selling points for me are having all my rights in tact, and being able to bounce back quickly. So book 1 doesn't sell, it's okay. I have a ton of ideas to put out, and by self publishing, no editor will tell me I can't step out of my niche, or that my last book didn't sell well enough for them to take another risk. It's all my risk and I get to reap all the possible rewards.

  2. This sounds wonderful. Will have to check it out.

    I've seen so much in regards to this novel. Lots of good being said about it. I think it's time I move this novel up my TBR list.

  3. Just visited Adam's blog. Sounds like a wonderful book. :)

  4. I'm drawn to the cover, and I'm a push over for a "cleverly crafted" world of anykind.

  5. how cute is his author blog!!!!
    what a proud mama you must be... for many reasons!

  6. I have this book on my TBR list because it has so many good reviews but I still haven't bumped it up. I hate waiting on series to come out with the next book.
