I Bought 50 Books by Indie Authors :-)

I went on an indie book shopping spree to show my support for indie authors. After the contempt Kobo showed indies, I wanted to give a token of my solidarity. Because I respect indie authors.

I chose some books because I like the genres, others because I wanted to try something different, some because they were recommended to me or because they took my fancy at the moment. Some titles are authored by people who follow me on Twitter, who belong to my writing groups, who supported my stand against Kobo’s anti-indie discrimination, or who have contributed stories to the Ten Tales anthologies. Others were random picks.


The list contains more than fifty titles, because some of them were free. Normally, I don’t care whether a book is indie or trad pubbed, I just want a good read. But this particular shopping spree was for indie books only. I believe all of these to be indie books, but sometimes this is difficult to ascertain. Where possible, I bought the books from Smashwords (a site genuinely supportive of indies). I also bought some from Amazon.co.uk and a few paperbacks. I didn’t buy any from Kobo .


I look forward to many hours of reading pleasure. :-)
