This year I’ve decided that in addition to my usual end-of-year/new-year’s posts of my Top Books Read and Top Anticipated Reads, that I’d like to do a post that highlights some of my favorite self-published/indie author books that I’ve read this year.

I completed a task most people don’t even dare to attempt.
But now what? Well personally I’d love to land an agent and score a sweet book deal. There’s something annoyingly validating about having a stranger choose to pluck your book from anonymity and make it their job to have it shine. But it’s what I want and there seem to be rules and so off I go. Step one: Query Letter. Gross. Continue reading
