I want to mention a few things I've been reading and enjoying lately by other independent authors. I'm thoroughly enjoying A Fistful of Divas, a western-mystery serial by Camille LaGuire, featuring her young gunslinger couple Mick and Casey McKee. Give it a try; if you like it, there are also a couple of other short stories, a novella, and a full-length novel about Mick and Casey available. Ms. LaGuire has also written a number of other mystery and adventure novels and stories.
I've also been going through Lindsay Buroker's steampunk/fantasy Emperor's Edge novels (and related novellas and short stories) like chocolate. Adventure, action, suspense, engaging characters, magic, amazing technology, and a touch of romance make this series addicting. Ms. Buroker also has a steampunk series set in the Yukon Gold Rush.
Finally, I just started reading Child of the Ghosts by Jonathan Moeller, and am finding it hard to put down. I'm only a quarter of the way through the first book in a six-book series, but so far the story is compelling and, like the other stories I've mention here, keeping me up waaaay too late at night. Mr. Moeller also has a number of other fantasy and science fiction series available.
If you're looking for something new and different to read, something outside of the ordinary, consider giving one of these independent authors a try.
