The problem is that it's hard to pin down exactly what I like. Lately I've been reading fantasy, but not horror/zombies/scifi. The last two things I read and enjoyed were The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and Aurora Abroad by indie author Karen Kiefer. I can read something challenging or light as long as it has an original story. I'd really like to read another indie author. Any suggestions?
You sound like my perfect reader, considering I WROTE "Strange Roads" because I like to read fantasy and am tired of the same-old same-old. (Yes, it has a vampire in it; no, it's not a "vampire book.") Fantasy, action, a smattering of history, and grown-up characters who don't spend ALL their time whining.
Yeah, I figured I'd probably be inundated, too. I've looked through some of the self promotion threads, but I see a lot of straight romance, thrillers, mystery etc, and I really want something unusual.
Here's something different. Try out mine, the first in the series, The Boy who Lit up the Sky. SciFi (light not too techie), Fantasy (definitely), Romance (gets hot and heavy in books 2 - 3), Politics (yep), Spiritualism, all of the above.
My book is about growing up with spirits and how you can connect as well to your guides and animal totems. This is a heartwarming book about compassion, family (and our pets), and love. This book is recommended for anyone who believes in Mediumship, enjoys short stories, inspirational stories, and discovering the wisdom of the other side. Includes Channeled info on healing.
I love the idea of not recommending your own book, but somehow I doubt it will work I would recommend Aurora Abroad for someone who likes fantasy/fairytales. It's a fun, light read, and no I don't know the author.
Some definite contenders here. I downloaded Strange Roads because I'm curious enough to keep reading. I hope I can be completely honest and say there were typos in the excerpt that bugged me a little. So far the story has been compelling enough to overlook them, though, and I'm looking forward to reading more. I'll check out some of the others tonight.
