Saisaa Where can I find these books in internet?


message 2: by Purr More (new)

Purr More Check for them on amazon or smashwords. Some may only be ebooks but some are also available in paperback.


message 3: by Sandy (new)

Sandy Wolters How do you add a book to this list?


message 4: by Purr More (new)

Purr More Just above the first book on the list you will see two tabs: "all votes" and "add books to this list"

Most of the books you can find on amazon and BnN as ebooks and some are in print on amazon and author websites.

my books are all on there and my website as well amiblackwelder.blogspot.com


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

Just out in October, not urban, but a great fantasy romance - The Ballad of Young Tam Lin, but Patricia Leslie. Preview on Kindle, ("look inside"), the first 3 chapters free. If it doesn't hook you, you're not out anything. Hardcopy at https://www.createspace.com/3661637


message 7: by Yanet (last edited Apr 07, 2012 08:27PM) (new)

Yanet im pretty sure First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones, Some Girls Bite & Drink Deep by Chloe Neill, Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong are not indie books


message 8: by Purr More (last edited Apr 07, 2012 10:46PM) (new)

Purr More Yanet, thanks for the heads up. I removed the miscategorized books. Sometimes I don't think people actually read the list description.

As a general reminder to anyone wanting to add books, this list is for indie (self-published) books only! If you aren't sure whether a book is indie or not, just ask.


message 9: by Yanet (new)

Yanet no problem! :) I only mentions the ones i know of, so there might be more.


message 10: by Helen (last edited Oct 03, 2012 08:27AM) (new)

Helen Why is Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire here? It's not paranormal as far as I know.

Same with Divergent by Veronica Roth. It's dystopia. And I don't think it's indie.


message 11: by Purr More (new)

Purr More Hi Helen, thanks for the heads up. I appreciate your help keeping the list on topic. I took a look at those books.

It appears Beautiful Disaster was originally self-published and was then picked up later by Simon & Schuster. That would be okay since it was self-published originally; however, it isn't paranormal so I'll remove that one from the list.

Divergent appears to be traditionally published by an imprint of Harper Collins so I will remove that one as well.


message 12: by Purr More (new)

Purr More Anyone happen to know if The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines has any paranormal/fantasy aspect? I'm not seeing that it does.


message 13: by Purr More (new)

Purr More The following books were removed from this list because they are not paranormal:

The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines
Down To You by M. Leighton
The Wild Ones by M. Leighton

If you see any books that are either not paranormal or not indie, please let me know so we can keep the list on topic.


message 14: by JJ (new)

JJ Holding Group for readers, Reviewers and writers there will be free RaR books (Read and Review) that authors will give free to reviewrs in exchange for a review

http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/9...


message 15: by Nazish (new)

Nazish Ahmed (Nazish Reads) Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout isn't Indie, it's published by Entangled Teen.

It's so annoying that many people don't read the description and just put any books on lists.


message 16: by Amanda (new)

Amanda DeWees I hope it's okay for me to add my first young-adult paranormal romance (self-published), "The Shadow and the Rose." It's loosely based on the Tam Lin story--and I see there's at least one other Tam Lin novel on the list! :)


message 17: by Purr More (last edited Sep 12, 2013 02:50AM) (new)

message 19: by antigine (new)

antigine Hi I really don't know if any of you will know about this, but I'm trying to remember the title of a book that was about an injured prima donna that goes from New York to some little town in the south, where her father was from, to stay with her aunt or grandmother and she starts having visions of civil war scenes and there is a group in teenagers practising dark magic and a foreigner staying at her aunt house who wants to stop them and thinks she is one of them. In the meanwile she is discobering her own powers. If any of you know the book please let me know.


message 20: by Purr More (new)

I just stumbled across a group titled "What's the Name of That Book?" and it made me think of your question. Maybe they can help.

message 23: by Tokies (new)

Tokies good job ive been looking for indie. UF and paranormal


message 24: by BookLovingLady (last edited Nov 15, 2016 05:26AM) (new)

BookLovingLady Why are the books from the Neighbor from Hell series (Playing for Keeps (376), Perfection (#388), Checkmate (#598), Truce (#599)) on this list? There is absolutely nothing paranormal in any of them....


message 25: by Diana (new)

Diana I removed books that aren't indie.


message 26: by Jacob (new)

Jacob Wilder Cannot wait for Jennifer McBay Barry's newest book Shriek! It's about a teenage girl who finds out that she is an Irish banshee of legend. Compound this with the fact that someone from one of the ancient Irish families is out to get her and that her bad boy crush is in mortal danger and you have a recipe for a thrilling romance that unfolds in 277 kindle pages. It is so intriguing because Jennifer has very close ties to Ireland and visits frequently and you can see that passion in her writing! Be sure to check it out! The book releases December 19th, 2018 Shriek. Find the book on Amazon here: (https://amzn.to/2QvJJGo).
