Lauryn April (laurynapril) | 44 comments For the New Year, I'm challenging readers to set a reading goal for Indie Books. I plan to read at least 10 Indie Books this year and I need some suggestions!

I'm hoping there are some readers out there looking to participate and make a pledge.

And, I'm hoping there are some Indie Authors who would be interested in adding their book to our list of books to review.

A.J. Ullman | 10 comments Thank you!

I just published Drifting, Falling — Diary of a Call Girl Suicide.

It’s getting way over 4 stars rating in Goodreads.

I’d highly recommend it to you! ;-)

And I love your goal
I will try to implement it!

Jas Dosanjh (jasdosanjh) | 1 comments Hi Lauryn, that's a great idea. I'm a (very new) indie author and I would love to support other indies - it's a tough world out there. My book is called Life Out Of Reach, Spare Burden. It's available on all major retailers including Amazon, ibooks, Kindle and Kobo and Nook. I have attached a link for a preview of the first three chapters. I would be absolutely delighted to be included on your list.
Kind regards

P. Lundburg | 2 comments Hi, Lauryn:

I'm an indie author who would be happy to participate. I can offer any of my books free in exchange for honest read/reviews. I have 2 crime/mystery series going, the first books of which are:

Skipper's Oath (The Frank Mattituck #1) by P. Wesley Lundburg and The Stateroom Tryst (Clayton Chronicles Book 1) by P. Wesley Lundburg

All are available in all ebook formats. If you'd like to include them, let me know any next steps I need to take.

Best Regards... and Happy New Year!

Ian Miller | 23 comments Hi Lauryn,

I read and reviewed something approaching 50 indie ebooks last year, and I would love to have some of mine reviewed. Anyone interested?

message 6: by Rachael (new)

Rachael Arsenault | 11 comments This is an awesome idea! I definitely need to work on reading more indie books, and I would love to have more people read my indie books.

Right now I'm working on a series, which is available through Amazon. The first two books are out (Stranger & Stranger and A Blessing & A Curse) and I just finished the second draft of the third book a couple weeks ago.

HI Ian,
I see that you've written quite a few books. Congratulations! I'd like to read one of them. Please let me know if you have a preference, or I'll choose one myself and get it on Kindle. My email is

Ian Miller | 23 comments Hi Dora,

H. Glogau-Morgan (ddraigswife) | 5 comments I have two books of a four-book series published now. The first is "Midnight to Morning" and the second is "Sunrise to Shadows" and was just released a month ago. When it first came out, "Midnight to Morning" did very well. I just ended up getting incredibly ill and could not give it the attention it deserved after the first six months. Trying to do that now, as book 2 is out and 3 is almost a quarter way written. I can offer free e-copies for review and would LOVE to read and review other indie books. I just finished editing the newest novella for a friend of mine who published the Kinnear Chronicles, so helping indie writers is a passion of mine.

Alicia Ehrhardt (aliciabutcherehrhardt) Are you limiting it to very recent books for a reason, Lauryn? Some of us (okay, I don't know that many indies who do) write the 'big book' mainstream novels; they take a long time to produce, and may still be something you would want to read. Think Jane Eyre or The Thorn Birds.

message 12: by Ian (new)

Ian Miller | 23 comments My guess is Lauryn did it just to ensure that she is not flooded with books. The recent ones at least shows that the author is still active.

message 13: by Lauryn (new)

Lauryn April (laurynapril) | 44 comments Yes, I did limit it to books published in 2017 or 2018 so the list would stay a manageable size.

message 14: by Lauryn (new)

Lauryn April (laurynapril) | 44 comments The list is posted. I've added all the books from this forum that fit the requirements (independently published in 2017 or 2018). If I missed you, or if you'd still like to add a book to the list please use the form on my blog as I do not plan to be able to check this thread again for submissions.

If you're on the list please share it on your social media sites!

Thank you to everyone participating in the #IndieBookGoal2018

Sapna Dhyani (sapnadhyani) | 1 comments A Trunk Full of Sunshine by Sapna Dhyani Devrani Dear friends,
I am Sapna. I belong to Dehradun, but now live in a different city every two years, being an army wife. My first book has recently been published. It would be great if you read and review it. The links to my blog and the book are given below: (my blog)

Denise Baer Hello Lauryn,

I'm a multi-genre Indie author. My books don't fit your publishing requirements, but I thought I'd add them here in case you're in the mood for one of them. If you get around to it, or anyone else, I have a few edited published books that could always use more reviews. Both contain adult content.

Mental institution. Loneliness Internet chat room. Stalker. Chicago. Seattle. Murderer.

A dark, psychological suspense thriller - Net Switch by Denise Baer : Net Switch

Amnesia. Sarcasm. Alcohol. Sex. Romance. Adventure. Second Chances.

A romantic comedy adventure - Fogged Up Fairy Tale by Denise Baer : Fogged Up Fairy Tale

Thanks for your time.

Michel Poulin | 17 comments I would like to submit some of my books that are in the erotica/urban fantasy for adults genre for your list, Lauryn, but I proofed them myself, not via a professional editor. My books are available for free on Goodreads and have earned good ratings, but how rigid is your rule about needing professional editing? I am a retired man with limited means and can't afford professional editors or proofreaders.

message 18: by Helen (new)

Helen Blacksmith | 2 comments This is a great idea. I currently have two new interracial lesbian romance books available. You can buy them at the links below or I am giving away free copies for those interested in possibly posting a review when they are done. Contact me at with the book(s) you are interested in.

Currently I only have ebooks available for free but you can find paperback version at the links below.

Battle Scars is gritty, explicit, but hopeful. Find it here:



The Summers We Lost is a simple yet complicated romance. Find it here:


Thank you to anyone that may be interested!

Ms Johnson | 5 comments Hi,

This is a great challenge! Maybe I can redeem myself since I didn't sign my daughter up for the summer reading challenge lol.

I have a new children's picture book entitled 'This is my Bucket'. It is about the power of imagination. I would love to get you a review copy. I am on my way to your blog now.
