Hurry, authors! Add your self-published book to the Discovery List

Learn more about TimCalling all self-published authors!

I’m creating a spreadsheet, called the Discovery List, to help your book stand out—and bypass all those complex computer algorithms that may have buried your book under hundreds of thousands of others.

Let’s let the readers decide, instead of a giant tech company, shall we? If you add your book, I’ll be able to introduce you and your novel to our 4,600 readers on this blog.

I’ll sort the spreadsheet by genre and our readers can have a field day with it, discovering talented authors—like you—who write the genres they love.

If you’ve self-published a book, use this page to add your book to the spreadsheet!

    By Ann Harrison

    Ann Harrison’s first book of poems delve into her creative journey, given to her by the Holy Spirit. The first section, entitled A Writers Life, covers her journey from writer to creative dreamer, until she blooms into a published author.

Allow the Holy Spirit to help you fill page after page with words, pictures or fill your hands with whatever creative task you strive to undertake, as you read these verses, which come straight from the author’s heart.

Some of these verses touch on the author’s spiritual walk with the Lord and the music God has placed within her soul. Open your heart and let your mind wander as the Holy Spirit speaks to you through each verse within these pages.

  6. Hello Tim,

    Thank you for this amazing opportunity:) I have 2 to put up.

    1) Redeemed From the Ashes by Leah Lindeman
    Historical Fiction

    Evelyn Richardson loses her maimed husband Carl as a result of the Halifax Explosion of 1917. The chances of finding him grow thin as the days pass into cruel winter, and the chaos of a shattered city remains. Evelyn is encouraged by her disheartening mother to leave Carl for dead and to move on with her life.

    At first she refuses such a notion; but when Gerald MacCrae, a doctor at Camp Hill Hospital, enters her heart in friendship, her resolve weakens and finally disintegrates. Gerald harbours a secret from the past and within the present that threatens to rip apart any chance at happiness for Evelyn again. Can she redeem any shred of familiarity from her past or will she forge ahead on the wings of a new life, a new love?

    2) Wisps of Gold by Leah Lindeman
    Historical Fiction

    Rose Wood is fresh out of finishing school where her father, taken by gold fever, deserted her five years ago. She journeys the Cariboo Wagon Road to return to her father’s side at the 108 Mile Hotel. Once she arrives, a rotting stench greets her at the door—her father’s corpse left for her to find.

    Whispers abound he was killed for his treasure. Blackmail and veiled threats from an unknown enemy compel her to search for her father’s hidden gold vein. Eager to squash the rumours once and for all, she sinks deeper into the mystery of her father’s death. The lines between friends and foes become blurred. Will she find the infamous gold vein? Will she uncover where the treasure of her heart truly lies?


  7. Hi Timothy, thanks for this great offer. Most of my books are published by a small independent publisher, but I’ve published a few myself as well. My novel is as follows:
    Breaking Faith, by Stuart Aken. Romantic Thriller.
    As Faith stands shivering before the gates of the notorious Longhouse, she asks herself why she’s seeking employment with a man her father describes as the Devil’s Henchman. Everything in her past warns her this move could be dangerous. But maybe that’s why she’s applied for the job.
    Leigh can’t believe he’s about to interview the village idiot as his Girl Friday. Her ‘homeless’ style of dress hides all physical attributes and she has the reputation of a simpleton. But, on the phone, she was warm and intelligent, and she’ll be cheap. The only cause for concern is how his printing assistant, Merv, might react to a woman working closely with him.
    Faith is naïve and inexperienced; Leigh, worldly and promiscuous; Merv, misogynistic and jealous. Put them together, add the spice of sex, the hypocrisy of religious mania and the violence of frustrated passion, and you have a recipe for murder. Who will kill? Who will die? And why?

  8. Hello Timothy
    I LOVE spreadsheets! What an incredible project. Thanks for the undertaking.

    I have 2 that we self-published this year.

    “Butterflies for Life”, written by Liana Joi Jennings, Illustrated by Rebecca Joi Jennings
    Genre: Children’s, Inspirational

    Follow the story of a butterfly who forgets what it is and becomes what a spider wants it to be.
    Written in prose and illustrated colourfully for children, ‘Butterflies for Life’ contains a powerful message that is universal to all ages. Everyone has family, friends or associates who can be a spider in their life. The power of the message is recognizing their inner-butterfly and shaking off their “spider slippers made of glue” and being who they were meant to be.

    “Fish Can Not Climb Trees”, written by Liana Joi Jennings, Illustrated by Rebecca Joi Jennings
    Genre: Children’s, Inspirational

    This story was inspired by a foster family whose adopted daughter was diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) at the age of six.
    Illustrated colourfully and written for a young child, it is a simple story about the power of finding your own unique way in the world.
    “She’s a happy little fish, but she will never be able to climb a tree.”

    Looking forward to seeing your spreadsheet! Many thanks!
