A hat tip to the indie author

Learn more about TimGood books are everywhere, and you can find one just about anywhere you look.

You’ll find mentions on blogs, book websites, and social media. Newspapers and magazines. Friends will happily tell you about novels they’ve enjoyed.

And you wouldn’t have to wander around a bookstore for more than a few minutes to score a great find.

Most of these books are written by well-known authors … and promoted by the well-oiled marketing machines at the most well-to-do publishing houses.

But what about the independent author?

You know, the prolific novelist who is quietly building her Amazon publishing empire …

… the sci-fi writer who works tirelessly to promote his own books …

… or the kitchen table warrior who spent a year at home typing up her first manuscript, and is now ready to publish.

This is why I created Tim’s Discovery List—a growing list of self-published books that are worth every minute of our time.

If you’re an indie author yourself, take a minute and let us know about your book. If it’s been reviewed, even better! You can add a link to the review so we can check it out.

Let’s all tip our hats … and support the independent authors in our literary community!


I’m Timothy Pike, copy editor and self-publishing coach, and I’ve been in the book business since 2014. I created the writing and reading community ChapterBuzz to help authors publish their books affordably, and founded Books & Buzz Magazine to showcase prominent authors, reviewers, and books.
