Tim’s Discovery List

Help us discover great self-published books!

Every day I’m discovering novels that are truly great.

But these aren’t mainstream hits—these are self-published books that, to everyone’s detriment, got buried in the huge “Amazon book pile.”

These are thrilling, funny, or just plain delightful stories that, thanks to big tech’s complex search algorithms (or the author’s lack of a promotion budget), ended up as #197,268 on the chart, dashing any hope of anyone discovering them in the next hundred years.

Let’s let the readers decide, instead of a giant tech company, shall we?

Once we have 100 books on the list and 5,000 blog followers (currently 4,800), I will make the Discovery List available to download for all to see.

To build this list, I’d like to involve everyone: authors, book reviewers, and readers.

Want to add a book to add to the list? Please use these options:

Submit a self-published book
If you’re an author who has self published a book, please add it to the list

Submit a book review
Maybe you happened across a review, or maybe you wrote it yourself. Either way, share a book review

Did you discover a self-published book?
If you’ve recently discovered a great self-published book, add a “Love Note” here! If the book is already on our list, even better: it’ll help make that book even more visible.
