So lately I've been trying to buy one indie novel a day, and I've been going through B&N because (a) I have a Nook that I still take with me to the beach/pool/etc. for 3G impulse reading goodness and (b) I'm trying to encourage authors who haven't gone Amazon exclusive. I've been recording my progress here (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=171202 ) but thought it would be fun to cross post here, too.
03-08-2012, here's a post-apocalypse novel that doesn't have zombies for the zombie-haters! :D
Arena One, by Morgan Rice. Which is described as basically like The Hunger Games except not like The Hunger Games at all! Since the first review lays out all the copious ways the book is different (which I appreciate, thank you, Reviewer!), it sounds like it has the desperate "feel" of THG but in a completely different world-building scenario. I can dig that. :)
(This book is over my $2.99 limit, but I've gotten several 99 cent ones in this thread, and I think it evens out.)
Also: This is SO MUCH FUN. I now have, like, eight Firefox tabs open to PubIt books I want to buy. It's like getting a present every day before Christmas.
03-09-2012's is what looks like a transhumanism, or possibly cyber-punk?, novel about Eve and the Garden of Eden. Why not? :D "Eden" by Keary Taylor. Apparently it's not just an indie book, it's going to be an indie movie. :eek: And it has a gorgeous cover. Yowzas.
Today's book is...free, which I didn't even notice until I went to buy it. (I'd started with the third in the series, realized my mistake before I bought that one, clicked through for the first one, decided to buy, and then saw it was a freebie. LOL.)
