Indie Author Pandora Spocks, with her book Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over.

July 1, 2015 is Indie Pride Day.    Social media is going to be flooded with photos of proud independent authors holding their books.

If you’ve never ventured out of the literary world of big name publishers, take the opportunity to explore all the great books that are available from self-published authors.

Remember when iTunes first came out and suddenly you found bands you loved and had never heard of before.  Huge traditional publishers have long determined the literature that is available to the public.  With the advent of self-publishing like Kindle Direct Press, there’s a never-ending selection of possibilities.   Self-published ebooks are infinitely more affordable than establishment books.  Hell, with Kindle Unlimited you can read books for free.

And, if you’re thinking about investigating the books offered by Indie Authors, might I suggest Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over by Pandora Spocks.  It’s a contemporary spicy romantic novel and it’s available on Amazon for a mere $2.99, FREE with Kindle Unlimited.
