Buy Indie Books!


Create your own awesome design at for free!


This Black Friday, as traditional publishers are throwing millions of dollars into advertising, a lot of us indie authors are finding ourselves swept under the proverbial rug.

So to give us all a boost, I’d like to propose that if you’re a self-published, independent author, drop a link (Amazon only, please) and a sentence or two about one of your novels in the comments here, especially if it’s on sale today.

And if you’re a reader and you love to escape into the magical world of books, consider buying indie! Find the links (mine included) in the comments.

And don’t forget to please share this post!

Thank you, from the bottom of my little writer’s heart. ❤

There's a writer in here, clawing her way out.

  1. Thank you so much, Linda. I’m so happy you’re doing this for the indie authors. I copied three links. I have to click comment to see they they work. If they don’t, I’ll post another link. Thank you, Linda.
    Human being has the will power to travel through an exhausting journey, win a tough battle, and heal a deep wound. Strength from hope keeps us going until the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight and striving until the storm is over.

    Hurdle in her poetry collection includes themes of personal experiences in nature, difficult relationship, cancer treatment, marriage, parenthood, remembrance, reflection and inspiration. She reveals the honest self-talk and reflects a heart filled with optimism, faith and trust. She loves music, photography and watercolor painting and includes photos and paintings to complement the poems.

  4. What a great idea Linda! Thanks for doing this. ❤
    In this personal accounting, D.G. Kaye shares the insights and wisdom she has accrued through twenty years of keeping her marriage strong and thriving despite the everyday changes and challenges of aging. Kaye reveals how a little creative planning, acceptance, and unconditional love can create a bond no obstacle will break. Kaye’s stories are informative, inspiring, and a testament to love eclipsing all when two people understand, respect, and honor their vows. She adds that a daily sprinkling of laughter is a staple in nourishing a healthy marriage.

    Twenty years began with a promise. As Kaye recounts what transpired within that time, she shows that true love has no limits, even when one spouse ages ahead of the other.

  19. Thank you Linda for inviting links.. my latest book is a Tales from the Irish Garden…
    The queen of Magia and her court have fled their sun filled Spanish homeland and the palace beneath the magnolia tree.

    Arriving on the backs of geese and swans, they seek sanctuary in the magic garden of The Storyteller who welcomes them to the Emerald Island, a place where rain is almost a daily feature.

    This is a magical fairy story infused with fantasy and romance, as well as opportunities for mischief in the company of goblins, witches and Lerpersians

  21. Thank you, lovely Linda! Your altruism is appreciated!
    I write mostly lesbian erotica and erotic romance. I’m proud of everything I’ve penned, but I consider “The Girl in 411” to be my signature novella. The tale is a sultry love story combining romance, erotica, and plenty of kinky BDSM exploration between two young women who discover a unique and unexpected attraction that will leave readers tingly, heart-warmed, and wickedly aroused. It is available at Amazon and FREE with Kindle Unlimited ~

    Great idea and very nice of you to make a post like this. A few people have read my YA dystopian and liked it. It’s about 15-year old Echo Monat, who only wants to pass her Citizen Fitness Exam and move on with her life, but powers that be in Bakerton have other ideas for her.

    I have a policy to buy an indie book every time I sell one of mine, so I will definitely be checking out any books that are posted here 🙂
