I’m very new to the whole blogging and Twitter world so I was pretty unaware of the SPFBO, started by Mark Lawrence several years ago, until this year. An awesome idea, it has shined a light on the quality of self-published books that are out in the world.
When it comes to fantasy I can be a bit of a book snob, which I’ve now come to realise is 100% to my detriment. Even just stalking writers and bloggers on Twitter has given me more of an insight into how things work in the publishing world and how hard it is to get published. So many people are trying to get their book out there, self-publishing is a great option and I have to stop my automatic judgement when I hear those words. I actually have quite a few self-published books on my kindle and with Jason over at Off the TBR organising the Self-Published Fantasy Month for September (#SelfPubFantasyMonth), I’ve decided it’s time to finally get to a few of them. Make sure you check out Jason’s blog for all the info.
I have a few self-published books on my kindle that I would like to get to, I was hoping to make a start on one by now but life has been busy and reading has not been a priority. Hopefully soon.
Anyway without further waffling here is the list of books I’ll be choosing from.
So that is six. I’m hoping to get through at least three or four. I read slower when I use my kindle versus when I’m holding a paperback. I have no idea why. On a side note can we all just pause to appreciate the absolute badassery that is the cover of Blades Of Magic by Terah Edun. I freaking love it so much that it will be one I definitely read… Yes I am a cover whore.
Are you joining in? What are you planning on reading?
A big thanks to Jason for organising and coming up with the banner.
