I support Indie Authors. All it takes is a dollar or three dollars or something to help them out. The more books they sell, the more likely they are to write more books. The more likely that one of those books will be my favorite book.
So far I don’t have any Indie favorites, the ones I’ve picked up have been average at best, but I still buy them, why? Because I support Indie Authors.
I don’t need to win books via giveaways, get arcs from netgalley, or get galleys from the authors themselves. I don’t need to review every book I read.
I don’t have to read every book I buy.
But if I don’t buy those books, then those authors won’t write them, and the more books I don’t buy, the more authors won’t write books to begin with.
And I’m not about to crush anyone else’s dream because they’re Indie.
Not everyone can win the book lottery, and even then, that book lottery comes with a lot of pressure and manipulation. I don’t think everyone could live with that.
And so I buy Indie books by Indie Authors because I want them to succeed, I want them to write more books, I want them to improve.
One day I’ll find a story out there that’s from an Indie Author that’s so absolutely amazing it’s hard to believe it’s an Indie Book.
When I find it, I’ll let you know.
Until then, I’ll keep perusing the shelves on Kindle to see what I come up with.
What about you? Do you read every book you buy? Do you care who publishes what? Do you avoid Indie Authors? Do you support Indie Authors?
