Five Novels that Will Change Your Mind About Indie Books

Indie books sometimes get a bad rap because they are not from the big five publishers. Some indie books are from regional, small presses and others are from self-published authors. Here are five novels that will change your mind about indie books.

  • delivering-virtue
  • missing-mr-wingfield
  • no-big-thing
  • sammie-and-budgie
  • the-el-paso-red-flame-gas-station

The El Paso Red Flame Gas Station - "A well-wrought panorama of small-town dramas and discontents." — Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Missing Mr. Wingfield - "With his impressively honed craft, Clark has produced an equally compelling literary draw." — BlueInk Review (Starred Review)

Sammie & Budgie - "Semegran is a gifted writer, with a wry sense of humor. Poignant, yet never maudlin, this novel will appeal to literary-minded readers and fans of magical realism." — BlueInk Review (Starred Review)

No Big Thing - "A well-written story—one that includes Old South traditions and dirt-road romances, with a healthy dose of beer joint camaraderie thrown in for good measure." — BlueInk Review (Starred Review)

Delivering Virtue - "Threads of satire are skillfully woven into this tapestry of humor and pathos, magical realism, and historical fact." — Foreword Clarion Reviews. Clarion Rating: 5 out of 5. 2015 INDIES Finalist.

If you found my blogs, stories, cartoons, or other articles on my website useful or entertaining, then please visit my Books page and check out my novels as well as my comic strip compilation and my collection of short stories and cartoons. They are all available in eBook, paperback, and hardcover formats. For a pittance, you can purchase something great to read while supporting a writer with a large family and lots of mouths to feed. Thanks for your support, Scott.
