I'm probably a bit late with this but I've just noticed that Wordsmith... The Cornerstone Book 2: A Fast Paced Fantasy Sequel was released last month.

Since the ban on Indie authors self-promoting on here, I've sort of lost track of all of my favourite Indies. This is probably going to spark outrage from several cretins who think that promoting authors you like must mean that you are them in disguise, but I was thinking that we could possibly use this thread to let each other know about new releases from our favourite Indie authors. What do you reckon?

@Knitghtmare: Can you have too much of a good thing? Probably, but I don't think we have reached "full" yet :)

There is also the rather nice Just Started / Just finished thread which seems to work for me at least steering me towards or away from books I may like/dislike :

Knightmare says:
Yeah I do use that thread and have discovered loads of great books just because people have mentioned them on there.

Sibel Hodge is one of my favourite authors and she's not long released a YA story that I thought was excellent The See-Through Leopard
Also Michael Cargill's just released Saying Goodbye to Warsaw

I enjoyed Wordsmith - I pre-ordered it and read it straight away :)

Thanks so much for this Knightmare, loved the first one and didn't know it had come out.

good idea for a thread. Must admit though I never really think in terms of 'favourite indie author' I just think 'favourite authors'. Doesn't really matter to me if they are indie or trad published, if the books are good, I'll read them.
Wordsmith is good by the way, I read it when it came out-- maybe not as good as 'The Cornerstone' but well up there.
One of my favourite authors as the moment, who happens to be an indie is William H.S. McIntyre. He writes legal thrillers set in Scotland and has just released the 5th book in the series Crime Fiction (Best Defence No. 5)

@SM: Just noticed that mr Mc has "updated" the covers on his Robbie books. I've loved the books but have to say that these new covers are a totally turn-off.

Steven says:
oh dear. :( I can't see the covers so don't know what you mean but it's a shame if they are.

Carl Ashmore says:
Yeah, Knightmare, I agree. I think Nick's 'Wordsmith' is a great follow up to 'Max Bloom in... The Cornerstone: A Fast Paced Fantasy Adventure. But there are quite a few indie books (and non-indies) I've enjoyed lately. I think it's been a good year for the yarn.

Knightmare says:
I'm re-reading Max Bloom in... The Cornerstone: A Fast Paced Fantasy Adventure before I start on the second book as I've read so many books since that one that I really couldn't remember what happened in it.

Not out yet, but I believe Mel Comley has nearly finished another book in her popular 'Justice' series so I'm looking out for that one. :)

Talking of my favourite authors Carl, when is the next Time Hunters book coming out?

I really like this author. Although this story is a bit different to his last one which was a humorous farce.

The Sugar Men - A Story of Holocaust Echoes by Ray Kingfisher

The Sugar Men - A Story of Holocaust Echoes.
Susannah Morgan has been settled in sleepy North Carolina for almost sixty-five years, but is still haunted by memories of her escape from the holocaust as a child.
For most of her life the flashbacks have been a lonely obsession - one she has managed to hide from her children.
But as her life draws to a close her memories start asking questions, and the only way she can find answers is to return to the scene of the unspeakable crime.
Against the wishes of her children she flies back to Germany to find her truth. What she discovers there explains so much about who she is, who her children are, and how the wretched legacy of the holocaust is wide and deep and persistent.
The Sugar Men is the novel based on the short story: The Lucky One.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Sugar Men, it was a really interesting way to write about a horrid subject.

And another of may favourite authors has just released a book. The Dark Stone by Mark R Faulkner (author of Flux)

He thought it was all God's plan... He was wrong.
In a city decimated by plague, a young boy is forced to fend for himself. After a long, hard winter he's rescued by a band of monks, leaving his only friend alone in the ruins.
For a while life is good and his hardships a fading memory until, some two years later his new home is raided and the inhabitants slaughtered. During the attack he takes refuge in the catacombs which run deep beneath the monastery, where he discovers a mysterious black stone.
The stone bestows him with powers beyond his wildest dreams, but there's a high price to pay for power and his discovery harbours a dark side... A very dark side.

I've just started the brand new Amber Fox mystery Chocolate, Lies, and Murder (Amber Fox Mysteries book #4) (The Amber Fox Murder Mystery Series) by Sibel Hodge
I love Sibel Hodge's works.

Another of my favourite authors has just released their new book today. It's just a novella though
Last Christmas by Talli Roland.

For Lucy, the best Christmas present is forgetting the past.
Eager to banish the ghost of Christmas past - when her boyfriend dumped her on the streets of Paris - Lucy is determined to make this the best Christmas ever. She rallies friends and family for an epic celebration that just happens to fall on the same day as her ex's festive wedding. Furious at how she's been treated, Lucy can't help relishing the party v wedding smackdown.
But when the wedding is threatened and only Lucy can help, can she find the spirit inside to save the day, or will this Christmas be even more disastrous than the last?

I've certainly been spoilt with new books from my favourite authors recently.
I just bought the new Maureen book Maureen and The Big One by Jonathan Hill.
I also bought Seesaw - Volume II by Rosen Trevithick. I know I've read some bits of it as she releases shorts and novellas all over the place, but I'm looking forward to reading the new stories.

And as for tomorrow's release .............................. Wow :)
