Recommended Indie books

Since getting a Kindle I’ve discovered some indie published books that are very enjoyable.  Despite not being published by one of the Big 6.  (I know…gasp…)  So I’m thinking from time to time I will share indie books I like, and in particular children’s and teenager books.

A Place Called Perfect

This book was featured along with Seven Lions on Freebooksy.  It is the debut book from Helena Duggan, an Irish writer and graphic designer.  It is a very vivid and fast paced book, about a place that goes to extraordinary lengths to make sure everything is “Perfect”.  After emailing her I learned that she was able to get some paper copies of her book into a local book store.  (Yes, I randomly email authors.  It’s the 21st century and the area of Choose Yourself.  If some doesn’t want to talk to me.  So what.)  Good for her.  I look forward to her next book.

The Little Bleeble

This is a short picture book by AJ Cosmo and I think this is his most recent release.  I was a little taken aback by how adorable I found this book.  It is the story of Mr. and Mrs. Beeble and their wish for a child.  Each parent dreams of how much the child will be like them, of course to only find out that the child is not exactly like them.  I have a one-year-old maybe I am just sensitive to a story like.  AJ also used to be a teacher, but he tweeted me that he no longer is teaching. (Yes, I randomly tweet people I want to meet.  See note above.)  He has several books out, and another book of his seems to be sitting high recently in the children’s category on Amazon.  Good for him.

And here is an article about the success of one of his books.

(While writing this post AJ tweeted that he had a new book out.  The Little Bleeble came out in March.  I hate AJ right now.)

Check out these books for your Kindle.  I hope to post more of these in the future.
