I could not think of a better way to celebrate the one-year anniversary of INDIE SPOTLIGHT than to feature once again all of the outstanding authors who have taken part.
Zoe is an ordinary woman who talks to her grandmother’s spirit, was raised by her coven, and is estranged from her father. Until one day she finds out that the necklace left to her by her mom, holds humanities last hope.
Evan is her reluctant protector, the last of the Templar Knights, who's watched her from the shadows since she was a teenage girl. When an assailant from the past emerges and steals the key to keeping the rest of the world safe, Evan and Zoe must form a tenuous alliance to get it back.
Up against a mysterious enemy older than time, and a really pissed off God of War, Zoe and Evan have the odds stacked against them as they try to reclaim the Hope of all humanity. That's if they can avoid killing each other.
When seven strangers impossibly survive a horrific airplane crash, they find themselves changed in remarkable ways. The survivors are endowed with powers that defy explanation. Some are blessed. Some are cursed.
Going their separate ways, they adapt their extraordinary "gifts" to their ordinary lives. The results, however, aren't always pretty -- particularly when one of them engages in a killing spree. With little more to go on than the psychic link that they all share, the survivors seek out one another to uncover the murderer and bring him or her to justice.
The fireman, the grandmother, the psychiatric patient, the basketball player, the mute girl, the rich blonde, and the man in the wheelchair -- they all have secrets worth hiding. They can't trust each other. They can't even trust themselves.
Real estate lawyer, Stephanie Bates, has risen to the top of her field through meticulous sacrifice and goal setting. She has no time for distractions – and that includes pets, messy relationships, and loose ends.
Torin DuMont is a forensic scientist who chose the profession to avoid dealing with people as much as possible. Raised by a stepfather who hated him, he’s been forced to live a life of solitude, fueled by anger and distrust. When wolves and shifters start turning up dead, Torin must battle an enemy bent on destroying those he was born to protect. His greatest challenge, however, is Attorney Bates and the surprising affect she has on his heart.
TORIN is available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
One of the most difficult things for Indie authors to manage is getting the word out about our novels. INDIE SPOTLIGHT is but one step toward accomplishing that goal.
HOW TO GET YOUR OWN INDIE SPOTLIGHT provides all the information you need to get started.
I will build your Spotlight and send you a link you can share with your readers and potential readers. Sending out a notice that your work is being featured in INDIE SPOTLIGHT seems much less self-serving than repeatedly asking folks to buy your book. Your individual Spotlight will be posted to Twitter, Goodreads, Facebook, Pinterest, and Google+.
I have found Indie Authors to be a very generous and supportive group. INDIE SPOTLIGHT is my way of giving back to the community that has lent me so much support. I may be an independent author, but I certainly have not journeyed alone.
Charlie Winger is a prolific mountaineer with a passion for climbing lists of peaks: the 200 highest mountains in Colorado, the 50 state highpoints, over 100 USGS-named peaks in Death Valley, the 57 ultra-prominence peaks in the lower US, the highest mountains in North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Australia, and many more lists few people understand.
Diane takes a more relaxed approach to hiking and rock climbing, and places a high priority on hiking on trails, and hiking to places that are scenic. She is a member of the unofficial “49ers Club,” having reached the top of 49 state highpoints. Her motto: “Just say no to Denali.”
Charlie makes killer Belgian waffles, numerous sick jokes, and enjoys telling climbing stories almost as much as he loves actually getting “out there.” Diane is passionate about her involvement with the service organization Altrusa, enjoys laughing at Charlie’s jokes, and is a self-described computer geek. She is a freelance proofreader who enjoys being allowed to express her obsessive attention to detail in a socially-acceptable manner.
Charlie and Diane live in Colorado.
Ricki Wilson, creator of INDIE SPOTLIGHT and author of MAGGIE'S FALL, is an independent author and professional educator from Oklahoma.
Growing up among genuine cowboys, Ricki learned at an early age to appreciate the true value of a good horse and a faithful dog. Maggie's Fall, Wilson's first novel, is a tribute to both.
If you like what you see on INDIE SPOTLIGHT and would like to help support the effort, please consider picking up a copy of Maggie's Fall for yourself or a fellow reader. Many thanks!
Another great resource for authors is The Kindle Book Review!
