Brafman’s latest is too gloomy to appeal to adult romance fans; a first-rate tale from a real pro; Ivey’s second work is even better than her first; Krueger has written a suspenseful outdoors thriller; Paris makes her smash debut; Rimington’s latest is a rewarding portrayal of the intersection of conscience, service, and doom; Wigg’s title is a sweet yet dramatic and winding love story
When I decided to participate in the SELF-e program, I did so because I saw it as a boon for indie writers, librarians, and readers. As a relatively unknown author writing in the very popular crime fiction genre, I often find it difficult to make my work stand out and to establish a loyal audience. I’ve also found this to be true with the first YA novel that I’ve written. Today, there are so many great books available by both traditionally published and self-published authors that it is more challenging than ever to catch the attention of new readers.
