Reviewers are a Readers Best Friend: 9 Indie Book Review Sites

Usually on Tuesdays I try to introduce you to one of the great indie authors I’ve become acquainted with. Today I’m doing something a little different. Since I published the first edition of my novel #WhitePicketPrisons last Fall I’ve become acquainted with several book reviewers and book review sites. For those of you reading books by big name authors and publishing houses you’re still paying $9.99 and up for the books you download to your Kindle or Nook. The fantastic little secret I learned when I discovered indie authors over a year ago is that often these “unknown” authors can spin a tale with the best of them and readers benefit because most of these great reads cost anywhere from FREE to $4.99.  Here is a list of several of the sites you can follow on Facebook, Twitter and their full website where you can find info on free e-book downloads literally every day!

http://cynthiashepp.wordpress.com/ Cynthia and her friends specialize in paranormal and paranormal romance novels but you can find reviews and giveaways of almost any genre on her page. Her Facebook page announces lots of free book downloads almost every day. If you’re an author she’s also a great editor. You can follow her on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/cynthiashepp

http://funwithbooksblog.com/ The Fun with Books Blog is run by Rosemary Montgomery and features reviews on a wide range of genres.
