Friday 5 - Indie/Small Press Authors at the Top of My List

This week my five go to some Indie/Small Press authors that have caught my attention. I've read their work and enjoyed it immensely. I encourage you to go out to Amazon and look up their work and grab a copy whether it be digital or print. Enjoy!

1. S.M. Boyce

S.M. Boyce is a fantasy author best known for THE GRIMOIRE SAGA. This series is a fresh look at epic fantasy and the traditional themes that go along with it. I've read the first two books in the series and was pleased with what I say. I heartily recommend this story to readers of fantasy!

2. Justin Macumber

Justin Macumber has multiple titles out on the market right now (A MINOR MAGIC and HAYWIRE) and a couple in the works. He delves into the fantasy and science fiction genres, and has a horror title that he is currently working on. He also co-hosts a couple podcasts. I love catching The Dead Robots' Society every week!

3. Kayla Curry

Kayla Curry is the author of the Mystic Stones Series. The first novel in this series is OBSIDIAN. She also has a companion short story out called, RUBY. She writes paranormal fantasy and romance. If you enjoy the genre, you should definitely check it out. I read OBSIDIAN and enjoyed her storytelling and flow.

4. Richard Johson

Another zombie apocalypse story, "Oh no!" That's what many would probably think when they read the title, DEAD DRUNK: SURVIVING THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE ... ONE BEER AT A TIME and see that it's about zombies. However, I've read this book, and I couldn't stop laughing. Johnson combines zombies, comedy, and the serious nature of an 'end of the world' story perfectly.

5. Paul Elard Cooley

Cooley's Garaaga's Children series combines Historical Fantasy and Horror perfectly. I could feel myself sliding into the world he creates easily. The nature of the unknown, dark forces, and humanity all pull the reader in and keep you turning the pages. Definitely check out these short stories and novellas.
