There are probably as many reasons to self-publish as there are not to. Today, however, the stigma surrounding self-publishing is far less than it was a few years ago—that’s when Amazon made it very easy for authors to publish their own work in the Kindle store.
There is a joke in publishing circles that says that Kindle is Amazon’s slush-pile, and it’s not that far from the truth. To understand what this means, you need to know what a slush-pile is. Imagine all of the…

Not only was it interesting but it was also a very believable thriller, a la Michael Crichton, thanks in part to Amy’s background in microbiology and biochemistry. And she’s sponsoring an international giveaway for us to host!
For some reason, Los Angeles is…Continue

I’ve been writing since I was 13. I’d recite tales of Conan the Stamp Collector in the schoolyard and have my friends in stitches.

For our book club, we read The Temple Goers by Aatish Taseer and it was a unanimous call that this was 'the best looking book' with the most baseless story we have ever read. In fact, the term, 'Don't judge a book by it's cover', was coined just for 'The Temple Goers'!
The author did not…Continue
