Post by Tahlia Newland.
When authors with books on this site bring out new books, they need to be recommended for the site in the same way as their previous books, and once that happens we’ll tell you about them.
This week, I released You Can’t Shatter Me, a young adult magical realism novella with a solutions-for-bullying theme. Several other Awesome Indie authors reviewed it and all of them gave it 5 stars, so it has earned its place on this site. Yay! That’s a relief. You can read the reviews on Amazon.
To celebrate the release, I decided to have a party on my personal blog and invite authors who had books on the Awesome Indies site to share something about their books there. In return, they are posting something about my book on their blog, so for the next couple of weeks there’ll be a post on my blog every day and a link to a post written by me on another site.
The twenty authors who are coming to my party are publishing their own books and doing it well. They’re not only an inspiration to me, they’re also a support. Going Indie is more than a way of publishing, it’s a community, and this party celebrates both these aspects of Indie excellence.
I hope that you will pick up one or both of these and roll on over to my blog and join the party to find out more about some of the Awesome Indie authors and their books.
Sixteen year old Carly wants to write her own life and cast herself as a superhero, but the story gets out of control when she stands up to a bully and he turns on her. His increasing harassment forces her to deal with flying hooks, giant thistles, deadly dragons and a suffocating closet. Dylan, a karate-trained nerd who supports her stand against the bully, turns out to be a secret admirer, and while he struggles to control his inner caveman, Carly searches for her own way to stop the bully. An old hippie shows her an inner magic that’s supposed to make her invincible, but will Carly learn to use it before Dylan risks all in a violent confrontation?
This heart-warming story will inspire and empower teens and adults alike. As well as providing real solutions for the bullying issue, the unique magical realism style provides an exciting and unusual fantasy element.
