Here’s a selection of new titles released in June by some of our authors. They showcase the broad range of genres and styles that we have in this bookstore. Yes folks, you’ll find the best of indie books here at the Awesome Indies! Yay!
In most cases, these books have not yet been AIApproved, but the authors all have other AIA books listed here.
I love all the covers, especially The Golden Dice and the one for Demon’s Grip – I may be biased, of course, since I did have a hand in its design.

Braedyn Murphy used to think nothing important ever happened in her sleepy town of Puerto Escondido. But that was before she learned she was a descendent of Lilith, the mother of all demons. Now Braedyn fights to protect humanity from the Lilitu – the beautiful, souls-stealing daughters of Lilith. As she fights the Lilitu, Braedyn must also fight her growing love for her boyfriend Lucas – because even a kiss could end his life. Their only ray of hope is an angel’s offer to make Braedyn human—an offer she can’t accept until the world is safe from the Lilitu. Braedyn knows she’s a key player in this ancient war… but she’s not ready to believe she just might be humanity’s best hope of surviving the final battle for Earth.

‘A most exemplary work, a real joy to read. The colour, depth and vitality of both the writing and the narrative is stunningly good: the exploration of motives, outlooks and hopes of the characters quite intoxicating…. In many ways, I feel your work sits outside the traditional genre of YA, as I understand it, and ranks as a true work of literary accomplishment.’ Clive S Johnson
“I can’t even begin to describe all of the action you’ll find in this highly imaginative journey. This is a fantastic depiction of a fight between good and evil.” Crazy Four Books.
“A beautifully written, exciting fantasy-adventure with vibrant description.” Krisi Keley, author of Mareritt.
