  6. We all know how difficult it is deciding whether a book whose blurb claims it's a combination of Moby Dick, Pride and Prejudice, The Big Sleep, Great Expectations, etc., etc. is actually any good. Of course, it's always a subjective call, but it does help to find a site which applies what business calls Quality Control and uses serious reviewers to assess a book's worth. More please.

  7. Awesome Indies takes the guesswork out of choosing indie fiction. All titles are judged by those who know quality when they see it. What a fabulous initiative!

  8. I've just done that promotion - and bought 'Seeds of Time' too.

  9. These look great! I love the look of this new website too! Good luck with this.
