I have decided to use my blog as a way to provide reviews for independent authors and writers. While my opinion is just one of many, I do try to be fair and bring out what I find is the best within a person’s work. As a writer myself, I know what it takes – emotionally – to write. As a published author, I also know what it takes – in every other way – to put and then have a piece of your heart and soul thrust out into the reading void for all to devour.
I am in a neighborhood book club. Most of the books chosen within the club are books that “everybody else” reads. Classics, Publisher’s Weekly picks, best sellers, well known authors, highly pushed books, big market items. Here on Finding Dori, I am going to focus on independent authors who are either putting out a debut, getting started in a writing career, and not in the mainstream. I will review books that in many cases will not find their way to the women’s book clubs of the world. Some, I actually might recommend to a club. I will read anything.
So far, I have several reviews of indies posted on my blog. I am not going to have any kind of policy or official format for this. When I’m done reading an indie, I will post a review here, on Good Reads and on Amazon. I will share the review to all of my social media.
I am currently reading The Before Now and After Then by Peter Monn.
Here are the indie book reviews I have at this point:
