one of the things I like best about my kindle is all the independent authors I've found out about. I've posted before about Maria Hooley (a couple days ago read Rising Tides and would highly recommend it - bawled my eyes out!).
I just finished Sam The Night Person by Lisa Rusczyk. It was really good. The storyline was different, but incredibly interesting. There are links on her blog for where you can buy her books.
If you ever have the chance, give an indie author a chance. There are some really good ones out there.
There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic. ~ The Thirteenth Tale
