#IndieApril is an annual celebration of independent publishing. Every year, readers from all over the world pledge to buy/read a specific number of indie books during the month of April and invite authors to pitch their work so they can discover new books. This is a great way to support a community of authors that is too often ignored by mainstream media AND find some excellent new books to read.
If you’re looking to invest in some independent books for #IndieApril, look no further! We’ve collected a list of incredible books from several genres, all either self-published or published by small, independent presses.
