Not So Winners, Inspiration, and Self-Pubbed Books

Hello readers,

Sorry for posting so late today. I thought I could go somewhere with a contest. But apparently not.

So before I get upset let's get to my topics. Today on Kristy's blog is a Write. Be. Series and today is an inspiration. To me anything and everything is inspiration. I just had a chat with WritersRoad about inspiration. It was awesome! You should join if you haven't already.

Other than that, I'm participating in this month's TCWT blog chain.

The prompt: “Choose one self-published book to read, then briefly review it or talk about your experiences reading it."

I have read self-published books. It's not any different from traditionally published books. As of my little knowledge most self-published books are only in e-book format. And some come free because the authors like to test different genres. Or at least that's what I think. Correct me if I'm wrong.

The first self-published book I've read is 'Born of Fire' by Heather McCorkle. Another self-published book I read is 'Jars of Clay' by Lee Strauss. I've already done a review here on my blog.

So back to 'Born of Fire'. I re-read it because I love it that much. I'm not really into fantasy much, but I'm also a dreamer. I love color vibe thing going on. And in a small amount of time there was so much suspense. Having a baby and being in a car chase. That's all I'm saying, you should read it. I owe to Heather for writing such a good book.

Ah, more titles for me to check out. I really haven't found many *good* self-pubbed titles, but honestly, I don't think I've looked deep enough. There seem to be some amazing ones out there!

stopping by from the TCWT chain

I'll have to check those books out!

Just out curiosity, what was the answer to your contest/puzzle? I tried to figure it out, but only got gibberish.
