The idea is simple. Every year, author Mark Lawrence sends out the call for three hundred indie fantasy novels. Ten bloggers – some co-ops, some lone wolves – will spend the better part of a year reviewing and judging them. At the end, one book is crowned the winner and the author is awarded a selfie stick.
I’m not expecting to get far, as it’s more about fantasy than urban fantasy. But so far it’s been a lot of fun. It’s also proven a great way to discover fantasy written by indie authors. You can find the winners and finalists at the above link. I’ve already begun downloading samples and I’m sure you’ll see me post about a few of them here on the blog.
So go take a look. Your next awesome read could be waiting for you there among the contestants.
