Indie Fantasy Review Blog

Derek Prior set up a new review blog solely for fantasy books by Indie authors.  I'm recommending a look at  Indie Fantasy Review because I like the reviewing style.  I'm the kind of person who believes it if someone tells me they just read the best book EVA!!   Inevitably, I'm disappointed quite a lot because I expect too much.  (Which is why I get so excited when I read books like Glimpse - I hadn't heard anyone rave about it at the time so I was pleasantly surprised by its awesomeness.)

I like detailed reviews such as those by Red Adept because they give me enough information on things that matter to me.  Some things bother other people but don't affect me in any way.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to find lots of new fantasy books to read if Prior keeps going with Indie Fantasy Review.  So far, the reviews are well thought out, unbiased and detailed without spoilering (or boring me).  Sometimes it can be hard for people to trust indie book reviews that have been written by other indies.  That's understandable so it's nice when someone writes thoughtful reviews that come across as honest and trustworthy.


  1. I saw his blog the other day, looks cool.

    I just browsed the sample of A Little Girl in my room, and read Skeleton in the Closet. You have a seriously twisted imagination, by the way. Not that I didn't like it, but I just really didn't expect that.

  2. Fancy a guest post on my blog in October - you can go pick a date?

  3. August 8th (I'll need it about 4 days before that) on how to build suspense or keep tension in a story (like you did with Skeleton).

    Let me know if that suits.

  4. Thanks for the mention, Claire! Going to go check out Indie Fantasy Review right now.

  5. Are you on Twitter and Facebook?

    The 8th is gone but let me know what suits.

  6. Thanks for the Great Blog Recommendation
