Awesome Indie/Self Published Reads (4)

Yay to another week of awesome indie and self published reads. This week we have a mixture of some of my book pick and some of Kim's. Make sure you check them out!

An Apple For Zoe - The Forsaken by Thomas Amo
Missy's review: An Apple For Zoe 
Buy the book: Amazon / Barnes & Noble only $2.99!

The City of San Francisco is locked in a grip of fear. A series of occult murders has led, Inspector Thomas James, to a crime scene similar to a murder committed 90 years ago in the once grand Aleris Hotel. A place where power barons of the early 20th Century engaged in witchcraft. And silent film stars indulged in the most wicked of sins.
A place where no one questions the black smoke the rises from the hotel's incinerators in the middle of the night.


Released by Megan Duncan 
Missy's review: Released
Buy the book: Amazon / Barnes & Noble only $0.99!

After a demon apocalypse kills their parents and everyone they know, 17-year old Abby Phillips, her brother, Carter, and friend, Max flee their home to travel through what has become the wastelands of America. When radio transmissions of a resistance offering shelter and safety cease, Abby is tempted to give up. Struggling to overcome life-threatening obstacles in their dangerous journey, Abby and her companions quickly discover there are much worse things lurking in the dark than they could have ever imagined.


Asylum Lake by R.A. Evans
Kim's review: Asylum Lake
Buy the book: Amazon / Barnes & Noble only $3.49!

The State’s second largest Psychopathic Hospital opened in 1917 on 600 wooded acres overlooking a small lake near Bedlam Falls, Michigan. Through its doors came the weak and the weary, the disabled and the discarded, the frail and the forgotten. But an open door is an invitation, and some visitors, once invited, are loath to leave. The hospital abruptly closed in 1958 under a cloud of mystery. It has remained empty and silent, save for the memories trapped both within its walls and far below the surface of the nearby lake that bears its name. At the bottom of Asylum Lake, the unremembered are growing restless.

Brady Tanner is trying to outrun memories of his own. After the sudden death of his wife, Brady retreats to the small town where he spent the summers of his youth. But he soon learns small towns can be stained by memories…and secrets, too. As Brady is drawn into unearthing these secrets, as he discovers a new love in an old friend, he is also drawn into the mystery of Asylum Lake and the evil that lies submerged beneath its sparkling surface. What is the source of this evil – and what does it want with Brady Tanner?

So there are this weeks picks! We hope that you check out a couple of these and enjoy them like we did!
