Treasured Thursdays: Most Treasured Indie Authors

Treasured Thursday is a weekly event created by Touya over at The Reader's Garden that is all about our most treasured. We're hosting it here now, for those of you who are interested in joining me. This week our topic is our most treasured Indie authors! 

I thought this was going to be a very hard choice for me when Lana and I first discussed it. Honestly, there are so many wonderful Indie authors out there; how do we pick just one? So, I asked myself which characters had stuck with me the most after I put their book down? And I realized this wasn't hard at all. My most treasured Indie author is Frankie Rose, author of the highly addictive Hope series.

 I was hooked on Ms. Rose's writing from the very first sentence of Sovereign Hope; she has created the most dynamic and unique characters I've read in a while and I just adore them.  Her books are exquisitely crafted and superbly written with emotion and action; I recommend them to everyone I know who loves to read.  

Sovereign Hope is out now- available in both ebook and paperback, and the second installment, Eternal Hope is due out in October. You can check our archives for my reviews of both books. I promise you'll enjoy the ride if you decide to check them out. 

Frankie Rose was born in the United Kingdom, but now lives with her husband in sunny Australia.

She officially makes things up for a living, and when she's not doing that, she is generally making paper birds out of receipts and old lists or taking photographs that make her smile.

Now, this was really hard for me. Even though I hadn't read an Indie Author book until recently. They scared me. Errors scare me, and for some reason, I forgot about the little thing called, "editing". Duh. Now I love them; I would much rather read something by an independent author than anything else. It makes me happy to know someone didn't come by and change the entire story because they didn't like it. 

That being said, I have been thinking about this all week. But in reality, this really wasn't that difficult, when I considered it. I have told everyone about her books, I am going to order a paperback to have on my shelf, and never let anyone touch it because her book is that good, and her characters are all wonderful. I don't hate any of them (and I always hate at least someone...). I'm talking about J Meyers.

I'm starting to sound like a broken record with how much I talk about Intangible now, aren't I? Oh, well. Maybe you will go read it then. This is a wonderful book! And Intuition (the prequel) is a cute little back story. And it's not some random "I felt like writing" story- It is mentioned in Intangible, and I love that! Everything braids together and it makes me oh so happy! J Meyers is definitely my most treasured :)

J. Meyers grew up in Vermont and now lives in Central New York. When she's not reading or writing, she's chasing her four kids around, exploring the outdoors with them, relishing the few quiet moments she gets with her husband, baking sweet treats, and forgetting to make dinner. Though she cannot actually see the future nor heal with a touch of her hand, she likes to think her children believe she can. Intangible is her first novel.

  1. I'm going to have to agree! I sound like a broken record too with how much I loved Intangible!! Also I just got done reading "Enemy Through the Gates" by D.T. Dyllin that was equally awesome!!

  2. lol :) Both those are excellent books! Have you read Sovereign Hope, Jessy? It's FANTASTIC! I promise you'll love it :)

  3. Most of my friends want to smack me with how often I tell them about Intangible, Jessy, hehe. D.T. Dyllin's books are on my list! I really need to make some progress on that. :)


We love to hear from you!
