Here is one I recently read that I really enjoyed.
The Trinity Signs

Good versus evil always seems to keep my attention. I can easily see this as a movie. What others are you all reading? I'm looking for something similar in theme, but i like the "indie" price tag of below $3.

Who is Audrey Wickersham?

This one is really good so far. I have read about half of it, and I will let my daughter read it next. It is free to borrow if you're a Prime member, if not it's .99 cents. That's pretty much as cheap as it gets. It's nice to be able to buy books at such low prices, got to love digital!

I found this one, just great!

Zombies Gone Wild! (an anthology) just launched on kindle (paperback to follow).

Scott Nicholson and Bradley Convissar.
Scott often has sales on his novels, and sometimes for free - See his Amazon page. You should also sign up for his newsletter at

While Nicholson is a veteran writer, Convissar is fairly new on the scene. Most of his works are $2.99 or less - to give you a taste, Blink and Last Dance of a Black Widow are currently free. He has quite the wild imagination, and IMO the most original voice in horror since Joe Hill. Be advised that a number of the Pandora's Children tales are being sold as single or double stories, while Pandora's Children: The Complete Nightmares Book 1 and Pandora's Children: The Complete Nightmares Book 2 incorporates them all.

I know this a bit cheeky, but I have two straight horror tales on sale for 99 cents each. Check them out, and let me know what you think.

The first three are on Kindle for $2.99 as well as paperback - for whatever reason Vanilla Heart Publishing hasn't given Lucifer's Calling a Kindle release

The aforementioned

Endurance: A Novel of Terror by Jack Kilbourne (always recommended and deservedly so)

Lights Out by Ryan Callaway (some controversial aspects but it was riveting)

Yearly Harvest: A True Story of Christmas by Ryan Callaway (Tis the season almost - off topic I hate that Black Friday is now starting early Thursday evening. Cutting into Thanksgiving with consumerism and greed... just... eh...)

Lucifer's Calling by Jeffery Martin (disturbing)

I'm working my way through a zombie themed anthology called White Zombie.
White Zombie (White Zombie Anthology)

Disclosure--A friend of mine published it and contributed some of the stories. So far, it's been good. I think that with all anthologies, you'll find some you like and some you don't.

Vee Money says:
if you like graphic novels, check out The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse series written by Michael Mendheim and illustrated by Simon Bisley. It's about the end of days and the struggle to stop it.

Disclosure - I work for them and we're just starting off. Give it a look!

Amazon Kindle:

Book 1 : Helldiver
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Helldiver, Book 1

The Hoard, by Alan Ryker, is a very fast read and a lot of fun. His two vampire books, Burden Kansas (Vampires of the Plains) and Blood Tells True (Vampires of the Plains), are very good too. They're serial novellas that are strong enough to stand alone and still feel complete, a quality I wish more writers would do care to provide when writing sequels.

Here's my review of The Hoard:

I think it's the best of the three of his that I've read.

And thanks Charlene for the loan!

Great review Marc! :) I gotta read that book, my wish list is getting totally out of control!!! :)

Thanks! Being that it's loanable, you might get lucky that way, too.

I guess since he's signed with Darkfuse he is not an Indie anymore.

I think it's great, because he has some writing chops and I think that whoever he is with publishing-wise, is very lucky. : )

Not according to Amazon's terms of service you can't, unless it's in the Meet Our Authors forum. It would probably be best to take your post down before Amazon does it for you.

"Chosenand "Saamaanthaa" -- definitely indie horror. Not just in production and conception, but in a DIY attitude, very punk kind of indie sensibility that runs through both books.

LOL, Marc. It looks like Mr. Neal hit just about every thread in here this morning. It got on my nerves too.

I was annoyed but let it pass without comment until I saw it the 4th time in a row! *sigh*

George, Amazon rules forbid advertising your stuff outside the Meet Our Authors forum. It would probably be wise to delete your post before Amazon does it for you.

I'm not sure if this guy is an Indie or not, but this book is very good. I'm impressed:
City Under the Moon

The guy writes for Robot Chicken. Humor is a big factor in this novel and I found myself laughing out loud many times. Plus the plot is fast paced and original. I'm about 30 pages from the end and I can't wait to finish.

It currently has 38 reviews, none under 4 stars. I also found the info on the book's page helpful-the interview with the author and the celebrity blurbs.
Anyway, just wanted to share with you all. :)
