Fabulous Authors, Fabulously Priced…just for You!

I found this amazing group of Indie authors – Indie Romance Ink - through my good author friend, Genevieve Jourdin.  Their sole purpose – to support other Indies and help one another collectively.  In a highly competitive, flooded market, we have NYT Bestsellers, USA Today Bestsellers and award winning authors taking time to teach those of us that aspire to earn those same accolades. 

Good people doing good things to help mentor others along in their industry.  Shouldn’t there bit a little more of that in the world? 

So we are having a sale – together – to introduce our fans to other Indie authors and share the love. I have invited my friends from Indie Romance Ink to post comments below with blurbs about their books that are featured in the sale, so please browse through the comments and feel free to leave some as well if you would like.  You know I love to hear from you!

Go to Book Lovers' Buffet. There are category pages for various genres.  There is also a link to enter the contest (it is easy, just click click click) to win some EPIC gift card prizes – all brought to you by the fabulous authors at Indie Romance Ink – you love them already, right?

Besides the fact that this is a great opportunity to stock your eReader full of awesome books at amazing prices, I am personally asking you to take some of your time to support them – because they are good authors and good people.  It’s a  Win – Win!  Please support these Indies. 

The sale runs through tomorrow (May 3rd). 

Thanks Peeps, for your ongoing support.  XO


  1. Heather Fangs so much for the opportunity to share! I write as Mona Karel, and have two books in this wonderful promotion: a paranormal romance My Killer My Love and a contemporary romance Teach Me To Forget. Both are available from Amazon, and are on their category page for the buffet.
    Isn't this a wonderful way to find new books and meet great, supportive authors? Writers are the BEST

    1. Mona - it most certainly is!! Thanks for coming over!

  2. Thanks Heather for supporting the event and for posting our blurbs. Here's mine from The Beckoning of Beautiful Things:
    “You’ve called me. I’ve come. Does this mean you’re prepared to face the darkness?” Kali’s ancient voice was like a blade being ground against a spinning stone, deadly and insistent. Her old eyes bulged fierce and huge. A necklace of heads swung from her neck, while her skirt appeared to be arms – rows and rows of arms, their fingers held in place at the waistband with leather laces.
    “I…I…I don’t know.” Marissa’s eyes jumped to the dried blood at the end of each arm and the vacant eyes of the heads.
    “Should I ask the numen?” One finger reached toward Daniel’s cheek and slowly snaked down to his neck. “I’d love a younger man.”

    1. Thanks Calinda - I am looking forward to reading this. :)

  3. Thank you for mentioning the Buffet on your blog! There is a great selection of historical romances served up for 99 cents, including REDEEMED, set in Charlemagne's Empire. Doeg requires two things in a wife. Philantha has only one requirement in a husband, but it challenges the barriers Doeg has maintained for decades around his heart and body.

    1. Thanks Jill for stopping by the blog and sharing!! :)

  4. Great post, Heather!
    Love this group of Indie Authors and love this book buffet website!
    I have book 1 of my romantic comedy mystery series, The Throwbacks, on the mystery, thriller, romantic suspense page.
    Here's the snap on The Throwbacks:
    To salvage his career, exiled Scotland Yard "Flying Squad" detective, the not-so-young David Young, joins the Boston Police Department.
    But this rogue detective can’t resist an unlikely romance with his young and vivacious decorator, Grace Rogers, even when she becomes a key witness in his high-stakes case--and like Kryptonite to his career and well-being.

    The Sheikh's Spy: Taken as collateral against her brother's gambling debt, Olympia is not cut out to live in a sheikh's harem. When she learns that the life of the neighboring Sheikh Adnan of Zahiria is in danger, she escapes and presents herself to him in his heavily guarded palace in the middle of the night.

  9. Good morning Heather and all! Good morning for a sale.
    Haunting Refrain is on sale in the Paranormal section.

    Sarah can't figure out how to tell her best friend that she has ghosts in her attic and that she and William were married to each other in a previous lifetime. He doesn't believe in such things. Ha!
    The story is an emotional read and a fun one.
    One reviewer said the only thing wrong was that it ended.

    Happy reading!

    1. I will go check this out. Thank you Mary for coming over this morning!! :)

  10. Heather,

    Thanks for highlighting the book buffet on your blog. I'm excited to be a part of it too. For those contemporary romance fans:

    Content to hide behind her camera, Maddy Adams often feels more comfortable observing life rather than actively participating in it. For the past five years she’s focused only on her studies and building her photography career. The summer after her college graduation, Maddy returns to Lake of the Pines for her sister Liv’s wedding. While she’s happy her sister has found love again, Maddy wonders if she’ll ever find love herself. Her college roomie keeps pressuring her to go out with her older brother, who happens to be vacationing at the same lake. Maddy doesn't want to go on another blind date, but after blowing it with the gorgeous man she met on the beach she doesn't have anything to lose. Or does she?

    Liv Reynolds can't remember when anxiety and panic didn't play havoc on her life. Recently divorced from a man who wouldn't or couldn't understand her, she retreats with her daughter to her grandmother's summer cottage on Lake of the Pines. Liv has fond memories of the summers she spent there with her grandparents. Always a safe haven, she hopes to spend the summer relaxing, healing and finding herself again. In the midst of a panic attack, she finds herself face-to-face with Cameron Preston, the boy with whom she'd spent her childhood summers. In love with him back then, she never found the courage to tell him and they drifted apart...Her heart leaps at the second chance for love. Confusion swamps her as she tries to figure out why Cam keeps pulling away... Can Liv rekindle their old friendship and to turn it into something more?

  11. I'm so happy to be part of this dedicated group of authors. Thanks for the opportunity to post. My books in the sale are:

    Sink or Swim:
    After starring on a hit game show set aboard a Tall Ship, personal trainer Cassidy Novak discovers that she has attracted a stalker. Can she trust Zach Gallagher, the gorgeous newspaper photographer assigned to follow her for a local series? As things heat up with the stalker and with Zach, soon Cassidy will need to call SOS for real.

    And two young adult novels:

    Dark Before Dawn: When teen psychic Dawn Christian gets involved with a fortuneteller mentor and two girls who share her mysterious talents, she finally belongs after years of being a misfit. When she learns her new friends may be tied to freak “accidents” in town, Dawn has an important choice to make – continue developing the talent that makes her special or challenge the only people who have ever accepted her.

    Face-Off: Brad’s twin brother T.J. has gotten himself out of the fancy prep school his father picked for him and into the public high school Brad attends. Now T.J. is a shining new star on the hockey team where Brad once held the spotlight. And he’s testing his popularity with Brad’s friends, eyeing Brad’s girl and competing to be captain of the team. The whole school is rooting for a big double-strength win…not knowing that their twin hockey stars are heating up the ice for a winner takes all face-off.

  12. Thank you for inviting us over. Here's a little bit about my book:

    Travel back in time to 1957 for a little drama, a few life or death moments, and a lot of rock 'n' roll romance in WISHING YOU WERE HERE

  13. Thanks for posting about the sale. The selection is great - something (or several somethings!) for everyone.

    If you’re interested in mystery and suspense, HONOR CODE is available in the mystery/thriller/suspense area.

    Here's the blurb: In a small southern town where everyone knows each other's business, veteran detective Larry Robbins must solve the disappearance of eighty-year-old widower George Beason.

    When evidence arises that Beason may have left town on his own, it would be easy for Robbins to close the case, but his gut instinct tells him more's at stake. As he uncovers clues about Beason's deceased wife and his estranged daughter, Robbins must untangle conflicting motives and hidden agendas to bring Beason home alive.

  14. Thanks so much for sharing your blog with us.

    Happy to be a part of the Book Lovers Buffet with my contemporary western romance-- @ .99 cents-- Howdy, Ma'am Bk #1

    One photographer starting over.
    A cowboy coveting a gold buckle.
    When Italian class meets bull rider rowdy—
    You're bound to get sparks…or sizzle.

    Happy to share with so many wonderful authors!

  15. Many thanks, Heather, for letting us highlight the books we have on the Bouquet of Books sale. May the ghost of Shakespeare send fertile dreams to your imagination! My 99c books in the sale are science fiction with romantic elements:

    The Trial of Tompa Lee – Framed and abandoned to cruel alien justice—trial by combat against 300 accusers!—only Tompa's enemies, including the hunky cop who arrested her, can help.

    The Midas Rush - All shepherd Tresky Buffrum wants is a taste of adventure. Instead he finds a mysterious virgin bride, mad murderers, and aliens who are either gods ... or demons.

  16. Thanks for spotlighting the 99-cent sale, Heather! It's been a lot of fun, I'm glad it's been extended through the weekend.

    Party-girl Allison Kelly has it all--great friends, a flourishing business, and an active sex life. She's beautiful, busy and blissfully fulfilled, with no time or inclination for a relationship. Sure, she suffers the occasional twinge of loneliness. Who doesn't? But if her latest boy-toy is unavailable, there's always another one at her friend's dating service, Cupid's Cavalry.

    Life has been anything but a party for Benjamin Turner. Orphaned at fifteen, widowed at twenty-three, he traveled the world on self-imposed exile, but he couldn't outrun the loneliness eating away his soul. Finally home again, he's dedicated to serious endeavors--ending world hunger, providing clean water--not partying. But he's also ready to give life and love another chance. It's Cupid's Cavalry to the rescue. Maybe.

    He's looking for stability. She wants a good time. Will Cupid's arrow find its mark this Valentine's Day, or will their pairing prove to be Cupid's biggest mistake?
