First things first, it’s not me hosting this. It’s author Mark Lawrence.
This weekend, Mark contacted me and bounced his idea off of me regarding this self-published author/blogger challenge. We toyed with it back and forth a bit, and he, of course, perfected it. I volunteered right off the bat because it sounded like an amazing opportunity. In reality, I really want to read more self-published books, but it’s hard with all the books I get, unless I set specific time aside to read self-published books and make room for them.
Which is exactly what this project is going to do for me. I will get to read self-published books. I will get to give deserving authors some much needed attention, all attached to the powerhouse name Mark Lawrence. That’s exactly what I like to do. It’s why I keep this website working. It’s a win/win in a lot of respects.
This is definitely a project people should pay attention to.
Self-published authors, in a lot of ways, face an uphill battle. I think Mark’s project is a valiant one, and I sincerely hope it will help those who have worked so hard and have submitted their works.
