    5. Bleeding Heart by Amber Stokes is self published There is a huge stereotype against self published works, but I want to go out there and say that Bleeding Heart s writing outshines many traditionally published books in the world Amber is a master of her craft, and each beautifully worded sentence shows how much time and effort she has put into her novel I loved her careful, vivid descriptions of the wild natural beauty of the setting, and how her characters related to it.One thing I particularly [...]

Over the years, self publishing has had a stigma attached to it Why, I know not in the past six months I, as an avid reader have turned pages on a handful of self published novels, and have found each one to be worth the paper on which they were printed This one is different since it is authored by a lovely writer whom I have been honored to get to know certainly as an encouraging blogging buddy and as a friend Amber sets her story in Oregon in the early 1800 s and on top of a setting she is pas [...]
