Two of the 100 Indie Books You Should Read Before You Die

Great works of literature are being produced by wonderful independent authors who are breaking the mold in the literary world of fiction.

Too many literary sources completely omit or overlook Indie Books when compiling their lists of the 100 books you should read before you die. They showcase the legends, the classics.

Yet, we are fortunate to have a lot of outstanding books by outstanding indie authors in today’s literary marketplace. We are continuing our series featuring great indie books you should definitely read in your lifetime, knowing that the list will always change with the passing years and with the release of new books.

Here, in no particular order, are the two books we are featuring today.

Yesterday People

By Terri Herman-Ponce

David Bellotti will do anything to protect his daughter.

And an ancient secret mankind must never know.

Twelve thousand years ago, when hunter-gatherers roamed, David and Ada inscribed a cryptic message on the walls of a secret cave. No one, except for a select few, was allowed to even see it. For millennia, the primal words remained abandoned and forgotten. Until now.

When a famous archaeologist discovers the cave, he has no idea of the forbidden knowledge it contains. Or the connection it has to Earth’s past.

It’s a dangerous discovery in the wrong hands.

After Midnight

Diane Shute

As far as Alix is concerned, she has no past, only today. And her plans for the future are creating a dynamic stable of thoroughbreds that will take the 1830s British racing world by storm.

When forced into assuming the role of Lord Griffon’s wife in London, her plans are threatened by disturbing images of a castle from her past that fight to resurface.

Alix is determined to find a way to take control of her life and fulfill her dreams.

This women’s historical fiction novel is the first in the Midnight Series.
