Submissions

If you have a book you’d like to see us review–either your own, or one you’ve read–please let us know at submissions@indiebookpodcast.com. It can belong to any genre, but it must be a self-published book.

Submitting a book doesn’t guarantee we’ll choose it for the podcast. If we do, we’ll provide an honest, in-depth discussion of the book, including our opinions on its plot, characters, and style. We may also include short excerpts.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

  1. My comedy novel, Grand Duchy, is about a midwesterner, Fletcher Hart, who is fed up with his country and who, after the cluster -ahem- fudge surrounding Hurricane Katrina, does what any normal, red-blooded American would do: he secedes and declares his 20 acres in southern Illinois to be The Grand Duchy of Belle Claire. The story goes viral on the Internet and odd, misfits begin to show up, wanting a new start and to join his new “country”.

    Working as a comical microcosm of the current state of affairs here in these United States at the beginning of the 21st century, the novel allows the reader to take a humorous look at, possibly, failed aspects of The American Dream: politics, family, wealth, poverty, celebrity, sex, drugs and rock and roll and to wonder where we go from here. And possibly to ruminate a little about community and government and whether there is a tipping point beyond which no system works.

  2. “Enchantment,” a young adult paranormal romance is getting great reviews at Amazon and GoodReads.com.

    Here’s the back of the book blurb:

    Channie is a lovable teenage mage that lives a simple but magical life with her clannish community deep in the Ozark Mountains. She’s blessed with the ability to enchant those around her, charming not only her family and friends, but any boy with a pulse that doesn’t know how to shield himself against her magic.
     
    When her father’s gambling addiction earns the wrath of a powerful mage, the family is forced to flee for their lives. They escape to the suburbs of Colorado hoping to hide amongst Magically Disabled people (like you and me).
     
    Channie’s parents are overwhelmed by the modern world and panic when they catch her flirting with a group of “dirty-minded, non-magical city-boys.” They strip away her power of enchantment and replace it with a chastity curse that automatically zaps any boy foolish, or courageous, enough to pursue her.

    Josh Abrim — a BMX racer with a killer smile, Olympic dreams and dangerous secrets of his own — is exactly that kind of boy. When he and Channie realize their interest in each other is more than just friendship, she turns to dark and forbidden magic, determined to break the curse keeping them apart. Her inexperience makes matters infinitely worse and unleashes a malevolent force with the power to destroy everything they love … including each other.

    • Hi, Joeven,

      Not too many people, but I’m hoping to grow that. We’ve been in a bit of a hiatus over the last four months – having a baby will do that to you, evidently. Hoping to get busy making some new eps soon– and with luck, we’ll see if we can attract some more listeners.
