Welcome to the Awesome Indies Grand Opening Party


Welcome to our website Opening Party.

Come on in and pick up the best reads in bargain ebooks

The Awesome Indies have found a way to take the risk out of buying indie. If it’s Awesome Indies Approved (AIA), a qualified publishing industry professional has determined that it’s as good as something produced by a mainstream publishing house. Readers need no longer wonder if that book is really worth downloading. If a book is listed on the Awesome Indies – then it is worth your time.

That’s the quick version of what we do. For more details see our Home Page and if you want the full story check out our About Page.

The 99c sale is on until the end of the 25th (PDT ie Amazon.com time), but while you’re here make sure you check out what else we have to offer. Subscribe to our blog posts (see button on the left side bar) or sign up for our AIA Reader’s Club.

You can see all the books on the sale and a little bit about them by clicking on the button.


Come back tomorrow to watch an amazing video and vote on the best explanation for who the piano-playing dog is and what he’s doing.

On Friday,  there’s a fun quiz that will help you to find your way around the site.

Day four of the Awesome Indies Grand Opening party, (Saturday)  is meet the author day. Come back and find out why they’ve chosen independent publishing, watch a crazy video and read the author’s stories.

About Tahlia Newland

I'm an award-winning author who writes heart-warming and inspiring magical realism and contemporary fantasy. I also mentor authors. When I'm not reading, writing or reviewing I might be found doing a very casual teaching day at the local high school, making decorative masks or sitting on my veranda and staring at the Australian rain-forest. You can see all my books on my website at http://tahlianewland.com
