The Robert E Kreig Collection So Far
Hi. I'm Robert E Kreig and I make stuff up.
Since beginning my adventure in writing, I have managed to publish three books, currently available as ebooks through a number of good online book stores. I have also written another two awaiting publication and I am now working on my sixth.
I've launched my own web site (www.robertekreig.com) and, through social media, I have been able to make contact with many great independent authors who have offered some terrific advice and written some amazing books that more people really do need to pay attention to.
Just go to readersfavorite.com or www.goodreads.com and look into preferred genres rather than favourite authors and you just might be surprised what and who you discover.
I recently discovered a couple of excellent writers through my contacts on social media, and by digging behind the big publishing house titles. If I could recommend just a couple, I would start with Ellie Midwood who is a fantastic writer. Her Girl From Berlin series of books are sublime.
Another I have uncovered is Lewis Stanek. His short story, The Haunting of Reuversweer was as creepy as horror can get. A very nice twist at the end.
I would also recommend people try Tim McBain & LT Vargus.
Definitely check out Nathan M. Farrugia. Another Australian author who writes a pretty mean thriller.
The list goes on and on. I'm still uncovering and discovering some wonderful and exciting treasures out there in the independent world. Some of which I can honestly say are of a much higher quality than many of the main stream books I've read of late.
It almost appears that many of the big name publishers are only willing to invest in the already established authors with recognisable names. But they are definitely missing out on a rich resource of narratives written from the heart, filled with passion and topped with fresh, creative minds.
Do an independent author a favour and buy one of their books. After you've read it, and you will enjoy it, go and leave a review at Amazon.com and iBooks, or any other online bookstore that their novels are for sale in.
