1888PressRelease - Five-Time Novelist K.L. Bone Supports Other Best-Selling Authors in the Publishing Industry.
Established dark fantasy author K.L. Bone wants to drive the success of independent writers, and as a member of Dauntless Indies, she's helping to do just that. Dauntless Indies is a group of 15 independent paranormal and romance fiction writers who work together to promote each other's work. As a member, Bone takes part in a number of activities to support individual artists at various stages of their careers.
"I know firsthand how challenging it can be to publish and promote works as an independent author," explains Bone. "Dauntless Indies is an incredibly talented group of emerging and established writers who also know the value of teaming with others to achieve publishing success. With unparalleled opportunities for cross-promotion with writers in a variety of genres, I'm grateful for the opportunity to be a member. The support of Dauntless Indies has been invaluable, and I look forward to helping other artists in the pursuit of their passion as they establish themselves in the industry."
One of the most visible ways Dauntless Indies helps increase book sales of the group's authors is through Goodreads give-aways. These promotional opportunities allow readers to receive free electronic copies of books by Dauntless Indies authors in exchange for posting a review. The specific novels available through the give-away program change every two weeks.
Bone states, "It's a great way for the public to be exposed to new works, and for writers to gain a new following for their subsequent books."
Bone's novels have been featured on Goodreads previously and, in September, the site will offer Black Rose (Volume 1) as a give-away. Black Rose, a tale of dark fantasy, tells the story of two Captains of the Immortal Courts: Mara of the Black Rose and Edward, Captain of the Lorcan Royal Guard. Together they embark on a tangled love story that spans over a millennia of pain and heartache as the two captains struggle to balance honor and duty against the desires of their hearts as Edward finds himself betraying Mara for the young Liza, a Princess Mara was sworn to protect.
When the ruthless Queen learns of her daughter's forbidden love for Edward, she tortures him while her daughter is forced to watch. In desperation, Mara takes Liza's place and looks on helplessly as Edward endures the torments which break his body and Mara's soul. However, all of their pain is put aside when Liza is murdered by the rulers of a rival court. Haunted by her failure to protect the Princess and adhering to tradition, Mara takes the vow of the 'Black Rose' an ancient oath that compels her to abandon the life she knows for the sake of a single goal: vengeance. Black Rose is a tale of retribution, love, and above all, honor-at any cost.
Bone's sequel, Heart of the Rose: A Tale of the Black Rose Guard (Volume 2), was just released in August. Further information about the Dauntless Indies can be found on their blog, Facebook and Twitter.
