Books on my Nightstand… #2

I am so excited to have these on my nightstand as the next round of books to check out! I met these Indie authors through various social media channels, and they have been amazing to connect with. I have found these authors, as well as a ton of others I have connected with to be helpful, engaging, generous and entertaining. Each of them, in their own way, have really made my days (and nights since most of my writer pals are overseas) super fun!

These books are currently residing on my Kindle, and I encourage you to check them all out! At the very least, follow them on Twitter!  You just never know just what these ladies might say!
