The New Face of Underground Book Reviews

January 4, 2016

Welcome to the New Underground Book Reviews

by Amy R. Biddle            

It’s been a long time coming, but it’s 2016 and we’re “officially” launching our new, improved website. We’ve been operating at for the better part of a year, and maintaining our old site as well (.com). Today, we’re making the official switch – From now on, no new articles will be posted on the .com website, and all operations will take place here, at .org! We like to think of our new site as “Goodreads meets Linkedin meets BookBub” but for indie authors only! It’s still a work in progress, but our goal is to connect as many readers, authors and industry professionals as we possibly can. As always, we start by finding good indie books…

Vote for the 2016 Novel of the Year!


We have eleven awesome indie books vying for Novel of the Year. One will be selected as our Editor’s Choice. The Reader’s Choice is up to you! Voting begins January 4 and ends January 28. Haven’t read any of them? Well, most of these books are on sale, so now’s your chance to weigh in on our most sought-after award!

Review of Ligatures by Sara Rich

by Candi Sary       Reviewer Rating: 5 Stars      

Ligatures is for readers who appreciate beautiful language and enjoy a story that both entertains and stimulates thought. It is on the dark side, and is not a simple “feel good” read. Instead, it is a novel with depth and complexity and power. Sara Rich is absolutely an author to watch.

Interview with Sara Rich

by Candi Sary            

Author Sara Rich talks about her graduate research on ancient religions, and how she used her knowledge to craft the world in LIGATURES.

Websites for Writers Part 1: Should You Have Multiple Websites?

by Katie Rose Guest Pryal            

Your website is a very personal thing. It is your personal representation on the internet. Thus: your website is a high-stakes representation of you. At the same time, it is a living creation that you have to maintain and nurture over time.
