This is the place to find excellent fiction written by Indie authors.
Our goal is to have a place for you (the reader) to find excellent new authors, and not have to wade through 1-3 star books to find them. How do we pick the novels featured on 5-Star Books? First, the book must have predominantly 5-Star reviews on Amazon.com. After that qualification, we look at the cover design, the number of reviews, what readers are saying in those reviews, when the book was published, and other subjective factors.
You will see some extraordinary reads that are so outstanding that they are listed in more than one genre. We have done this to maximize that novel's exposure to new readers.
As a firm principle, we do not receive compensation from any author or publisher to list their book. This ensures that the novels on 5-Star Books are indeed worthy to be here.
The Resurrection of Deacon Shader is available to borrow through the KindleSelect lending library. If you are an Amazon Prime customer you can borrow the book for free. This is the forerunner of the Shader series, an epic fantasy written in the old style. The Resurrection of Deacon Shader has seven reviews on Amazon.
I've made good progress on The Unweaving. Once my latest editing commission has been completed I'll be dedicating a few hours each day to getting book 3 finished. That will complete the first Shader trilogy. I'll then be free to resume work on book 4, The Archon's Assassin, which is already in fairly good shape.
I also have a Shader novella to finish off in the next few months -- The Seventh Horse.
The second book of The Chronicles of the Nameless Dwarf is also well underway. The Axe of the Dwarf Lords should appear before The Unweaving, probably at some point in January, once the cover art is finished.
Book 1, The Ant-Man of Malfen is currently only $0.99 in the US and Free in the UK.
