Bookworms Recommend: Humorous Speculative Reads for May

Image
It's no secret that the Bookworms Discover team skews towards science fiction and fantasy reads, but we're also fans of humor (as evidenced by the fact that we're humor authors as well). Humorous sci-fi and fantasy books usually fall into two categories: wildly popular classics and completely obscure unknowns that you've never heard of. Obviously, we're more interested in the latter. Below are four books, all of which would have been captivating stories if they'd chosen a 100% serious approach to speculative storytelling, but thanks to the addition of a humorous element, are all stand-out tales that we feel deserve more attention.
Nica of Los Angeles by Sue Perry

Sentient buildings, untrustworthy clouds, and one very restless woman who decides to become a private eye makes for a rather entertaining book. In fact, I considered posting last month with the genre mashups, but the quirky, offbeat humor that runs through the story made it a much better candidate for…

Bookworms Recommend: April's Indescribable Reads

Image
Hello and welcome to the first issue of Bookworms Recommend, our series of monthly book recommendations. Every month, we'll highlight a set of books within a similar theme. All of the books presented have been discovered, read, and highly rated by a member of the Bookworms Discover team or a guest contributor (we will always disclose which books have been rated by guests). If you've read an indie book that you feel deserves more attention than it's getting, let us know and we may feature your suggestion. In the interest of providing honest recommendations, we do not accept recommendations by authors for their own books, nor will we accept payment/barter/incentive in exchange for publicity. We only wish to highlight books that we truly believe deserve more recognition than they are getting.

We've decided to begin our series by highlighting the books that exemplify what makes independent publishing stand out from the crowd. Being able to write and publish a unique tale …

Reformatting

Hello Bookworms!  As we stated in our last monthly free book post, we're going through a bit of a redesign. Of course, that was back in February and we said we'd post an update within a week. 
Silly us.
However late, we are indeed posting an update. The goal of Bookworms Discover is still to bring underdog indie books to a wider audience. As such, the plan going forward will be to post a spotlight each month, highlighting a handful of authors our Bookworms Discover team has discovered on their own. Again, we won't have any kind of genre restrictions, but do note at the moment, the team is skewed towards sci-fi and fantasy, but we do plan to diversify. We're also hoping to bring in guest authors to talk about books they've discovered as well. Speaking of which, we've updated our For Authors page, so if you're an author, please check it out.
And of course, we will still have promotions, but instead of small monthly promos, we'll now have two huge promoti…
