Self Published Books| Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday

Happy Wednesday people, hope everyone is “cool and easy as the wind blows.” Today Top 5 Wednesday covers Self Published Books. “How do I know if a book is self published,” I thought, so I went ahead to poke around the web for more information. However, I found out that some articles loop Self Publishing and Indie Publishing in one and others separate the two. In an effort to stay book sane, I am including books from both Indie and Self Publishing. In addition, I am listing 5 books which left me the most inspired and were heartwarming reads because for some reason when I think Self Publishing, I think personal with a purposeful story.

So let us dive into it:

1.Ingrid by Lynnette Kraft, published by New Wrinkle Publishing. A company “established by the Kraft family for the purpose of publishing their first creative work.” (Facebook page)

Diverse Characters

Ingrid  is probably one of the books I have mentioned the most on Yelhispressing. It is a heartwarming read about Ingrid, a completely mute girl, who brings together the  village of Scot together through events leading to forgiveness, stronger friendship and change.(Book Review)

A Book Review
I read Born of Persuasion, first book in Price of Privilege Trilogy and I am immensely impressed. In a long time I have not read a book with some much hunger for more. Her metaphors, personification and other literary devices are out of this world. She is one author I am definitely looking forward to reading more of her stories.

Ingrid by Lynnette Kraft [A Book Review]

Standard

Book Review What a heart warming and engaging way to begin a novel: the descriptive birth of two babies entrusted with a mission at that early age. With the use of fantasy and the help of illustration at the beginning of each chapter, the author did a terrific work in showing the novel’s aim at forgiving, loving and togetherness both at the family and community level.

I am not a fantasy reader, so I was hesitant about the role of the mystic lights of the Kumbion creatures, however they played a salient part in showing the outstanding people of Scot, although I am still a bit questioning about their appearances. If you are looking for a novel about people living in a community with togetherness, this is the novel. It is a good story for any age, the bad repents and the good heals. It is indeed a feel good story. It is believable [except the Kumbion creature], the time each scene took, reflected on a period of real horse power, where everyone knew each other in the settlement. I felt that when the author allowed the eventual railway construction into Scot, it was a way of spreading Scot love to everyone instead of trapping it within the city. Scot was on the verge of its modernization.

I was disappointed that Ingrid did not attain that extra blessing but since she was ok with the situation, then I should leave it alone. Most times people are hero(ines) not for what they could gain in the end but simply to help the ones in need. The character transformations were so magnificent and touching, it made me wish that I lived in a village like Scot.
