Award-winning authors sell more books.
That is a well-known fact.

Many authors, especially newer indie authors, make the mistake of overlooking book reward schemes and contests, without realising the potentially massive benefit such a title could have on their overall sales.

5 great dystopian and post-apocalyptic books that deserve to be read

5 great dystopian and post-apocalyptic books that deserve to be read

Finding a great book can be a bit of a chore. Sometimes you find yourself picking up a few terrible books before you find the one you have been looking for.
I have found that a large number of brilliant dystopian books are actually either independently published or published by small publishing houses, rather than published by huge publishing companies. These great books often find themselves being obscured in the stores and book lists due to the fact they have less marketing support as a consequence of being independently published.

Read on, as here, I recommend five fantastic dystopian books by indie, or rather obscure authors, who deserve more recognition for their work.
If you enjoy a book that I have recommended in this post (even just a little bit), please don't forget to leave the author a review on Amazon, Goodreads or wherever your preferred reviewing platform may be.

Book Blitz: The Boy Who Wields Thunder by Gibson Morales

The Boy Who Wields Thunder

Release Date: December 23rd 2015

Summary from Goodreads:

In 2060, the Naga are in charge. Humanity lives off of 1940s technology and teenagers are expected to spend their post-graduation lives serving a Naga overseer. Living with his adoptive parents in an upscale human city, Olton Sorrell has studied hard to have a great career serving under his father’s Naga friend. 

But as graduation nears, Olton meets the enigmatic Orun, a Naga who reveals the truth about his species’ arrival on Earth and sympathizes with the anti-Naga human resistance. Upon learning the secrets of the Naga, Olton must choose whether to stay true to his family or true to his past. What will happen if he does the unthinkable and serves Orun instead of his father’s friend? 

Olton’s decision will take him to the labor camps of a land once called Greece. Now a slave under the Naga, he is assigned to a top secret operation that may change the world. As Olton navigates dangers both ancient and new, two questions trouble him. What are he and his fellow slaves digging for? And what will he do once they find it?
