New Website: The Indie eBook Hall of Fame

From the Tele-read Article

This site is designed to be a one-stop filter for readers to help them find the best of the best indie ebooks being reviewed out there in Blogland. To land on the list, the book must be available in ebook form in multiple formats, and must have been reviewed (and recommended!) by at least three independent bloggers—not just Amazon, Smashwords or Goodreads reviews, but full-on write-ups by bloggers who are reviewing indie books.

From the Website

Welcome to the Indie eBook Hall of Fame! In this digital age, authors can get their work out there in the world without going through the 'gatekeeper' of a traditional publisher. But with no gatekeeper, how do readers separate out the really great indie finds from the sea of mediocrity as they navigate the uber-slushpile that is the internet? Well, they can start right here!

All the books listed on this page have been personally reviewed and vetted by book reviewers who feature indie books on their blogs. In order to be listed on this page, a book must meet the following criteria:
  1. It is available in ebook form
  2. It is sold in multiple formats, at least one of them from a DRM-free vendor
  3. It has received a positive recommendation from at least three independent bloggers -- Goodreads and Amazon customer reviews do not count.

There are some other rules for reprint and backlist books, so please see the site for more information.
