Why? Recently. i've been discovering sooo many indie authors on my Kindle. Initially, i downloaded one random book for 99 cents. I thought it'd be ok to spend a mire dollar even i i hated the story... but whoa...i LOVED it! Since then, i've bought about 10 more and added over 50 to my wishlist. Addicted much? I really, really wanted to let these author know how much i appreciate their hard work! So i think exposure of these awesome stories is perfect.
