Hi guys, I hope you are all well. It’s Self-Published Fantasy month, which means September is devoted to self published fantasy books, so I thought it was the perfect time to share my self pub fantasy recommendations. I have six books to recommend to you guys today. Making this post actually made me realize that I really need to check out more self published fantasy books. Anyway let’s get onto my recommendations.
The Sword of Kaigen / M. L. Wang / ★★★★★
The Sword of Kaigen is a self published, Japanese-inspired, high fantasy book set in the same world as the author’s Theonite series, however this book is a standalone and can be read without having read that series.
Blood of Heirs / Alicia Wanstall-Burke / ★★★★
Coraidic Saga – book 1
It is a self published debut fantasy book that follows two main character perspective; Lidan and Ran. It is the first book in a trilogy.
A Tale of Stars & Shadow / Lisa Cassidy / ★★★★
A Tale of Stars & Shadow series – book 1
A Tale of Stars & Shadow is the first book in the series of the same name by Australian author Lisa Cassidy. It was a finalist in the Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off (SPFBO) 2019, which is an annual literary contest run by the fantasy author, Mark Lawrence.
Never Die / Rob J. Hayes / ★★★★
This is a self published fantasy book influenced by Japanese folklore. A young boy called Ein is given the task of killing the Emperor of Ten Kings, but he cannot do it alone, so he sets out to find some legendary heroes to help him in his quest. He must bind these heroes to him, but to do so the heroes must first die.
The Thief Who Pulled on Trouble’s Braids / Michael McClung / ★★★.5
Amra Thetys / book 1
Amra Thetys is a thief who seeks revenge after her friend and fellow thief is brutally murdered. This series is currently five books long, however I do not know how long the series is going to be.
Six Sacred Swords / Andrew Rowe / ★★★
Weapons and Wielders series – book 1
Six Sacred Swords is a light hearted fantasy adventure with a compelling plot and well written characters.
I haven’t actually read a whole lot of self published fantasy, compared to all the traditional published fantasy books I’ve read. I definitely want to check out more self pub. fantasy books, so if you have any recommendations for me, let me know in the comments. Do you guys read a lot of self published fantasy? I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
