Discover the latest independent literature news and reviews

IndieMuse is hard at work bringing our readers the latest independent literature news and reviews. With the massive amount of self-published and independently released books hitting the crime, humor and horror markets every day, we’re here to sort out the best from the rest.


We’re THE Book Source For the Fiction Bookworm

Many readers don’t realize that they are missing out on some of the best fiction in print and digital due to the stigma of self-publishing. While the independent literature scene makes up for quite a bit of lackluster and (let’s face it) utterly horrible books on the market, the freedom of independence given to authors oftentimes results in amazing literary releases.
