Y’all, its the next round of IndieMission!!!! We are currently doing #IndiePalooza, but we will be heading into a deep dive into an Indie author after Murderbot Diaries Diaries, and you get to pick the book!!! Hannah randomized the lineup, but without further ado, here it is!!
We will be voting on each of the books starting tomorrow, March 9, and will take breaks on the weekend until we have a pick! This time around we will have two votes simultaneously, because Murderbot is close to being done and we want everyone to have time to purchase the next read! So make sure you’re seeking out both votes each day!
