I have been hearing a bit about how indie works are not all that good. The movies are low budget and the scripts would never pass to a big time movie studio. The books are crap and need so much formatting that reading it can cause your head to implode.
The common individual tends to make the mistake at least with books as being those cheep put together in an hour marketing books. Those my friends are not indie books. And indie book would be one such as.
Many people forget to realise that spoon fed stories made into movies tend to run similar. This is because the big studios do not want a public that thinks but rather accepts the trends and buys the goods. If more works were indie style then the studios would have to always provide a bigger material selection and that would go against profit.
True Indie authors and film makers tend to think outside the box. They bring original ideas to life without the limitations imposed on by big money studios. If you want an example of this just look at the summer line-ups. You will see big names like Batman, Avengers, Hunger games. Big effects and catch phrases for the masses. Though the topics online are how similar they are.
If you look back a few years you may remember an indie film that hit it big. It was called Saw this independent horror film spawned a whole series. After all Indie is only short for independent. There are many low-budget independent movies and books that go on to hit it big. The reason they do is because people take a chance on them.
When you pick up a book or even an e-book take a chance on an independent book. You will be surprised as to how many more real good stories there are out there. Do not let the crap marketers selling get rich quick books as indie books. Those are nothing more than digital pamphlets.
A true independent author provides a good story for an affordable price. For less than a gallon of gas I bring you two books in a series with the third one being released after summer.
