The first book to go under the spotlight is one that I just received today! One of my friends wrote it and published it with createspace.
Please, give a warm round of applause for teenage author Sahara Adalyn Moran's debut novel, The Midnight Labyrinth!
Guardians, wizards, the Midnight Labyrinth - all part of the past. Forgotten elements of the mighty battles fought in the ancient times of Aselda and its lands. Even stories told to the children of the kingdom of Aselda. Anyone who exercises magic is considered a follower of the legendary evil sorcerer, Seuderak. The safe havens are coming to ruin, leaving no safe places to flee to. The monsters that once threatened Aselda's lands seem to have reappeared, lurking in the shadows, awaiting stragglers.
The only hope that glimmers in the darkness are three unlikely champions - a young inexperienced king, the most wanted thief in all of Aselda, and her younger brother. But will anyone trust them? Most importantly, can they trust each other? If they can even survive the Royal Guard, they will have even harder challenges ahead of them.
Look for my review of The Midnight Labyrinth in the future.
The runner-up to Sahara Adalyn Moran's debut novel, The Midnight Labyrinth, is teenage author, Oliver Dahl's, debut novel, The Dreamer's: A Story of Sam Kullen.

The second runner-up is yet another debut novella by yet another teenage author. I present to you J. Tobias Buller's novella, The War Horn.
When the unthinkable happens, John - the son of a Norman lord - undertakes a journey to fight for the lives of his parents and his people. But its not just any quest. The malevolent Lord Gair demands the legendary Holy Grail, and John knows that Lord Gair will stop at nothing to achieve his goals.
All along, John has been making sacrifices for the freedom he seeks. But before the end, John must confront Lord Gair and stop him, before it's too late. But John's true enemy isn't Lord Gair. It's himself.
On an adventure of daring and excitement, John must make an impossible choice. And to do that, he must learn the true price of freedom.
Keep an eye out for a review of The War Horn by J. Tobias Buller in the future.
So, I hope you all enjoyed my first Indie Author Spotlight post! And I do hope that you look into each of these books.
