  2. Great site. I see lots of familiar names on your author’s list and read some intriguing reviews, but didn’t find the answer I was looking for–whether or not you review indie ebooks. Do you? I have 3 YA/crossover books self-pubbed. I’m a former college writing instructor (including a course called Writing for Young Adults at Iowa State University) and textbook writer/editor, whose books are all available on Amazon. Please let me know if I can get you further information, and thanks for all you do to promote good books.
