Discovering an independent writer

Getting on with the never ending story search and in keeping with today’s fascination with super-short stories, I stumbled onto an independent writer who has published a bunch of short works.

Eduardo Soliz is a tech guy by day and writer by night, or so his Amazon bio says. His seven published e-books bear the mark of self-publishing, which is always a detriment when compared with the flashy cover designs of the professionals.

It’s funny how I can create a cover for my own e-book and think it looks decent or passable, but whenever I see covers of other self-published authors they serve as a deterrent for purchase. This tells me my covers are also a major draw back and mark of amateurism.

We all judge books by their cover more than we like to admit, but I’ll look past it and try sample some of Soliz’ work today. I’ll come back with a short review later.
