Help Indie Authors Sell More Books with Our Store

Professor Penguin studies for greater knowledge.

We want to help indie authors sell more books. It doesn’t matter whether people purchase the books from us, from the author directly, or from Amazon. What matters is that the books get sold, so that the authors can eventually bring their stories to life full-time. That’s one of the ideas behind our store and workspace, but why is it important to help indie authors sell more books?

Buddhist Fiction and Non-fiction by Former Marine and Current Monk

Buddhist fiction and non-fiction Author Darren Lamb at Salt Lake Comic Con

Darren Lamb calls himself the Worst Buddhist. He served in the Marines and is a veteran of the first Gulf War. His books combine the sensibilities and philosophies of Buddhism with the frailties of the human condition and surreal or fantastical situations. Lamb takes his life experiences and translates them into fast-paced action with great characters. Lamb writes for adults as he honestly explores what it means to be alive and what responsibilities spiritual people have to the world.
