#IndieApril is about celebrating independent authors. As an independent author myself, I wanted to take this opportunity to help bring even more awareness to the original English light novel community by highlighting some authors I have come across on Twitter, Facebook, and Discord! This is simply a list of authors and where you can find their works. I do hope that you end up checking them out as our community is pretty niche as we cater to a demographic that is still growing here in the U.S. and around the world.

Without further adieux, here are some authors I feel you should check out!

This should get you guys started! #IndieApril is all month long so this will not be the only post! Please remember to support all independent authors (not just light novelists) during this month!

Of course, once you finish the main course above, save some room for Final Hope and A.R. Dragonfly, which are my two light novel series!
