My name is Preston Leigh and I discovered the indie side of publishing around the beginning of 2014. It started when I picked up Wool by Hugh Howey at Target. I did not read it right away. I went online to see what else Hugh had written and that is when I found out about the Indie Side of publishing. The first author I read was Jason Gurley. I was hooked as soon as I started to read his stories. Once I read everything he had I moved on to Michael Bunker. Once I discovered Michael Bunker my indie world exploded and it has been growing ever since.
Where did I get the name The Leighgendarium? There is a book by Michael Bunker and Kevin G. Summers called Legendarium. The Legendarium is “a metaphysical library that exists at the nexus of the multiverse. Inside this library are doorways that lead to every world ever created in literature.” Since my last name is Leigh (pronounced Lay), I asked Michael and Kevin if I could play on the title and call my bookcase The Leighgendarium. They both gave me permission and my indie bookcase received its name.
My Leighgendarium holds all of my indie books that are autographed by the author. I have been told it is a pretty impressive indie book collection, and the authors like to see where they are on my shelf.
Thanks to a certain author, I was told that I should start a blog where I can post all of my reviews and can interact with other people who like Indie Publishing. It sounded like a good idea and the blog was born.
I hope you enjoy the blog.
