~Book Review~ “The Independents II: A Short Story” by Aaron L. Speer


New author Ben Towers finally has what he wants most in the world . . . a contract from a publishing house.  His dreams are finally coming true, that is until his former best friend Josh claims the book is his and that Ben has stolen it.

Ben insists the book is all his to both his girlfriend (who just happens to be Josh’s ex) and his publishers . . . going as far as to sign legal documentation to the fact and discrediting Josh both legally and socially.  With the controversy pushing pre-orders and interest higher and higher, Ben has no time for anything or anyone that is not book or publisher related . . . including his live-in girlfriend . . . who really only wants a Ben to be happy and a few minutes of his time to talk about something other than his book.

Of course, someone else knows Ben’s darkest secret, and they want him to give credit to Josh.  When Ben refuses to heed their warnings and threats, the Independents decide to teach Ben a lesson he won’t soon forget . . . because, if you insult one of them, you insult them all.

Aaron L. Speer has packed quite the punch with his newest short story The Independents II.  Aaron’s tongue in cheek commentary of the Indie book community and the drama that can occur is spectacular.  In less than 30 pages, Aaron tells a complete story with characters you love to hate as their greed and quest for notoriety always gains them the attention of The Independents, who bring a sense of morality to the book community that is not easily forgotten when you are in the wrong.  A fun and thought-provoking horror quickie! 5 stars!

When Ben Towers recieves a lucrative publishing contract for his debut novel, it is most definitely a dream come true.

But there’s just one problem.

His former best friend Josh takes to social media claiming that the idea for the book was stolen by Ben. Now Josh will publish the true manuscript as an Indie author.

The controversy drives interst in the book through the roof, and although this pleases Ben’s publisher, they ask him to confirmabsolutely that the book is indeed his idea as lawyers are now necessary.

When Josh is shut down in all his avenues, the pathway to the release event is clear. Or so Ben thinks…


About the Author:


I love writing adult paranormal fiction. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts….oh my. I’ve been writing since I was 11 but I’ve always been a dreamer……often getting caught staring off into space as I created stories in my mind.

When not spending time with family I enjoy dragging my forever patient wife to watch my beloved St George Illawarra Dragons, going to the movies for the latest blockbusters, going to the gym for my dream body. Or just a body. Anything, really.

My beautiful wife and I just welcomed our first child into the world. My fans have declared him the Prince of Speerverse and claim he seems to take after me in his want to build the tension as high as possible…making us and our loved ones wait 3 long days for him to make his entrance. My wife and I live with the love of our lives in Sydney, Australia; the setting for the majority of my works.
