Self Published Fantasy Releases – March 2019
It’s that time again. Time I list all the self published fantasy books coming out in March. And by all, I of course mean all the ones I’ve heard about. One day I will achieve omnipotence, but it is not today. A lot of folk have asked me to include Amazon links as well as Goodreads, so I’m gonna give it a go this time. As always, it is far from a comprehensive list, but instead contains all the titles I have found/heard about so far. If you have a fantasy novel you are self publishing in March, let me know either in the comments, or by emailing me, and I shall add it to the page. There are but 3 requirements:
1) It must be a self published fantasy novel.
2) It must have a Goodreads page.
3) It must have a cover.
On to the list!
