The Accidental Indies, by Robert Finley, bears reading at least twice, although in description it sounds very is about Christopher Columbus and his first voyage toward what we now call the Western Hemisphere.

The point of view is that of an observer, travelling alongside the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria.

Praise For The Accidental Bad Girl **STARRED REVIEW** "Kaplan’s sharply written, twisty thriller, narrated by the savvy Kendall, deftly explores the shades of gray between “good” and “bad” and the freedom of self-acceptance and shines a light on issues such as rape culture, bullying, and enduring sexual double standards.".

Accidental Activists quickly becomes a story of more than just two men, with significance beyond the state of Texas. This book is the universe in a grain of sand: an incredible, detailed, humane account of one couple’s activism for same-sex marriage.

Way back inI wrote an article here on Indies Unlimited about how I would (almost) NEVER write a sequel or a series.I ranted quite a bit about inspiration vs. conscious, mechanical design of a plot, and I named names.
