Are you ready to be part of indie book history?
If you've read my Montrose Paranormal Academy books ...
Congratulations! You're a pioneer reader of a brand new genre.
Without meaning to, I've apparently created a brand new arena in indie fiction...
Clean Christian Academy!
A well-known indie author asked my writing mentor about these new Montrose Paranormal Academy books racing up the Christian YA Fantasy Charts.
"Is this a new trend I should be aware of, Clean Christian Academy?" Well-known Indie asked.
"It is now," my mentor answered.
Then my mentor told me, "I guess you've found your niche."
Even though my new series isn't overtly Christian, it's clean and it talks about angels.
I targeted the Christian market for two reasons:
Last time I check, they were at #2, #10, and #16. (See the chart below)
Funny thing, there's only 1 other Academy book on the list!
Guess I accidentally honed in on a new genre, and found my niche in the process.
Now, I'll have to be the queen of Clean Christian Academy!
If you haven't read the whole series, Books 2 & 3 are on sale for $0.99 now through 10/13:

Or read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited.
While I'm definitely working on Book 4 right now, I'm also brainstorming of what else to write in my new genre.
I've had some ideas in my head about a spinoff series that follows James on his European adventures.
A lot of his story goes unsaid in the main series, so it might be nice to hear what he was up to before Lucy showed up in Europe.
Or I might send Lucy's younger sister, Paige, to a European version of Montrose Paranormal Academy.
I just came up with that idea recently, and it excites me the most!
Who knows, maybe I'll do both!
What do you think? Feel free to comment below with your thoughts or ideas.
I'd love to hear from you!
Or check out my FB readers group where I posted a survey on the topic.
Thanks for supporting my books and being a part of indie fiction history!
Barbara Hartzler is the debut author of The Nexis Secret—the story a girl with a gift to see the unseen world of angels. And the two secret societies vying for The Seer's allegiance. The Nexis Secret is inspired by Barbara’s college experiences and peppered with anecdotes from her teen missions trip to New York City. She’s always wanted to write, not necessarily about angels, but the idea was too good to pass up. As a former barista and graphic designer, she loves all things sparkly and purple and is always jonesing for a good cup of joe.
