About Indie Fiction Digest

Welcome to Indie Fiction Digest, where readers can find indie authors and the wonderful work they are putting out in the world. I am Reina Cruz, an indie author, who has struggled to find fellow writers who have decided to skip the gatekeepers of traditional publishing and take on the publishing business themselves.

By subscribing to Indie Fiction Digest, you will receive weekly emails. These emails include:

  • reviews of short stories (spotlighting those genre fiction writers in small press magazines and on their own independent pages) TEMPORARY HAITUS RETURNING SOON

  • a monthly update of my writing life

  • discussion on the status of the publishing and reading world TEMPORARY HAITUS RETURNING SOON

  • Short speculative fiction

I look forward to hearing from you. The publishing industry is moving fast and it’s through talking with other readers and writers that I find I grow as an author (and a person).


You can also find my work on the following platforms:
