Did you know that Halloween Romance was a thing? Every year I am bombarded with Christmas Romance (not that I am complaining too much!), but I've not stumbled into a wide array of Halloween-themed ones. I am sure If the Broom Fits is not the first one of its kind, but it's the first one that ran across my RADAR, and from an author whose stories I already trust to be great.
This planner is designed to walk you step-by-step through many of the common tasks related to self publishing, from budgeting your cover design to templates for signing up ARC readers.
I wish I'd had more media available to tell me this. I wish someone had known that someone like me would need to know that I was not wrong, dirty, or bad. That my feelings were perfectly normal.
Leaving a starred review is simple enough on sites like Goodreads and Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Honestly, anywhere people look for book recommendations or buy books is great. Goodreads and Amazon reviews don't need to be especially insightful or eloquent. A simple "I liked it!" will suffice, and if you're up for it, maybe add a reason why. If you do want to write a more extensive review, post links to it on your social media.
The ARC reviews for Blood of the True Believer are starting to trickle in, with release day ONLY NINE DAYS AWAY! Can you tell I'm excited?
You ever pick up a book so fast based on the elevator pitch alone? That's exactly what I did when I saw the blurb for Nadia Gilkes' Woke Up Dead.
If you enjoy horror, this is a great psychological slasher that keeps tension building upon tension. Give it a chance, and may it be your gateway to Indigenous spec-fic!
This Fantasy Romance does many things that more professionally published authors have failed to give me, and a good number of those things have to do with the protagonist, Maddie. As I said in my Goodreads review of this title, Sanatra has removed many of the elements that frustrated me with Bella Swan in TWILIGHT, or rather, the way her wants and desires were treated in the text by the author and the surrounding characters.
In telling Emily's story, author Andrea Fink has pulled off some plot elements that impressed and entertained me in a richly layered world, with intricate rules and politics.
I recommend this to fans of high fantasy, zombie stories, and maybe even Dungeons & Dragons. In fact I purchased the audio version for my spouse on his commute. I mean, Kaia knows the #1 rule of fighting undead: Don't just set them on fire, because then you have ambulatory fire, and that is not something we can turn our noses at in this house of fantasy lovers.
