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.

You might remember a couple of weeks ago when I was part of an author talk with SeaWitch Books. If you'd like to listen to the interview and chat, they've started a podcast to make them more convenient. You can listen to it here on Apple Podcasts.
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!
Join me and SeaWitch Books tomorrow, July 16th at 5PM Eastern Time/11AM Hawai'i Time, for a live reading and author talk about BLOOD OF THE TRUE BELIEVER. Event is via Zoom. More info below the cut.
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.
