Older adults love to read Middle Grade, Young Adult, and New Adult fiction. But are our critiques of these stories, which are not written for us, always fair?
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?
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!
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.

For my Goodreads challenge this year I made a commitment to read 50 books and make half of them by indie and/or Indigenous creators. I couldn't help but support a fellow Atmosphere writer in the process of reaching that goal, so I picked up Witches & Vampires by Brianna Witte, an Ontarian author who has a number of short story publications under her belt.
