Author Interview with Zara Quentin

Today we have Zara Quentin, author of Airwoman, joining us on the blog for an interview! ALL ABOUT YOU You wrote a book! That’s pretty awesome. Why don’t you tell us a bit about what inspired Airwoman? The initial idea came to me in the middle of a dark and stormy night. A cliché, but it’s true. I was living in Auckland, New Zealand, and […]

Review – Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill

Review – Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill

I was prepared going into Ever the Hunted to love it. To want to buy ALL the copies because I wouldn’t be able to get enough.  So when I started reading and put it down within a few chapters, I knew that dream was going to be shattered. This YA fantasy is every book I’ve read before. I had the same issues with Shadow Fall in the […]

Review – Trial By Fire by Josephine Angelini

Review – Trial By Fire by Josephine Angelini

Trial By Fire by Josephine Angelini is an explosive fantasy novel that kept me wanting more. It takes place in a world where there are many worlds that only a few can see. Lily is a normal girl like anyone else – minus the fact that she’s allergic to literally everything, and she can have epileptic attacks at the drop of a hat. She’s a […]

The Quest to Authordom Feature

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. For me, it’s been a bit stressful with NaNoWriMo almost over and being super behind and I started thinking about all things I don’t know about being a writer in the publishing world, whether it’s the “traditional” route or self-published. Which means that I’m definitely not the only one thinking about that so after a lot […]

Review – Spells and Sorcery by S. Usher Evans

We open to Lexie, a teen girl on the eve of her 15th birthday and guess what? She has magic! Add in a few trope-type sisters, a mysterious but wise older man who somehow makes her understand that magic exists better than her own family, and you have the start of this story. I got all of 3% before putting this one down and picking […]

Review – Timekeeper by Tara Sim

Review – Timekeeper by Tara Sim

Timekeeper by Tara Sim is the first steampunk novel I have read, and I have to say…I’m pretty impressed. It was an LGBTQ+ fantasy novel with mythology roots woven in. Definitely my kind of book. The fact that it took me so long to finish sucks because some things were read really late at night when I couldn’t sleep. It was the only time I […]

So Many Pre-Order Incentives!

So Many Pre-Order Incentives!

Pre-orders are great. It’s like Christmas every release day/week when a book magically arrives on your doorstep. And what’s better than a pre-order WITH SWAG! I have a terrible time keeping track of all the pre-order incentives going on for any given book but thinking about posting more of them if y’all would be interested in having a place to see what’s out there. If […]
