Almost out of TP, soap, & food, Massachusetts bars/restaurants closed for a month ... BUT liquor store was stocked + authors (me too! see below) generously offering free books = bring on quarantine AKA forced-diet. :P *Digs out hoard of mini hotel body wash from under the sink and unwraps protein bar* GET CREATIVE, Y'ALL!

Happy 29-day-long February! We made it through January. It was both eternal and fast for me. I did manage to stick to some goals for 2020, but I've had some other detours. I found more was needed to tell the story in my next book release so I'm a bit behind in my writing schedule, but hope to catch back up soon by adding a new goal: less time on social media (mental health bonus) and more time reading between writing.

I've also caught up on all the shows on my backlog so that's helpful, including: The Witcher, Bojack Horseman, The End of the F***ing World, Zumbo's Just Desserts, the Mandalorian, and Sabrina. I also watched 10 Things I Hate About You recently because Heath Ledger. What have you been watching? Any suggestions?

February is the month of LOVE and because I LOVE you, I've got some goodies for you below. Do you do anything special for Valentine's Day? What about for Leap Day? (Are there any traditions associated with that? Proposals in Ireland? Or is that just my favorite Chick Flick?)


1. All Feb One Loan Soul is 0.99 . Catch up on this beloved dark urban fantasy now before Three Broke Souls releases next month.) Check out the giveaways on my Facebook page & in my reader group.

1.5 OLS is also up for Book of the Month at Read Freely. Please go vote!

2. There's a new newsletter subscriber free novella coming that takes place in the #LoanSoul world releasing VALENTINE'S DAY.

3. This fabulous new cover by Covers by Christian on my upper YA Dystopian trilogy is up for Cover of the Month. If you head on over and vote for it, I'd so appreciate it! NOW CLOSED -- thanks to all who voted.

HAPPY NEW DECADE! New month, new year, new decade. Time to reflect and plan. Do you have a resolution? Mine: read more (duh), gym more (double duh), and set better limits/boundaries (mental health is important! I want far fewer -- or better yet 0 -- breakdowns than last year).

In the last decade, I became an author, went to a book con, won a few awards, released a bestseller, and finished my first trilogy. This next decade, I aim to finish several more series -- I can think of 4 at least (Loan Soul, Fae Portal Protector, Trials of a Tree Nymph and a secret one), find my genre footing with mythological supernatural suspense/urban fantasy, release audiobooks, write co-authored series, and attend several more book conventions around the US if not the world. Fingers crossed!

January is the last month for a few deals and giveaways:

1. One Loan Soul is $0.99 (globally) and FREE on Kindle Unlimited. It was also recently voted the 12th BEST INDIE BOOK OF 2019. Three Broke Souls, Book 3, is out next month pre-order for a discount -- releasing next month.

2. There's a new newsletter subscriber free novella coming that takes place in the #LoanSoul world releasing this month. Sign up at to get access to The Quick Dead Fox.

3. The Climatic Climacteric trilogy just got a whole new EPIC look! Huge thanks to the amazing work of Covers by Christian. All 3 books are on sale on ALL retailers until January 31st! Go grab your copies of this international bestseller and 14th Best Indie Book of 2018 now! There's a giveaway here.

4. The last few #GiftItForward Giveaways are going up in my reader group on Facebook -- winner picks the prize from my *signed paperbacks* bookshelf (see photo) AND to whom I send it (yourself or as a surprise for a friend/family member)!

5. NOW onto the links to all the January freebies and deals (or click the images below):

Hope you had a nice holiday season. And happy New Year to you and yours! What are you most looking forward to in 2020? Any book releases you're anxiously awaiting? What was your favorite/biggest accomplishment in 2019 or the last decade? What are your aspiration for the next year and decade?

Happy reading and stay curious! Love and snuggles, ~L.B. xx
