WHOA! I blinked and my vision turned orange. How did it become October already?
Did you know October is National Book Month?! It's also #TeenTober, so pull out any YA books you've been wanting to read.
More importantly, it's time to "fall" into all things Autumn.
I love autumn! Pumpkins, pumpkin spice, apple cider, Halloween, witches, leaves, black/gothic aesthetic, comfy sweaters, and I like thrills and spooks.
In fact, I think it's a great season for bookworms. I made a video about the reasons why:
(Or see it on my TikTok, Instagram, and/or Facebook)
But oh boy, I wasn't ready for the final quarter of 2021 yet. How about you? I think THAT is the scariest thing right now.
But there are good things happening in the last few months! Check it out...
In Case You Missed It...
DIVE IN to the NEW HDPU PREQUEL!
Dive in to the BRAND NEW Harbingers of Death prequel LeAnn Mason and I included in Fiction Atlas Press's From the Deep anthology, which released on September 29.
IF YOU PREORDERED ON AMAZON: Due to a snafu, I'm afraid Amazon lost our preorders, so you'll have to order this book again. BUT we dropped the price to $0.99!
Tales of the sea, hidden cities, fierce pirates, and magical creatures...
Join the authors of From The Deep as they plunge into the mysterious below to explore the wonders, horrors, and curiosities of the sea. Mermaids, ancient underwater cities, sea gods, creatures of legend, pirates, and more await you inside this multi-author collection!
Our story, Death Song, is about Jessica, a siren, and Stone, a seafaring hellhound, both of whom need a little escape from work (don't we all). In their case though, work is death.
Help us share our release on any social media page or by email or text, post a screenshot on Facebook (or email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org) and you'll be entered to win a pair of reusable stainless steel mermaid colored straws that help save the turtles (U.S. only; international will get a gift card)! (Bonus entry: post a pic of your copy of the book.)
