Review: Moribund (Circuit Fae #1) by Genevieve Iseult Eldredge

Disclaimer: I consider the author a friend; however, I purchased a hardcopy version of this book for full price. For all that I read urban fantasy and LGBT fiction, it surprises me that this is my first F/F urban fantasy — and a young adult (YA) novel, at that. But if a book had toContinue reading “Review: Moribund (Circuit Fae #1) by Genevieve Iseult Eldredge”

Book Spotlight & Review: Rights of Use (Black Book Project #1) by Shannon Eichorn

Today, I’m happy to help celebrate the birthday of a book I’ve been looking forward to for literally years, ever since the author and I met at a a convention and found kindred souls in our shared delight over Stargate, NASA, writing, and speculative fiction. Rights of Use brings me back to my teenage years, whenContinue reading “Book Spotlight & Review: Rights of Use (Black Book Project #1) by Shannon Eichorn”

Review: In a Suspect Universe by Albert Wendland

Disclaimer: Dr. Wendland was a professor at the graduate program I attended, and he is now a friend and colleague; however, I purchased an advanced-release hardcopy of this novel for full price. I read Wendland’s first book in this world, The Man Who Loved Alien Landscapes, in one evening. I wish I could have done theContinue reading “Review: In a Suspect Universe by Albert Wendland”

Review: Perfect Day by Sally Malcolm

Disclaimer: I received a free electronic copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Having never read the original Austen novel, Persuasion, this book is based on, I was a bit tentative when Malcolm reached out to me and asked for a review. However, she knew that I’ve been onContinue reading “Review: Perfect Day by Sally Malcolm”

Book Spotlight & Review: Red and Black by Nancy O’Toole Meservier

Next Monday is a book birthday for one of my fellow bloggers at Speculative Chic, but I couldn’t wait any longer! I was thrilled to receive an advanced electronic copy of this debut novel. This was a great, fun read that will appeal to adult and young adult readers alike, with just enough superhero anticsContinue reading “Book Spotlight & Review: Red and Black by Nancy O’Toole Meservier”

Review: A Gentleman Never Keeps Score (Seducing the Sedgwicks #2) by Cat Sebastian

I guess I’m a bit lucky coming to this book as a reader who doesn’t have a lot of experience with “Regency” romances. To me, this is merely an unexpected romance set in an historical era, so I was a lot more forgiving of aspects of the plot that seemed to bother other readers basedContinue reading “Review: A Gentleman Never Keeps Score (Seducing the Sedgwicks #2) by Cat Sebastian”

Author Interview with Rachell Nichole

The publishing industry can be a roller coaster, and often, its up to authors to make the most of it. To help Rachell Nichole ride the high of her latest release, I came up with some fun and sexy questions that highlight A Love Affair in Las Vegas. ABOUT THE BOOK Dawn Jansen has only everContinue reading “Author Interview with Rachell Nichole”

Review: The Boogeyman’s Intern by Matt Betts

Disclaimer: The author is a friend, and I reviewed this novel as part of the publication process. I look forward to purchasing a hardcopy version of my own. This was a weird book set in an even weirder landscape. Betts proves that the supernatural creatures created as part of all human cultures are very similarContinue reading “Review: The Boogeyman’s Intern by Matt Betts”

Review: Dead Indian Wars (Damnation #2) by Clark Casey

Disclaimer: I received a free ebook from the author via Netgalley. This fast-paced sequel to Dawn in Damnation picks up mere moments after the first book ends. Like the first installment, it’s an easy read that flows well; every chapter brings a new character, a new incident, or a new puzzle. The narrator Tom continues toContinue reading “Review: Dead Indian Wars (Damnation #2) by Clark Casey”

Review: Syzygy by J.K. Ullrich

Disclaimer: I received an electronic version of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. Even though the majority of the characters, including the two point of view characters, in this book are teenagers, this never feels like a young adult novel. Instead, it’s an intriguing look at two opposed post-apocalyptic societiesContinue reading “Review: Syzygy by J.K. Ullrich”
