SORA’S QUEST by T.L. Shreffler #BookReview #EpicFantasy

Another of the many books I read while laid up following my recent hip replacement – which, by the way is going very well. I’m now 3 months post op and aside from pulling a muscle (too enthusiastic with my PT exercises, surprise, surprise), it’s pretty much fixed. 4 months is the magic number for […]

#BookReview THE RAVEN AND THE DOVE by Kaitlyn Davis #epicfantasy #YAfantasy

Just a review this week – life has taken a sideways slip so I’m taking the chance to catch up by posting a review from one of the many books I read earlier this year. The Raven and the Dove by Kaitlyn Davis My rating: 4 of 5 stars Described as an ‘epic fantasy retelling […]

#BookReview Scales and Sensibility by Stephanie Burgis #RegencyFantasy

I was in the mood for something light and fluffy, and this one caught my eye. According to the reviews, it isn’t to everyone’s taste, but I thoroughly enjoyed it – for me, it did precisely what it says on the tin. Blurb: Sensible, practical Elinor Tregarth really did plan to be the model poor […]

‘PUTTING THE FACT IN #FANTASY’ pre-order, and a mini blog break.

I’m going to cover the title subjects in the opposite order. I have kept this meme for years, knowing one day it would be totally relevant – and the time is finally here! On Wednesday, all being well, I shall have a new hip. The first of two, you understand, but after 7 years of […]

#BookReview – The Sacrifice (The Fey #1) by Kristine Kathryn Rusch #fantasy #elves

Still catching up… Here’s my review of another one I read this winter. I’m a huge fan of Kris Rusch’s writing blog, and in awe of her specialised knowledge of the publishing industry, but this is the first of her novels I’ve tried. I think I might have to try a different series. The Sacrifice […]

#BookReview – STATE OF GRACE by John R. Phythyon #fantasy

I’ve had this one on my Kindle for years (oh dear, that TBR list…) and decided I felt in the mood to catch up on some of the books I’d taken note of as I’d found their blurbs particularly intriguing. You’ll see why this snagged my attention, considering my own series tagline: ‘James Bond meets […]

#BookReview TO KILL A FEA by Jamie A. Waters #fantasy

Quick post today as we have a lot going on just now, sorting and moving stuff into the new build because – yes! It’s finished! Well, mostly. We still have stuff to do inside, but it’s marvellous already to be in it, we almost feel like we have a whole new house. For my next […]

#BookBubFeaturedDeal – sharing my figures

I always like reading about other people’s experiences with marketing, and as a result I’ve always been happy to share figures from my biggest sale of the year. Christmas seems to be bumper sale time for me, so I regularly organise a bunch of promos, even if I don’t get a BookBub Featured Deal. I […]
