Summer is coming! (Winter for the Southern Hemisphere.) Most of us have had a few hot days already. This weekend Arizona is going to be having quite a heatwave. Stay inside the cool air, watch out for your pets, and if you’re mystery readers, I have put my trio of Cin Fin-Lathen Mysteries on countdown for you. Starting Friday, you will be able to get this set of Kindle books for $0.99 (£0.99 in the UK). Hurry, because they will rise to $2.99 (£1.99 in the UK) starting on Monday for the rest of the week.Read More
Happy Friday! It’s my turn to put together some book recommendations. Fortunately for me, I have a few readers who are helping me out. Before I started writing full-time, I was a voracious reader, but these days, my time is spent writing, and alas, the books I have yet to read are stacking up! You see, I’m very careful about not picking up ideas (consciously or subconsciously) from other writers so I avoid reading in my genre. I do read, but I keep to areas that don’t cross over into the paranormal world.Read More
Hello everyone, Aaron The WebGuy here today to showcase some book series to binge read upon while waiting for Alexie Aaron's next book. The Beta Reader is a machine and he cranks out a book in under half a day a lot of the time, so naturally I am here to provide some links to some of his new reads. In fact, we did this before so here is the link the Binge Reading with the Beta Reader 1. Once again, The Beta Reader has the goods, and if you like Alexie Aaron's works he thinks some of these books might tickle your fancy. Most of these books leaning toward the supernatural and witchcraft or sorcery, although he seems to be dancing with the subject of angels and demons a lot lately as well. Links are a simple click away and I'll include the blurb from Amazon under each one. Without further ado here is The Beta Reader's new reads for those with a desire to sink their teeth into some new novels.Read More
Hi everyone, I'm the Beta Reader, and I am writing today about a subject very dear to me. Since I am eagerly awaiting the final draft of the new Haunted Series novel The Old House, I thought I could help pass the time by recommending some other novels I enjoy. I do have a passion for reading, and while I read most every genre of book, I decided to focus my attentions on subjects akin to Alexie Aaron's works. This brief list will focus on paranormal stories, written by female authors, that feature a strong female protagonist. I've read more than fifty books just in the past two months alone, so I picked a very specific topic in order to narrow the list down a bit. And so, here are some of my favorite recent reads with the themes of Witches, Sorcery, and Magic.
I'm including links to the authors' amazon pages, so you can look over their novels and the synopses for each. Under these links, I will tell you my brief thoughts about each one.Read More
Binge reading… Much the same as Binge eating but you don’t put on any pounds. Also the books that are the biggest treat have no calories, yet they nourish you. I’m a binge reader. My excuse is, that when I’m writing I don’t read. So I jam as much reading into the time I take off as possible. Series fiction is ideal for bingers like me and the Bliss Cottage crew. So we all brought together our favorites with links provided to take you to amazon.Read More
