June's READ THIS! Selection & More!

Happy June!

It's the official start of summer, so hopefully everyone has some kind of fun plan for the summertime, even if it's just hanging out reading a book without interruption. I mean, that's the best, right? Of course right.

Speaking of right, Father's Day is right around the corner, so wishing a wonderful day full of love and relaxation to all the dads, stepdads, foster dads, uncles, cousins, granddads, and all those out there doing the dad role (including all the gals who fill in there, too) -- you're vital to the lives you touch, so thank you for all that you do. 

We have June's READ THIS! Book of the Month as well as other cool stuff, so read on for all the things!


A Book Club by Moi for All Y'all

Welcome to READ THIS! A Book Club by Gini Koch. This is my chance to introduce you to some great authors that I love and know you will, too.

Every month I'll spotlight a book and, even better...every month I'll host a live discussion with the author, that all y'all can join! I know, it's too happy to be true, but true it is!

June 2021 READ THIS! Selection

The READ THIS! Selection for June 2021 is: 

The Feral Children
By David Simpson

Gini's Take: The first spinoff to the massively successful Zombie Road series, where children and zoo animals have to learn to survive an apocalypse together. “Don’t threaten the children when the wolves are near.” 

About the Author: David Simpson is a multi award-winning writer with 13 number one best sellers on Amazon. His groundbreaking Zombie Road series has been optioned to be developed into a TV series. Reach him at his Amazon Author Page.
June 2021 READ THIS! Author Q&A
So, you've read the READ THIS! selection and you want to share what you thought with the author, hang out with them and Gini, and generally talk books for an hour. Well, guess what? You can!

July's READ THIS! Selection

And Remember: One Lucky Q&A Participant can win it early!

The READ THIS! Selection for July 2021 is: 

Uncanny Magazine #40 "Proof by Induction"
By Jose Pablo Iriarte

Because I get asked this daily (often multiple times daily)...

Yes, Aliens Like Us IS coming, but...

No, Aliens Like Us still isn't ready for Prime Time, but...

I'm using the Virus Troubles to git 'er dun, so...

Fear not, Kitty & Company will be back sooner than you think...

I promise.

P.S. Despite what you'd think, pre-orders are still mattering a whole lot, so even though it SAYS it's coming in 2050 or 3000 or something, do your girl a solid and pre-order this book as soon as the various retailers allow it, please and thank you!

P.P.S. The book isn't available for pre-order in most places at the moment, because it's not back on DAW's schedule yet (because, well, see above). This is the (constant) reminder that, when it IS available, it'll help a LOT if you pre-order it. 

P.P.P.S. I think I'm in the last quarter of the book, which is exciting in many ways. It's not a promise, but I have hopes of gitten 'er dun very soon now.
That's right, it's a new anthology hoping to come to life! If this funds, I'll be writing the prequel story to my New West series. Find out how The Darkening happened from those who were there live...though they may not make it through the experience...

And speaking of experiences, if you've ever wanted to be in one of my stories, now is the time. I'm offering several tuckerizations -- aka your name or your name of choice in lights, so to speak, as a character in the story (details on the Kickstarter page) -- that will allow you to be in the story. Don't delay, tuckers tend to go fast.

There are lots of cool reward levels, so don't miss out, get in on the Silence in the City Kickstarter today!
Don't forget to pre-order the cool Derelict anthology, featuring my story "Saving Sallie Ruth" written as Anita Ensal. The anthology is available for pre-order on Amazon, and special pre-orders are available at Zombies Need Brains. So don't delay, pre-order today!
The Superstions: Tales from the Mountains anthology is live and that means it's time to get your copies now! Featuring "Coyote and the Doorway Between the Worlds" by moi writing as A.E. Stanton.

And, if you've already gotten it, please remember that reviews help everyone, hint, hint. 

That's it for today but, never fear, another Update, including the Discord Q&A chat invitation, will be arriving in a couple of weeks!

In the meantime, stay safe and healthy, remember we're all in this together, be kind to one another, give love and support to all those who are on the front lines in any capacity, and let's be readers out there. Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!

Love, Gini
