February's READ THIS! Book of the Month and More!

Happy February!

Well, we made it through January, yet another tough month in the Sucking 20's. But we're here, and that's a win as far as I'm concerned.

We've got another new, and great, READ THIS! author for all y'all to get to know, plus more things and a cool announcement, so let's get to it!


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!

February 2022 READ THIS! Selection

The READ THIS! Selection for February 2022 is: 

My Luck
Twisted Luck Book 1
By Mel Todd

Gini's Take: The first book in the Twisted Luck series, an Urban Fantasy you didn't know you needed. A found family, non-romantic urban fantasy, with a smattering of magical beasties.

About the Author: Tired of stories that didn't fill her needs, Mel Todd decided to share the weird worlds that occupy her mind. Action, magic, sci-fi, and more, her stories have it all. You can follow her on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/badashbooks/) and also sign up for her newsletter and follow her blog at https://www.badashpublishing.com. Author of over 35 stories, her newest series, Twisted Luck, is catching fire.
February 2022 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!

The third Thursday of every month will be READ THIS! Author Q&A time. The event will be held utilizing Discord, and the invitation to Gini's READ THIS! room will come out in the week prior to the chat.

And that's not all! Near the end of each Q&A session, we'll be doing a raffle and one lucky winner will get a copy of the next month's READ THIS! selection! (You must be present in the Q&A to win. Physical book prizes will be U.S. only. Ebook prizes will be worldwide.)
February's READ THIS! author Q&A with Mel Todd will be on
Thursday, February 17, 2022
from 9pm-10pm Eastern.

Access to Discord is available worldwide, and everyone is invited to attend!
March's READ THIS! Selection

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

The READ THIS! Selection for March 2022 is: 

Gaslight & Grimm: Steampunk Faerie Tales
Featuring "The Clockwork Nightingale"
By Jean Marie Ward

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 on Version 5 of the rewrite process. Does every book take me this long? No. Will all the others in the series take this long? Likely no. Life has tossed a lot at me and mine and that's made some things a struggle, but...

Kitty is always with me, and she's not going to let the bad things win, in any universe.

So...Watch this space for more updates as I have them. And keep those digits crossed for the hope that my shouting "the end!" comes sooner as opposed to later.
New Humor!

So, my birthday was last month and in honor of, but not about it, I have a new humor piece up over at TG Geeks. Give it a read, and hopefully it'll give you a chuckle.

More Yapping!

That's right, more yapping from me and other awesome authors over at ConTinual. The latest offering is Hot Off the Press #64, wherein I get to share about a new release that I'm relieved is finally available. So head over and watch and check out a whole bunch of cool new things to read, and have some fun along with the rest of us at ConTinual!

And don't miss these other cool panels I've run the yap on:
Breaking Down the Genres
Economics in World Building
Horror and Romance
Sherlockian Mystery
Sherlock Returns
Christmas in July Holiday Short Reads
Hot off the Press #54
Characters in the Public Domain

There's a whole lot more over at the ConTinual YouTube page, so browse around and get your panel fixes in!

Soooo...Some of you may have been aware that I've talked about a super secret project that I couldn't name for the past few months. Well, now I can.

I'm one of the authors in the new anthology, Predator: Eyes of the Demon
featuring "Cannon Fodder" by moi, coming from Titan Books on June 21, 2022!

Yes, it's pretty darned exciting and I'm pretty darned excited. So, get those pre-orders in, because this anthology is going to be very cool and very good.

So many bookie wookies, so much time to catch up on all of them while waiting for Aliens Like Us and the next READ THIS! selection. Check out my Bookstore and Bibliography for all the things!
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
