It's Time for March's READ THIS! Book of the Month!

Happy March!

Well, February sure flew by, didn't it? Hoping everyone is having as good a first quarter of this year as possible. The Sucking 20's are really trying very hard to make us all miss 2019 even more, but we shall persevere and make it through as best we can. After all, that's why we read (and write), isn't it?

Speaking of reading, we've got another great READ THIS! selection for this month. And yes, I'm aware that the Q&A is going to fall on St. Patrick's Day. But, if you're not going out (and, these days, it seems a lot safer staying in), join us for what should be a very fun discussion (that may include some information all y'all are most interested in). So let's get right to it, shall we? We shall!


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!

March 2022 READ THIS! Selection

The READ THIS! Selection for March 2022 is: 

Gaslight & Grimm:
Steampunk Faerie Tales

Featuring "The Clockwork Nightingale"
By Jean Marie Ward

Gini's Take: A great Old West steampunk tale, with a very special heroine, a man who may or may not be a hero, and a villain you can truly hate.

About the Author: Jean Marie Ward writes fiction, nonfiction, and everything in between. Her credits include a multi-award nominated novel, numerous short stories, and two popular art books. The former editor of CrescentBlues.com, she is a frequent contributor to Galaxy’s Edge magazine and ConTinual, the convention that never ends. Learn more at JeanMarieWard.com
March 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.)
March's READ THIS! author Q&A with Jean Marie Ward will be on
Thursday, March 17, 2022
from 9pm-10pm Eastern.

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

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

The READ THIS! Selection for April 2022 is: 

Dead Woman's Pond
Nearly Departed: Book 1
By Elle E. Ire

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.

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
