More Yapping!

That's right, more yapping from me and other awesome authors over at ConTinual.

So head over and watch and have some fun along with the rest of us at ConTinual!

It's Alive!

Well, the ebook version is. Due to supply chain issues (really, get used to hearing that phrase for the foreseeable future from pretty much everyone) the physical copies of The Reinvented Heart, featuring "Go Where the Heart Takes You" by moi writing as Anita Ensal, won't be arriving until late in May, so you have plenty of time to pre-order (hint, hint). But the ebook is live right now, so if you eread, grab your copy today!
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 next READ THIS! selection, 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 all y'all on the flip side!

Love, Gini
