April 2022 READ THIS! Selection
The READ THIS! Selection for April 2022 is: 

Dead Woman's Pond
Elle E. Ire

Gini's Take: A gritty mystery based on a real place and a real killer lake, with an overlay of the supernatural and a strong F/F romance.

About the Author: Elle E. Ire writes science fiction and urban fantasy novels featuring kickass women who fall in love with each other. Current publications include VICIOUS CIRCLE (2015/2020), the STORM FRONTS trilogy: THREADBARE (2019), PATCHWORK (2020), and WOVEN (2020), DEAD WOMAN'S POND (2021), DEAD WOMAN'S REVENGE (2022), and REEL TO REAL LOVE (2021).

When she isn’t writing, Elle enjoys getting into her characters’ minds by taking shooting lessons, participating in interactive theatrical experiences, paying to be kidnapped “just for the fun and feel of it,” and attempting numerous escape rooms.
May's READ THIS! Selection

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.

P.S. I am definitely heading towards the end game. I realize that's vague, but it means that I think we'll be shouting "hurrah" somewhere in the nearish term. Digits crossed, at any rate...
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
