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

Alliance Rising
The Martian Alliance Chronicles 1-3
Gini Koch

Gini's Take: The galaxy hasn't been the same since the Diamante Families took over...

The Martian Alliance works in secret. Led by beings with very personal grudges against the Diamante Families, the Alliance strike force scams, cons, steals, and fights its way throughout the planets, gathering credits and allies under cover and in a ship whose real name is only know to its crew.

About the Author: It's me! But in case you haven't read my most recent bio, here you go!

Gini Koch started writing in the American Southwest as something to do in between staring at pictures of good-looking leading men, but now sweats out the words, both literally and figuratively, in Hotlanta and dreams of dry heat. 

She’s best known for her award-winning Alien/Katherine “Kitty” Katt series from DAW Books, which started with Touched by an Alien and has sixteen books out currently, with seventeen through twenty on the way. 

Gini’s made the most of multiple personality disorder by writing under a variety of other pen names as well, including G.J. Koch (the Alexander Outland series), Anita Ensal, Jemma Chase, A.E. Stanton (the New West Series and the Legend of Belladonna series), and J.C. Koch, all with stories featured in excellent anthologies, available now and upcoming. No matter what length – from science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, space opera, urban fantasy, horror, mystery, thriller, dystopian, Westerns, romantic suspense, and more – if it’s genre, she writes it. 

She’s an avid follower of pop culture, comics, and anything and everything animated. Reach her via:

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

The READ THIS! Selection for January 2023 is: 


The Middling Affliction
The Conradverse Chronicles Book 1
By Alex Shvarstman


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...

P.P.S. Watch this space, I'm hoping to share happy news soon.
Speaking of things to read, check out this nifty Literature Map that identifies authors who are similar (at least somewhat) to each other. I have no idea how accurate this is, but I was pretty thrilled to find myself there, surrounded by a lot of awesome authors! So check it out and see who you might have missed but are also likely to enjoy reading!

Speaking of more things to read, Unidentified Funny Objects 9, featuring "Sgt. Yeti" by moi, has released! Don't delay, get your copy today!

Read Out Loud!

Do you have your copy of the Touched by an Alien audiobook yet? If not, don't wait! Grab yours today! If you do, remember that books and audiobooks make great gifts! (Hint, hint.)

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 details for the first READ THIS! selection of the new year, 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, have wonderful, joyful, and safe holidays filled with love and happiness, 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
