It's A Fast Month, Isn't It?

Valentine's Day is upon us (tomorrow) and then this month's READ THIS! Author Q&A, then President's Day, then Ash Wednesday for those who partake, and then blink and the month is gone. 

But before the month is over we have the READ THIS! Author Q&A ahead of us. So let's get to it, shall we? We shall!

Harsh Reality
By Elle E. Ire

Gini's Take: A cool time travel story that takes on reality TV, the Old West, and mythology, with a steamy F/F romance and a bang-up ending.

About the Author: Elle Ire is the author of nine published novels from DSP Publications in the genres of sapphic paranormal and science fiction. THREADBARE is the recipient of two gold Royal Palm Literary Awards from the Florida Writers Association. DEAD WOMAN'S POND earned a Goldie Award from the Golden Crown Literary Society, a gold Royal Palm Literary Award, and was first runner-up for Florida Writers Association's Book of the Year. REEL TO REAL LOVE was a Goldie Award finalist and a Stonewall Award nominee.
March's READ THIS! Selection

Even Villains Fall in Love
By Liana Brooks


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 Valentine's Day, Astra Publishing House has a DAW Spicy SFF Sampler going, featuring Touched by an Alien along with other cool books. Check out all the excerpts and snuggle up with your true love -- reading.

Read Out Loud!

Do you have your copy of the Touched by an Alien audiobook yet? If not, don't wait! Grab yours today!
