This is a book promo post! There are some new releases I’d like to bring your attention to. If you’re looking for reading material, then this is the post for you.
Some of my favorite authors, both their work and themselves, are here today. It’s a good day for a promo. (And a small reminder here: if you purchase anything through these links, it gets me a little commission. Nice to keep the blog lights on, but costs you nothing. Thanks!)
Jim Curtis has a new one out – April Fool – it’s not a novel, but does it matter with a good story?
Sean ‘Mac’ McCampbell just wants to keep his head down, avoid the riots, and finish his Linguistics PhD before his GI Bill runs out. But when the professors are promoting insurrection and the cops won’t contain the violence, Mac finds trouble won’t leave the people and places he loves alone.
Alma Boykin has a new Familiars book out! Whee! Knowingly Familiar is part of a series, so you may want to begin at the beginning if you haven’t been reading along with me.
When Ghosts Walk . . .
Something moves. A Mesopotamian curse sends ripples through the magical community of Riverton. Mages André and Lelia Lestrang find themselves fighting ghosts from their past. The battle draws them closer to Master Saldovado and the clans, closer perhaps than Lelia’s heart dares to go. How long before Patrick Lee and Riverton’s other magic users demand answers about the clans? The Familiars are keeping the secret. For now.
James Young continues his sweeping alternate history epic of the war between nations that in our timeline, was called the Pacific Theater of WWII, with Against the Tide Imperial.

July 1943. When the United Kingdom was torn asunder under a hail of German firebombs and nerve gas, the distant outpost of Ceylon was an afterthought for both Allies and Axis. Now, one year after King George VI’s death, the small island off of India becomes center stage for a titanic confrontation.
The Ever-delightful Pam Uphoff has a standalone novel with Double Dragons. Check it out! And then dip into her sprawling Wine of the Gods series, if you dare…
Lieutenant Scarlet Magana was trained as ship’s crew, but it’s a good thing she also had dirt-side scouting training . . .
A distant planet. A damaged hyperspace colony ship. Lieutenant Magana and the rest of the crew discover that not only are they not the first arrivals . . . they may well be the third.
And then there are the dragons . . . and a serial killer.
J.M. Anjewierden has a new fantasy out, Keepers of the Wind.
For a thousand years the Alven Empire stamped out all other religions in favor of their false gods.
But the Alven dug too deep, releasing the demons of earth, terrible monsters they cannot hope to fight.
All that can stand against them is Fleur and the other priestesses.
