I am participating in The Book Nymph’s May Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance Fair with Book of Shadows featured among many other great books you should check out. I’m looking forward to reading some of them myself, which I’d already bought prior to the fair because they sounded great in whatever E-mail newsletter I first heard of them in. (Those daily e-book newsletters are my main source of finding intriguing new books now.) A couple of those titles are The Witches of Dark Root and Swords & Stilettos. I can’t wait to read those. Right now I’m reading Winter’s Curse: Season of the Witch Book One by April Wood, which is proving to be rather fast-paced and exciting.
The landing page for the book fair is: https://thebooknymphpr.com/may-urban-fantasy-paranormal-romance-book-fair/
There’s also a giveaway! You can enter to win a Kindle HD and a $50 Amazon Gift Card. Check it out: https://thebooknymphpr.com/giveaways/may-urban-fantasyparanormal-romance-kindle-cash-giveaway/
Speaking of giveaways, I’m continuing to give away copies of Book of Shadows via #instafreebie: https://www.instafreebie.com/free/nuwSw
You can also grab Reckoning Daze for free from them: https://www.instafreebie.com/free/c9EdE
Reckoning Daze will always be free, something they call a “book magnet” in the self-publishing world. A book you give away for free to introduce people to your writing. Usually, if someone will be writing a series they’ll make that their free book and release that first, but Reckoning Daze was ready first so I went with that one. But now that I’m onto Book of Shadows, which is a series, I figured I should give that away, too, to get people interested and, hopefully, hooked on my characters and their spells that often have unintended side-effects.
Here’s the blurb for Reckoning Daze:
“An actress is always a starving artist,” so says Lindsay Harmon-Foster, a talented but struggling Los Angeles actress in Michael Beaulieu’s gripping debut novel Reckoning Daze.
Lindsay, 19, a former star of a critically acclaimed but canceled series, is now doing a pilot that might prove to be the role of a lifetime, but her anorexia and other habits could kill her before she’s cast for the full series. Although she has long been self-destructive, she’s never been more so than now and there may be casualties. Aside from losing the show she loved, she thought she had found her soulmate in a rising music star named Jesse, but he committed suicide and she blames herself. Will she land the new series and allow herself to find love again with a handsome actor named Marc or will addictions – and suppressed family secrets – be the death of her?
While Lindsay’s demons are portrayed with unflinching honesty, the way she views Los Angeles and the television business is often comical. If you like Bret Easton Ellis and Chuck Palahniuk, you’ll find Reckoning Daze’s blend of serious drama and satire to be a perfect blend of laughs and suspense. Get it today and find out if Lindsay gets the show and/or the boy or neither.
And here’s the blurb for Book of Shadows:
What would you do if you found your late grandmother’s book of shadows – a witch’s spell book and journal – and learned that you’re a natural born witch? You’d try one of the spells, of course, and that’s exactly what 16 year old Emma McGlinchey does. To her amazement, the candle lighting spell she tries actually works. Naturally, she has to recruit best friends Lia and Shar into starting a coven. Soon the girls cast a spell to make everyone like them at the Catholic high school they’re being forced to attend for the first time. Unfortunately, it fails to make an impression on a group of zealots who set about bullying Lia and Shar for being an openly lesbian couple. The girls attempt to deal with this using other spells, but things only escalate. Will they finally be able to set things right or will something catastrophic happen? Read Emma’s own Book of Shadows and find out in this suspenseful urban fantasy today.
