New Releases in #SciFi #Fantasy and Paranormal Romance for MARCH 2

AUDIOBOOKS: I was asked to try something new, and to indicate if these are available as audiobooks. I’m putting AB at the end of the buy links to indicate Audiobook if there is one and the buy link goes to Amazon but I don’t have time to chase down and list the other platforms’ audiobook buy links. (I have to have enough time to write my own novels.) We’ll see if this is useful to readers?

As always, I recommend sampling before you buy! I have not read most of the new releases listed (although I always end up one-clicking a bunch as I prepare these posts LOL). 



Azar has taken over Fort Dallas. He rules with complete authority, and everyone bows down to him.
Everyone except one woman. Melina, the fort’s medic. No matter what he offers, she refuses to give in. A good man would know to stop asking. Unfortunately for Melina, Azar is not a good man.

Is his heart the mirror she needs to finally see her true beauty? A terrible accident left Eliza with a troubled heart and an unsightly scar. No Terran man wants a woman with a disfigured face, no matter how kind or hardworking. So when Eliza receives the opportunity to adopt a baby and move to a remote frontier moon, she jumps at the chance. She falls in love with baby Clementine the moment she holds the little one in her arms. But her feelings for Clem’s tall, dark and handsome guard are much more complicated. Troy’s active duty as a member of the elite Invicta dragon force ended the day he found out he was assigned to protect an Imberian baby. The tiny creature is helpless, smelly, sticky, and the absolute light of his life – though he doesn’t like to say so in so many words. After all, a brutal dragon warrior would never make a fool of himself over a small whelp. But the moment he lays eyes on Clementine’s new adoptive mother, he knows he is in a whole new world of trouble. He can’t stop thinking about the small, fierce Terran. But his dedication to duty has him desperate to keep his thoughts, and his hands, to himself. When a local man comes to court Eliza, she feels compelled to consider his suit. After all, what other prospects does she have? But before she can answer, a neighbor asks for help in the form of a wagon trip all the way out to the mines and back. Many ships have lost their navigations systems and wrecked in Han-2’s Bermuda Triangle-like atmosphere, and the lush planet is now littered with hundreds of wrecked crafts, grown through with trees and occupied by animals. And the animals aren’t the only things lurking. But Eliza’s got a big dragon warrior with her. What could possibly go wrong?

Thick, silky and purrs for hours…Always the bridesmaid, but never the bride. That’s what I’m known for amongst my large group of friends and family.

INTO THE LIGHT (OUT OF THE DARK BOOK 2) by David Weber and Chris Kennedy

VS note: Not a romance but a scifi release of note.

The Shongairi conquered Earth. In mere minutes, half the human race died, and our cities lay in shattered ruins. But the Shongairi didn’t expect the survivors’ tenacity. And, crucially, they didn’t know that Earth harbored two species of intelligent, tool-using bipeds. One of them was us. The other, long-lived and lethal, was hiding in the mountains of eastern Europe, the subject of fantasy and legend. When they emerged and made alliance with humankind, the invading aliens didn’t stand a chance. Now Earth is once again ours. Aided by the advanced tech the aliens left behind, we’re rebuilding as fast as we can. Meanwhile, a select few of our blood-drinking immortals are on their way to the Shongairi homeworld, having commandeered one of the alien starships…the planet-busting kind.

The world has exploded and the farm I’d built with my family was all that I had left of them. With the help of my new boyfriend, Link, can we continue to keep everyone safe while helping them to start over? Farming is going to be the newest commodity, but we weren’t prepared to become an army. Even with all the good will, and sense of community that has grown since the first zombie walked among us, it may have all been for nothing if no one can trust each other. Faced with attacks from other people, there isn’t a much of a chance for survival, but I’ve managed to stay alive this long. I’m not about to let the zombies onto my land or anything other living thing unless I become one of them.                Amazon KU

A female outlaw – I hate the Toth, the cruel aliens who rule our galaxy, and Caspe Tetrone does their dirty work. He is my enemy, and any day I ruin his is a good one. Sure, he’s just saved my life from that crazed alien gladiator who was ten hisecs away from goring me, but…this does not mean I’m grateful. It definitely doesn’t mean I’m hot for his tentacles. An alien pirate – I hate Sienne Dlach, and I want her dead. Which is why, the minute she’s about to be ripped apart, I step in and save her, at much danger and inconvenience to my life and business. It makes sense, though, I swear, because I, uh, you know, it’s a hate-attraction thing. All I want to do is restrain her with my tentacles, shove the tips in every available orifice, and suction cup all her sensitive body parts until she—Look, I really do hate her, but now we’re on the run together from the Toth, engaging in firefights with police ships in space, fighting furry predators planetside, and the thing is… we’re kind of a great team. I’ve never felt anything like this before. Some (idiotic) part of me wants it to be something more than hate sex and near-death escapes, but…Well, that would make me stupid and vulnerable, and those are two things I’ll never be.         Amazon KU


An alien warrior. A reluctant bride. A battle that could destroy them both. Jasper fully believes he’ll never take a bride, but when he wakes up next to Brianna – King Andryssi’s guardian – he learns that the two of them are not only dating, but married. A drunken decision has led to something that Jasper isn’t feeling all that terrible about. A bride? He’s never seen himself as the marrying kind, but he could be. He could see himself doing this. Brianna knows a secret and it’s not exactly the kind of thing that lends itself to abrupt elopements. She’s certain that a hasty divorce is the best bet for moving forward with her life, but Jasper is so very different than she thinks he’s going to be. He’s kind, compassionate, and most of all, he’s protective. She needs that. She’s been on her own for as long as she can remember, but now…Well, now she needs someone to love. When a surprise battle takes them by surprise, Jasper and Brianna are forced to team up to save the king and queen of the planet. If they don’t, they’re going to lose everything – including each other.

ZEC’K – Siobhan’s scent calls me to claim her, but I tell her the same lie I tell everyone else: I’m not interested in a mate. I focus on her delicious creations instead, even though she’s the one I truly crave. I try to stay away, but I cannot. Everything draws me to her, and when I learn of her quest to find her sister, my mouth offers to help before my brain can stop it. I’m a failed hunter, not worthy of a mate, and every moment alone with the tempting female tests my control. She thinks of me as her protector, but if she knew the thoughts I have about her, she’d run the other way. SIOBHAN – everyone is happily settling down in our post-apocalyptic fortress. But I can’t rest yet; I have to get to my sister. It was my last promise to her before communications went dark. Problem is, she lives across the country, and there are miles of bug-filled America between us. When Zec’k, the sexy hunter who delivers and trades for supplies with our little colony, offers to help, I jump on the opportunity. It’s supposed to be an easy trip, but everything that could go wrong does. And now, I’m not sure I’ll survive this mission without falling for my Xarc’n guide.              Amazon KU


The Crown Princess of Zyria was born to wear the crown….but what if she wants more? My life was organised since birth until the carefully constructed plans exploded like a supernova. The lick of flames began when I decided to sacrifice myself for my planet and my people. Abducted into the stars I dreamed of, I have no choice but to embrace the part of me I have always hidden—the fighter, the warrior, and the imperfect, crass woman who doesn’t resemble the impeccable princess I am expected to be. Instead of using my silver tongue to fight my battles, I now hold true weapons, and for the first time since the crown was placed on my head, I feel whole. Evil is flooding the galaxy, and for some reason, destiny has chosen me to stop it. The only problem is, I don’t know how. Luckily, I meet some men along the way who are willing to follow me on this mission. If the king could see me now, draped in leather and wielding pistols and knives rather than wearing ballgowns and reading old scrolls, he would collapse onto his golden throne. Now, I fight my way across the cosmos to try and stop the destruction of everything we know. I was ready to give up my life, my future, and my body, but I never expected to lose my heart along the way. Stars, don’t let me fail now.   Amazon KU


VS Note: Listed in steampunk

A promise made in fire and ice. A promise kept in death and stone. A truth in three, arise the trinity. Home to Gidhera. Here Ascara must prove herself through combat and the strength of her heart and soul. These tests of fire are nothing when compared to the danger she has yet to face. Ancient foes, asleep for generations, rise up from the sea and swarm across the land like a blight of fang and claw. These dark creatures are different now. They have evolved into something bigger, stronger, and more resilient. They bring with them magic of their own. These new powers could render the whole of Gidhera defenseless. Guns and cannons are no match for these dark powers of the deep. To save her people, the clan and her home, Ascara needs a tower and the full power of fire, and three. Without them will bring the destruction of her clan, and all that she holds dear.       Amazon KU


VS note: I used to so love this series but I kinda lost interest around book 8. I do read the new ones occasionally but they’re not autobuy for me. So, it’s on my TBR.

Jonas “Smoke” Harper has watched his brothers find their perfect mates, never imagining he’d actually meet someone who complements every part of him—even the monster that lurks within. But his instant connection with Camellia goes far beyond wanting the intelligent, beautiful, and lethal woman in his bed. They are two parts of a whole, linked to each other and to a larger network that exists everywhere around them. Camellia has lived on her own for a long time, relying on her unique psychic abilities to keep her safe. She knows that Jonas was literally made for her, and that makes their addictive connection more dangerous than a thousand enhanced super soldiers. Once the larger threat looming over them is dealt with she’s going to get far away as fast as she can. Life has taught her that the only one she can truly trust is herself. Jonas can sense Camellia is going to run—and the hunter inside doesn’t want to let go. Not when he knows how good they’ll be together. So he’ll just have to use all of his considerable skills to convince her to stay.

I worked in a grocery store overnight. It was an easy job. Keep the store stocked, survive the boredom of long nights, and help the impossibly large and mysterious man that came in frequently. A man that ended up actually being an alien smuggler. Long story short, I got caught up in his problems and had to flee Earth with him. We hid on a distant space station while we waited for the people chasing him to back off long enough for him to take me home. In the meantime, we had to sell the bananas he had taken from Earth on the black market. That’s right, bananas. I almost blurted out some information better kept secret and he put a hand over my mouth to keep me quiet. In an admittedly immature move, I licked his palm to try and get him to move his hand. Suddenly, his demeanor had changed, his eyes flickering to strange colors when he looked at me. He became overly possessive and defensive about me, and I had a weird feeling that he wanted much more than my company. The strangest thing? I was starting to want more from him, too. The red skin, the horns, the body that could shift to stone, the unnatural heat radiating off of him. Taren seemed like more of a demon than an alien, but I would be lying if I didn’t say he was hot. And Taren was hot, both literally and figuratively. Now, we just have to survive the seedier sections of the sprawling space station and get me back home unscathed. Piece of cake, right? Except, maybe I don’t want to go home.                 Amazon KU


JOCELYN – I’ve identified an herb that acts as birth control for us humans on the alien planet we now call home. The only problem? We’re running out. We need more, and apparently the only place you can get it is one of the most deadly regions on this whole planet – the Death Plains. So I slot myself into a group of warriors travelling there to meet the new Gahn. Except everything falls apart as soon as we reach the Death Plains…[SNIP]…But Razek refuses to travel back to the settlement with me, trapping me in the Death Plains. No matter how much my feelings for him grow, I refuse to be his prisoner. I control my own fate. Even if, around Razek, I can’t control my heart. RAZEK – I have only ever worked to achieve one goal: become the strongest of my tribe and rule as Gahn. I had almost reached this destiny when a strange, loud woman crashes into my life, confounding everything I know. ..[SNIP]… Infuriatingly, she wishes to return to the arms of my enemies. Even worse than that? She wants me to come with her and submit to their alliance. I would rather die than bow my head to the other Gahns. I must convince Jozelyn that I am her mate, her fate, and her future. The only one she needs. Even if it pushes her further from me than ever.  Full blurb on ebook seller page.

PRIMAL CLAIM: A ROUGH ALPHA ROMANCE by Trent Evans and Victoria Johnson

For a high-powered corporate manager like Chastity Sinclair, being claimed by an alpha was unthinkable. She would never allow herself to be mastered in such a humiliating fashion. Until she went into heat and Adam Morgan caught her scent. Then it wasn’t up to her anymore…(more blurb on ebook seller page…)                Amazon KU


Zuvath – It has been a year since the second transport of humans arrived and trust is in short supply. They keep to the settlement, determined to create their own community without the untrustworthy aliens who got them into this mess. All of them except for Ellen. She breaks the rules for me—sneaking out to hunt together, riding our komoth and even hiding away in secret caves where she lets me touch her secret places. I want her but no one knows what we get up to when we’re alone. If we were discovered, it could ruin the fragile peace between our kind. Ellen – I’ve always been a people pleaser and that personality trait extends to Xavren. The barbarians are my friends but so are the humans. They rely on me. They count on my leadership. If I mated with a barbarian, they would see it as the ultimate betrayal to what we’ve accomplished and what we’re striving toward. Zuvath has taught me how to survive here. Always the brooding grump, he’s different with me—correcting my bow form when we hunt, watching me closer than he needs to, saving the best pieces of meat for me. Somehow he’s become more important to me than anyone else…and I can’t tell a soul about it.
When we stumble on a foolish plan by the humans, we’ll use our strong bond to try to prevent disaster.                 Amazon KU

ILL FATED by Athena Storm

Gorgeous and sophisticated aliens don’t fall for simple human village girls. Do they? The only thing I’ve known my entire life is the tiny town of Mountmend. It’s far away from civilization and technology. We’re simple people. We live with nature and we don’t see outsiders that often. That’s why when I see the wounded Myrdion lying in a makeshift litter in the center of town, it feels sort of strange because I feel like I know him. Or rather, it feels as if my heart knows him. This is madness! The moment he’s appeared there’s something familiar and comforting in his eyes. I feel safe with him. Much more safe than with the aggressive and douchey human man from my village who I’m being forced to marry. Except it’s not just safety I’m feeling, is it? Because it’s like even before I saw the alien, I was expecting him. Anticipating him. See it doesn’t matter if I was promised to anyone else. This alien man owns something of mine without even trying that trumps all other promises. What is it? Simple. My heart.        Amazon KU


If this hot alien prince thinks I’m going to play house with him, then he’s in for a surprise. Why? Because I would love to. Not only did Talok rescue me when I crashed into the hidden Kiphian cloud city. But he also stepped in and promised to help two little ones that looked to me for protection. So this alien prince wants to take me in his gorgeous and well muscled arms and put us up in his palace? Then he wants to make sure me and the kids are safe, well clothed, well fed? And after the kids go to bed, he wants to stop treating me like a lady and more like his human pet made to satisfy his needs? Yeah, I’m more than okay with that. And it’s not just because he tells me we’re fated mates. No, it’s because when my ship crashed and I saw his face as he rescued me, I knew that while I had stumbled onto a hidden city, I had done something else too. I had come home.          Amazon KU


In my world, being a beautiful woman gets you put in a cage. There is no hope on Earth. Being a woman who is beautiful is dangerous. Because you’ll end up like me. Put in a cage and traded as a commodity for food and water. Into this comes my savior – an orc named Harok. He raids the outpost I’m held at. Slays all the humans who imprisoned me. And takes me for himself. I don’t know about the state of orcs and humanity. I can’t say that I really care if they’ve come through the portal and destroyed our civilization, to be honest. Because I can only think of one thing. How he came into my cage. Lifted me over his shoulder like I weighed nothing. Liberated me and took me in his arms.
Harok the Great won more than my body that day when he rescued me from the humans who had treated me so cruelly. He won my heart. Forever. And now I just have one mission that matters to me in life. How do I win his?                   Amazon KU

Another Valentines? Hell No! Avoiding it? Definitely. Only she still had to go out there. Still had to go to work, her clients needed her. Still had to eat. Still had to go see her family. And the stuff was everywhere you went. Heart balloons, heart decorations, red roses, flags, bunting, chocolates, cuddly toys! You name it, if it could have a damn heart on it it got it! She was so sick of it. And every time she saw it, just another reminder she was alone. Again. She didn’t need it. Had got off that train years ago. She was settled. Done. No more. And another introduction by her well-meaning sister and niece? Damn it……. So not happening!     He didn’t get it. Why did they insist on celebrating Old Earth customs? This was not Old Earth, and those customs were bordering on ancient. His logic had no answers. Their connection to it was generations ago. And yet, they continued to cling to it. Did they truly need something to remind them of the emotion of love? Of what it means? His optic had no data to go on. Humans were all emotion. Mostly. Their behaviour intrigued him. Did it have a purpose he could not see? He’d come a long way …(more blurb on ebook seller page…)  Amazon KU

LORD OF POPULATION by Elizabeth Stephens

VS Note: A re-release. All 3 books in the series release now so here’s the blurb and link for book one. The Author’s Note: Lord of Population is a relaunched and combined edition of Population and Saltlands, by the same author. The content therein remains the same.

She thinks she can steal from me, the little human. Adorable. I can’t decide what will be more fun – the hunt, or what I will do to her when I catch her. And I will catch her. There is nowhere she can run. Abel was of perfectly sound body and mind when she looted the Other’s corpse. He looked dead. Wait. Did he just smirk up at her? No. Definitely not…Hiding out in an abandoned townhouse, Abel doesn’t expect to hear that same bloodsucking alien come knocking on her door or that, when trouble finds them, he might stand at her back, rather than stab her through it. But when he offers to help her cross the ruined world of Population, Abel knows better than to believe him. Because when he looks at her, it’s with a hunger that seems to go beyond the taste of her blood and, when he asks for payment, he requires the one thing she can’t give up. Her trust.      Amazon KU


VS Note: SciFi Romance adjacent anyway.

Astronaut Regina “Reggie” Hayes wants to be the first woman on the moon—it’s all she’s ever dreamed of. But after a PR disaster, Reggie is off the list for a lunar mission. To rehabilitate her reputation with NASA, she agrees to a different kind of assignment: astronaut “training” with a Hollywood action hero. Jon Leo is a charmer. With credits that include an underperforming sitcom and a campy action flick called Space Dude, his upcoming role in a prestigious movie could prove he’s a star. But Jon isn’t just big muscles and an otherworldly smile—he’s also a total space nerd. He’s pumped about his own personal space camp…until he meets ice-cold Reggie. Although Reggie and Jon are polar opposites, their mutual attraction is undeniable, and it only takes a few weeks in close quarters for them to give in to its magnetic force. Jon is set on convincing Reggie this is a match made in the heavens, but her future is in space, and his is among stars of the Hollywood kind. The odds of successfully launching a real relationship outside the confines of the training base are anything but optimal. Reggie, content with keeping things casual, is forced by a sudden turn of events to confront the possibility of losing Jon forever. Now, she’ll do whatever it takes to win both the man and the moon.           Amazon KU      AB

Together they’re building a true house, one with a growing family of friends and allies that can help them stand against their enemies. And he’s learning to master his magic, to use it as the powerful tool and weapon it should be. But old and new enemies array themselves to take it all away. Lady Veronica, now fully of House Phel, is doing her best to embrace happiness. After all, she has her hands full managing her mercurial and powerful wizard as he navigates taking his place as the head of their house, and with learning her own extraordinary ability. But she fears whatever peace they win won’t last long. When their enemies inevitably strike—including, perhaps, her own father—they must be ready to defend all they hold precious. It doesn’t help that her idealistic husband insists on making foolishly noble decisions that put them at even greater risk, nor that she loves him all the more for it. As Nic and Gabriel struggle to put their household in order, giving ill-advised safe harbor to Nic’s runaway sister and risking their lives to save Gabriel’s sister’s sanity, their enemies draw the noose tighter on their well laid plans. When the unthinkable occurs, it’s up to both of them to trust in the nascent, unknown magic they’ve woven together.

When I decided to “start-over” at 48, that did not, I repeat, did NOT include being turned by a vampire. It was not my idea of a good time. I mean, it was a good time, but the eternal damnation and never die bit is a little hard to swallow. My name is Tabitha Preston. I came to Cougar Creek as a cop and ‘died in the line of duty’ when I went out to that commune of people who call themselves a coven of witches. I’d asked for the transfer. I needed to get away from the mess I’d made of my life. But now I’ll never escape it. As if that isn’t bad enough. This coven of witches is real. Like they really have powers and apparently, they’ve been fighting against an evil power that is trying to make its way through the cemetery. And I’m the one who is supposed to help them do that. Or better yet, do it for them. Now I must do creepy vampire things to help save not just the coven, but humanity. The only problem I’m having is that I can’t decide between saving humanity and the bartender with the golden eyes who seems likely to whisk me away at any moment. Being middle-aged has taught me one thing; you must seize the day, the time, and the guy you have. Because even as a vampire, you never know what the future holds.             Amazon KU

I woke to the soothing sound of a peaceful serenade. Except there’s nothing peaceful about being kidnapped after being sold to the Devils of Sin. This never should have happened, because I did everything right. I accepted the invitation, attended the masquerade in the depth of the forsaken forest, and danced with whomever requested. The longer one remains, the more debt is cleared from the family name, so I danced through the night. I survived to the final note — and let me emphasize the “survive”part — but I’m starting to realize where the real problem lies. I didn’t dance with one suitor…I danced with five Devils, and each immediately laid a claim on me. Joaquin. Talon. Dagger. Croix. Creed. Now here I am, kidnapped and held for ransom by sick men with bigger debts and troubles than my bankrupt family and their dark organization combined, but I’m no damsel in distress. I’m actually stalling. There’s a rumor that the Devils of Sin are dangerous men of royal stature during the day and ruthless monsters at the peak of the night. I want to see them again…to touch and enjoy the illusions that left me panting for more. I’m willing to enter the den of monsters to escape the true demons lurking in the shadows of desperation. All in exchange for my freedom.

When I broke my year-long vow of celibacy for a one night stand with a beautiful, intriguing wolf girl I met in a Las Vegas bar, I thought I’d be chalking it up to just another notch on my bedpost—as much as I’d actually wished it could have been more.

Running from demons isn’t exactly as Laney expected. After saving her Shadowbringer from his fate in Hell, Laney returns to a hot mess on Earth—and she’s at the center of it. With Adne seeking revenge, the Hunters out for blood, and the original Shadowbringer dangling Cas’s soul over both their heads, Laney soon realizes that she needs to take matters into her own hands. Thank God, there is Gladys, who still remembers how to perform a ritual needed, and Avery and Tyler, who fight their own little battle against wicked Luc. And then there’s the thing with her Shadowbringer boyfriend not remembering who he truly is. Laney thought it was difficult to go to Hell and back, but she never considered the ramifications of learning the truth.     Amazon KU


Alpha bear shifter Aspen was ready to begin his new life in the big city. He has a job lined up, a lease signed, and his truck packed. All he has left is to get there. Too bad that’s easier said than done, because his truck picked the middle of nowhere to break down—alongside a bear den’s land of all places. When Aspen seeks permission to spend the night, he plans to keep his head down and just mind his own business and he does, until he hears the scream that changes everything. Omega bear shifter Lucian hates his den. No, that isn’t fair. It isn’t the den he hates as much as the leadership. When the Alpha he had most of his life died, he crossed his fingers the new one would bring their den into this century. He didn’t—the new Alpha is not only old-school, but also cruel. When rumors of an alpha bear seeking refuge until his truck is repaired reach him, Lucien forms a plan. If he can convince the shifter to take him when he leaves, he can escape this horrible life. Sneaking out to find the new bear sounded like a great idea, until Lucian gets caught. His den Alpha is a strike first kind of guy, and strike he does. Lucien knows better than to scream, as it only makes the punishments worse, but scream he does, the pain too much to hold inside. A flurry of fur and teeth, a dead Alpha, and the scenting of his fated mate leaves the visiting shifter as their new Alpha. So much for best laid plans.                   Amazon KU


Sometimes the worst scars are the ones you can’t see. World War III broke out 130 years ago when humans found out that my people—magi—and shifters were real. They’ve been imprisoning and enslaving our two species since. But now humans need our help protecting the world from the strange monsters they let cross the veil between realms. Eighteen years ago, my world changed. Suddenly I was allowed freedoms I’d never had before, but I was still at the Non-Human Specialties Operations’ beck and call. Which is how I found myself on a team with my best friend, five shifters, and a human. Now, I have to figure out a way to work with others—with shifters. I’ve never been one to trust easily, and I don’t see that changing, but this shifter pride has a way of getting past my walls. Unfortunately, all that means is now I have even more people I need to protect against the evils of this world, and I really don’t know how I’m gonna do it. All three species have been at odds for more than a century, but maybe Cosmo—a lion shifter—and I can put aside our differences to work together and keep everyone safe. And if I’m secretly crushing on the guy, well, I think I’ll keep that to myself.            Amazon KU

“New” is generally plus or minus a week or two. I try to catch up on ones I missed in recent months.  And I may mention ‘special items’.

I do NOT cover every single new release in SFR/FantasyR/PNR. I never have. That would be an impossible task for any human! I assemble my list by hand every week based on various informal inputs, and I do curate the list to some extent…

Some authors aren’t in KU but still don’t list books with Apple or other platforms. This report is very time consuming to prepare so I’ve always had to limit myself and cannot go and look up every book on all the platforms. If an author gives me their other buy links, I include them here but generally I develop the post on my own, not from author-supplied information. I curate and prepare this post individually every week to help connect readers/books/authors and I have to be very careful not to give it so much time as an activity that I don’t write my own novels! Thanks for the feedback and happy reading!

I check and verify all the buy links at the time I create the post  but after that I’m not responsible.

  1. Another great week. You are right about those covers. Lol. Personally I don’t use audio books, so not an issue for me, but am I missing something? Is it not possible for the reader to search this out themselves? Plus, audio books often get released after the book itself.

    • All true re the audiobooks! There are probably countless ways this report could be enhanced and upgraded but since I do it primarily as a labor of love for the community and it does take away time from my writing, I don’t usually agree to add to my own work! I just thought I’d see how it went adding the audiobook notation and if it really was helpful. Too soon to tell yet but there sure didn’t seem to be very many.
