I have my first Indie Book Review of the year lined up: the first book of The Letter Mage, by Alexandra Penn! It looks like an amazing read, and I have a review copy in hand which I'm looking forward to digging into. Fantasy, magic, space, and some wonderful LGBTQ representation? It sounds like everything I enjoy reading, and more. I can't wait to let you all know how it is!
My final note for this week is a bit of a somber one, as well ... normally, I only promote my books here on my website, and am more apt to nudge you toward my Patreon for crowdfunding, but two days ago, one of our lovely cats got suddenly ill. I've set up a YouCaring fundraiser for her ER vet bills and any procedures she may require ... Even if you can't afford to chip in, I would appreciate it very much if you could help spread the word. The kindness of strangers over the last 24 hours since I opened the fundraiser is astounding: a person I don't know from Adam donated $200. Knowing that there are other kind hearts out there in the world gives me so much hope: not just for Bella, but for our world and our future.
You can see the fundraiser, share, or donate @ YouCaring: Help Us Fix Bella's Belly.
