Today is officially Yule, the Winter Solstice, which marks when longer nights slowly begin to turn to longer days. It is the longest night of the year ... which makes it perfect for curling up with a cup of your favorite holiday beverage (cocoa for me!) and a good book!
I have received review copies of four indie books from four very talented women, and will be steadily devouring them over the weeks to come. A couple are not quite in the same vein as The Novels of Aviario, but I believe that independent authors should look out for each other, regardless of genre! So there'll be a little variety in the offerings. Here's a sneak peek at what I'll be reviewing soon:
Some Assistance Required by C.L. Ogilvie - Supernatural meets romantic comedy when a human in a world full of supernatural creatures takes a job as a personal assistant to a very unique attorney. This one's been described as "a supernatural version of Bridget Jones"... I think I'm in for a fun read!
Mothmen: Myths & Legends, Volume One by Kaelan Rhywiol (no purchase link available) - Another supernatural romance ... I was told by the author that this one is more explicit, so I will be writing my review for her to post on her website. (I try to keep the books I review here to an R rating.) Once it's finished, I'll post a link to the review for those who would care to read it.
The Order of Moonlight by Lexi Miles - Lexi's synopsis on Amazon makes this sound like a boiler-plate supernatural romance, but she assures me there's plenty of mystery and suspense, as well. She's a sweet, supportive friend, so I look forward to seeing what she's cooked up ... I have a feeling she may be selling herself short in her descriptions.
Stolen Ink by Holly Evans - Holly's a colleague of mine, and her writing is fabulous. This is the first in her new urban fantasy series, which blends magic with the art of tattooing. It's a really original concept, and I'm excited to see what she does with it!
Since I won't see you all here again until after the holidays, I hope you all have a wonderful week, no matter what you celebrate! I'll see you all next time for the last blog post of 2016!
