When I came home, I didn’t expect to be cutting down bodies. And yet, here I was with my official Frost Giant or Jotun partner, his Ragnarok wolf, and my unofficial Light Elf partner using my Hellfire blade to cut down the unfortunate victims. The perps had hanged them from every tree and lamppost along the University’s walkway. And for once, the perps weren’t Supernaturals, but Normals.

One thing I decided to add to my blog is a book review section that I’m tentatively calling Just Booking It. Basically, I decided to take the Read 50 Books a Year Challenge, so, I’m blogging about the books I’m reading. This is in my copious time between writing somewhere around 5 books each year, not to mention the production of a print book and a compilation.
Why I’m Reviewing the Competition
You may be wondering why I’m writing about the competitor books. Actually, I’m not worried if you find someone else’s book to be wonderful and you find a new author to read. A rising tide raises all ships, as we independents say. If you’re an Urban Fantasy reader and you like some of the books I recommend, chances are you’ll enjoy my books, if you’ve stumbled upon my website. Which is awesome.
Keeping Me True to My Goal
Another reason for reviewing books is that it will keep me true to my goal of reading at least 50 books in a year. Yeah, that means you get reviews of all the books I read, whether it’s Urban Fantasy, Science Fiction, Nonfiction, or whatever. Some books you’re just not going to care about. Other books you may find interesting. Whatever. But I will let you know whether I like them or not.
Books I’m Currently Reading
Not surprisingly, I have a list of books I’m reading right now. I include them at the end of my reviews so you can buy them and read along, if you’re so inclined. Note that the books I list on the reviews have affiliate links that gives me a small amount of compensation, which enables me to keep this page going. So, if you buy the books, please support this website. Thanks.
Finally got around to putting together the Frost and Fire cover. Let me know what you think! You can preorder it HERE.
Yep, I finally got around to creating a compilation of the two books, That Dragon was in No Way My Fault and A Date with a Werewolf, now together for both a Kindle Unlimited compilation and a print book! The compilation is $2.99 or FREE if you have Kindle Unlimited. The print version is $5.95 USD. Either way, it’s a great introduction into The Ironspell Chronicles. Check out the new preview function beneath the photo below.
Oh my! Yes, Ironspell, There is a Santa Claus will be released BEFORE CHRISTMAS! Yes! I got it edited and into the production queue, which means it should be out by December 23rd. How cool is that?
Get Your Copy Before Christmas
Tonight I entered “The End” on Yes, Ironspell, There is a Santa Claus. Normally, I give myself some time between editing and the first draft, but given the publication date (Christmas) and when it’s actually due on Amazon (Solstice), I’m pretty convinced I have to get it in top shape now. By the way, you can read the first chapter HERE.
This Book Surprised Me
Unsurprisingly, (see what I did there?), the ending changed from what I planned. I realized as I was writing it that the running gag was actually a major piece in the story. Since I don’t want to spoil the surprise, I’ll keep quiet about it. Order a copy, if you haven’t yet.
Frost and Fire should be out in March; You can thank Yes, Ironspell, there is a Santa Claus for that
I know, I know. I promised Frost and Fire after Hellfire, but after writing the first two chapters, I suddenly looked at the calendar and discovered it was October. So, I made up my mind to write the Christmas story first. And yeah, there is a Santa Claus in it, but this isn’t the type of bedtime story to read to your kids. Unless they’re at least teenagers. Look for Frost and Fire on Amazon. I just got the preorder up, so it might be a bit before it shows up on my series list.
If you don’t hear from me sooner, have a Merry Christmas, Happy Yule, Happy Hanukah, Merry Kwanzaa, Happy Solstice, or whatever you celebrate.
I love getting free stuff, and I bet you do too. That’s why I’m telling you about the Free Paranormal and Fantasy Tales promotion going on right now through the end of December. Check out the free books, and maybe you’ll find another author you enjoy.
I thought I’d offer my fans a sneak peek at the upcoming book, Yes, Ironspell, there is a Santa Claus. My blurb for the book is as follows:
The Krampus is kidnapping children. Santa makes an unscheduled stop to ask Ironspell and his Jotun partner, Vetr, for help. Together, they must visit Hel to gain entrance to the Krampus’ stronghold. But can they rescue the children and stop the Krampus from enacting his dastardly plan?
Check out the first chapter, and be sure to preorder it right here!
