I’m excited to share some good news. BiblioBoard has chosen to add Love Lies Bleeding to Indie Ontario and Indie Canada! This means Love Lies Bleeding will be featured and promoted in libraries as a local indie book. Check it out:

The submission process was a long one, so it was great to find out that Love Lies Bleeding made the cut. And now, assuming this pandemic will ever end, I can look forward to participating in events and signings at libraries around the province and country.

If your local library (or bookstore) doesn’t carry Love Lies Bleeding, not to fear. Let them know you’d like to see it on their shelves. (If they ask, you can tell them it’s available through Ingram.)

In other news, I’m making progress on the new book. Part of what’s slowing it down is that I keep adding to it lol. I think the changes will make for a better read, though, and I hope you’ll all agree when it’s finished. This book is going to offer more insight into characters from Love Lies Bleeding, as well as introducing a major new character, and bringing back newbie vampire Trina, whom you’ll remember from Blood Magic. I’m really looking forward to being able to share it with you.

Finally, I just want to wish my fellow Canadians 🍁 a Happy Thanksgiving! Stay safe and enjoy your feast with family and/or friends (or solo, because a quiet holiday can be the best kind of holiday).

Cheers,

Well, I finally finished Practical Magic, and while I can’t say I hated it, I do have to admit that it’s one of two books where I liked the movie better (the other one being The Princess Bride). I don’t think I’ll be rushing to read the sequel (but I’m very much on board for a movie sequel with the original cast!)

For my next read, I’ve actually chosen two books. First a re-read:

I loved this book, so I’m excited to revisit it!

The other one is a bit of a departure. Since I’m trying to improve my French skills, I keep hearing that a great way to learn another language is to read books in that language. I do have a few French books in my collection, but they’re all currently packed, so I checked to see if any e-books were available free (from reputable sources). There were a few promising options, so I picked the one that looked the most fun (and manageable for my reading level):

I can’t resist a good paranormal read 🙂 And it’s the first in a series, so I could have a lot of solid French practice ahead of me.
