June Giveaway: Missed Chances

I have a new Taster Flight coming out on June 7: Hemmed In is an anthology of classic short stories about women's lives. I think it is my favorite taster flight yet, and to celebrate its release, I decided to giveaway TWO copies of the very first Taster Flight I did, Missed Chances.

Guest Post: Eight BookTubers You Need to Subscribe to

Today I have a guest post from Dane Cobain, who introduced his book No Rest for the Wicked to us about a year ago. Today's post isn't an introduction to a book. Instead it is an introduction to BookTube, which is something I've been meaning to explore!

Book Introduction: HEY DOORMAN VIII: True Tales of an Uncommon Bouncer in Los Angeles

Today's Book Introduction post introduces the fourth book in the Hey Doorman series. I like to read series in order, so I have the first book in the series in my "to read" folder on my Kindle. However, the fourth book is the one that's just come out. Here's the intro:

Reading for The Resistance

I initially intended to write a somewhat light-hearted, if still seriously intended, Taster Flight of short ebooks to read to shore you up to resist the harmful actions of the new administration in the White House. But then, those actions got even more ominous. Friday's executive order on immigration was useless in increasing our safety, needlessly cruel in its extent, and sloppy in its implementation. News that White House political strategist is going to be on the National Security Council is simply breathtaking. It is unprecedented, and for good reason.
