January Book Bonanza!

Happy New Year! I hope you had a fun and safe holiday season. I traveled a bit to see family, snuggled with the grand babies and had some girl time with both my mother and my daughter. It was a perfect holiday, until I came home sick. Not Covid, luckily, but a bad head cold. It's the price you pay for snuggles with little snot machines. Worth it.
I had planned to do a sort of retrospective of the year in this newsletter, but because my brain is currently fogged with cold medicine, I'll keep that for the next newsletter. But I didn't want you to miss out on some great deals happening right now. 
January is traditionally book bonanza month. People get new e-readers for Christmas or Amazon gift cards and what better way to start the New Year than with new books! 

So I created a FREE-2-3 promotion for the occasion. Books 1-3 of the Valkyrie Bestiary are on sale for the next 5 days. If you haven't read this series, now is the time to get lost in a new world.  If you have read it, please considering passing this promo onto a fellow book lover. 
And I have more free books for you under the Book Fairs tab. The Stuff Your Kindle with Fantasy event is happening right now. This is huge! No matter what kind of fantasy you read, you'll find something there. So dig in!

Valkyrie Bestiary FREE-2-3 Sale is January 1-5 only!

2023 Goodreads Reading Challenge

I overshot my Goodreads Reading Challenge estimate by 25 books this year! Whoops. How did you do in 2023?

I'm looking for a new venue to track my reading. Apart from the nastiness that flares up on Goodreads from time to time, I feel like the website hasn't been updated since 1890. What do you use to track your reading? I'd love to hear other suggestions. You can reply right in the comments below.
