Hey there, Wednesday! Need some links? I’m back from attending Book Expo America in NYC. I did not stay for BookCon. I’m happy to be home for a little bit before I head back to New York for my first RWA. I’m very excited to attend! … We have an update from Cleo, who was able to visit the Monument Quilt and find the square she contributed. Visit the original post to see her photos! … Happy Pride Month to my fellow LGBT readers! Sarah sent me this “Orientation & Gender Armory” artwork from Foxflight Studios. I’m heavily considering buying the Battleaxe Bi pin. … The Strand in NYC is hosting a Romance Game Night on July 25th! Sarah is emceeing the event, with Sonali Dev, Helena Hunting, Alisha Rai, and Lauren Layne in attendance.

However, it was an amazing read and hit really close to home for me, as it discusses the relationship between women, menopause, and Alzheimer’s. This specifically gave me pause: There’s…

Strange Practice Strange Practice by Vivian Shaw is $2.99! This is a Kindle Daily Deal and it’s being price-matched. I’ve been so curious about this one because the heroine is a “fast-talking doctor to the undead.” It sounds all sorts of awesome. If you’ve read this one, let me know what you thought! Meet Greta Helsing, fast-talking doctor to the undead. Keeping the supernatural community not-alive and well in London has been her family’s specialty for generations. Greta Helsing inherited the family’s highly specialized, and highly peculiar, medical practice. In her consulting rooms, Dr. Helsing treats the undead for a host of ills – vocal strain in banshees, arthritis in barrow-wights, and entropy in mummies. Although barely making ends meet, this is just the quiet, supernatural-adjacent life Greta’s been groomed for since childhood. Until a sect of murderous monks emerges, killing human and undead Londoners alike. As terror takes hold of the city, Greta must use her unusual skills to stop the cult if she hopes to save her practice, and her life.

B- Full English by Rachel Spangler February 12, 2019 · Bywater Books NB: This guest review is from Reader Tara Scott. If you want to read her previous guest reviews (and we highly recommend that you do), you can see them all here. Tara reads a lot of lesbian romances. You can catch her regularly reviewing at The Lesbian Review and Lambda Literary and hear her talk about lesbian fiction (including romance) on her podcast Les Do Books. You can also hit her up for recommendations on Twitter (@taramdscott). … I’ve mentioned before that I’m a huge fan of Rachel Spangler’s lesbian romances, so I was pretty excited when Full English was announced. It really should have come with a warning label, though. Something like, “This book may cause cravings for all the scones with jam and clotted cream.” Or maybe “Get your credit card ready, because Full English will make you want to run away to an English seaside village.” So, before we go any further, consider yourself warned. It starts with Emma Volant as she rolls into Amberwick, a sleepy fictional village that I’m disappointed I can’t visit in real life. As a famous author living in New York City,…
