Some of you may have noticed the general lack of recommendations. The truth is simple: I was in progress of releasing a novel. If I were unethical, I’d use my recommendations site to showcase it… but I’m not. This site is to help connect you folks with books I think look interesting, not to toot my own horn.
So, I haven’t had a lot of time to recommend novels because I have been editing, producing, and releasing a novel. I’m sorry.
I’ll be much better about finding you all sorts of interesting new fantasy novels come next week. I need to recover from the marathon. I’ll have time to browse and read samples! I’m also working with one publisher to get the latest news on their novels, as well as easy access to samples (possibly in advance!) so I can recommend them on their release days.
I’m hoping to contact a few more publishers with good reputations about acquiring samples and excerpts of upcoming books so I can do more streamlined release announcements of the things I like.
I also want to get more in touch with the independent authors out there. Use the contact Lady Scribe link! Send me your samples. I make no promises I will feature your book. It may take me a week or more to reply, too. I haven’t built the habit of checking that email address often enough. (Oops!) If you have review copies available, let me know. If I’m intrigued by your sample, I may ask for an ARC and review the book at the same time I feature your title.
Next week, I will try to do double features and some publisher showcases to make up for my lack of recommendations.
