My 3 favorite books read this year

My 3 favorite books read this year

I didn’t get to read a lot this year, but I did read some great books! Some of them are quite possible my TOP favorite books now. And I may or may not have given several of these books as Christmas gifts to friends this year…

What was your top favorite this year? Or top 3 if you can’t choose? Let me know in the comments!

In no particular order (because they are all equally brilliant!) mine are:

In Solitude’s Shadow (Book 1 Empire of Ruin) by David Green

One of my new favorite authors! I really enjoyed the first two books available in series! I hear there are 2 more coming, this year I think. This is Dark/Epic Fantasy. The magic is fantastic. The characters are so human (except the ones who are elves…). This series is muuuch darker than my stuff, though, so be warned.

Legends and Lattes by Travis Baldree

This book was so cozy and just feel-good fantasy that I really enjoyed it. Which is also no surprise as it was so popular, it got picked up by a major publisher! Superb writing and worldbuilding. This is definitely a book I can see myself re-reading for comfort, and it pretty much opened up the world of “Cozy Fantasy” to me!

Inked (Guilded Blood book 1) by Rachel Rener

This is urban fantasy at its finest! The main character is a tattoo artist, and quickly finds herself embroiled in the strange and dangerous world of Fae. This is also a new author to me, and I’ve just pre-ordered the 3rd book in the series because it is just that good.

After a year of hard training, Kira’s time at Gekko-ji is coming to an end. Her ceremony is cut short when Tigran and his army arrive with a powerful weapon and new laws prohibiting magic.

Now everyone in the Realm of Camellia is in danger.

When strange magic starts appearing across the realm, Kira must decide whether or not to continue playing the political game.

Or become a rebel.

As more anomalies appear, Kira and her friends set out to undo the evil wrought by the same man responsible for separating Kira’s family. In order to defeat Tigran, Kira must delve into a centuries-old mystery and seek out allies both old and new.

Can she unravel the secrets of the past and save the realm from total darkness?

The epic conclusion to the Realm of Camellia Series.

Kingdoms of Wrath and Ice is Live!

Kingdoms of Wrath and Ice is Live!

Kingdoms of Wrath and Ice is my first short story anthology, dedicated to icy villains. Each of the fifteen stories will leave you questioning who really is the villain, or just whose side you’re on.

As the editor and publisher of this anthology, I am so excited to share it with you!

A dangerous kelpie trying to protect her sacred lands.
An ancient queen, reawakened from a long ago death.
A Nordic assassin, bent on purging his court from corruption.

And many more stories of wrath and ice!

Happy Book Birthday, All Hallows Airship!

Happy Book Birthday, All Hallows Airship!

All Hallows Airship lands today just in time for peak autumn foliage here in Connecticut.

A catastrophic blast. A haunting memory. And she only has one chance to prove her family’s innocence.

All Caz Coppersdown has ever wanted is to be a journalist for the Soldark Times. But the chances of her parents letting her pursue a breaking story are slim. Secluded after a childhood illness, Caz finally gets to leave Soldark for a trip to the country to her great aunt’s estate, but she quickly finds out there isn’t anything newsworthy there—unless you count her aunt’s upcoming All Hallows Eve soiree.

Until the local airshow clashes with her aunt’s party plans—causing more than just pumpkins to be destroyed. When Caz meets one of the airship pilots and discovers something about her family’s past, Caz might have just found her big story.

But she’ll need to dig for the facts quickly, because the constables are looking for a culprit, and old ghosts are making themselves known on this All Hallows Eve.

The 3rd book in Seasons of Soldark (which can be read in any order), is coming October 25th!

The Mechanical Masquerade: A Steampunk Novella, Now available!

The Mechanical Masquerade: A Steampunk Novella, Now available!

Enter Soldark, a city full of ambitious inventors, wily clockmaker’s daughters, and a cast of characters that will set your steampunk heart aflame.

Each novella in Seasons of Soldark is a standalone story, and can be read in any order. They each follow a different character (though some characters do make appearances throughout), and each story revolves around a season or holiday.


A thieving inventor. A future at stake. And she only has one night to discover the truth.

The most prestigious Midsummer celebration in Soldark is only three days away, and this is Verity Pennington’s best–and last–chance to attend. Verity thinks she might just be able to pull off a fantastic mask in order to gain entry, if she can only tap into her unwilling artistic side.

But when a thief breaks into her family’s clock shop and steals invaluable plans, it isn’t just summer revelry on Verity’s dance card. She’ll need to track down the thief–who’ll be showcasing an invention at the ball–and find a way to confront him amid the Soldark elite, without getting kicked out in the process.

With her family’s reputation at stake, she’ll do anything to make it right. But things at the ball are not as they seem, and Verity must find her way through a maze of lies and mechanical masterpieces before she can find out the truth.

Emily Huffman spills the tea on Shattered Souls

Emily Huffman spills the tea on Shattered Souls

Today I’ve got some fun book news to share with you, as Emily Huffman stops by to spill the tea on her fantasy book, Shattered Souls, which is currently free on Amazon until June 4th!

Ok, Emily spill it!

So I’d say I’m letting you in on a secret, but that would be a lie, because I want EVERYONE to know about this! To kick off summer and the Summer Indie Fantasy Addicts Challenge, I am making the first book in my series free.

If you love the chosen ones trope, found family, and want to get lost in a world full of magic and magical creatures, download your copy for free now!

How about some tea?

Fun fact: Collecting tea can be just as dangerous as collecting books. Just like you might have to buy new bookshelves to house your new books, you may find yourself having to reorganize your kitchen cabinets to accommodate your growing tea collection, as well as the numerous tea cups that follow. Some experts believe that you can solve this problem by not buying any new teas until you finish the ones you have, but as all of our TBR lists can attest to, this only works in theory and is not practical.
