More Changes

Kate Policani:

Some updates to my review policy.

Autumn Leaves

I used Grammarly to grammar check this post, because it sometimes sounds right in my head but after I click “Publish” mistakes suddenly appear. (My computer must have gremlins because it can’t possibly be my fault.)

I have made some additional changes to my review blog! Starting now, I will now accept review books mainly through Awesome Indies. This fits in with more opportunities on the Awesome Indies site, where independent authors can have their books evaluated by industry professionals against specific criteria for quality fiction & deemed to be of the same quality of craftsmanship as books published by mainstream publishing houses . Most of the books I review are indie books anyway, so this gives us a streamlined approach. I will still consider traditionally-published books. Visit my Review Policy page for more details.

How will independent/self-published books get onto my review list through Awesome Indies? I have placed…

Discovery 4: Ocean City Lowdown

Kate Policani:

This is the last book!

Ocean City Lowdown

by Kim Kash

Genre: Adventure, Contemporary, Women

Read the author’s post here:

Ocean City Lowdown introduces Eastern Shore Maryland reporter Jamie August, who has a talent for unearthing more than her editor wants and a weakness for Ravens jerseys and sparkly underwear. Jamie’s tenacity, smarts, and sheer recklessness—plus some smokin’ striptease dance moves—can get her out of some tight spots, but are they enough to save her from a psychopathic arsonist and two generations of corrupt real estate tycoons?

At the end of this Discover Authors tour, one lucky guy or girl will walk away with a free copy of Ocean City Lowdown! For real. How? It’s so easy. Just email me at to let me know you’re interested, and keep your fingers crossed!

Meanwhile, here’s a teeny free sample to whet your appetite:

The 3rd Option

by Ben Sharpton

Genre: Thriller

Read the author’s post here:

Published by Belle Isle Books
     Allan Chappel enrolled in seminary to change the world, but people lied and people died, and he turned in his clerical collar for an office cubicle. Now, years later, the ghosts of his past are back to haunt him, and they’re uglier and more powerful than before.
When the offices of a new medical think tank called Inc.Ubator are destroyed in a fiery blast, Allan finds himself the prime suspect and the target of an international manhunt. Forced into hiding, he sets out to find the terrorists responsible and clear his name. But his quest for answers only leads to more questions: What were the researchers at Inc.Ubator hiding? And who was willing to spill blood to keep their work a secret? Allan must stay alive long enough…

Discovery 4: The Trouble With Rane

This one is on my reviewnlist!

The Trouble With Rane

The Trouble With Rane

by Robert Beacham

Genre: Science Fiction, Humor

Read the author’s post here:

The Trouble With Rane is an adventure-packed, humorous, science fiction enovella from Robert Beacham. At 18,000 words it’s long enough to get your teeth into but short enough not to demand too much of your time.

Although there’s an earlier short story (available for free here) this is our first proper introduction to Ranger extraordinaire, Ceras Rane – a highly-trained individual whose skills and deductive abilities are only surpassed by his remarkable luck.

Going “Outside” on Earth provides more dangers than just the toxic atmosphere – but that’s just the start of Ceras’ problems. There’s intrigue, deceit, secretive departments within law enforcement, androids, corruption, gun battles, aliens, a huge space station, a moon colony, drug smuggling… even a cat or two.

Oh, and it’s only 99¢ – how can you…

Penumbra by Kat Micari cover art


An urban fantasy story that will grip you and leave you wanting more.

Fed up with the dirty city and a disenchanting life as a fashion model, Beauty’s world is at least safe.  But the illusion of safety shatters the night that shefrees herself from her self-imposed fears only to be thrust into the magical underbelly of the city, where forces that want to save humanity and evil beings that want to feed off humanity’s despair fight for balance and power.

Driven from both the comforts and the trappings of her old life, now hunted by a cadre of sinister, rat-faced business men, Beauty’s only hope is to join with a strange magical ally. Together, with the help of fae creatures in unlikely guises, they must seek out an enchanted, improbable artifact that can heal the city before evil tips the balance, once and for all.

This powerful…

Author Discovery – Inertia: Book One

Kate Policani:

WARNING: This series is erotica. I’m not a fan of erotica, but I am a fan of sharing books!

Originally posted on Wandering Stars Press:

We’re quite proud to be a part of Discover Authors blog hop event, where several authors share each other’s works.  It’s a fun trip from one blog to the next over the next ten days where I’ll be sharing posts by the other authors who are participating.

The book I am taking on this tour of the virtual world is Inertia: Book One, the latest installment in the Parliament of Twilight world. Inertia is best described as a Yaoi-inspired M/M erotic romance with elements of horror, paranormal and a dash of sci-fi, all rolled up into a delicious, twisted adventure.  There is a warning we post on the Parliament of Twilight books and it goes something like this:

Warning: The books set in the Parliament of Twilight world are often more than the average person can handle. Contents may include but are not limited to: beast form sex, angst, spanking…

The second book of our Discovery!

Eden’s Black Rose

by Jaclyn Tracey

Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Vampires

Read the author’s post here:

Eden’s Black Rose, by Jaclyn Tracey~ What doesn’t kill you, Serina Spencer can usually cure.
A little snippet to tantalize your palate.
Serina Spencer flung open the carriage door and peered inside. The smell coming from the carriage impaled her. It was the morgue all over again, only sickeningly sweet in a repulsive-gagging-dry-heave-her-breakfast-lunch-and-supper sense.
Serina ran for cover and expelled the contents of her stomach. She made her way back to the carriage, not sure whether she felt better or worse. She leaned toward worse.
Peering inside the carriage, Serina stepped back, her eyes wide.  Blood covered the man, the seats, and pooled around his feet, but not a single drop lay on the woman. Was she unconscious or drained dry? And did she want the answer to that? The man’s vocal…
