Reasons Why I Might Never Survive as My Own Badass Female Protagonist by Kenzie Jennings

Reasons Why I Might Never Survive as My Own Badass Female Protagonist by Kenzie Jennings

Kenzie Jennings is an amazing author whose dark fiction has been published at Death's Head Press. Such works include the Splatterpunk Award nominated book, Reception and one of the newest additions to the Splatter Western series, Red Station.

I am astounded by the author's ability to craft one of the most unforgiving, resilient, and deadly female protagonists I...

It's my main priority to help authors be successful so that they can afford to write books (For me. For us). This...

Publisher: Flame Tree Press
Janelle's Review:

Glenn Rolfe’s UNTIL SUMMER COMES AROUND is an all-consuming, 1980s coming-of-age, nostalgic, vampire extravaganza of a story. I “summer breezed” right on through this entire book, and much like the vampires in this story, I...


You've Got Mail! by Andrew Fowlow, 'The Book Dad'

You've Got Mail! by Andrew Fowlow, 'The Book Dad'

Newsletters can be an extremely valuable asset for authors. It's a means of reaching their readers and keeping them up-to-date on current works in progress, news, and upcoming releases. 


Don't hesitate… punch in that email address and reap the benefits.
