Still Want to Read Royal Thief?

I’ve made this announcement in a few other places as well, so you might already have heard this. But, for those of you who don’t know, I’m currently giving away ebook copies of Royal Thief to anyone willing to give it an honest review. The book is currently available in epub, mobi, or pdf format. If you’re interested in receiving a free copy of Royal Thief, shoot me an email at and I’ll send you whichever version you prefer.

Don’t worry if you’re not as familiar with posting reviews. Whether it’s a single sentence, or a whole page, any review will be appreciated. Reviews are so important to book sales, as they often play a role in both the purchasers’s decision to buy a book and whether the booksellers themselves will stock the book. I would be so grateful to anyone who’s willing to do this.

If you have any questions, just let me know!

Also, on a side note, Royal Thief is now in stock online at most major retailers (for a while it was out of stock on Barnes and Noble and Powell’s, but it’s available those places now as well). So if you’ve been holding out for a physical copy, now’s your chance to snag one.


Indie Book Challenge

This past spring, I decided to make it a goal of mine to read more self published books published. Part of the goal stemmed from my own desire to self publish Royal Thief, but it was also a great way to explore new authors and stories. There are so many amazing self published books out there, but unfortunately they don’t always get as much attention as some of the more traditionally published stories. So, this spring, I set a goal for myself to read at least one indie book a month. I wanted to compile a list of all the self published books I’ve read so far: the ones I’ve loved, ones I wasn’t a fan of, and everything in between. This doesn’t include all the independently published books I’ve read because I only started keeping track when I set my monthly goal. And I may have missed some since I started. But, these are definitely good ones to start with.
