Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
You know you’re getting old when you need multiple pairs of glasses to see properly. Well… Maybe not old, but stubbornness resulted in this at a younger age than most people.
A couple weeks back, I finally had to admit that my eyes were way worse than I expected them to be and went to see the doctor. I had been experiencing severe eye strain at the end of the day and for someone who spends most of the time at the computer writing or working, it’s really hard to do so when everything is blurry on the screen. It got to the point I was not even wearing my glasses to read. I’d take them off because I’d see better without them.
Apparently, my nearsightedness got better. I’m not as nearsighted as I used to be. But because I was stubborn and not wanting to see the eye doctor, it resulted in some fancy term that basically meant the muscles in your eyes that work on focusing your lenses got strained and I wasn’t able to go back and forth between long and short distances at ease. So we ordered my glasses.
They came in Saturday. It’s a world of difference. No more eye strain and tired eyes. I’m able to see without squinting and things are so much clearer.
All of this to say, I’ll be able to read a lot more now that I can see clearly. I’m quite excited about that.
We have a bunch of great books to share with you this week and not just books on sale, but a cover reveal from one of our authors and a flash sale on two of her books. Check all of that out below!
I also want to let you know, we’re changing to a different newsletter provider, so don’t be surprised if you see us coming from someplace different next week.
Enjoy and happy reading!

Blood Ex Libris
Blood, passion, and swords. And don’t forget flamethrowers. And one librarian, in over her head.
How did I get here: covered in blood and holding a sword I can’t use?
It all started when the dark and mysterious stranger showed up at my children’s reading hour. Of course I noticed him. I’d been single (and bored) for longer than I care to admit. Me, I’m Anushka (Noosh) Rosetti, head librarian.
He turned out to be a vampire. And not just any vampire: Vlad Dracula. Although he goes by another name these days, and he says he’s changed his violent ways. He definitely seemed more of a lover than a fighter. At first.
In a whirlwind of passion and blood-drinking, I made a crucial but impulsive decision: share blood with him a third time, and give up normal human society forever, making my life among the “am’r”—that’s what the vampires call themselves.
The whirlwind just keeps spinning faster. Before I know it, I’m at an am’r summit meeting—and then, abducted by Vlad’s oldest enemy. He’s hoping to use me to undo all of my lover and my new family’s plans to save am’r society from tearing itself apart.
I thought I was just going to archive some ancient books, but somehow I have to keep myself from being used as a pawn by the craziest bad guy ever, escape back to the good guys (and I’m not sure how “good” they really are) across a desert (I don’t even know what country I’m in!) and not be killed in the process. I don’t know how I will survive the next five minutes, never mind save my beloved’s life, too….
Blood Ex Libris is the first book in a brand new, dark urban fantasy series mixing horror, history, and blood-soaked romance featuring a snarky librarian heroine, a sensual but complex hero in the story of a life that unfolds in unexpected ways from humdrum to death-defying thrills, from Middle America to the middle of an unknown desert, surrounded by sword-fighting, explosions, and the ultimate drama of immortals meeting death.
What to expect: Steamy romance with uninhibited language, strong female lead, alpha male, graphic violence, LGBTQ+ characters, graphic violence, and blood feeding imagery.
Blood Sine Qua Non
Covered in blood, a knife in one hand and a gun in the other. This rescue attempt has gone terribly wrong.
I was finally getting used to life among the am’r (the name vampires use for themselves) in Romania, archiving a library of ancient texts, learning how to fight, and having lots of quality time with Sandu—who used to go by the name Dracula—perhaps you’ve heard of him?
But then the dreams started. Bagamil, the maker of Sandu (and, ahem, also my lover—life has gotten a lot more exciting recently), was supposed to be on a mission to the am’r of South America, but he has been missing for months now, and those nightmares tell me that something is terribly wrong.
So Sandu made rescue plans, and I insisted on coming along to help. But now I’ve been separated from all the am’r who are our allies, and I’m trapped in a booby-trapped cave system down at the bottom of the world, chased by enemy vampires with knives and guns—not fair!
And I have two problems even on top of that! First, I’m now part-am’r, which makes me smell even more delicious to them, and secondly, well, there seems to be even more bad guys than expected down here, and they all seem to be holding some deep grudges against both Sandu and Bagamil. And they want revenge right now.
How can I find my beloveds without falling into a trap or being taken captive by the hangry bad guys? Once we’re all together again, how do we figure some way out of all of this? If I’ve learned anything in my time amongst the am’r, it’s only going to be by fighting our way out….
Blood Sine Qua Non is the second book in a brand new, dark urban fantasy series mixing horror, history, and blood-soaked romance featuring a snarky librarian heroine and a sensual but complex hero in the story of an adventure like no other, with thrilling plot-twists and characters faced with “personal growth or death.” Ranging from Romania through gorgeous settings in Buenos Aires and Tierra del Fuego, get caught up in the clashes of personality and chaotic melees, fight for love with guns, knives, and the ultimate weapon against vampires: fire.
What to expect: Steamy romance with uninhibited language, strong female lead who can fight, non-monogamy, LGBTQ+ characters, graphic violence, and blood feeding imagery.
