Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
Every week, it feels like only a few days have passed since the last Wednesday, not a full week. I’m pretty sure it has everything to do with my to-do lists getting longer despite knocking items off of it. Seems like for every item I knock off, three more get added. A part of me would love to say “forget it” and stop knocking items off my to-do list but I already know it won’t stop more items from being added to it.
In other news, I got my flights and lodging booked for a trip to Australia later this summer. Looking forward to it since it’s two years after I was going to make the first trip. At least I’ll have plenty to read on the way there and back, right?
I have two questions for you lovely readers.
First, what makes you decide to try out a new author? Is it the book cover, book description, a combination of the two, or something else?
Second, what would make you try a new genre that you weren’t particularly interested in in the past?
Note: the last two books in today’s newsletter are $1.99.
Enjoy and happy reading!

The Soul Weaver
The Prince of Avonar is in desperate straits.
Betrayal devastates his plan to defeat the vile Lords of Zhev’Na without violence, and then a ruthless attack leaves his beloved wife near death.
As frustration and anger shake the fragile joining of the Prince’s body and soul, war engulfs his magical realm.
Sixteen-year-old Gerick, half-crazed with nightmare visions, pursued by past horror and his father’s wrath, flees beyond the boundaries of the known worlds. In a sunless realm of misshapen misfits, he discovers unlikely purpose and a devastating clue to the brokenness within himself.
With three worlds on the brink of ruin, the Prince and his son must look deep inside themselves to discover the truth of their enemies—a mystery bound up in Gerick’s emerging magic, a world newborn from chaos, and a whisper buried deep in Dar’Nethi legend.
“This is Gerick’s story and we quickly learn this is a different young man from the child that we saw in Guardians Of The Keep. The past does not lie quiet in Gerick, with his nightmares and fears of a corruption that could hurt those he loves. Plots and counterplots [will] intrigue the reader with surprise twists and turns. Fans of The Bridge Of D’Arnath will welcome this addition to the saga.”—Colleen Cahill, SFRevu
“Intriguing…Well written . Gerick is one of Berg’s most interesting characters and probably my favorite.”—Fantasy Literature
“Very good…read Son of Avonar and Guardians of the Keep first.”—Booklist

Academy for Reapers
I just died…and ended up with a one way ticket to the Academy for Reapers.
But first I have to pass my trial.
It’s like high school all over again.
Mean girls, homework, and the Untouchables—hot reaper guys with attitude. Of course I get partnered up with the meanest of the bunch. He’s got a serious chip on his shoulder and I find him irritatingly hot.
And did I mention there’s a war between Heaven and Hell and I’m stuck in the middle of it.
There’s a big bad demon trying to bring down the reapers and steal all the souls.
Including my dad’s.
Grab this new academy romance filled with reapers, angels, and demons who are batting for your soul!
*Academy for Reapers is an academy romance and the first in the Academy for Reaper series. This series is NOT RH. It’s recommended for 16+ due to language, mature themes, and smexy situations. Ends on a cliffhanger.
Behind Enemy Lines
Four men, brought together by chance, trapped well behind enemy lines.
Surrender and ride out the war in safety, or fight the enemy until their last breath.
They choose to fight.
Jasper van Ruiker is an elderly algae farmer, drafted into the local militia to defend his village from the invading Tenners. Lieutenant Castor “Mountie” Klocek is a Navy pilot, shot down during an air-to-ground mission. Lance Corporal Javier Julio Gregory Portillo and Sergeant Gary Go are Marine combat engineers, the only survivors of a deep-recon mission to destroy a bridge.
All four are thrust together by chance, and they must learn to work together if they are going to survive, Jasper to search for his wife and grandchildren who fled their destroyed village, and the three servicemen to reach Federation forces far to the north.
Surrounded by enemy troops, they have to decide what “duty” means. Do they attempt to avoid the enemy and exfiltrate to friendly territory to live and fight another day, or do they aggressively prosecute the war despite overwhelming odds?
This novel is set in the United Federation Marine Corps universe, 200 years before the previous series. It is a stand-alone book that does not directly tie into any of the other UFMC novels.
