How easily was I influenced this month – Self-Published Fantasy Month Edition.

I love Self-published fantasy month. I always come across new authors and books that seem right up my alley and this September was no different. In fact, I think I added more books to my kindle than the previous two combined. A big reason was the fantastic content produced by the team behind the Self-Published fantasy month. If you haven’t checked out all of the interviews, guest posts and reviews, click HERE. You won’t regret it. Your bankcard might be a little lighter by the end though.

So without further ado here are a few of the books I picked up this month. Continue reading “How easily was I influenced this month – Self-Published Fantasy Month Edition.”

What I’ll be adding to the TBR next…

4 self-published fantasy books that are calling my name.

My tbr is a mammoth thing, it has taken on a life of it’s own and if I hadn’t started reading on my kindle, it would have probably filled my house and suffocated me. I don’t let that stop me though, I add to my book collection way to often. So I thought I would give you a look at the books I’m hoping to add to my collection soon.

MS Readathon

The MS Readathon is a fantastic event. I took part in it as a child and have lots of nostalgic feelings from my experiences. I loved to read as a child so it was my favourite fundraising event.

As a teenager I had a teacher, Mrs Belcher (I think that’s right, its been 20 yrs), with Multiple Sclerosis. she was a bloody badass and total inspiration. She put up with zero shit. She was one of my absolute favourite teachers.

A few years ago my uncle was diagnosed and it completely changed his families life. He lived with us a lot while I was growing up and he and his wife mean the world to me. It is a cruel disease.

So this year in honour of my Uncle Mark, my kids are both taking part.
