You frequently hear authors talking about how preorders help them when their book is released. Their accumulated preorders leading up to the book’s release date all count toward sales during that first week which can help make or break that book’s performance or whether or not the author gets to continue writing that series or if they get a new contract with that publisher. Preorders are important to them and today I’d like to highlight some of the books that I currently have preordered for the remainder of 2021.Continue reading
Welcome to my January Wrap Up for 2021. This month we have seen the US capitol be stormed by racist, violent, fear mongering, hateful, terrorists.

The Tuesday of months is finally over! Does anyone else feel like February is the year’s version of Tuesday? No? Just me? Okay. Well, anyway, it wasn’t the greatest reading month for me but I did luck out with getting several books on sales and a few unexpectedly on Netgalley.
