“Come on, just tell her,”
Donovan shouts, and his voice causes me to jump and gasp. I wish I could run
away and hide, but I have no clue where I would go. 
“Tell me what?” I cried
out. I don’t know how much more I can handle. 
Eden looks at me with a
softness in her eyes that keeps me from screaming and jumping through the
window in front of me. “Audrey, you are at the House of Shadows. This is a
prestigious Vampire Academy school. We train Vampires to assimilate into the
real world while also getting the best education possible,” Eden says
Wrong School…  
All at once, everything
that I had just heard and experienced hit me like a flash of lightning. To make
sure I understood exactly what she was saying, Eden smiled, allowing her white,
shiny fangs to protrude from her gums. As I gasped, her eyes turned from a
hunter green to a golden yellow.  I felt my legs crumble beneath me as
darkness swirled in my vision. I felt like thick, heavy tentacles were pulling
me down into a black abyss and there was nothing I could do to stop it. 
Oh no, I was passing out
with two Vampires in front of me.

A botched sin eater job leaves Asher Norwood’s partner—and only friend—clinging to life after she contracts a deadly infection. His only hope for a cure lies with the world famous naturalist, Dr. Theophilus Rowley Terrowin III, who lives in a far-flung corner of the treacherous Winterwind Mountains.

Stopping at nothing to save his partner, Asher risks it all to bring her to the doctor, only to find that the esteemed Dr. Terrowin has a few dark secrets of his own.

Songs of Sparrow’s Day is a novelette, the second installment in the series Sin Eater Tales, a collection of short fantasy stories set in a world inspired by the early Age of Discovery where magic is intertwined with every day life and dangerous beasts rule the wilds.

A Note About Amazon Reviews – UPDATE 5/7/2020

A Note About Amazon Reviews – UPDATE 5/7/2020

I was attempting to post two reviews on Amazon with one of them being a Kindle Unlimited book and got hit with this message:

We apologize but this account has not met the minimum eligibility requirements to write a review.”

Apparently, I haven’t spent the magical $50 in the past 12 months (but close to that). And despite having KU, which you’d think they let their paid subscription readers leave reviews, this isn’t happening from what I see.

So as of now, I cannot leave book reviews on Amazon. I’m sorry to indie authors that need them. I’ll still leave reviews on Goodreads and start leaving them on sites such as Bookbub.

And, unfortunately, I won’t be able to use booksprout. I’m totally bummed about that.

When and if I can leave reviews on Amazon, I’ll update the status of this.

UPDATE: I can now review on Amazon–5/7/2020

Review: The Gentleman Thief by Kate Gragg

Review: The Gentleman Thief by Kate Gragg

Title: The Gentleman Thief
Author: Kate Gragg
Pub Date: April 17th 2020

Enigmatic and somewhat haphazard Joe Thorne is a wannabe thief, struggling to prise himself out of his job as an overgrown chimneysweep. After taking work in the large furnaces of the alchemy district, he developed a distinctive cough with magical qualities. Ever the opportunist, when the moment comes to break into the realm of thieves and vagabonds, he leaps on it, but his chances are scuppered by one almighty sneeze. From this expulsion comes a journey to a mystical island, shrouded in ancient tradition. Valleys of crystalline rivers, arching forests deeper than the eye can fathom, and not a tavern in sight. Joe is devastated.

Swept up by a lost love, a frog-man (or is it a man-frog?) with amnesia, and a sentient handkerchief, they embark (Joe, somewhat reluctantly) on a quest to solve a mysterious disappearance which still shrouds the island.

The Gentleman Thief is a funny, quirky fantasy that will appeal to many readers.

What you’ll get:

Magical coughing mishaps.
An unlikely protagonist.
An island with secrets.
Entertainment from beginning to end.
