Esmes Indie Highlights/SPFBO: Where the Waters Turn Black by Benedict Patrick

I would have picked this book up anyway since I've already read, They Mostly Come Out at Night, which is book 1 in this series. Although this is a 'sequel', it's really more of a stand alone story in the same world IMO, although there is a cross over character by the end, you don't… Continue reading Esmes Indie Highlights/SPFBO: Where the Waters Turn Black by Benedict Patrick

My goal actually is to hit 90 by the time the winner is announced.… Continue reading Esmes Indie Author Highlights/SPFBO: The Half Killed by Quenby Olson

Weeee! I loved this book, it was my first 5 star in a while, it's currently still in the running for the SPFBO contest and reading so many awesome books in this contest is making it tough who to root for. I have several favorite books that are in the same blogger grouping, and every… Continue reading Esmes Indie Author Highlights/SPFBO: Faithless by Graham Austin-King
