New Author Friend Shout Out

Every now and then I like to read something on the adult side of the tracks (Jessica E. Subject, Laurell Hamilton. Yes that kind of adult book. Close your mouth, you'll catch flies, as my Grandma used to say.), but just like with any other book I read, I'm picky. And when it comes to beta reading for new people, especially those that write 'adult' novels, I'm even pickier. So when I was asked by my oldest friend to beta read her 'adult' fantasy novel, I was skeptical and more than a little hesitant.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that I loved it! The concept was refreshing, the writing was excellent, and the characters were compelling. With that said, I am happy to recommend Lilly VanHorn for the adult reader's out there. Her first fantasy novella, Valkyrie Slumbering, is releasing this spring. Get ready for a scorching tale set in the time of the Vikings in a world that isn't often explored in literature any more. Her first novel will follow soon after this fall.

You can find Lilly at the following links (if you're under 18, don't click on the links below or your computer will self-destruct):
