Here’s an interesting post from Michael Cristiano on Ryan Lanz’s blog on the topic of quickly releasing multiple novels. Take a look ;)!
Every Move I have Made is a suspense-filled, roller coaster of a story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats until The. Very. Last. Sentence. Cameron’s prose flows smoothly, the dialogue is witty and humorous (particularly when it comes to Hayley and her friends), and the characters are well-developed. Fans of suspense and mystery will be thoroughly entertained, as will the YA audience with Cameron’s authentic teen characters and a story line that will engage teen readers.
Space travel and time travel collide in this entertaining story by G. L. Tomas. Tomas’s story is captivating from the beginning, with well-crafted characters that readers will connect with on multiple levels. The adventure and mystery begin right away, ensnaring and enthralling readers in a fast-paced, entertaining read that also manages to be thoughtful and funny.
Fans of sci-fi and YA will enjoy The Mark of Noba immensely.
The Unforgettables is a charming coming-of-age story that readers young and old will enjoy and connect with on multiple levels. The prose is on point, witty, culturally relevant, and flows from the page with ease, drawing readers into its entertaining web. The YA audience will connect with Paul and Felicia whose characters are well-drawn teens, while the adult audience will laugh, smile, and cry as they recall what it was like to be a teen—angst, good times, and all.
In addition to an entertaining and relatable story, Tomas also provides readers with lessons on non-American cultures and traditions. For instance, Felicia’s character is a first-generation Haitian-American, while Paul’s character is half-Japanese and Buddhist. Furthermore, Tomas includes non-binary and trans characters in supporting roles, giving readers even more of a reason to read this wonderful tale. Cheers to Tomas for creating not only an entertaining read, but one that readers can learn from, and one that reaches a wider audience.
The Unforgettables is not to be missed. It is a truly an unforgettable story (pun totally intended there!).
Summary (from Amazon):
Laying hands upon the injured and dying, Avry of Kazan absorbs their wounds and diseases into herself. But rather than being honored for her skills, she is hunted. Healers like Avry are accused of spreading the plague that has decimated the Fifteen Realms, leaving the survivors in a state of chaos.
Stressed and tired from hiding, Avry is abducted by a band of rogues who, shockingly, value her gift above the golden bounty offered for her capture. Their leader, an enigmatic captor-protector with powers of his own, is unequivocal in his demands: Avry must heal a plague-stricken prince—leader of a campaign against her people. As they traverse the daunting Nine Mountains, beset by mercenaries and magical dangers, Avry must decide who is worth healing and what is worth dying for. Because the price of peace may well be her life….
