August 2016 Read & Reviewed Round-Up

It's hard to believe it's already September! Which, of course, means it's time for a quick recap of the books read and reviewed here over the prior month. Here we go!


  1. The Approach by Chris Holm
  2. The Jersey Devil by Hunter Shea
  3. Savages by Greg F. Gifune
  4. The Con Season by Adam Cesare
  5. Renovation by Sara Brooke


So, August was kind of a light reading month, and I spent much of those 31 days preoccupied with writing a novella that will be coming out in October (stay tuned for details!). Not listed here is a book I read at the start of August, a collection of short stories and non-fiction essays by Lauren Beukes. The publisher, Tachyon Publications, asked me to blurb this one, and I was honored to do so. You can pre-order Lauren's book, Slipping: Stories, Essays, & Other Writing at Amazon right now (and even read my blurb!) ahead of its November 29, 2016 release.


That's all for now. I'm off to do some edits on next month's release and sign-off approval for my first audiobook.  Happy reading!
