Titles that are about to be released, a free fantasy short story and a couple of cozy mysteries

Just a reminder that Shiloh Walker's "Hunter's Rise" will be released on April 3 (announcement) and that Dee Davis' Deadly Dance blog post will be available on April 1 (no fooling, lol).

I was fortunate enough to win Michael J. Sullivan's Heir of Novron on Goodreads and the author graciously contacted me and offered the prequels so that I wouldn't be lost...which is amazing that someone would know how obsessive I am about trying to provide a decent review...I usually do try to read the prior books in a series but sometimes I just can't get it done in the time I have before the review itself is due.  This read, unfortunately, is going to take a bit of time because I have a few to get read before these...and I keep getting distracted by new releases, lol.  However, for those of you who are fantasy readers, there is a free short story, The Viscount and the Witch, set in the same world that will introduce the characters.  The flavor reminds me of Violette Malan's works (which I adore) and the short story is indeed that, short, but there is also an excerpt from the first book in the series...Theft of Swords.  The Amazon link

I am also working my way through some cozy mystery titles that I am reviewing for a web publication called Kings River Life Magazine.  Once I figure out all of the intricacies of publishing a review with them, I will post but so far Casey Daniels' Wild Wild Death was an entertaining addition to the Pepper Martin series and I have been introduced to a new-to-me author, Heather Blake, whose It Takes a Witch was a very whimsical murder mystery that displayed a lot of creativity. many books, so little time!
