Woohoo! I know it seems like it’s taken forever for me to get this book out (at least it seems that way to me) but despite some delays, it’s coming. January Snow will be available on Kindle on January 30th, and paperback copies will be available soon after. And now– FINALLY– a cover reveal!
January Snow has blood on her hands.
Never the obedient daughter of her father’s expectations, she finally thinks she’s found a way to earn his respect. But when her plan to take down her father’s rival ends in disaster, her stepmother is convinced that the tragedy that ensues is January’s fault- and she might not be wrong. Maria d’Angelo has spent her life communicating with the spirits, and now she’s certain they’re telling her one thing: January needs to die.
David Brendan has been searching for his brother’s killer, but the only witness to Jon’s death is the runaway daughter of one of the city’s most notorious crime bosses. Suddenly thrust from his high society world into one of mob violence, shadowy spiritualism, and political conspiracy, he realizes that he’s not the only one looking for January Snow- and if he doesn’t find her first, she won’t be the only one who ends up dead.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in getting a free copy of for review purposes, continue reading down below!
How long does the review have to be? Just a few sentences! It can certainly be longer than that, but just listing a few things that you liked about the book is more than sufficient.
Where should I post the review? Do I have to have a blog? No, you don’t! Since Amazon is my main retailer, I do ask that you post a review there; however, reviews cross-posted to Goodreads or on a blog (if you have one) are also super helpful! It’s all about getting the word out.
Does the review have to be positive? No, not at all: all I ask is that you be honest (and polite).
Do I have to write a negative review? If you don’t like the book, but also don’t feel comfortable writing a review–you don’t have to. I add this because I’ve been in this position before, and it’s not fun. If I send you a copy, I’m not going to track you down and make sure you write a review; it’s on an honor system. Of course, please don’t use that as an excuse just to get a free book without writing a review just because you don’t feel like it! Reviews help to sell books, and for an indie author on a tight budget, they can really make a difference.
Do I have to read it in ebook form? Sadly, I simply can’t afford to send reviewers a paperback copy, so I’m only able to offer you a mobi, epub, or pdf file.
When should my review be posted? I’d love it if reviews could be posted by the end of February, but I do realize that’s a short month. Reviews within a month or two are what would really help me out.
~A little bit about the book~
How long is it? about 48,000 words–it’s basically a novella that’s almost a novel.
Is there any magic? Yes. Some of my fairy tale retellings (like With Blossoms Gold) have no magic, but January Snow does have a supernatural element. My antagonist, Maria, is a self-proclaimed medium, so there are scenes involving seances and reading cards. While I keep it a bit vague, stuff definitely does happen that has no “scientific” explanation. It’s not an overwhelming aspect of the book, but it is *there.*
Is this book “clean?” I would say so: like all of my books, it has no language or sexual content. However, it is a bit darker and there is a bit more violence. While I didn’t want to totally sugarcoat my characters or their decisions, I also know I have a lot of younger readers, so I tried to keep that in mind. It is a bit darker than my other works, though!
Is it a romance? Actually, no. There’s pretty much no romance in it, so if that’s what you are looking for you may be disappointed. On the other hand, if you’ve been trying to find a non-romance fairy tale retelling, this may be just what you’re looking for!
