The epic sale of beloved SFF books is back in 2023! What is this, you ask? Well, I’m glad you asked. Between August 18th and 22nd, you can get over 50 indie SFF titles for a mere $0.99! That sounds like a good deal to me. You’d be crazy to miss out!
As we are celebrating Wyrd & Wonder Month, so if you are currently on the hunt, can we interest you with these 25 underrated self-published fantasy books? We promise they are totally worth your time!
Guess what, Team Queen’s Book Asylum is back for SPFBO 9! We could have stopped and quit while on top (Small Miracles, our champion won SPFBO 8!), but we enjoy ourselves way too much, and we are not quite done with bringing the pandamonium to your doors. I’m sure some of you despair over this news, but that’s life for you. As some would say: suck it up, buttercup!
My Challenge Check-In for April 2023 in which I talk about how I did with my reading challenges this month, and offer you 5-5 recs for 2 The Sound of Madness Reading Challenge prompts. Which are Teenage Dirtbag and You Look Better When I’m Drunk.
Stuck in the Pages is a brand new feature I created for the Asylum 5th anniversary bonanza, and I honestly had a lot of fun with it. I didn’t plan to create anything new, hell knows I have enough as it is, but since this happened, Bjørn Larssen, the author of historical fiction, and Norse mythology-inspired Fantasy novels, officially introduces you to it!
You know how the saying goes, “new year, new me”. Apparently, that’s true for book covers as well, as Bjørn Larssen decided to give a brand new cover to his debut novel, Storytellers. And the Asylum is excited to show it to you!
I hope you missed us, because the good news is, Team Queen’s Book Asylum is back for SPFBO 8 after taking a well-deserved break! This time I have a whole new team with one fellow returning judge, and a slightly updated process which I’ll explain in this post below. So, come and meet Team Queen’s Asylum and check out what we are sending into the Cover Contest!
April’s edition features snarky Norse retellings, cozy haunted houses, and powerful reworkings of the classic canon.
Throughout the year, I’ll dig deeper into the prompts of The Sound of Madness Reading Challenge 2022. I’ll talk about the music, the prompt and recommend about 5 books I think would go well with it. The prompt of the week: The Stories We Tell Ourselves.
As they say, there is always a first time for everything. After nearly 4 years of blogging, it’s time for my first ever book tag post! As we all know I’m a music junkie and I’m also a 90s kid, so I just knew if I only ever did one book tag post, it has to be the 90s Music Edition one. With music videos for extra fun!
