Pre-order: The Western Witch and the Gauntleteers (The Western Witch Trilogy Book 1) by Sarah Howlett #fantasy

For fifteen years Bethany Western has kept the family witchcraft secret, but now she is moving to a school where everyone will know what she is.

Maybe having everyone know she is a witch won’t be such a terrible thing? Maybe, for the first time in her life, she’ll be free to be herself?

But when her new friends show her their strange gauntlets, Beth is drawn into a world of secrets, demons, and worst of all… boys.

The Prophecy (The Twins of Blood and Sand Trilogy Book 1) by @VictoriaLarque #fantasy

When the three gather again and the heavens darken, the jagged edge shall tear and bleed death upon the world.

Emotion equals death. This is the truth Nijsha grows up with. Imprisoned behind the jagged edge, her body and mind have been honed into a deadly weapon. Secretly, she learns about the world beyond in her dreams. After breaking the one rule her mother has taught her, she has to flee her home, leaving her brother behind and in the clutches of their people’s creator. The last god, Adum.

Embarking on a journey that will test the very fabric of her being, Nijsha finds unexpected, and unwilling, help in an assassin, who is her only hope at reaching her mother’s people.

Navigating an alien world she has only ever dreamed about, Nijsha slowly learns who she truly is. A truth that could mean her end, and that of the world.

Xtreme Manly Man Force of Intense Badassery by Kell Inkston #hilarious

Fountain of Testosterone (Xtreme Manly Man Force of Intense Badassery Book One)

They’re going to need a lot more than infinity gallons of blood for this one…

Rick lives up to his mercenary name – Ultra Death Graveman Death Death Death (UDGD), while his former partner-turned-adversary, HTO, seeks revenge for a perceived slight that launches both men down a path that neither may return from.

The quest is noble. A crusade intended for the manliest of men, set against the backdrop of evildoers, villains, and cutthroats…and those are the good guys. Allegiances are never sure on the road to absolute testosterone driven power – just as UDGD forms a band of “fierce” followers, doubts are raised and trusts are questioned. 

– A Swordsman that cannot stop screaming and lives off a diet of blood and meat.
– A rough and mysterious fencer that… actually now that you mention it, fights a WHOLE LOT like HTO…
– Some… Scientist dude that actually isn’t all that manly – come on now!
– But a Robot Man – whoa, now that’s more like it! This guy’s totally manly! Cool scythe, too!…

The bottom line in this fantasy, sci-fi satire is ‘cover your own ass’ – death is coming, and it may be yours.

Obliterate your fears – jump into the wild depths of Subspace to discover just how manly men can become!


This novel is satirical in nature – allow me to spread the jam out on the toast for you on this one:

This novel contains mature, “badass” material and themes that some readers will find highly offensive but mostly cool. Expect bad words said by grownups, potty words, blood, guts, and more than one reference to sexual bits, actions, and/or orientations, most of which will likely be used in derogatory or otherwise offensive manners. Social insult and generally offensive behavior is part of the subtext of this story. Begin this text with the expectation that big angry men are running to where you are right now to hurt your feelings, because they are. This is intended for audiences of sixteen years or older, though every human develops at different paces of tolerance. Sexuality, Ability, Ethnicity, Culture, and more are all on the chopping block in order to provide the most appropriately accurate “Subspace” experience as possible.

Use your own discretion.

You have been warned.
