Sparrow Squadron Now Available on NetGalley

Calling all bookbloggers and book reviewers! My debut novel, Sparrow Squadron, is listed on NetGalley for the next month as I try out this service for the first time.

If you’re not familiar with it, the novel is inspired the real-life overlooked stories of the Soviet Union’s women fighter pilots who went into combat against Nazi Germany. Here’s the one-liner:

Her homeland invaded, 16-year-old Aelya Makarova fights back in the deadly skies over WWII Russia. But enemy aces aren’t the only foes she needs to face.

Because I’ve waffled over using NetGalley before, I’m also going to use the results as an opportunity to write about what can be a very important tool for indie authors to get the word out about their work. So for the first time in a while, I’m getting work done both as a blogger and an author!

If you’re a bookblogger, book reviewer or just plain like reading free ebooks, you can go and check it out at the link here, or click on the banner below.

A Review of Sparrow Squadron on Discovering Diamonds

My debut novel Sparrow Squadron has just been featured on Discovering Diamonds, the historical fiction reviews website.  Here’s a highlight:

Insightful, layered and suspenseful, this is very enjoyable and a good set-up for the sequel.

Yay!

You can read the full review here.

Thanks to Christoph and Helen at Discovering Diamonds for taking the time to feature my book.

Guess I better get working on that sequel!


Sparrow Squadron: Out Now in Paperback

And you know what that means…

Uh, well, I won’t quite be back to regular programming just yet. I still need to work on e-book channels outside of Amazon. But for the most part, work on Sparrow Squadron is switching over to longer time-frame advertising campaigns, so no more frenzied spam bursts. That means an uptick in properly bookish and historical blog posts.

What to look for soon:

  • The life and times of Sophie Blanchard, the solo woman aviator and one of the first military aviators.
  • Things I would do differently: lessons learned in the mad dash to publish my first book.
  • Me in Book Characters Tag: A getting to know me post that will also get me back into the bookish swing of things (Thanks to Kristin Kraves Books and Emma @ A Dreamer’s Library for the idea.)

Sorry for the tease. Hope to see you back with some real content soon!
