Le Mystère du Kinétoscope pre-order

I found out this morning that Le Mystère du Corbeau (The Mystery of Nevermore) published in French by Reines-Beaux, was their #8 best seller in the 2019 catalogue! I am so thankful to French readers who took a chance on Snow & Winter and an author who was new to their community.

And speaking of, Le Mystère du Kinétoscope (The Mystery of the Moving Image) is now available for pre-order! Release with Reines-Beaux, April 29, 2020.

: C’est l’été à New York, Sebastien Snow et Calvin Winter franchissent une nouvelle étape dans leur relation : ils emménagent ensemble.
Ce qui aurait dû être une semaine de célébrations s’achève brusquement lorsqu’un mystérieux paquet arrive à l’Emporium.
À l’intérieur se trouve un kinétoscope Thomas Edison inventé par le grand-père du cinéma moderne, W.K.L Dickson, accompagné par... des images d’un meurtre vieux de cent ans.
Sébastien résiste à l’envie de faire des recherches, même si le coupable est mort depuis longtemps et qu’il semble n’y avoir aucun danger en vue.
Mais après une série de cambriolages Sebastien se rend vite compte que résoudre ce meurtre pourrait le mener au voleur.

November & December Reads

All right. Better late than never, wrapping up some of the reading and reviewing of November and December, 2019! I wasn't as consistent as I wanted to be last year, but overall, I'd give my efforts a strong B! I plan to do much better in 2020.

This little experiment really rejuvenated my skills for reviewing. I know, from an author's point of view, how important reviews are for a book's livelihood, but also for readers, the trust we put in each other when searching out a new story to devour. So I hope the reviews I've written over the year have been beneficial for each side of the coin. But most importantly, I was reminded of how much fun reading is and how critical it is to sometimes stop writing, stop administration, and just fall into a good story!

As before, below are the BookBub links to my reviews, but they are mirrored on my Goodreads page, if you prefer that website. Happy reading! Let's rock 2020!
