Featuring Author Kat Hausler’s What I Know About July!
Title: What I Know About July Author: Kat Hausler Genre: Mystery, Suspense, Contemporary Women Release Date: October 31, 2023
Simon Kemper, recently out of rehab and experiencing moderate success with his band in Berlin, is haunted by a stalker. July appears at every show, sends numerous postcards to his label, and behaves as if she knows him well. Like she owns him. When she suddenly vanishes after one of his performances, Simon becomes the prime suspect. His initial goal is to clear his name, but as he searches for July, he begins a deeper psychological journey. The threads of July’s disappearance turn out to be tangled into every corner of Simon’s life: a trusted band member, a tenuous new love interest, a resentful ex, and the self he’s supposedly left behind. Narcissistic, insecure, and consummately relatable, Simon is the anti-hero of his own life—trying to want to be better; hoping that’s enough.
First of all. JUMPER is coming out November 14. ARCs are going to be available through Booksprout and my ARC Team starting on Friday the 3rd. Reviews will be due November 21. My beta readers all thought that this was a great but different read than all the other Somnolence books. It’s definitely a much darker tale, but I loved JUMPER’s backstory it begged to be told.
My life is a bit on end right now. My husband is a doer not a sit on his hand and think about things kind of guy. We talked for about five minutes regarding moving, and then the next thing I knew there was a sign on my front yard, a realtor in my home, and a scheduled open house.
To say I’m unprepared is an understatement. I’m releasing a book for goodness sakes. It’s not time to upheave my life and sell our house out from under me. And better yet than all that? He is sending me alone to buy a house across the country. His theory is that he bought this
So, bookwise, my plans for releases are all shook up and spun sideways. I was planning for a early January release of a YA/NA dystopian and I’m unsure when that is coming. I will be putting out a Somnolence novella definitely for February. But that is all I know right now. Nix’s book is out there in the wind. I don’t have a date for you. Not even the suggestion of one.
What I do have dates on are signings. Here are the places I will be and when.
Title: Veils and Vampires (Vampires of the Daemonverse #2) Author: Cee Bee Genre: Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance Release Date: October 14, 2023
Highlander meets Twilight with a dash of Fifty Shades of Grey in this vampire romantasy…
Caelin MacGregor is an ancient king with a new love
Ages ago, I ruled a clan of vampire raiders. We were allies to the Vikings and enemies of the Rus. That life ended when the bloodkin plague wiped out all our women, including my beloved vampire bride, Elisava. A thousand years have passed. My heart remains empty. Then I see a human woman named Lexa. For the first time in ages, I feel true desire, respect and love. Could Lexa actually be a lost bloodkin lady … or is she a horrible trick from Pyri, the ancient fire goddess of the Rus raiders?
Lexa Uznetsov has a plan
To save my sister, Sash, I took on my father’s debt to Konstantin the Rus, leader of the New York Bratva. As a result, my life became a never-ending (and incredibly illegal) stakeout for the mob. After years of scheming, I’ve finally come up with a solid escape plan: find all three pieces of the infamous Veil Pendant. Once I reassemble this magical item, I’ll have the power to cure my sister … as well as the ability to say buh-bye to Konstantin. Sure, legends warn that reforming the Veil Pendant may bring about some nastiness called Pyri’s doomsday. Yet if it saves Sash, I’m willing to risk anything.
“Veils and Vampires is amazing! It has action and adventure and a little spicy. Enough that it makes you drool and want more. Honestly a totally different take on modern day vampire soulmates. I devoured this book in one sitting.” – Teresa, Goodreads

The men in the secret society known as the Lords think they rule the world. And in a way, they do. Each has sold their soul to the devil at a young age in exchange for power and wealth. Like anything else, they have different levels of success. The more they’re willing to serve, the more power they have. Among them are the Spade brothers, who run Carnage. It’s where the Lords who have not held up their oath go to live out the rest of their lives in shackles.
Tucked away from the world as if they never existed.
I VOW. YOU VOW. WE VOW.
I once belonged to a Lord—Saint Beckham Carter. Although nothing was holy about him, I still kneeled as if he could grant me eternity in a world where only evil existed.
At the time, I willingly vowed to be his and allowed him to share me with his “brothers.” But things changed. And what I thought couldn’t get any better got exceptionally worse. So I did the only thing I could and ran from him, knowing I could never return.
Now he’s found me and dragged me back to his hell, where he will make me his pet. The world already thinks I’m dead, so no one will miss me. And I’m just another name on a long list of those who will never know freedom.
It’s so dark in his life that his Claimed mates may never get out.
Becca Grimm is a Legion demon and has known one thing since she was a young girl: she would have a breeding pact. That her breeding pact partner turned out to be her Tether was a dream come true until he broke her heart, and then she wanted to break his face until he crawled back to kiss her feet.
But Jumper’s world is darker and more secretive than he’s ever let on. Even with her guardian-Tethers, at her side, she can barely navigate it. And finding her way back to the light is impossible in a world where wickedness reigns.
Becca can’t say no to the things Jumper demands of her. She loves the things that Tobin wants from her. And she can’t look away from the things she sees Jumper and Crux do together.
Content Warning to come.
It’s recommended that you read the series in order, beginning with RAIDEN.

I was at Books At The Beach for the third time this year. I can’t begin to express how much I love this event. The hostesses are just amazing, and the volunteers are amazing. It’s always pleasant and successful. Not to mention that I get to see friends and familiar faces that bring joy to my heart. Catching up with all these long-lost peeps is part of all the fun.
Not to mention, this year, I had not just my husband with me but my PA, Chanel Johnson. She kept me on the straight and narrow and was terrific with the people I couldn’t entertain while I was blessed to have a small crowd. She also held my books when I shipped two seventy-pound boxes her way until I got there.
I managed an incredible book and swag haul. Please note my goodies in my pics. They won’t be doing the event next year, but I look forward to 2026. If there is a sign-up, consider me signed up.
