Coming Attractions, May 2016

Ohhhhhhhhh myyyyyy.

Here we are getting ready for MAY. And hopefully you’re enjoying your May flowers in this part of the world and doing whatever autumn prep you need to be doing in other parts.

George

BUT! No matter where you are in the world, there are BOOKS to be had and BOOKS to be read! And we here at Women and Words hope that we can help you with that.

As a reminder, we do not have eyes all over the place, so we do miss things. To that end, if you’re an author/publisher/reader who knows about a book coming out that’s not on this list, drop us a line at the Contact link above (see it up there? Cryptically called “contact”?). We’ll need the book title, the publisher, when it’s coming out (or when it was published) and either a buy link or a link for more info about the book.

All rightie. Time to frolic! Below, books for doing just that.

  1. I love these lists of new books. I’ve never heard of some of these publishers so it’s wonderful to be able to explore& discover new authors.

  2. So many books. Just when I thought I figured out all the books I want your list drags me in for just one more I didn’t know about. As far as Indie authors though you guys should probably check in on Eliza Lentzski. She has been teasing a May release for book 4 of her “Winter Jacket” series for months now.

    1. Hi, there–We do include her work if we know she’s got a new one coming out. I checked her Amazon page and haven’t found any information about Book 4. We’ll keep our eyes open and I’ll drop her a line to find out when she’s planning to release that. Thanks for the heads up!
