Wolfesong by TJ Klune

I don't even like shapeshifter books. In fact I usually dislike them so much that almost nothing can talk me into reading one at this point. So this sat on my kindle for months and months. And then the other day I started reading it. And Ox got me on page one. And Joe got me on whatever page it was that they met. I couldn't stop reading, even though I was fairly sure I knew where this was going.

Twilight fan fiction. Because there are some parts that feel like Twilight (of which I read the first 3 books even though I hated all of them)... but even those parts are not lame. In fact, those parts of the book make fun of itself for feeling like Twilight, so I forgave it that immediately.

It has a sweeping, epic feel.

Ox and Joe spend way too much time apart, and I hate that.

Still could not stop reading. Every time I picked it up, I got sucked right in and hated to put it down. I am definitely experiencing book hangover, like nothing is going to be able to hold my attention for awhile, which is okay, because I have stuff to get done.

So. If you like M/M romance, and even if you're not real into werewolves, try this one. It's a terrific story.

SM Johnson - NEW RELEASE!~ Nervous

Hello my lovely Darklings!

Nervous, my first book ever with pre-orders, went live on October 1st, and I have been remiss in not giving you a COUPON yet.

I am sorry, sorry, sorry, and fixing that now!

So just for visiting my blog, you can get a free copy of Nervous from Smashwords until October 14th, 2017.

Click HERE and enter coupon code JF37Y at checkout.

Nervous is book 6 of the Dungeon Series, but this one can potentially stand on its own, so if even if you haven't read books 1 - 5, you should still read Nervous.

Hugs and smudges,

~SM Johnson

PS. Reviews and word of mouth are the most helpful tools to authors in getting the word out about a new book, so please take a moment to write a few words wherever you prefer to!

SM Johnson ~ Release of Nervous and Dungeon paperbacks!

Hello my Darklings!

I am busy, busy, busy these days, and am no longer spending time on marketing, but never fear, I am always still writing! The marketing and self-promotion part of being an independent author was never my favorite.

There was a moment when I thought I'd increase marketing and send out newsletters and such, but... nah. There are only so many hours in a day/week/month, and I have no interest spending them on activities I don't enjoy.

I am a storyteller, not a sales person.

So in story news, Nervous, the sixth book in the Dungeon Series, is all set for release on October 1, 2017. It's finished and off to beta readers, and after a final edit, it will be yours! Please feel free to pre-order ($2.99) for your kindle at Amazon, or for any e-reader device at Smashwords.

I've never bothered with pre-orders before, so feel free to wow me with pre-order sales!

In other news, I am creating paperbacks for the Dungeon series, one at a time and somewhat slowly, but I am trying for one book per month. So if you've been wanting to dog-ear pages and store them on a bookshelf, you'll be delighted. So far I've got books one and two done, and the paperbacks look FABULOUS.

In final news... I have closed my Goodreads group, DarkSafe. It was no longer an active group, and if it were, I wouldn't have time to moderate or participate, which is sad, yes, but nothing in this life ever stays the same, right? It's why we have stories and ideas for even more stories.
