AVR News Update
The Saga of our Montana van continues. What would the news update be like without me reporting something to do with it, eh? A back tire sprung a slow leak and it took awhile for my husband to find it and plug it, the belt is squeaking something fierce and it shouldn't be and I've been back and forth with the insurance company about getting a rental when it goes in to be repaired from the damage done when we were rear ended. It's been a fun fun week. Not.

For good news, my kids brought home their quarter grades and they are doing very well. So...yay! They enjoyed listening to Poison Study, but instead of continuing with the Study series they first want to listen to the entire Dresden Files series. No hardship for me as that is one of my favorite series.

Also, my new job is with InD'tale Magazine. Yes, I review for them, but we now have a Critiquing Service for authors.  I could really use some extra cash. My husband works very hard, but when his hours were cut we lost a lot of OT income. Every little bit helps, so pass the word along, please. :)

This is AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.

I've read these and we've listened to Poison Study on audio, but my youngest son wanted to read them

Amazon Freebies
I did pick up a number of freebies this week, but I'm running behind. I'll see if I can make a post later in the week with just my freebies listed. Or maybe I'll just get them started in next week's draft. ;) However, here's some that were still free as of this posting.
Link will take you to Amazon. Please double check price before clicking your fast little finger.


  1. I thought about requesting Fine Young Gentlemen from NetGalley, but I just wasn't sure. I hope you like it. I'll be looking for reviews to see if it's worth buying.

    1. I should be reading it fairly soon. It sounds good. Hope it is. :)

  2. Great haul! Man that van is giving you a hard time. Have a great week!

    1. Thanks! And it is! I want to push it off a cliff, but make it look like an accident, so we can claim it. lol

  3. Car troubles are the worst, especially when they happen all at once. And good luck with the critiquing service, hope that works out well. Have a good week.

    1. Exactly! It was going along fine then bam!

      Thanks! I hope so, too. Have a great week!

  4. Your kids have excellent reading taste, um..shoot the van. I am curious about all the mysteries you have and look forward to the reviews! Enjoy your week my friend!

    1. I'm happy they like to read. We've listened to audios since they were very little, but we have a ginormous collection of books, too.

      Yes, yes, I agree. Shoot it. Unfortunately, I can't. *sigh*

      I seem to be on a run with mysteries lately. Funny how it goes in cycles. :)

  5. Great Haul! I've heard a lot of great things about the Magic Study Series.

    Here's my Book Haul:
