The Heck with July! Here Comes August with a lot of new books!

July is flying by and I have no idea where it went. We managed to hit the beach at least once though.  We drove over the bridge from Brooklyn to the Rockaways. We went to Jacob Riis State Park Beach..  Found a socially distant safe spot to park ourselves and spent a few hours soaking up the sun and the ocean breeze.

I’ve found a few new to me authors to add to the list this month and I hope you enjoy them.  I hope you and your family are all safe and sound and ready to start a new batch of books. LOL

As always, this is a multi-genre list. If you know an author who should be here just contact me on my FaceBook page with a message. But for now “I’ll See You in September” with October’s releases.
