YES, you read that right! My debut epic fantasy novel, The Vow That Twisted Fate, wins a spot in The Writer Community's 2022 book club, thanks to YOUR votes!
To say I was surprised when I woke up this morning is a massive understatement. There were 19 other books that were eligible for reader votes.
8 of those were written by authors I've admired for so long, that I was gobsmacked to even share a list with them (like the supremely talented Esme Carmichael, author of The End of Everything, and Rosalyn Brian, author of A Sea of Pearls and Leaves and The Crown of Bones).
Five indie books were voted into the 2022 book club, including:
-Matthew Romeo's The Maven Knight
-Elaine Debohun's All The Yellow Posies
-K.E. Andrews' The Assassin of Grins and Secrets
-Tenaya MKD's New Identity
Some of those books were already on my to-be-read list, so I'm thrilled to be able to read them.
Have you read any of these? Which one sounds most interesting to you?

Thank you so much for voting for The Vow That Twisted Fate! It is a greater honor than I can say!
