Free & Discounted Fantasy and Science Fiction!
I'm super stoked to announce that this Sunday kicks off a fantastic event, the 12 Days of Christmas SFF Blog Tour, featuring books by twelve talented science fiction and fantasy authors. Every day, stop by a different author’s blog and/or social media page to nab books and bookish delights. The goodies are available for THAT DAY ONLY, so take a look at the list below to know whose blog to visit on which day. Better yet, sign up for the authors' email lists to get an email reminder on the day that they host the event.

I also collected recommendations from my fellow authors and bookworms about SFF books that portray disabilities and chronic illness well.
The recommended books:
I write YA/adult fantasy & sci-fi that explores fantastic and interconnected worlds, with stories that burn through the darkest realities with hope and redemption.
