Admittedly, I’m only telling you about upcoming publications from series and/or authors whom I’ve already read. Fortunately, I’ve read a lot!

Consider tweeting this “Upcoming Publications” notice to friends who might be interested.

Be warned. While the hyperlinked titles take you to Goodreads, clicking the covers takes you to Amazon.com and will function as a purchase link for which I would receive a referral fee.
