At the end of every month, while the awards voting is happening, I always avoid posting new reviews out of fairness to the authors featured. They wouldn't be eligible for the Readers Choice Awards since their review posts after voting starts, and it seems silly to have a week with no reviews when there are SO MANY great stories out there!
I also thought it'd be fun to feature other genres of romance that we don't normally review here on GraveTells.

Indie-Pendence Week Giveaway (US/Int): Let the celebration begin!
Here at GraveTells, we do not discriminate against self-pubbed and small press authors. We believe that a story can be just as good when it's handled personally as it can when run through the gamut of traditional publishing. Now, don't get us wrong, traditional houses turn out some great stories and we're fangirls of... well, more than we should probably admit to... franchises distributed by the big name publishers. It's a tough industry to break into, though, and many authors have turned to self-publishing or to the smaller e-publishers that have developed since the e-book revolution.
