Every craft magazine will tell you that part of being an author is reading. Read everything you can get your hands on whether it is within your genre or not. There’s a step they always forget to mention, though: Spreading the word, helping another author promote their work.
That said, if you enjoy paranormal and magical realism, if you enjoyed the Vegas Fae series by Tom Keller, I’ve got a book to recommend.
Katie Salidas’ “Agents of A.S.S.E.T.,” Book 1, A Weapon of Magical Destruction.
Magic is not a game. It’s real, deadly, and inescapable. The world is full of magical creatures and artifacts. The Anonymous Supernatural Security and Elimination Taskforce (A.S.S.E.T.) is on the front line, maintaining the balance of power, ensuring humans remain safely oblivious to the dangerous magic around them.
Sage Cynwrig knows her way around a pair of twenty-sided dice, and has forgotten more spells than you’ll ever know. But when her mother is
killed by a weapon of magical destruction, fantasy merges into a strange new reality. Her birthmark morphs into the Tree of Life, her boss goes full troll (warts and all), vampires start hitting on her, and shadows do more than just follow silently.
Had Sage been warned about her special lineage, before her mother’s murder, she might have agreed to join A.S.S.E.T. When agent Grey Maddox shows up to recruit Sage, filling her head with stories of an ancient race of people uniquely gifted to withstand the forces of magic, she dismisses him as a fraud. The truth about Sage’s lineage comes crashing down around her when a supernatural pick-up artist tries to kill her. Bearing the mark of the Tree of Life makes Sage special while also putting a target on her head.
With the weapon still at large, and strange Fae creatures popping up all around her, figuring out who to trust is priority number one. Only then can Sage find the key to neutralizing the weapon before its power is unleashed again.
