Fall is such a magic time of year, leaves begin to turn colors, high school football gets into full swing, the World Series starts to take shape, and world class athletes lace on skates and chase each other across sheets of ice while slapping a four-inch round of frozen vulcanized rubber off of the goal cross bar (Hockey is back!!).
Added this Fall to our Featured Lists, is Sports Fiction.
Currently I am an NHL orphan so in the spring with hockey playoffs looming, I turned my full attention to my local ECHL team, the kickass Fort Wayne Komets. After cheering them to a hard won Kelly Cup championship #LetsGoKomets , I felt unusually bereft for summer without my favorite sport. That is when I discovered Kat Obie and her fellow authors like Kendall Ryan, Jenny Redford, Elise Faber, and Piper Rayne and many others. They filled the void with hunky talented athletes and lovely leading ladies (who are often themselves talented athletes). Then there is (most importantly) brilliantly written hockey play and locker room antics (and ridiculously awesome team names) . Sure, along the way I also discovered more than a few fun reads featuring baseball and football. I have even heard rumors of soccer, golf, and basketball though I have yet to read any. I am forevermore hooked on sports romance and am excited to see it featured this month on IRWYW.
Not too surprisingly our other featured genres this month are Halloween, Paranormal, and Witches. Finally, we have our On The Blog and New in October lists to show off the exciting books being released this month. Look for curated affiliate book lists along with fun reviews, spotlights, and interviews showcasing this months features.
