#SPFBO 2018: The Finals


You may have noticed if you visit this blog that the first stage of the Self Published Fantasy Blog Off concluded at the end of 2018.  Three hundred books have been narrowed down to ten finalists.  One each selected by the ten judges/team of judges taking part.  You can check out my finalist here.  And here is my post that also outlined the final nine and the runners up.

So, firstly feast your eyes on these lovelies: all the finalists in one beautiful display:

Check out this link to find out more about the competition and the scoreboard.

I’ve randomly chosen the order of my books and the first book I will be reading is: Out of Nowhere by Patrick LeClerc.  I’ve put the description below for information:

outofnowhereAn urban fantasy, pacy, funny and compelling to the last page…

Healer Sean Danet is immortal—a fact he has cloaked for centuries, behind army lines and now a paramedic’s uniform. Having forgotten most of his distant past, he has finally found peace—and love.

But there are some things you cannot escape, however much distance you put behind you.

When Sean heals the wrong man, he uncovers a lethal enemy who holds all the cards. And this time he can’t run. It’s time to stand and fight, for himself, for his friends, for the woman he loves. It’s time, finally, for Sean to face his past—and choose a future.

A story of love, of battle—and of facing your true self when there’s nowhere left to hide.

    The main character being a paramedic is something of a “new entry” for the standards of Urban Fantasy, and I like the idea: looking forward to your review of this one! 🙂
