October New Releases

Updated: Nov 4, 2021

It's a new month and you know what that means, a list of all the new releases coming out this month that are on my radar. This month there aren't too many books on my list, but they are rather spread out in terms of genre. We have the usual fantasy, but some horror, sci-fi, and even mystery as well.

If you are looking for more new releases, I would suggest checking out Book Birds list as well as Rob J. Hayes if you are looking for some self-published fantasy books.

Here we go!
