Like indie books? Please spread the word about your favorite indie books and authors.
If you are reading this post you must like indie books. I’m sharing it to help spread the word about independent authors and publishers. I hope you will too.
For the first time, the podcast program Just the Right Book will mention an indie book. After a two week period of submissions in November, the program announced readers may vote for their favorite book from among 23 submissions, including Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia.
On December 15, the book with the most votes should receive exposure in an upcoming episode. See complete list below.
A spokesperson for the program explained, “we’re going to have a segment on a future episode with Roxanne talking about the winning book for a given amount of time, but I assure you it’ll be prominent within the episode. Depending on Roxanne’s schedule that day, we may also call the author to speak on the book a bit, but we couldn’t promise that officially as part of the “shout-out” because of her busy schedule around this time of year and some other factors. We also can’t give out stats on our number of listeners, sorry!”
The podcast is hosted by Roxanne Coady, owner of independent bookstore RJ Julia Booksellers in Madison, Connecticut. Cast your vote by midnight December 14, 2017 for Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia (or any indie title from the list below) at http://bookpodcast.com/poll

Should be entertaining to anyone who likes an investigative adventure with a light fantasy flare
When Marshal Danielle Metreaux and her junior partner, Sebastien, answer a call to investigate a student’s death at the Academie Superieur de Goin, (Sebastien’s upper class private school alma mater) she was as unprepared for the uncaring defensive posture of the school administrator (an old friend of Sebastien’s family) as she was the free use of narcotics among the students. With nothing to indicate a homicide, they must assume the death was the result of accident related to the student’s use of drugs.
However, when other Weeia began to act strangely in a manner that would reveal their presence to normal humans, Danni and Sebastien must intensify the investigation. At a loss to explain the phenomena, they must enlist the aid of the CUT Team to resolve issues until a full time command center is organized with Danni’s boss, Francois, in command. When Danni is side-lined during the investigation with a personal loss, Sebastien steps in with the help of a Syrian chemist and provides the expertise need to allow Danni to figure out what is causing the disruption among the Weeia.
Once again, we have Danni Metreaux who is beginning to feel increasingly comfortable in Paris, and who is more comfortable with Sebastien as well. Her boyfriend, Iaen, is a big help to her adjustment, but is not destined to be a permanent part of her life. The intensity of the crisis for Weeia forces Francois to become more active, and Danni who has come to the attention of the CUT team leader may have a chance for advancement outside Paris.
As are the other Weeia books by Elle Boca, Smells Like Weeia Spirit should be entertaining to anyone who likes an investigative adventure with a light fantasy flare. 4-Stars

Boca really hit her writing stride with this book because it was just amazing
Ah yes more Weeia! I will always love getting back into this magical world. It never gets old. Danni is still my favorite character and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. She’s such a strong character that it’s hard not to be completely mesmerized by everything she does.
Boca really hit her writing stride with this book because it was just amazing. Danni really seemed in her element and so much more comfortable with her job. She had her hands full in this one trying to stop mere mortals from discovering the existence of the weeia. No pressure Danni. I still adore seeing Paris through the scenes that Boca creates in excellent detail.
Sebastion is a great character too. He and Danni make a great team and they are always fun to read. They worked so well together it was like they were made for each other. All in all, this was a great installment to this series and I can’t wait to read more!
