July Scribbler’s Unboxing

Hey BookWyrms,

It’s that time of month again… Here’s what was in the July Scribbler’s box!

We had a surprise double themed box this month, and I can’t wait to dive into these books. Andre Mayne’s The Girl Beneath the Sea teaches us about conflict while Abigail Owen creates some steamy chemistry in The Rogue King. I haven’t had a chance to read either of these books yet, but they are high on my TBR pile and I’ll be sure to let you know what I thought once I’m done.

The Girl Beneath the Sea

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

For a Florida police diver, danger rises to the surface in an adventurous thriller by the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Naturalist.

Coming from scandalous Florida treasure hunters and drug smugglers, Sloan McPherson is forging her own path, for herself and for her daughter, out from under her family’s shadow. An auxiliary officer for Lauderdale Shores PD, she’s the go-to diver for evidence recovery. Then Sloan finds a fresh kill floating in a canal—a woman whose murky history collides with Sloan’s. Their troubling ties are making Sloan less a potential witness than a suspect. And her colleagues aren’t the only ones following every move she makes. So is the killer.

Stalked by an assassin, pitted against a ruthless cartel searching for a lost fortune, and under watch within her ranks, Sloan has only one ally: the legendary DEA agent who put Sloan’s uncle behind bars. He knows just how deep corruption runs—and the kind of danger Sloan is in. To stay alive, Sloan must stay one step ahead of her enemies—both known and unknown—and a growing conspiracy designed to pull her under.

The Rogue King

Kasia Amon is a master at hiding. Who―and what―she is makes her a mark for the entire supernatural world. Especially dragon shifters. To them, she’s treasure to be taken and claimed. A golden ticket to their highest throne. But she can’t stop bursting into flames, and there’s a sexy dragon shifter in town hunting for her…
As a rogue dragon, Brand Astarot has spent his life in the dark, shunned by his own kind, concealing his true identity. Only his dangerous reputation ensures his survival. Delivering a phoenix to the feared Blood King will bring him one step closer to the revenge he’s waited centuries to take. No way is he letting the feisty beauty get away.
But when Kasia sparks a white-hot need in him that’s impossible to ignore, Brand begins to form a new plan: claim her for himself…and take back his birthright.

As for special gifts, I’m pretty excited about these. I received an awesome notepad for brainstorming characters, an adorable iron on patch, and a copy of Andrew Mayne’s The Cure for Writer’s Block. For this months bonus gift, I ordered my first set of fountain pens. I’ve only messed with them long enough to write a short grocery list, but I really like the feel of them so far. I’ll be using them to take all of my notes for editing prep, so I’ll be sure to let you all know if they really are easier to use for longer writing sessions.

As always, leave me a comment, BookWyrms! What are you reading this month? What’s your favorite writing utensil? Have you used a fountain pen before? Sign up for the BookWyrm Cove newsletter to never miss a post. Happy reading, BookWyrms!
