Amazon Kindle’s new Vella platform hasn’t had much advertising, but it’s becoming popular with readers who like their stories in bite-sized episodes like a television series. Because it’s still new, it might be challenging to pick out the authors with good updating track records, unique stories, and captivating characters—especially in non-romance genres.
Don’t get me wrong. There’s nothing wrong with romance, but what if you want fantasy or young adult? Crime and suspense? They’re out there, but they’re also hit or miss.
Macchiatos, Faerie Princes, and Other Things That Happen at Midnight might be a long title, but it’s a great, clean, young adult fantasy with more twists and surprises than a birthday party. In fact, this story is like a gift for Crystal Crawford’s loyal readers. It’s swoonworthy, intricately crafted, and keeps you wanting more. Okay, maybe wanting more is a little understated. Some episodes make you want to scream into the abyss as you wait for the next update.
But isn’t that half the fun?
If you’re interested in Vella, give it a try! The first three episodes of any book are FREE. Plus, Amazon gives you 200 tokens for free! By the time you read the free chapters and apply free tokens, you’ll be so absorbed in the story you won’t want to stop reading!
