The subject of this week's blog post here at Budden Book Reviews relates to the exciting events which have been happening in author Ashley Fontainne's world, especially in terms of her title, Ruined Wings.
I've been in touch with Ashley off and on for a few years, having become acquainted with her after reading the first title of her Eviscerating the Snake series, Accountable to None. I went on to read the remaining two titles of the series, Zero Balance and Adjusting Journal Entries, and even conducted an interview with her a few years ago.
Ashley Fontainne is an author whom I will definitely keep my eye on as she reaches new goals and attains new levels in her writing career. With a variety of genres to choose from, I'm sure you will find something that whets your reading appetite.
