CLFA is happy to announce that we will now be featuring book bombs, where we focus attention on lesser-known fiction authors who deserve to be better known. For the next two days (Monday, July 18 and Tuesday, July 19), please consider purchasing one or more of the books on this list. (Come on … You know you need a couple good reads for your vacation!) If your friend asks for a good book recommendation, send them a link to this page. If you think pop culture should better represent the voices of conservatives and libertarians, please help spread the word.

Reblogged this on Spin, strangeness, and charm and commented:
Looking for beach/vacation/downtime reads? The first CLFA Book Bomb features 19 books from fellow Conservative and Libertarian Fiction Alliance authors, 18 fiction and one nonfiction. Genres run the gamut: YA, historical fiction, thriller, offbeat detective fiction, science fiction, fantasy, dystopia, urban fantasy, romance with a twist (that’s me!), satire… You’re sure to find one or more books that are up your alley!
I am surprised by how many of these books I’ve read. I’ve bought all the books I can for now, I have to save up to neuter 2 of my cats who had 11 kittens between them. Plus I need a plumber and home heating for winter. So I will have to help out by tweeting about it.
Interesting (and unknown to me) books. Bookmarked for future reference (:
Nice list. I’ve read enough of the titles on it (and liked them) that I’ll certainly snag one of the unfamiliar titles to try.
Note to the Rachel Griffin series by Mrs. Wright: These are solid middle-school stories. If your yard ape, like mine, likes the Rick Riordan Percy Jackson books, they’ll get a kick out of these. They hit that sweet spot of cool world-building, exciting adventure, and humor.
