Light Novel Debuts For April 2020

I’m doing something a little different this month.

Okay, I confess, I’m doing something lazier.

I always do a video on my YouTube channel where I discuss the monthly debuts and then I do a written post here on ELN. This month, I thought I’d embed the video and then just include the blurbs about the books and their sales info.

Do you hate this? Like it? Don’t care. Let me know. TBH I’m trying to cut down on work duplication and thought I’d give this a try.
