We made it to another Friday and it’s time to celebrate.
It’s the first full weekend of 2023 and it couldn’t have come soon enough for us at IHS Headquarters. With the launch of the 2023 IHS Reading Challenge and trying to wrap our heads around writing 2023 instead of 2022, we’re mentally fried. But, when we read kind messages from readers, (like the one included in the pet of the week section below), it makes all the stress of running this website worth it.
Now for today’s Friday Feels.

5 Random Things is our way of helping readers to get to know authors all the while having a bit of fun.
Here are five random facts about Rachel Lacey.
1. I lived in the Netherlands for two years as a child, and now I’m not allowed to donate blood because apparently anyone who lived in Europe in the 80s might have Mad Cow Disease.
2. I don’t have any tattoos (yet) or piercings. I used to have my ears and navel pierced, but my body rejects basically all metal, so I eventually had to give them all up.
3. I don’t like coffee.
4. There are many authors who got their start writing fanfic and later made the jump to publishing original books. Well, I did it the other way around! I had been publishing books for years when I discovered and fell in love with fanfic. Fan fiction actually helped me to rediscover the joy of writing after I’d hit a really low place in my published career, and now I come back to it whenever I need to remember that feeling.
5. I love all animals, even the ones some people find creepy! The only exceptions for me are parasites – gross.
Have you read Rachel’s latest She’ll Steal Your Heart?
Here are my two babies. The brindle is Kenya and the blonde is Little Sister. Bandy is a dedicated reader, who says, “I love this page it helps me find 80% of my books. My first lesfic book was in 2020 by Monica McCallan and forever changed my life!”
That’s all for today.
Wishing all of you a wonderful Friday!
