Received this book for an honest review from Book Tasters. When I first got a copy of the Lilac Princess and the Blood King, I was not quite sure what I was expecting. The title had a very fantasy feel to it but the cover hinted at something science fiction. Upon delving in, I found the book quite enjoyable and interesting.
Without giving too much away, the story turned out to be an entertaining book about dragons and their relationship with humans in a direction that I have never seen before. It brought a blend of humor while showing that the world that Karen Greene has created is filled with more possibility that this book contains.
For dragon lovers and those who enjoy fantasy, I would recommend this book heartily!
I received a copy of Frank Mundo’s Four-Eyed Fairy Anthology collection from Booktasters for an honest review and I am happy to say that I was impressed with the story structure and unique ideas that he presented.
Each one of the twelve stories was carefully crafted and presented in a colorful way. My favorite was the “A Strong Independent Woman”. It was a great read and would recommend it to anyone else who would like fantasy!
Writer’s block refers to the condition of being unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing. To have ideas we are unable to adequately convey can be extremely frustrating for novice and veteran writers alike. The problem is that it’s often carelessly tossed around to cover a plethora of creative obstacles.
It all started with a comment from my wife who was going through Amazon. She was looking for a book for our boys and was a bit irritated that we couldn’t get an idea and that we should have ratings like fan fiction websites do. I thought it was a brilliant idea and decided to do some research and found fictionratings.com.
They have an MPAA like system that was pretty self-explanatory though most of the website was a single page. As I have wanted a rating system for my books so people know what they are getting into, I have decided to adopt the fiction rating system on my website.
For all the books, you will now be able to find out where they are sitting before you pick them up!

It had not taken Phasia long to get used to the unique sound the Icarus made as it moved through the void wrapped in a protective shell of real space. The FTL used warping technology that created a safe field inside while allowing the vessel to break the Einstein barrier of light speed.
Alone and in the lower aft section of the Tereshkova class command frigate, Phasia sat cross-legged on the steel-paneled floor staring out the large porthole that gave a view of the outside and the left pulse engine. They were presently cold having no need to run while traversing through warped space. She knew from experience they would be heated up when they got near exiting and that wouldn’t be for another two months.
Let’s face it. Any of us who have been in the indie publishing world long enough come across a meme or a saying about people who would instead buy a four dollar cup of coffee instead of an indie book. It’s a strange disconnect that does not seem to make sense. Well, in this blog post, I hope to put forward a theory why we are challenged the way we are. Of course, there isn’t a lot of empirical evidence, so the most of this theory is my own personal experience and extrapolating from it.
Science fiction is beautiful in how many times you can see something familiar, but it is fresh and new. This was the case when I got to read Simon Hayne’s soon to be released Alpha Minor, the second book in his new Harriet Walsh series.
Just a little while ago I was talking to my best friend Jessica Werner about the software that we use to write our novels. If you have been in the writing world long enough, you know there are quite a lot of options out there ranging from the simple pen and paper to the complicated and advanced Scrivener.
It dawned on me that I haven’t shared the program that I use to write my novels and novellas and why I like it. So, to rectify that mistake, here is my discussion and review of Ywriter6.
There. I said it. Words that, once spoke, make me exhausted and sick feeling. I feel like every ounce of creativity has been drained and then some. It had gotten so rough that I couldn’t even bring myself to look at the next story and even begin typing. This blog is a struggle to get done.
