My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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!

Gary the Four Eyed FairyGary the Four Eyed Fairy by Frank Mundo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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!

Coffee over Indie Books – The fear of Independent Publishing

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.

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.

A Simple Guide: Bitcoin – Released!

A Simple Guide: Bitcoin

I love computers, anyone who knows me can attest to that. With my first initial introduction to bitcoin back in 2015, I decided to take my experience and write a simple guide to Bitcoin and how it actually works.

 

So, I am happy to introduce to you A Simple Guide: Bitcoin.

The purpose of this book is not to teach you how to get rich quick or give you a technical breakdown of the entire bitcoin exchange and market but to provide you a simple and easy-to-read introduction to the entire concept. I cover multiple things from the dangers of bitcoin to how it actually works (without the complicated cryptographic algorithms).

Interested? Why not grab a copy then! If you want to keep up with other works that I’ve done or future projects, you can do so by joining my spam-free newsletter that comes out once a month.
