The Kaladin Book Soundtrack based on The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – Call To Action 

Sometimes, when you work in entertainment, you take the gigs that will feed you. Sometimes, you take the gigs that inspire you. Sometimes, the gig pays off. Rarely, a gig can change your life. The Kaladin book soundtrack (inspired by The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson) saved mine. Literally. None of us at The […]

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost – What Does It Mean?

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost – What Does It Mean? 

When Lord of the Rings enthusiasts are not burning wedding bands in fiery pits in their backyard—checking for Black Speech inscriptions—they are frequently found uttering the clever sayings of their favorite fantasy author. Who can blame them? Tolkien, a philologist by trade, is known for many wondrous, existential musings. Yet one proverb is clearly quoted […]

Agent Harry Illingworth Interview

Agent Harry Illingworth Interview 

You’ll recall, last month, I produced a little article about a big event – Fantasy in the Court. Now, being truthful, a lot of that was Harry Illingworth’s wonderful words. I merely sprinkled stardust around it and got a in a few photographs I’d taken. Harry has graciously agreed to dispense more of his wisdom […]

COVEN QUEEN by Jeramy Goble – Cover Reveal

COVEN QUEEN by Jeramy Goble – Cover Reveal 

I was so thrilled to finish my “family-friendly,” metaphysical, space-fantasy trilogy, The Akallian Tales, last year. But, towards the end, I struggled to focus a bit. A new idea kept poking at my brain, trying to steal my attention. I’d read books one and two of A Song of Ice and Fire previously, and had just […]

Keeping the Fun in Science Fiction – Guest Blog by Joseph Brassey

Keeping the Fun in Science Fiction – Guest Blog by Joseph Brassey 

Islands sit suspended in an endless heaven, drifting amidst clouds and storms, high above a distant abyss below. Cities crouch upon the edges of cliffs, their walls jutting out into the empty air, and enchanted skycraft hurtle through the heavens, their magnificent wings catching the light of sunsets as the blue-white glow of their exhaust […]

How To Self-Publish

How To Self-Publish 

This one has been bubbling up for a while… Over the last few months, various discussions have erupted around the subject of self-publishing, specifically how it should be done. There have also been a few blog posts on the subject. There’s been a lot of banter. Mostly friendly, but it has got heated in places. […]

How The Belgariad Taught Me To Write A Cyberpunk Dystopia – Guest Blog by Ferrett Steinmetz

How The Belgariad Taught Me To Write A Cyberpunk Dystopia – Guest Blog by Ferrett Steinmetz 

Full confession: I thought my new novel The Uploaded was a dystopian novel about the miseries that happen five hundred years after humanity perfects brain-uploading. But my publisher Angry Robot told me it was something different. “You wrote a cyberpunk family drama, Ferrett!” I looked up, baffled, from my chocolate milk – the only drink […]

Publishing and LGBT Erasure or My Issues with Robo-Boobs

Publishing and LGBT Erasure or My Issues with Robo-Boobs 

I always knew someone would tell me to add a Sexy Lady Robot to my book. When I first starting writing my novel, Echo of the Larkspur, I set out to write a story that was first and foremost about love. Love between a male human and an omnipotent, genderless robot that identified as male, […]

IT – 2017 Movie Review

IT – 2017 Movie Review 

This is barely a review. It’s a personal mind vomit of my thoughts after seeing IT for people who have either read the book and or seen the original miniseries, and I want to cover some of the differences and what I think worked and what didn’t. Anything too….spoilery will be near the end in […]

Cover Reveal for MOTHER OF HERETICS by T. A. Miles

Cover Reveal for MOTHER OF HERETICS by T. A. Miles 

I exist in a brightly lit darkness, and so do my characters. I write horrific monsters, in decaying or threatened environments, harassing gender-ambiguous lovelies who fight back.  Especially featuring that theme is my current Enthraller trilogy, which is part of the overarching series, Bastards of the Gods. Enthraller is a story that was inspired by […]

2,000 to 10,000 and 5,000 Words Per Hour – Reviews and Comparison 

I think it’s safe to say that most writers wish they could write more. We block out time to write before work, during our lunch hours, and before bed. But life often gets in the way: we have jobs, school, family to look after, friends to meet up with, gym sessions, or errands to run. […]

In the Garden of Iden by Kage Baker

In the Garden of Iden by Kage Baker 

Technically, my entry for this month (and for the next few months to come) won’t be fantasy. I’ll be delving into science fiction, though you could argue that the Young Wizards series was about as close as you can get to science fiction while still talking about wizards and wizardry. (One of the characters is […]
