Hi guys! So, my book Of Blood And Fire is set for release in March 2021. I'm looking for some passionate fantasy readers who would like to get their hand on an Advanced Review Copy and be able to leave honest reviews.

The book is an Epic Fantasy that combines combing of age, and sword and sorcery with a gritty world of Epic scope.

Name: Ryan Cahill
Email: ryancahillauthor@gmail.com

Novel Title: Of Blood And Fire
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Length: 509 pages/ 140k words
Format: ebook
Back Cover Blurb:
Born in fire. Tempered in blood.

Epheria is a land divided by war and mistrust. The High Lords of the south squabble and fight, only kept in check by the Dragonguard, traitors of a time long past, who serve the empire of the North.

In the remote villages of southern Epheria, still reeling from the tragic loss of his brother, Calen Bryer prepares for The Proving—a test of courage and skill that not all survive.

But when three strangers arrive in the village of Milltown, with a secret they are willing to die for, Calen’s world is ripped from under him and he is thrust headfirst into a war that has been raging for centuries.

There is no prophecy. His coming was not foretold.

He bleeds like any man, and bleed he will.

How Many Copies Available for Reviewers: Ebook ARC's available, so no set limit.

Stipulations: Just get in contact with me either here, or through my email above, and we can arrange an ARC copy. Reviews on Amazon and Goodreads are preferred.

A ghost could instil terror to the degree that it paralyses (temporarily) the unfortunate being that comes across it. It could make someone hallucinate, thus luring them into danger, into doing something like stepping over a cliff or through a window. It could bring with it enough coldness to literally freeze objects, even causing them to crack and break. Or similarly, it could bring a building, intense heat, hot enough to make things smoulder and smoke, possibly even burn. It can bring with it visions of the physical past, making someone believe there are steps where in reality there are not, or solid ground where there is in fact a hole and so on. You could make your ghost physically able to do things to, though for me a ghost that can do too much in that vein is in fact a poltergeist. I think the whole point of ghosts, the thing that makes them scary, is that sense of doubt it instils in the human mind, even when the hairs are standing up on the back of our neck - did I really see that shadow? Was there really a mist in the room just now? Did I really feel a cold hand on the back of my neck? The suggestion is the scare for me, where ghosts are concerned. Plus a great back story, of course.

Writers' Corner / Re: Evil colour. Am I completely overthinking this?

I was going to suggest grey too. It can be brooding, dark, menacing and miserable. We often think of grey areas as being indistinct and undecided. You could expand that to mean an indistinct kind of evil, a lurking, uncertain threat or danger. There are many variations to grey too, plus it could combine with the clouds, with the shades of light at night and even in the daytime, allowing the danger to hide in plain sight.

Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Re: Cook books inspired by fantasy

Anne McCaffrey (Pern) wrote a cookbook. It was recipes provided by other SFF authors. Apparently it’s now fairly rare and rather expensive.

I loved the Queen’s Gambit anyone else watched it?

Anya Taylor-Joy Was fantastic in this tv series I also liked watching her in Emma.
Queens Gambit was wonderful. I googled some stuff about it and found that the book it was based on was written by the same person who wrote The Hustler.

Right, after yesterday's comment these last 100-odd pages have been amazing :D
Things are finally turning, and I particularly love 2 things:

Spoiler for Hiden:
1. How they used the stock market to get one over Borelgai
2. How amazing and genius and incredible Janus is, being taken and yet still managing to plot so much!!
Yay for Sothe being back!

Once I accepted that the Sons of Anarchy was basically just a violent, high-budget soap opera, I enjoyed it a lot more.  ;D

I'm watching a boatload of crime drama these days. I just watched 3 seasons of The Ozarks, and now have started on season 1 of Sons of Anarchy. Sons wasn't really all that great, but still watchable.
Sons of Anarchy started off really well, lost its way a bit in the middle, but finished strong. Kurt Sutter based the storyline fairly loosely on Hamlet. It also influenced/inspired Jonathan French’s grimdark The Grey Bastards.
