A Wizard’s Sacrifice by A. M. Justice – Cover Reveal and Excerpt

A Wizard’s Sacrifice by A. M. Justice – Cover Reveal and Excerpt 

Although my name—A. M. Justice—might imply I write detective fiction or Westerns, my particular authorial wheelhouse is science fantasy. I also contribute reviews of film, TV, and books to Fantasy-Faction, and I’m honored to lead the Faction’s SPFBO6 judges’ group.

6th Annual Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off: Cover Contest

6th Annual Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off: Cover Contest 

“I may not know much about art, but I know what I like.” That is the punchline of a Monty Python sketch in which the Pope and Michelangelo argue over the merits of Mike’s version of The Last Supper, a painting that contains 28 disciples, a kangaroo, and Jell-O for dessert. The line has always […]

Legacy of Ghosts by Alicia Wanstall-Burke – Cover Reveal

Legacy of Ghosts by Alicia Wanstall-Burke – Cover Reveal 

Writing Legacy of Ghosts may have been the hardest thing I’ve ever done in a creative capacity, but choosing a cover artist didn’t take a second thought. Pen Astridge created the cover for Blood of Heirs, book one of The Coraidic Sagas, so it made complete sense to ask (beg) her to create something for […]

Simantov by Asaf Ashery – English Edition Cover Reveal 

Over the years we have done a few reviews on books and movies translated from other languages into English. I can think of some from Sweden, Spain, and China, off the top of my head. But this is the first time we have showcased a book originally written in Hebrew! And while we don’t yet […]

Todd Lockwood Interview – The Summer Dragon

Todd Lockwood Interview – The Summer Dragon 

I went to Dragon Con (a convention held in Atlanta, George) in the fall of 2016. Amid the hustle and bustle of the massive crowds, attending author panels and going to workshops we decided we needed a break. My sister-in-law’s husband wished to go see a friend in the Marriott, so we entered into an […]

Chasing Graves by Ben Galley – Cover Reveal & Guest Blog

Chasing Graves by Ben Galley – Cover Reveal & Guest Blog 

I’m a firm believer that cover art is part and parcel of the book – conjoined twins impossible to separate. The cover plays an important role. It represents the words inside a book, communicates genre, indicates quality, and is ultimately responsible for attracting the eye of the reader. It’s got a vital job, and although […]

With one SPFBO done and another to begin, I’ve taken some time to read some books I’ve been wanting to read for a while, but what with one thing, another, a tonne of my own writing, and real life in the way I never got the chance too. I know, excuses, excuses. Shawn Wickersheim’s book, […]

The Lost Puzzler by Eyal Kless – Cover Reveal

The Lost Puzzler by Eyal Kless – Cover Reveal 

There aren’t a huge amount of fantasy/science fiction hybrids and probably for good reason; it’s a very hard balance to strike. If the reader feels for even a moment that the fantasy elements are there for the sake of being there (i.e. the science fiction elements should have resulted in the civilisation moving on – […]
