Best of 2019 Giveaway

Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday. Mine was good, but now that January is halfway over, I can hardly remember December. I'm happy 2020 is here. As I mentioned previously, I'm reading a ton of fantasy lately which is in a word is awesome!!! One book I want to mention is An Encyclopedia of Tolkien: The History and Mythology That Inspired Tolkien's World by David Day. This book is awe-inspiring. I felt humbled just receiving it. Right now, I'm in the middle of reading it, and when I'm done, I plan on writing a post about how amazing it is. If you can't wait until then, read more about it here and the link above. What a way to start 2020 off!

Midwinter's Eve Giveaway Hop 2019

Happy Holidays! Ready for Christmas? I am! Anyone have travel plans or is family visiting? Did you finish your holiday shopping? I still have a ton of Christmas shopping to do but I'm sure I'll get it done. So much happens during the last month of the year, it almost always feels like a blur.

As we finish out this year, I'm curious about what you all thought of 2019. Was it a good one for you? It was blah for me but I'll try to make it better in 2020. Before the new year hits us, I hope you all enjoy the holiday break and have time to read a good book. And if you're reading anything good, please share. Or if you have a book launching, share that with us as well.

Fall Special 2019 & High Fantasy

Hey, Friends! Sorry for the long delay. My job took precedence for most of the year and frankly, it became too much. It took some time, but I've since been able to get some balance back in my life and am super excited for Fall. First things first though...how's everybody been? I will spend the next few days visiting my blog and writer friends to say hello.

This week marks the start of Fall 2019 which for me is equal parts exciting and overwhelming. I mean who doesn't love Fall, right? But...it seems every time it's upon us, I blink and the year's already over. Anyway, I thought I start this post by mentioning some of the books I'm reading right now.

Since I write fiction of the dark and mystical nature, I've spent the last several years submerging myself deep into high fantasy. I spent a lot of time studying from the best crafters i.e. Tolkien, George R.R. Martin and more. The books I'm most obsessed about are Robin Hobb's Farseer series. I instantly fell in love with Fitz, his bonded wolf, and the Fool. I enjoyed her books so much they always bring a smile to my face when I think about them. I've since moved on to other series, Michael J. Sullivan's Riyria Revelations - Theft of Swords -- a great series! I' looking forward to finishing this one and handing it over to my son to read.  Moving into Fall starting, I have another series that has me captivated.  Andrzej Sapkowski's Witcher books are another obsession of mine and with the launch of the Netflix series starring Henry Cavill, every reader, gamer and Superman enthusiast is salivating for this one.

For those who haven't read the books, check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.



Like the trailer? Are you into high fantasy? Have you read any of these books? Do you have a comparable book? Let us know.

That's it for now.
