SPFBO Edition: Brian D. Meeks

Tales from the Asylum is a new feature I came up with for SPFBO. I wanted to create a unique opportunity for the authors to show off their story telling skills by taking their characters and putting them in an asylum room to see how they would deal with the situation. A lot can happen in a closed space...

What’s to come? – July 2019

July is going to be... busy. And that's an understatement. With freelancing, SPFBO and ARC reviewing I'll have my hands pretty full. But hey, I got myself into this, so I can't really complain. I'm going to be very mysterious in this sneak peek, but believe me, you are going to love the things I'll bring to you this month and the wait (and torture) will be worth it! I just have to make sure my mental state is up to all these things...

Monthly Wrap Up: June 2019

June was a pretty great month all things considered. I was supposed to take this month easier and have a break, but ended up not doing that. Until I was forced to realised that I indeed needed a break and the last few days of the month was all about relaxing and doing anything other than reading. It was nice. It was my first month being only half employed at my workplace and OMG I LOVE working only 4 hours. The first two weeks made wonders to my mental health and I'm so happy I made this decision.

The Questioning: Dyrk Ashton

The Questioning is where everything gets upside down. Every month I invite one author and one blogger, who showed me great support during my blogging life. Then I push them waaaaay out of their comfort zones. Authors has become interrogators and Bloggers get interrogated. Rest assured, no one gets hurt (much) and everyone has fun (eventually).

Pride Month: RainBook Recs – Part 2

We thought it would be fun to do a little something in recognition of Pride Month here at Rockstarlit BookAsylum. So, I went through and picked books that I had enjoyed that had some LGBTQ content, and matched the pride flag to the dominate color of the covers, with varying degrees of luck.

What’s to come? – June 2019

June won't be any less exciting than May was, as things still keep happening. I finally started my new journey in life and I couldn't be happier. SPFBO5 is about to kick off as well and I'll be going to concerts too. 

Monthly Wrap Up: May 2019

May was an interesting whirlwind of a month. We had my cousin's wedding, I made some life changing desicions, my blog got picked to be one of the judges for SPFBO5 and I  got my hands on a lot of awesome ARCs and books. And I finally got caught up with everything!

SPFBO Interview with Devin Madson

One of the goals of SPFBO is to give a chance to self-published authors to get more exposure. In the Finals I'm taking part in the competition as one of the judges in Fantasy Book Review's team. As I did with our group's authors, I decided to offer a spot to the Finalists too to be featured on my blog.

10 Books Featuring Kids in Adult Fiction

As I'm reading Priest of Lies by Peter McLean currently, and one of my favorite characters happen to be Billy the Boy, a 14 year old lad, I started to think about books where children were not only side characters but had an important role. As I'm mostly reading adult fiction I went and looked at those books to pick 10 - which, let me tell you is a challenge.

Guest Post: Behind the Walls of Ioth by D.P. Woolliscroft

This is book 2 of the Wildifre Cycle and continues the story from both Kingshold and Tales of Kingshold (two books before book 2, what? I know but you can read here if you want to know more). 95% of Kingshold took place in the titular city and I tried really hard to make it come alive in the story, but also tried to do that in a couple of other ways too. There is the great landscape of the city of Kingshold that was made by Jeff Brown and there was the map of the city. It’s these things that I am here to talk about today. Maps! And the reveal of the full landscape art for Ioth.

What’s to come? – May 2019

Exciting and at the same time terrifying things are happening to me these days and I can't wait to see where things lead me. May probably will be a slow reading month as a lot of things are going on, so bear with me. On the other hand, I'll catch up with reviews, so yay!

Monthly Wrap Up: April 2019

Whoa, April went by fast, I guess all of that stressing made time fly by or something, lol. It wasn't a boring month that's for sure, and I had a lot of supposed-to-be-relaxing time too. On the other hand I've got an awesome signed copy of Priest of Bones so I really can't complain.
