This year I'm taking part in SPFBO as an advisor for Fantasy Book Review's judging team. I decided to offer a spot to the authors in our group. The spotlight today shines on Lorri Moulton.
So you want to be an author? Awesome! Keith McArdle, author of SPFBO4 entrant Fallen Empire, the first book of the Ironstone Saga - find an excerpt at the bottom of this article - and a few other books besides has some advice for you!
I guess I don't have to introduce Ulff Lehmann, author of Shattered Dreams and soon to be released Shattered Hopes. We've had quite a nice chat about writing and fantasy all things fun in an interview before. This time he shares a short story with us about the real evil behind the mask of kindness. This is not a fantasy story but deals with a very serious topic. How far would you go to keep your family out of harm's way? And what would you do if the worst already happened?
All of us got pet peeves, aren't we? My newest guest, Andy Peloquin decided to write up an article about anti-stereotypes he enjoys reading about. Let's face it, we all like to turn our back on stereotypes and find something new and fresh wich twists these tropes we know too well.
Another week, another great author gets the spotlight. This time Martin Owton treats you fine people to one of his short stories which introduces to us his The Nandor Tales series' main character, Aron.
Megan is lovely and friendly, so I'm happy to host her on my blog today. Read about her below and take a look at the excerpt from her first novel, The Finder of the Lucky Devil in her urban fantasy series, titled Lucky Devil. Those who follow SPFBO might have seen her around since she is participating in the contest this year 🙂
Amanda, like a hawk sensing its prey, swept in and took the opportunity. Which made me pretty happy, because, well, you know, I'm a music addict, so finally someone combined my two love: books and music! Amanda gives us a glimpse how she uses music during her story. This article is rather interesting, so hopefully you'll like it as much as I do!
