Hoo boy, June was A MONTH. And we are only halfway through 2020. It started with me working my ass off to get the blog ready for the moving. That is, we moved RockStarlit BookAsylum from Wordpress.com to a self-hosted Wordpress site and if I can say so, it looks fucking great. Which is only fair, as I worked more on this than I care to admit. On the day before the final move I basically sat before my screen for 12 hours straight to make sure everything is as it should be. And that was only the last day. But thankfully everything went well and to celebrate we announced…
I know 2020 is a complete shit show so far, and I hope you are all safe and well. I sure have my own struggles - apparently my optometrist have no clue why my glasses which are supposed to be good, aren't actually good and give me troubles. It greatly affects my everyday life and reading (thank fuck for audiobooks). But I try not to let that get in my way and not to take too much painkillers for my headaches... Life is fun, huh? Anyway, I'm not here to whine about myself, but to tell you all about what we were up to in May!
You might remember Beneath Cruel Fathoms, which was our SPFBO5 semi-finalist, and one of my personal favourites from our group. I'm excited to let you know that the sequel, Between Savage Tides is on its way! It's set to be released on August 31st. Today I'm giving you the opportunity to look at its beautiful cover, read a mini interview and to win some swag along with a copy of Beneath Cruel Fathoms!
Today I'm happy to present the cover of A King's Bargain, book 1 of the Legend of Tal Epic Fantasy series, which is set to be released on June 1st 2020.
Organised by Storytellers On Tour, today we, along with several other bloggers, we present to you the cover of Brass Knuckles & Battered Wings by Martin Svolgart! Make sure to check out their posts as well!

Is it just me or February really just lasted for a blink? I was so occupied with stuff, that halfway through the month I completely forgot that it was my birthday month and didn't have as much fun as I would have liked. That's not saying I didn't have any fun ar that I didn't have a great birthday month, because I did. But I was just too focused on the coming blog anniversary and other things I'm working on behind the scenes. Oops.
Together with the awesome Justine Bergman from Whispers and Wonder and Nick from Out of This World SFF Reviews today we present to you the amazing cover of The World Maker Parable by Luke Tarzian! Make sure to check out their posts as well! Pre-order link in the post.
You know what month this is? February. And do you know what that means? My birthday is around the corner! I love this month - duh - despite the shit winter weather I hate. But lets see what else I have in store, shall we?
January seemed to be endless to some of you, but personally I had more good days than bad (according to my handy mood tracker). I definitely had some ups and downs but I also focused my attention on some new things I'm excited about.
I have the honour to present you the cover of David Hambling's upcoming fantasy novel, War of the God Queen! You might know David's work through his Harry Stubbs series, three of which I reviewed here on the blog: The Elder Ice, Broken Meats, Alien Stars. War of the God Queen will be released on January 17th, but you can already pre-order it now!
