Christina Creangle stared at the smoldering ruins of her life’s work. When the Moufan, an ancient secret society, offered to take care of her senile father as repayment of an old debt, she agreed. The idea of isolation with both her protege and her legendary inventor father, was too compelling to question.
But the winds of history are blowing fierce after the first
Heshayol The Blood of Dragons Book 2 Over a millennium ago, at their father's command, Tyran and Drast sent the Horned God to the Netherworld in hopes of gaining everlasting life. Instead, they sparked a chain of events that led to the near destruction of the Ash Tree and the liberation of the old gods. Now, with the world waning, the two brothers are freed from Anaerfell to travel to the frozen realm of the dead and resurrect their enemy with hopes of restoring balance. Tyra

Immerse yourself in the time-spanning epic tale of Ian Troy in a whole new way! Magic-Price is now on Audible! It has been a fun and exciting journey working with my talented narrator, Daniel Storm, and I couldn't be more pleased with the finished product. In the beginning, though, I was hesitant. I wanted to offer my stories in all formats, but I was far from an expert. I had no idea what would make a good audiobook. I'd only listened to a handful in my entire life. When I s
This book was not at all what I was expecting. By the blurb, I was sure I would enjoy it. I LOVED it! Bold, brash, irreverent, bloody, and funny as hell, The Call of Gelduur was a blast to read. I love authors that don’t shy away, who aren’t afraid of ‘punch in the gut’ writing—and have the chops to pull it off. The fight scenes are as well done as the banter. I thoroughly enjoyed adventuring, raiding, and pillaging with all the colorful Norrlanders. Their bawdy, make no excu
BLURB Orphaned as a young child and growing up alone in the forest, Delina lives a life of isolation; her only companion a saber-toothed panther. Her strange eyes frighten those she occasionally encounters, so she keeps to herself, until a young, wounded warrior ends up at her doorstep. As she nurses him back to health, she discovers she is more than just a young woman with unusual eyes, she is a dragonblood, destined to become the ruler of Almar. Now hunted by the dark sorce

#IndiePrideDay is at the end of the week. Between now and July 1st, I’m featuring some of the indie author’s I’ve read (and loved) since becoming one myself. Today’s feature: Angela B. Chrysler. There are so many amazing things about Angela Chrysler, I don’t know where to start. She is the brainchild of Brain to Books and the Goodreads Cyber Con . She has Story Time on YouTube. She works tirelessly (and I mean tirelessly—I don’t know when the woman sleeps!) to help other ind
My magic knew nothing of sides. My spells fed without discrimination. They were selfish, heartless. They didn’t care who was right or wrong, who was strong or weak. To create themselves, they would drain friend as easily as foe. —The Crown of Stones: Magic-Price Power is never free. It can’t be. If there were no consequences, no limits, the world would be a scary place. So would my fantasy world. In building a magic system like the one I created for The Crown of St
Someone once said to me: “Writing fantasy isn’t work. It isn’t real writing. You make everything up. There’s no rules, no research. If you write yourself into a corner just cast a spell and your problem’s solved. It’s magic. It doesn’t have to make sense.”
Thankfully, I knew better. Yes, you get to make stuff up, but you won’t sweep up anyone into the world you created if it isn’t believable. That takes research and rules—yes, you get to make some of those up, too. But your
I’ve always had a thing for stars. Though my back yard here in NY never feels quite dark enough for stargazing, where I grew up in the Midwest was ripe for it. My mother was a bona fide night owl—something she most definitely passed down to me. In the summer, we would go swimming (just the two of us) in the wee hours of the night. Floating in the water, soaking up the peacefulness, we would stare up into the sky, looking for shooting stars and daydreaming about what might be
I was asked to guest post this month at The Writing Desk. It's a short piece on what inspired me to write and how I approach a story.
The Writing Desk is a great resource for writers and a good place to find new authors.

There's an indie band I've been following for some time out of Chicago. The title song of their latest CD, "Set Fire", has nothing to do with writing. I imagine it's about a relationship, as most songs are. But the first time I listened to the lyrics, one particular phrase stuck out. "I set fires in the pouring rain." Immediately, I thought: This is what I've been doing for years. We all have pursuits and dreams. They're fun to think about. They keep us going. But turning a r
