Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off
I’m leading off this post with some lovely news about my epic fantasy/adventure story The Amber Isle – I was thrilled to learn it was a semi-finalist in the opening round of Mark Lawrences’ SPFBO (which you can read about here) and while I didn’t expect a novella to fare to well against full length novels, I’m still very happy with how it went!
Two short interviews are also up – one is a quick promotional one which talks a little about the inspiration behind City of Masks and the other is part of Ambrose Hall’s Gothic/Horror month, where I talk about A Whisper of Leaves and living next to cemeteries 🙂
(In fact, A Whisper of Leaves, my ghost story set in Japan, is actually $1 during the lead up to Halloween if you’re looking for a suspense read)
Another Review 🙂
I was pleasantly surprised to find that a new review group Fantasia Reviews, found a copy of City of Masks and did an in depth review that featured pull-quotes, which I thought was ace 🙂 They describe the writing as laconic and effective (which I liked :D) – check it out!
Greatmask is on track for its late November release and I’ll soon be sharing a chapter from Seto too. I’m at around 15k for Never #5 and hope to announce a kickstarter for it soon. Next year, after Never #5 is out, I hope to be working on a sequel to A Whisper of Leaves and another dark fantasy/suspense story (Fallow-Man). Otherwise I’m also planning to get a lot more reading done over the ever-nearing Christmas break 🙂
