the dark and twisted land of Escher after wishing himself away from an
ill-fated family holiday.


Lost and frightened, James must help heal the dying world of
Escher, overrun by the creatures of the Nightmare forest, to return home.
Guided by the emerald-eyed cat, Sam, and befriended by the
headstrong resistance fighter, Jasper, James is taken on an adventure through a

fears and the ghostly Shadow in order to save Escher.



Unbeknown to James, not only is he fighting for Escher’s
future, but also his own.

Born and raised in Hampshire, I spent most of my childhood dreaming up random adventures.

I left the sunny south coast to study Graphic Communication in Bath, where I fell in love with the rolling Somerset hills when I wasn’t walking up them.
Returning to Hampshire 6 years later, after meeting my now wife, Claire, I enjoy a quieter life, walking in the New Forest and relaxing with my wonderful wife and fluffy cat Molly.
I have always enjoyed telling stories, more often than not in visual form, either in films or animations. However, the idea of Escher was too big for me to do visually by myself so I picked up a pen and started writing.
Having written one novel, I am now keen to tell more stories of Escher, while at the same time expressing my imagination with my art.

My Review:

The Heart of Escher by Jonathan Dance is a great story for middle grade kids. However, it does start out rather depressing as James, the main character, goes through some rough times at home and school. As the characters get introduced and the story moves along, things go from bad to worse and keep you glued to the pages. You will find a great array of stone brutes, goblins, and animal creatures mingled with the humans between its pages.

The story starts on the last day of school when James has to endure bullying once again. The next day, he is going on vacation with his family of five; his parents, his younger brother and baby sister. The trip is quite long and they have to traverse two or three countries before they get there. His father has a short fuse and he, being the oldest, gets pinned with many things. He is having a terrible time until…he wakes up in a weird land with animal creatures that act like humans where everyone thinks that he is special and will help them free their land from darkness. But he is a nobody, how can they expect him to save them?

The Heart of Escher by Jonathan Dance, is a well-done tale with all kinds of fascinating stories, all with James in pursuit of his family and later trying to save Escher. I enjoyed the tale and the telling, and I believe many elementary kids and pre-teens will make The Heart of Escher by Jonathan Dance, their favorite. Great job.

Along
the way, Adam has faced many challenges, including working around his
Dyslexia (reading and writing disorder), and needing to be ruthless
with his time and energy in face of his severe asthma and chronic

Can a Princess be handicapped?

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017
Just in time for Valentines and for your favorite lady, a new clean, young adult, medieval fantasy romance hit the market today. “A Golden Princess,” book three in A Royal Romance Series of Anna del C. Dye is a stand-alone story. You will find an array of characters, fears, love, endurance and heroes, between its pages. Enjoy!

About the book:

Small for her age, Princess Nyala is determined to be noticed and someday rule with fairness and valor in Kaloma. All changes when she looks upon the stars and they predict her accident. After she awakens to a broken body, her father takes to his goblet and she steps into power in her kingdom at sixteen.

Her father said that no man would choose a half-broken princess. Is that how Prince Nicolao sees her after the accident? Her heart is unsure and out of fear she keeps him away to avoid a broken heart.

As soon the other kingdoms in the land determine the predicament of the Royal House of Kaloma, they too will prey on her vulnerability to steal her kingdom. She will have to confront new foes or lose it all.

What other said about the book:

Review by Roseanne Wilkins: A Golden Princess is a story about overcoming hardship and finding true love. This story is a clean romance suitable for pre-teens. I enjoyed the story of love and loss and finding love again through hardship. There aren’t many tales put in a medieval setting that involve strong female characters, especially characters who are physically challenged. Much of the relationship-building between the main characters is told in past perspective after Princess Nyala is injured. Moments are lived through her memories. When Nyala accepts her injuries and moves forward, the story takes off. It was good to read a story where the main character has to face a life very different from what she had planned. I love happily-ever-after’s, and Anna del C. Dye knows how to deliver.

The amazing adventures of DragonMan

Monday, January 23rd, 2017
 
Intro
to Series
The
amazing story of DragonMan was born at the dawn of the 21st Century,
when the world, about to change forever, watched in disbelief as four
passenger airliners crashed, not only into buildings and a field in
Shanksville Pennsylvania, but into the American certainty that the
horrors of the outside world could not touch them at home.
It
was into this world that a new kind of superhero emerged, one for
whom the lines between good and evil are blurred. Is he friend? Or is
he foe? No one knows for sure. What they do know, however, is that as
a friend there is no one better.

DragonMan
– The Adventures of Luke Starr

Book
1
By
Ted Lazaris
Genre:
Fantasy
 
Teenager
Luke Starr appears to be living a rather dull uneventful life in
Milwaukee, Wisconsin. That is until fate and a nameless, faceless
mysterious dark force from a different plane of existence catapults
Luke into a series of wondrous adventures, adventures that will
change his life and those around him forever. Luke Starr, respected,
feared and hated by many as the one born to greatness, is suddenly
propelled with great swiftness into a nightmare, then forced to come
face to face with destiny. Is it all a dream? A wild imagination
perhaps? Or is this unimaginable journey into the unknown real?

You’re
about to find out when you embark on this unforgettable journey with
DragonMan. A fantasy adventure filled with wizardry and mystery that
carries you away on the wings of magic to bewitching lands, where
goblins dwell, wizards rule and witches still cast their evil spells.
The
story unfolds with the mood of impending danger set early on, as a
likable young teenage hero, Luke Starr, enters a mysterious realm of
Earth known as the mythical world of Spellville, by way of an eerie
portal in search of his kidnapped friends. But the journey for Luke
is not so much a mission of mercy as one of self-discovery. For
despite his humble midwest origins, Luke is no ordinary teenager.
Imbued with super powers following a ritualistic exchange of blood
with a clever dragon, Luke soon discovers the awesome legacy of his
birthright, a dark side of great strength and brutal fury and must
learn to accept the fact that he is known in this other world as The
Chosen One.

Still,
unquestionably human, he must come to grips with what he has now
become, the most violent force in nature, a dragon hybrid, a.k.a.
“DragonMan.” And ready or not, he is thrust into a
nightmarish life and death battle to try and save Planet Earth from
alien beings hell-bent on destruction, at the same time grappling
with his own fears and doubts while always in an inner conflict with
himself trying to keep the violent nature of the dragon in check,
making it a tough road to travel for this teenage boy of strong
morals beliefs.
In
a pace that never flags, Luke and an ancient dragon must now join
together in an epic struggle that is all neatly stitched together by
an intriguing cast of characters, both good and evil and
not-exactly-as-they-seem, wherein , a mysterious psychic and an
ominous stranger and alien attack on Earth keep the action rolling
until the climactic conclusion.

DragonMan
– The Poseidon Encounter
Book 2
In
Ted Lazaris’s first fantasy adventure novel, Dragonman, the
Adventures of Luke Starr, the reader was introduced to the likable
Luke and his seemingly normal way of life growing up in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin.
Luke
was portrayed as a quiet, average kid plagued by all the inherent
problems of the typical American teen: dealing with a crush on a girl
he’s too shy to approach, pesky sisters constantly poking their noses
into his business, bullies at school and exams to study for.
But
Luke, readers soon discovered, was burdened by a far greater weight
than any of his peers, as he struggled to come to terms with his
birthright as The Chosen One, savior of the distant world of
Spellville.

 

Not
only that, but, like hapless Peter Parker forced to juggle his
complex life as Spider-Man while pursuing his love interest and his
not-always-easy career, Luke had to learn to harness the enormous
powers of DragonMan, his super alter-ego, a persona that regrettably
did not come with an instruction manual.

 

In
this second, action comic-like installment, DragonMan and the
Poseidon Encounter, Luke seems to have come to terms with his legacy
and appears well in control of his super powers–which he will be
called upon to use this time around to save the world from an evil
demon who seeks to claim the souls of every human being on earth.

 

The
mood of impending danger is set from the very first page, when author
Ted Lazaris takes off his gloves to delivering a knock-out of an
opening scene: Five-year-old Bobby Blakely, running downstairs on the
morning of his birthday, finds not the hoped for brand new bicycle as
a gift, but rather an enormous blue whale that has somehow “washed
up” in the small lake on his parent’s isolated farm.

 

While
many consider the whale’s appearance a hoax, others believe it to be
a sign of impending Biblical doom. And it is enough to rouse Luke’s
suspicions that worse is about to happen–which it does. In a pace
that never flags, Poseidon Encounter unfolds in a complex thread of
differing tales, from an old-fashioned detective murder mystery to a
science fiction fantasy, all neatly stitched together by an
intriguing cast of characters, both good and evil and
not-exactly-as-they-seem.

 

An
imaginative writer, Lazaris blends magic, mysticism, religion and the
fast-paced action of the comic book world into a book that fans of
the first DragonMan tale will find hard to put down!

Book 3
The
War to End All Wars Came Swiftly From East of the Dawn

 
A
series of savage and brutal murders is taking place by a killer that
might not be human. Where did it come from? How did it get here? And
how can it be stopped?

 

The
Order Of The Circle Of Light, a secret brotherhood first discovered
this baffling mix of man and God, in 1970. Now this Son of God, or
Satan is about to proclaim its divinity, through a ritualistic series
of slaying’s.
It’s
goal; wage war one last time to determine who shall rule Heaven and
Earth. To the victor goes the cherished prize … mankind.

In
the bloody heroic war to determine mankind’s fate, blood red
flames, smoke and dust soar high into the grim night sky above two
armies as they engage in mortal combat.

One
hopes and prays they will survive the night, retaining dominion over
their own world. While the other will wage war in ways mankind can
scarcely imagine, in a gruesome fight to end all life on Earth.
Not
only weaponry and blind fear will march into battle on December 24TH.
There will be hope and faith. There will be friendships. There will
be undying love.

But
far more than our fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters will fall on
the bitter cold December battlegrounds to determine mankind’s
destiny; shattered dreams, innocence lost, and the very essence of
the human spirit will also become casualties of war, the war to end
all wars.
Can
Luke Starr, aka, DragonMan, a new superhero for our times, figure out
whom this mysterious being really is and stop its relentless threat
to mankind?

Only
time will tell.

Ten years
ago, Luke discovered that he was the Chosen One of Spellville, a

fight against the ruthless Unter. With the help of his
great-grandfather Alaba and the other wizards of Spellville, Luke
banished Unter into the inescapable Eon Vault. All was well.

Until a
Supernova lends Unter the power to break free…

Now, the Evil
One is back and stronger than ever.

Outraged by his
previous defeat, Unter will hit Luke where it hurts most. Followers.
Friends. Family. Kidnapping one of Luke’s sisters and his
girlfriend Jenny Anderson, Unter will take one hostage on Earth, the
other on Spellville. While the Dragon is distracted by his loved ones

dying race.

loves…

A cat-and-mouse game with no rewards, only
consequences.

Magic Price
The Crown of Stones Series – Book 1
By C.L. Schneider
Genre: Epic FantasyAbout the Book
Ian Troy is one of the Shinree, a fallen people with an inherent addiction to magic. Scorned and reviled for the deadly side of their spells, the Shinree are bred as slaves. Their magic is suppressed by drugs and used only as it serves the purposes of the other races.
Descended from a long line of soldiers, Ian is conscripted into the Rellan army and made to fight in their longstanding conflict against the ruthless Langorian invaders. The downfall of Rella imminent, Ian goes against orders and turns to the Crown of Stones, an ancient Shinree relic of untold power. Ignorant of its true purpose, Ian uses the crown to end the war, and pays a terrible price.
A decade later, still tortured by the aftermath of that day, Ian lives as a bounty hunter in self-imposed exile. Having renounced his magical heritage, he curbs his obsession with a steady stream of wine and regret. He struggles to put it all behind him, until a fateful encounter with a pretty assassin brings Ian’s past crashing into the present.
Targeted by a rogue Shinree, and a ruthless old enemy, Ian is forced to use magic again. His deadly addiction is rekindled and his life of isolation is brought to a swift end. With the land he gave up everything to protect once more in jeopardy, and his people’s future at stake, Ian becomes embroiled in a violent race for control of the Crown of Stones. To save the realms and those he cares for, Ian must embrace the thing he fears most: his own power.

Magic Scars
The Crown of Stones Series – Book 2About the Book
Magic doesn’t wound the same as a sword.
The story of Ian Troy continues in Magic-Scars, the second installment in C. L. Schneider’s riveting epic fantasy trilogy, The Crown of Stones.
Captured by his old enemy, King Draken of Langor, Shinree magic user Ian Troy was sentenced to prison. Tortured and drugged, robbed of his will, his memories, and his magic, Ian was made to do unspeakable things. Rescued, as his body slowly rids itself of the drug, Ian realizes he has returned to an unfamiliar world gripped with fear. In the wake of his fall, those he cared for were left to their own grim fates. Draken has seized control of the realms and named himself High King. His brutal rein has sparked a desperate rebellion that Ian now finds himself a part of. His one task: recover and repair the Crown of Stones, in hopes it will tip the balance in the revolution that is brewing. In pursuit of the reason behind the artifact’s strange loss of magic, Ian is driven to release an explosion of retribution and power that leaves him irrevocably scarred.
Struggling to reconcile the man he has become with the man he once was, Ian strives to understand the growing number of magic-scars adorning his body. He searches for the truth behind his link to the Crown of Stones and uncovers shocking secrets buried for generations beneath the sand. To become the weapon the resistance needs, he must assume responsibility for his magical inheritance. But can he curb the destructive appetite that comes with it?
The price of Ian’s magic and his addiction have never been higher.

Magic-Borne
The Crown of Stones Series – Book 3About the Book
No other Shinree has borne as much of magic’s weight, its pleasure, or its guilt.
The fate of Ian Troy is revealed in the final installment of C. L. Schneider’s epic fantasy trilogy, The Crown of Stones.
In one fell swoop, the resistance was shattered. Lives were taken. Hope was lost. Peace slipped like grains of sand through his fingers. So did the Crown of Stones. Now, forced into hiding, Ian Troy grapples for a way to save the realm—and free its people—from the sadistic clutches of Jem Reth; Mirra’kelan’s new self-appointed emperor. Plagued with the knowledge of a tragic future, he strives to influence events and save those he cares for. But his magic has betrayed him, and Fate has other plans.
Marked by the crown, hindered by the transformation spell contained within, each cast brings Ian one step closer to becoming more beast than man. Each move brings the death and destruction foretold in his vision inexplicably nearer. With Langor on the brink of war, and King Malaq’s plan for peace hanging in the balance, Ian returns to the ancient past; seeking an end to the eldring spell and a means to thwart Jem’s growing domination. What he finds there sets off a chain of revelations that leads Ian places he never thought to go.
Entrusted with the future of his race, Ian becomes the linchpin for lasting change. But how much weight can one man carry? And how much is he willing to sacrifice in the name of peace?

The Rebel Series. Stories of Love and Liberty

Friday, November 18th, 2016

The Rebel Series–Stories of Love and Liberty by Linda Weaver Clarke

There was a time when swashbuckling men and brave women engaged in daring and romantic adventures, those who fought with bravery and valor. These courageous men and women were looked up to because they defended the people.

“This creative take on a Robin Hood-like story is charming and touching, and teaches some great morals about agency and choice. It reminded me of childhood fairytales of good versus evil, with a nice romance weaved into it.” –Author Charissa Stastny

In The Rebels of Cordovia, a group of men and women who called themselves Robin’s Rebels realize they must help the people survive this oppression. In this battle for freedom, a love story begins to blossom. Daniel, a rogue and a leader of the Freemen, doesn’t realize that the sweet feminine woman he has met and is falling for happens to be the leader of Robin’s Rebels. Realizing the importance of uniting all the rebel groups, Daniel tries to recruit Robin’s Rebels but they refuse. Now he has to find a way to convince them. When he finds out the leader is actually a woman, what will his reaction be?

rebels-of-cordovia-web

After reading this story, Susan Ortlieb from Suko’s Notebook Reviews wrote: “Linda Weaver Clarke writes with passion and grace, and the love story in this book is simply wonderful. In fact, this aspect of the story was the strongest draw for me. (Are love stories set in the past more romantic than those set in the present day?) I thought that Robin and Daniel sounded perfect for each other, and I enjoyed the steady development of their relationship. This charming book was a pleasure to read, and I relished it.”

The tales from The Rebel Series have adventure, sweet romance, and delectable kisses. These are stories of love and liberty that takes place between the 18th and 19th Century. In the sequel, The Highwayman of Cordovia, the people enjoy their new-found liberty but all is not well. One year after Cordovia gains its freedom, a group of powerful men plan to take over the small country and replace the leader with a king.

With the help of a bold highwayman and a pastor’s daughter, they try to save their country from being taken over by a power-hungry leader. As they strive to stop the Kingmen and thwart their plans, Christine finds herself falling in love with Austin Knight. The only problem with their relationship is that she thinks he is her knight in shining armor instead of a highwayman. If she finds out his trade, what will her reaction be? As a pastor’s daughter, will love override her values?

“Linda Weaver Clarke has a storyteller’s talent for enchanting and mesmerizing the audience. There are also some exciting surprises and twists that will delight the heart. Definitely a must read!” –Cindi Clubbs, Mommasez Reviews

The Interview:

How long have you been writing? 

The first major moment for writing was in Fifth grade. We were given a composition book and told to write stories in it, but not I. I wrote a novel, filling it to the back bag with an adventure of a girl lost in Africa. It’s still on my bookshelf, but maybe one of these days I’ll dust it off and try to recapture the story I was telling.

 

Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

I’m still here in Central Florida, a short drive from my home town Winter Garden where I was sixth generation on the same road. That’s a rare thing in this area anymore, with transplants, snowbirds and tourist. Anyhow, back to how I came to be where I stand today! In high school, I started writing a lot more creative work as a hobby. In fact, Rebirth was the 25,000 handwritten pass around story I had going and friends often encouraged me to continue. I picked it up off and on during college and later years, never taking the idea of writing as a career serious. In 2010, I found myself rethinking everything. Six months pregnant with my first child, the economy wiping out my job and with it Foreclosure on my house and repo’ing of our car, and to top it all off, having the back of my left calf removed due to skin cancer, I started writing again. This time I decided to learn more about the craft, sought out both self-published and traditionally published authors, agents, mentors, anywhere I could gain knowledge of what it would take to write my work at a professional level. By January 2012, I had taken in all the advice, feedback, and knowledge and stepping off the ledge when I self-published Cedric the Demonic Knight. Thus began this unstoppable drive to becoming an author.

With Angeline back in Cedric’s arms and the Eye of Gaea in Romasanta’s grip, the next step in their journey begins. Knowing they will be facing the mother of dragons, Delphyne, at the top of Mt. Parnassus, they assemble a group to traverse the barrier which dissolves any technology and renders gunpowder useless. The question weighing on their minds is if two werewolves, the incubus King, and a demonized sorceress is enough to fight their way to see the Oracle?

The Belmont Saga… vile evil and hopeless terror

Friday, November 4th, 2016
 banner-8

 

Welcome back to Author Ren Garcia and his Saga 

 

 

Book 1 – Sands of the Solar Empire
GET THE BRANDY TO BAZZ . . .
That’s all Paymaster Stenstrom, the Lord of Belmont-South Tyrol, has to do and the old warbird Seeker is his. He has dreamed of captaining a Fleet ship his entire life.
Little does Paymaster Stenstrom realize that he is in the grip of an old Vendetta and the short trip to Bazz might very well be his last.
Faced with a dead ship and a lost crew, Paymaster Stenstrom finds help in the strangest places: the thief Marine and the milquetoast young man from the Admiral’s office, and, though he just became acquainted with these two strangers, he discovers they have been influencing each other’s lives for a very long time.
Something sinister hovers over Paymaster Stenstrom and his two new friends, something they are only now becoming aware of. The SANDS OF THE SOLAR EMPIRE stretch out before them in an endless gulf brimming with the unknown. Can a masked Paymaster, a thief, a coward and a once great warbird face what awaits them?
Book 2 – Against the Druries
That’s what they say on Bazz, that the “Deep Sea”, the open space between the two planets, is cursed and full of bad dreams—but nobody ever listens to people from Bazz, do they?
Paymaster Stenstrom, Private Taara and Lord A-Ram struggle to navigate the Seeker, an old warbird, through the shipping lanes to Bazz. If the Paymaster can’t get to Bazz with his cargo of brandy, he loses the ship and will probably end up in jail as well.
Jail? If only . . . The three adventurers are about to discover the old farfetched mariner stories are very real and that the Devil himself waits for the unwary in dark places where there is no help.
The Circle closes in on Stenstrom, Taara and A-Ram, and its judgment for them is far worse than any jail cell. The Seeker is about of become just another ship that set sail from safe shores and was never heard from again, unless . . .
The Belmont Saga concludes in this heartbreaking and action-packed tale of friendship and dedication, of vile evil and hopeless terror, and that sometimes help for those gone astray comes from the most unlikely of places.

The Wizard’s Heir by Author Devri Walls

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

      Devri Walls lives in Meridian ID with her husband, two kids and the cutest must you’ve ever seen. After suffering from an abundance of creativity with not enough places to put it, she turned to writing. Which in the end, turned out to be exactly where she should have been putting it all along.       Q&A With The Author:

1.    What inspired your book?
Actually, the cover. The art was done by Claudia McKinney from Phatpuppy art who also did all four of the covers for my first series. I saw the art in her portfolio and knew I wanted to write this guy’s story! So I bought the image first and wrote around it.
2.    How do you spend your free time
I have kids, what is this “free time” you speak of?
I’m a foodie, I love going out to eat. I also love watching shows of all kinds, theater or T.V. Also reading of course.

Dr. Wolf 2 CoverThe Book:
When the head doctor’s daughter is bitten by a goblin, Dr. Wolf is forced to the edge of his limits to save her life. Other victims show up, turning the chance attack into one calculated to send a message. With the safety
of the human race hanging in the balance, Dr. Wolf has to find out how an Archdemon made it to Edge City. The answer could mean life or death for the young woman whose blue eyes and warm smile have stolen
his heart.
Book excerpt for blog:
A slight sound caught Aleric’s ear. He hesitated near a room on the left. The door was shut. He reached for the doorknob and turned it slowly. The door swung inward with a slight creak.”Come out, come out,” Aleric said. His heart thundered in his chest. He took a step inside the dark room, then another. There were no windows or emergency lighting; only the rectangle of dim light from the doorway spilled inside to illuminate the shadows along the wall.

It appeared to be an equipment room of some sort. Stacks of chairs, a few tables, and short, moveable walls had been placed randomly inside. Aleric squinted, wishing he was in wolf form so he could see better. If he phased, the Dark fae beast would be far stronger than him and he wouldn’t have the ability to use the cord or anything else against it. He might be faster, but given the creature’s reaction to him earlier, he wasn’t sure if he could get the gargoyle to chase him.

Aleric was nearly to the back wall when his eyes made out the form hunched in the far corner. It had curved edges where everything else in the storage room was straight and severe. His ears picked up the faintest breath shuddering from huge lungs. The deep bellows sound of the gargoyle’s heart caught Aleric’s ears. He pretended not to notice it, turning just enough so that his course led him past the creature instead of straight to it.

Feigning nonchalance, Aleric stooped and picked up a thick book. He flipped it open as he walked past the creature.

“Interesting. Mmmhmmm. Very interesting.” He flipped through the pages. He was nearly past the gargoyle when he slammed the book shut and threw it at the creature’s face. The book hit it right on the snout. The gargoyle reared back in surprise.

“Gotcha,” Aleric told the huge creature.
