The Heart of Escher

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

 

James Fisher, a lonely, bullied schoolboy, finds himself in
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
world mirroring his own nightmares, where he is forced to confront his own
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.

worries.
Leaning
my bloody head against the back of the crashed levitating carriage, I
flex my cramped fingers. With a renewed grip on the mana-pistol, I
steal a quick breath. The others better wake up fast, otherwise we’re
all going to burn.

expecting murder. When Tilly finds the body of a board member outside

Snippet

Courtney glanced out the window overlooking the dining area as she did. Overhead, something momentarily blotted out the sun. It looked like some kind of bird, though none she could identify. She moved closer to the window, trying to decide if she’d seen something or not. “Hey, Tyler, have you heard of there being any kind of large bird in the area?”

Tyler looked up from cleaning the counter with a dishtowel. “Large birds?” He abandoned his cloth and walked over to the window. The hair on the back of his neck began to prickle as he saw another shadow cross over the sun. It didn’t look like the typical fowl.

The silhouette looked like some kind of flying creature. It resembled one he’d seen several years ago. He could clearly see two creatures, even though they were both relatively far away. “That’s not a bird,” he warned. He reached for the nearest weapon, which happened to be a wooden walking stick from against the wall.

Seeing Tyler’s unusual reaction, Anwen felt her chest tighten. “How did they find us?”

Do you know the Chicago Fairytale?

Saturday, March 25th, 2017
The
Fairytale Chicago of Francesca Finnegan
by
Steve Wiley
Genre:
Fantasy
 
“Intelligent,
Enchanting, Playful” ~ Publishers Weekly
Warning:
Content may be deemed offensive by Polish Indians, vice presidents of
something, my wife, Finbar Finnegan’s wife, LinkedIn, little kids who
think this book is for little kids, Thumbelina, Brown Liners,
mermaids, and the wind.

 

Growing
up and getting trapped in adult life is something that most people
eventually face, but while reading The Fairytale Chicago of Francesca
Finnegan, a charming and magical book by Steve Wiley, it is almost
possible to forget about the inexorable progress of time. With a main
character who is teetering on the edge of forgetting about magic
forever, this novel is a touching and thought-provoking ride through
nostalgia, memory and the promises of youth. Wiley’s sharp,
tongue-in-cheek style of writing makes the pages fly and the Chicago
skyline makes a stunning backdrop for this mystical romp.
In
Chicago, a secret L train runs through the mythical East Side of the
city. On that train, you’ll find a house-cat conductor, an
alcoholic elf, a queen of the last city farm, the most curious wind,
and an exceptional girl by the name of Francesca Finnegan.
When
we first encounter Richard K. Lyons, he is a man who has long
forgotten the one night, when he was still a boy called Rich, when
Francesca invited him aboard the secret L for an adventure through
the East Side. The night was a mad epic, complete with
gravity-defying first kisses, mermaid overdoses, and princess
rescues. Unfortunately for Rich, the night ended like one of those
elusive dreams forgotten the moment you wake. Now, Rich is all grown
up and out of childish adventures, an adult whose life is on the
verge of ruin. It will take the rediscovery of his exploits with
Francesca, and a reacquaintance with the boy he once was, to save
him.
Half
of the proceeds from this book are donated to Chicago Public Schools.

Amazon bestselling Black Parade novels. Don’t miss out on this
explosive first-in-series!
Goodreads * Amazon
 

What is something unique/quirky about you?

I was traumatized by Jurassic Park as a kid and I still have nightmares about velociraptors breaking into my room and tearing me to pieces.

 

Tell us something really interesting that happened to you!

I hugged Captain America! As in Chris Evans! I attended New Orleans Comic Con in January 2017 and got a photo op with him and it was genuinely the greatest fifteen seconds of my entire life.

 

What are some of your pet peeves?

Rude, lazy, or discourteous customers. I’ve unfortunately been stuck working retail as a day job to support my writing and now I have an intense dislike for retail customers. Especially ones who either waste your time or explode on you for petty or idiotic reasons.

 

What are your top 10 favorite books/authors?

In no particular order, my favorite books are:

-Mr. Maybe by Jane Green

-Inheritance by Devin Grayson

-Helltown by Dennis O’Neill

-Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume

-Earthrise by M.C.A Hogarth

-Paradise Lost by John Milton

-The Iliad and the Odyssey by Homer

-Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

-Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh

-Metamorphoses by Ovid

 

In no particular order, my favorite authors are:

-Jim Butcher

-Ilona Andrews

-Brian Jacques

-J.K. Rowling

-Neil Gaiman

-Richard Castle

-Elizabeth Haydon

-Chuck Wendig

-Geoffrey Thorne

-Junot Diaz

 

 

What inspired you to write this book?

I was inspired to write Of Cinder and Bone by a very weird thing, actually: the 2002 film ‘Reign of Fire’ starring Christian Bale and Matthew McConaughey. It sounds bizarre considering that movie is aggressively awful, but the idea that it spawned is that not too many people write about dragons from an apocalyptic sci-fi view. I found myself in love with the idea of dragons being real animals that fit into modern day and so I found a way to bring them to life with realistic scientific methods and then decided to sort of study the idea of man vs. nature vs. God, much like what was briefly explored in the Jurassic Park film.

 

What can we expect from you in the future?

My future is planned out through about 2018 as of right now. The next book in the Of Cinder and Bone series, Of Blood and Ashes, will drop later this year, probably in the fall, but possibly in the summer if I finish it fast enough. I am also penning a novella for The Black Parade series that is going to premiere exclusively in an upcoming boxed set with other fantasy authors, but once the set is gone, I will publish it alongside the other four books in the series. After that, I’ll be writing the third book in the Of Cinder and Bone series and then see where I’d like to go from there for beyond 2018. I have an entire library’s worth of ideas, so it really just depends on what my fancy is at the time.

 

Do you have any “side stories” about the characters?

As I mentioned before, the upcoming novella for The Black Parade series is precisely that: a side story that occurs between the second and third novels of the series. I also have another short story for one of the side characters in The Holy Dark, but I haven’t decided if I will fully pursue it since it’s just a short story rather than a novella. I’ve put it on the back burner for now, but if I pick it up and apply full attention to it, then I may actually release another set of short stories told by side characters.

 

Where were you born/grew up at?

I was born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in a metro-Atlanta city called Riverdale, but trust me, it has no relation to Riverdale from the Archie comics. It’s honestly no longer a nice place to live, but it was while I was a kid. My mother’s side of the family still lives there, and so I always visit during the year.

Their meeting sets an ancient Norse prophesy of destruction
in motion, and what destiny has in store for them is bigger than
either could have ever imagined. Unless they learn to trust
themselves and one another, they may never resolve the mystery

world.

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.

RANDY LINDSAY is a world traveler. Which sounds impressive until you realize the worlds he visits exist only in his mind and on the pages of his novels. He claims to prefer this method of sightseeing because he can stop at any time, go to the kitchen, and indulge his ice cream addiction. When he isn’t busy making things up he likes going to movies with his wife to watch what other people have made up and plays board games with his children who are in the habit of making up the rules as they go along. 

Battlementals: Quest for the Harmonicon is Randy’s third published book and the first in a series of stories that take place in the Battlemental universe. He switched to writing full time in 2011 and has had two novels published through Bonneville Books.

His journey as an author has been an exciting one, full of unexpected discoveries. One of those being the decision to focus more of his writing on middle-grade fantasy. The fact that the style feels more natural to Randy might be an indication that he is really just a kid at heart.

The second unexpected discovery was that he enjoyed marketing. Book signings, writing workshops, and podcasts about storytelling all gave him opportunities to discuss what he loves with others who share the same interest. This combined with the decision to write middle-grade stories led to his development of C.A.S.T. (a program intended to show children and teens how to incorporate storytelling into their everyday lives).

Battlementals: Quest for the Harmonicon by Randy Lindsay is a pre-teen/ middle school tale full of very interesting characters that are not all human. Imagination flows rampant in each chapter of this book. It keeps the level characteristic to children’s speech and behaviors.

When a group of children are approached by an interesting older person, they look at him as just that. However, they don’t expect that this old guy can change their life and the future of the universe in one conversation. Nor do they expect to say yes to his ridiculous idea for them to go on a journey or quest to save the universe. Their first instinct says that the guy is crazy, but soon the champions change their mind when they see a world disappear and they realize that it could have been earth and their families.

Now this group of children has to be brave, united and most of all friends to see the quest to its end.

I enjoy the telling and the characters of Battlementals: Quest for the Harmonicon by Randy Lindsay. It flows smoothly to the last page and each character is developed and grows flawlessly. It will be loved by many pre-teens and even younger kids.

The story of a kids who help a fish, is a great idea to teach children how to earn money. I remember when I was young, and even just barely married, how much stress I had trying to find ideas of how to make extra money for our small family.In this book, you will find great ideas and all your children need to get into an entrepreneurial mindset. It will help you to teach your children the value of money and hard work. It will also guide your children to ask more questions and start thinking in a more down to earth manner. Most kids don’t know how to use their money or lack ideas and motivations to find and do something real to better themselves and their future. This book will help with this task. I think that it will be a great fit for all kids from a young age to adults alike. They are many adults who have no idea what to do with their future either, and this book will give them a little taste of reality. Great job Karl Beckstrand.

The Order
The Order Book 1
by A.C. Donaubauer
Genre: Epic Fantasy
About the Book

A clumsy step, the wrong branch to hold on to and a bump on the head to leave her unconscious – no more than that causes Eryn’s life to turn upside down and to suddenly find herself in the capital city as a prisoner to the king.
She is determined to keep her magical abilities a secret in a kingdom where magicians have only ever been male as long as anyone knows. That doesn’t work out that well, though. The Order, the governing body for magicians, and the king seem to have their own plans with her, none of them caring in the least that she just wants to leave that blasted city behind and return to the peace and quite of her profession as a healer.
And then there is Enric, a high ranking magician in the Order thanks to his considerable strength, who seems to find watching her struggles an amusing diversion.

Commitments
The Order Book 2About the Book
Ram’an has, to Enric’s great relief, left Anyueel again to return to his home country – which leaves him to figure out the challenge that Eryn still presents to him in more than one area of his life.
Eryn is restless, unnerved by the Order’s demands and her own urge to do something useful. Thus an expedition into the woods to teach the herb gatherers in the city how to provide her with acceptable goods seems just the thing to do to pass the time until the new healer’s place is ready for use. Ten peaceful days of collecting plants far away from the city. Or at least that’s the plan.

Lady Stenibelle

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

 

THE 3rd TURN OF THE SHADOW TECH GODDESS

 The quest of Paymaster Stenstrom spans the planes, taking a bizarre turn in the 3rd universe, as there he is not an affluent man but a woman in desperate circumstances. Lady Stenibelle is imprisoned for her role in the Seeker Affair, is penniless, and her House of Belmont-South Tyrol is on the verge of extinction. Her spirit broken, Stenibelle is resigned to perform her sentence without fuss, do as she is told, and fade away in obscurity. However, fate is not yet finished with her. Stenibelle is in the gaze of hidden benefactors with ulterior motives. People claiming to be her dear friends come forward, yet she does not know them. The Quests of the Shadow tech Goddess proceed, and she must discover the hero that lies within or face total oblivion. The disgraced 30th daughter of the House of Belmont will either be the final stake driven into its dying heart, or the ray of light that comes to save it and all else that follows.

Tell us about your writing –  What genre do you prefer to write?

I write science fiction/fantasy books. Very low on the science, very high on the fantasy. I have a giant-sized imagination that’s extruded from my brain like a slushie at the gas station, and such a genre is well-suited for me.

 

What books, stories, other publications that you’ve written are your personal favorites?

I don’t think I have a personal favorite, I’m happy with them all. Essentially, I write stories that I like to read. I’m fairly minimalist when it comes to floral descriptions, I’ve been taught plot is king, and I’m a really good plotter.

 

Anything new coming up?

The next book in the series is Book 10: The House of Bloodstein: Perlamum, followed by The House of Bloodstein: Mentralysis. I’m very excited for this series. It should be a lot of fun.

 

What gets your creative juices going? Do you write to a music, and do you want to share your playlist?

 

I love writing at night–that usually gets my juices flowing. When I listen to music, I usually listen to darker, more depressing sort of tunes. One of my usual soundtracks is “Bella Lugosi’s Dead” by Bauhaus and the soundtrack to the Fear Effect.

 

What about you as a person? What do you do to relax? Favorite movies or tv shows? Hobbies?

I have all sorts of interests. I love caving, I love crawling in the deep unseen places. I also love wandering through huge, craggy buildings like hospitals and old hotels. I really can’t say what my favorite film would be–I have many that I love, and the list changes all the time. My current favorite TV show is “Vikings” on the History Channel though I also like “Longmire” on Netflicks as well.

 

What color would you wear if you had only one choice? 

Red and Gray (I’m a Buckeye fan)
