“We were evil once and the gods are still punishing us…”

Tuesday, October 29th, 2019

 

Ren Garcia is a Science Fiction/Fantasy author and Texas native who grew up in western Ohio. He has been writing since before he could write, often scribbling alien lingo on any available wall or floor with assorted crayons. He attended The Ohio State University and majored in English Literature. 
 
Ren has been an avid lover of anything surreal since childhood. He also has a passion for caving, urban archeology, taking pictures of clouds, and architecture. He currently lives in Columbus, Ohio with his wife, and their four dogs.

Three books in one:
The Dead Held Hands
The Machine
The Temple of the Exploding Head
Starfarers and explorers, the League
settled on Kana thousands of years ago. They found it to be a paradise, a
perfect, virtually uninhabited planet waiting just for them in the cradle of
space.
Lovely Kana … it was too good to be
true …
But, all was not as it seemed.
Simmering beneath the ground was a demented god who had soaked Kana in blood
for untold ages, luring in victims, lying to them, and rejoicing in their
suffering as they died at the hands of his dark angels.
And there will be blood again … From
his Temple in the ground, the Horned God stirs.
When Lord Kabyl of Blanchefort, a
young man troubled by the weight of the world, dares give his heart to a girl
from a mysterious ancient household, one that pre-dates the League itself, he
comes to know the shadows of the past that hover over her.
He comes to know of the Horned God,
and for love he is destined to face him. All roads lead to the Temple of the
Exploding Head, a place of evil and death, rooted in the ancient past, but also
tied to the distant future.
“We were evil once,” she said, “and
the gods are still punishing us…”

 

Snippet:
She
began having visions when she was five years old. All of her kind had visions,
and hers were especially vivid. She could see the future, and she didn’t want
to. Many of her family saw their deaths in their visions, at the hands of the
demons, and they crumpled up in sadness and waited for it to happen—waited for
the end to come. She watched one of her brothers waste away in such a state.
She went to her grandmother and pleaded
“Why, why does this have to be?”
And her grandmother calmed her as only she could and said: “Nothing has
to be. Nothing is indelibly etched. If you see bad future, or you see a
darkness coming, then make it better. Keep your head clear and fight for what
you want, as I have done. How do you think I’ve lasted so long?”
Her aunts and uncles didn’t like that sort of talk. What sort of thing
was that to tell a child? Filling her head with dreams and impossibilities.
Their motto was simpler and much more stark: Live your life while you can and
hope for the best, and, when the end comes, let your head swarm and take you to
places where there is no pain and sadness, where the demons can’t hurt you.
As if such a place could exist.  
 
–Lady Sammidoran learning the
brutality of the world.

follows the path that she believes is her only choice. Relying on
others to lead the way, she is forced to face some of her deepest
fears.

Falls, is the first book in the Nature’s Fury series, which explores
the Earth’s response to humans poisoning her streams, abusing her

that rekindled her love of books. After devouring that series, she
quickly became captivated by dystopian novels.

 

 

After
several years of reading them, she decided to take a stab at writing
one that combined her love for nature with her fear of human
destruction

Raised in the dark under the lash of the Black Hat Sisterhood, when the woman who would become known as Kat, is sent on a suicide mission into the heart of the League, she was not expected to survive. Her mission: discover the identity of the fabled Shadow tech Goddess, a being who does not exist. All other considerations, including her possible death, are secondary.
 

 

But, Kat is guided by higher powers, by merciful hands that feed her, clothe her and whisper in her ear. As she watches the sun rise for the first time, she recalls their words: “Be strong,” they said. “You have much to live for.

———————————————————————————-
 
Interview with Author Ren Garcia Answering as Kat, the 1st Countess of the House of Belmont-South Tyrol:
1.
When you walk into a room what do you
notice first? Second?
Oh, you’re going to think I’m weird or
something, but the wallpaper. I just LOVE wallpaper. I like to look at it, and
I like to touch it, especially if it’s padded wallpaper like we have in the
Chalk House. Hehe, you know, I even like licking
the wallpaper when nobody’s watching. I guess countesses aren’t supposed to do
that sort of thing. But, yeah, I like the taste of the glue. The second thing I
look for is a bathroom. I love sitting in bathrooms. Yeah, I’m mental, I guess.
2.
How would you change the world?  The
things around you? The people around you?
I don’t know—I’m
still pretty new to the world and how it works. I guess I just want everybody
to love each other. I’ve spent such a long time not being loved, I want to make
up for it now. Love all around, everybody happy. Let’s dance and love each
other. Why not?
3.
How do you learn best? On
the floor, after lunch. I love sitting on the floor. I feel all caged up in a
chair. Yeah, I’m weird, right? But, that’s how G taught me to read mostly, us
sitting nose to nose on the floor. I think I’ve thrown more chairs than have
actually sat in them. Chairs are great for throwing, but, they kind of hurt my
back.
4.
What are your goals in life? You’re
making my head hurt, haha. I just want to be a good wife and a good mom once we
have kids. That might sound simple, I guess, but when you’ve lived underground
under the Black Hat’s heel for most of your life, it’s the simple things you
crave. Oh—I guess I want to master my Shadow tech too. I’m trying, I practice
all the time, and I’m trying not to cheat using NatalZ of Mund’s ‘squash data’
we got in Vain. That’s cheating. I want to figure out how to make StT’s, like
NatalZ could. But, it’s really, really hard. Hey, you’re not a Black Hat are
you?
5.
What unusual hobbies or interests do you
have?
(Kat blushes) Well, ok, I’ll just tell you. I love tying G up. I’ll tie him to
anything. Have sex isn’t the same unless he’s trussed-up like a Nether Day
goose. Umm, that doesn’t freak you out or anything, does it? I mean, it’s all
in good fun. I’m sure other countesses tie their guys up—look what they’re
missing out on. I love my G … but I really, really, really love him all tied
up.
 6.
What are you most afraid of? Well,
I really don’t like being shut into confined spaces. It’s not something I like
talking about much. I just don’t like small spaces.
7.
If you had one wish, what would it be? (Kat
tears up) My Sisters … Bird, Walker, even Wheel. I’d give anything to have them
back. Really miss them. I’m sorry, I need to step away for a moment …
8.
What do you like best about yourself? I
like my hair. Yeah. I like the color and I like my temples freshly shaved. I
like how my hair whips around when it’s windy. I could sit in the boudoir for
hours letting them comb my hair. I used to not like my hair color, but, as few
other people seem to have it, I guess it makes me stand out a little.
9.
What do you like least about yourself? I’m
too short. When I want to kiss my G, I’ve got to stand on something, or he’s
got to stoop. I loved how tall Walker was, that’s how I’d like to be: longer
legs, way tall, my head in the clouds.
10. What
do you think other people think of you?
I have no
idea.  G likes me, his sister Lyra likes
me, and the other 28 sisters are coming around. I guess that’s fine with me for
now. The people I love, love me back, and that’s great. The people in Tyrol
seem cool, I don’t have issues with anybody. I know I’m probably not what they
were expecting as far as a countess and all, but, what you see is what you get.
I’m happy, and that’s all that matters.

Teen Paranormal Mystery
 
Matt’s
life changes forever when a family of druids moves into the
dilapidated Victorian mansion next door. The story of an unlikely
friendship, the clash of two completely different cultures, secret
magic, and a search for the lost Hawthorne treasure.
Fifteen-year-old
Matt Mitchell was having the worst summer imaginable. Matt’s misery
started when a drunk driver killed his mother. Then his father moved
him and his twin sister to the small town of Hawthorne in rural
Indiana, as far as his grieving father could take from the ocean that
Matt’s mother had loved. At the new high school, three bullies are
determined to make Matt miserable. And to top it off, Matt learns
that the recluse who lives in the ‘haunted house” next door is
none other than Old Lady Hawthorne, the town’s infamous witch and
murderer. Matt’s terrible summer is turning into an awful autumn
when something quite unexpected happens. Old Lady Hawthorne’s niece
and her three children arrive, and Matt meets Gerallt.

Jeffrey Bardwell is the author of The Scion’s Delight, a prequel to his Mage Conspiracy series

Friday, August 2nd, 2019

Jeffrey, welcome to my blog. How long have you been writing?

I have been publishing fantasy novels since 2017. The actual writing began when I was six, a few decades earlier.

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

I was raised in a rural town in northern Virginia, bounced arund the country a bit from Texas to Missouri, and then landed back in a different small town in central Virginia. Life is funny like that.

How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?

If it sticks in my mind after the notion / dream / inspiration strikes, and I want to find out more, it’s a keeper.

Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

My beta readers have helped spur a marked improvement in my writing. My first book was a hot mess.

What is the name of your book?

My new book is The Scion’s Delight, the prequel to my Mage Conspiracy series. It was inspired by a dream about a haughty princess trying to repair her broken death maze to torture rats. When I realized she was the younger incarnation of the evil empress in my main series, I knew I had a good story brewing.

 

 

Tell us more about it. Perhaps a back cover blurb.

A cunning trap. A whiff of magic. A burst of steam.

Princess Cordelia has steel plate ambition, a mind like twisting brass gears, and the political might of tin foil. The girl aims to ratchet the Iron Empire into a glorious new day of gears and steam. The entire palace is arrayed against her. The chambermaids disdain her. The emperor ignores her. The mages, championed by Lord Oriolanus, lead a brisk campaign of lies and coercion. Those evil magic users threaten to tighten their grip upon the land even though machines are clearly superior. By the gods’ oil-stained hands, why can’t anyone else see her vision of the ideal future?

Just when Cordelia’s future threatens to slip back into medieval quagmire, a lone stranger with ice blue eyes and flowing blond hair arrives from the savage north. The handsome barbarian is destined to make both the hearts of the empire and the princess tremble. Does this spell doom or salvation for the girl’s fragile dream?

Explore The Scion’s Delight, the fantasy romance prequel novella of The Mage Conspiracy series. Discover a world of adventure and intrigue where lies cut deeper than any sword.

Do you have a favorite character, why?

In this new book, I think Cordelia’s retiring servant Fortinbras is my favorite. His name is an homage to a character from one of my favorite fantasy authors growing up (email the correct guess who to jhbardwell@gmail.com for a free ebook!), and his deadpan pissing contest with the ruler of an empire was a joy to write.

 

Here is the other books in the The Mage Conspiracy

Book one

 

 

Book two

 

Book three                                                               

 

What kind of impact do you expect your works to have in the reader’s lives?

I write to edify and enlighten, but most of all to entertain. I think Erin Kahn said it much, much better than I can: A book by Jeffrey Bardwell is always a good time: exciting, dangerous, gritty, and multi-layered . . . fast-paced, entertaining, and psychologically intense.

Do you have any advice for authors trying to break into the industry?

Keep writing. Don’t be afraid to push yourself out there. Your first book will probably suck. Write another. I went back and rewrote the first book in my Artifice Mage series three times before I was happy with it (and the book truly deserved the title “epic” fantasy.)

Where can we find your book?

The Dream Defenders… discover a book with a fresh voice, genuinely humorous characters, and a compelling, original storyline

Monday, July 22nd, 2019
The
Dream Defenders
by
Neal DenHartog
Genre:
YA Fantasy 
 

A
vivid, dangerous dream world. Real-life consequences. Better ready
your defense.

When
fourteen-year-old Nolan Erling wakes up with a headache for the
fourth straight day, he suspects the likely culprit to be any number
of things—from his annoying baby brother, to vehicular crashes with
his elderly neighbor, or even his questionable late-night food
choices—not his dreams.

 

 

Aeryn
Sandman knows the true cause, though. She is a junior agent with the
DREAM Institute, a secret organization tasked with protecting the
world’s population while they sleep, and she’s on her first
assignment.

 

 

Her
mission: infiltrate Nolan’s life—and his dreams—and keep him
safe, all while persuading him to join their protective force.

 

 

But
recruitment missions are no walk in the park, and Aeryn’s goes
horribly wrong when Nolan’s powers unwittingly unleash two dream
creatures locked away in a restricted area of the dream world. While
Aeryn and Nolan search for ways to contain the escaped beings, they
uncover a much greater conspiracy.

 

 

For
these dreams can kill, and someone is orchestrating their actions in
the dream world. If Aeryn and Nolan can’t figure out who is behind
it, no dreamer will be safe, and neither will the organization that
defends them.

 

Discover
a book with a fresh voice, genuinely humorous characters, and a
compelling, original storyline. The Dream Defenders will
appeal to readers of all ages.

Tracked by unknown assassins, they must figure out whom they can trust and who is behind the plot

Tuesday, July 9th, 2019


Thanks for stopping by! Take a look at this brand-new fantasy adventure story with a hint of romance by author Annie Douglass Lima. 
You can download a copy of the ebook for free between July 9th and 11th!

Book Description:
    Life as
the king’s younger sister should be exciting.

   Not for
Princess Kalendria. She’s sick of the dissent and of constantly having her
family undermined by those who think they could rule Malorn better than King
Korram.
   Hoping to
lighten the mood in the palace, Kalendria plans a ball to celebrate her
seventeenth birthday. It doesn’t hurt that their handsome Alasian ally King
Jaymin has promised to attend, and she’s been waiting for him to notice her for
as long as she can remember.
   But
unfriendly forces have their own party plans. When Kalendria, Korram, and
Jaymin barely survive an assassination attempt, their only recourse is to flee
into the wilderness. Tracked by unknown assassins, they must figure out whom
they can trust and who is behind the plot. Can Kalendria help her brother
reclaim his throne – oh, and catch Jaymin’s attention while she’s at it –
before they are all killed and war destroys both kingdoms?

Series Information:



King of Malorn is book 5 in the Annals

of Alasia. But don’t worry if you haven’t read the others; it will still make sense on its own. 


Each of the first four books can stand on its own as well. They each deal with events surrounding the same major political incident: the invasion
of the kingdom of Alasia by the neighboring kingdom of Malorn. 



Prince of Alasia begins on the night of the Invasion and
describes what happens to twelve-year-old Prince Jaymin after he is forced to
flee for his life. 

In
the Enemy’s Service

features a girl as the protagonist and tells the story of those who were not
able to escape from the Alasian palace when the enemy invaded. 

Prince of Malorn begins several months earlier and
focuses on the Malornian perspective of the events leading up to the
Invasion. 

The Nameless Soldier shows how a young Alasian soldier lives through the Invasion but then has to survive and make a name for himself in enemy-occupied Alasia. 


In each of the books, main
characters from the others make brief appearances and interact with each other
at the point where the timeframes and settings overlap. 



I also have a short
ebook of “interviews” that I conducted with the characters in the other three
books. Annals of Alasia: The Collected
Interviews
is not available on Amazon, but I send a free copy to anyone who
signs
up for my mailing list

(to receive updates when I release new books or occasionally offer them for free).

Dark times are upon the land of
Nereth. Centuries have passed since the rightful heir to the throne was
banished. The people are losing hope in ancient legend, which foretells of one
who will rise up, overthrow the evil king and queen, and restore peace. Like
all others in Nereth, Edlyn has suffered greatly. Orphaned as a child, Edlyn
grew up as the serf of a drunken lord. Now a spirited seventeen-year-old, Edlyn
works to buy her freedom while fighting off the unwanted advances of Sheriff
Hurst. One morning, Edlyn discovers a young man hiding in the stable. He is
fleeing from Sheriff Hurst and inflicted with a sword wound that will surely be
fatal without her help. In a split-second decision, Edlyn conceals the young
man from Sheriff Hurst and begins nursing him back to health. As the young
man’s strength returns, Edlyn learns that his name is Maddock, and she is
stunned to find that he has come from the mysterious land to the north. Maddock
soon comes to Edlyn’s aid, rescuing her from Sheriff Hurst. Suddenly declared
outlaws, both Edlyn and Maddock must escape for their lives to enchanted
Ravenshire Forest and then the desolate mountains beyond. As their adventure
unfolds, Edlyn and Maddock discover that their meeting may have been more than
chance, for their lives prove bound by a fate that neither of them could
possibly have imagined.

Snippet:
Edlyn slowly turned to Maddock. “I
presume this is about you.”
            Maddock
did not respond. Wincing, he reached out with one arm to brace himself against
the wall while keeping his other hand pressed on his abdomen.
            “I
could be imprisoned for helping a fugitive, or killed,” Edlyn went on
frankly, shutting the stable door. “It depends on what you have
done.”
            Maddock
found his voice, “I will not put you in danger.”
            He
made another move to leave but swayed and began to fall. Edlyn lunged forward,
catching Maddock in her arms. Staggering under the weight of his limp body, she
lowered him to the dirt.
            “Help
me leave. I must get away from here,” Maddock begged, attempting to get
up.
            From
the sounds outside, Edlyn knew that the riders were nearly upon them. She also
saw that Maddock’s breathing was growing shallow and the life in his dark eyes
fading. He would not escape those who hunted him. For one moment, Edlyn
hesitated, looking between Maddock and the stable door. Then she spoke upward,
as if to the sky:
            “This
young man might be an outlaw, but may the spirits of Ravenshire Forest curse me
for eternity if I ever help Sheriff Hurst.”

‘Touch me, Roosa. You will see I’m real
enough.’
Touch him? Is he as crazy as I am? Okay,
so I’m going to touch him, just for my own peace of mind.
I reach out my hand, fingers extended,
trying to reach him but not move from the wall. A crooked smile appears on his
face. He takes a couple of steps forward, reaches out and touches me.
Lightning heat shoots out from him, races
up my arm, switches direction and dives into my stomach. I snatch my hand back
and grab my belly with both hands. The burning sensation knocks my knees out
from under me. I slump to the floor, still leaning on the wall. The room spins,
and my head swims. Tears mixed with stars blur my vision so there is no focusing.
Not enough air in here; my chest tightens as if the lungs inside are ready to
explode.

Snippet:
Harmonia grinned at them. “All of these herbs can
heal the sick or injured, either on their own or as part of a mixture. Many are
common plants while others are harder to find. Some, if handled incorrectly,
can be fatal.” She motioned for the students to follow her. “To prevent any
unnecessary accidents, I’ll teach you how to identify the deadliest herbs
today.”
Denya’s concern changed to curiosity. She knew which
dangerous plants to avoid back home in Burrowville, but she hadn’t realized
some of them could heal.
In the rear of the greenhouse, Harmonia stopped at a
dirt-covered table bearing three different plants. She pulled iron tongs from
her pouch and clasped a long blade of grass from the first plant. “The
goldenslasher grows wild in the desert. Notice it’s several times thicker than
your typical grass and bulges in the center. It’s also sharp enough to slice
through flesh.”

 

Pulling trimmers from her pouch, she cut off a tip
about the size of Denya’s thumb. She switched the cutters for pinchers and
pulled a golden fiber from the center of the freshly cut blade. “Tea made from
this strand will settle the most nauseated stomach.”

No matter who dares you, no matter what lures you, do not go in the spooky old house…

Monday, June 17th, 2019
Ann has been a writer since junior high, but to
pay the bills she has waited tables, delivered newspapers, cleaned other
people’s houses, taught school, and had a stint as a secretary in a rock-n-roll
radio station. She also worked as a 911 operator and a police dispatcher. 


Her fiction began to win awards during her college days. Since then she’s
published several short stories, novels, and novellas. She’s always reading and
always writing, but even if she never sold another story, Ann would not stop
writing. For her it’s a necessity, like breathing. Most of the time, it even

It was the late 60s. The Beatles had washed across America like a
British tsunami, Vietnam was a grainy, green and black dose of unreality on the
evening news, a bunch of hippies had taken over San Francisco, and there was a
heck of a rainstorm pouring down on Woodstock. But I didn’t know all that then.
I was a little bit lost, looking for something. I swear I didn’t go looking for
a ghost…well, okay, maybe I did. But I didn’t expect to find one. Heck, I was
just a kid. I didn’t expect much of anything.

Within weeks of starting at Genesis, Nia witnesses something she shouldn’t have

Would you sacrifice your humanity to save mankind?
 
IT’S THE YEAR 2828, and Domus is the last remaining country. Divided into twelve walled cities known as genuses, Domus spans what’s known as the purist lands—lands unaffected by the genetic modifications that killed all other species of mammals. But outside the walls of each genus the Immundus threaten the welfare of those within. From a young age, all citizens of Domus are trained for combat against these intruders.
 

 

At sixteen, Nia Luna knows little of the Immundus, except for the citywide alarms that ring any time an Immundus nears the genus walls. What she does know is that her own species is dying—their numbers dwindling as a mysterious disease called allagine kills many before their eleventh birthday. The same disease that ravaged her family when it took her sister.
 
When Nia is recruited into Genesis, a research company pioneering the path to a cure, she knows that her dream to find a cure for allagine is finally within her grasp. But within weeks of starting at Genesis, Nia witnesses something she shouldn’t have—something that changes everything. As she sets down a dangerous path that uncovers national secrets, Nia will have to decide not only what kind of person she wants to be but also how far she’s willing to go to save humanity.

Snippet:
I walk down the expansive
hallway. Most doors are closed, but the door to Calculus class is still open
and Mrs. Wiler is at the front of the classroom teaching. I tiptoe through the
door, hoping she won’t say anything, but the rickety-rackety-clackety of my
shoes yanks my classmates’ attention toward me—eyes prickling my skin as I make
my way to my seat. I plop myself down, the lumbar of the seat adjusts to my
body, and the desk swings into position in front of me.
“Glad you could join us,
Nia,” Mrs. Wiler says, her voice thick with sarcasm. Calculus is not my
favorite topic. I think it’s because the teacher has had it in for me all year.
I can get by, but only with Alex’s help. I’m so glad he’s in my class.
“Glad I could be here.” I give her a
just-leave-me-alone smile. She doesn’t seem too enthused by my response, but
it’s enough to appease her, so she continues her lesson.
Sabrina leans over the
moment Mrs. Wiler turns away. “Great game last night.” Sabrina’s soft voice
surfs the air like cumulus clouds on a calm day. She’s one of the brightest
students in class, and I picture her on the Genus Council one day. She’s not a
hologram either, which is nice. We attend classes with students in other
genuses, though not in person. Instead, 4D holographic forms appear in their
stead here, and I appear the same to them there. We can see, touch, hear, and
smell the students even though they aren’t here. Still. You can tell
the difference.
“Thanks,” I say.
A hand touches my left
shoulder from behind. “Alex wants you to check your messages,” whispers Robert,
a hologram from Genus Amatista, which is on the other side of Domus and used to
be called Canada. I open my messages on the screen on my desk—or dreen, as we
like to call it—being watchful of the teacher. I’m greeted by Alex’s avatar
holding balloons and throwing confetti that forms a message. It’s a group
message to Eric, Casey, and I. In tall black serif letters it reads:
It was great being teammates. Let’s all go to the promotion
party together
after apprenticeship selection.
“Alex, what would you say
is the answer to this problem?” Mrs. Wiler inquires, pointing to the
calculation on the media wall. I wonder if she knows Alex sent a message
out—she’s freaky that way. Alex scribbles on his dreen, sending the equation
and answer to the media wall for all to see. He figures out the problems in
seconds, which is why I’m glad he’s in my class. Two thumbs up appear on my
dreen from Casey and Eric. I
add my own.

The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi

Friday, April 19th, 2019

Please tell us your name?
My name is Kelvyn Fernandes, author of The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi

Kelvyn, where were you born?
I was born in Toronto, Ontario, but my parents immigrated to Canada from Mombasa, Kenya.

Cool…how long have you been writing?
Ever since I was a child, I’ve been passionate about writing. I’ve always had running storylines and new ideas constantly popping into my head. I’ve written a few short stories, but this is my first full-length novel and I’m excited to share it with the world.

Interesting, Who are your favorite authors?
My favourite authors are George R. R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson, and Haruki Murakami. Growing up, I enjoyed reading the works of JK Rowling, Emily Rodda, Kathryn Lasky, and Christopher Paolini.

Loved the Aragon Series too. Tell us why you wrote your new book?
I’ve always had ideas for fantastical tales and far-off adventures running through my mind. They would blast their way into my imagination, linger awhile, and then move on so the next idea could take its place. The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi is the first story that I will never forget. It’s the story that popped into my mind and refused to leave. The characters took hold and dragged me through a tale of incredible monsters, interesting characters, and jaw-dropping settings I had buried away in my imagination. It got to the point where the adventures started writing themselves. I had formed these characters so clearly in my mind that I no longer had to think about what they’d say or how they’d react. It was like watching a movie; I was just bearing witness to what they would do next.

I love it when characters do that. The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi, what is it about?
The Many Adventures of Peter and Fi follows the titular characters as they work together, each searching for something uniquely special to them through the four kingdoms of their known world. It’s a tale of fantastical beasts, peculiar characters, remarkable settings, and a unique brand of biochemistry-based magic. A story that focuses on meaningful character interaction, delicate world building, and intense action battles.

What age is The many adventure of Peter and Fi intended for?

I’d say the main demographic is 13-25, but the story is meant for anyone who enjoys getting lost in a fantasy world.

Sounds interesting. Is there a book trailer for your book?
You can find out more about the first volume and the plans for the Peter and Fi series as a whole here: https://youtu.be/SjR8NQWJoP0

Love the cover by the way. 🙂 Where can we find your books?
You can find Volume I of my book on
