With two book releases in a single month, everything has been busy. However, I’ve found the time to write several guest blogs concerning my new books as well as my thoughts on the genre.
At RisingShadow I have, Pulp Heroes: Why We Love Them. I discuss how pulp heroes are not just some forgotten heroes of a bygone era and why they appeal to us (hint: I talk about James Bond).
SF Signal hosted , Sword and Sorcery: A More Intimate Fantasy, where I explain why I think Sword & Sorcery is a much more fun and relatable genre than Epic Fantasy.
Over at The Quillery, I shared, So We Saved The World…Now What?. There I discuss how sequels needlessly have to up the stakes in every installment and why I rebelled against that in Hounacier by simply changing them.
At Singular Points I have, Story Inspirations: The History and Hidden Places of New Orleans. Here I share the story of how I hadn’t planned to write Hounacier as Book 2 until a trip to New Orleans completely changed my mind.
Check them out. If you like them, or have anything to add, please leave a comment. I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts.
Ragnarok Publications is hosting a Facebook Release event on Monday March 21st 8-10EDT. We’ll have some guest authors (Cat Rambo, Kenny Soward, Jaym Gates, Tim Marquitz, and Lincoln Crisler), give away some free books (I’ll be giving out an Audible version of Damoren and a Black Raven pendant), and have ourselves a good time. Come by. Laugh with us. Score free stuff.
Finally, for anyone in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, I’ll be speaking at the Tarrant County College Trinity River Campus on April 16th at 2:00.
That’s all for now.
