Gifts from Authors – Happy Friday!

Hi, Samantha here! Stephan returned to work today after another few weeks off (see previous post about 4 herniated discs!) His current plans involve posting the last few chapters of The Fiasco – In News to close out the book, I’ve reached chapter Part XX – Does This Shit Ever Make Sense? in my ‘editing’ pass, and I have to say this has definitely been a crazy ride compared to Continue Online and Royal Scales.

Anywho, in the meantime I wanted to share two gifts from two authors we’ve had the pleasure of meeting and talking to through the process of him writing and then doing reviews.

The above pictures are of the Christmas gift we received from E.H. Nolan(I know, we’re so late in sharing this!), a signed copy of her book Like a Closed Fist. You remember Stephan reviewed this book back in December, and it was also the FIRST book outside of the Fantasy genre to receive a score of 5/5! This is huge to me because Stephan typically prefers the Fantasy/Science Fiction genre, that he could enjoy a smart, well-written book outside his comfort zone was a happy surprise. The second happy surprise? (while we knew she wanted to use a blurb of his review for her webpage, we didn’t expect it to be in the paperback book!) His review is featured inside and outside the book. When I realized this, I immediately got the warm fuzzies, what a humbling experience to be featured in another author’s book. I know Stephan feels the same. Thank you, Edie! Please check out her book on Amazon and learn more about this amazing author on her website.

The next set of pictures is a thoughtful and completely unexpected gift basket from author of LitRPG novel – Ascend Online – Luke Chmilenko. As mentioned earlier, Stephan shared his back trouble woes and a little over two weeks ago this arrived from Canada! (we are in Washington State). This assortment was so amazing, I’ve never tried anything from Canada, that I’m aware of, and I have to say the ‘Dorians’ cutes / crackers were surprisingly tasty! It also included maple syrup, maple tree filtered water(o_O), and my personal favorite COFFEE! lol Thank you, Luke, for being a good friend to Stephan!

~And if you haven’t checked it out already, his LitRPG novel has over 200 reviews and a rating of 4.8 on Amazon!

Well, that’s all for now! I hope to have a recommendation/review post on my newest video game I’ve been playing – Story of Seasons Trio of Towns – spoiler: it’s super fun!

Until next time.
