Author Interview by Scott Mullins at This Is Writing

Hey all!

I wanted to share an interview Stephan did with Scott Mullins at You can check out the post here.

Scott’s site is an awesome resources for writers and readers as he has posts offering writing/marketing tips, and readers can possibly find interviews of their favorite authors or find new authors/books as he also posts book reviews/book excerpts(hint:excerpts of Once Lost Lords and Trials of the Chief are there too!) Thank you, Scott, for the opportunity!


Continue Online and Royal Scales Update



Hi guys, Samantha here with a short blog post!

As promised I’m updating to share that both Continue Online Book 2 and Royal Scales Book 2 have completed professional editing and the new manuscripts have been uploaded to all available channels.

What does this mean for those of you who already have a copy? Well, if you purchased either book through Amazon you’ll have to contact their customer service and request the book to be “unlocked” to update to the latest version since it is not an automatic process (not for us anyway!)

Continue Online Book 3 is currently being worked on by our fabulous editor, Cassie @ Joy Editing, and is due back on November 20th THEN Book 4’s edits begin on November 21st! We are going back-to-back with these edits, as the 5th and final book of Continue Online edits starts on December 1st — that’s right, it’ll be fully edited before releasing in January 2017. Oh…and a little tease, our cover for Book 5 is done and we will be doing a reveal sometime later this month!

One last note before my “short” post ends-we received another review of Once Lost Lords by lovely Hannah over at Paperback Reading and More. Please check it out!

Enjoy your morning 😉


Friday Face-Off – Friday 4th November

Hi guys, Samantha here!

So as you all know Stephan is participating in NaNoWriMo which doesn’t leave a lot of time for new posts or content. Today’s reblog comes from Steven over at Books and Beyond Reviews where he’s awesomely featured Stephan’s covers for Royal Scales Book 1 – if you hadn’t noticed we got a sparkling brand new cover designed by Dafeenah @ IndieDesignz and we couldn’t be happier and the consensus so far on his post is that others seem to like it also!

Thank you so much, Steven, and we’re looking forward to the review!

Books and Beyond Reviews

Friday Face-Off is an idea originally thought up by Books By Proxy which I stole from the fantastic The Tattooed Book Geek. The idea originally was to compare UK and US covers based on an assigned theme each week and choose the winning cover. I will be twisting it slightly: not specifically US and UK covers, just different editions.

This week’s theme is a cover with a wanderer: “Nomad is an island.”

I am currently reading a fantastic fantasy book called Once Lost Lords by Stephan Morse. Earlier this week he kindly sent me his hot-off-the-press new cover art for the book, which is perfect for the book, and lent well to this theme.

Cover A:

Cover B:

Cover C:

And the winner is… COVER B!

When Stephan informed me he was working with an artist on a new cover for this book, I was excited to see what they would…

Once Lost Lords – Royal Scales Book 1 Review by Jeyran Main


Hi guys, Samantha here!

So Stephan is a little behind on posting a new Fiasco chapter and I know he has another book review to write in the works, this week has been demanding on him so he hasn’t had time to dedicate to writing. Instead, I thought I would share a review done by a really sweet lady named Jeyran. Here’s a short snippet from her review:

The battles were epic and the fights very pleasantly explained. Stephan Morse’s art in literature is superb. He writes in such a manner that you can effortlessly visualize the scenes in your head. I believe this skill is something not many writers have, and I congratulate him for his talent.

Read the rest on her blog – Review Tales and I think the coolest part is she did an audio review, you can LISTEN to the review, how awesome is that?

What did you think of the review? Comment here!

No Game Review Today, ReBlog of another Author’s writing process

Hey guys, Samantha here! So I’m kind of cheating today, I had told Stephan I would schedule posting one game review a week but the truth is there aren’t any games I’ve played recently (other than Pokemon Go and World of Warcraft) and even then it’s not a whole lot of time spent on those games as I’m taking care of our almost 5-year-old and our 5-week-old.

Instead, I’d like to share a post by Chantelle Atkins from her blog that I truly enjoyed reading and I think writers and readers alike will appreciate seeing her writing process as an author. It’s Not Done…Until It’s Done!

I often get asked how I know when the book I’m working on is finished. If you’ve been following my struggles with The Tree of Rebels, you will know that I have now lost count of the amo…
