The Fiasco In News Review: Sarcasm Is A Superpower

Hi guys!

I reached out to Jamie at The Comic Vault blog, to see if he’d be interested in reading/reviewing The Fiasco and to my delight he accepted! Well, today he posted his review, I’m absolutely floored. Thank you, Jamie, for taking the time to read, and to post a wonderful review.

Book Review: Her Majesty’s Wizard by Christopher Stasheff

Today’s review is a portal fiction, one of the originals that got me started years ago. Her Majesty’s Wizard—book one in a fun series.

If you’ve been a long-time fantasy reader, but have never touched the Wizard in Rhyme series —then you need to back up and give this one a go. Seriously, look at the first book. I started with one later in the series, then picked up the first one. It was very enjoyable.

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.

Final Book Review: The Magician’s Workshop, Volume One by Christopher Hansen and J.R. Fehr

Hi guys, Samantha here with a side note: as you may have noticed the past few weeks Stephan has been posting book reviews, this post marks the last book in his review queue since closing his request for reviews. We want to thank everyone who submitted their book for him to read, I know he enjoyed quite a few books that were sent his way and he’s always interested in seeing how other authors write. This will be the final book review he does for his blog, however, we hope you have enjoyed reading them and that you’ll continue to visit the site for updates on his other works in progress and news.

As with most books, what pulls me are three things. Character interaction, fantasy elements, and readability. This book manages to get my interest on all three fronts. It’s not perfect, but it’s certainly interesting.

Book Review: The Final Death (The Fourth’s Duology Book 2) by Andrew Mowere

The Final Death is an interesting story idea involving a bit of Norse, magic knights, and grand plots, but is frustratingly hard to read.

41lduimfgyl

 Our first character is a necromancer in a high fantasy world. There are roots in the story from Norse mythos – but with new twists to keep the story fresh in a lot of respects. The basic plot is to try and take a system set up by the Allfather and change the rules so more people can get into the afterlife. It’s suggested that if (when) things go wrong with this attempt – they’ll open up a portal to the demon world which will probably end life as they know it.

Book Review: Enden (Wars of Enden #1) by David Kummer

Enden (Wars of Enden, #1) is a gritty novel set in a land that’s about to tear itself apart from the worst event of all, ill-timed political backstabbing.

Okay. The first eight percent or so of the novel is up front world detail material. This means readers choosing a ‘look inside’ might not notice anything of the actual main content itself – so potential readers beware. I read absolutely none of it because it feels like a homework assignment. The real content starts much farther down – and using the ‘look inside’ you’ll barely get a taste of what the story is.
