And for all you fantasy lovers out there, and let’s face it, you wouldn’t be here in the kingdom if you didn’t love a bit of magic, here is something wonderful for you to read.  This is another collection of stories from four very talented writers that you will enjoy… So…  Go get it, read it, love it!

Accura, the goddess of chaos, has begun to unleash her newest plot to send Cetros spiraling into turmoil. Once her brother and sister gods and goddesses learn of her scheme, most bring forth their champions to try and restore order while the others attempt to take advantage of the situation for their own purposes. Will their lack of a cohesive plan only serve to further Accura’s cause and doom Cetros to be forever ruled by chaos? Or will the champions succeed in their quests and allow their world to regain some semblance of normalcy? This anthology includes seven stories, one for each of the gods and goddesses of Cetros: Chaos, Magic, Death, Plants and Earth, Animals, the Seas, and Weather.

Bill, Bill, Bill…  Where is Bill?  Wait!  Not that Bill.  Bill Friday, of course.  The poet!  Though, it wouldn’t surprise me all that much if he knew Kung Fu too.  Anywho, this is another shameless friend promotion.  Have you read any of Bill’s poems before? You should.  I believe I’ve shared them before.  He has a knack for capturing a moment and then twisting on its head to make you think or to hit you in the feels or both.  Get his books.  Read them.  Expand your mind and your world.

A Death on Skunk Street is the first stand-alone book by Los Angeles poet William S. Friday. Subtitled, “…a life in poems”, the book is both a remembrance, and a look forward, at what Bernard Malamud (“The Natural”) called, “The life we learn with… and the life we live after that”. Skunk Street is a work of visions, written by a blue-collar college drop-out with the eloquence of an angry Psalmist. Parts neon and noir, full moon and sunsets, and the words that come from feelings too often unexpressed. From loneliness in a sea of humanity to, comfort in the company of self. There’s blood, and brains, printed on every page. In the author’s own words… “Somewhere along the way, after all the years and all the experiences, you realize that the only thing you have to show for them is your recollection of them. And then, you write. So I guess I’d have to say that I’m the guy who writes what he remembers.”

As mentioned last week, The Erratic Sun has a sequel… and this is it.  And it is every bit worth the read as well.  TES was Revis and I figuring out how to tell a story together and The Information Broker is Revis and I at our finest.  It’s a big book.  It’s a big story.  Haven’t read it yet?  Go!  Go now!

Captain Terry Dadam and the crew of the Erratic Sun returned to their home planet of Spiron after surviving the largest manhunt the galaxy had ever seen. Scarred from the harrowing ordeal, they hoped to reclaim some semblance of their previous lives. They soon realized that the eyes of the powerful were still watching them and going back to the way things had been was impossible.When Joules, the foremost information broker in the galaxy, reaches out to them for help, they are presented with a dangerous opportunity. If they agree to help Joules, he will get them back their lives. In the process they run the risk of facing the very people they have tried to avoid. Dadam and his crew must race from planet to planet to stay ahead of everything coming their way and, along the way, they discover that the cost of doing business with Joules may be more than they are able to pay.

And then leave a review.  Because, you know, indy writers don’t have the huge financial backing of major publishing companies to buy reviews for their authors.  We have to beg and bribe and blackmail… and, wait, what were we talking about?
