tWoTcast and The Wheel of Time

Some people may know that Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series is my favorite fantasy series to date. The books are expertly written, and Jordan creates a world that is easily envisioned, filled with political intrigue, new species, and magic. The books caught me as soon as I started reading them. I actually found the series by accident, wandering through the fantasy section at Barnes & Noble. This was before Brandon Sanderson took the helm finishing the series after Robert Jordan passed away. Looking at the scope of the series, I am relatively new to the series. The first book I had to wait for to come out was, The Gathering Storm, the first of the books for Brandon Sanderson to pen.

One of the things I like to do is listen to podcasts about the different fantasy series I am interested in. Up until now, I have mostly listened to Dragonmount's podcast for The Wheel of Time. The crew at Dragonmount has done an incredible job at pouring through the details of the book. However, as of last week, I found a new podcast that mixes their knowledge of the book with humor. This podcast is considered a re-read podcast, intended for people who have already read the books at least once already. This podcast does include explicit content and is only intended for a mature audience. The podcast is called tWoTcast, by Tom, Joe, and Jono. They can be found on iTunes, at the tWoTcast website, and on Twitter -- @twotcast They are an incredibly funny trio that I recommend for anyone who has gone through the series thus far and are looking for a good laugh. Check them out and let them know that Jacob sent you!

A Bit of Reevaluation

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I figured I might as well throw out some updates. Anyone who has been following along should probably want to know that the first five short stories of the Colliding Empires have been released into a single file called "Volume 1."

Another thing that is probably the most notable is the fact that I haven't written a post since back in December. I've quite noticeably been derailed in both my blogging and my writing. I haven't done much writing at all. I apologize for that, but it is also one of my cycles that I definitely need to change.

The second, and most recent development, is that I've decided to remove myself from Twitter and delete my Facebook page. I felt that most of what was being put out to the internet on those media channels were shameless self-promotion. That isn't really what I wanted those to become. I don't like the idea of hitting people over the head with that message. And, to be qui…

The Call of Fate now Available for PreOrder

My new short story The Call of Fate is available for preorder.  Here is a short excerpt:

Wogan Nance, more commonly referred to as Boot Chuck by his squad, looked out over the sprawling camp of the army. Tents were lined up orderly in rows for as far as the eye could see. Soldiers milled around cook fires, sharpened swords, and fletched arrows, mostly staying close to their own squad's compound of tents and supplies. He wondered how many soldiers were like himself, hiding their true nature to keep from being used up in short order. He wondered how many secret mages, or at least those with the ability to become mages lurked in midst of the throng of these men and women.

Mages were a hot commodity in the Imperial Army as it swept across the continent claiming new lands for its own. Magic turned the tide in battle for whichever side had the most numerous mages. While ability helped greatly, a large number of fledgling mages could overcome a seasoned magical user in due time, at the cos…

Gathering Steam

Hello everyone! Not much of an update today. I've gotten a few hundred words written, probably about a hundred or a little less in the Colliding Empires. I've gotten a few paragraphs written on a possible scifi novel and a novella that I had been working on.

I've been listening to Nathan Lowell's TRADER TALES. I always come back to this series. I love Ishmael's voice in that series, and I'm really looking forward to the next installment SEEKERS and another branch in that universe SMUGGLERS. I've taken a break to listening to Steven Erikson's Malazan books and have gone back to some podcasts:  The Dead Robots' Society, StarTalk Radio, Android Central, and Magic the Amateuring.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and ...

Until the morrow and may your journey be meaningful!
