Genres

What is it about genre fiction that pulls in so many readers? I have had a huge love of fantasy for years. I'm also a fan of sci-fi, though it is my second love. I have my own reasons for loving fantasy. I love the new and beautiful worlds where anything can happen. All the rules are rewritten in this world. I can escape to a place where I love the main character because he is all the things that I am not or love understands my own point of view better than most of my friends can. Fantasy is a place were I can escape for an hour or two out the day, and all it takes for me to find it again is to open the book or fire up my kindle app.

But, one thing I want to mention is, there are lots of genres and sub-genres. There is epic fantasy, sword and sorcery, urban fantasy, dark fantasy, and many more, and that is just in the fantasy genre. So, what is it about genre that draws us in. Leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite genre is and why. I'm curious as to what types of stories people read and why. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I'll be here reading and writing away!

I wanted to show these to anyone who hasn't seen them yet. This is a great video series with some awesome information for writers. And, of course, it features Patrick Rothfuss, one of my all-time favorite authors (and of course his epic beard). I bow down to the bearded one. . .all right. Let's get this show on the road -- onward, to glory!!!










A Chosen Path in the Editing Stage

A CHOSEN PATH, the second installment of the Colliding Empires Short Story Series, is now officially in the editing phase. I hope to get some feedback from my writing group in the next couple of weeks, and I have been sifting through it on my own to find those nasty little grammatical errors that crop up when the first draft is done. I hope to have it published on Amazon in 2 to 3 weeks. I would like to thank Jeffrey Kosh for his covers. He will be providing me with the covers for all ten of the short stories that I plan to publish for this series. If you are an author and are looking for covers that easily fit into your budget, I would suggest giving his web page a quick look. Thanks everyone!

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…
