Book Review: A MINOR MAGIC



A MINOR MAGIC, by Justin Macumber, is a coming of age fantasy story for a young teen, Skylar, who lives in a much changed Earth after mysterious fires raged across the surface about a decade earlier. Skylar, after abruptly learning she has magic, is forcibly made to leave from the only real home she has ever known since her mother died years before. Skylar is forced to deal with the landscape and the brutish world that it has become on her own for the first time in her life.


As the story unfolds, we watch as Skylar is forced to face guilt, shame, mistrust, and her strange new ability. A MINOR MAGIC is a wonderful story with interesting characters that are both believable and fun to learn about. Justin Macumber has done a great job weaving a tale that gives the audience a young, strong, female lead that doesn’t need to be dressed for the beach to impress. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a strong fantasy tale, and I look forward to reading the next book in the series when it releases, A BROKEN MAGIC.

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…
