Fantasy & Sci-Fi: Highlights of the Week #5


Wondering what’s new? Well here are the highlights on what has caught my eye. Come take a gander at the weekly book picks, book reviews, updates about The Knight’s Order, and more.

Did you know?

  • The Indie Author Fringe: Frankfurt was last weekend. You may be interested in it if you are an author, or are thinking about becoming an author. They have a lot of useful information. If you missed it, don’t worry. All the posts and videos will still be there for awhile.
  • October 26 is National Pumpkin Day. It makes sense I suppose. Our pumpkins will be all carved and ready for Halloween that’s just around the corner.
  • November is National Novel Writing Month, when authors can officially (or unofficially) try and write as many words for their novel as they can. Officially the goal is 50,000 words in 30 days. Since I’m still planning Knights of Mythreth Book 2, I expect my word count will be less. But, I really want to plug away and get a bunch done for Book 2, so I’ll keep you in the loop of how it’s progressing.

The Knight’s Order rank on Amazon US reached #242 in the fairy tales category (best was #244 previously). *happy dance*


On Amazon Canada, my rank reached #24 at one point in the mythology category (on page 2).  It reached page 2 of mythology again, ranked at #37. It was located right after Lord of the Rings! *swoons*

Relaxation and Fun

oblivionI’m playing Oblivion for the second time. I haven’t played it for awhile, and I really felt like a fantasy game that I haven’t explored too recently. This time, I’m an arrow slinging, sword swinging, acrobatic thief with some magic abilities.
