Book Picks

Disclaimer: This is merely a list that has caught my attention. In no way can I ensure the quality is up to your standards. The choice to explore this content is entirely your call.

Among Wolves By R.A. Hakok [YA Dystopian]

A decade ago, a nuclear war left the country a wasteland. Gabriel and a small group of survivors have been living in a bunker deep within the mountains — but a disturbing discovery on a scavenging trip makes him question everything… A riveting dystopian read!

Reminds me of the game Fallout.

Outriders By Jay Posey [Science Fiction]

When an elusive villain comes back from the dead, Captain Lincoln Suh leads an elite squad of secret operatives on a high-risk mission to stop her. “Action-packed science fiction that grabs and doesn’t let go” (New York Times bestselling author Jason M. Hough).


The Ten Thousand By Paul Kearney [Fantasy]

The Macht are a race of relentless warriors controlled by the Great King of Asuria. But the king’s brother wants the throne, and he’ll turn the Macht on each other to get it. Can these champions overcome their own conflicts to become legends?



Bastion Saturn By C. Chase Harwood [Science Fiction]

In 2101, petty thief Caleb joins the wild frontier of Saturn’s moons — and quickly becomes a fugitive after helping several innocent civilians. Can Caleb and his new compatriots survive as tensions heat up between Earthlings and Off-Worlders?



Dragon Trials By Ava Richardson

To defend their kingdom, dragon riders Seb and Thea have to learn to work together… When dark forces threaten everything they love, their partnership faces the ultimate test in this epic fantasy adventure!



Pretty neat cover!

Content for Readers

NEED to know!

I remember reading one of his books when I was young. It was part of our little classroom book collection in school. Fond memories, and fun adventures with those rabbits.

Something for those X-File fans : )

Embarrassing, but I’m sure they’ll pull through.

Other Fun Stuff

…And who thought practicing with sharp blades was a good idea? O.o

XD I busted a gut.

Book and Author News

After changing the beginning three times I think I finally have how I want the next book to start.

[ You’ve only written the beginning!? ]

Ha, no. Don’t worry, I’ve written several chapters already. The beginning is the most important part! I didn’t want a beginning that only satisfied people who’ve read the The Knight’s Order. I wanted new readers to come in and be excited too (and not confused).

So I continue the long trek uphill. I was thinking, once I have it hammered out better, I may offer it as a sneak peek if people sign up for my newsletter. Good incentive right? We will see.

Relaxation and Fun

Witcher 2 was fun, and now I’m trying out Fallout 3. I played New Vegas some time ago so now I know more about how the game works. I never played 1 or 2, but 3 is interesting so far.

Have a great week!
