Kill the Beast: It Only Took Four Years

Kill the Beast: It Only Took Four Years

Guest Blogger: Michele Israel Harper My book took me four years to write. Four. Years. To help you understand how devastating that was to me, my Zombie Takeover book took me one month to write, and my Wisdom & Folly duology took me 24 weeks to write. (I was writing a chapter a week for […]

Audiobook Review The Shadow Queen

Audiobook Review The Shadow Queen

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of libraries, especially online ones. When we owned a home in Phoenix, I held a city of Phoenix library card. Taxpayer perk. When we sold our house, I gladly forked over the $40 per year to keep my beloved maroon card that’s older than either one of my […]

Angel Eyes Audiobook Review

Angel Eyes Audiobook Review

I heard of Shannon Dittemore’s books a while ago but only recently discovered her young adult series, Angel Eyes.  I plowed through the first book, also titled Angel Eyes and went straight into the audiobook version of Broken Wings.

Even splurging on the paperback won’t set you back much more than a fast food combo ($7.99) and has no trans fats. Did I mention the […]

Why I write Christian Speculative Fiction

Why I write Christian Speculative Fiction

Guest Blogger: Sarah Addison-Fox Before I explain why I love writing speculative fiction, I feel like I need a disclaimer. I am by no means an expert on the topic. I stumbled into reading spec fiction when I was binge reading Christian books a couple years ago. I started with Donita K. Paul, moved to […]

The Final Paladin: The Key to Apollyon

The Final Paladin is a fun fantasy novel that focuses on the legends of Charlemagne and the origins of chivalry. It’s a portal fantasy partly set in the gritty Five Points area of New York City during the Industrial Revolution. And partly in the Fae Realms. Vermillion, who’s known as Peg protects her simple-minded brother, […]
