Review Tales of Ever After 2 for 1

Today as part of the blog tour I’m reviewing not one but two stories from the Fellowship of Fantasy’s latest anthology.  The person who leaves the most comments across the blog tour will receive the chance to read special sneak peaks from several of the authors’ upcoming works!

Short Story Review: Drawn from the Water by Marian Jacobs

Short Story Review: Drawn from the Water by Marian Jacobs

I enjoy a good Bible story retelling and Marian A. Jacobs’s Drawn from the Water did not disappoint. It’s solidly written and was both familiar and fresh.

The Author Collector by Teddi Deppner

The Author Collector by Teddi Deppner

I love really thought-provoking short stories. Bonus points if there’s a creep factor. Think Ray Bradbury or “The Lottery. Teddi Deppner’s The Author Collector doesn’t disappoint.

The Title Goes to…

The Title Goes to…

We have an active Realm Makers alumni group on Facebook and one thread centered around titles. Titles are a big deal to me and one of my favorite parts of writing. I love doing the title thing and I’ve taken several approaches. I’m going to use this topic as a shameless plug for my latest short story. It’s part […]
