Game theming has always been one of my favorite aspects of a game. Be it cheesy or serious, the theming immerses you into the story, setting, and feelings of the game.
Urban Gothic. Not my favorite title, and I don’t see the connection to the story, but that doesn’t exactly matter, because the story contained inside is fantastical and wonderful and poignant. It cuts to the soul, for its themes slice through the psychological and the broken and the wounded.
Financial Freedom is, to be frank, an incredibly accessible work. Lawson does a great job of breaking down concepts that would confuse or frustrate my younger self (i.e. building a sturdy budget, acknowledging the value of life insurance policies at early ages) as well as others who may not necessarily have a background in financial wellness.
Archangel and its sequels have tremendous potential to explore intriguing moral and metaphysical questions regarding the relationship between God and the intervention of the divine into the affairs of Earth.
Arbuckle has established a story with many open-ended strands it can follow; I’m excited to see where the narrative goes in Augmented, the sequel.
Mark Engels writes with incredible clarity and skill, bringing life to characters with skill hard to match. And more importantly, he keeps the story barreling forward from the very first page, throwing readers into the action immediately.
I’ll be honest in saying that I don’t have a lot of experience with many types of campaign games. I’ve played a few that I really like and some that I am happy to see slowly gathering dust on the shelf for a little while…
By Christie Valentine Powell, Mira’s Griffin follows a young girl (Mira) who discovers griffins living in the mountains near her village. She befriends one, but in the process, a whole cascade of events spiral out of control in to a plot with ever increasing stakes.
It may sound cliché, but Tom Collins has looked for love in all the wrong places. Having the fabric of the society ripped apart due the Apocalypse hasn’t helped his dating life one bit either. But when a stranger comes to his famous mother’s boutique talking of deals, weddings, and nations on the brink of war, how does Tom respond? Will he work to fight the evil Marauders or fall victim to a woman he believes is “The One”?

Everyone should go check out A Million and One Magazine, and while you’re there, read Simulating the Senses of Trolls by C. D. Tavenor!
Martin, no one denies the great service you’ve performed for your nation, and for your species. You managed to survive on Mars for three months all alone before the Goliath arrived to pick you up. It amazes me, and all of us, that you did what we thought was only possible in movies.

Ignore your own intent. Kill your pride, and let the words tell the story on their own. Only then will your story become what it was meant to be.
Writing is often a cathartic experience. Something of ourselves bleeds into every scene and speaks through every character. During this process, especially when it comes to main characters, we’re tempted to limit the unattractive aspects of a given personality.
A blog by Rebecca F. Kenney. Every book begins with an idea. Inspiration, some call it. Others claim to have a muse—inner voices that won't stop talking, or a secret world locked in their minds, clamoring to be released.
Hi there, I'm Victorique and I mostly write historical fiction. Research in historical fiction is synonymous with the genre. If you want to write in this genre, you’ll spend a lot of your time reading. Whether it is before you write a word in your WIP or after, you’ll spend a lot of time looking things up. And a rule of mine is, if you aren't sure, don't assume, investigate, and ask around if you know any experts.
This weekend, I had the opportunity to write a guest post for the wonderful EJ Allen, another author. Go check out his website, he has a lot of great articles on writing, but more importantly, if you’re interested in a deeper dive into the writing of Legion of Mono, here’s my post from his blog!
How many people remember the moment they first opened up their copy of Lord of the Rings, revealing the majestic world of Middle Earth for the first time?
Everything must connect back to your story’s design. If it doesn’t, kill it with fire.
Do not let your writing career destroy your life. You write because you enjoy it, and you believe you have stories to tell that will entertain people and make them think. If that passion wrecks your financial security, you will lose the fire to write.
