If you’re looking to taste military scifi, you should absolutely read Crystal and Flint, especially because its only 330 or so pages, as opposed to the regular length of most military scifi!
Duckett & Dyer: Dicks for Hire by G. M. Nair is the exact opposite of Dark Matter in all the right ways. Where Dark Matter goes dark, Duckett & Dyer goes absurd. Where Dark Matter goes hard science, Duckett & Dyer says “screw it, it works how we want it to work because we say so.”
Within the first few chapters, I immediately found myself reminiscing to evenings with my family as a kid watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. You've got your religious vampire hunters, sassy bad boy vampires, and crazy werewolves. Throw in a few weird behaviors of the vampires, actions sequences straight out of the Boondock Saints (yes, I know, not Vampires) or even Blade.
I’m excited to follow Francis’s future works; Elysia is a masterclass in worldbuilding. Francis has endless room to grow in building stories to fill the worlds inside his head.
A wonderful story of nostalgia for those who love tall tales!
If you’re looking for mad, comedic, quick read, How Not To Be A Rogue will exceed all expectations. Its rich, multi-dimensional characters push the story from page to page; it barely feels like you’re even reading.
I’d recommend this book for anyone interested in the late colonial period of the United States! Any Hamilton fans (the biography and the musical, too) out there? Then this book is for you!
If you’re looking for a young adult fantasy with romance, fantastical magic, and an ever-expanding mythos, then Korrigan is a must-read!
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.
Welcome to the Faction, a series of novels written by Tyler Hanson and published by Two Doctors Media Collaborative. For your first introduction, enter the Redacted Files.

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.
Join the Indie Author Collection Initiative! It’s going to take a lot of work, it’s going to require more people than just me to act as leads, and we’re going to need to figure out a lot of logistics for distribution of royalties, but if we succeed, collectively we can all find new readers, expand name recognition, and increase our sales.

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?
