I have a surprise for everyone today!
Last year I had the honor of hosting the cover reveal for Angela Boord’s renaissance inspired fantasy epic Fortune’s Fool, which went on to place second in the 2019 Self Published Fantasy Blog Off (#SPFBO). This year Fantasy Book Critic hosted the cover reveal for Boord’s prequel novella in the Eterean Empire series, Smuggler’s Fortune. Both books feature stunning cover art by John Anthony di Giovanni and a cover design by Shawn T. King.
Today I have even more exciting news…
both books are now available in… Continue reading
Recently the Self-Published Fantasy Month Team posted a list of some self-published fantasy recs for those who have not read much self-published fantasy and don’t know where to start with finding a good book to read. Our hope was to offer up a few suggestions each while admitting the list would leave out a bunch of great books and authors. I hate leaving out great stories so I decided to re-post the reviews of all the self-published fantasy books I’ve really enjoyed over the last few years. Over the coming days and weeks I’ll be re-posting them here in the lead up to Self-Published Fantasy Month. My hope is you might find one that catches your interest for September!
Tonight’s installment is reposted from March 23, 2020 when I actually changed a rating for the first and only time from a 4.5 to a 5.0 Stars.
Tonight I’m doing something I haven’t done on the blog before. I’m doing it because it’s the right thing to do. I’m admitting I was wrong, and I’m changing a rating I gave a book. Continue reading
Angela Boord’s Renaissance inspired debut is simply fantastic. A character driven tale of mystery, political intrigue, warring noble houses, and a woman at the center of it all who will stop at nothing until the wrong done to her is avenged. Oh…and did I mention the slow burn romance? Yeah, it has that too.
Big gobs of Revenge and political intrigue are what’s on the menu in T.A. Frost’s Up To The Throne. Frost sets his story in a dark late Renaissance/Reformation era setting with steampunk elements. While many of his tropes are rehashes of the usual fare, there are some noteworthy elements and the main character is compelling and engaging.
Today I have the honor of hosting the cover reveal for Fortune’s Fool, the debut novel by independently published author Angela Boord. Fortune’s Fool is a Renaissance inspired, epic, historical, black powder, and romance fantasy. It’s the first book of the Eterean Empire series and releases June 25, 2019 on Kindle and later in paperback.
About The Book
A secret affair. A disfiguring punishment. A burning need for revenge.
Kyrra d’Aliente has a bad reputation and an arm made of metal.
Cast out of the safe and luxurious world of silk to which she was born, played as a pawn in a game of feuding Houses, Kyrra navigates a dangerous world of mercenaries, spies, and smugglers while disguising herself as a man.
War destroyed her family and the man she loved. Vengeance is within her grasp.
But is she willing to pay its price?
