For the young adult reader in your household, please consider the stories of Brian S. Pratt. Aside from helping me out tremendously with experiential advice when I decided to go digital with my work, the prolific Mr. Pratt has scribed several series of books -- The Morcyth Saga and The Broken Key are two of them-- and is currently involved in writing Travail of the Dark Mage -- the sequel series to The Morcyth Saga. A highly approachable and reader-oriented novelist (I cannot stress this enough!), Mr. Pratt offers both new readers and returning ones a whole wagon-load of exciting narratives, introductory material, sample chapters, free e-books, and even some no-frills versions of his work -- truly something for every taste and every budget, all available in more formats than practically any other books on the planet! Traditional bindings? E-books? Brian S. Pratt has got them! And he has more adventures on the way! Please visit him on his Facebook page (click here) and start your adventure today!

Shepard's Quest  begins with  three lads from  Quillim who stumble across an ancient burial tomb known as the King's Horde.  But in order to gain the Horde for  themselves, they learn that they must first  recover and reassemble the four segments of the fabled key that unlocks it.

The one  that started it all!  Written in 2nd-person -- much like the fantasy role-playing games that inspired it  -- The Unsuspecting  Mage  kicks off the  7-part  Morcyth Saga, where high school senior, James, finds himself spirited to a  strange world and  must use his  earthly  knowledge to survive.

Chip Boles continues to astonish with his talents!
NEW from my Cover Artist!
Chip Boles, the artist extraordinaire who designed the cover of my 3rd edition of Of Staves and Sigmas, has recently been featured in the New York Times for his stunning, quirky, and unique artistic revisualisations of a number of Japanese mythological creatures in Michael Goldstein's new book, Yokai Character Collection.
Do yourself a favour and check out Chip's personal take on the wide variety of critters, spirits, and pesky imps that are part of the rich tapestry of Japanese folklore. He spent an enormous amount of time researching old delineations and developing his own vision of how to represent both the eeriness and eclecticism of these cultural devilkins.
Then, return here to see what he comes up with for the official cover to
