Swords will clash and spells will fly in the newest adventure of young warrior Luke Callindor, Nyx the magic-flinging caster, and their friends.

With Sari captured by their enemies, the champions of Windemere are determined to get her back and destroy the Lich’s castle. Little do they realize, their battles in the Caster Swamp are only the beginning of this adventure. Trinity and her Chaos Elves have invaded the city of Gaia in search of a relic called the Compass Key. Rumored to be the key to rescuing Sari from a magical island, our heroes are in a race to find the mysterious relic.

Which side will claim the Compass Key? And, what will our heroes do when they’re faced with an enemy whose evil power overshadows anything they have ever faced?

So, locked within the house under orders to shut up and get to work, Charles brings you Legends of Windemere. He looks forward to sharing all of his stories with you and his wife is happy he finally has someone else to play with.

Love: Lost and Found by Pamela Beckford (Blog Tour!)

Today, I’m participating in part of a blog tour for a blogging buddy of mine, Pamela Beckford. Love: Lost and Found is the third book of poetry that she’s published. If you enjoy poetry, you should definitely check it out!

Also, she’s a super nice person, and you should go check out her blog if you haven’t already. 🙂

Alone (double cinquain)

Alone

So incomplete

Gazing at the moonlight

Wondering just when you’ll be here

Nearby

With me

To start our lives

Never to leave again

Becoming whole and not just half

As one

 

Pamela has written a second collection of love poems. Poetry is an expression from deep within the soul. It can be therapeutic and healing. It can bring out all the best or the worst in life. Her poetry comes from the heart, not the head. It is an outpouring of emotion and she exposes it to the reader in the pages. Love: Lost and Found contains over 90 poems representing over a dozen different forms of poetry. The poems span the angst and despair of love lost to the exhilaration and ecstasy of a deep abiding love.

 

Love: Lost and Found has already received a five star review that says

“Pamela Beckford writes with her heart as much as her mind. She makes me feel things when I read her work that usually stay buried beneath the surface. Her way of expressing emotions that usually aren’t captured for later evaluation is amazing.

I also enjoy that she uses a lot of different styles and forms of poetry in her collections, making the book varied and interesting. Some are shorter and some longer, but all of them carefully constructed. Her ability to say so much in so few words is a indication of her talent as a writer.

If you are looking for an excellent poetry book, look no further.”

Pamela’s other books have also garnered some great reviews and both are available on Kindle or paperback as well.

 

Season of Love (tanka)

First there is summer,

Followed by fall, winter, spring

But lest we forget

The season of love appears

Bringing hope for all lost souls

Ranger Martin and the Zombie Apocalypse – Jack Flacco

I’m a little lagging with this, I know. But at least I’m hitting the one month anniversary of when Ranger Martin and the Zombie Apocalypse went live (depending on time zones – it’s one month exactly here).

I’m going into this assuming you don’t know Jack (haha, sorry, bad joke), so let me fill you in on the chance you might have come here from my Facebook page (which I will post this entry to when I’m done), or just haven’t happened across him on here.

Jack Flacco is what I would call a blogging-buddy, and – in case you’re not aware – he’s pretty effing (excuse my non-bad bad language) awesome.  Really, you can take one look at his blog and know as much. And I’m sorry, but any man that does a post every week (Wednesdays) on a new badass female from movies and the like wins major brownie points with me. I’d be impressed with one post like that, but . . . every week, people. I’ve got to appreciate that.

I haven’t done as many of these posts as I would like, but . . . I’m trying. This right here is essentially me shouting at you to go check something out if you’re not aware of it.

So, I will link you up to his blog (which you should follow if you’re not), Facebook page (which you should like if you haven’t), and the Amazon page where you can find either the print or e-book versions of Ranger Martin (if you haven’t already got it). (If you’re out of the US, his blog has links to the appropriate Amazon sites, but then again….searching also works.)

GO CHECK IT OUT! Because I SAY SO. 🙂

Ranger Martin and the Zombie Apocalypse

My print version is on the way to me now, and I am SO stoked to finally get to read it. 🙂

And a note to Jack: I just have to say (AGAIN, I know, I know) how happy I am for you. Stay awesome. 🙂

(And just a little random thing: Does anyone else always want to spell apocalypse with two o’s instead of an o and an a? No? Just me? Alright then.)

Prodigy of Rainbow Tower – Charles Yallowitz

I’m not sure if anyone else wants to admit it, but we all know there’s some sort of . . . pecking order, I’d call it, when it comes to bloggers. That’s probably the wrong way to put it, and I know at least SOMEONE out there is going to misunderstand what I meant. I’m not saying that there is some legitimate list (The Who’s Who of Blogging). There’s not. I’m saying that we all have this idea in our heads – ESPECIALLY when we first start out blogging (and I still consider myself a noob at it). It’s our own little mental list of people who, despite interacting with so many OTHER people, would not DARE interact with us. I know I had (still have) my own list of people I’d think would have zero interest in acknowledging my existence in the world.

Charles Yallowitz was one of those people for me.

I saw him interacting on blogs that I follow and, for whatever reason, thought he’d have no time or desire to include me in those interactions.

One day, I said, “To hell with it,” and started following him. And seriously, I am so freaking glad that I did. He is one of the most awesome people I’ve talked to on here, and I’ve talked to a LOT of awesome people on the good ole’ WordPress.

Anyway, in all my being nonexistent (basically) on here, I noticed on Twitter that he released the second book in his series – Legends of Windemere.

Woo! to Charles from me for releasing a new book!

It got me thinking that I wanted to make a new thing on here for all my numerous author friends. So every time I catch someone with some super awesome news, I’m going to post about it so everyone out there can soak up the awesomeness that comes with this sort of thing. I might be a little late (and I very well might actually miss things while I’m working – feel free to inform me if I do), but hey, better late than never. Don’t some people say that? I think they do . . .

Anyway, if you don’t know Charles, go follow him NOW so you can! I hyper-linked his name up there at the top to his blog, did you notice?  😉

And go check out his new book – Prodigy of Rainbow Tower!

Love that cover, by the way.

If you haven’t read the first in the series, and you’re interested in the FABULOUS Fantasy genre, go do that too! Beginning of a Hero

And, if you’re absolutely anything like me and simply CANNOT STAND e-books, here (HERE) is a link to Beginning of a Hero in paperback.

Congrats and good-luck-wishes sent your way from me through the computer, Charles.

Thanks for being so awesome. 🙂

I sure do hope I didn’t mess anything up and that all of the links are accurate. If they’re not, someone please let me know!
