Give my books a read and a review!

What the butt-rage is happening, all you fifth-date horndogs who’ve smashed a couple times, and now decided to stimulate their anoos with a single, hopeful digit, but right after you insert it your partner stiffens, their pupils shrink, veins burst out across their eyes, and they go full-on fast-zombie—RAAAHR!  RAAAAAAHR!!!—and dive headfirst into your neck, savaging your jugular with animal madness, holy shit your blood is spurting like a motherfucking GEYSER it’s gotta be arterial dear Batman in Gotham please fucking SAVE ME—

That’s why you tickle the rosebud, before you go spelunking around with your goddamn finger!  Nobody wants an unexpected phalange wiggling around in their holiest of holes—now you’ve gone and started the fast-zombie apocalypse!  FUCK!!!

Anyways, now that I’ve got your attention, let me direct it towards my various-genred books!  First up is my YA fantasy:  A Door into Evermoor.  If you’re hankering for some psychedelic high school fun with a giant side of interdimensional monsters and teen genius hijinks, check out Kor’Thank:  Barbarian Valley Girl!  If you want a big ol’ helping of robot vs. wizard pew pew, along with an extra serving of existential philosophy, check out my science fiction series Echo!  And don’t forget to leave a positive review for them!  Positive reviews—even though they only take a minute or two of your time—are like $1000 tips for us indie authors.  Every one of them is SUPER appreciated!

  1. Definitely got my attention with such a tame descriptions. Lol! I agree, those Amazon reviews are harder than those appendages mentioned in your opening paragraph to get. Here’s to getting as many reviews as your awesome books deserve! Thanks for the early birthday present in creating Echo. I look forward to buying the rest of the series as another present to help me celebrate today. Take care!

    • I hope it keeps on entertaining! Book 2 is a giant battle where the physical reality of Atriya’s plateau is really hammered in, book 3 is a cross between Atriya and Verus’s journeys, and also expands on the magic/philosophy while exploring more of Echo, and book 4 is a pretty deep dive into the magic/philosophy stuff while wrapping things up.

      If you have any interest in ridiculous comedy/scifi/horror/teen-stuff with psychedelics, I’m planning a giveaway for Kor’Thank starting Monday March 28 thru Friday April 1. No pressure though—I’m happy you picked up one of my books, that’s enough for me! 😊

    • Awesome!! I hope you guys are enjoying it! It’s YA, so it doesn’t have the rock em sock em profanity and blood n guts of my other stuff, but I tried to focus more on the joy and excitement of it. Thanks!!!

      • Absolutely! I never, ever thought I would write anything with romance, but I’m happy with Evermoor. I really wanted to capture the feel from early Ultimate Spider Man.

      • Yeah, I’m not a huge fan of romance either, but it does help keep a book balanced. My current WIP has a bit of gay romance, but it fits the story really well so Im enjoying writing it.

      • Nice! I grew up with Korean immigrant parents, and when I was a kid I never really questioned the lack of representation in media, but I really appreciate it when I see it now. Sometimes it’s overdone, which I try to avoid because my first priority is telling an entertaining story, but if it feels natural then I’m putting it in!

      • Awesome! The arty part of me made Jon half Korean to symbolize his existence between two different worlds, but he’s really more of an everyman in a diversifying society (like today), so I wanted to capture that everyman vibe while giving a nod to the climate. The presence of fantasy-world minorities, imo, wasn’t a big plot point given the themes, but I wanted it to have an explanation (which Gyrax gives) and be an everyday, no-big-deal thing, which is why I mention Ren is Middle Eastern once, Terrelly is Hispanic, and I really don’t know what Elier is, or Nyanti (have yet to meet a race with purple skin).

        I’m going to introduce some gay characters, but it’s going to be in the same vein—they’re badasses who just happen to be gay. As a kid, I always liked subtle representation, where the character is important first as a good human being, who just happens to be whatever and is informed by their diversity, rather than caricatured or lionized by it. That made me feel pride and acceptance, rather than the other extreme, which sometimes made me feel cringey and uncomfortable (unless, of course, it was a well-crafted story about being a minority).

        That’s just me, though. I understand others feel different, and more in-your-face diversity can be cathartic for some.

      • Yeah, that totally works on multiple levels, and I think you have a really healthy mindset when considering diversity. I did catch the mention for Ren and Nyanti’s purple skin was super cool.

        Great idea on the gay characters. They’re the same as the other badasses around, only they just happen to be gay. I think of myself the same way haha.

        Yeah, I think it’s really up to the author, but I don’t try to overly showcase diversity for the sake of diversity. I just want stories to feel authentic in regards to it. It doesn’t have to be in your face to work. You totally get it.

      • Thanks! That’s good to know. With the heated climate nowadays, I feel like some folks expect me to be a polarized firebrand, otherwise I’m “not on their side.” I like things low-key! 😅

      • Right, the atmosphere can be so oppressive. I wouldn’t stress too much on diversity, but it is nice to see it to some extent, even if it’s just a little bit. You handled it very well. Btw, posting my review of Evermoor tomorrow!

      • Yay! Glad you like it. I actually wrote that one as a submission for a contest on Scribophile in years ago.

        I can’t even with basements. It’s always too creepy! Attics aren’t quite as bad but still freaky sometimes. Guess I’m still a scaredy cat lol.

      • No worries—I was terrified of a Castle Grayskull playset on top of my dresser at night, but it looked too cool during the day so I could never throw it out. 🤣
