Angel Ramon’s Blog Article.

Check out Richard Hummel New Website: DungeonQuestOnline.com

Here’s a cool author with a cool website.  DungeonQuestOnline.com

He’s writing a #GameLit #Saga and from the look of things I want to read it.

Richard’s blog is filled with information.  A character sheet as well as links to #LitRPG and #GameLit resources.

From reading the stats page of the character, Richard seems to know what he’s doing.

I get excited when writers go to this much trouble to introduce their worlds and characters – and the books is TBD, which makes me even more impressed.

My Daily Chatter – Dawn Chapman Sci-Fi Creator and Writer

Hello Serial Readers:

The  TL;DR – Buy Dawn Chapman’s books.  She’s a great writer and her books are well worth the price and the time to read.  5 out of 5 stars.

Today I want to introduce you to an outstanding science fiction and fantasy writer: Dawn Chapman.  Dawn claims to have been developing science fiction stories for over 30 years, but I swear she doesn’t look a day over 25.   Considering I look four days older than dirt, I’m jealous.

Back in 2005, Dawn turned her talents to television and wrote the scrips for a 13-week science fiction series named The Secret King.  Thankfully, for me, she went back into publishing full time in  2010.

Dawn’s latest creation is Desert Runner, an NPC story.  To celebrate her birthday (which was yesterday) she has it free on Amazon for a few days.  Most of us have Kindle Unlimited because we read a lot of books.  All of Dawn Chapman’s books are available in KU.  So, even though this book is free right now, it would be great if we support her by buying it through KU.

Check out Dawn’s blog for the latest info on her projects.   I recommend buying Desert Storm, Desert Born, and Desert Storm (book 3 in the series).  I give all of them 5 stars.

My Daily Chatter – Author Zachariah Dracoulis #GameLit

Hello Serial Readers:

Genre(s): Science Fiction, Fantasy, Entertainment>Role Playing, Cyberpunk and TV/Movie/Video Game Adaptation.

Zachariah Dracoulis makes reading fun.

Zachariah Dracoulis

Anyone who follows #LitRPG and #GameLit on social media knows Zachariah Dracoulis.  He’s well established as a best selling writer with his FRAGGED series and LEGENDS OF TARTHIRIOUS.

But, what you may not know is that Zach spends a lot of time giving back to the indie writing community by promoting other writers with his Facebook group LitRPG Rebels.

As serial readers, we need to support good independent publishers with our downloads and ebook buys.  In part, that is why this website was built.   And, by now you should know that I don’t recommend an author unless the books are good and I’ve actually read a good part of the writer’s catalog.

Zach is no exception; I’ve read most of his books.  I bought Legends of Tarthirious back in February and I read the whole series.  I read Fragged back in July and was also impressed.

Discoverers of these exceptional books have an advantage I didn’t have: they can buy the box set all at once without having to wait on pins and needles for the next installment.

So, give Dracoulis a read.  You’ll be pleased with is writing and it will be time well spent.  He makes reading fun.  And, after all, isn’t that what it’s all about?

Recommendations:

Read FRAGGED The 5 part short story series boxed set.  I give it 4.8 out of 5 stars.

Read LEGENDS OF TARTHIRIOUS the complete series boxed set. 

I give the series 4.7 out of 5 stars.

As most of us are in Kindle Unlimited, you can get the books individually.  So, download them all at once and clear your weekend calendar, order take-out and enjoy.

My fascination with author Daniel Schinhofen

Daniel Schinhofen – international man of mystery.

I had you at free, right?  Aside from the free book, I’ve followed Daniel Schinhofen for some time.  Not just because he writes #LitRPG and #GameLit, but because I enjoy good writing with a twist.

I’m not about putting down other authors, each one has a unique style.   But, I get tired of predictable stereotypic tropes: you know what I’m talking about:  as a reader, you can sense with some writers what is going to happen two or three chapters ahead based on the HUD, the loot, the magic (or lack of ability thereof).

Schinhofen knows when to take a turn in character development.  He has a sense of imagination – often lacking in other works I’ve read by arguably more successful writers.

Reviews of Alpha World: Book 1

If you enjoy reading – if you’re a serial reader as I am – you should be following the journies  Daniel Schinhofen takes and the books he writes.

So, if you can, pick up a free copy of Alpha World.  It’s a great read and, like me, you’ll be looking forward to his other projects: especially if you like a little demon once in a while. And, a little sexy time.

You’ll get hooked.

Check out outstanding author Matt Doyle

#SciFi, #Crime and #GameLit author Matt Doyle lives in South  East, England.  Rumor has it he has an extensive tea collection.   From his Amazon author page:

Matt Doyle lives in the South East of England and shares his home with a wide variety of people and animals, as well as a fine selection of teas. He has spent his life chasing dreams, a habit which has seen him gain success in a great number of fields. To date, this has included spending ten years as a professional wrestler, completing a range of cosplay projects, and publishing multiple works of fiction.

These days, Matt can be found working on far too many novels at once, blogging about anime, comics, and games, and plotting and planning what other things he’ll be doing to take up what little free time he has.

A  Sci-Fi murder mystery that has been described by reviewers as Sam Spade meets Blade Runner.

Check out Addict available on Amazon.

New Hopeland was built to be the centre of the technological age, but like everywhere else, it has its dark side. Assassins, drug dealers and crooked businessmen form a vital part of the city’s make-up, and sometimes, the police are in too deep themselves to be effective. But hey, there are always other options …

For P.I. Cassie Tam, business has been slow. So, when she’s hired to investigate the death of a local VR addict named Eddie Redwood, she thinks it’ll be easy money. All she has to do is prove to the deceased’s sister Lori that the local P.D. were right to call it an accidental overdose. The more she digs though, the more things don’t seem to sit right, and soon, Cassie finds herself knee deep in a murder investigation. But that’s just the start of her problems.

When the case forces Cassie to make contact with her drug dealing ex-girlfriend, Charlie Goldman, she’s left with a whole lot of long buried personal issues to deal with. Then there’s her client. Lori Redwood is a Tech Shifter, someone who uses a metal exoskeleton to roleplay as an animal. Cassie isn’t one to judge, but the Tech Shifting community has always left her a bit nervous. That wouldn’t be a problem if Lori wasn’t fast becoming the first person that she’s been genuinely attracted to since splitting with Charlie. Oh, and then there’s the small matter of the police wanting her to back off the case.

Matt’s other books include::

A sci-fi/GameLit series, ‘The Spark Form Chronicles’. The universal links for these are as follows (in order):
WICK: books2read.com/u/4ED7wz
CARNIVAL: books2read.com/u/bpW1e9
GIFTS: books2read.com/u/bwW9Z0
This series follows five professional card players as they take part in a future-based tournament where the battles are enacted for live audiences by holograms.

An ‘over the top’ performer guarding his companion’s right to life.
A genius programmer striving to retrieve her property.
An ex-mercenary sick of the abuse that she and her girlfriend receive.
A teenage girl desperately seeking to understand her past.
An old man intent on living on his own terms.

Five professional card players. Five reasons to fight. One thing in common: Their lives will be touched by the existence of the AI known as Carnival.

The Spark Form Chronicles combines card gaming with the excitement of professional wrestling, and tells a complex story that asks a simple question: Can an AI every truly be alive? Dive into Matt Doyle’s epic science fiction series to find out the answer.
