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 Daily Chatter: If you’re looking for a great place to meet authors and talk about LitRPG check out LitRPGForum.com

Fellow serial readers:

If you’re looking for a great place to interact with sci-fi, fantasy and yes, LitRPG authors, then check out LitRPGForum.com

It’s interactive in many ways.  You can discover hidden rooms, build your treasure and buy things that will unlock other areas.  Or, if you just want a message board – it can be that also.  Either way, it’s fun.  Check it out, but be warned, it’s addictive as Hell.

Some of the best #GameLit and #LitRPG writers in the business are over there.

Jamie Davis’ Podcast “Understanding the LitRPG Genre and What Readers Want”

Jamie Davis is the author of more than a dozen novels including Accidental Thief.

Check out my 20 Questions with Jamie Davis. 

He’s also a registered nurse, a nationally recognized medical educator, and host of The Nursing Show.

How Jamie Became a Fiction Writer

Jamie got started as a novelist on a dare. He’s been a nurse and a medical educator for quite some time and has several nonfiction books available. In 2014, a friend of his dared him to write a novel for NaNoWriMo. He finished his novel during November and then it sat on the file for eight months.

Writing that first fiction novel stoked a creative fire in Jamie. He’s always considered himself a very creative person, and writing fiction gave him a different creative outlet than his nonfiction books or his podcast business.

He decided to release what would become the first book in his Extreme Medical Services series. It was very well received by listeners in Jamie’s podcast community, as well as fans of the urban fantasy genre.

The Extreme Medical Services series started as an idea for an educational web series that Jamie turned into a novel. Jamie is involved with seven podcasts and he writes for several blogs. He’s always writing. And ever since NaNoWriMo 2014, Jamie has always had a fiction project in process.

It never occurred to Jamie to go the traditional publishing route. He’s always been an entrepreneur. He was aware of self-publishing and the opportunities available to him to market to the audience of his choosing, rather than relying on an editor or publisher to decide where his book fit in the marketplace.

Check out the podcast here.

  • People have asked why we only publish #GameLit bi-monthly having noticed we publish the bestselling #LitRPG weekly.  As it stands now, there are just not enough publishers using the keyword or hashtag.  A weekly list would vary widely and skew the results of the organic sales data.  As it stands now, this list is not an aggregate.   We compile data over a two week period.  Otherwise, the results would be all over the place because the sale of just a few books can bump an author from #75 to #30 overnight.  We believe that in order to produce a truer tabulation, bi-monthly is the right choice for now.
