Lewd Paladin: Dread of Night: A Virtual Fantasy LitRPG Adventure (Book 2) eBook by Eden Redd

Lewd Paladin: Dread of Night by Eden Redd
Lewd Paladin: Dread of Night by Eden Redd

Eden Redd, author of the Lewd Paladin Series has a new book out.   I fell in love with her writing months ago with Lewd Necromancer.  From there I went immediately to Lewd Knight, Lewd Rogue & Lewd Dragon.  It took me over a week and a half to finish those books.  I stayed up late into the night, trying to get that last chapter in before my eyes completely gave way.   Why?  It’s hard to explain, really.  But, Eden blends just the right amount of fantasy and sex into her LitRPG books to make it captivating for me.  I just love the way she weaves a story.  Had it not been for her, I may not have stayed with LitRPG.  I would have gone on to something else and probably come back to it later.   My recommendation: buy the book or read it in Kindle Unlimited.   Her catalog is worth a free 30-day subscription to KU, right by itself.

Lewd Paladin: Dread of Night | 205 pages | $2.99 & Kindle Unlimited

The blurb from Dread of Night:

Warning: The tale you are about to read is a story of sexual creatures, human or otherwise. This tale is for adults 18 and up.

“The abyss beckons for the souls of the righteous and the damned.”

With the end of the classes, Luis finds his normal life quickly becoming empty. As he contemplates plans for the summer, the siren call of Lewd Saga burrows into his heart. The promises he made and oaths he swore in the game quickly come to the forefront of his life, calling for him to continue his holy crusade against the growing darkness.

Luis dives back into the game of Lewd Saga to become his alter ego, Thorrin Rivers, paladin and holy knight to the Sphere of Light. Little does he know that the Sphere of Darkness has unleashed it’s own warriors to deal with the meddlesome paladin. When a Troll Master defects, Thorrin swears to a friend that he will protect them and safely deliver them to the coast of Lukken. As Thorrin races against time, a shadow looms over his true and virtual reality. Family bonds will be tested as will the player’s heart.

Can Thorrin overcome his natural urges for justice when the enemy begs for help? Can the player unlock secrets to an ancient power to help strike down the undead Dread Lords rising from their tombs? Will fellow paladins rush to his aid when the dead come for him? Will Thorrin overcome a sickening truth that will attempt to destroy his real and virtual life?

Lewd Saga is a Virtual MMORPG, based in the fantasy world of Lukken, home of dragon royalty, human kingdoms and troll masters. Players quest, join in great battles and find love and lust in whatever form they desire. There is no taboo too great or too intimate.

20 Questions with Author Angel Ramon

We talk with Amazon Best Selling author Angel Ramon.  Ramon’s short story got up to #1 on Amazon’s list a few days ago.  Check out the links at the bottom for Ramon’s work.

Twenty questions with Angel Ramon.  Author of “Angel’s Nightmare Adventure” and “The Thousand Years War” (3 Book Series). 

If you could go back in time and tell your younger writing self-one thing, what would it be?

I would have told myself to finish The Thousand Years War series then instead of waiting until I was much older. Also I would had told myself that being in the in-crowd wasn’t all that and while I had fun, I also lost an opportunity to be published much earlier.

How did you spend the first bit of money you earned as a published author?

To be honest I spent the money on improving my covers and building my website for my author platform.

How many unfinished or unpublished books do you have?

Right now I have a work in progress, which will be a LitRPG novel. I have a bunch of ideas for future works, at least 10, lol.

What is your writing process? Or, how many hours a day do you write?

I like to listen to music while I’m writing. The music usually fits the tone of what I’m writing to get the creative juices flowing quicker. I tend to write for at least 6-8 hours a day when I’m not marketing or blogging.

What was your favorite childhood book(s)? Why?

During my childhood, I was a huge R.L. Stine fan and loved the Goosebumps series. The reason was, I was a horror fan and I loved the many twists and turns R.L. Stine wrote. This was part of my inspiration to become a writer and this was my source of horror entertainment before Resident Evil became famous.

On average, how long does it take you to write a book? (First draft, rewrites, edits to finally publishing)

Usually it takes me 4-6 months to get a book done, sometimes a little less time if I’m really into the story and if I’m not as busy trying to get new fans or sales. You know how that turns out, lol.

We all get bad reviews sometimes when we publish.  How do you deal with bad reviews?

That we do my friend. I look at them and see if there is any merit behind them. I found they have made me a better writer as I been able to spot more mistakes and improve my craft correctly rather than trying to be defensive and possibly cheating myself out of a learning experience.

How would you describe your average reader?  Or, do you even have a particular kind of person in mind when you write?

My kind of reader would be a geek like me who loves action and adrenaline pumped scenes. One that would be on the edge of their seat most of the time with only a few scenes to really let their guard down. Basically when you read my books, expect a twist at all times and not everything will have a definitive answer.

What are your hardest scenes to write?

The hardest scenes would be the emotional scenes as in my action-oriented books they are few and far between. So I try to make these scenes really stand out and have them explain the story or at least the character relationships better.

What is the best way you’ve found to market your books?

I notice the best ways have been through Facebook Groups such as the LitRPG Rebels and all the other LitRPG societies. Also for my horror books there are horror groups as well. YouTube podcast have also helped. However, what has helped me is that when I market or promote myself I put my personality and people can see that I’m really into what I write and that I believe in what I write.

What do you think are the challenges facing new writers? 

For me the biggest thing is obscurity and vanity publishers looking to try to make a quick buck from these unsuspecting new writers. Of course the biggest challenge for new writers is to gain readership for their books and making a name for themselves.

What are some things you’ve had to sacrifice in order to write and publish?

The biggest thing is time and lots of it. I’m not able to do as much with my family and pleasurable things as I’m trying to meet my self-made deadlines. I do suffer plently of sleepless nights especially while publishing and making my work ready for the public.

How often do you read for pleasure? How many books a year do you read? How fast do you read (words per minute)?

I try to read on the weekends as during the week I tend to be busy with my work(s) in progress. I’m a bit of a slow reader, unless the book is really good and catches my attention. I usually read 1-3 books a month on average.

Many indie authors live and die by KU (Kindle Unlimited) and the “normalized page read”.  What are your views on KU, Amazon and where do you think KU will head in the future?

This is a tough question because I do make a good amount on Kindle Unlimited. This month and last month have been great months for me on KU page reads. So I have to say that I do live on KU and it helps with my sales as many readers in my groups use KU to read books. What I will say is that the latest KU scam with clickfarms has ruined the KU system to a degree. I will say this; I will be using Kindle Unlimited for the long haul. However, I see more scammers begin to pop up and the global fund begins to decrease even further then I will possibly have to get out of Kindle Unlimited and maybe go wide. Amazon really needs to fix the “broken” KU system so that unethical authors will stop gaming the system or at least have a better idea who is doing so. For now the future of KU is uncertain in my view.

Many writers find editing drafts as frustrating.  How do you edit and what is your process?

I do 3-5 edits with the first one being plot holes, second being the second go around, then the third and following ones will be to spot typos, grammar issues, and sentence structure.

What software do you use to write?

For me I use good ole Microsoft Word to write my books.

Fans often have a preconceived notion of you.  What is one thing your fans would be surprised to learn if they really knew you or spent the whole day by your side?

They would be surprised to find out that there was a part of my life where I was all screwed up and where I was an actual alcoholic. I almost lost my girlfriend, friends, and my parent’s respect, heck even my job was in jeopardy. I almost screwed up my life until my girlfriend convinced me that I was acting like a total douchebag and she was tired of my bad attitude when I drank. Not to mention that my drinking wasn’t only on weekends, it would even take place during the week as well. She convinced me to start writing again as she liked poetry, from that point on I went back to writing.

What did it feel like to publish your first book?

It was the greatest feeling in the world. All my friends were happy for me, I finally achieved what I wanted back in junior high, and I found out that I could do it. From that point on I continued going.

What are some of the difficulties of writing characters of the opposite sex?

I actually don’t have much trouble writing about the opposite sex, as for me I believe that both genders are capable of doing anything.

If they turned your life into a movie, who would you want to play you? Why?

That would be a tough decision. However, I would say Tom Cruise because he is one of my favorite actors and he’s always played in some great movies such as Minority Report, Mission Impossible, and The War of the Worlds.
