Review of The Secret King: Lethao

I’ll get to my review here in just a few, but there is something else I want to address first. I want to apologize for being off my game over the last week and missing some posts. To prevent this from happening in the future I am changing my posting schedule. Starting this week, Saturday shall be our regularly scheduled posting day, with special event day postings strung between when they come up.

Thank you for your understanding, now on to The Secret King: Lethao, by Dawn Chapman, narrated by Greg Tremblay. If you’ve been hanging around for a while you’ve probably seen my reviews of Dawn Chapman’s short audio books, well this is the full book and I must say that more hooked than ever! It got to the point that I was listening to the audio book instead of music while drawing for class.

The thing that sticks with me the most from this story is the love and compassion. If I had to choose a single scene, it would be those which revolve around the release of one life for another. Overall, I think Greg Tremblay played Kendro the best of all of the characters, though there was not one character that I he was not on point for.

Needless to say, I just might listen to this one again!

Character Interview with Kayla from Secrets of the Mind

Kayla is the main character from one of my favorite books, Secrets of the Mind, and as such I’m excited to have her here, even if she is being a bit on the quiet side for her. 

Mind sharing with everyone how old you are?

I am seventeen and will be eighteen in a few months time.

Would you mind sharing a bit about your family?

I lived with my foster parents since I was eight. I was found not far from a car wreak. My mom died in the crash and my foster parents were the ones who found me.

A few months ago my Grandmother came to claim me. I didn’t know I had any relatives has I have no memory of my past. My grandmother is a cold lady with a steel heart.

Authors and Amazon’s Author Central

Picture

I’ve noticed that several of my author friends haven’t taken advantage of the Author Centrals on Amazon, so I’ve decided to make a post to get you started on the right foot.

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that it is a bit of a pain in the butt to set up the Author Central profiles for each Amazon store and that it sucks that they don’t have them for all the different countries. But at least I can make part of the process easier for you.

Below, I’m going to list the Author Central links I have found and what options are available for the that particular countries Author Central.

News from Zora Marie

Hey, everyone! Today we’re deviating from our usual schedule to bring you news from the other part of my life, you know, that college. And no, it’s not as boring as it sounds.

You see, I’ve just started my journey to become a graphic designer. Before I can delve into the actual graphic design, I have to sharpen my skills in the basics. So, here I bring you a few of the pieces I’ve made in Drawing I and Design I so far this semester.

My lovely professor posing as a drunken cowboy. He brought his son’s cowboy hat in one day and we liked it so much that we made him use it in most of our gesture drawings for the next few classes.

Meet Character Gina Egivand!

Gina Egivand here is from Between Silence and Fire by Kristan Cannon. So, how old are you Gina Egivand?

I’ve lost track. Before, when it mattered, I was 38 years old. I think 3, maybe even 5, years have passed since civilization cracked like an egg and left us all holding the bag.

Do you have a family? What are they like?

If we’re talking about blood, I did. But they’re a whole world away right now. May as well be a whole other planet. I’m from Australia, and since there’s no way of getting back there from where I am now. My little corner of the world is what used to be Northern Ontario in Canada. I don’t know if they’re alive or dead – but given that they weren’t exactly city folk like the European descended white folk, I believe that they are. I think they even miss me as much as I miss them. I’m what you call Aboriginal, but I wanted to see the world… as in all of this globe and not just the little footprint I was born on. Some of my family thought I was crazy, but didn’t fight me about it too much. Funny that I’d find my way here… and no way to go home. But we’re all connected.

Interview with Kristan Cannon

Today I have Kristan Cannon, author of Between Silence and Fire with us today! Tell me, what do you do?

A little bit of everything. I’m an artist and a writer, so I paint, sculpt, mix the two together, write and lots of other things.

 Tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start writing?

I’m from Northern Ontario – I say that because I never really settled. I was born in Kirkland Lake, then went to school in North Bay, as well as Toronto. I moved to Blind River and was there for a decade, then all over Sudbury before I moved to Toronto (living in Downsview and then Mimico for awhile), and then moved back to Sudbury again because most of my family currently lives there or very close to it.

Interview with Author Shaun L. Griffiths

Hey, Shaun L. Griffiths.As of the writing of this post, I’m about to crack open some of your books so I’m super excited to have you here! Please, tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start writing. 

I toy’d with the idea of writing all my life. I always enjoyed it, writing long letters to Pen Pals, school essays. I spent a number of years traveling and would write reams of pages to anyone who showed an interest as to where I was in the world.

I didn’t think about actually writing a book until about 2 years ago and then, after all the uncertainties of whether I could finish one, I did write it surprising quickly. It probably took me 6 weeks for the first draft, and another about 6 weeks to edit it.

Author Interview with Gary Ballard

We have self-published author of The Bridge Chronicles series & The Stepping Stone Cycle series, Gary Ballard, with us here today. Okay, so i want to hear a blurb from your book. 

Reclamation is the fifth novel in the cyberpunk series The Bridge Chronicles. The peace of the virtual world Bottle City is broken by an incursion, a cry for help from the mythical hacker enclave 4nasia. These hackers are legend, dating back to the first appearance of cybernetic implants on American covert operatives in the Venezuelan War of 2017. Now their cry for help reaches Artemis Bridge, the fixer who “knows a guy” in the gritty Gangland of 2030 Los Angeles.

Bridge has his own problems from Michael Freeman, the rogue hacker with a grudge , to the secret dealings of the wizards on the Technomancer’s Council of Five. Can Bridge pull off the high seas rescue of the 4nasia hackers while keeping the gangs of the Five Families from destroying their safe haven in the Gangland? Enlisting the aid of Triad gangster Fong, will Bridge be able to save the hackers and the Families before Freeman destroys it all?

Review of Audiobook Brie’s Results (The Secret King)

Yet another great audiobook, I actually finished it yesterday morning, but a looming art history exam kept me from being able to sit down at the computer and devote a few minutes to typing out my review. Either way, here it is.

This audiobook is actually intertwined with the last one I listened to, it shows the plight of this fascinating alien race that is introduced in the first one.

With this one, you’ll learn about this alien race and its plight primarily trough the eyes of a young doctor on her first assignment. It also pops into a few other points of view for a limited time to complete the picture of what happens. Overall, I must say well done! It kept my attention and I didn’t get lost while listening to it. Not only that, but I found it hard to put away.

So, check it out on Amazon!
