It’s my pleasure to welcome Matt Larkin, the author of the SPFBO finalist Darkness Forged, and the Escathon Cycle. He will talk about his Kickstarter campaign for The Ragnarök Prophecy Volume 1-3 which includes reimagined, deluxe, leatherbound & illustrated editions of his Ragnarok Era and Runeblade Saga novels.
SPFBO 7 started off on June 1st and as many of you know, the Asylum is not a judging blog anymore. But not all of us stepped back from the competition. In this post I’d like to talk about why I made the decision of stepping back, how SPFBO affected my (blogging) life, and highlight all the gems I got to find thanks to the competition. It will be a long post, so buckle up. I’ll try to keep the rambling to a minimum, but no promises…
In March we celebrated our 3rd anniversary as well as Storytellers On Tour’s first one. We’ve managed to read and review books, continued with the SPFBO Finals, finished the first SPFBO Special Edition To Be Continued story, revealed covers, toured with books and showed off others.
As promised, we continue reviewing the SPFBO 6 Finalists. Our next one up is Darkness Forged by Matt Larkin, chosen by Kitty G.
March is apparently the month of new beginnings. We are going to celebrate two anniversaries this month: Storytellers On Tour will turn 1 year old, and the blog will turn 3 years old. Man, time flies. There will be some celebratory stuff coming your way this month for sure!
But we’ll have a lot of other content as well: reviews, features, SPFBO stuff, author spotlights, book tour encores.
February went away way too fast. I WANT MY BIRTHDAY MONTH BACK! *ahem* We’ve been busy with SPFBO reading and SoT and a lot of other things. Though, to be absolutely honest, I’m struggling with reading a lot these days, so it’s probably about time for me to take a nice long break.
But fear not, we still had quite a lot of content in February including reviews, author spotlight, book tours and a lot of other things.
Have you ever wondered what might happen if you could throw a party of your choice and not only could you invite your MC(s) but other literary figures as well? In this feature, I ask you to imagine exactly that scenario and some more. Meet Matt Larkin and let’s get the party started!
After taking some time off (haha, as if, let’s not think about how many hours I spent with Photoshop among other things, shall we), we are back in full force. There will be quite a few reviews coming in January and we start getting SPFBO reviews out as well. And I’m planning to resurrect an old feature too. As well as launching my own reading challenge for 2021, but more about that tomorrow.
June won’t be any less exciting than May was, as things still keep happening. I finally started my new journey in life and I couldn’t be happier. SPFBO5 is about to kick off as well and I’ll be going to concerts too.
Exciting and at the same time terrifying things are happening to me these days and I can’t wait to see where things lead me. May probably will be a slow reading month as a lot of things are going on, so bear with me. On the other hand, I’ll catch up with reviews, so yay!
