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…
I’m actually happy November is behind us. It was an emotional roller coaster ride from start to finish. Fortunately both starting and ending on a good note – if I want to go with my roller coaster analogy, the cart arrived to the same spot from where it had taken off – so now I can fully concentrate on December and look forward to the coming Christmas. For the first time in many years I’m really excited about the holidays. But more about that in the Sneak Peek post in a few days. Let’s see what happened on my blog in November:
This year I’m taking part in SPFBO as an advisor for Fantasy Book Review’s judging team. I decided to offer a spot to the authors in our group. The spotlight today shines on Toby Bennett!
Wait. What happens with time? Someone speed it up! It can’t be November already! Where is my October??? Give me a moment while I panic, will you?
Okay, I’m better now. I’m a bit behind on posts because I had become sick after returning from the UK, so a review and my post about said UK trip will be up later this week, thus they will count as November posts. So, let’s see what I had in store for you in October:
This book is a rough diamond which needs some polishing, but man, you can see it shine anyway. The Endless Ocean is a tale of a great adventure to fantastical worlds, pirates, ancient creatures. Sinbad’s adventures meets legends of the ancient era, giving birth to an epic fantasy worth your time.
