Review Blog – Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

Kings of the Wyld is fantastic, imaginative, and unique. One of the most impressive debuts I’ve read in a LONG time. So the premise of KotW is that it is set in a Dungeons & Dragons style world with humans and monsters living side by side and not really getting along too well. Oh, and … Read moreReview Blog – Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames

An Apology Regarding the Never Die Paperback

It’s come to my attention that the paperbacks of Never Die have a number of typos and grammatical errors in them. The truth is… I fucked up. I uploaded the wrong file to IngramSpark, so the copy of the manuscript that was sent to print was pre-final proofing. I’m sorry to everyone who has already … Read moreAn Apology Regarding the Never Die Paperback

Review Blog – Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Brandon Sanderson is a man with a formula. Luckily for us all, he knows the formula so damned well that he can use it to tell a compelling story in almost any genre. Skyward is the story of Spensa (which sounds far less pretentious when you just pronounce is Spencer), a young girl facing the … Read moreReview Blog – Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Review Blog – Chasing Graves by Ben Galley

Dark, dangerous, and full of humour. This is how I like my grimdark. Chasing Graves is a dark book, where the world is a shit place, and it only gets shittier once you die. But there is humour to offset the oppression, and glimmers of something shiny underneath all the muck. This book is set … Read moreReview Blog – Chasing Graves by Ben Galley

Review Blog – Paternus: Wrath of Gods by Dyrk Ashton

Paternus: Wrath of Gods is book 2 in Dyrk Ashton’s Paternus trilogy, and to review it I first need to say a little something about book 1. In Paternus, Dyrk broke all the rules. He wrote in present tense, gave us an omnipotent perspective that head hops at an impressive rate, and exposits all over … Read moreReview Blog – Paternus: Wrath of Gods by Dyrk Ashton

What to expect from ol’ Bobby Jo in 2019

It’s the last day of 2018, and what a year it’s been. Honestly there are days I wonder how we all made it through this shit storm… But that’s not what this post is about. It’s about the future! And that’s why instead of the usual Gatsby meme to welcome in the new year, I’ve … Read moreWhat to expect from ol’ Bobby Jo in 2019

My Favourite 5 of 2018

I’m not a prolific reader. In fact most years I’m lucky if I make it through 2 books a month. But in 2018 I set myself the goal of reading more books, even if that meant listening to half of them. So as the year’s end draws near I have read 38 books! This might … Read moreMy Favourite 5 of 2018

The Pressures of Releasing a Book

You’ve written a book. That’s the hard part out of the way, right? All those words mashed up onto a page in some sort of coherent jumble that tells a compelling narrative. Weeks, months, years even of hard work vomited onto into word document and edited and edited and edited until you are so sick … Read moreThe Pressures of Releasing a Book
