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

Self Published Fantasy Releases December – January

I often see lists of upcoming releases for traditionally published books. But what I never see are lists of upcoming self published releases. So I figured I’d change that. The plan is to do one of these a month, but due to Christmas being a thing, I’m starting with a two monther. This will in … Read moreSelf Published Fantasy Releases December – January

Review Blog – The Ember Blade by Chris Wooding

Look, I’ve been a Chris Wooding fan for years now ever since I unwittingly stumbled across Retribution Falls. It was a fast paced, swashbuckling adventure with a gallery of rogues brought to life by truly excellent characterisation. So I quickly read everything else Chris had written and eagerly awaited more. The Ember Blade was a … Read moreReview Blog – The Ember Blade by Chris Wooding

First off a little disclaimer. This book is entered into this year’s SPFBO (Self Published Fantasy Blog Off) and is in BookNest’s group.

This is my own personal review.   I’m gonna start off by saying I … Read moreReview Blog – We Ride the Storm by Devin Madson

Review Blog – Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan

A book about manly men being angry at things! Oh, alright I’ll do a proper review. Promise of Blood starts with a bang and I must admit I really enjoyed it at the start. We join the story amid a revolution; ageing general (and very angry man) Tamas overthrows the monarchy and the aristocracy, and … Read moreReview Blog – Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan

Review Blog – Superhero City: Ghoul by Eddie Skelson

X-Men meets The Running Man. (If you don’t know what The Running Man is, you should quickly go and familiarise yourself with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s back catalogue. Do it. Do it now!)   Superhero City: Ghoul is a fascinating look at superheroes in a corporate, capitalist America gone mad. It’s a world that’s all about the … Read moreReview Blog – Superhero City: Ghoul by Eddie Skelson

Review Blog – Horus Rising by Dan Abnett

So after checking out the first Fabius Bile book in the 40k catalogue, I decided I wanted to try some others, and the Horus Heresy saga has always been interesting to me. So I asked a few friends and they came up with a reading list, somewhat predictably starting with book 1. This is the … Read moreReview Blog – Horus Rising by Dan Abnett
