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

Self Published Fantasy Releases – February 2019

A couple of months ago I wrote a blog listing the upcoming Self Published Fantasy Releases for December and January. It went well. A lot of people contacted me with the hope that I would turn it into a series of blogs. So, I will. This list will contain a few of the remaining books … Read moreSelf Published Fantasy Releases – February 2019

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

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 2018 – January 2019

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 2018 – January 2019

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
