Trolls, goblins, wizards, elves, giants, and dragons, oh my!

bow of destinyHi everyone! Today I’m sharing another 5-star review just posted by a reader going by Over the Rainbow on Amazon:

Trolls, goblins, wizards, elves, giants, and dragons, oh my! The Bow of Destiny is a classic fantasy story full of fantastical creatures, magic, quests, and adventure…and just a smattering of romance. If you enjoy Tolkien, you’ll enjoy this novel. That being said, this is only the first book in the series, so be prepared for some threads to be left hanging. If you’re someone who wants to read the whole story in one go, you might want to wait for the series to be finished before starting this book. Overall, however, it was a fun read that moved fast enough to keep me engaged but had enough depth that I cared about the characters. Five stars.

 

 


I truly enjoy getting these reviews from readers who express satisfaction for The Bow of Destiny. It’s quite and honor and thrill to see the responses. As an author, these reviews really make my day.

Look for another post on Wednesday with a bit of news and some details on how I wrote the book and my choices. I meant to post this one last week but my schedule prevented getting a longer post out.

A Nickname’s Origin

I really meant to include just Hastra’s quote here but I thought a couple paragraph’s a better post. It’s a shrewd observation from Hastra – but then she’s a Withling with mystic skills who sees some irony in Athson…


TBOD Pinterest Board ThumbHastra passed Athson food from the dishes after Limbreth spooned out her own. “Among all these elven archers, why would you be called the Archer?”

Athson pulled a half-smirk of irritation as Limbreth cocked her head while she chewed. He glanced at Sarneth, who forked up vegetables from his plate but offered no help. “I’m considered better than even Gweld, but I lost a tourney on a wild last shot. It’s a joke.” His weak smile discomfited him, and he shoveled food into his mouth as the Withling withdrew the bowl. That old bow-string entangled him. But he’d escape it if he could.

“So an inerrant archer who’s inaccurate.”


That’s all for today! Have a great weekend and look for more posts next week.

Who Wins Between…

BoxersJust something a little light-hearted today – and geeky!

Something occurred to me along the lines of the questions/debates such as, “Between Batman and Superman who wins?” Thanks to Star Wars we do know who wins between a Jedi and a space dinosaur, er, Rancor: the Jedi!

And you also have to note in light of the last movie that Leia has come a long way from those early years and the Space Illustrated Swimsuit Edition parties hosted by Jabba the Hut!

Feel free to share your best ideas about who wins vs. who in the comments! Maybe there’s a tournament where a poll winner advances to the next round! Leave your suggestions and links!


That’s all for today! Later this week, I’ll share more about how I wrote The Bow of Destiny and how I’m doing on the next one.

The Bow of Destiny remains on sale at just  $1.49 the rest of July! Click over to one of these online retailers and see who wins in the hunt for the bow:
