I know it might seem funny, coming after the previous 3 videos, but I needed a channel trailer, so I put this together, just outlining what you can expect on the author youtube page.

Story Thieves by James Riley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a creative book! It was aimed at younger readers, so I resisted reading it when my children were obsessed with it. But then a friend of min also recommended it to me and I gave it a read. It was very enjoyable, fun and an all around great adventure.
The characters are very well developed and unique. I like that they don't always do what is best, but they do things that would be true to their personal experiences and desires. That made these characters really come to life for me.
I loved how Riley brought in pop culture books and even poked fun at himself as an author. That was witty and appreciated.
However, if I must be honest, the thing I loved most about this book was the acknowledgements and dedication. That was truly brilliant! Great book!

As many of you know I've been working on Mordyar's back story for the past year or so. It has made a lot of progress and is starting to really come together.
In this post I have two reveals that I hope you will love.
First I want to share with you the title of this book! Up to this point we have just been calling it Mordyar's book, or the Kingdom of Denall Prequel. But now we have a title, that was published in my recent collaborative project, a book called Wren and the Ravens. Here it is!
Sneak Peek Number 2: In my current work through of this book many fun and exciting things have come to the characters. I think you'll enjoy watching Mordyar, who starts out as a young unmarked man named Mord, go through his growth as a character into the person we have known from the Kingdom of Denall trilogy.
Here's one of my favorite quotes from him in what I was writing yesterday. It hasn't gone through edits yet, so it might not make the final draft, but here's a very short snippet.
Quote from my WIP:
"What happened to your fear to do wrong?" Sadok asked.
Mord turned around and opened the door to exit the room. "I guess it was overcome by my fear to not do what was right."
I know it was a short quote, but I hope it gives you some shivers, or gets you a little more excited about the upcoming book! I'll keep everyone posted on progress of the book, and hopefully soon, I'll be doing a cover reveal. Lots of fun things in the pipeline!
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Reading The Way of Kings feels a lot like entering another world. It had a similar feel to Wheel of Time in that it was so well developed, and entertaining that I fell in love with it, but I could also sum up the major plot elements in a sentence or two.
It is truly masterful to be able to write and incorporate such detail while keeping the reader engaged and Sanderson is a master of making this balance. There were several twists in this book that I'm sure will pan out in future books but it still had a solid ending that left me feeling satisfied, which is a must for me in five star ratings.
I'm looking forward to reading other books in this series and I recommend it to all ages of fantasy readers. It is a clean fantasy book which is hard to find, but very refreshing. I loved this book all around. Another great success for Sanderson!
