Bree Moore has been writing fantasy since the fourth grade. She lives in Ogden, is wife to an amazing husband, and the mother of four children. She writes fantasy novels between doling out cheerios and folding laundry.

“Woven” is Bree’s first published novel, the start of what she intends to be an epic writing career.

In real-life, Bree works as a birth doula and midwife’s assistant, attending women in pregnancy and labor, which is huge inspiration for her writing.

Woven

For thirty years, Elaina has sat in her tower, fingers caught in an eternal dance, cursed to weave the tapestry of life on her loom. Bound by an enchanted mirror whose magic shows her the distant lives of the people of Camelot, she must forever watch a land which remains ever beyond her reach. Elaina despairs that she will ever experience more than just the shadows of life, until one day a face appears in the mirror that will change her life, and possibly her fate, forever.

Guinevere is losing her mind. When a severe injury to her head nearly kills her and awakens alternate personalities suppressed from her past, Guinevere learns that one of them is plotting with a knight of the round table to murder King Arthur and take control of Camelot. In the midst of war, Guinevere fights to save both her own life and the man she loves, each day coming closer to succumbing to the violent personalities within her.

Inspired by Arthurian legend and Lord Alfred Tennyson’s ballad, “The Lady of Shalott”, Woven spins a tale of two women who must risk everything to save those they love most into an epic of enchantment, love, and madness.

A former National Director of Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) Europe, Stan Faryna is an entrepreneur, online strategist, Christian author, blogger, gamer, clumsy gardener, and novelist.


Can you imagine the future? How about the second half of the 2020s? Maybe what you imagine is not how Stan Faryna sees it. 
Beyond the realism of this tragic, near future world stage for Francesco’s story, Faryna offers sharp insights into the human condition, the power of love, and hope. He does so with a nuanced irony and sensitivity that feels too true to ignore – if also difficult to accept. The author asks us to come to a higher place of self-understanding and action, but he does not throw down a gauntlet of big words and intimidating intellectual challenges.

 



Puppets – When SPACE was a thing.

I only had a monkey hand-puppet as a youngster. If I’d had these, I might have grown up to write science fiction…oh, wait…never mind.

Hello, my name is Tiger Hebert, and I write dark, epic fantasy that dares to hope. My big project at the moment is my Beating Back the Darkness series. The Chronicles of Aurion is a novella that serves as a prelude to the first novel, Dragon’s Fire. This is a five part series, with the next book coming late ’17/early 18′. I also partnered with a fantastic group of writers to produce a free, war-themed anthology titled War Torn, which released on August 1st.

My writing has everything from marauding minotaurs to spell slingin’ sorcerers, and wild battles with dragons and siege weapons. The characters are thrust into impossible situations and the choices they make determine their fate. The stories and worlds are fantastical, but are gritty and bear truths, and that is why I call it dark, epic fantasy that dares to hope.

Most of his friends from High School still don’t even know his first name. Known only as either “Mulder” or “Agent”, there was an unforgettable moment when a girl he was dating expressed her confusion when a friend approached him and called him “Richard”. The ongoing joke was “Hey Mulder, where’s Scully?” Ironically he later married a redhead…

World renown today as “The Godfather of SciFan”, Richard M. Mulder is the founder of the Science Fantasy Society and the Co-Producer of SciFan™ Magazine.

A primeval darkness threatens to destroy mankind…
The world’s largest gaming platform in the entire industry is led by a man with many secrets. The popular game DarkForce features the World of Zion which has been plagued by the destructive will of the Leviathan for centuries. What gamers don’t know is that the World of Zion actually exists, and the Leviathan has fed off of the souls of men and his fodder has become scarce. He now turns to Earth with an insatiable hunger. Only a woman from Earth who levels up to discover a divine inner power can challenge Earth’s Apocalyptic Fate.

A Note From the Author:
“Conquest” is a prequel story that explores the oft-unanswered question of why and how gamers get stuck in the game. Be aware that if you are looking for a hard-core LitRPG story, this one probably isn’t for you. I intend to write book 2, “War”, in a manner where readers could skip “Conquest” if they so desire. That said, I hope you enjoy my apocalyptic-themed story!
