Reblog Wednesday: The Warden of Everfeld: Memento, A Book Review

Austin L. Wiggins of https://writingsbyender.com was kind enough to post a review of The Warden of Everfeld: Memento on his site!

Go check it out, and his other book reviews, short fiction, thought pieces.

My favorite line from his review: “This book is deeply layered and impressively self-accurate.”

Thanks, Austin!

Writings By Ender

Centering on Aston the young adult, his love interest Jaed, and Arden the last and lost line to a powerful lineage, The Warden of Everfeld: Memento is a vibrant fantasy novel. Aston is nineteen years old and wants nothing more than to be a soldier like his father was before him, but has trouble being seen as anything more than a trainee. Jaed is Arden’s caretaker/adoptive big sister. All of them live in a place called the Refuge, called so because it consists of different clans of people whom sought shelter after various wars in the area. In Steven D’Adamo’s tale, Aston must decide allegiance between either his home the Refuge or his love Jaed and Arden.

This book is deeply layered and impressively self-accurate. Within the context of the story, is an in-depth look at this world’s history from creation to current times, but at no point in time…

Really great summary of a lecture given 10 years ago: “Achieving Your Childhood Dreams”. Worth the read and the listen!

GUEST POST: Writing for Yourself vs Writing for an Editor, by Steven D’Adamo

Sci-fi author Luther M Siler let me write a guest post for his website, which is pretty awesome. Have a look-see and check out his books. I’d be happy to have a fraction of the following he does. (Maybe just a slightly bigger fraction than currently. )

Thank you Luther!

For Whom Do You Write? (Hint: it always changes!)

Most of us say that we only write for ourselves, that it doesn’t matter how the outside world perceives our stories because we poured our hearts…

REblog Wednesday: Where To Discover New Music x4

Confession time! I have an obsession. It includes, but is not limited to, the following: rock, metal, indie, alternative, pop punk, r&b, hard rock, hip hop, and reggaeton. My iTunes library currently exceeds 15 thousand songs and is ever growing. Much like my physical book library, it continues to expand out of control.

I have been called a hoarder more than once.
I may have a problem.

Luckily for youuuuuu, all this means is that I have developed many a way to discover new fuel to satisfy my addiction. Listed below is my list of a few music finding resources. Continue reading REblog Wednesday: Where To Discover New Music x4

Reblog Wednesday: Ebook Piracy – What To Do If Someone Steals Your Book #KindlePreneur #h2e

Welp, here’s a side of ebook publishing I’ve never considered before. What can you do if someone publishes your free ebook without your permission? And should you do it?

Honest question: have any of you authors experienced this problem? How did you approach it? I’d love to hear your stories.

Shout-out to @SylviaHubbard1 for sharing this first and bringing it to my feed.

Reblog Wednesday: “A Persian Brew” – Mahdis Marzooghian

We’re going to start reblogging and/or linking one essay, article, or blog we find interesting, emotive, or hilarious each Wednesday, because sharing is caring.

First up this week is a vivid essay, “A Persian Brew”, by Mahdis Marzooghian about her experiences growing up Persian in the US. Mahdis is a friend and the Editor-in-Chief over at FiveOnTheFifth.com,

http://feminineinquiry.com/digital-issue/ – “A Persian Brew”

The most succinct thing I can say about Mahdis’s writing is that she made me — a white, blonde-haired, American male — feel like I was living her experiences. That is the connective power of brilliant storytelling.

I recommend reading the full issue here, but I just wanted to highlight Mahdis’s piece in particular. (Steve D)
