Rankers Charge: Deliverance at Van Demon’s Deep By: S.P. Stevens

Ranker’s Charge: Deliverance at Van Demon’s Deep By: S.P. Stevens It is commonly said that the true fiber of a person will be determined by what they do when they face what seem to be impossible odds.  Will they run and hide, or stand up and tackle these challenges head on?  Indubitably, this is a sure-fire way in which to test an individual’s character.  With all of that in mind we can see how Ranker’s Charge:  Deliverance at Van Demon’s Deep, by author S.P. Stevens, puts this theory to the test.  Readers who are looking to explore such concepts...

All Roads Shattered By: Lisa Diaz Meyer

All Roads Shattered By: Lisa Diaz Meyer   What is evil?  The answer to that question has an awful lot to do with perspective.  What some people consider to be evil, others see as heroic.  With that thought in mind, have you ever wondered if there is a capacity for all of us to engage in dark and lurid conduct?  It can certainly be argued that nobody begins life with evil in their heart.  It is a conditioned behavior.  We all rely upon one another in some fashion, and when it all goes sideways… so do our actions.  Pretty...

Don’t Say You Can’t Publish

Don’t Say You Can’t Publish By:  Nina Romano If you’re writing short stories, poems, essays, or stand-alone novel excerpts, you should be submitting these in order to publish in small magazines, or literary journals. Once you have accrued some solid publications, this gives you a bit of clout when writing to agents, editors and publishers on behalf of a larger body of work. You can then query for a novel, a collection of short stories or poems. Always include an Author Bio, where you can mention the publications. When I was writing and submitting poetry, I’d send out poems...
