L.R. Barrett-Durham self-published her first epic fantasy novel, Never Trust a Sorcerer, in September of 2011. She has published five books in her first year as an indie author.  While writing the second book to The Trust Series, Always Trust Your Honor, she met her coauthor E. G. Glover and began working on their paranormal romance series, The Fear Series. Book One, Fear the Beast Within, was finished in thirty-seven days and was published one day apart from Always Trust Your Honor. Book Two, Fear the Thirst Within, was published in May 2012.  Her newest novel, Book Three of The Trust Series, Forever Trust Your Aim, is fresh off the presses, being published September 4, 2012, just thirteen days shy of the one year mark.

A native of North Alabama, L R is not only an author, but also a freelance artist while she isn’t at her day job, being a Network Technician for one of the largest Credit Unions in Alabama. She illustrated the covers of each of her five books, in addition to designing the promotional banners as well as jewelry taken right from the descriptions provided on the pages of her books. She also makes fantasy stained glass dragons and gargoyles, and custom pieces.

E.G. Glover is new to the novel-writing scene with Fear the Beast Within, which was written and published with L R Barrett-Durham in January 2012. He flirted with idea of writing in high school by authoring various poems and short stories, but it wasn’t until recently that his dream of writing a novel became a reality.

Four short months later, he and L. R. Barrett-Durham published Book Two of The Fear Series entitled, Fear the Thirst Within. He is currently working on Fear the Emptiness Within, Book Three of The Fear Series, with Barrett-Durham.

This Alabama native’s hopes with this series are to prove that a romantic story can be told with a male’s point of view entwined, and still hold its romanticisms. Check their website at http://fearandtrust.freewebspace.com/ or chat with them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/fearandtrust.

When L R Barrett-Durham began writing the Trust series, she never expected it to blossom as it has. After all, the first tale – Never Trust A Sorcerer- sat, completed, in her computer database for years until she decided to self-publish it. After careful research into whether or not to sign with a publishing agency or self-publish, L R Barrett-Durham liked the amount of control she had with self-publishing and went with CreateSpace. She only expected to release the one book.

Now her third book, Forever Trust Your Aim, is available to buy!

Teaser for ‘Trust’:
“It has been three years since the death of Remus’ greatest foe, and all is peaceful, except in Vlasisith’s heart. His life-mate still won’t awaken from her slumber and he’ll do anything he can to get her back. After an underhanded plot put into motion by the Wemic Queen, he takes his love to her family in hopes that they can help. Giamar Tremalian, Captain of the Elven Army, ventures out for Moondale on a simple errand, only to find that he is needed by Vlasisith. He quickly offers to help, but gets more than he bargained for. Little do they both know that clerics have disappeared to the south and the village of Oglethorpe has been completely destroyed by a man clad in black wielding powers that threaten them all. And he’s heading north. International selling author, L R Barrett-Durham, brings the life back into Epic Fantasy with The Trust Series. The saga continues with the third installment, Forever Trust Your Aim, and there is no end in sight for the adventures of Remus.” (Care Of amazon.com)

Memphis author Robert J. Krog is a marvelous storyteller. Having been bitten by the plot bunny, it does not look like this delightful writer is going to stop anytime soon. We certainly hope he does not.

From Goodreads.com
In a kingdom haunted by witches, where vampires hunt in the night, when there are murders but not witnesses, when the method of murder reveals the how but not the who, one calls upon the eye-man to help solve crimes. The eye-man has the answer. It can be found in a bag full of eyes, along with things one does not seek. What is a royal inspector to do? He does his duty of course, though duty can be such unpleasant work.

Here is the tale of Royal Inspector Sir Gordon spending a night as an old lady, of a night he didn’t live, of the eye-man and his methods, of a vampire and his victims, and of a bargain with a witch…

About Robert J Krog

He has been an assistant arborist for his father, who was a professional arborist. He has also been a grocery store clerk, a waiter for one week, an order out delivery guy for one week, a legal runner, a substitute teacher, and high school History teacher, all in Memphis, TN.

He has several degrees, mostly in History, and is putting none of them to good use, though he loves History and can still translate Ancient Egyptian, if he works at it.

His debut collection, Stone Maiden and Other Tales, has been followed by this new novella.

Love action-packed fantasy that is not slowed by a lot of description? Then you might want to try out D. A. Adam’s ‘Brotherhood of Dwarves’! It is FREE on Kindle on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 and Wednesday, May 2, 2012. Share this with your friends!

“Roskin, heir to the throne of a remote, peaceful kingdom of dwarves, craves excitement and adventure. Outside his own kingdom, in search of fortune and glory, he finds a much different world, one divided by racial strife and overrun by war. The orcs to the south want to conquer all dwarves and sell them as slaves. The humans to the east want to control the world’s resources. Caught in the middle, Roskin finds himself chased by slave traders and soldiers alike as he discovers that friendship is the best fortune of all. Just when he thinks he has triumphed, an act of betrayal sends him into bondage. His only hope of escape is the faltering courage of a disgraced warrior whose best days are behind him.”  (taken from http://www.amazon.com/The-Brotherhood-Dwarves-D-Adams/dp/…)
“Truly a wonderful read! Adams cleverly introduces the physical features, customs, and locations of three clans of dwarves in the first two pages! Still leaving room to learn about the humans, elves, orcs, and ogres of his world, it is truly a remarkable achievement. Alot of action, so there is no drawing out of scenes. Once you pick it up, do not be surprised if you are several chapters in before you realize how much time has gone by. Definitely recommended for any action reader – fantasy or not.” – Herika R. Raymer, speculative fiction writer

Need more incentive? How about the book was liked by the character actor John Rhys-Davies? The author actually has a photo of he and Mr. Rhys-Davies with the book between them. Mr. Rhys-Davies is said to have really enjoyed this book about dwarves.
