It’s time to bring back the Link Feast, where I share with you all the cool things I’ve come across in the past several weeks that I think you might be interested in like free books, giveaways, articles on life, dreams, art, and book stuff. So without further ado: Let the feasting begin!
Patrick W. Carr is gearing up for the launch of his upcoming novel, The Shock of Night, with the release of the novella, By Divine Right. For free! I loved A Cast of Stones, and his The Staff and Sword trilogy. So I am very curious about this next fantasy series. If you haven’t read A Cast of Stones, it’s also free!
Enclave Publishing, once Marcher Lord Press, still has a bunch of their books for free. I’ve listed them on a previous link feast, so check it out if you haven’t already. Keep an eye on the horizon. They have a new batch of books coming next month. Eep!
The god of the soil is furious. Volcanic eruptions, sinkholes, earthquakes–everything points to his unhappiness. At least this is what the people of Armania in the Five Realms believe.
Amidst the unsettling state of the world around them, the princes of Armania live their lives focused more on who will claim the throne after their sickly father, King Echad, dies. That is until Prince Wilek’s concubine turns up dead–beside her, a bloodied message that seems to have come from the mother realms.
Kat Heckenbach is celebrating the new cover of Finding Angel by giving away two copies!
Angel doesn’t remember her magical heritage…but it remembers her.
Magic and science collide when she embarks on a journey to her true home, and to herself.
Gillian Bronte Adams is giving away a copy of Orphan’s Song.
In a world woven by a melody and shattered by discord, a girl discovers that her song contains a far greater power than she could ever have imagined. A power that a ruthless soldier and his evil master seek to possess. A power that her guardian wants silenced.
Oh so true… Super-normal things that make nervous people way more nervous. Anyone else feel my pain?
Balancing Dreams & Reality
Pursuing your dreams is challenging and outright confusing at times, so advice and guidance are needed and can be such a relief. Sometimes. Michael Hyatt shares that there are people you should never take advice from. And he suggests five things to do instead.
Fellow Realm Maker and founder of Splickety Publishing Group, Ben Wolf is on a mission to let his kids know how much he loves them while providing other parents with the opportunity to do the same with their own children with his children’s book, I’d Punch a Lion in His Eye for You, where he goes on adventures with his son and has to save him from all sorts of predicaments involving animals like lions, sharks, and T-Rexes. Oh my! Check out his Kickstarter campaign for more information.
