Apollo’s Raven New Release and Kirkus Review
I am excited to announce that Book 1: Apollo’s Raven was released on April 10 and a review of the book by Kirkus was published today.
“A complex and promising start to a new fantasy series.” — Kirkus Reviews

As a debut author, I’d love to hear your feedback on Apollo’s Raven and encourage you to write your honest review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and/or Goodreads. This is one of the best ways to give your opinion about a book and at the same time give authors your feedback. It also serves as an important guide that readers can use to select their next book.
More information on giveaways and special deals on Apollo’s Raven in May are forthcoming.
Another platform that I have begun to use is Bublish which provides a dashboard for authors to create and publicize their books. What is most powerful about this platform is that authors can create what is called a “bubble” where they can publicly provide their insight on excerpts from their books. The following link is an example of a bubble that provides my insight on Chapter 1 of Apollo’s Raven bit.ly/2nVPL36 . In the future, I’ll create other bubbles that provide background as to why I wrote a scene in a certain way. The good news is the site is open to readers as well as authors.
Another powerful tool from Bublish is that authors can draft their next book directly into their system. The author can create a bubble that publicly displays an excerpt from a draft to get comments from other authors and readers. The final plus is the final manuscript can be converted to epub to create an e-book, or downloaded in word or PDF format. The manuscript of Book 2: Empire’s Anvil has been transferred to this site, and I will be seeking comments on certain scenes in the future.
