It’s a great week to be a bookwormdragon! I’m excited to announce that another author and friend has a new book out. Ashley Capes writes epic fantasy, genre-blending fantasy thrillers and gorgeous poetry. He’s just released the fifth novel in his Book of Never series, Imperial Towers.

Driven toward the enemy-occupied Imperial City, Never’s doubts grow. Even with new knowledge about his powers, can he truly keep his friends safe in a warzone? Or, like too many times before, will he end up responsible for the deaths of those he should have protected?

500 Prompts Down, 500 More to Go!

5 HistoricalEDIT: This promotion has ended…BUT you can still pick up the booklet for $0.99 USD. To be the first to hear about future sales and booklets, sign up for my author newsletter.

I’m pleased to report that 100 Historical Fiction Writing Prompts, the fifth volume in my Fiction Ideas series, is published and available for FREE on Amazon. You can read the full description below.

So far, I’m really happy with these booklets. I’ve received enthusiastic feedback from a few readers, and it seems the booklets are doing exactly what I’d hoped: providing inspiration to others. On a personal level, they’ve also been very fun and challenging for me to write. I’m stretching my creative muscles, pushing myself to explore genres in which I never thought I could write, and even learning more about the literary world (and in this case, history!) along the way.

At the halfway point (500 prompts, 5 booklets), I’m very relieved that I’ve yet to run out of ideas. One concern I had going into this project was that I would really struggle with coming up with so many prompts without repeating myself. While a few sub-genres have been tricky, and I’m sure a few themes have repeated, so far so good.

Thank you to all who have read my booklets and are looking forward to the rest of the series. I couldn’t do this without your support and encouragement. Happy writing!
