Moonshadow’s Guardian by Dianna Gunn

I am so excited for the interview and amazing book I’m sharing today. I met Dianna Gunn during PitchWars 2016 and we instantly connected. During that time, I got to take a rare peek into an earlier version of her amazing book, Moonshadow’s Guardian, and instantly fell in love with the fuzzy dragon in this tale. I can’t wait to see this book out in the world. And so without further gilding the lily, and no more ado, I present Fantasy Author Dianna Gunn and Moonshadow’s Guardian.

Moonshadow’s Guardian (Moonshadow Rising #1)

All Riana has ever wanted is freedom. Unfortunately, that’s the one thing her kind cannot have.

Bound by the curse in her demonic blood for millennia, Riana has tried several times to bend the rules and live out her life in the mortal realm...

Tuesday Reviews – Deathmaker by Lindsay Buroker

Why I picked up this book:

After reading Balanced on the Blade’s Edge and utterly falling in love with the story and characters, there was only one option: keep going. No faster had I gotten the first book’s review done and I was already diving into this book. It came as part of an initial trilogy package, but there are many more books in this series.

This review may contain spoilers.

Deathmaker (Dragon Blood #2)

When Lieutenant Caslin Ahn joined Wolf Squadron, she was prepared for the reality that she might one day be killed in the line of duty. She was less prepared for being shot down, assumed dead by her own people, and dragged off to the Cofah Empire as a prisoner of war...

The Ready Room

Genorä (Greetings) from Starship Hàlön. Or as I like to call it… my blog.

Sunday is the day I check over my goals for the previous week and start laying out work for the week ahead. It’s also the day I’m catching up on laundry, scrubbing the disaster zone disguised as my house, and side-eyeing food in the refrigerator that refuses to cook itself.

The Ready Room will become a set of articles released on Sundays. I’ll explore a variety of topics to get writers and bloggers ready for the week ahead. Most information will come from my own experience with writing, media, development and design, though some topics may come from a discussion that piques my interest...

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

In all honestly, if it wasn’t for my mom I probably would never have started writing.

I started writing short stories (on a typewriter) for my mom a very long time ago to read to her. She had become legally blind due to diabetes and one day out of the blue as I was reading a book to her my mom said, why don’t I write some stories maybe something about Star Trek? (That was her favorite show)...
