The landscape of publishing has changed dramatically in recent years. The traditional path to getting their words to readers is no longer the only option available to writers today. As such, independently published authors have become a ubiquitous part of that landscape. You can connect with writers, traditional and independent, here by Subscribing to my Newsletter. And don’t forget to support your local Independent Bookseller by purchasing through them. If anything, it’ll give you a chance to get out of the house. Thanks for reading!

This Month’s Author Spotlight:  

Rhonda Parrish

For Ms. Parrish, this should really be called “Editor Spotlight.” While she is a writer and poet and prolific blogger, the work she done collecting and editing stories for the numerous fantasy anthologies she’s created are where she truly shines. The Magical Menagerie series is my personal favorite, which includes Fae, Corvidae, Scarecrow, Sirens, and Equus. They contain some of the finest fantasy writing I’ve ever read. I would say I became, late in life, a fan of the genre due to these collections.

She’s currently working on, among other things (like a novel, and stories of her own),  a series revolving around the five elements. Fire: Demons, Dragons and Djinns is the first book, and I highly recommend it. Unless, of course, you’re not a fan of great, truly imaginative tales. Then nevermind.
