Hello GSCH Book readers. As I have been reading books, I've been thinking what books to suggest for the book club, and I completely forgot one I should have mentioned from the outset, because it was written by someone very close to me. My own dad.

Now, you may be all like "Aww, the kid wants to promote his dad. How cute," and ignore it, and if so, fine. However, I would strongly urge you to give the book he wrote a go. I am an extremely critical person, and I am very judgemental. I don't go easy on anyone or anything. Not even my own dad. Now, if you're still reading, you're probably like "Great Ragmar, what's the name of the book?" It's called The Incarnadine Stair by Brad Taylor. He is not the same person who wrote the Pike Logan books, just so you know.

I loved the book, and got the chance to help edit it. It's a classic fantasy about a mage, but it is not written in your typical, flowery, stylistic writing that is a bi-product of most magical series. My father's story is written in a quite matter-of-fact style, and it's like a fable. It's a refreshing twist on a well-covered genre. Some of you may not like this, but still, I would ask you at least give it a shot.

It's available on amazon.com and the Barnes and Noble website for relatively cheap.

 

Now let's correlate this to the title. I would like to read the books your friends and family have written and published. Let me know the book, and I would love to read it when I get a shot.

Very tempted to post the first 3 chapters of my little story I wrote way back when. It's pretty graphic and not very kid friendly though.

I have one book published, but it is non-fiction. I used to be a music journalist, and was approached to write a book about a band I had interviewed.

It actually put me off writing for a living, as I did not like the lack of artistic freedom.  The editing process sucked, but that is I guess due to me being new to it and the publishing company being somewhat single minded and more interested in profit than quality!

@rag-- is it available via nook/kindle?

 

@fog-- post it :)  just make sure you have certain locks and warnings about age appropriateness ( i am sure you would have done that anyway).

I believe it is available in kindle, yes. Not entirely certain about nook. I'll edit the post when I get a chance to ask my dad.
