28 DoBR: Maxwell Demon by L. Bachman

This book is a shameless plug, but it’s a book. Maxwell Demon is the first book in my series The Blasphemer Series. The synopsis is merely the squishing down summarizing of how deep this story goes. When writing it I cried, I laughed, and really enjoyed the process that, for

28 DoBR: Complete Tales and Poems by Edgar Allan Poe

This poet, along with the writer Mary Shelly, was one of the first I’d ever heard about that really stuck with me. I am a big Edgar Allan Poe fan, with HP Lovecraft really being the only one to rival my love of his work. When I began practicing my

How You Can Help Your Favorite Author

It’s pretty easy how to help. Here’s a quick list of things you can do to show your support and help your favorite self-published, hybrid, or indie author. You don’t have to do all of them or any of them, but here are some good ideas on where to start!

28 DoBR: Edgar Cayce: The Sleeping Prophet by Jess Stearn
