As most of you know by now, I write mostly fantasy novels as a second career/hobby. It’s also the same gene that I read, a lot. I’ve read so many different novels from different times (everything from The Hobbit to Chance Lee) that I call myself an aficionado.
To me, we all should embrace a good fantasy novel once in awhile. Sometimes the real world is a cold, cruel place. A good novel with a far off land and a fun cast of characters gives us a break from the difficulty that life sometimes hands out.
My recommendations? That depends on what you’re looking for. You can’t go wrong with the classics but don’t be afraid to try the new stuff. Patrick Kampman, Kevin Hearne, and Rick Riordan are three of my favorites. Kevin and Rick build interactive settings while Patrick kills it with fun characters.
I know you probably have your favorite authors and I’d love to hejeremycrostonre. Who knows, maybe one of you will list me!
