The Kickstarter Campaign to bring Rayden Valkyrie to the screen in the form of a tv pilot episode went live today. This is the biggest project I’ve ever set out to do and one of the most personal as it involves a character near and dear to my heart. I hope everyone takes a look at the campaign, including the 4 minute introductory video where I talk about Rayden and why bringing her to the screen is important.
You can also see the first concept art piece created for the project by artist Jerome Sayers, which came out beautifully.
The campaign has a lot of reward levels, with exclusive, credits, events, and much more. I also wrote a blog post about this project which you can find at this link.
Please copy and share the following link everywhere you can, as this one is the official campaign page:

I wanted to highlight a wonderful new review of Heart of a Lion, at the Beauty in Ruins Book Blog out of Canada. This is a very exciting review as this reviewer is very versed in the Sword and Sorcery genre. This quote in particular was an immense honor to read!
“Rayden Valkyrie is a fantasy heroine who can stand tall and proud alongside Red Sonja (Robert E. Howard), Jalav (Sharon Green), Estri (Janet E. Morris), Raven (Richard Kirk), Morgaine (CJ Cherryh), Paks (Elizabeth Moon), and – of course – Xena.”
I will be announcing the winners of the Fire HD 8 giveaway, along with the winners of the signed books and eBook bundles, on Thursday. The winners will be posted here on the site, so be sure to check here around early afternoon, eastern time zone. A big thanks to all who entered and participated!
I have a couple of blog tours up for sign-ups. They take place the final week of October and the first week of November, for Hellscapes Volume 2 and Heart of a Lion, respectively.
We are looking for book bloggers and reviewers to host activities ranging from interviews, reviews and perhaps other activities for these two week-long tours. I really want to put a lot of effort into these two weeks, so if you know some book blogs, or are a book blogger yourself, please do have a look! I want to make these fun and informative visits. I really enjoy blog tours and am excited about these two back to back tours!
