When I consider the challenges that I’ve face over the last few years in the effort of writing for public consumption, it occurred to me that authors would benefit greatly from fostering a climate of community rather than competitiveness…that we could all benefit from the notion of mutually reciprocal cross-promotion. Every neophyte author is faced with the same slippery slope of roaring indifference when trying to spread the message of their craft to the reading public…challenges that can be disheartening to say the least.
To this end, I’ve decided that I would open the blog portion of my site to the concept of featuring the offerings of other fantasy authors who are more or less in the same situation as myself. Fantasy is a genre of immense creative and artistic potential and stunning beauty and those who love the world of the epic fantasy saga are ravenous consumers of the art. Thus, there is no need to take the me for myself approach to promotion and the community of fantasy author can benefit by spreading the gospel of the genre as it were…both their own works and the works of others.
The first work I would like to feature is not a fantasy novel, but rather a modern sci-fi...arguably a close cousin of the genre. The novel is entitled 300 Nights by author Kriss Perras.

Here is a brief synopsis to the novel:
About the Book:
300 Nights is a cyberpunk science fiction novel where a society
controlled by genetic manipulation creates social classes based on
neural implants and gene bums. The biological superpower, the Basic
Protection Corporation, controls the key to human survival. Yet, the
Company stands idly by while a deadly space-born virus hurled down to
Earth during an apocalyptic meteor storm annihilates the human
population above ground. Exiled to the Earth’s womb, humanity now
faces the BPC-born threat of another race more powerful and genetically
superior to the Homo Sapien. Humanity hangs in the balance with their
defenders Benner, caught in the Demon’s Hole of the next generation
Mindbender, and Miranda only just discovering who she really is in a
gritty new world.
