A Gleaming Path Excerpt – Those Who Call The Ocean Home

Earlier this year, The Legend of Light kicked off its adventure with the opening volume, The Echoes of Light. This is a young adult, high fantasy trilogy that any fan of such series like The Legend of Zelda, Shannara, Earthsea, and The Chronicles of Narnia should enjoy, one filled with magic, myths, monsters, and loads of action.

A reawakened terror swept across the kingdom of Tordale in Book One, forcing our heroes like the young swordsman, Alamor, and the princess of the kingdom, Raissa Hokara, into action. After obtaining the sacred vessel of magic known as the Radia of Gallantry, Alamor, Raissa, and their companions still have a long journey ahead of them, one which will take them across the oceans surrounding Tordale, and into the perilous desert, the Arid Reaches. Both Alamor and Raissa will continue to develop their understanding of the supreme power they wield, while facing some of Tordale’s bloodiest secrets.

Interview with Armand Baltazar: Author of Timeless – Diego and the Rangers of the Vastlantic

I’ve interviewed my fair share of authors, artists, athletes, professional wrestlers, and actors throughout the years, but this was a special one for me. I read Timeless – Diego and the Rangers of the Vastlantic earlier this year and simply adored it, so much so that I can comfortably say it’s my favorite book that I’ve read in many years. The host of vivid, detailed illustrations that gave us looks into the story’s unique world of fantasy, scifi, and steampunk elements helped make it one of the most unique artistic endeavors that I’ve ever enjoyed.

Interview with Author Isaac Hooke

I’ve always been passionate for writing my own stories because I love the escapism of fiction. I’m an avid reader of comics and literature, I spend many hours playing video games, I’ve watched Lord knows how many animes, I often make multiple trips to the movie theater every month — I just plain love storytelling and everything that goes with it.

From Sketch to Cover – The Echoes of Light Artwork

One of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had in putting together The Legend of Light trilogy didn’t have anything to do with writing, or even the story, itself. Collaborating with my cover artist, Pam Hage, was the kind of work I’ve dreamed of doing since I was a little kid watching behind-the-scenes featurettes on DVD extras for such films like Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings, seeing how concept art builds the eventual imagery that audiences see.

The Echoes of Light Excerpt – Alamor Duels a Strife Wing

There are certain scenes that stay with you, that you can remember detail for detail off the top of your head. Especially in the case of an author, there are scenes that are so important to you, that you never forget every last thought and feeling that swirled through your body as you were writing a particular moment in your story.

Interview With Artist Dara Gold

I first became familiar with Dara Gold and her art a few years ago when I came across her booth at Niagara Falls Comic Con. A friend of mine was particularly interested in a Magikarp drawing she had done, while her Wind Waker print was what caught my eye. Knowing she was a huge Legend of Zelda fan, like myself, I would later have her draw me a commission of Kaepora Gaebora, from Ocarina of Time.
