Manly Hero Kirkus Review Published!

Manly Hero

Our Kirkus Review was published yesterday! And we really like these two lines. 🙂

“Rood nicely imagines this fantasy world, and the story’s banter and wordplay are consistently witty…A fun fairy-tale fantasy that should please fans of William Goldman’s The Princess Bride.” — Kirkus Reviews

Manly Hero in Paperback! (and other news)

Do Manly proud and enjoy a good cup of tea while reading. :)

Do Manly proud and enjoy a good cup of tea while reading. 🙂

It’s finally here! The real, page edges can cut you, paper edition of our book! 🙂 And I’m pretty excited about it. Of course, last year I was also very excited about the ebook version of it being finished, but there is something about having a physical copy of it. Manly Hero, my book, sitting on my shelf, reminding me daily of both what I have accomplished and why I need to keep working on book two. That magic makes the paperback copy special. So, if you too are a lover of paperback books, check it out here.

In other news, you may notice in the next few days that the name of our blog is changing. This is just us trying to clean up all our social media and make it easier to use and keep track of. We’ve decided to use our pen name for our social media. So, Adrastus Rood will be the name of this blog, our twitter account, and our facebook page. (We’ve still got the Manly Hero facebook page up and running as well.) We’re also hoping that this is the year we fancy up our websites. But, with as busy as we’ve been, I’m not holding my breath. 😉

Lastly, we’ve got a new writing project that we are going to announce in the new year. Very excited about it. More info to come soon.
