June 2018 Author Recap

I hope you enjoyed the previous month’s worth of introductions to authors you may not know. It was my pleasure to share such talented writers with all of you.

AUTHORSYOUSHOULD KNOWI had the idea in late May to do a month long series exposing my followers to other writers who I admire and read. When I started this project, I told no one. I wanted it to be a surprise for all the authors involved. No one knew who I was going to share or when. It was pretty cool to see the surprise coming in from those whom I featured. For those writers, I do hope it was a well-received surprise. For you readers, I hope you found a new author or two to check out and sample their work.

I want to stress that there were many other authors I could’ve included. I don’t want to upset any of my author friends that may not have been included in this first series of Authors You Should Know. Please don’t take it as a slight against you or your work.

For a recap of each author, please click their name below and it will take you to the brief post I published. I encourage you to try someone new and try one of their books. You never know when you might come across a writer you’ll absolutely have to read. It’s difficult finding readers. My hope is that you found something useful through the month of June within these posts.

Jason’s Authors You Need to Know – Brent A. Harris

BrentToday’s author you need to know is Brent A. Harris.

Brent is an amazing author of science fiction and alternate ATimeofNeedhistory. He’s extremely talented and well worth a chance. I’ve read several of his short stories through Inklings Press and his novel A Time of Need (you can see my video review of it here). I’ve been impressed with everything I’ve read so far.

I don’t recall when or exactly how I met Brent, but I do know it was over Twitter. Most likely it was through Inklings Press. He’s been a big advocate of my work and a great sounding board when I’ve asked. I can’t say enough positive things about Brent as a fellow author and friend.

From his Amazon page:

Brent A Harris is a Sidewise Award nominated author of alternate history. He also writes science fiction, horror, and fantasy. Previously published works can be found through Insomnia Publishing, Rivenstone Press, Rhetoric Askew, and Inklings Press, the latter having published his short story, Twilight of the Mesozoic Moon, which reaped the Sidewise Award nomination.

He is the author of A Time of Need, an alternate history of the American Revolution, which sees a world where George Washington fights alongside the British against American forces marshaled under a power-hungry Benedict Arnold.

Brent resides in Southern California, where he’s become convinced that Joshua trees are in fact, real trees. When not writing, he focuses on his family, shuttling children around as a stay-at-home dad.

Check out all his short stories and his novel A Time of Need on Amazon and give this talented author a try.

Book Review: “A Time of Need”

For 2018, I want to try something different. I’m planning on creating one video book review per month of new and indie authors. You’re in luck because I start off this new segment with a review of the alternative history novel “A Time of Need” by author and friend Brent A. Harris. It’s taken me too long to read this, but as the saying goes, good things come to those that wait.

Here’s the video with my review. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of this new feature of my blog. Thanks!
