Jason’s Authors You Should Know – Eric Asher

Eric_R_Asher_ProfileToday’s author you should know is Eric Asher.

So…Eric Asher. The dude is amazing! His writing is so engaging and entertaining. If you don’t know him, he writes urban fantasy and steampunk (among other genres) and he writes it well! Eric hails from St. Louis but you’ll most often find him out in the wild at some type of reader/author convention around the US.

I first met Eric at a small con called ConTamination in St. Louis back in 2016. He had this massive display that made my one little book look terrible. It wasn’t the best con but I made tons of connections there, Eric one of them. We then both attended PennedCon last Steambornyear in St. Louis where he introduced me to a way to create audiobooks (which is why I know have my ya scifi series on audio. Thanks Eric!) Whenever I’ve asked him about the business side of things or writing in general, he’s been so accommodating and helpful.

Eric is super-talented and easily approachable. He’s a prolific writer and takes his craft seriously, often giving back to the writing community through panels and advice. If you’ve not tried his steampunk series Steamborn or his urban fantasy Vesik series, you need to give them a shot.

From his Amazon page:

Eric is a former bookseller, cellist, and comic seller currently living in Saint Louis, Missouri. A lifelong enthusiast of books, music, toys, and games, he discovered a love for the written word after being dragged to the library by his parents at a young age. When he is not writing, you can usually find him reading, gaming, or buried beneath a small avalanche of Transformers.

Greg is an author of science fiction, steampunk, and more. He’s an extremely busy person working as a teacher in China while writing book after book. His proficiency is something I admire!

Greg’s writing is accessible and fun. His characters often have an edge to them and are easy to get to know. His stories are entertaining and engaging.

Greg is a great guy and I first met him through a Facebook group we both belong to. I recall last summer being PrettyWaiterpart of a “30 Days, 30 Authors” event with him and getting to know him even better. Since then, we’ve both been in the On the Horizon bundle and both of us are working on a shared world project for 2019. On top of all that, he’s been traipsing around China teaching while working on new projects. His latest series is the Helena Brandywine Adventures featuring Helena Brandywine in a steampunk San Francisco. The first book, Pretty Waiter Girls, even climbing to Best Seller status not too long ago.

From Greg’s Amazon page:

I have led a varied life. 20 years traveling the world as a sailor, 10 years as a professional actor, 10 years in the manufacturing industry and 7 years as a teacher. Now I write and teach.

I grew up reading all the great science fiction. I hope to add my voice, in some small way, to the giants of this genre.
