Jason’s Authors You Need to Know – M.D. Parker

MDParkerToday’s author you need to know is M.D. Parker.

I first met M.D. Parker through mutual Facebook friends and was soon introduced to his writing. I read his collection The Ghosts Between and loved it! They are dark short stories (which I love!) and I knew I found a new author to follow. Not long after, I was invited to participate in the Trumpland charity anthology and we’ve stayed in touch ever since.

I can say that M.D. Parker is a tireless writer, always working on a new project and TheGhostslooking to release a horror novel in the future. He’s an advocate for other indie writers and his storytelling ability is top notch. If you like dark short stories, check out his collection The Ghosts Between or if you want to try some alternate future dystopian tales, check out the Trumpland anthology helmed by M.D. Parker.

From his Amazon page:

I am originally from the Oregon Coast but am currently living and writing full time on the road. My lovely wife and I (and our two furry companions) are writers, bloggers, and vagabonds. Currently, we share the crazy, and often confusing ride, that is our life on Twitter and Facebook. You can find my writing, in the form of short stories in various online magazines and my first published collection, “The Ghosts Between” was made available on Amazon. I am also a proud contributor and organizer of the multi-author charity project, “Trumpland: An Alternative History Of The Future.”

Currently finalizing a soon to be published sci-fi novella and working on my first full-length horror novel.

Jason’s Authors You Should Know – Leland Lydecker

Today I want to share about author Leland Lydecker. He’s an amazing writer (I think you’ll see this phrase a lot as I go through the list I’m sharing!) who writes sci-fi and according to his Amazon author page:

Leland Lydecker is a writer, professional driver, and former airline employee. No stranger to the ins and outs of government and corporate corruption, his preferred writing topics are crime, extra-judicial justice, and the future of society. His interests range from the natural world, to space exploration, to technology and medicine with an emphasis on genetic engineering, cybernetics, and artificial intelligence.

NecroticCityI believe I first met Leland in a large Facebook group we both belonged to. I then started a small Review Circle group for authors to help get honest reviews and he joined us and that’s where I became acquainted with his writing. I’m glad I did!

I’ve had the fortunate pleasure to read his novel Necrotic City and loved it! It was a well written tale of a future city where corruption reigns and one here will come to a decision to fight the corruption or become part of it. I can’t say enough good about this book and hope you check it out.

He and I are also contributors in the Trumpland anthology. His story, again set in a Trumplanddystopian world, was gripping and quite entertaining. No matter what your political leanings, the stories in the collection are well worth a read, and Leland’s is one I enjoyed quite a bit.

Check out his Amazon page and give him a follow. Better yet, try his book Necrotic City or the Trumpland anthology and see for yourself the stories he offers.
