Book Read and Reviewed today:

Writing Fantasy HeroesWriting Fantasy Heroes by Jason M. Waltz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! This book was better, and different, than expected. It isn’t just another book on craft. It’s barely even a reference guide. It has essays packed with valuable tips written by authors I love. Sure, a few of these were not in my niche, but the ones that were blew my mind. I could not recommend this enough.

This book does require the reader to think for himself/herself. It isn’t another “do this, not that, and do it this way” book. It’s a book that feels more like a conversation, like watching a podcast. The reader will need to figure out how to apply what is learned. If you read this, be prepared to ponder. I suppose “The Philosophy Behind Writing Fantasy Heroes” was considered as an alternative title.
