Latest News & Blog Posts From James E. Wisher
So I haven’t posted about the anime I’ve been watching in a while and the reason for that is I haven’t found anything I enjoyed enough to share, until now. I just finished a show called Chaos Dragon that had one of the cooler magical abilities I’ve seen. The hero has the power to sacrifice someone he cares about in exchange for the ability to kill any one person no matter where they are. I’d never seen anything quite like that and thought it was a really interesting way to keep a major power from getting out of control, especially when combined with a goodnatured hero. If you haven’t seen Chaos Dragon I recommend you check it out.
On another note as I’m sure I’ve made clear I really enjoy fantasy and scifi, but sometimes I need a break. Last week I finished The Killing Floor by Lee Child. It’s the first Jack Reacher Novel and it’s really good. Lot’s of action and a cool premise, one I’d never heard of. If you’re looking for a change of pace you might want to give it read. Just click on the title above. The link is on my affiliate account so I’ll get a small percentage of the sale price if you use it, but it won’t cost you any extra.
As always, thanks for reading.
It’s been a while since I posted anything so I wanted to let you guys know how things were going. The launch for The Impossible Wizard is still going good, thanks everyone for your support. Book 2, The Awakening, will be out in a couple weeks. Also, I heard from my audiobook publisher and they’ve announced a firm release date for Harvest of Souls, May, 23 is the day.
Now for the great cause I mentioned. Mark Dawson is a thriller author and a friend of his family is fighting cancer. In order to help raise money for her treatment he’s written a story, all of the proceeds from which will go to help fund her treatment. If you’d like to help out you can preorder the book here. You’ll get a great thriller and help out an amazing cause. Win Win.
Thanks very much. Until next.
I know it’s been a while since I posted, but I’ve been super busy getting ready for the the launch of the first book of my new urban fantasy series, The Impossible Wizard. Which, by the way, will be live on Monday the 24th. There, that takes care of my shameless plug for the day. Now on to what you really want to know. I got a note from my Audiobook publisher and they’re looking at a release date of 5/23 for Harvest of Souls. That’s tentative so I’ll post again when I’m certain, but so far they’ve been really good about hitting their target date.
Also, for those who are curious, I just finished watching Fate Stay Night, Unlimited Bladeworks and it was great. Super high production values, darker story than the original, all in all an outstanding story. If you haven’t tried it I highly recommend you do.
As always, thanks for reading.
I know it’s been a while since I posted anything on here and I wanted to say I’m sorry about that, but to make up for it I have something cool to share with you guys. Book 1 of my new urban fantasy series is finally up for preorder on amazon and if you’d like to take a sneak peak you can download the first 6,000 words of chapter 1 for free.
It’s a fun story and I really enjoyed writing it. I think you’ll find it’s a little different than most urban fantasy stories since it’s written in third person PoV from multiple characters. Whether that turns out to be a good thing or not only time will tell.
Enough of my jabbering. Here are the links.
I haven’t posted in a while so I thought I’d share a new anime I found that I’m quite enjoying. It’s called the Heroic Legend of Arslan. It’s a fantasy adventure with a historical feel. I’m only ten episodes in but so far I’ve found both the story and animation to be very good. I think it’s something you guys would like.
Also, I wanted to let everybody know that Raging Sea and Trembling Earth is out in audio if anyone wants to check it out.
Thanks for reading and until next time.
I wanted to let everyone know that book 1 of my fantasy trilogy, Darkness Rising, is available along with over 100 other ebooks at becca hamilton books, for the next three days. If you’re looking for some good reads you should check it out. Just click here
Thanks everyone for your support.
Some super cool news to share. My first audiobook is out. Darkness Rising is now available in audio. You can either get it from Audible or add the whispersync to your ebook purchase for only $2.99 I hope anyone that’s into audio will check it out.
I’ve been reading Pathfinder Tales novels for a while, but I let a pretty good stack of them build up. I’m almost finished with Stalking the Beast by Howard Andrew Jones. It’s the second book he’s written in the Pathfinder world. I recommend both books, though you don’t need to have read the first one to understand what’s happening in the second.
Stalking the Beast is about a group of hunters trying to chase down a monster that’s been killing people in the local communities. I don’t want to give up too much of the plot, but let’s just say the mission doesn’t go smoothly.
If you haven’t had a chance to read the Pathfinder books I’d recommend them. I’ve enjoyed the vast majority of them that I’ve read.
One last point of business. My novelette, Lizzy’s First Bearer, is available @Instafreebie. If you haven’t read it yet you can check it out for free here. https://www.instafreebie.com/free/fHlHc
Until next time,
Just a quick post today to let everyone know the audiobook version of my book Darkness Rising will be out on January 17th. Super excited and I hope everyone interested in that format will check it out.
Another small item is that my stand alone novel, The Squire, is on sale for $.99 until Tuesday, January 10th. If you haven’t read it yet now’s a great chance.
Last time I talked about one of the things that inspired me, Anime. Today I want to talk about another thing that inspires me, Star Wars. I thought it was a good topic since the new movie just came out last week.
I love Star Wars. Not everything about it, but most things. One of the things I like best, from a business perspective, is the way they grow their franchise by telling stories outside the main saga, Like Rogue One, for example. My favorite example of this is the Clone Wars TV series. I suspect the writers could have told stories set during the galaxy wide war forever.
The reason I bring this up is because I have something similar planned for 2018, though on a much smaller scale of course. I want to create a world at war then tell a variety of stories within that backdrop. Big stories and small stories. Stories about heroes and villains and everyday people just trying to survive.
That’s the plan anyway. The way my brain works I’ll probably get distracted by a shiny new idea between now and then. We’ll see.
Until next time, thanks for reading.
