Aidan asked me to do a guest blog on media impact in a fantasy setting and why I chose to use media in my novels. You can check it out here: http://aidanmoher.com/blog/2013/03/articles/fantasy-is-hardly-an-escape-from-reality-by-anthony-huso/
Some nice reviews came out recently, which means that a few folks liked or appreciated what I was trying to do. Black Gate read Black Bottle, check out the review here. Rising Shadow has a look here: I’m especially pleased when I can manage to reach folks from other countries (Finland in this case). And Bookgasm was exceptionally brave and tackled Black Bottle without having read The Last Page first (imagine that!)
Due to long hours at work, I’ve been mostly absent from my life in general. This ain’t the summer of love. It’s the summer of work. (Summer came early this year in Texas) Free time has been spent regrouping with my kids, watching a lot of films, and plotting another book.
So Wytche (archer in the MMO I play) just face-raped Jekel: another archer who has much nicer gear. I don’t know him personally, but I believe him to be a nice guy. Nevertheless, I relish being the underdog. It’s awesome to fight against superior powers and win. That’s what makes for great stories. Sometimes, however, the underdog doesn’t win.
… your life becomes hectic. Days blend into each other and your time is either spent working or sleeping and recuperating. This is my life right now, albeit for good reasons. Everyone who buys a copy of Skyrim will see a color flyer in the box for “Dishonored” which is our game. We’re all very proud of it and are excited about the process of development.
