An impossibly good book which is impossible to review – Forbidden by Tony Williams (With giveaway)

Please don’t ignore this post based on the cover of the book and summary.  The cover is so bad my husband was surprised I let the book in the house (and the man on the cover looks NOTHING like the character he’s intended to portray) and the summary is about the last 3rd of the book and doesn’t begin to cover the scope of this novel.  But I post it here so you’ll have a frame of reference before reading my thoughts.  Please note – there are spoilers in this review! On the heels of the slave uprising in Haiti, the French Empire is rocked by another slave revolt, this time in its colony Saint Helen. The upheaval pits the settlers and slaves against each other, and plunges the colony into a racial war that keeps blacks and whites divided long after Emancipation. Born into this polarized society where the colour of one’s skin determines one’s social status, Christian Joseph, a mulatto, finds favour because of his complexion and being brought up by priests. His world is turned upside down when he discovers that he was born out of wedlock and fathered by the insane son of a sugar planter. To his dismay, he further discovers that his father has died and willed his estate to Christian’s mother – a poor black village girl – to the disbelief and outrage of many in the community, including the priests. This forces Christian to return to the village of his birth to try and uncover the secrets of his past. Along the way he befriends a young woman named April and... read more

“Why Writing is a Form of Personal Therapy” Guest post by The Call of Agon author Dean F Wilson

THE LAST LINE. THE LAST WORDS. THE LAST CHANCE. Ifferon is one of the last in the bloodline of the dead god Telm, who mated with mortal women, and who imprisoned the Beast Agon in the Underworld. Armed with a connection to the estranged gods in the Overworld and a scroll bearing Telm’s powerful dying words, he is tasked with ensuring the god’s vital legacy: that Agon remain vanquished. Fear forces Ifferon to abandon his duty, but terror restores his quest when the forces of Agon find his hideaway in an isolated coastal monastery. Weighed down by the worries of the world, but lifted up by the companions he encounters along the way, Ifferon embarks on a journey that encompasses the struggles of many peoples, the siege of many lands, and discoveries that could bring hope to some—or doom to all. An epic fantasy set in a world replete with its own lands, races, languages, history and mythology. An immersive and lyrical tale with flawed and mysterious characters. A page-turner right up to the last page. Enter the world of Iraldas. Answer the Call of Agon. Buy Now @ Amazon Genre – Fantasy Rating – PG Why Writing is a Form of Personal Therapy by Dean F Wilson As a form of self-expression, writing is naturally a therapeutic medium, in much the same way recovering alcoholics might be encouraged to take up art to help them work through their issues. Writing, by its very nature, helps get whatever is in the mind, potentially eating away at the psyche, out onto the page, where it can be dealt with, even if... read more

You’re a What? A Drama-where? – Self-Identification with Esoteric Words

Moving to a new city has lead to the inevitable, what do you do, who do you work for game.  Around here, it seems to be less about status than it was in DC.  No one so far really cares who I know, but it does give a frame of reference for people to catalogue you by.  I get it.  It’s human nature to catalogue by gender, race, occupation.  As long as we don’t let it influence our level of respect for a person, it’s a very normal thing.  None-the-less, I find the hardest question to be “What do you do?” Well I’m an accountant.  Sometimes.  But I’m not doing book keeping any more.  Instead I spend that time writing.  Yes, I’m an author.  I have some self-published work and just signed with a publisher. I also do marketing with authors.  Oh what do I write?  Well… all different kinds of things.  You see my training is as a dramaturgue so I’ve always been interested in stories. Dramaturge No, it’s dramaturge. And then the inevitable happens.  They ask the dreaded question.  What’s a dramaturge? I struggle to find a concise answer that doesn’t sound pretentious.  I’ve settled on “Theatre historian and theorist”.  It’s not quite accurate but it does the job for what I mean anyway.  Unfortunately one of the major roles of a dramaturge is something it’s hard to tell people you do without sounding like a douch: “to ensure the quality of a theatre’s productions.” Every time this comes up I consider having a hand out of this manifesto written by Peter Lang and Bert Cardullo in 1995... read more
