Book Review: Golden Son

Golden Son by Pierce Brown

I love reading Pierce Brown. A writer could learn a lot reading his work.

Golden Son is Book II of the Red Rising series and it is terrific. I don’t typically seek out a series to read, nor do I typically seek out Science Fiction. I’m more of a one-book, one-story kind of guy, but occasionally I come across a series that I really enjoy. The Red Rising series is one of those.

I rate it 24 out of a possible 25. (see My Book Reviews for rating explanation)

Part III – How to Submit

Okay, so if you’re on part III, you’ve perfected your manuscript (or at the very least, you know you need to), you’ve gathered a list of targeted publications, and you’re itching to get your work out there. That’s awesome, but don’t blow it right at the finish line. You’ve got one more thing to get right.

Your submission plan.

Book Review: The Dead Lands

Book Review: The Dead Lands

I finished The Dead Lands last night. If asked to summarize my reaction, I’d say it was okay. Not bad, but not great.

I rate it 16 out of a possible 25. (see My Book Reviews for rating explanation)

The premise: The Dead Lands is a post-apocalyptic thriller where the remnants of the human race live in a city (appropriately called The Sanctuary) surrounded by a massive wall.
