Kindar’s Cure Review and Blog Tour

It’s rare that I find a book based on description alone that interests me enough to want to review it her. Normally my blog focuses on theater, theater education and arts advocacy (as I’m sure many of you know) but while preparing my own, recently complete blog tour, I read the description to this book, Kindar’s Cure by Michelle Hauck.

High fantasy? I like high fantasy.

Female protagonist? We certainly don’t see enough of those these days.

Rulership is a matriarchy? Color me highly interested!

So I signed up to review the book and got a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

From the top I was almost put off. I was having trouble reading it on my kindle (I like a black background and the formatting for this required the white background). I also wasn’t too keen on the cover (not there there is anything wrong with it, it just…didn’t grab me.) But I had agreed to read this and I’m glad I did.

The story is as follows: Kindar is the middle child The second of three daughters of the queen. She is also beset with a constant cough that makes her ineligible to rule. But that isn’t a problem, she’s the second. But a series of circumstances put her in a fight for the throne from a series of  unseen forces.

Characters grow, change and evolve as they experience life outside the protected castle and learn around a rich setting and terrific world building.

For fans of fantasy or looking for a strong, well written female hero, I recommend KINDAR’S CURE.

KINDAR’S CURE can be purchased on Amazon for $6.95.

Author Interview: Samantha LaFantasie and the Addicted to heroines Blog Tour

Addicted to Heroines Blog Tour Interview with Samantha LaFantasie, Author of Heart Song

As many of you know, the lead roles in both of my published plays are girls. I think that the “Heroine” plays as big, if not bigger part, in modern mythology as the hero. And that’s why I support this upcoming blog tour and think you should too. To help promote it, I conducted a brief interview with my fellow Kansas writer, Samantha LaFantasie. Samantha is a fantastic writer and a board member of the Kansas Writer’s Association (of which I’m a proud member)
