JordanCon 2017

I thoroughly enjoyed my first JordanCon convention. The environment and every aspect of the event was spectacular. I met some amazing creatives, cosplayers, and readers. I hope that they enjoy their visit to the land of Faélondul and meet me again to explore more of my fantastical worlds.

The JordanCon staff was exceptional and the atmosphere was welcoming. I will definitely be there for as long as they continue!

Just a few of the numerous photos I captured at the event. Many more are posted on the JordanCon FB page.

Lezayen, my seven-foot panther hybrid from Adnamax found a few admirers. Well, I can’t blame them. He is quite irresistible.

Flowery Writing – is it Dead?

This was a very interesting post that I truly enjoyed. I have dealt with this issue and continue to craft my novels from my heart. My particular style of prose might not appeal to the new-age, instant gratification reader, but my stories have depth, as do the characters. Faelondul Awaits!

Writers 'n' Bloggers

Has it ever occurred to you, that as we lean more and more towards ‘simple and sweet’, we are losing a once much loved writing style?

Yes, flowery writing is dead.

Or rather, it’s dying…

Time-honoured classics, the likes of which famed authors such as Charles Dickens and Emily Bronte have penned, will soon be remembered no more.

How can they be when consumers and writers alike are taking the easy route?

People are striving both to read and write easily consumable media, as opposed to brewing up heavy literature and weighty poems

This, for the most part, is due to laziness.

Readers are strapped for time and can’t be bothered to switch on their brain – especially after laborious work.

As for writers?

Well, we need to pay the bills don’t we?

If the market calls for easy-to-read material, surely we must step in and provide!

It’s not as…

Faélondul Awaits!

The Rise of Nazil – .99 Book Promotion

In celebration of the Brain to Books Cyber Convention, I have discounted my award-winning Epic Fantasy novel The Rise of Nazil to only 0.99 for a limited time!

coverImmerse yourself in the fantastical land of Faélondul and allow the multilayered characters, dense and intriguing plot, Faélondulian terminology, scenery, and wonderment transport you from the everyday to an Epic world that you will never desire to leave!

The Rise of Nazil is “the BEST read of 2015.” It is…

“Crafted like a mound of gems picked from the best in genre, The Rise of Nazil makes for a scintillating read. Boding well for future releases from Aaron-Michael Hall, it is recommended without reservation.”

“This is a complex plot at its best. The character development is perfect.”
-Rabia Tanveer, Readers’ Favorite

The Rise of Nazil is an epic fantasy that should be shelved next to the works of R.A. Salvatore and J. R. R. Tolkien. Aaron-Michael Hall is a creative world builder with breath-taking deities and a most unique mythos. With sweeping love stories, intense battles, theological struggles, and modern sociological themes, this book was the best read of 2015.”

“Faélondul is a world imbued with good and evil, that permeates through a richly layered social strata, but few facets of human nature have changed, and he captures them all. Desire, ambition, greed, each masterfully manifested in a host of vividly rendered characters that make for a riveting read whilst neatly sidestepping the pitfalls of predictability.”

The Rise of the Nazil is a complex work, combining the cadence and richness of “old school” fantasy with the violence, intricate treacheries and modern sensibilities of The Game of Thrones. If Michael Moorcock were writing for today’s audience, he might well have written this kind of work.”

Pure escapism is the order of play here and it’s a strong debut which begins at a blistering pace and continues throughout as Aaron-Michael Hall builds a convincing and beguiling world which is both evocative and easy to imagine. Breathing originality into the genre this has to be one of my favourite Fantasy reads in a long while.”

“Author Aaron-Michael Hall is the master of the slow burn—he does not dazzle you with quick resolutions or flashy scenes. Instead, he deftly builds up the plot and the sense of suspense one page at a time. And this is one intricate, richly detailed plot: the multitude of characters unleash upon your senses some sort of a powerful eureka once you reach that point in the book where the story climbs its inevitable climax, and you’re left sitting there with your mouth hanging open, unable to look away.”

“It’s getting harder and harder to separate the wheat from the chaff in this genre, but thankfully The Rise Of Nazil stands head and shoulders above much of the competition. From plot to characters it is a vibrant fantasy that really captures the imagination from start to end.”

Dozens of Amazon reviewers cannot be wrong! However, you can decide for yourself and at a significant discount! What are you waiting for? Faélondul Awaits!
