Authorfest t is NOV. 10th at Powell's and what else?

Hi all,

Big news, for me at least, I finished the first of the publisher edits of BLOOD DIVIDED and handed it in the beginning of this month. She confirmed she has it and is working on it soon. Next step will be a more detailed line edit. Polish it up for print.

Since finishing that, I took some time off from writing and editing. Like a week...and reworked my antiquated resume. And sent a proposal to Dark Horse comics for some CASTLE BROSKULL related projects.

I finished the Buffy rewatch and started rewatching the last season of ANGEL. It makes sense, because you follow Spike's story over to ANGEL.

I've been playing a little World of Warcraft late at night. Man, it's amazing all I remembered and all I forgot. Like I remember some of the beginning stuff so well...but I forgot the middle stuff. For example, levels 1-20, I kinda-totally that content. But after that? I was like, I forget, where do I go? What do I do? What levels are the dungeons? How do I get from here to there...LOL!

It's fun seeing all returning players. We have all aged 10+ years. So the names of characters and guilds sometimes reflect it. It can be sad and funny at the same time. 

Here I am from like a week or so ago...around level 16. I'll hit 20 soon on this one.

So now that I'm waiting for the publisher again, I have a choice. Got back to writing the sequel of The Lifeblood of Ill-fated Women, or edit book three of the Soul War series (so that I am ready to hand that to the publisher in 2020).

Not sure yet.

Until then, I am focused on rocking this years AUTHORFEST at Powell's Books, on Nov. 10th starting 4pm. I plan to sign books and represent book my writing and my CASTLE BROSKULL endeavors. So I will probably (more than probably) be wearing a fresh BROSKULL shirt.

I often wonder if it is time to stop blogging. But I will keep it going. Maybe once a month, like this.

Thanks all!

Updates. Authorfest. Broskull. World of Warcraft.

Hi all,

I have been working so hard this Summer. And yes. The old blog gets forgotten in the mix.

Most people follow my writing updates on FB anyway...but hey...let's do this!

I'm finishing up the first publisher edit of BLOOD DIVIDED, book two in the Soul War. Sequel to SOUL BORN. It's really looking good. Very excited about its 2020 release. It will finally see the respect it deserves.

Writing wise, I'm not writing anything new at the moment. I'm editing my work, and doing an edit job for another author. I'm seeking some content editing jobs too.

CASTLE BROSKULL logo


A lot of my time is spent branding and promoting CASTLE BROSKULL...which is doing amazing. It has turned out to be a very successful business. The more time I put in, the more I get back. It works that well.

I have lots of commissions in right now. New logos. New shirts. And more things to come.

I will be at a toy show in late Sept. And I will have signed books there. I will also be signing at this years Authorfest in Powells. I do this every year. It's a fun event and a great learning exp.

This year, at Powells, I will represent both my writing and Castle Broskull. So I'll bring at least one or two cool projects with me to show off.

What have I been doing for fun? Well, I WAS between games. I wasn't sure what to play, so I went and started up a new game of Morrowind. I always pledged I would return to it. But starting new...wow... Lots of old memories from that game. Now, the graphics are tough to deal with and some of the fighting controls are bad. This is NOT Skyrim! lol. But I have managed to go further in the game then ever before.

That being said. I was not feeling it. So I ended up not playing anything for a while. Rewatched Buffy. Again. Like again-again. (maybe like my 7th or 8th rewatch since release...OK!)


I was still wanting to game again...so...YES...I picked up World of Warcraft Classic.

Way back in the day, I played WoW. I played for maybe 2-3 years when it first came out. For a while I was a casual player. I played Alliance as a Priest. I enjoyed healing in UBRS once or twice a week. It was fun.

Then Burning Crusade came out and I went Horde. No turning back. LOL. I was a Blood Elf Paladin who healed. I fell into one guild that was doing great and that one splintered off into another guild that became one of the best on the server. I saw it all. Every raid. All the end game content. It was amazing! I was really enjoying playing, but it got in the way of writing and I stopped. That was like 11 years ago.

I kept in contact with some of my WoW friends and they just started playing WoW classic so I figured it might be fun. I signed in and...yes...it's amazing.

Feels like the old days. 10-12 years have passed, but my old WoW buddies are there and its like no time has passed at all. And they are excited to be playing with me again. How cool is that?

(well, not like no time has passed. I mean I do have to level up...and I am so slow at that)(and my back hurts. lol)

How much will I play? Just a few hours a week. Same as I would my XBox, if I had a game I was interested in there. No more. Not like before... lol...

Never played a Warlock before. And if I can't play a Pally...



Thanks all!

Kevin James Breaux New Reviews and Updates

Hi all!

Wanted to post some new reviews of ONE SMOKING HOT FAIRY TAIL that popped up on Amazon lately. 

Please post your reviews of all my novels. Need to see more reviews! Love the feedback!

First up. What have I been doing? Well, I started by up on the sequel to THE LIFEBLOOD OF ILL-FATED WOMEN. I hope to finish writing that in 2019 and release it 2020. I'm also waiting for the BLOOD DIVIDED edits from SOUL BORN's publisher.

Been focused on Castle Broskull. I know, it's not writing. BUT It is my other artistic outlet. I really enjoy customizing vintage toys! It's tons of fun and the collectors love my work. I did a books signing and a toy show in one weekend at the end of April. It was a crazy busy weekend, following and insanely busy time. I did not get to promote it much....not here at least...

It was a lot of work and turned out to be tons of fun. And...imagine this...I signed more books at the toy show then the book store! The toy show was flooded with people like me: fans of fantasy and 80s toys and games. People who like to dive deep into their genres. 

What a great time!!! And I will be doing more of these shows. I have to plan them all for 2020. I hope at least one or two more this year.

Until then, on to the reviews....

Review #1

Sabrina London was on top of the world until a video exposes her committing a crime. She loses so much but now she is working her way back up. She meets the mysterious Alexander who turn out to be an ancient immortal shaman. He is well into his plans of producing a drug that will apparently heal the epidemic plaguing the world. There is only one problem. The drug, known as dust, has a side effect of leaving the taker susceptible to mind control. Alexander wants to control the country. However, his drug needs a major supply of fairy wings, something Sabrina has. Alexander plans on taking hers by any mean possible.

There is one intriguing tale. It starts with action and never stops. Along with Sabrina, we meet a variety of paranormal individuals - her bodyguard, Mira, a water spirit, her best friend, a mummy and her lover, a vampire. Then we add in one human. With Mira captured, the four work together to keep Sabrina and her wings safe. I found the tale incredibly captivating and I did not want to put down the book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I am sure it will be just as amazing as One Smoking Hot Fairy Tail. Pick it up. You will be glad you did.
 


And from Amazon.de...

Review #2

Funny, sexy, outspoken! Fast paced urban fantasy for adults that doesn’t leave anything to be desired (and doesn’t skimp on skin either), with edgy, easy-to-like characters, burning action, and interesting twists.

Sabrina isn’t just a rich party girl and scandal-magnet of modern day America, she is also a fairy. And she is in great danger, because someone is targeting fairies and he stops at nothing. Together with her friends – Cade, a just recently roused vampire and former army general; Moselle, a beautiful Egyptian princess who is also an ancient mummy; and Moselle’s human boyfriend Jackson who can barely cope with the world he has gotten himself into – Sabrina must quickly find out who is behind this scheme before it is too late for her best friend Mira. And for herself.

Vampires, elementals, mummies, werewolves. The all exist but they are not nice and fluffy, they are dark and they have teeth and forbidding powers. A fun adventure that leaves you wanting more. I’m off reading book two now!



Thanks all!
