Fantasy-Faction.com Staff Writer Kevin James Breaux

Big News! I'm now a staff writer at Fantasy-Faction.com! Cool, right? Now you can read an article from me once a month around the third week. Fantasy-Faction is a fun site, and I'm really happy to have his opportunity. Great people in the forums there, and I love the discussions. Marc has a real gem in his hands. You can follow the site on twitter here. @FantasyFaction

My first article is a look back at one of the building blocks that has made me a big fantasy fan, and fantasy author. Check out my post on Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance.

On a side note this past week saw the appearance of a 4/5 and a 5/5 review of SOUL BORN. You can read them on my Soul Born blog site http://www.soulborn.net/. Or search for my novels on goodreads.com Next fall I plan to open a full site devoted to the Soul Born Saga. I will keep everyone posted.

Otherwise I'm busy with novel submissions and I'm trying to decide which anthologies to submit to, so if you are an editor and would like a story from me, please contact me soon.

Thanks all,

Kevin James Breaux

Soul Born and Writing Updates with a 5 star review!

First, I want to thank everyone who entered my give-away at Goodreads.com. When it ended, over 1,300 people had entered to win a copy of SOUL BORN. Not bad for a debut author at a small press publisher, right?
1,317 people

This week SOUL BORN should be popping up as an e-book at Amazon.com. I will announce it on twitter and facebook when I see it. Also, over the past few days two new reviews arrived at Goodreads.com. A 4/5 appeared over the weekend, which the reviewer plans to post on their blog soon and a 5/5 from The Caffeinated Diva Reads...which can be read here. http://thecaffeinateddivareads.multifacetedmama.com/?p=1738

Lastly, I would like to announce that I will be writing a monthly article for Fantasy-Faction.com soon. Lets see how it goes with my schedule. I hope it works out!

Thanks all,

Kevin James Breaux

Awards - Tis the Season! Thanks All!

Growing up I always wanted to win a trophy. Who didn't?  It wasn't until I was 29 years old that I was rewarded with two trophies at a martial arts tournament, one for a 2nd and another for a 3rd place win.  Couple years later as my buddies and I were having XBox LAN party tournaments, I went and had custom trophies made for the winners. It's always nice to be rewarded for your hard work.  Even if it's slamming your friends in the face with rockets. Or in my case, having Chris gun me down over and over and over again.

This week I received two awards from entries in the Preditors and Editors (P&E) Reader's Poll

My novel SOUL BORN won best SF/F novel for 2010.

And my short story ENDING SUMMER NIGHTS came in Top Ten (9th place) in the horror short story category.

Again, I want to thank everyone who voted for me. I am especially proud of the Bram Stoker Award recommendation I received this year too. Maybe next year I will get a nomination! 

Thanks all,

Kevin James Breaux
