   Authors should expect crappy reviews. Well, I received one not long ago for my book “The Sword of Cullen.” It seems that someone in the blog site Afterword Reviews basically thought my book sucked because it didn’t world-building. For those of you not familiar with...

   Epic fantasy is boring, let's face it. Boring and overdone, not to mention utterly pretentious.  Same stale Tolkien formula...a Dark Lord has the land under his control and an unlikely hero sets out to undo him (or maybe her). I don't read any of that stuff because...
