When I started out as a writer, I didn't read much, and it showed in my writing. My greatest improvement as a writer came once I started reading voraciously. Reading gave me a feel for the flow of good writing, for the nuances of character development and the structure of a good plot.

It also gave me the confidence that I could do this too. The more I read, the more I wanted to contribute my own stories that readers could enjoy just as much.

Reading is also great for generating ideas. You might decide you want to improve on something that disappointed you in a book. Or you might just gather bits and pieces from everything you read and combine them to make your own unique world, story, and characters.(less)

The new revision for Empire of Chains is going well.

I’m currently a few chapters into my major revision of Empire of Chains, and I’m enjoying the process. It’s been fun to revisit these characters and take the opportunity to make an even better book for readers.


This new version will be even more action-packed than the original, and I do love writing action scenes. I’m also really excited to get to the reworked ending I have in mind. Thankfully, it

A great conclusion to a great trilogy. This one was an exciting read, and the epilogue did a great job of wrapping everything up and making it all make sense. The only issue I had with it was trying to remember some of the characters and plot details ...more

This was a good read, but I thought it took a while for the story to get going. It felt like it was definitely the first part of the next story arc in the series. The end of the book was exciting and action-packed, however, as I've come to expect fro ...more

For the first 25% of this one, I didn't think I was going to like it as much as the first two. Then the rest of the book happened. This one was full of intrigue and revelations, and now I'm dying to read the next book.

Another fun read from Holmberg. His books are among my favorite fantasy comfort reads. They aren't the kind of books that do anything revolutionary within the genre, and that's part of what makes them so fun. They tell fast-paced stories that keep me ...more

I liked the first two books, but not enough to give them five stars. I'm happy to say that I can do it for this one. The first two books were good, but they did feel a bit like setup. At this point, the grander plot is starting to appear, at least a ...more
