Hi Tucker, Haha, I guess you don't read much epic fantasy ;-).
Moon Deeds is really epic fantasy in science-fiction clothing, and the Star Children Saga series is one long story, broken up arbitrarily to bind it into books. I almost published Part One as Book One, but I tested it with a few people that way, and the response was much better when I ended it where I did. Btw, there's about 50 pages of front and back matter (TOC, Glossary, Illustrations), so the story itself is about 545 pages. The total word count is around 160K. Surely you own some Harry Potter, or the Eragon trilogy? George RR Martin? Brandon Sanderson? Anyway, if it's not for you, DNF is always an option. Fantasy fans relish long books; other people, not so much. Thanks for asking!!(less)

Hi Rafa,
The thing that started it all was a joke gift I received from my brother one Christmas of a deed to a lunar land parcel, complete with the property coordinates, a moon map, and lunar citizenship papers. I considered the possibility that the deed was legitimate, and imagined a scenario where it was passed down to future generations and became vitally important. I tried to imagine an extreme situation where the deed would really REALLY help my descendants. That is how the idea for Moon Deeds was born. :-)(less)

How women are treated

For all of you who are upset about how women are treated in Moon Deeds and Light Fighters. Yes. Exactly. It's supposed to make you upset. It's part of the dystopia.

I am happy to talk at length about this topic, but for now I will leave it at that. Just be aware that I am a woman and a feminist and write from experience.

Heliotrope by Palmer Pickering
"4.5 Rounded up

Heliotrope was a slow burn, epic, fantasy adventure that felt like I was playing an old familiar fantasy game, and I absolutely adored it.

Heliotrope by Palmer Pickering
Hi Serena, Ummm, probably 13-15+? There is a good bit of blood and gore (sword fighting and assassin-ish killings and such, with some gory details), minimal cursing, a little alcohol, but no explicit sexual content or deeply disturbing content. Prett See Full Answer
