Every few years I reread the LOTR books, and each time I finish them, I'm sad that I can't live there. What would I do?

Roger Eschbacher Hey, folks! Amazon gave GHOST STAR a Science Fiction & Fantasy #KindleBookDeal for the month of August. Yay! That means if you're looking for a fun, action-packed #SciFi read (or know someone who is) you can get my book for $0.99! https://amzn.to/3k0ZTCC #ghoststar #fun!

In other news... Elvenking, the third book in the Leonard the Great series, should be out soon. We're talking end of August/sometime in September soon. Thank you for your patience!

It does! I'll be interested in learning what you think about "Children of Hurin." As you'll see if you take a look at my review, I had some, uh, "problems" with it.

Thanks, Melissa! If you liked the Hobbit, I think you'll enjoy, LOTR. It's a challenging read, but very satisfying.
