Hi, Lou Hoffmann here, very happy to be visiting The Novel Approach, celebrating the recent release of Key of Behliseth, the first novel in The Sun Child Chronicles. (Thank you TNA!)I planned to blog about ‘world building’ in a fantasy novel—you know, what goes into creating a world that works differently than our own everyday reality. But, as I began to laboriously catalog the steps in the process, I was tapped on the shoulder, and someone behind me cleared his throat.

I turned, and there stood Thurlock Ol’Karrigh, the wizard who meets up with Lucky, the MC in Key of Behliseth. Now, let me tell you, it is an alarming feeling to find a 1,000 year old wizard towering over you with a scowl on his face. Nevertheless, I attempted to be polite. Continue reading

Here’s A Sneak Peek At The Coming Week And An Intro To Our Newest Reviewer

Happy Sunday, everyone, I hope you’ve all had a fantastic week! We’ve just closed out another great seven days of author visits, giveaways and reviews. And, guess what? Well, we’ve got an equally outstanding week just waiting to get underway.

In addition to all the that, I’m also thrilled to introduce the newest member of our review team, Taz! He comes to us with plenty of reviewing experience, so without further ado, here’s the man himself:

Taz_TNATaz: The largest carnivorous marsupial in the world is characterized by its stocky and muscular build, broad head, pungent odor, extremely loud and disturbing screech, keen sense of smell and apparent ferocity when feeding.

I can’t get enough of ‘em. Oh, but I don’t have a pungent odor…or so I’m told.

Having met him in person, I can vouch for him…he does not stink in any way!

Now, have a look at what’s in store, and be sure to stay tuned for more reviews and the chance to win some great prizes.
