There's an argument among Fantasy writers, and readers too, as to whether the rule "Write what you know" applies. I'm firmly of the "Write what you know" school; in my humble opinion, there is as much to be "known" about Fantasy as there is any other genre. My stories feature a lot of sword-fighting, camping and horse-riding, all of which I do indeed know enough about to write on.

ABOUT MY BOOKS:
Akurite Empire is a trilogy. While each book is a complete story in its own right, reading all three in sequence will be much more fun than reading one or two in random order.
Romancing The Sword is a quintet (quintology?) set five years prior to the events of Akurite Empire and covering much of the back story. It is a massive epic and intended to be read as such; the story-arcs overlap from one book to another.
Then there are the Sorcha stories... These are Fantasy Erotica, and as such feature much higher sexual content than my other books. They also cross over the plots of other books, presenting a different perspective on events as detailed in the main series.
The Lord Protector is a trilogy picking up directly after Akurite Empire.
Book one of any of these series is a good place to start.
Anonymous & Sifu are comedies, and though they feature the character of Sifu Dansac, both can be enjoyed individually. Sifu's Kung Fu Secrets, despite being written in the style of a demented Chinaman, contains real martial arts. Don't try this stuff, you'll hurt people. It's written in the style of a mad Chinaman so that no one will take it seriously.
I've been writing for about ten years; I have a large back-catalogue that will be presented here as I complete final editing of each book.
Although every effort is made to produce books clean of typos, some minor errors creep in. Anyone noticing such is invited to let me know so that it can be corrected. Any other feedback is also very welcome; readers can contact me via Facebook if they so desire.
I'm also offering a generous 25% on the affiliate program for all my books. Got a good publicity base on-line, but only a small catalogue of books to offer? Loot mine, I have over a dozen titles and more in progress.

Sorcha’s Story by Samuel Z. Jones- Book Review by Erin Miller
A raunchy tale of sex, sex, and more sex! It is a story about a woman named Sorcha who gets kidnapped and forced to be a sex slave. Sorcha grew up with a strict religious indoctrination and as such was denied any kind of sexual pleasure and denied the finding of herself since it was frowned upon in a country called Silveneir.
So this book is all about Sorcha’s journey and she is rather confused about her own sexuality or perhaps she is bisexual. I haven’t decided yet, though with her background I’m assuming she is confused. (NO I have nothing against bisexuality… morons!)
So yes, Sorcha is very confused due to the theocracy she has lived in. She is also extremely psychologically damaged but that is expected when someone is raised on a religious cult and then forced into slavery. Sorcha’s Story by Samuel Z. Jones has indeed a good amount of sex scenes but they all are part of the story. Normally, I shy away from this but I have written an erotica recently. Anyway, this book is definitely psychological and you see a woman’s journey from her original religious indoctrination to another religious cult- one that I noticed has a lot of Christian elements to it. If you read that bible you will know what I’m talking about when reading this delightful tale.
I loved the book. As I said I wasn’t too thrilled with the sex scenes but they were important to the story. Overall, I loved the story itself. It was well written and Mr, Jones has a knack for psychological strings in all his books. I think his books that I have read so far would entertain anyone! He better keep writing, that’s all I can say! I can’t wait to read the next book and yes my favorite character is still Meridian Charn!
I rate Samuel Z. Jones Sorcha’s Story a 9 out of 10!
Sorcha’s Revenge By Samuel Z. Jones- Book Review By Erin Miller
An escaped and conflicted sex slave and her own revenge. That is the story of Sorcha’s Revenge by Samuel Z. Jones.
Sorcha was kidnapped by the Naril Darians and forced to be a sex slave in a Naril Harem. Eventually, she escaped the Harem and becomes conflicted between the need to return home and the need to enjoy sexual freedom. After being traumatized in both her culture and as a sex slave it is pretty hard for this character to gain any semblence of normalcy back into her own life.
In this second story of the Sorcha Stories, the character Sorcha does get her own revenge a few times so to speak. She pushes Charn off an airship though she claims it is an accident. It most likely was an accident but underlying psychological pressures can also help to that factor since she was terrified of Charn. Charn was the one using tough love on Sorcha to in order to get her to stick up for herself. Still, it was rather amusing.
Let’s see here, other parts Sorcha had gotten her own revenge would be way too many spoilers. Really read the book! Still the story itself was interesting. It does loop over the events of Romancing The Sword of course. Samuel Z. Jones has a knack for doing that.
So let me rate this book a 9 out of 10.
Sorcha’s Revolt By Samuel Z. Jones- Book Review By Erin Miller
Sorcha is a confused and very conflicted sex slave that has found her freedom or somewhat of freedom. As with rape victims though the PTSD comes through and the need to act upon certain things in the past to relive it as most rape victims go through.
Anyway Sorcha’s Revolt by Samuel Z. Jones is a good book. Again it overlaps with his quintet Romancing The Sword. Sorcha gets reunited with her sister in this final installment of her tale. However, her sister only holds disdain for her since she got captured and forced to be in a harem and escaped, and is now sleeping with the man her sister was supposed to marry originally.
So this book is good. And well, I had a few laughs in some of the parts of it. I really can’t say much for the book, but I did enjoy reading it. It’s a bit short but nevertheless, really intriguing. In fact, I’m still in the process of convincing some friends of mine to read Romancing The Sword. So Sorcha’s Revolt by Samuel Z. Jones gets rated an 8 out of 10.
All in all this was a very well thought out series. I had some laughs and cringed at times but it was a great piece of fiction.
