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.
on July 19, 2012 :
Gaes of the Red Witch by Samuel Z. Jones is an interesting fantasy book. I have originally read Mr. Jones Akurite Empire trilogy and then his Romancing the Sword quintet. It is amazing to me that just when you think he has used up all his gems in writing fantasy he comes striking back with yet another amazing book! There is talent in this man’s story telling and really, I’ve been writing so many reviews for this author, I really shouldn’t need to point this out.
In Gaes of the Red Witch, the allies that Sabra have left behind are seeking a way to bring order to the lands when in reality they wanted nothing more than to join Sabra on her quest against the Psarrion. The blood witch Shakasha is in this story and is insane, though really that is an understatement. Sabra had originally laid gaes on the witch so Shakasha couldn’t become a lord over people. Now Shakasha is thirsty for a blood bath summoning legions of undead and other creatures to fight in her wake.
I also found it interesting when a certain character in this book made an appearance was turned into a zombie. Zombie stories like paranormal romance have been way overdone, but in this book it was entertaining. This book is highly recommended to anyone who reads fantasy. Grant it, there were a few parts I was like “Really?” but still the book itself is a great read.
