What motivated you to become an indie author?
Brandon Grant, I saw that he started being a self-published author at the age of 13, so I thought I might have a go at writing books also, back in March of 2013 when I was 16 years old.

Smashwords book reviews by Justyn Simon

  • The Creatures that History Forgot on June 01, 2013

    This was an a somewhat interesting book, the cover art looked cool but the book wasn't. Anyway I don't mean to be a This was an a somewhat interesting book, the cover art looked cool but the book wasn't. Anyway I don't mean to be a grammar Nazi, but my eyes were hurt by how many times sentences started with I. It explains later on that the main charter speaks in broken English, the ending makes this story a lengthy fable, and the way the creature history forgot talks to people makes this seem like a book for 8-10 year old children. Also, I would have given this book three stars but because the cover was cool, and the author has a nice bio, it ended up as 4.
  • The Quest for Elena the Fair on Dec. 30, 2013

    This was an interesting short story. It seemed like the book would have been better if it was longer. I would recommend the book to people who like short adventures in the form of a poem.
  • Legon Awakening: Book One in the Legon Series on July 14, 2014

    This was a somewhat interesting read, it was an Eragon type book where the main character is a butcher's son, and has an epileptic sister, Legon also has an awesome friend, and a resourceful mentor. So anyways, this book follows the the hero's journey cliche very well, which is a cliche I like in books. There were some grammar errors, but they were somewhat funny, as there was a person who was eaten, then was totally ok in the next sentence that mentioned them. In the Legon universe dragons are magic users that have ascended, there are evil magical beans called Iumenta that are the elves greatest enemy, and an evil queen rules the known land. I would recommend the book to people that like the eragon book series, dragons, elves, magic, and/or fantasy adventure
  • The Thirteenth Unicorn on Aug. 20, 2014

    This was one interesting book. After finding a secret entrance to a place called Camelot. There seems to be Pop culture references from things like Doctor Who, The Hobbit, and the wizard of Oz. A better name for this book should have been something to do with the Snakers, who are evil Snake Men , as there is more about them then a witch who need 13 unicorn horns to free an evil wizard. Both the witch and the Snakers have an illusion of being powerful, but are easily destroyed. Near the end there was this one point where it got confusing. I thought it was interesting how they had a multiverse thing going on. I would recommend the book to people that like fantasy, alternate universes, and or mythical creatures
