Spotlight On Astounding Authors

Back again with one of my favorite features: Astounding Authors! Every week we get a number of requests to review novels from independent and up and coming authors. As much as we’d love to have the time to read them all, we just can’t. Instead, we will periodically feature a few aspiring authors with novels that look interesting. Check them out, buy their books. Hopefully you’ll give them a look. Then come back here to Astounding Books and let us know what you thought!

Storming: A Dieselpunk Adventure Novel by K. M. Weiland
See the book trailer here: YouTube

In the high-flying, heady world of 1920s aviation, brash pilot Robert “Hitch” Hitchcock’s life does a barrel roll when a young woman in an old-fashioned ball gown falls from the clouds smack in front of his biplane. As fearless as she is peculiar, Jael immediately proves she’s game for just about anything, including wing-walking in his struggling airshow. In return for her help, she demands a ride back home…to the sky.

Cocky, funny, and full of heart, Storming is a jaunty historical/dieselpunk mash-up that combines rip-roaring adventure and small-town charm with the thrill of futuristic possibilities.

The Crimson Claymore by Craig A. Price

The brave warrior Searon is haunted by the deaths of his wife and children at the hands of the savage reptilian draeyks, who are on a bloodthirsty rampage. He walks the land of Calthoria alone and thirsty for vengeance. He hunts the creatures down one by one, showing no mercy.

But Searon is a one-man army—and no match for the legions of murderous draeyks. Lucky for him, the powerful wizard Karceoles finds him during his travels and enlists Searon in this coming war. Karceoles believes Searon can unite the races to defeat the draeyks once and for all.

Searon discovers he can do more damage with Karceoles and a band of warriors they find along the way. But as the war rages in earnest, Searon must make a choice: Is it more important to destroy the draeyks at all costs, or will his quest for vengeance endanger the lives of his new brothers and sisters at arms?

  1. Thanks for sharing, Scott! You have piqued my curiosity. Debating whether I should buy any of these books. Pieces Like Pottery is different than your normal books. Did you read the book? I’m curious to know if you liked it before I get it.


    • No I have not read it. I get a lot of requests to review books but I simply don’t have enough time. The Astounding Authors posts highlight authors I simply don’t have time to review, but feel they should at least have a chance of getting promoted. If you do read it, let me know what you think. Thanks for reading Astounding Books!
