The Reader's Respite

Michelle has posted a portion of one of my writing/publishing published articles on her site today.

An excerpt follows: "The road to publication has been a nightmare because of the time and money wasted while I learned the business. I wish I could say that there is lots of help out there for the newbie’s, but actually, the reverse is true. You are prey swimming in the shark’s pool—take heed. Believe nobody, and get everything in writing, research, research, and research."

If you missed it, her review of my novel yesterday is the next in queue.

Book Review, Axe of Iron: The Settlers

Michelle, of A Reader's Respite blog, posted a review of my novel, Axe of Iron: The Settlers on her site.

Here's an excerpt of what she had to say: "Hunsinger's knowledge of Norse history is extensive and the novel is rich in details describing the Northmen's customs and culture. Thankfully, however, this does not bog down the actual story. The characters are strong and three-dimensional: the struggles of leader Halfdan Ingolfsson are engrossing as he and his fellow settlers strive to carve a new life for themselves in this new and hostile land."
