We’re All In This Together Part 1

by dimensionaltales

So, this week’s blog post is going to be a little different from before. See, I may seem like a workaholic…well…actually I am a workaholic. A functioning workaholic but I’m also a good friend and a supportive one, too. I have a great number of friends that took the path of the arts like me and, like me, have – and, forevermore, will –  dedicated their lives to the craft. It is because of that I am going to dedicate this month to highlighting them. This week, I’m going to be starting with the writers:

_8480687Dylan Birtolo is “a fiction writer, a game designer, a computer programmer, a hardcore gamer, and a professional sword swinger.” Yes, I know that’s a mouthful but he has earned every title. I met the bloke at the Origin Game Fair three years and I’ve been hooked on his Sheynan Trilogy series from the start. He has worked on numerous other titles, too, so check out his site: http://www.dylanbirtolo.com/


I have also had the pleasure of being Dylan’s better half, Jaym Gates. A truly marvelous science fiction writer with the same energy and wit as me and her silly counterpart. Even better, her genius matches her wit and, moreover, the books are beautifully written and a complete and utter masterpiece. Don’t believe me…check it out for yourself on her website: http://jaymgates.com/


Kreshendo is one of my closest mates from high school who I had the privilege of graduating with. (266 for life!!!) Poetry is this man’s specialty and he knows how to bring out the rawest emotions out of his readers with precise and brilliant wordplay while exploring both universal and personal themes. If poetry is more your jam, might I suggest going to his website to get a good read: http://www.iamkreshendo.com/rs=w_223,h_223,cg_true

Switching from high school to college, allow me to introduce you to another poet, Dave Matthes. Now, what makes his poetry so unique? The saucy honesty about his inner demons and personal journey which is something many of his readers find refreshing. But, hey, don’t take my word for it, check out his site: https://davematthes.org/

book1_coverartMichael Zummo is the first writer from dwells in both of my community (LGBT and science fiction) and, because of it, got me reading a fantastic series revolving around the theme of identity and family (among other things). I got meet his bloke in Chicago at a comic book convention and been friends ever since. It also doesn’t hurt that he’s in the field of Game Design, like me. I implore you to check out his site: http://dmokrevival.com/


Finally, allow me to introduce you to the infamous pop psychologist, Travis Langley. He specializes in psychology (obviously) but fine tunes it towards various pop media such as Game of Thrones, Batman, Supernatural, Westworld. I am a really big fan of his work and always wait in anticipation for his next release. Check out his website to see his full list (trust me, there’s a lot): https://www.amazon.com/Travis-Langley/e/B006UXQOTC/

Please check out my friends and don’t forget to follow me on my social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads) which are on the right side of my web page. Also, I do love hearing suggestions of what books to read outside of my norm (Science fiction and fantasy) as I am a part of the Goodreads’ reading challenge for 2018.
