I would like to give a shout-out to two talented authors
Kasper Beaumont & Michael Eging
Both are fantasy/sci-fi authors that I have come to know.
Here is a look at their most recent projects.
Kasper J. Beaumont was born and raised in Australia and lives a quiet life with the family in a seaside town. Combining a love of fantasy and a penchant for travel, Kasper started writing at the strong encouragement of friends and family. She enjoys watching readers become immersed in the magical world of Reloria.
“Kasper” is a pen name for a rather shy author who is happy to remain unnamed.
The Hunters of Reloria trilogy is about the magical world of Reloria where halflings and fairies share a bond. Dwarves, elves, knights, and dragons inhabit this country, but their world is about to be invaded by scaly lizardmen and giant Cyclops.
About Fandri’s Adventures… Running away with the elves was supposed to be fun. After Fandri kisses sweet halfling, Emina, he’s chased off the farm by his pitch-fork wielding father and a crazy goat. Accompanied by a fairy, he runs away with knights and elves in search of adventure. After he makes friends with a squire named Varl, they travel Reloria on an elven quest. Encountering magical spells, dragons, deadly pirates, and a fierce bear, Fandri gets a whole lot more adventure than he bargained for.
Fandri’s Adventures is the prequel and great introduction to the popular Hunters of Reloria fantasy trilogy.
When I asked Kasper if there was one thing she would like to tell her readers, she said “Don’t judge a dragon before you meet him.”
What’s next for Kasper?
In a typical Kasper style plot twist, we have rumours of angels and demons paranormal romance. Nothing Is confirmed at this stage, but keep an eye on Kasper’s website for updates.

Mike has wanted to write since he was very young. His earliest memories are of carrying a battered old notebook around full of illustrations and stories from which he would often transpose to white paper with his grandmother’s old typewriter.
While in college, he was inspired by professors and visiting writers to BYU. Literary classics such as Song of Roland and Inferno were often in his backpack, along with Russian textbooks. Chapter 4 of his book Annwyn’s Blood was written during this time as a short story.
Mike is also pursuing his interest in screenplays for feature films with his first option being a medieval epic, Song of Roland. He continues to focus on a variety of script/movie projects, most recently a horror thriller, Feast of Saint Nicholas, and a political thriller, The Prince.
He lives in Northern Virginia with his wife, Lori, and his wonderful children. He dreams of one day driving in his old Defender to Alaska with his kids and their dog, Marlin.
About The Silver Horn Echoes… As the Frank kingdom prepares for war, Roland, young heir to the Breton March, has been relegated to guard duty until a foreign emissary entrusts him with vital word of a new threat to the kingdom. Now Roland must embark on a risky journey to save all he loves from swift destruction.
And yet, while facing down merciless enemies, he must also reveal the hand of a murderer who even now stalks the halls of power and threatens to pull apart a kingdom that has just been reborn under the greatest of medieval kings, the remarkable Charlemagne.
For Roland to become the champion his kingdom needs, he must survive war, intrigue and betrayal. The Silver Horn Echoes pays homage to “La Chanson de Roland” by revisiting an age of intrigue and honor, and a fateful decision in the shadows of a lonely mountain pass —Roncevaux!
When I asked Michael if there was anything he wanted to tell his readers he explained that the Silver Horn Echoes is based on the award winning feature film screenplay, Song of Roland. Both pieces of work are inspired by La Chanson de Roland, or Song of Roland, the medieval epic. The screenplay was written first and was my first Hollywood optioned work.
What’s next? Steve, co-author of several of Michael’s book, and Michael have a number of other projects in the works, including a horror project entitled Feast of St. Nicholas. In addition, they are working on the sequel to Annwyn’s Blood, their first fantasy novel, entitled Sails of Shadow.
