Free Fiction Tuesday (plus, support starving artists at no cost to you!)


So, I’m back after a 1 month hiatus at my blog. Yes, I have a free book this week! But also, I wanted to tell you how you can support writers in a huge way… I use Amazon Affiliate links on all of my reviews, etc. They are neat little things that give promoters a little commission. Christmas is huge for us. If you plan to do some shopping on Amazon, would you click my below link before you do your holiday shopping (even if you’ve gotten my free book before?)

New Issue of Lorehaven


I want to draw attention to another free read this week. This one is a magazine that I’ve been a supporter of since the beginning. Lorehaven is a quarterly publication for faith-based speculative fiction. Lorehaven is the magazine side that has tons of “flash reviews” on Christian speculative fiction (SF/F/H genre stories) and SpecFaith is their growing, online collection of articles that discuss the intersection of faith and fantasy. (Here is an article that I wrote.)


Lorehaven serves Christian fans by finding biblical truth in fantastic stories. Book clubs, free webzines, and a web-based community offer flash reviews, articles, and news about Christian fantasy, science fiction, and other fantastical genres.

You should totally check out their most recent issue here: I highly recommend this and encourage readers to check out their reading groups, as well.

Free Fiction Tuesday


I’ve been pretty neglectful of Wattpad lately. Truthfully I’m never really sure that what I’m doing by way of online promotion is really working and as such I’m not totally sold on Wattpad–it just seems overrun with bad fan fiction and erotica written by fifteen-year-olds. (I wish that was an exaggeration. Believe me.) But those stories like Fifty Shades of Junior High (okay–that title I did make up,) literally get millions of hits. There’s got to be some way to harness it effectively without sacrificing my writing quality or my integrity. I guess time will tell, but until then I will try and connect with a readership there by posting some new content.

While I can’t post Wolf of the Tesseract in its entirety I can put up a big teaser chunk of it and a back-link to the Amazon sales page. I also plan to put up book 1 of the Kakos Realm. Here are a few links to those stories on Wattpad.

The wolf is coming… will anyone survive?

In a world underneath our own reality, where magic and science are two sides of the same coin, a sorcerer breaks forbidden dimensional barriers and seeks a student named Claire Jones whose blood holds the ability to unlock cataclysmic power. As she flees through dimensional rifts, Claire turns to fight back–even knowing that her blood could rip open cosmic fissures if the slightest details of her plan goes awry.

Free Book until Tomorrow

Last time I did a free giveaway on my nonfiction book it hit #1 in the two categories it was listed in–I’ve done that again and would love to share it with you, too! As a sidenote, if you get it on Kindle (even if it was free) you can get the Audible version for less than $2 and listen on a commute.

Feedback from readers:
“Every pastor and church leader needs to read this book”

“Schmitz interlaces Biblical Biblical scholarship, hard-hitting statistics, and gut-wrenching anecdotes seamlessly to create a can’t-put-it-down feeling.”

“I think it would be nearly impossible to read this book and not have a changed heart toward the functioning of our church bodies.”
