Binge-Worthy Reads: The Dragonspeaker Chronicles

The Bastard Prince

Dragonspeaker Chronicles 1

She has a dragon, and she’s not afraid to use it.

Nellie Dreessen is a kitchen maid in the palace of Regent Bernard of Saardam. She has worked for two kings and two regents, has seen two royal families murdered through magic, has seen ghosts and demons, and kept her head down like a good girl.

On her fiftieth birthday, she receives her late father’s diary, which describes a magical item that is so evil, it needs to be kept in the church crypt: a box that contains dragon.

Problem is, someone has stolen the box.

Regent Bernard holds a banquet for his eldest son’s sixteenth birthday. Distinguished guests come from far and wide. Because she knows what the box looks like, Nellie discovers it in a nobleman’s luggage.

Removing the box from a thief’s room is not stealing, right? Not if you intend to return it to the rightful owner: the church.

But someone poisons the nobleman, and everyone in the kitchen is a suspect. Nellie’s friend in the church advises Nellie to flee with the dragon box. The Regent is on a mission to stamp out magic, and Nellie plans to do what she does best: keep her head down and hide.

Problem is, the dragon has other ideas.

The Wizard Priest

Dragonspeaker Chronicles 2

A young prince, an evil wizard, and a city that no longer seems to care.

Cast out from the palace, Nellie survives in the streets of Saardam with the poor and destitute and a dragon whose behaviour she can’t control, but is the key to finding the last member of the royal family.

The pompous Regent is hell-bent on finding the person who has killed his court advisor and he has decided the dragon is guilty. If he doesn’t find a culprit, his main source of money is at stake. The guards comb the city. It’s only a matter of time before they find Nellie.

A terrible mishap caused by the dragon puts Nellie’s friend and a number of other innocent people in prison. Nellie can no longer run and hide.

She concocts the most daring escape plan ever, but in gathering help to carry it out, she makes discoveries that may change the future of the city.

The Dragon King

Dragonspeaker Chronicles 3

Take an adolescent boy. Make him angry. Add dragons.

Saving Prince Bruno from the church crypts hasn’t turned out the way Nellie had planned. The boy is morose, angry, hellbent on revenge, and incapable of wielding the power he has been given. But the group of refugees who have fled from the city have bigger concerns. It’s winter, they need to survive, and find a safe place to recover and plan their next move.

But the boy does something stupid. Through the prince’s single impatient action, they don’t have the time to recover anymore. The wizard knows where he is, he has the whole city eating out of his hands, and Nellie has to come up with a plan to defeat him, because the only other option is death.

100 Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books to Read in a Lifetime

Amazon has a list of the year’s best books. What we care about is the Sci-fi list, so here it is:

Click to see the list on Amazon

I’ve already bought Oathbringer and Artemis.

Of the rest, Persepolis Rising is definitely on my list. David Wong’s “What the Hell Did I Just Read” is also on there, I loved the last book.

Ann Leckie has no chance of ever getting my time, ever again.

The Book of Dust is getting passed around all the time in my social media echo chamber, so I’ll give it a shot.

What else should I add to my TBR pile?

Binge-Worthy Reads: Drakon

I met Mr. Caskabel yesterday. He’s like me, working on both the Greek and English markets (USA). He’s also helping out budding authors in Athens, running a printing press, so many things.

This is his book series, Drakon. It has been praised by everyone I know, so check it out. It is bloody, dirty, sexy, powerful. If you liked Game of Thrones, you’ll like this too. If you are squeamish, hoo boy, click away now.

There’s a 4 book series on Amazon. That should be enough for you to binge on.

What they said about Drakon:

“A quick-paced, exhilarating story that, after only the first volume, is already epic.” — Kirkus Reviews


“If you like dark fantasy, this is a fantastic installment.”


“Fast-paced and full of action, but it is the first-person narrative that makes it so powerful.”


“No magic or strange creatures, just people brainwashed by powerful stories full of symbolism and dark beauty.”


“The first in a new high fantasy series, Caskabel introduces us to his protagonist (Da-Ren) through the grueling and cruel coming of age gauntlet called The Sieve that will lead him to find his place in the culture. Caskabel has built an elaborate mythology and religion that he skilfully weaves into his story as we watch Da-Ren survive.”


“This book took me to a place that was dark, mysterious and new.”


“A haunting, captivating book that immerses you in its lyricism only to drown you in its barbarism a couple of pages later.”


“The Hunger Games and Maze Runner meets Genghis Khan.”


“DRAKON travels you to a magic world of bravery, treachery, and love. The book does not just create a new universe of characters and norms: it also takes you there.”

We actually prefer that you buy from the major retailers, cause that gets the algorithms rolling. But for various reasons we have the same stories available on our site.

In the future, we will offer variant covers that will not be available on any retailer.

Regarding Kindle Unlimited titles: We are experimenting with KU distribution. That, called Kindle Select, has an exclusivity clause that prevents us from even selling on our own site. Only Amazon stores are allowed. We generally don’t like that but as soon as the titles shift out of select we will update the products here.

We now accept cryptocurrency. Complete your checkout as normal, and you can choose from Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum or Monero. Send us an email at mythographystudios@gmail.com after sending payment to verify the transaction and get your files.

I Have a Patreon Now. Patreons Are Cool.

Patronage. Just like the practice of old, we’ve resurrected the model into a digital mold, more fitting to the age.

I’m new to this. Be gentle.

Micropatronage, having a bunch of regular people pitching in small amounts instead of one wealthy patron, is being successful with plenty of examples.

What I had was a PILE of story ideas sitting on my projects folder. Some have merit, some are simply the butt of a joke. Others are pretty damn brilliant, I might say.

I took all that and decided to squeeze out at least one short story per month. That way, I can see the works-in-progress slowly thinning down, I can test them with real people and real readers, and see which one’s a winner and which one’s a dud.

I’ve been doing that already with the Epic Poets, but to be honest, I firmly believe in putting one’s money where one’s mouth is. Feedback from fans is excellent, but feedback from people who have paid a dollar carries much more weight.

Also, I have plenty of ideas that fall into fantasy or urban fantasy. At some point, as I burn through the sci-fi ones, I’ll eventually work on those too. Having patrons will provide a steady and verifiable metric that my output will be worth the time invested. I’m bound to change a lot of this on my Patreon page, I just threw one up quickly.

There’s a short story waiting for you right now, called “Life Coach.”

So, click the orange button to get a steady flow of speculative fiction short stories. I’m your story-dealer. Be patronizing. Or just share the post with your friends.
