Book Giveaways

Several free ebook giveaways are going on through out the month of October! Check’em out if you daire!

Novel Spotlight


Two novels to spotlight this month.
The first is The Cymage by Dave Walsh
With each cough death looms closer.
Only an experimental technology can save him.
New meaning enters his life when a foreign leader asks the humble monk Am’ranth to help solidify his legacy during a time of peace. That legacy?
A weapon unlike any other.
Their friendship is the stuff of legends; their rivalry reshaped humanity’s future.
A novelette set in Dave Walsh’s Andlios universe, the Cymage provides a glimpse into the rich history of the planet Andlios before the events of Terminus Cycle.

The second book is Reverb by David Fuentes
It’s ‘The Inbetweeners’ meets ‘Groundhog Day.’
‘Reverb: Live, Die, Rave, Repeat’ tells the epic story of six young and adventurous students who get to relive the first day of their, no holds barred, holiday to the hedonistic party haven of Magaluf over and over and over again.

[Support] Support your local author and leave a review!


With one week left in September (where does the time go), the last three months of 2019 are on the rise.
Several big events I’ll be selling at like North Scituate Art Festival, October’s Lively Literati (link coming soon), Rhode Island Comic Con, 7th Annual Rhode Island Author Expo are coming soon.
And let’s not forget NaNoWrimo, my username is rkbentley if you want to add me.
I’m happy to report the book is selling well at the festivals I’ve been going to like Necronomicon, Richmond Fall Festival and in bookstores like Stillwater Books in Pawtucket, RI.
And the mailing list has gotten bigger due to the Book Funnel and Story Origin’s giveaways.
The next step in all this is leaving a review with Goodreads.
If you’re reading this post and if you’ve managed to finish Where Weavers Daire it would be great if you could leave a review. It doesn’t have to be big.
I’d love to put some blurbs from the readers on the back cover of the next book or add them the next time I print copies of Weaver.
Every little bit helps myself as an author.
Thank you for your support.

Book 2 News


If everything had gone according to plan, book 2 should’ve been being edited by now and done but instead I found out something: I’m not a 1 book a year writer.
For those who manage to write and published 3 of these per year I salute you. There’s a metric crap ton of planning involved in just 1 book but getting 3 pushed out in a year is a lot effort involved. People often say: I didn’t know there was that much work involved.
Real life happens and here I am still working on getting chapters together so book 2 due date is 2020 and we’ll see what happens.
Book 2 won’t be a direct sequel. It will be a stand alone so you don’t need to read book 1.

I am very happy to report that people are buying the physical copies at Stillwater Books in Pawtucket, RI so much so they went through their original four of five copies (yes, the same ones in the picture above) and I’ve since dropped off more.
This is a good sign since it takes a lot just to sell 1 book per year in book stores.
