Tell me a little about yourself:
I love reading fantasy, science fiction and historical novels in the main. I am from the UK and live in the south east of England. It's a nice part of the world. We have some decent towns, the seaside, the South Downs and the flatter parts of drained marshland known as the Levels'
My hobbies, apart from reading, are painting and drawing, crochet, cross stitch, card-making and tatting. I also knit and sew, making some of my own clothes if I can't find what I want in the shops.
Which of my books is your favorite?
All the Shadow Stalker books.
What did you like most about them?
It is well written and has an original plot.
What did you like least about that book?
Nothing
Who was your favorite character?
Makari
Is there anything else you'd like to share with other potential readers?
Renee Scattergood's books are most enjoyable and are well-written, which is not always the case nowadays.

Viv is also an author of fantasy, and you can check out her work here!

A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words…Or Maybe 100,000 | Allison D. Reid

IN MY LAST NEWSLETTER, I ASKED MY READERS FOR SOME ADVICE.

For those of you who don’t get my newsletter (or just haven’t voted yet) my survey is still open. What’s it all about, you ask?
My cover art for Into the Shadow Wood was custom made by a wonderful artist–and it’s gotten a lot of attention. Readers helped me choose from a couple different concept designs for that cover, and they were totally right!
Now I am considering redesigning my Journey to Aviad and Ancient Voices covers too, so that they match in style and quality. I would release them when my next book is finished.
But before I go back to the artist and have him get to work, I’ve got a decision to make. Should I have him take the existing images and recreate them (or something similar) in his style? Or should I go with a completely new design?
I am not a marketing expert, and most of you probably aren’t either. But that doesn’t matter–you are my audience. You know what you like, and what you don’t, right? So I’m open and ready to listen.
I’ve got a survey set up, and I would appreciate any advice you have. Here are the book covers so you can see the old versus the new. (Click to see them enlarged.)

Special Feature: Into the Shadow Wood (Wind Rider Chronicles) by Allison D. Reid | Renee Scattergood

"Overall this was a great read...If you enjoy fantasy at all, or want to read books that are steeped in faith and mystery and wonder, you won't want to miss these." ~ David Wiley, Author of A Merchant in Oria
Once a proud member of the Sovereign’s prestigious personal guard, Einar has lost everything: his home, his Sovereign, and his purpose. Most of his closest friends have either been killed in battle or executed. His friend Nevon died trying to fulfill a dangerous oath…one that Einar disagreed with, but now feels honor-bound to take up in his stead. The quest plunges Einar into the depths of the dark and twisted Shadow Wood, testing the limits of his strength, his beliefs, and his sanity. What he finds in the Wood is far more ominous than anything he’d expected. If he’s not careful, Nevon’s fate might end up being his own.
