A little while ago, fellow author Robert Lee Beers contacted me with some kind words about my space fantasy novel, Jak Phoenix. I always enjoy hearing from other authors and as you know I’ve posted a lot of great info about other independent writers in the past.
Robert had this to say:
I am giving book 1 a five star review for a specific reason: this is a mind movie. Many of the best-selling authors do not offer the escapism this style of writing delivers. Harry Potter, yes, Lord of the Rings, no. I am not comparing Mister Williams to either Rowling or Tolkein, not at all, but I am comparing the prose. Jak Phoenix comers across to me as a sort of Indiana Jones of the galaxy, and the madcap ride of his adventures certainly delivers an enjoyable read. Is it Dickens? Is it Dumas? Of course not. This is reading for an escape, and in today’s world we need this.
Robert Lee Beers is the author of the Tony Mandolin series, which you can read about on his website.
