About the author and publisher:
Kenneth Shumaker (Rusty Knight)
Following a long break from writing, I recovered my passion for writing in 2009, returning to science fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, fantasy, and nonfiction as an author with Inevitable Unicorn Press (InUPress), turning away from the psychically and emotionally draining award winning poetry of my past. I am now publishing the Owerton Challenge, co-authoring the Bard & Dragoman series, and writing other blogs and publications. I also have available a medieval fantasy novel, titled ‘Laret: Darkness of Souls’ – the first novel of my ‘Lost Souls’ series. I’m also writing several serial short story series. I have two businesses, my wife, two children, and six grandchildren keeping me busy.
About our authors:
Eric J Kregel
Eric J. Kregel is a Christian pastor by day and novelist/storyteller by night. He has worked with some form of the Protestant Christian Church for about 20 years. He holds a BA in English, an MA in Religious Education, 2/3-ish MA in Old Testament Theology, and a Doctorate in Church Leadership. The chief reason he received the doctorate was to get a discount on his ski lift tickets and to sound really smug at parties.
Born and raised in San Jose, United States, he now lives in Edmonton, Canada with his family. He enjoys folk music, storytelling, travelling through time and space, and writing various genres of fiction and nonfiction.
His blog is at https://ericjkregel.wordpress.com/ It is a collection of Eric’s writings on faith, art, ethics, society, and stories.

Eathel’s first story with us, ‘Animals Strike back‘, was originally published in InUPress’ Dalan ezine, though it is now available as a stand-alone purchase. Eathel is writing a series of three animal world novels currently. He shares his writing forays with the writing group, the Fellowship of the Scribblers.
About our Editor:
Donna Shumaker (Aria)
I met Kenneth (Rusty Knight) (the moderator of the Quantos realm blogs and my beloved husband) who introduced me to his world of North Amara almost 14 years ago. For several years, I and various other followers contributed to the ongoing stories. My character, Ta’Myka the elven bard, was one of my characters in one of our fantasy story. It’s exciting to bring her ‘back to life’ in the Bard & Dragoman series. I hope you find her as interesting as I do.
There isn’t much to say about myself; I am really just an average middle-aged woman. I work in education and have a nursing background. I have two wonderful grown children granting me six grandchildren.

Jeannette Spohn (Polar Bear Editing)
Jeannette Spohn is the owner and lead editor at Polar Bear Editing.
Her focus of study while achieving her English Degree was Literature and Creative Writing.
She’s been editing for the past twenty years on a side hustle basis. She made the leap to full-time editor several years ago. She specializes in fiction but loves to work with any piece of writing to create beautiful copy that will resonate with its readers.
She loves to hear from people, so don’t be afraid to pop by just to say hi and tell her about your favorite books or the types of things you like to write.
We’re in the process of creating thorough services pages that detail the information you’ll want to know before you’re forced to contact a human being. Until then, (and even after then) I encourage you to write me with questions. I’m happy to advise with no pressure or assumptions you’ll hire Polar Bear Editing. I’m an advocate for writers of all kinds; newbies and seasoned pros.

Julie Anne Eason
Julie Anne Eason is a best selling author and has been a professional writer for over 20 years. After figuring out that fiction writing wasn’t for her, she turned to freelance journalism, copywriting, and ghostwriting for a living in order to stay home and raise her three children.
As technology advanced, she witnessed the balance of power in the publishing industry shift. Once the big New York publishers held all the cards. Writers were “lucky” if they could land an agent or a book contract. But now individuals are taking the initiative and writing, publishing, and marketing their own books without the need for an agent or publisher to give them a chance. Finally, businesses and non-profits can take advantage of the amazing power of books to spread their messages and promote their products.
Julie prefers to work with business people because she enjoys writing books that meet certain marketing goals. Her newest work, The Profitable Business Author: How to Write a Book That Attracts Clients and Customers, empowers business people to write their own books using the same proven method she developed for her best selling clients.
Recently, she combined her love for marketing and writing to create The Successful Author Podcast, where she interviews book industry experts on writing, publishing, and marketing books.
2011 – Fastest book record — wrote physical book in 7 days (That was one awesome, whirlwind week!)
2012 – First Amazon best seller
2013 – First New York Times best seller; First Barnes & Noble best seller
