About the author and publisher:


Kenneth Shumaker




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 writing on Virily and other blogs, 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 Editor:



Donna Shumaker (Aria)




I met Kenneth (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 favourite 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.
