Welcome!

♦ What You'll Find. Single Fantasy book reviews, funny author and reader interviews, SFF lists, (blogs, websites, authors), articles, a fledgling discussion forum and experiments in the art of blog promotion.

♦ Purpose. This blog is a companion to Dragons, Heroes and Wizards where I do nothing but Fantasy series reviews. This blog is where I put everything else.

♦ Site is mobile friendly: however I can not insure that external links will be the same. A few of my larger indexes may view better in landscape mode but most should scale.

♦ Thank you for stopping by and I sincerely hope you enjoy your stay!

Ever Wonder Where Your Favorite SFF Authors Hang Out?

Important! This post is rarely updated. Please double check the Page tab for newer updates:

Big Update 11/23/2013! 

Some old updated, alot new added. 132 SFF Authors and growing!


www.layoutsparks.comHere for your Twittering, Blogging, Facebooking, Pinterest, Tumblr and forum perusing pleasure is a list of SFF Authors and where they can be found on the web!

Note: You can find a much larger twitter list which includes 7 different categories like publishers and book reviewers on my Squidoo page HERE which unfortunately I can no longer update and tech support is ignoring me.

I have also created a large list of SFF related blogs and websites HERE if you are looking for more reviews and SF/F/H/YA information to checkout. You can also add yourself to the list by leaving a comment.

Since list is getting really long I put them in alphabetical order. This however will make it difficult to tell which are new entries. So I'll add an * next to the new name. During the next update old * will go poof!




Table should now be viewable in mobile. If not please let me know!

*Disclaimer* As with anything on the internet, in some cases it is impossible to tell if the person behind the name is real or a fraud. I try my best to confirm the validity of these links but I can not guarantee them. Take for example, Terry Brooks. He has twitter, facebook, forum and website accounts devoted to everything Brooks but the posts are not his. He does however participate in a Q and A on the website each month so he is involved behind the scenes.

About These Lists:

I am lumping Sci-fi and Fantasy authors together, mainly because alot of them crossover in their writing. Same with Paranormal/Urban/Contemporary Fantasy Authors.  You may notice that the latter is a much shorter list. This is because I personally do not read those genres and am therefore unfamiliar with most of its authors. For this reason I especially request your input. If there is an Urban, Contemporary, Paranormal author you would like to see included, drop me a comment, email or tweet and I'll see that they are added.

No self-pub, Indie or POD authors please.

Blogs take priority but if no blog is available, I will link to website instead.

Facebook rules now require a page for professionals instead of, or in addition to, a personal profile. Some are on board with that rule change and some are not. I will update the FB link to an official page when and if I detect a change.

Note: official pages are not to be confused with fan pages though alot of authors control or are atleast active on fan pages. When possible, I will link to the professional page first, if one is not available, but a fan page is, I will link to that instead, and barring any other option I will link to a personal profile.

I have also added a forum and a combined tumblr/pinterest column. Now forums are problematic also. Some authors are very active in their forums, others are not. I am not going to have the time to determine which is the case so you will have to visit the forums and discover this for yourself.

Oh and one other thing, a No in the column does not mean it does not exist, it means I have not found it, yet.

Corrections are not only welcome but encouraged!

    Another resource The Fantasy Times - http://thefantasytimes.berserkerproductions.com/thefantasytimes/?p=410

  3. Fantasy Dreamer.

    I LOVE that second list, it is genre specific and I recognize most of the names there. The first list is hard to weed through and since that one depends on folks adding themselves, I think there are alot of PoD and aspiring authors there.

    I added yours, found that Twitter account for you :>)
    Fantasy Dreamers tip will take alot longer to process but I'll work on it!

    List is growing already!

  16. Mulluane, Lisa Shearin just announced a new "book-centric Facebook account" https://www.facebook.com/LisaShearinAuthor?skip_nax_wizard=true . I think that's the kind you prefer?

    It was just luck that I found this post right after I read the announce about that page on her blog. {Chuckle, Smile}
