Author Interview with Brave Marcher Lord Steve Rzasa (and a Book Release!)

Happy New Year’s!

I hope you had a wonderful last few weeks in 2017 and are ready to start a new year with piling new books on your TBR pile.

Errr, I mean, a new year of reading old and new books alike. 😉

To start off the new year with a bang, I’m sharing a book that just released from the authors of Marcher Lord Press (now Enclave Publishing) as well as an interview with Steve Rzasa, one of the authors.

Will you be “brave enough” to read it and take a chance on this book? Scroll down to find out! Hehe!

About the Book

What happens when you bring seven different authors together and unleash them upon a single story?

One wild adventure.

Famed archer Barzillai Broadhead gathers a band of four unlikely compatriots in a quest for the Crystal of Darkness. Monsters and sorcery bar their way at every turn. If they’re brave enough – or dumb enough – they might save the world.


Written by Morgan L. Busse, Kerry Nietz, John W. Otte, Steve Rzasa, Marc Schooley, Stuart Vaughn Stockton, and Jill Williamson.

All profits will be split between support of the Realm Makers Mobile Bookstore, and a scholarship towards registration at the Realm Makers conference.

Let’s Chat!

– Welcome Steve! So excited to have you here! What’s the bravest (or dumbest) thing you did you in 2017?

Combination of the two: the insane amount of writing I did this year! I churned out three novels (well, one should be finished in a week or two), one novella, four short stories, and four flash fiction stories that were later published in four Havok magazine issues. I also published one novel, and a collection of short stories. Whew!

– Wow! That’s amazing, Steve! So, guess what? You and your companions have embarked on a new adventure! What fantasy creature will be your companion and why?

A giant talking leopard. Why? Because it’s a character I need to envision for a story I have in mind, so I could use the practice! Also, he’s double normal size.

– Sounds like he could be an interesting companion. 😉 You’ve been given the opportunity to make and specialize your own sword (or weapon). What’s kind of special “feature” does it have? What does it look like?

I’d have to have a katana with the ability to slice portals in space/time, because really, who doesn’t want a sword that doubles as a weapon and a transportation aid?

– Must. Not. Steal. Idea. *twitches* Haha! Seriously that is such an epic idea! Can I have one? Thanks so much for taking the time to chat with me today, Steve, and looking forward to reading this!
