To those of you dropping by for the first time: Hi! I’m Robert Dahlen, the author of the Monkey Queen novel series, in which Michiko (teenage hero with a wisecracking streak) and Beth (fangirl college student) team up to “save the world” (they’re starting small). It’s fantasy adventure with heroines, humor and heart, and a friendship that may be leading to something more. The first book, Of Introductions And Abductions, is on sale for just 99 cents US/CA/AU, £0.99, and €0,99 now through May 31! You can find all the sale links, and learn more about Michiko and Beth, after the cut!

A request/reminder for Monkey Queen fans to start this Sunday catchup: If you’ve enjoyed Michiko and Beth’s adventures, please take the time to leave a review! People do pay attention to what other readers have to say about books they’re interested in. They’ll do the most good on Amazon, especially for any book after the first, but any review anywhere you want to post it will help. Don’t be shy! I appreciate all the support I’ve received so far from reviewers, and the readers you could be bringing in will appreciate it too. More, including another way you can help, after the cut.

Regular visitors to this blog know that I love webcomics. One of my favorites is Max Overacts, about an aspiring child actor with an overactive imagination, written and drawn by ace cartoonist Canaan Grall. It’s been on hiatus recently due to his health issues. He’s been diagnosed with a brain tumor, and will undergo surgery next month.
He won’t be able to work for several months after the surgery, and his family’s finances will be taking a major hit. A relative has started a GoFundMe page to help cover their expenses. I know money is tight all around, but if you can spare anything, please drop by the page and donate. I’ve never met or contacted the Gralls, but Canaan seems like a good guy, and his family could use a hand or two right now. Thanks.
Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! Let’s start with another reminder: If you have a Kobo e-reader, or Kobo software on your smartphone or tablet, you’re all set to follow Michiko and Beth’s adventures! US readers can get all five Monkey Queen books through the Kobo site, Canadians can hit Indigo, and you can always search your favorite e-book store for “Monkey Queen” or “Robert Dahlen!” More after the cut.

Sunday catchup time! Just make sure you’ve got your hand sanitizer ready; whatever flu-like bug I’ve picked up this week is tough and contagious. I apologize in advance if this infects the internet. More after the cut. Continue reading
