Pay It Forward Fridays came from this post by Emily Guido. The idea is to feature a blogger or author on Fridays and give them a little shoutout. Anyone goes as long as they’re interested.
I’ve received an incredible amount of support from bloggers, authors and people I’ve met on line who didn’t know me and were just very kind, supportive souls. And, when I read that post by Emily Guido, I thought: time to give back.
I loved this quote from Emily’s mother:
“I cast a couple of pieces of bread on the water and the waves bring me back a ham sandwich.”
Karma is a beautiful thing.
Today I’m focusing on Luther M. Siler.
He says of himself:
“Luther Siler was born in 1976 in northern Indiana, where he currently resides along with his wife, three-year-old son, two cats, and two dogs. In his spare time he works at a school helping other people be awesome. His favorite authors include John Scalzi, N.K. Jemisin, Brandon Sanderson, Cherie Priest, Salman Rushdie, Mira Grant/Seanan McGuire, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Howard, John Irving, Nnedi Okorafor, Saladin Ahmed, Helene Wecker and Stephen King.
He writes about space gnomes and Mars. His novel SKYLIGHTS and his short story novella THE BENEVOLENCE ARCHIVES: VOL. 1 are both available on Amazon now. Another book in the BENEVOLENCE ARCHIVES universe, as yet untitled, is expected early next year.”
Luther has written two books so far:
They’re both available on Amazon. Click on either cover.
But that’s not all. Luther has written a ton of short fiction and is going to be a part of an upcoming collaborative work titled World Unknown Review with a group of other authors.
Personally, I’ve read Luther’s writing and find it highly addictive not only because it’s lively, fun and so easy to read but because his humour is contagious. Rare is the day when I don’t read his blog posts at Infinitefreetime.com. If you’re a fan of science fiction, check out his books at amazon and you’ll see why everyone’s ranting about them.
