Welcome to the blog of Ron Leighton, Fantasy Author

Join me in the Shining Lands where gods, giants, werewolves, vampires and bears are real. (Oh, and I may share my art once in awhile so it doesn't get lonely in the portfolio.)

Liebster Blog Award

I got me another blog award nomination. This time it was from the speculative fiction writer Chris Mawbey, whose blog you can find here.  He's got some short stories and an ebook called Shades of Imagination. His nom-de-twitter is @ChrisMawbey.
As for me, I can always use the traffic, 'cause the way I figure it, every hundreth person will go, "Hey, wait, I kinda like this shtuff."
If you are nominated and wish to accept this award and pay it forward (and back), do this:
1. Thank the person who nominated you on your blog and link back to them.
2. Nominate up to 5 others for the award.
3. Let them know by commenting on your blog.
4. Post the award on your blog.
I know tons of folks with neat blogs and good stuff going on. This time around, though, I'm sticking with specifically fantasy-related blogs! Here are my nominations:
1. Over at Halla Litríocht you will find "the ramblings of Walter Shuler," aka, @anakronistical. He writes about many things, including his book, Gods of Sand and Stone.
2. Nicholas Rose has a number of fantasy books out. His blog is over here. And his twitter is @Nicholas_A_Rose
3. I finally found out what "hersenskim" means, and you will too when you visit Carin Marais's blog! Tweet her @CarinMarais
4. "Wake to a world tangled in the Threads of Fate" over at S.J. Wist's "Dragon Aster Trilogy" blog. When you get untangled, tweet her,
5. Find out about the "Children of the Lost Moon" over at Gabrielle Blue's site. Her tweets can be found @GabrielleBlue
When you are completely finished devouring these blogs, come on back over here and read up on the Shining Lands. :)


  1. hehe I'm totally gonna steal those lines! XD Thank you for the award! ^ ^

  2. Thanks for the award Ron! I'm putting my side of it together as quickly as I can... Hardest part is always finding the worthy ones, lol

    Thanks again


    1. I hear you. I stuck with only fantasy this time. I probably missed some good ones, but it is a shorter list. Happy hunting.
