Bryan Strickland, a lifelong Coloradoan, is a man of many talents. He writes, draws, paints, and sings. Well, no, he doesn’t really sing; though he loves music and plays violin and guitar. Writing is his passion and focus. He is a storyteller, a creator of worlds, and a crafter of sentences and descriptions. He is a student and lover of words; particularly those grandiose and archaic.
That’s right, Lyra is turning 2! To celebrate, I am hosting a Free E-book Giveaway on my Amazon sitestarting Friday, Oct 8th and ending on Tuesday, Oct 12th. As my gift to you, dear reader, the E-book version of Lyra Rayne: Ground Zero will be completely free!

Wow, has it really been two months since my last blog post? Oops. Not really an intention, but with how crazy this whole quarantine situation has been, it is easy to lose track of time. Rest assured, however, that work on Lyra Rayne: Deal with the Devil is still on going. As are several other projects that I’ve been working on.
Most importantly, all of us here are thankful for our health and well being and hope that you are also healthy and doing well. Remember that it is in crazy times like these, we are reminded how fortunate so many of us truly are. Some of us are not so fortunate and we need to look to the right and left of us to ensure that we can help everyone to find equal footing and well being.
This quarantine has us all reeling in one way or another. Many people are home bound, reshuffling priorities, and struggling to find something to occupy their comparatively excessive free time with. What’s a person to do?
Well, starting April 2nd through to April 6th, 2020, the Lyra Rayne: Ground Zero Ebook will be available for free on Amazon.com. Spread the word and share the gift of Lyra!
