The Pen is Mightier by Andy C.F. Crawford
When we read, we are lucky to be taken to another world for the length of each tale. Andy Crawford’s The Pen is Mightier not only pulls us into his world, but he pulls us into the fantasy world he takes his characters to! Kind of like a two for one trip away from reality.
Sedrick Weir, college student and fantasy fan of one of the genre’s best authors, Paul Breston and his epic tales. Through some quirk of life or fantasy, he is given the power to propel into Breston’s tales, and get the inside scoop on what is really going on, beyond the scope of Breston’s pen. Being the avid fan he is he realizes that just maybe this realm is real, and those who are killed off or otherwise brutalized deserve better. Can he convince the author to tone down the damage to his fantasy “friends” or will Breston think Sed is just another rabid fan?
Get ready for the ride of your life as life imitates fantasy while fantasy becomes real. With humor, extensive details and a cast filled with unique characters, Andy Crawford has succeeded in changing the face of fiction in his own unique way. Imagine being a fly on the wall when an author aligns with publishers, and every aspect of those who bring his dreams and words to the public. Everyone has their own agenda, but in the end, their goal is a common one. How does Paul Breston rationalize the pain he has wrought in his world? How does Sed convince Paul to believe in him? Ahhh, one must take the ride to find out the brilliance, attitude, and bold pen of Andy Crawford to fully appreciate this tale! Not for those unwilling to leave reality far, far behind.
