Pay it Forward Friday with Author Daniel B. Royer and Secrets of the Egoles’ Nest…

BOOK COVER.00_jpg_srzpublishSecrets of the Egoles’ Nest is based on Aben Egole, who’s first introduced as a sheltered toddler. Later he becomes acquainted with a powerful young mystic named Nastera. Once alone, she shares more than a secret about his incredible heritage.

Aben’s proof of her assertion came by means of a whirl-wind ride, as he begins his first class in free flight.

Afterward, Aben, with the help of a mystical dynasty, persuade his father, Colonel Ivory Egole, to move he and his son to another planet for their protection. Once situated, they are overwhelmed with bewildering situations, goading the father and son team into treacherous missions, but not without the help from a planet full of super-beings, properly named Astroknights.

Soon after they begin their first mission, Aben’s provoked, triggering an emotional upheaval, igniting his superlative DNA and its incredible mutative power. After transforming, he unleashes chaos among flocks of deadly aggressors.

This mission leads to even more battles of good versus evil, spurring a confrontation with the most dangerous warlord in the universe, Imperial General Warnod. 

A quote from a reviewer about Secrets of the Egoles’ Nest

A great introduction to the world of Sci Fi and Fantasy for any young reader, it has a little bit of everything. There is so much creativity throughout the story it’s obvious Royer has an incredible span to his imagination, his real challenge is whether he can focus it and truly draw us in before he whisks us off to his next fantastical thought.


Guest Post by Author Daniel B. Royer

Just to give you a peek into my past, I was born and raised in a small town called Bay Village, located in north-east Ohio. Having had a car accident at the age of sixteen devastated my family’s life style, which eventually caused me to leave home at the young age of seventeen.

I departed from my home in New Orleans, LA. to chase a dream of going back to Bay Village and graduating high school with childhood friends, which I did. After graduating high school I chose to join the 101st Screaming Eagles, located in Fort Campbell, KY.

Having achieved high scores in four extremely adventurous, military schools, excelled my rank to buck-sergeant in less than three years. Shortly thereafter I became a father of three adorable children. It was after raising my children I pursued another goal of writing science-fiction.

Using my extremely creative ability to write passionately and descriptively, paired with my insatiable desire to research all means of Science-fiction, has led to the development of The Egoles’ Sci-fi Series

004I’ve spent most of my life raising my three children in a comfortable and loving atmosphere, away from the drama of toxic life style with their busy mother and vile step-father. Having to provide for their living, I spent most of my days in a physically demanding Factory.

Once they were properly raised I went on to writing my first book in 2008, The Biography of an American Poet then Poetic Biography of an American Baby Boomer. 

Afterwards I spent over three years developing and publishing my first sci-fi fantasy, Secrets of the Egoles’ Nest. Currently, I’m on the second book in The Egoles’ Sci-fi, fantasy series, Roar of the Egole.

Synopsis of

MINDSTORM Parley at Ologo

front sanserifAlways an assistant, never the leader. Thomas McCrady is helping his partner with a peace treaty negotiation when a hostile telepath leads a group of locals in an attack on the meeting. After using his own psionic abilities to fight off the telepathic attacker, he teleports his partner back to the Haidar Space Station and promptly passes out. When he wakes up, he finds that his partner has died and a disabled psionic medicine specialist might be to blame.

The next morning, he learns that he is being sent out on another treaty negotiation, this time as the lead negotiator. A mysterious plague is killing off the two native races of the planet but has no effect on the humans working at a pharmaceutical company with corporate offices there. To find the truth about the plague, the Haidar Station magistrates are sending a doctor along, Dr. Calla Geisman, the same doctor Thomas blames for his partner’s death.

The situation is urgent, leaving no time for preparation, and the Terran pharmaceutical company that offered to help seems bent on sabotaging the negotiation in little, annoying ways. Worse, the two delegations can barely stand to be in the same room just like Thomas can stand to be around Calla.

He knows his prejudices are wrong, but her disability weakens her ability and reminds him of a drug dealer who tried to kill him seven years before. To survive the negotiations and forge peace between the warring natives, Thomas has to overcome his past and learn to trust his partner.


5 Star Review of

MINDSTORM Parley at Ologo

by Author Cindy Koepp

4thofjuly-1_e0Two telepathic people from Haidar are commissioned to help a troubled planet parlay for peace and in so doing find a war of their own.

Koepp certainly walks the tightrope of science fiction and fantasy in this exciting tale.

Not only does Mindstorm have an array of interesting creatures and a galaxy of unique planets that they inhabit, but the elaborate system of telepathy tunnels the reader into a fragile landscape of mind and emotion. An exciting journey into and through deep and interesting fictional characters.

An excellent read, Mindstorm: Parlay at Olgio brings humor in the midst of drama, and passion in the midst of prejudice. I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

Snippet of

MINDSTORM Parley at Ologo

Angela reeled back as if she had been kicked in the head. Thomas tried to catch her, but his fingers brushed past the sleeve of her shirt. She hit the ground hard and stayed still.


The garden’s gate burst open a second later under the weight of several Cordilians. The first hit on his mental shield came a second after the gate fell. His protection wobbled but held. Gunshots echoed off the garden’s wall. Bits of rock from a planter struck his thigh.

He yelped and dove under the table, even though the thin wood would never stop a bullet or a blaster bolt. He clapped his hand over the wound. If he were lucky, the snipers wouldn’t see him.

Shrill screams split the air. The sense of pain and terror from the delegates sickened him. He could do nothing to help them directly, but if he could reach Angela, he could teleport them both home, get her to a doctor, and send back more experienced help for the delegations.

As he inched toward her, a female presence shoved against his shields. Thomas bolstered his defense and pushed her back.

You want a fight? You got one.

A dark, curvaceous image bearing a pair of fiery knives appeared in his mental perception. Her hand covered her mouth. “Ooo. That didn’t hurt, did it?”

Thomas mustered every scrap of power and focus he could pull together. “Not half as much as this will.”

His own personal image formed in the shape of a huge wolf. He launched himself at the shadow woman and tackled her, tearing into her with a mouth full of sharp teeth.
