Synopsis of The Best Is Yet to Come:

Featuring ten stories collected for the first time ever, The Best Is Yet to Come, presents nine years of creativity spun from the mind of John F. Allen. Action and adventure are ever present in these stories, but be prepared for some drama, horror, fantasy and science fiction as well.

This volume includes a holiday story, “An Ivory Christmas,” featuring Ivory Blaque, Allen’s bold heroine from his acclaimed urban fantasy series The God Killers, and the center of his literary universe, The Ivoryverse.

Also included are:

“Forest of Shadows” the debut of a fabled, ancient warrior named, Jaziri, Prince of Kimbogo Province.

You may want to think twice before venturing out into the dark woods of rural Indiana in “The Legend of Matchemonedo.”

A young, set assistant of a 50’s science fiction serial gets to embark on the journey of a lifetime in “The Adventures of Star Blazer.”

A young woman in late 1970’s Indianapolis, learns to be careful what you wish for in “HoodRatz.”

When a woman struggles to care for her ailing father, she discovers the truth behind her troubled past in “The Sweetest Autumn.”

Long ago, a noble samurai finds forbidden love with a beautiful, ebony skinned princess in “The African Princess.”

A mysterious, military operative is sent on a covert mission in Egypt, when he encounters an alien monster bent on revenge in “Lazarus.”

Forty years ago, a young boy discovers that family means everything in “The Chocolate Malt.”

The Best is Yet to Come also features the special bonus short story, “Witch Way is Up.”

PERSONAL RENEWAL

It’s March.
We’re already into the 3rd month of 2018 and you may find it odd that I’m talking about resolutions.
I’m not referring to the hollow New Year’s traditions which most people make with earnest intentions, but usually fall short and say, “Well, there’s always next year!” No, I’m talking about PERSONAL RENEWAL. It’s about real, attainable and determined change.
It’s taken me years to come to this point in the road of my journey and I can’t afford to turn back, backslide or waste another moment or squander any opportunities I’ve been blessed with. At nearly a half century in age, time is of the essence.

JFA 5
So, starting yesterday, almost a week before you’re reading this, I came to recognize that there will be some extensive changes in what I do and how I do it.
This not only applies to my writing career, but also to every facet of my life. In fact, the changes started much earlier, but I am now starting to take stock of them regarding my writing.
To my loyal readers, expect more from me, expect better from me and expect more of me.
To those who may be joining me at this point in my journey…stay tuned, TBIYTC (The Best Is Yet To Come)!!!

JOHN F. ALLEN TO CO-HOST TWO TOWERS TALK SHOW WITH R.J. SULLIVAN

TTTS FRAME

Hello everyone! I’m EXTREMELY excited to announce a NEW venture I’ll be embarking on in March 2016, called the Two Towers Talk Show! This will be a YouTube talk show featuring:

  • Comic Book reviews/commentary (primarily from me)
  • TV and movie reviews/commentary
  • Classic/old movie reviews (primarily from R.J.)
  • Author interviews
  • Guest hosts
  • AND MORE!!!

I’ll be co-hosting the show with friend and fellow author, R.J. Sullivan. Together, we will explore and discuss Pop Culture, geeky stuff, etc… While R.J. and I are often in sync with our opinions, we contrast sufficiently to make for insightful, positive and  interesting conversations.
The show will be sponsored by the Speculative Fiction Guild, shot in Indianapolis, Indiana primarily at our Two Towers Talk Show Studio, but also sometimes on location at various conferences, conventions and community events. We will also place a strong emphasis on Indie and Small Press authors from around the globe, as well as Indy region authors.
Over the holidays, I approached R.J. with the idea of creating a YouTube talk show about things we normally would spend quite a bit of time talking about anyway. Coincidentally, he had already had pretty much the same idea (Great minds think alike!).
We’re both looking to have individual video and editorial features where we discuss personal Pop Culture interests as well.
R.J. and I have had plenty conversations about the various directions the show may go, but we both agreed that things like this are best grown organically, and that’s how this show will develop.
We’re also looking forward to interacting with our viewers and readers via comments on our videos, blog posts and social media outlets. There will also be a Mail Room segment of each show where we answer on-air, a selection of email questions you send us @: twotowerstalkshow@gmail.com
Sometimes we will be broadcasting live and/or on location, where we will be taking a selection of twitter questions as well.
The show will begin airing on YouTube starting in March 2016 and has a companion blog/website and social media presence (see below).
