Author Update 2019

STAR SERIES 01 PREVIEWMore to come shortly, but I just wanted to let you know that my old website vanished, so I’ll be switching to this one. Updates coming!

For now, I recently released the audiobook for my superheroes in space / space fantasy book, SHADOW MYSTIC (Book 4 in the SHADOW CORPS series). I’m also surging on the ASCENSION GATE series.

Find them all on my Amazon page!

Retribution Calls

Retribution CallsIf you’ve been waiting for an awesome fantasy series with amazing book covers, here it is! So much fantasy is based on Europe, so I wanted to do what George RR Martin did with his series based on the Wars of the Roses, but with mine based on Ancient Greek wars between Sparta and Athens. Yes, I made it a fantasy world and fictionalized it, but you’ll see the influence.

I took the Martin route regarding magic too. For me, it’s more about the people and character – so book one has HINTS of magic (for the perceptive among you), book 2 a little bit more, and then book 3 (coming late July) comes out swinging with the fantasy aspects. I loved how Game of Thrones did this, but would have loved those books with even less magic — so that’s what I set out to do.

Hope you enjoy! You can buy it at the link below, or read most of my books, including this series, free with Kindle Unlimited. PS – the cover you see here is the final one. Amazon takes a few days to update, sometimes.





Terry Goodkind – The Sword of Truth

I finally started reading The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. A few people warned me away from it, saying it goes crazy directions. But I don’t care! I love it so far and I’m sticking with it.

It’s hard to find authors you love. For me there’s been a few lately, including George R.R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson, Will Wight, Patrick Rothfuss, and now Terry Goodkind in fantasy. I also have a tendency to enjoy authors of younger fiction, such as Brandon Mull, Shannon Hale, and Maggie Stiefvater.

When I “discover” one of these authors, it makes my day. So I’ll keep sharing about their awesome work, and you keep letting me know about others I need to be reading. Thanks!


Great Amazon Review on Retribution Calls (Epic Fantasy)

covermockup2I love this review for my epic fantasy books Land of Gods and Retribution Calls.

Check out the review here!

5 Stars. 

“I really enjoyed the first two books. The visual experience I get from the book is sublime. I can imagine how every scene is made into a movie. Justin’s writing style reads easy and is descriptive enough (not overly done, as is sometimes the case in fantasy).

The mystical “North” had me mesmerized. I loved the scenery and their way of life. Amaris was a welcome addition and I like how the love triangle unravelled.

I enjoyed the first 2 books in the series and can’t wait for the third one!”

Write Like Game of Thrones

Here I am to share with you THE SLOAN ZONE episode where I talk about how Game of Thrones inspired me to write, and I read a small passage that I think does a wonderful job of showing how amazing of an author George R.R. Martin is. Enjoy!

Justin Sloan’s Youtube Author Channel

That’s right, I started a Youtube channel. It feels silly, but I’m doing it because Garrett Robinson told me I had to. Okay, not exactly, but he said it’s a good idea for authors.

It will be me talking about my books (kind of behind the scenes, like DVD extras), who I am as an author, and what I’m reading, watching, and listening to that inspires me.

Check it out and spread the word! Feedback is more than welcome.
