Brian D. Anderson finds inspiration from son for writing bestselling Godling Chronicles



NEW YORK, NY – March 2013 When 8-year-old Jonathan came home from school one afternoon, he could hardly wait to tell his father his great idea for a book. Good thing he did for the more than 10,000 readers who bought copies of Brian D. Anderson’s first two installments of The Godling Chronicles within the first three months of their release from indie publisher GMTA.

“When you first release your book, you daydream about people all over the world reading and loving it. You imagine your work hitting bestseller lists, and how your life will change as a result,” Anderson said. “But, when it actually happens, it brings mixed emotions.”

Anderson of course was very excited about his initial success but said that feeling also came with a “hint of fear and anxiety” as he wanted to be sure the next book in the series was just as good.

In the young adult fantasy series, readers are introduced to a hero by the name of Gewey Stedding who discovers in Book One: The Sword of Truth that he is the only being ever created by the union of two Gods. Gewey takes on the Dark Knight and other vicious villains, while also finding ways to unite unlikely groups in Book Two: Of Gods and Elves. Anderson releases Book Three: The Shadow of Gods on March 14, his son’s birthday.

“Based on his 8-year-old son’s vision, dad has churned out a paperback novel perfect for readers age 12 and up,” wrote the Staten Island Advance.

Melanie’s Book Addiction said she has “a love/hate relationship with fantasy novels. Once in a while I stumble upon one that will blow my mind away. This is the case with The Godling Chronicles.”

“Yet another 5 star book from an amazing author in what I am sure will soon be a #1 bestselling series,” raved Kenn’s Reviews, who just might be on to something as Anderson’s novels have consistently landed on Amazon bestseller lists including Top 20 in Epic Fantasy and Top 100 in overall books, as well as making it on the reading list for foster children in the UK.

Anderson grew up throughout Alabama, lived and worked in New York for years and recently made a home with his wife and son in Pensacola, Florida. He’s currently working on the next three planned books for The Godling Chronicles.
