Hello from the author J.W. Baccaro
Not positive if anybody will see this, care to see this or even “like” this. Still, promotion is expensive, a gamble, and is tough. So, I’m posting this… Everyday I look at my books on Amazon, curious about new reviews, good or bad, I’m ever curious. I’m always hoping someone will love my work. You know, one doesn’t just wake up one day, scribble out a story and hope it will sell. It takes a long…LONG time to become excellent at your craft, and still, there will be others who will not care for it or try to bring you down. But when someone does like/love it, it melts my heart. As a creator/writer/aspiring author, you put SO MUCH time and effort into your story, hoping it will be discovered one day, at least by a select few. Okay, a select 10,000. That would be nice. But whenever I receive an unbiased, “organic” review that is positive, it makes me feel so good. Like someone looked into my heart, saw my story and my journey, and also loved it. I’ve done this for a while now. The originals back in 2010 had promise, but still, they lacked good covers and editing. I’ve gotten much better since then. These books have always been my babies. I pour everything out into them. So, every time I see that somebody new likes/loves and rates them high, it pleases me ever so much. I often wish the original readers back from 2010 would see the new, revised versions. They are superior to the originals. I’ve learned a lot in 10 years. And I just hope my work makes its way to somebody who would give me a chance. The books surprise you (coming from reviewers) You think the story will go one way, but it doesn’t, and the surprises, battles, slight romantic elements, and inspiration makes for an incredible read. Whatever the case, I’m happy, happy I’ll have a legacy to leave behind for the best thing in my life, my son, Alex.
Creepy/humorous story, which takes place right up here in upstate NY.
(UNRELATED to my Guardian Trilogy)
First two books in my Guardian Trilogy
And the third book—the finale in my Guardian trilogy, and IMO my best work…coming soon:
Author J.W. Baccaro
J.W. Baccaro is the author of Prophecy of the Guardian, The Coming of the Light and Blood Dreams. Always a lover of creativity, from works of literature to writing music with his electric guitar; even baking and cooking. When not working on his next story or lost in a good book, J.W. enjoys kicking back with a couple of tasty craft beers and binging on Kaiju movies, 80’s action flicks, Japanese animation and slasher films (particularly the one involving a hockey mask).

Prophecy of the Guardian: Guardian Trilogy, Book 1
Ultimate edition. Includes map of Seventh-Realm Earth, character and creature list.
“Not darkness, not light, perhaps something in between, and is claimed by the darkness…as theirs. Though being saved by the light, that which is saved must in turn save the world…”
Darshun Luthais has never experienced the Nasharin Frenzy—the unbending will to challenge a stronger opponent, no matter the cost. He doesn’t know what he will transform into, has never bonded with an elemental crystal and has never seen any of the unearthly creatures his father talks about. Even though he’s an infant in Nasharin years, his life consists of nothing but constant training, striving to unlock the sleeping power his so-called accursed race is born with.
But all that changes when he is pursued by a Dream Assassin in the dead of night. What he witnesses will forever change his outlook on life and lead him on a quest only the strongest can complete.
The Coming of the Light: Guardian Trilogy, Book 2
The Wizard Crystals of the Elements have fallen into the hands of the Demon Lord Abaddon, reshaped to evil and forever corrupted they no longer can serve the Light. Abaddon now patiently waits in his northern kingdom for the coming of Saruinkai—the evening when the greatest spirits of Darkness rule the skies, and when he will unleash the power of the crystals against their own elements, sweeping destruction across the earth.
The Light’s hope now lies in the young Nasharin warrior Darshun Luthais—the chosen Guardian, for he is the key to stopping Abaddon’s black magic and end the war once and for all. But to do so he must cross over into Abaddon’s kingdom, and that means destroying the one who guards the border, a fallen angelic Throne—the secret to Asgoth’s three-hundred-year Rule and invincibility.
Led by the elvish lord Caelestias, Darshun and his companions must seek out and destroy the Throne, encounter a witch, and a horde of other vile creatures, only to stir up the entirety of Asgoth, coming face to face with them, a battle that will determine the fate of the world.
“…a sign to tell this overruling darkness that the Light is coming. Let them be the ones to try and pass through us for once. Their ungodly Rule and ways of cruelty has gone on far too long. Let them feel the terror they love to inflict in others…just this once…” ~Darshun Luthias~
When the sorrows in life outweigh the perks and you find yourself at the end of your rope, would you change it if given the chance? If one had the power to fulfill your lost dreams regardless of any consequences that may follow, would you accept?
That is the message preached to the broken-hearted by a mysterious cult called Blood Ghost. Strangely, those who accept the deal are found murdered days later. Specifically drawn to this case is Detective Caleb Powe. Above all, he feels compelled to bring the hierarchy of the cult to justice. Only, the deeper he comes to the truth the more disturbing his own reality becomes, making him question if the life he’s living belongs to someone else, someone from the past.
I have read Prophecy of the Guardian when it was first released and a five book series. It was amazing then and I am so looking forward to reading the books again after all the edits. The covers have been updated and look so amazing. I’ve also read Blood Dreams and it too is an amazing and thought provoking read.
These fantasies are for adults and if you enjoy fantasy with intense worlds, descriptive and detailed battles, in-depth characters that will absolutely get under your skin, you will love J.W. Baccaro.
