Welcome to StoryHeaven.com
Welcome to the site! Story Heaven is simply a compilation of favorites: favorite authors, favorite books, favorite series, favorite stories.
I love to talk about books, and there are no better books to talk about than the ones I love. From my favorite novels and series to my favorite characters, these pages are intended to share my love of these authors’ universes with you.
At the moment, the focus is books, but stories don’t just live in books…
I also love the stories I find in television series. TV series have a depth of stories that rival the best book series, so I do plan to add information about television stories too, over time.
See you around!

Even the loosely connected series tend to build on each other after a while, developing a depth to the overall story arc that the casual viewer won’t recognize. That’s the fun in watching a television series develop over time, following the episodes in the order created, as they were meant to be seen.
My emphasis on library building is based on the premise that the best stories are worth revisiting. Building a library of great stories, whether in print, ebook, DVD, or digital, is the best way to collect these stories.
Build your library with hardcover copies of favorites by getting them while they’re bargain books. I use this method myself by watching the releases of my favorite authors’ hardcover books.
I try to keep these updated frequently because the bargain copies sell out quickly.
I try to catch sales on DVDs, because when you do, you can get an entire season of episodes for about the price of a hard cover novel (comparable in the time it takes to watch to reading a massively long novel or a short series – about 20 hours worth).
I find video ads for books strangely appealing, so I have a section where I’ve added the video book trailers for the books of my favorites.
