Meet the Author

If imagination was a mutant power, DaVaun Sanders could have enrolled at 1407 Graymalkin Lane. Instead, he went the safe route and earned a Bachelor's degree from Washington University in St. Louis in 2002. He eventually acquiesced to the student loan gods and took up architecture in Phoenix. Yet his passion for the field faded as he spent more free time writing and performing spoken word poetry.

The Seedbearing Prince began as a dream vivid enough to play like a movie trailer. Deciding to write the debut novel took some time, as it wasn't part of "The Plan," but the housing market collapse forced DaVaun's small design firm under in 2008. He decided to plunge into writing full-time, and is loving every minute of it. When the keyboard cramps his fingers, DaVaun gets lost in the great outdoors of Arizona or hits up open mic spots in the Valley. He responds to email from fans, but postcards are even better!

DaVaun is currently hard at work editing Part II of The Seedbearing Prince. Follow him on Twitter and like on Facebook for updates and giveaways!

    Wow! Good read, quality artwork, very surprised!

    I'm gonna step out of my element more in search of AA writters and story arcs. I love graphic novels of all types in general but I have to admit that I never sought out work from AA's. A random Facebook add flew by my newsfeed and I'm glad I decided to check it out. I'm certainly going to get part 2 and if Barnes and Noble features more work in this genre I'll certainly support this quality of work. Well done.

    The Seedbearing Prince by author DaVaun Sanders is a Young adult

    The Seedbearing Prince by author DaVaun Sanders is a Young adult/Teen fantasy/sci-fi novel. I thought it was amazing! I almost read it in one night (took 2). It was truly above and beyond anything I expected to read. I’m not going to act like this book was perfect (what one is?) But one thing is for sure and that is DaVaun Sanders can write! I felt like I was part of a movie while reading this (btw would make a great one, or a TV series…). There were so many characters it was hard to keep track of them all, and some only seemed to be there for the sake of being there (not really fleshed out or made individual). But the MC’s were very well done, and even though I have some unanswered questions, I hope the next one delves further into character development and motivations and backstory. Great editing (I notice this!!) and this was definitely an enjoyable book to get lost in. Looking forward to the next.

    I admit at first when reading this book I felt like I’d been thrown in the middle of a strange place and had to take some time to get my bearings. Like a roller coaster just taking off. But what an amazing ride it was! Once I was fully immersed in the story, I found it hard to put the book down. Although there are some familiar fantasy elements here, the author puts such a unique spin on everything that it feels refreshingly original. If I had one gripe, and unfortunately for me it’s kind of a big one, I wasn’t a fan of how it ended. I understand the reasoning and will absolutely be getting the next book, but I would have preferred to have more resolution. Otherwise a fantastic read that I recommend to anyone who likes a well-written fantasy adventure tale.

    The Seedbearing Prince was the first book I¿ve read from the aut

    The Seedbearing Prince was the first book I’ve read from the author DaVaun Sanders, but I assure you it won’t be the last! If the next one were out I’d be reading it right this minute! I’ve read many, many YA fantasy novels by indie authors over the past several years and I can say with all certainty that this novel ranked up there among the very best of them. Mr. Sanders writes with confidence and utilizes great word economy. I appreciated how detailed the world-building and characters were without being weighed down with excessive purple descriptions (a common flaw I find in this genre). Dayn is a likable character and it is great to see the events unfold (for the most part) from his perspective. This novel is a great addition to the YA fantasy genre, and I think adults will enjoy it too! It is a quite lengthy book, but it is worth the read.

    **********************FANTASTIC FREEBIE!!!!*********************

    **********************FANTASTIC FREEBIE!!!!************************
    Dayn Ro’Halan lives in the world of Shard working on his family farm. He dreams of “offworld adventure” and wants to race in the torrent. This opening reminded me a bit of Star Wars, but in a great way. From the very first pages of this book to the last the story flowed smoothly with a functioning, cohesive plot. I can’t stand when an epic fantasy adventure meanders all over the place with no coherent central focus. As with any fantasy novel sometimes the names can get a bit confusing, but they are fun to read. Mr. Sanders style of writing is clear and intelligent, and this was a surprisingly easy read, and gripped my imagination in a way that few novels have done for me lately. His effortless prose reads like one from a seasoned pro. My only real complaint is that I don’t have the next one already, and that’s pretty brutal considering how the book ends. “The Seedbearing Prince” could easily find a nice home on any bookstore shelf and hold its own. Clean enough for younger readers, and exciting and intelligent enough for older ones.
