    Author Interview – Andrew Claydon

    This month, I caught up with fellow Brit fantasy author Andrew Claydon to chat about how he started writing and favourite authors. His latest book, Strange Companions, is out on 5 December and if you like reluctant heroes, irreverant fantasy references and chickens, I recommend you check it out. So, Andrew, tell us about yourself. That’s a toughie, because I can come up with all kinds of stories and characters, but ask me to talk about myself and I draw a blank. I suppose the first thing to know about me is that I’m a guy living his best life being an author. I’ve always thought I had one book…

    Read on for a sneak peek at Chapter 1 of my new release Bedsocks and Broomsticks (out on 31 October!). This is a cosy, witchy urban fantasy with a touch of mystery, set in the Cotswolds. Think Murder She Wrote meets Jam & Jerusalem meets magic…now read on: “Have you tried turning it off and then on again?” Fi kept her face neutral as she watched the young man in a suit through the video chat. “Of course I have!” “Right, OK, let me have a look,” her tone was blank, but she didn’t believe him. Her power flickered under her skin. She forced it down. Her shift was nearly…

    Author Interview – Jamie Davis

    Last year, I was lucky enough to have a short story selected for an urban fantasy anthology and I connected with one of my co-authors for his podcast to chat about magic roundabouts (you can find the show here). Now his Extreme Medical Services book is on sale ($0.99 or free in Kindle Unlimited – seriously this is a bargain people!) and I was delighted to catch up with him again. So Jamie, tell us a bit about yourself. I consider myself something of a wandering soul. I’ve done many things over the course of my life, from TV audio engineer, to mr. Mom, to paramedic, to nurse. I even…

    Spoiler alert – this short story is set after Equinox Betrayal, book 3 in the Rise of Dragons series so you might want to finish reading that first… Amethyst & Lorandir’s First Christmas Together I stalled the car as I pulled up outside my family home. Marco had leant us his ancient Volkswagen while he was back in Italy for Christmas and I had cursed the old car and its sticky windscreen wipers the whole journey. We couldn’t even listen to any decent music as the radio was permanently tuned to BBC Radio Four and I was starving after hearing about alternative Christmas roasts for the last hour. I slammed…
