Bedsocks & Broomsticks – Chapter 1
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 – Winnie Winkle
This month, I caught up with author Winnie Winkle to talk about the inspiration for her books and chat about her series. Winnie, tell us a bit about yourself. First and foremost, I’m a water baby. Which, as a Pisces living on a boat in Florida, helps. I grew up in the US MidWest on and around lakes, but once I moved to Florida thirty some years ago, I knew the sea was my element. In my tiny condo in Daytona Beach Shores, I’m a horizon junkie, in love with the thin line between now and next. On the boat, we’re anchored seven miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico…
Author Interview – Heather G Harris
So, Heather, I know you from a UK writers group we’re part of, but for those who don’t know you, tell us about yourself. I am a thirty something mum getting a second chance at life. I was a lawyer. That was great, it helped people but… it was super stressful. And my bosses wouldn’t let me work flexible hours or pick up my kids from school, which sucked. Writing became my retreat during the pandemic. I hit publish and a year later I’m incredibly lucky that it is now my actual job. It’s a weird job, you basically invite people to have a snoop around in your mind. So…
The latest Rise of the Dragons book is here!
Book 6 – Fated Bloodlines is now available on amazon! I love this cover! And the series has been described as Bridget Jones meets Lord of the Rings – which I think is an awesome description! No weapons, no wedding! Hunted by an enemy, can she survive or will it end in fire and blood? After Lorandir proposes, Amethyst thinks she’s finally getting her happy ever after…until she’s summoned to the Dwarven Arms Council and has to navigate the dwarven city with an elf fiancé in tow. Caught between trying to survive ancient prejudices, an unknown attacker and the weird world of wedding planning, she must confront an old enemy…
Author Interview – KJ Baker
This month, I caught up with paranormal romance author KJ Baker about her books: So, KJ Baker, tell me about yourself Witty? Charming? Seriously? Okay, since I’m a writer I suppose I should talk about writing? OK OK, how did you become a writer? I don’t ever remember making a conscious decision to become a writer. It’s just something I’ve always done, as though it’s written into my DNA. I wrote my first book when I was six years old – complete with home-made cover made from a cereal box. It was called The Golden Pheasant and was awesome! (at least in the mind of a six year old girl).…
The latest Rise Of The Dragons book is here!
Book 5: Attack on Avalon is out now! And check out the cover – this might be my favourite one yet! Can she survive an ancient evil or will it end in fire and blood? New boyfriend, new flat; Amethyst’s life is going well. Until she’s ported into the mystical realm of Avalon where she must battle an ancient enemy to protect the known universe. If you like sarcasm, magic and British settings, you’ll enjoy this book.
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…
Christmas Short Story
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…
Author Interview – Wayne Turmel
A couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to be part of a clubhouse group with Jamie Davis and he introduced me to Wayne Turmel. At the time Wayne was venturing into the murky world of urban fantasy fiction. Now his first book in the genre is published, I caught up with him for a chat. So Wayne, over to you. Tell us about yourself… I’m a writer and speaker who lives in Las Vegas. I was a standup comedian for almost 20 years, which brought me from Canada to the US where I met The Duchess, 30 years later, here I am. I’ve written 14 books, most of…
