So you want to be an author? Awesome! Keith McArdle, author of SPFBO4 entrant Fallen Empire, the first book of the Ironstone Saga – find an excerpt at the bottom of this article – and a few other books besides has some advice for you!
All of us got pet peeves, aren’t we? My newest guest, Andy Peloquin decided to write up an article about anti-stereotypes he enjoys reading about. Let’s face it, we all like to turn our back on stereotypes and find something new and fresh wich twists these tropes we know too well.
David Hambling is a journalist, traveller, and author of several Lovecraftian horror novels. the Harry Stubbs series amongst these. He took some time off his busy schedule to answer some of my questions!
Another week, another great author gets the spotlight. This time Martin Owton treats you fine people to one of his short stories which introduces to us his The Nandor Tales series’ main character, Aron.
Megan is lovely and friendly, so I’m happy to host her on my blog today. Read about her below and take a look at the excerpt from her first novel, The Finder of the Lucky Devil in her urban fantasy series, titled Lucky Devil. Those who follow SPFBO might have seen her around since she is participating in the contest this year 🙂
Damien Black, author of the Broken Stone Chronicle series, SPFBO finalist who ended up snatching the third place thanks to the tie on the second place. Ex-journalist, ex-musician (although you can never stop being a musician deep, deep down). I’ve pretty much publicised already in my Devil’s Night Dawning review how I got to meet him and how he played a big part of my being here today, so I won’t repeat myself. Let’s just say he is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met and he made me into a sorceress, lol 🙂 He is currently being busy writing book 3 of his epic fantasy series, but took the time to answer some questions!
Amanda, like a hawk sensing its prey, swept in and took the opportunity. Which made me pretty happy, because, well, you know, I’m a music addict, so finally someone combined my two love: books and music! Amanda gives us a glimpse how she uses music during her story. This article is rather interesting, so hopefully you’ll like it as much as I do!
Today I’m hosting Jesse Teller on my blog, with a short story about music and life.
My promised second interview, which was supposed to be the first. @benedictpaddy stopped by and we’ve talked about the Yarnsworld books, writing, @CritFacedDnD and #SPFBO of course.
In my May Sneak Peek I promised two interviews. One of the gentlemen who agreed to be interrogated by me was none other than @UlffLehmann, author of Shattered Dreams. It was a fun experience 🙂
