You’ve not been interviewed on the site before, so let’s start by telling everyone a bit about yourself.  I’m British-born, but I have lived in Australia for 8½ years now.

Double Alchemy; by Susan Mac Nicol—Blog Tour and Giveaway

Today I get to welcome my friend, Susan Mac Nicol, back to the blog. About two years ago, she and I met when she was promoting Double Alchemy, her urban fantasy series. Now, those who follow my blog know I’m a fan of fantasy, and modern day warlocks and the like are fun reads. To celebrate the two year anniversary, Susan is doing a small tour to re-introduce Cade and Quinn to the speculative fiction world.  She was gracious enough to do a short interview with me and she also has a tour giveaway. I’ll also post a review soon—I suck at reviews so getting it right without spoiling things is never easy for me, but if you’ve not read …

Fire Candidate; by Cheri Roman—Guest Post and Giveaway

In keeping with the concept that Fantasy is Fantasy, and we don’t need the LGBTQ qualifier, a fellow Fantasy writer is guesting today. Cheri Roman’s Fire Candidate is the second in her Witch of Forsythe High series. It is not an LGBTQ Fantasy series, but it is Fantasy. And while many of the books on the Land of Make Believe are LGBTQ oriented, my true passion is for Fantasy. So please welcome Cheri as she talks about – Fantasy.  Don’t forget to enter her giveaway. Fantasy The Oxford Dictionary defines the word fantasy as “the product of imagining impossible or improbable things.” That’s not a bad start for defining fantasy as a genre. However, when you have such a name, it …

Release Day Blitz – Beastly Businessmen and Guitar Gods by Asta Idonea

Release Day—Kings of Lore and Legend—Champion of the Gods, Book III

Today is release for Book III Kings of Lore and Legend. Unfortunately, this is a true series and I really need you to read Books I & II first. You can’t drop in here at this book, pick it up and really know what’s going on. Sure there is a synopsis of what has gone before, but you won’t be able to see the growth Farrell made; how much of an impact Miceral has on that development; the magic might not make sense, etc. To make it easier for you to get started on the series, I’m giving away a free copy of Book I – The Last Grand Master to everyone who wants a copy. You can get a copy by …

Mute Witness; by Rick R. Reed—Guest Post and Giveaway

A Tale of Two Covers: MUTE WITNESS The DSP Publications version of Mute Witness is its second incarnation. The book was originally published by MLR Press, with a different cover (by Deana C. Jamroz). The DSPP has been extensively re-edited and has gotten a whole new face, thanks to cover artist Aaron Anderson. I love the whole cover art process, but it always makes me wary because it’s so vital to the success of the book. After all, this is the first impression, the “face”, if you will, of the book! Which cover do you like better? Let me know (and with maybe a reason why) in the comments below. First we have the original, from MLR. Here’s what I …
