Writing Journeys – Josiah Bancroft

I think it’s fair to say that Josiah Bancroft was the most unexpected success story of 2016. Missing the finals of the Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off by a hair’s breadth, his book Senlin Ascends caught the attention of Mark Lawrence. Mark loved the book, to say the least, and decided the world needed to know…. Read More…

Writing Journeys – Tom Toner

I met Tom the week that Dragon’s Blade was released back in late 2015. Coincidentally his book had been published that same week (almost to the day) and so naturally we got to talking. It’s been great having a companion of sorts on this rough adventure that is getting books out into the world. We’re… Read More…

Writing Journeys – Miles Cameron

What an honour it is to have Christian Cameron on ‘Writing Journeys’. Most of you will know him as Miles Cameron, his fantasy pen name, but Christian has been writing historical fiction for far longer. Writing in two genres presents a unique publishing and writing challenge, one which Christian has risen to meet. He’s also… Read More…

Writing Journeys – Benedict Patrick

Today we welcome Benedict Patrick to the blog – the man who is going to rewrite what we think about fairy tales. He’s also living in Scotland so he gets bonus point from me for that. Keeping this one short and sweet, so over to Ben!   Howdy, folks. My name is Benedict Patrick, author… Read More…

Writing Journeys – Michael R. Fletcher

Recently, Michael R. Fletcher lit up the fantasy enclaves of the internet with The Mirror’s Truth. Apparently, it’s pretty good. Phrases like ‘best thing I’ve read’ and ‘masterpiece’ have been brandished by reviewers and fellow authors alike. Michael’s journey in his writing is also a bit of a story in itself, and not the yellow-brick-road to authordom many… Read More…

Writing Journeys – C.L. Murray

Today we hear from C.L. Murray, author of A Facet for the Gem – a world wherein knights ride great eagles rather than measly horses. He’s become a bit of a wiz at Amazon ads and marketing, a skill many pay a small fortune just to learn. Earlier in 2016 he even secured an audio book… Read More…

Writing Journeys – Graham Austin-King

  Graham Austin-King is another inspiring person for anyone attempting the self-publishing game. Indeed, his presence has reached far enough that I found his name cropping up enough to be familiar with me long before I figured out he was an indie writer (this was a couple of years back). He’s recently completed an audio… Read More…

Writing Journeys – Steven Kelliher

Steven is a fighter turned writer wishing disputes could still be settled with a friendly game of hand-to-hand combat. To my knowledge, he’s the ‘newest’ of our writers, being the most recent to launch their debut – though not by much. And what a start he had with a solid 7/10 from FantasyFaction for his… Read More…

Writing Journeys – James Barclay

  I’m very happy to have James on the blog series. Actor, author and gentleman, James Barclay has been writing fantasy for a long time. He’s the author of the two Raven trilogies: Chronicles of The Raven and Legends of The Raven, and the epic fantasy duology, The Ascendants of Estorea. More recently James has… Read More…

Writing Journeys – J.P. Ashman

So today mark’s the end of the first batch of posts from our amazing author guests, and we’re hearing from Mr. J.P. Ashman. Much of what I considered using for my intro is reiterated by J.P. in his post, however, I will add Ashman is one of those super readers who baffles me. He’ll be… Read More…
