My thoughts on writing craft, self-publishing, and great story-telling.

Plus ‘In Conversation With …’ - a series of interviews with incredible authors.

In Conversation With … Esme Carmichael, author of ‘The End of Everything’ | 4 January 2021

‘Can you hear the music? Listen to it sing …’

It has been 183 years since Mason destroyed the Old World, terraforming it into a beautiful, frozen tundra which he claims with tyrannical sovereignty.

In the midst of this New World, Alira is a wanted woman, running from Mason and his sadistic minions. Forced to hide her true identity, Alira must survive the darkest, cruellest forms of humanity as she searches for the truth of who, and what she is. Why is she prophesised to destroy the world, why is she known as The End of Everything? And why, when Mason can kill with a single stare, does she want to look into his eyes?

‘A young phoenix will arise from the ashes of a fallen world.’

Living a simple, rustic life in a quiet mountain village, Diarmuid never expected to be thrown into the midst of conflict. But when his home is razed by a band of evil creatures seeking to take him alive, he finds himself key to a legacy of cruelty and evil that was set in motion eons ago.


In Conversation With … Rosalyn Briar, author of  ‘A Sea of Pearls & Leaves’ | 1 December 2020

‘Death makes life beautiful.’

Princess Ingrid of Norella Isle does not want to get married. So, her priestess girlfriend, Lilura, devises a wicked plot to deter suitors with a nearly impossible marriage contract: should Ingrid die first, her husband must be buried at sea beside her.
