Chasing Graves by Ben Galley – Cover Reveal & Guest Blog

Chasing Graves by Ben Galley – Cover Reveal & Guest Blog 

I’m a firm believer that cover art is part and parcel of the book – conjoined twins impossible to separate. The cover plays an important role. It represents the words inside a book, communicates genre, indicates quality, and is ultimately responsible for attracting the eye of the reader. It’s got a vital job, and although […]

Fantasy Worldbuilding: From the Bottom Up – Guest Blog by Cameron Johnston

Fantasy Worldbuilding: From the Bottom Up – Guest Blog by Cameron Johnston 

Falling down wiki-holes of research in the cause of plausible worldbuilding, and why magic shit is such an important resource. We’ve all seen those hefty articles on building fantasy worlds, the ones that discuss how to draw maps and invent the geography, trade and economies, the details of rulers, peoples and politics, and of course […]

Locked Up Abroad: Lessons From the Streets of Fantasy – Guest Blog by K. S. Villoso

Locked Up Abroad: Lessons From the Streets of Fantasy – Guest Blog by K. S. Villoso 

You ever wonder if a fantasy novel can actually help you survive in a real life situation? I don’t mean teach you about sword-fighting and how to slay dragons, or brew your own magic potions to help you teleport out of dicey situations. I’m talking about something more realistic, such as how to survive in […]

Don’t Show, Don’t Tell – Guest Blog by K. C. Alexander

Don’t Show, Don’t Tell – Guest Blog by K. C. Alexander 

We’ve heard it, right: “show, don’t tell.” A four-word reminder to make sure your work is rich with description, follow-through, actions rather than (in a non-literal sense) words. But what about “don’t show, don’t tell?” (Not to be mistaken for outdated military doctrine.) Stick with me, kid, it gets way more interesting. And it starts […]

Red Season Rising by Dominick Murray – Cover Reveal 

I’m so excited to finally reveal the new cover for Red Season Rising. I’ve been sitting on this cover image for a few weeks, and I’m telling you, it has been so difficult for me not to just press ‘go’ on the reveal until now! I first published Red Season Rising in September 2016, and […]

What is Orctober? 

Howdy, y’all. I’m Ashe Armstrong, author of the Grimluk, Demon Hunter series. Welcome to Orctober. I know some of you are probably asking just what the hell that is. And if you’re not, I’m going to pretend you are because it’s central to writing this little thing. Did I make a typo? Is it some […]

The Kaladin Book Soundtrack based on The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – Call To Action 

Sometimes, when you work in entertainment, you take the gigs that will feed you. Sometimes, you take the gigs that inspire you. Sometimes, the gig pays off. Rarely, a gig can change your life. The Kaladin book soundtrack (inspired by The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson) saved mine. Literally. None of us at The […]

Keeping the Fun in Science Fiction – Guest Blog by Joseph Brassey

Keeping the Fun in Science Fiction – Guest Blog by Joseph Brassey 

Islands sit suspended in an endless heaven, drifting amidst clouds and storms, high above a distant abyss below. Cities crouch upon the edges of cliffs, their walls jutting out into the empty air, and enchanted skycraft hurtle through the heavens, their magnificent wings catching the light of sunsets as the blue-white glow of their exhaust […]

How The Belgariad Taught Me To Write A Cyberpunk Dystopia – Guest Blog by Ferrett Steinmetz

How The Belgariad Taught Me To Write A Cyberpunk Dystopia – Guest Blog by Ferrett Steinmetz 

Full confession: I thought my new novel The Uploaded was a dystopian novel about the miseries that happen five hundred years after humanity perfects brain-uploading. But my publisher Angry Robot told me it was something different. “You wrote a cyberpunk family drama, Ferrett!” I looked up, baffled, from my chocolate milk – the only drink […]
