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 […]

With one SPFBO done and another to begin, I’ve taken some time to read some books I’ve been wanting to read for a while, but what with one thing, another, a tonne of my own writing, and real life in the way I never got the chance too. I know, excuses, excuses. Shawn Wickersheim’s book, […]

The Lost Puzzler by Eyal Kless – Cover Reveal

The Lost Puzzler by Eyal Kless – Cover Reveal 

There aren’t a huge amount of fantasy/science fiction hybrids and probably for good reason; it’s a very hard balance to strike.

Small Press, Big Stories: Detox In Letters by Cheryl Low – Cover Reveal and Excerpt! 

When I spoke to Sarena at World Weaver Press last year we talked about Cheryl Low’s Vanity in Dust, which I reckoned was pitched like Moorcock’s End of Time characters in a more urban fantasy setting. That sounded more than fascinating enough to get added to the TBR mountain, and now it’s time to reveal […]

Bastien Lecouffe Deharme – Artist Spotlight
