Exiles by Daniel Blythe - Book Tour


Book Blurb

In a distant galaxy, Bethany Kane has cheated death.
Now, she has to fight for life.

In an escape pod launched from a great starship, 15-year-old ChapterSister Bethany Aurelia Kane, believer in the Great Power, makes landfall on a windswept world known as The Edge – a planet light years from civilisation.

Battered and shaken, Beth soon finds she is not alone. The Edge is a penal colony where, under the leadership of Zachary Tal, fifty juvenile criminals and reprobates have pulled together a kind of society. They are living and working together in Town, a converted scientific base in the shadow of their crashed spaceship. They have crops, fresh water and electrical power – and are assisted by a contingent of mechanised Drones.

Storms, power failure, illness and death are just a few of the challenges the teenage exiles battle. As Beth accustoms herself to her new life on The Edge, she has to overcome her fears, learn new skills and earn the respect of leader Zach, the arrogant Colm, the resentful Mia and the others. But when a terrible, violent event shatters the colony’s existence, it seems nothing will ever be the same. Who among them is a killer? And just how isolated are they really?...

As the clock ticks towards a final revelation, Beth needs all her new skills and resourcefulness to stop The Edge from plunging into anarchy. And she has her own secret too – one which will prove decisive in the battle for survival…

Author Interview
1. If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
Just keep writing, keep reading, believe in your work – and get as much experience of human nature as you can. You don’t know as much as you think you do!

2. Favorite childhood memory involving books?
I was a huge fan of the library, and I devoured the William books by Richmal Crompton, the Jennings books by Anthony Buckeridge and the Doctor Who novelisations. I’ve talked about them all on my YouTube channel!

3. What fantastical fictional world would you want to live in (if any) given the chance?
I always rather liked the utopian Culture in the Iain M Banks novels, but I would also like to explore (maybe not live in!) Middle Earth and the solar system of The Expanse (although one’s life expectancy there seems rather slim!).

4. Did you want to be an author when you grew up?
Absolutely. I was set on it from about the age of 5 or 6, and was always writing little ‘books’ on exercise-book paper. Some were in the form of comics, but I soon realised I could not draw. I looked at the names on the books I owned and the books I got from the library, and decided I wanted to be like these people – having writing as a job! As a teenager I got hold of Michael Legat’s legendary books on writing and my first ever Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook, which began to open my eyes to the professional side of writing.

5. Have you ever met anyone famous?
Several Doctor Whos, who are all splendid fellows, and assorted companions. A few singers and musicians just to chat to briefly, all nice people. Various actors and other writers at conventions, etc. Just people doing a job!

 6. If you were the last person on Earth, what would you do?
Look for a way off…

7. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Read widely, even in genres you may not like – you can learn from everything. Even if you read a bad book, it will help with your writing – realising what ‘bad’ is, and how it could be better, is enormously helpful in your writing process.

8. What book do you wish you had written?
Many, but one from the last 10 years which stands out is Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel.

 9. What’s a typical writing day like for you?
I try to do something first thing in the morning, which usually ends up being admin – emails or similar. I always give myself a break for Ken Bruce’s Popmaster at 10.30am! I don’t have a set number of words to do every day or week, but I do admire people who can do this. A few summers ago I experimented with getting up really early to write (5am), seeing if the early light helped, but it didn’t – I am just not a morning person at all! I often get more done very late at night.

10. If you had to pick a celebrity to cast for your main character, who would it be?
When I first started writing Exiles, Kaya Scodelario would have been ideal for Beth, but she’s a woman in her late 20s now, so things have moved on! I would have to take advice from the younger people in my family. I’m sure they could recommend someone.

11. Would you ever write under a pseudonym?
I have written as Dan Roberts, and would consider doing so again.

12. What’s one thing you’d like to say to your readers?
Thank you very much for reading my books. I know it is very hard to keep up with everything that’s out there, and writers really appreciate the support!

Magic and Mayhem by Annie Anderson - Book Blitz + Giveaway


Magic and Mayhem
Annie Anderson
(The Wrong Witch, #2)
Publication date: September 27th 2022
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

All it took was one bite.

A week ago, I was the perpetual screw up of the Bannister coven and a probationary agent for the Arcane Bureau of Investigation. Somehow, I’ve managed to get myself mated to an Acosta Alpha, pissed off my family, and gotten on the radar of a dark Fae.

As much as I’d like to bury my head in the sand, I have a badge to secure—and with a new case on my proverbial desk—a job to do. Because I’m not the first witch that the Fae has tried to steal, but I will definitely be the last.

Just as soon as I get this curse under control…

EXCERPT:

A knock came at the bathroom door. “Wren, honey? You all right?”

I whipped that door open so fast an avalanche of steam billowed out of the bathroom to smack Fiona in the face. I hadn’t seen her since Serreno hauled me to Nico’s cabin for questioning. She appeared far better than the last time I’d seen her, all healed up by the med clinic and in fresh clothes.

Wrapping her in a hug, I was glad I’d managed to get dressed before her knock. “What are you doing here? Shouldn’t you be resting?”

“And let you take that fool test by yourself? Please.”

Shoving her away, I gripped her shoulders with a little too much gusto. “What? No. Please don’t tell me Serreno is making you test out, too.”

Fiona frowned before giving me a winning smile. “If I want the charges against Girard to stick and a real investigation to be had into this place, then the both of us need to be agents, Wren. It just makes sense for us to do it now. Plus, it’ll be a snap.” She waved a hand as if it was so simple as she plopped onto the edge of the couch. “Hannah told me you blew them out of the water during your practical.”

But Fiona was forgetting a particularly important facet of that event—not that she was around for it, but whatever. Namely, the null ward I wore around my neck like my own personal good luck charm. It kept me from fucking up—kept everyone safe.

And to save us, I’d tossed it away. To save her.

How was Nico going to get me a new one? He didn’t have time to trek down to Savannah and back. How was I going to pass this damn thing? Luck and blind optimism? I hadn’t been lucky a day in my life.

“What about when Nico saved you?” Fiona replied to the thoughts I must have said aloud. “That seems pretty lucky to me. Of all the people to pull you from the burning wreckage of Azalea Apothecary, you got the super-hot shifter dreamboat with the giant dick and an unrelenting urge to keep you safe. If that ain’t luck, I don’t know what is.”

“Whoa, who told you he had a giant dick?” Yes, that was what I latched onto, and yes, that sentence actually came out of my mouth.

Fi speared me with a sharp glare. “No one had to tell me that boy is packing a damn cannon in those pants. He just walks like he’s got a monster in there. Like I told you before, I’ve got eyes, don’t I?”

She wasn’t wrong.
