#GuestPost ~ Aaron Hodges #author of Warbringer (Descendants of the Fall Book 1) #Fantasy @rararesources

As part of the book birthday blitz, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources, I have a guest post from Aaron Hodges about travelling and fantasy writing

So if you don’t know too much about me, probably the first thing you should know is that I’m a traveller. In the last six years, I have spent 80% of my time outside of my home country of New Zealand, and have to date visited over 50 different nations. I love the backpacker life, the excitement of meeting new people and exploring new cities and landscapes (of course, this was all before covid19). And while this lifestyle is only possible because I am lucky enough to have a job as a writer that allows me to work from anywhere, I’ve found more often than not that my travels have also helped to inspire my writing.

1917… It was inexplicable, impossible, but it had to be true–didn’t it? When two young cousins, Frances Griffiths and Elsie Wright from Cottingley, England, claim to have photographed fairies at the bottom of the garden, their parents are astonished.

One hundred years later… When Olivia Kavanagh finds an old manuscript in her late grandfather’s bookshop she becomes fascinated by the story it tells of two young girls who mystified the world.

Being familiar with, and fascinated by, the story of the Cottingley fairies, I was looking forward to Hazel Gaynor’s re-imagining of this incredible tale based on true events. I wasn’t disappointed.

#Extract & #GuestPost from Carol Roberts ~ debut #author of Atlantis @authorRobertsC #Myth

I’m delighted to welcome Carol Roberts to the blog today, with a guest post and extract from her debut novel, Atlantis. Before I hand you over to Carol, here’s the book info.

When Alanthea, high-priestess of Atlantis, connects to a woman in her dreams, she becomes haunted by a mystery. Compelled to trace the other woman’s life she finds coded poems that hold clues to the predicament of her people. Now she has to venture ever farther into forbidden territory to link past and present, and understand the real danger threatening Atlantis.

Arakon always thought of himself as an orphan, a loner without any real belonging. But after a strange encounter his life changes, and he is drawn into events beyond his control. 

They move parallel in their search for answers until their destinies converge, and the weave unravels. Yet what they finally uncover lies deep at the heart of collective evolution, and what has been set in motion cannot be undone.
