Author Query – Peter C. Harley & Giveaway

petercharley-underherumbrellaLast month Austin Macauley published Peter C. Harley’s debut novel Under Her Umbrella. It looked like an interesting thriller and I was curious to ask the author some questions. Peter agreed to be interviewed and you can find the result below. Additionally, the publisher has made it possible for me to run a giveaway for my readers, which you can find at the bottom of the post. Enjoy this Author Query!

***

Let’s start with the basics. Who is Peter C. Harley?

Peter C. Harley has a degree in Surveying and works in the residential property development sector. He lives alone and has one daughter who is severely autistic. Under Her Umbrella is his first novel, although he has plenty more ideas and his second is well on the way. His main interest is writing about the interconnections, intersections and interrelationships of the journey through life.  Read More …

Author Query – Ruth Downie + Giveaway

Cover Image Vita BrevisHistorical crime fiction is my jam — well one of them — and while I mostly read books set later in history, I have a soft spot for books with a Roman setting. Ruth Downie’s Medicus series featuring Gaius Ruso is one that I wasn’t familiar with, but given that Vita Brevis is the seventh book in the series, I’ve got some catching up to look forward to. Today, I’m happy to be part of the Vita Brevis blog tour with an interview with Ruth and a giveaway for a copy of the book. I hope you enjoy Ruth’s answers as much as I did and do check out the other stops on the blog tour.   Read More …

julieczerneda-thisgulfoftimeandstarsToday I get to bring you a great interview with Julie Czerneda. I haven’t (yet) read anything by Julie, but she’s a name I’ve seen around bookshops and blogs for years and I plan on one day rectifying my unfamiliarity with her work. Julie has been writing in the world of The Clan Chronicles for almost twenty years and This Gulf of Time and Stars is the start of the trilogy that will wrap up the stories that started with A Thousand Words for Stranger. To celebrate the launch of her latest book, Julie is doing a blog tour and I was honoured to host her on A Fantastical Librarian for an Author Query.

Guest Post: Christian Schoon on Pets in the LSA + Giveaway [Blog Tour]

namelessstarstourbannerWelcome to the twelfth blog tour stop on the Under Nameless Stars blog tour. Today you’ll not only find the next question in the giveaway competition, but also a guest post from Christian. When I read Zenn Scarlett last year I fell in love with Katie, the rikasett and some of the other animals in the Ciscan cloister on Mars where Zenn lives. Coupled with Christian work in horse rescuing, it triggered the following question:

Almost every little girl and many boys go through a horse-mad phase at some point in their life. What would be the equivalent in Zenn’s world? Would it be the rikasett or is there another animal that every child goes mad for?

Below you can find Christian’s answer to that question and the giveaway competition.  Read More …
