He turned his attention to fiction during the summer of 2009. Armed with an A4 pad and ballpoint pen he unleashed a stream of consciousness — some 40,000 words before drawing a breath. The writing experience with such unbridled passion was new to him: a far cry from technical authoring. The excitement of not knowing where it was going but having an evolving story with a host of characters spurred him on. The Hole Opportunity was the product of his imagination and the first in a series of titles to be completed. The Unexpected Consequences of Iron Overload followed a year later. This book, paranormal, spoof thriller, was written to raise awareness of a genetic medical condition, Haemochromatosis, and to raise funds for the Haemochromatosis Society. James has the condition.

Born 1952 in Oxfordshire, UK, James draws on his local knowledge to provide inspiration and settings for his characters, locations for his plots, and the mid-twentieth century for his historic anchors.

He is currently writing book three of the Hole Trilogy — Marmite Makes a Sandwich, Dynamite Makes a Hole, and continues to raise funds/awareness for Hemochromatosis, as well as sharing his experiences of self-publishing and self-promotion with other indie authors via his website, blog and participating in various writing forums.

Fully behind the notion of self-publishing, James is very conscious of quality and professionalism incumbent on all authors to give his readers the best experience he can. To this end he is a Professional Member of the Alliance of Independent Authors.

I am a small woman of moderate consequence who writes many, many literary fantasy books involving giants, romance, and chocolate. I’m a rather boring woman in life, but that only gives me permission to be more interesting on the page. I’m meant to be read and not seen anyway. I am also excessively sarcastic, but never serious, and I do my utmost to be as quiet and polite as possible when being forced to leave the commons. I adore people, but am not fond of the public. Such is an author’s burden: to be a hermit and a crone, blessed with all the joys of unquietness.

I have been writing since grade 4. The very first story I wrote was about cat people and it was rather atrocious, but from there I moved on to writing novels. I wrote my first novel in grade 7, which was a historical fantasy about Irish immigrants coming to Ellis Island. It was also quite horrid, but here is where I began to understand the discipline of writing every day. I wrote in class, out of class, at home, while I was supposed to be studying, on my washroom floor, in the attic, etc. Eventually, I won some prestigious old thing for best story and then won four literary awards in my county. I then decided to study creative writing in university only to realize that the best way to learn about writing is to write. In 2001, I began writing a series called “The Arustan Series”, which was all about the Eastern Continent. I wrote about ten books in the series, all of which were never completed due to the endless blockades of attending classes and having three jobs, and ended up publishing a few fantasy short stories with The.Gloaming Magazine. This work was important, however, as it provided a backbone for majority of the races in all my later writing.

Holiday season 2009/2010 the recession came, and I like many others was laid off. My editor at the time said to me, “You cannot look for work now anyhow. So, why don’t you use this time to write something new?” By then, I hadn’t written anything in six months, the longest period I have ever gone without writing. I decided to write short stories about a farmer, a giant and his four brothers (everything has forever been giants with me), and within six months, I had written over 700 stories and five books worth of material. I knew I had something, even though I had little idea what, and I began querying agents and publishers to see what they thought of what I began calling “The Haanta Series”. The reviews were generally positive and decided that I was going to have this series published. Six months later, I had rewritten “The Commander and the Den Asaan Rautu”, book one in the series, and sent it out for publishing. A few publishers accepted the series, but I went with a small press that was willing to let me have my own editor and artist, and that was willing to publish a book every two months.

I write excessively fast, mostly because my mind never rests and partly because I have insomnia, fibromyaglia, acute schizophrenia (writer’s schizophrenia), and dyslexia, which always help things along. I compose about six to ten thousand words in a 10-16 hour period. Many ask me how I write so much in a day, and my answer is invariably, “I don’t know.” It doesn’t seem like much until I have finished another two or three books. Writing is the most natural thing in the world to me and is possibly the only thing at which I’m tolerably skilled. Perhaps this is why I write as much as I do; I cannot do anything else.

It is not easy being an author. Besides the little recognition and meager pay, we require solitude, peacefulness, the ability to make our own hours, and sometimes caffeine. Having support helps, but even then there is no making anyone understand you. I have been fortunate enough to have found a collaborator as confused by reality as I am. We create together, we have delusions of grandeur together, and most importantly: we live in the same other world. I do not tell her what to draw, and she does not tell me what to write (she tries, but I ignore her). It is through this mutual respect we have for one another’s art that we have become successful in what we do. Hardship and struggle is forever softened when shared.

Many readers ask me about my influences. My earliest influence was David Eddings. My principal put Pawn of Prophecy in my hand in grade 11, and there began my infatuation with High Fantasy. Jane Austen is probably my most notable influence. After reading Persuasion and thinking it the most brilliant book ever written, I proceeded to read all of Jane’s publications backward, starting with Sandition and ending with Northanger Abbey, Lady Susan, and her Juvenlia. Emma and Mansfield Park are my other two favourites of hers, and Pride and Prejudice is actually my least favourite of all her works. T.H. White is another of my great influences. The Ill-Made Knight is the most astonishing romantic fantasy ever written and the most exceptional retelling of the relationship between Arthur, Lancelot, and Guinevere. Candle in the Wind, White’s fourth book in the Once and Future King series, is the only book to ever make me break out in tears with every turn of the page. Paul Creswick, author of Robin Hood and Greypaws is another notable influence. Due to most of his books being out of print, only classics collectors like myself might know his works. Robert E.Howard has fed my infatuation for giants, barbarians, and Sword and Sorcery for some time; Conan the Barbarian and The Sword Woman are some of my very favourite anthologies. 岸本 斉史 (Kishimoto Masashi) as well is another influence, mainly in that his work with Shounen Jump convinced me that literary serials are an art that must be revived.

Many people ask me about my writing style and for advice. My writing has a more classical feel -or so I’m told- because most of the books I read were published before 1950. I have an abominable time with recent literature, and therefore my style might reflect the style of the authors I enjoy most.. As for advice, I should never wish to give any. Every writer is different, and what works for one person may not work for another. I write books out of order and write at least two to three books at once. This is what does for me, whereas writing in linear format does for other authors very well. I write the books that I would most enjoy reading. There are various obstacles authors must overcome that are part of the process, such as rejection, ridicule, time spent on book promotion, being forced to go outside, but tenacity, the willingness to learn and rewrite, and unshakable passion have done well for me as I hope they might do well for others.

Hello there, I’m M T McGuire. I grew up half way up a down but now I live in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk with my family and a huge, hairy cat called Chewbacca.

I write humorous fantasy fiction. If I came to stay at your house, I’d be the one who checks the wardrobe in your spare room for a gateway to Narnia. That’s probably all you need to know about me really.

If you’ve read my writing, thank you, I hope you enjoyed it.

Alex Hunter was born in the early nineteen-sixties, when that was still considered the fashionable thing. He discovered the joys of story telling and creative writing at school, where his talents in that area were widely acknowledged.  He started to write his first novel, Through Eyes of Gold at the age of twenty-two (an historical fantasy novel charting the ‘life’ of a gold ring, from the discovery of the nugget by an ancient Egyptian miner, through to its ownership in nineteen-thirties England). After completing the first thirty pages, he foolishly got a job, and this really interfered with the creative process for the next fifteen years.

First and foremost I am a mother. It may be somewhat old-fashioned to say this in this day and age, but I feel more fulfilled by my children’s happiness than I ever had doing anything else. My children have been the main engine of my personal growth through the joys and challenges of parenting. My professional career has flowered in the software industry. I started at R&D and moved on, taking position as senior manager and later as independent entrepreneur. The path of my professional career was not always full of roses, but it was always educating, even exhilarating at times and I was completely engrossed in it until my first child was born. Having a child is a life changing event. Having another one, is… well, two life-changing events. My life was suddenly filled with a whole new set of challenges, joys and experiences. Being a mother means being there fully committed to care for someone else. In the first couple of years I was still sure I can do everything – be a great mother and continue to work 24/7, and then I got wiser. So now, first and foremost I am a mother. I am very involved in my children’s lives, they tell me about their hopes, secrets and fears, they share their challenges, successes and frustrations. Usually I trust them to find their own way, at other times I know I have to teach them a new way, a new tool to use in their journey through life. My first book – “A Wonderful Day To Smile And To Dare” is an example of such tool, inspired by a process I have developed to help my kids to deal with fears and inhibiting thoughts. Watching my children grow, learn and find their way in life – is the most beautiful, fulfilling project I was ever involved in.

Sex in the Title by Zack Love

The Indie Book of the Day for 1st of April, 2014!

Genre: Romance, Humor

New York City, May 2000. The Internet bubble has burst and Evan, a computer programmer, is fired with an email from his boss. The next day, his girlfriend dumps him, also via email. Afraid to check any more emails, Evan desperately seeks a rebound romance but the catastrophes that ensue go from bad to hilariously worse.

Fortunately, Evan meets Sammy — someone whose legendary disasters with females eclipse even his own. To reverse their fortunes, they recruit their friends — Trevor, Yi, and Carlos — to form a group of five guys who take on Manhattan in pursuit of dates, sex, and adventure.

When Evan, a closet writer, falls desperately in love with a Hollywood starlet, he schemes to meet her by writing a novel that will sweep her off her feet. Sammy knows nothing about publishing but is confident of one thing: Evan’s book should have the word “sex” in the title.

With musings about life, relationships, and human psychology, this quintessential New York story about the search for happiness follows five men on their comical paths to trouble, self-discovery, and love.

Zack Love graduated from Harvard College, where he tried to create a bachelor’s degree in Women. With the bachelor portion of that degree in hand, he settled in New York City but – to afford renting his bed-sized studio – found himself flirting mostly with a computer screen and stacks of documents. Determined not to die a corporate drone, Zack decided to sacrifice sleep for screenwriting, an active social life, and Internet startups offering temporary billion-dollar fantasies.

To feed his steady diet of NYC nightlife, he regularly crashed VIP parties in the early 2000s and twice bumped into his burgeoning crush, a Hollywood starlet. But – much to Zack’s surprise – neither of those awkward conversations led to marriage with the A-list actress. Zack eventually consoled himself by imagining fiascoes far worse than those involving his celebrity crush. In the process, he dreamed up a motley gang of five men inspired by some of his college friends and quirky work colleagues. And thus was born “Sex in the Title.” But the novel is not autobiographical: Zack never had his third leg attacked by any mammal (nor by any plant, for that matter). In fact, keeping his member safe has been one of Zack’s lifelong goals – and one of the few that he’s managed to accomplish.

Genre: Romance, Humor

He’s deliciously handsome and completely arrogant. Exactly the last thing Ava needs on her first night out following her bad breakup.

New to the Philadelphia area, Trevor is instantly taken with Ava’s beauty and witty attitude. After sharing an unexpected but amazing kiss, Trevor manages to stick his foot in his mouth and watches as Ava walks out of his life before he has a chance to explain.

When the two unexpectedly cross paths again, they struggle with the undeniable chemistry between them. Ava fights to keep it platonic, afraid to get hurt again, as Trevor sets out to change her mind. 

With a little bit of humor, a lot of drama, sexual frustration, dancing and plenty of alcohol, Ava realizes that Trevor just might actually be perfect for her.

Read Sample

Taryn discovered her love for books at an early age, spending many hours lost in someone else’s story.

It wasn’t until well into adult hood that she discovered, late at night while the house was quiet, that she had just as many stories inside her just waiting to be let out. Writing has been a way for her to step away from reality and live a bit through her fun and sometimes damaged characters. You will almost always find a Happy Ever After at the end of her stories. She can’t help it, it’s an addiction.

She’s a Southwestern girl living a Mid-Atlantic life with her husband of seventeen years and two incredible daughters who inspire her daily. She is proud to be an advocate for her child with autism, and feels incredibly blessed to be able to see the world through her eyes. Her daughters teach her more than she could ever teach them.

She enjoys reading, writing and spending time with her family, but cherishes those quiet nights after everyone is asleep when she can curl up on the couch with her fifteen year old dog. (Shh, don’t tell…He’s not supposed to be on the couch.)
