Wyrd and Wonder is going into its fifth year this May and to bring you all some early joy and excitement we are doing loads of things ahead of time. Like on our Instagram. Have you checked it out yet?
Every Saturday until May either Jorie or I will bring you a top 5 with previous posts from Wyrd and Wonder. Jorie will be focusing on previous posts from us hosts and I will be going through the masterlists of previous years to pick a few out from our participants. I won’t be able to share everything. Wish I could. But we will try and share some more through Twitter!
The very first author interview to grace Wyrd and wonder was the author interview of Jeff Noon. Done by DJ from My Life My Books My Escape.
The Body Library is the follow-up to A Man of Shadows and continues my SF Private Eye series. Each novel is set in a different city, and each city contains a different weird or fantastical element
In 2019 Kal from Reader Voracious interviewed debut author Liz Kerin.
The Phantom Forest is actually an idea that’s been lurking around in my head since I was about 12 years old. In middle school, when we were learning about ancient civilizations, we read about Mayan human sacrifice rituals and I was just horrified and mesmerized by the whole thing. I wrote a short story about a fictional society that sacrificed people to a demon, and the one girl who mysteriously survived the ritual.
The Fantasy Hive did an author spotlight on author K.M. Jenkins
A good friend of mine told me when I am feeling the muse for a specific project to stop what I am working on to write out the scene or chapters that are in my head
In 2021 The Fantasy Hive alos did an interview with author John Gwynne from The Shadow of the Gods. As you all know that is a personal favorite of mine!
Cover art is one of my favourite parts of the writing/publishing process, and I’ve been fortunate to work with people who have been more than happy to involve me in the process. A lot of discussions went back and forth between myself and my editor, James Long, over this cover, and it was a lot of fun.
And lastly in 2021 Maxine from Maxine’s Obsessions interviewed author Khaiah Thomson.
It took me a long time to put my fingers to the keys and actually give writing a go. I’d had this idea swimming around in my head for a long time, a high fantasy novel, and it was just too hard to write down.
