• Fiona McIntosh: Voyager Author of the Month

    Fiona McIntosh was born and raised in Sussex in the UK, but also spent early childhood years in West Africa. She left a PR career in London to travel and settled in Australia in 1980. She has since roamed the world working for her own travel publishing company, which she runs with her husband. She lives in Adelaide with her husband and twin sons. Her website is at www.fionamcintosh.com.

    Her latest book, The Scrivener's Tale, is a stand-alone and takes us back to the world of Morgravia from her very first series, The Quickening:


    About The Scrivener's Tale:

    In the bookshops and cafes of present-day Paris, ex-psychologist Gabe Figaret is trying to put his shattered life back together. When another doctor, Reynard, asks him to help with a delusional female patient, Gabe is reluctant... until he meets her. At first Gabe thinks the woman, Angelina, is merely terrified of Reynard, but he quickly discovers she is not quite what she seems.

    As his relationship with Angelina deepens, Gabe's life in Paris becomes increasingly unstable. He senses a presence watching and following every move he makes, and yet he finds Angelina increasingly irresistible.

    When Angelina tells Gabe he must kill her and flee to a place she calls Morgravia, he is horrified. But then Angelina shows him that the cathedral he has dreamt about since childhood is real and exists in Morgravia.

    A special 10th Anniversary edition of her first fantasy book, Myrren's Gift, will be released in December!

     

     

Chat with Kim Falconer in August!

Book One of Quantum EncryptionFANGtastic say: We’re absolutely delighted to announce that we have launched our Fangtastic chat room where visiting authors will answer your questions, discuss their books and generally have fun with topics about writing.

We’re incredibly excited and have some terrific authors already lined up …. but for our inaugural Fang Chat our guest host is the wonderful Kim Falconer, author of the fascinating Quantum Enchantment trilogy and Quantum Encryption, her new series being released on 1st August with book one, Path of the Stray). When not writing, Kim runs an astrology forum and alternative science site (and trains with a sword so beware!) so we thought that it would be appropriate to have our very first chat at the time of the next new moon …. so on Tuesday August 10,at 8pm Aust EST when the moon is new in Leo (perfect for such a social, creative ventures) come and join us for our very first Fang Author Chat.

Many of you might know Kim from her books, from Twitter or maybe from her great comments on our competition blogs, so you’ll know that we can expect a lot of fun with this chat. However if you don’t yet know her, well let’s just say that her chosen topic for the chat is Sex and the SF Fantasy writer – otherwise known as “Blood Honey Sex Magic” and you’ll get the picture that we’re going to be in for a lot of laughs, some no doubt risque and inappropriate comments and an insight into a rather challenging aspect of contemporary writing. Yep Kim’s ready to get down and dirty on a topic often overlooked and easily misunderstood in both genre and literary fiction.

In fact, when describing this topic to us Kim wrote ……

If you think writing sex is simply a matter of describing an image from the Kama Sutra and adding “oh yeah, do it to me baby!” this chat is for you.

This is going to be such fun, so bring your opinions, ideas and questions along – we hope that you can join us!
