About the Author :

TAHeLgNAJulia Ibbotson is fascinated by the medieval world and the concept of time. She sees her author brand as a historical fiction writer of romantic mysteries that are evocative of time and place, well-researched and uplifting page-turners. Her current series focuses on early medieval time-slip/dual-time mysteries. Julia read English at Keele University, England, specialising in medieval language/ literature/ history, and has a PhD in socio-linguistics. After a turbulent time in Ghana, West Africa, she became a school teacher, then a university academic and researcher. Her break as an author came soon after she joined the RNA’s New Writers’ Scheme in 2015, with a three-book deal from Lume Books (Endeavour) for a trilogy (Drumbeats) set in Ghana in the 1960s. She has published three other books, including A Shape on the Air, an Anglo-Saxon timeslip mystery, and its two sequels The Dragon Tree and The Rune Stone. Her work in progress is the first of a new series of Anglo-Saxon mysteries (Daughter of Mercia) where echoes of the past resonate across the centuries. Her books will appeal to fans of Barbara Erskine, Pamela Hartshorne, Susanna Kearsley, and Christina Courtenay. Her readers say: ‘Julia’s books captured my imagination’, ‘beautiful story-telling’, ‘evocative and well-paced storylines’, ‘brilliant and fascinating’ and ‘I just couldn’t put it down’.

Synopsis :

For fans of Barbara Erskine, Pamela Hartshorne, Susanna Kearsley, Christina Courtenay
Can echoes of the past threaten the present? They are 1500 years apart, but can they reach out to each other across the centuries? One woman faces a traumatic truth in the present day. The other is forced to marry the man she hates as the ‘dark ages’ unfold.
How can Dr Viv DuLac, medievalist and academic, unlock the secrets of the past? Traumatised by betrayal, she slips into 499 AD and into the body of Lady Vivianne, who is also battling treachery. Viv must uncover the mystery of the key that she unwittingly brings back with her to the present day, as echoes of the past resonate through time. But little does Viv realise just how much both their lives across the centuries will become so intertwined. And in the end, how can they help each other across the ages without changing the course of history?

Excerpt :

It is mid-afternoon. The schools are out. It is not yet dusk.
I am back at the pier. On my own. With my hat, scarf and gloves. It is colder now.
Looking for the girl. Before she settles down somewhere for the night.
The pier, at least the length of it stretching out into the sea, is rotten and decomposing. Much like Felixstowe itself. I think it must be dangerous to walk on. It has been closed off for years. It can only be a matter of time before it collapses into the sea. Good riddance to it, I’d say.
It would be better off gone. But it would be a major expense to remove it, and I believe the council bigwigs would rather spend money on schemes that only benefit their own back pockets. These people do very nicely out of us ordinary folk, what with their allowances and expenses and backhanders. And “jobs for the boys”, of course.
The front of the pier is new and busy. A few years ago it was renovated, and there is now a pleasant enough restaurant and fast-food places where you can buy fish and chips and multicoloured fizzy drinks and 101 flavours of ice cream.
She is nowhere to be seen outside.
The girl. She is not begging. Nor hidden away, getting ready for another long, cold night.
I know where she will be. Inside the pier.
When the front of the pier was being rebuilt, many in Felixstowe hoped it would be something like the one at Southwold – upmarket, with small cafes and dainty knick-knack shops. An attraction, drawing in people from far and wide.
What Felixstowe got was an amusement arcade. One huge aircraft hangar of a space, packed front to back, side to side, with machines. All you can hear is whirring and ringing and the shouts and yells and screams of teenagers. It makes Clacton look sophisticated.
The cacophony and the menacing and unbridled feral children everywhere repel me. But I force myself to go in. To see if she is here, checking for left-behind change in the trays of the machines.
I hope that is what she is doing. It could be worse. I imagine there are drugs to be had here, as there are where all teenagers gather these days. Or she could be in the toilets, in a clumsy sexual embrace with some young thug for a rolled-up twenty-pound note.

Today I’m on the ‘At the Fields of Fire and Blood’ blogtour, organized by Breakeven Books.
To promote this book I have some ‘basic’ information.

About the Author :

Crisyah is a Portugese, queer, neurodiverse writer who left traditional publishing behind in order to be able to write about characters like herself with no limitations.
Raised on a steady and varied diet of horror movies and epic fantasy, JRPGs, and anime, her first big project was a horror Mahou shoujo
starring her middle school classmates as the heroines. It’s no wonder her current series, At the End of the World, is a gothic fantasy Soulsborne and Madoka Magica mash-up.
You can find her on Twitter, yelling about video games, BTS, and her giant, fluffy cats.

Synopsis :

Humanity set out to achieve Godhood and failed.
Their attempt left a ruined world behind, one touched by magic for the first time, but blighted by Heaven and Hell seeping into it. The ones who were left behind hide in great walled cities, caught in the throes of a timeless undeath, and almost completely decimated by the monsters set loose from the deepest abyss of their collective unconscious.
The Scions — warrior-mages who ate the fruit of hell and became possessed by fragments of God known as “Archons” — are the only ones who can fight these nightmares and cross the barriers between the worlds. They’re kept locked and isolated in abbeys, reared to protect the cities and their inhabitants. And, one day, to undertake the Pilgrimage, the mythical heroic journey through Heaven and Hell that will finally open the doors to Eden and grant humanity what it once sought and couldn’t grasp: eternal peace.
But, inside the walls of one of the abbeys, rebellion is brewing. Kayla, Joshua, Sarah, Matthew, Vivien, and Darren tire of their captivity and plot to gain back their freedom and find answers to the mysteries of their dying world.
Yet it’s not only monsters that stand in their way. Some humans will fight for secrets to remain hidden, while others don’t wish to see the scales of power they’ve so carefully balanced tip. The Scions will have to follow in their ancestors’ footsteps and attain what their predecessors couldn’t to succeed: kill the Godhead and become gods themselves.

To promote this book I have an excerpt, but before I let you read it first some ‘basic’ information.

About the Author :

Jane writes novels, short stories and poems, usually with a good dose of humour in them. She’s probably owes it all to her late grandmother who, she’s just found out, also wrote short stories and poems. She tends to get an idea and then run with it whether it be a 100 word short story or an 80 thousand word novel. It all depends on the voices in her head at the time…

Excerpt :

‘Hello again, dear boy.’ Mr Binks looked up as John entered the shop. ‘What’s wrong?’ he added when he saw John’s worried expression.
‘Everything,’ said John. ‘But mainly this. Can I show you something?’
Mr Binks nodded. ‘Of course. A book? Have you found something special for me?’
‘Not a book. It’s this. This man’s speaking in what looks like a foreign language. I think it may have brought on a heart attack. Can you have a look and see what you think?
‘Of course,’ said Mr Binks, flipping the shop sign to CLOSED. ‘Come to the back room.’
John set up his laptop while Mr Binks went to retrieve his special glasses, the ones he kept for looking at important manuscripts. When he sat down, John played the film. Mr Binks put his head close to the screen and stared at the images.
‘My dear boy,’ he said. ‘That is terrible. Awful.’
‘What is it? What did he say?’
‘I would not venture even to say it out loud,’ Mr Binks said, looking around. ‘It is a curse. A terrible curse.’ He looked at John strangely.
What’s up with him? ‘What are you saying?’
‘Who is the man? Did he die?’
‘I think it’s Karen’s father. He died after someone came into his police station asking for directions. And then somehow Karen got this footage.’
‘Then dear boy, she may be in very great danger. If this man tried to kill her father, he may very well want to do the same to your young lady.’
John was horrified. ‘I must go to her – if I can find her…’
‘No,’ said Mr Binks so firmly John was taken aback. ‘All in good time. Nearly everything is founded on preparation, and there is much we can do to prepare first.’
‘We?’ John said.
‘Yes, we,’ Mr Binks replied. ‘You are not remotely equipped to deal with this. I will have to come with you.’
But you’re too old for this. ‘No, I can’t ask you…’
‘I’m fitter than you think,’ Mr Binks said, looking at John as if he’d read his thoughts. ‘And I assure you, you will need me with you. Now first things first; there’s something I need to look up. Something tapping away at my memory. We’ll need somewhere to stay. You organise that and make us both a nice cup of tea. I’ll put my thinking cap on.’ He disappeared out to the back room and was gone for ages.
‘Mr Binks? Where are you?’ Having booked some accommodation and watched the tea go cold, John was tired of waiting. In the back room, he was astonished to see yet another secret door. This one leading to a small passageway. ‘Mr Binks?’ He looked around in amazement as he entered another room full of books even more extraordinary than the room he’d just left. ‘Mr Binks?’ He looked up to see the little man perched on a bookshelf ladder.
‘I won’t be a moment. It’s just that I’ve forgotten my indexing system. I’m having to look at every copy with a red leather back.’
‘Can I help?’
‘Oh, my goodness, no. Most of these books have hardly ever been touched by human hand.’

Synopsis :

In this friends-to-lovers Regency romance by Charlie Lane, an independent lady and a cautious earl must do the most daring thing of all—fall in love.
A daring lady.
A caring earl.
And a Christmas house party that turns love into a dangerous game.
The Earl of Abbington is not a daring man.
Responsible for the care of an opium-addicted uncle, George’s life poses dangers to a bride that he’ll never risk. It’s why he avoided the independent and kind Lady Jane last year, despite her brother’s request he protect her during her season. His neglect no doubt led to Jane’s tattered reputation. In reparation, he’s sent pre-approved suitors to the house party to ensure she marries well, not to a man whose life is a nightmare.
Lady Jane is done being daring.
Her daring spirit ruined her reputation, her family’s social standing, and her brother’s marital prospects. But a Christmas house party attended by a coterie of willing suitors can put everything right. Plain of face and ordinary of intellect, Jane knows she’ll never find love. And she doesn’t want it anyway. Love is the most daring thing a woman can do, after all. Instead, she’ll develop a system to test her suitors and discover the best husband for a practical sort of marriage.
Jane needs George’s help choosing a husband, but George soon realizes he can’t give it without betraying his own heart. Together, they must find the courage to face the dangers of love or lose the love of a lifetime.

Synopsis :

When the body of Timothy Wall, a Private Detective, is found in his office, the querulous Inspector Carmichael discovers some surprising revelations and curious contradictions about the dead man. Loved by many and seemingly despised by others in equal measure, Timothy Wall’s whole world seems to be strewn with paradoxes.
This fast-moving whodunnit, based in the North West of England, sees McFadyen’s detective team tackle one of their most taxing cases yet.
Who killed Timothy Wall? Will one of his numerous lovers or ex-partners provide the answer to the conundrum? And what about Tim’s involvement with the brothers Baybutt, the local bookmakers. Do they know more than they are telling?
As Carmichael and his team seek answers to these questions it becomes crystal clear that all was not quite how it seemed in the life of Timothy Wall. This, the nineth book in the Carmichael series, is full of twists, turns and red herrings that will keep the reader guessing right up to the bitter end.
