Interview with Martin Ferguson

Interview with Martin Ferguson

I am so thrilled to be posting this interview today! Many thanks to Martin Ferguson for taking the time to write up responses to my questions! Especially during release week for the latest book in his Relic Hunters series, War of the Damned!

Who is Martin Ferguson?
I live in Norwich, England and am currently working on the young adult fantasy and historical series 'Relic Hunters'. Inspired by the myths and legends my parents told me as a boy and with the help of my ever-suffering wife, a teacher and history graduate, 'Eagle of the Empire' was the first entry in the 'Relic Hunters' series, followed by 'Curse of the Sands' in 2017 and 'War of the Damned' in 2018.

My work as an author began under the name Edward Drake, with the release of the fantasy series ‘The Warrior’s Journey’ and ‘Stormheart’, along with the thriller ‘Outlaws’. I was also one of the authors featured in the Little Bird Publishing House anthology ‘Night Shade’ with the horror story ‘A Beaten and Haunted Heart’.

Let's dive into the interview!

[Book Review] The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler

The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler is a frustrating but heartwarming story about a girl in high school that is struggling to get comfortable in her own skin while navigating the both the tricky world of high school and some very difficult family situations.

This was one of my favorite books in high school. In fact, when I finished reading this for the first time, I immediately put it in the hands of one of my classmates. I made such a fuss about this book, that it soon made the rounds through our high school. Granted, it was a small school, so making the rounds didn't take too long. I was just so excited to share it!

Finally, 10 years later... I've finally reread it and it was just as enjoyable the second time around!

My First Book Of The Month Box

I had been thinking about subscribing to Book of the Month for a while. The pricing wasn't bad, but with how tight our budget is with the upcoming wedding, I didn't want to risk it.

Besides, I very rarely buy new books. I mostly check them out from the library or snag them from used book stores, only purchasing books that I know I will reread time and time again. Or at least that's what I try to do. Ha! Of course I will snag a brand new book that I just couldn't wait to get from the library on occasion.

But then on my birthday, my wonderful fiancé gifted me a six-month subscription!

[Book Review] Dead Ends by Tony Moyle

Book Review of Dead Ends by Tony Moyle

Dead Ends by Tony Moyle is the third book in the How To Survive the Afterlife book series. If you're looking for a humorous read with some great characters, I highly recommend this series!

I took my time getting through this one so I could really take it all in. Even so, I was so sad when it ended simply because I didn't want it to end!

If you missed my review or interview with Tony for The Limpet Syndrome or Soul Catchers, feel free to check them out and then come back here.

Full disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my rating in any way.
