{Interview+Giveaway} Rheia by Cassandra Page

{Interview+Giveaway} Rheia by Cassandra Page

Interview with Cassandra Page, author of Rheia I noticed that Rheia is listed as a fantasy rather than a historical fantasy – is it actually set in Ancient Greece? Not exactly, no. The kingdom of Oreareus in which Rheia is set is inspired by the world of Ancient Greece – from the culture and the aesthetic to the Minotaur, the Minoans and the island of Crete. But I’m no historian, and I took a fair amount of creative license: the steampunk elements of my world, as minor as they are, are the most obvious markers of that. That being said, there was a long time there where my favourite web searches all started with the words “Ancient Greek” and finished with everything from clothes to meals to plant life. Rheia is the first novel I’ve written that isn’t an urban fantasy set in modern day Australia, and I wanted to get the world-building as right as I possibly could. What made you decide to switch genres from urban fantasy? My… Read more »

{Excerpt+Giveaway} Boy in a Band by Lisa Loomis

{Excerpt+Giveaway} Boy in a Band by Lisa Loomis

“I’m glad you came,” he said. “I wanted to hear you play.” He glanced at me quickly. Stupid response. I looked toward the house and could see people in the living room and poolroom. I wanted to race towards it, get inside and get warm again. “You can go back now,” I said. “You don’t have to walk all the way.” I felt him grasp my hand and spin me towards him, making me falter. My free hand shot out landing on his chest in order to balance myself. His skin felt soft and warm. “What was that?” I gasped, looking up at him. His eyes searched mine. My hand was still on his chest, and I let it fall, looking down to avoid his eyes. My mind raced, and I remembered our fireside conversation. What is he doing? He had a thing for some girl named Debbie. I didn’t move. It seemed like a long time we stood that way when finally he took my face in his hands… Read more »
