QUICK NOTE...Update: 9/7/19

First of all, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent heinous weather outbreaks, most recently being Hurricane Dorian. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and we're still trying to get back in our home. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Hopefully by month's end, we'll be back in there to start the next leg of recovery. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

The Raven Coven
by

About the book...
Kesta had left her heart across the sea. They were at peace, her people saved from slavery, and yet… her soul was uneasy.

Chem lies in chaos, its people suffering as a result of the death of the ruling sorcerers. Refugees flee the cursed Borrows, begging for help from those they had made their enemy. A Queen unknowingly makes a dark, deadly pact, and new powers rise to fill the seats left empty by the Dunham necromancers.

Q&A with Author Emma Miles!



1)  Let's face it, we're in a NOW NOW NOW sort of world, and catching someone's attention can be rough. For the time conscious, describe THE RAVEN COVEN in TEN WORDS or less...

A thrilling tale of unbreakable friendship, darkness, and sacrifice.



2)  Life often inspires fiction. Tell us, does the world of Chem or any of its inhabitants have real world ties?

Elden has influences from medieval Europe in terms of its geography and society, and the Borrows some similarities to the Nordic Viking coast. The Fulmers and Chem are entirely fictional though, and in the case of Chem that’s a very good thing!



3)  Writing can be a passion discovered in youth, or something stumbled upon later in life. Did you always dream of becoming a writer?

I didn’t dream of being a writer as such, in that it wasn’t something as a child I’d considered as a career. I have always been a writer though, it’s something I was born with; it’s in my soul.



4)  If you could go back in time and write any famous work, which would you choose to call your own and why?

I don’t think I would. Every writer has their own style and their own stories to tell, I would much rather write my own work and enjoy that of others. I’d consider writing George RR Martin’s next book in the Song of Ice and fire series though as I’ve been waiting for it a very long time!



5)  Quid pro quo. I'll supply the sentence start...you fill in the blank. Ready? GO!

a) Favorite color... Purple
b) Favorite flower... Daffodil
c) Favorite season... Autumn
d) Favorite author/book of the moment... Terry Pratchett’s Thud
e) When I'm not writing, I can be found... Unfortunately, mostly at work, but when I can I’m out with my camera photographing wildlife.

About the author...

I presently live in the stunning county of Dorset where I’m a cat slave to Wolfe and Piglitt. I spend as much time as I can outside in nature and love exploring and learning about new cultures and languages. I’ve visited Greece, Serbia, Transylvania, Sicily and Norway as well as making several road trips around our beautiful United Kingdom. I paint, sculpt, dabble in photography and do a little archery but most of all – whenever I get a chance – I write.

My writing started from a very young age when I often found myself being the one taking charge of and entertaining all my younger cousins. They loved to hear my stories and although they mostly called for ghost stories it was fantasy I fell in love with when I read The Lord of the Rings when I was ten. I went on to write stories and short ‘books’ for my friends through school and college; then one evening whilst I was waiting for my aunt and uncle to visit an image came to my mind of a boy sitting beneath a bridge. I didn’t know who he was or why he was there, but from exploring those questions ‘The Wind’s Children’ trilogy blossomed and grew with roots going back into his far history as well as stretching out to his future. The boy’s name was Tobias.

I have since left Tobias's world of 'Naris' to explore the Valley with Feather in the 'Hall of Pillars' which is now available through Amazon. I am now presently finding my way through Elden, the beautiful Fulmer islands, the ravaged Borrows and haunted Chem with Kesta Silene; a shamaness of sorts with a big journey ahead of her. I hope you come along to share her story and join her adventure; she needs you and you won't regret it.
