On Wednesday, May 3rd, I traveled to Newcastle to take part in a panel discussion with fantasy author, Sebastian De Castell. Sebastian was on tour promoting Spellslinger, the first in an eight book fantasy YA series.
Questions from MC, Jonny, and the audience, included: what was the inspiration for our books; how long did it take to write them; what are our writing routines; who do we like to read and many others. It was a relaxed and fun discussion that ran for ninety minutes and finished with book signings.
By the way, I highly recommend Spellslinger. Sebastian's story of a powerless young magician, a hero who is not the chosen one is both funny and compelling.
