    Author Interview - Autumn Macarthur Talks About Her Free Book "The Wedding List"


    What was the inspiration for your book?
    I love London, and up until a couple of years ago worked in central London in an office just off the main shopping district. Though The Wedding List is Book 1 in the series, it actually was written second! The idea for a book set in a London department store came to me when I saw a publisher asking for Christmas novellas based on the song Believe in Me. That gave me the idea of the dare to save the store that features in that story. It soon grew way past novella length! My brain tends to work in series, so it wasn't long before secondary characters wanted their own books, especially the crazy ideas the older store owner thinks up to improve sales! The Wedding List is a stand-alone prequel set around the store in the Fall.
    Introduce us briefly to the main characters.
    Beth wants nothing more than a house of her own. In her job, as wedding list co-ordinator in the department store, she helps brides-to-be choose the perfect items to create their dream homes instead. Forced to leave school at sixteen, she's also desperate to educate herself and leave behind her poor origins. She's been bullied and looked down on because of that, lost a sweet relationship in her teens that meant so much to her because of that, so never again!

    James, a physicist and college professor, lives in a world of science, not relationships. Brilliant in his lab, but bumbling and absent minded in real life, it's no surprise he goes to the wrong store to buy a wedding gift.

    What surprises both him and Beth is that he's her lost teenage love, and he's determined not to lose her a second time.
    Tell us about the setting.
    Pettett and Mayfield's is the frumpy and unfashionable maiden aunt of London department stores. Off the main Oxford street shopping area, sales are falling and staff are worried. The owner's eccentric attempts to modernise and improve sales fall flat every single time. Latest scheme is to make all the staff dress in Halloween outfits for the days leading up to Halloween, whether they want to or not!
    Other settings are Hyde Park, and a wedding inside the famous landmark of Tower Bridge!
    What makes this a great read?
    The Wedding List is a fun, sweet, and uplifting short read. It's a Christian romance, so God works in James' and Beth's lives to both bring them together again and to heal past hurts.

    Author Interview - C. H. MacLean Talks About HIs Free Book "One is Come"


    What was the inspiration for your book?
    I'm not sure what I did to deserve it, but the story just exploded in my mind. Characters, plot, scenes, titles, all just rippled out from that explosion. In the center stands a curly-haired girl, thinking she is less than normal. Haylwen—pronounced hail-wen—is determined to have something of a normal life. But she really is so much more than normal.

    Modestly, she says she just learned to trust herself. But starting in this book (and more and more in the series), she showed me what that really means. She has to stand up to her fears, decide what is right and wrong, and risk everything to save herself and the world. I still get goosebumps just thinking about it.
    Introduce us briefly to the main characters.
    I've already mentioned Haylwen. She's fourteen and a half and on the verge of at least starting to figure out who she really is. With stubbornness to rival her father and a temperament like her mother, her only limitation is herself. She doesn't know that, and many people and dragons would like to keep it that way.

    Cadarn, her older brother, is sixteen. He's a nerd with computer-geek tendencies. Much of that is actual personality, some just from his growing up constantly on the move. His strength is there, just much more hidden and temperate, especially compared to Haylwen.
    Tell us about the setting.
    One is Come is set in the modern world. Cell phones, internet, and global warming, the whole bit. Just like ours, it's a new-age world, trying to find its way through environmentalism and industry, progress and holism. Much of the book links to our modern world, such as with kotodama and Dr. Emoto's work.

    But as Haylwen finds out, energy and magic aren't figurative. She attends school, living through the normal problems of trying to make friends and dealing with bullies. She can't help magic flows through her. She can't avoid the fact her life will never be normal. And she has no idea that dragons are done with being mythical.
    What makes this a great read?
    I'd say it's the people, plot, and pacing. The story combines modern day teens and ancient dragons, old-school parents using new-age magic. Twisting like a Celtic knot, the plot pulls you in. I also love how the story flows through deep emotions but in fast-paced action.

    But I think reviewers say it better: undeniably brilliant…I fell straight into this story and loved it immediately… a definite must read …spellbinding…page-turner... plenty of action, angst and magical awesomeness.
