Shout out to Mark Stay/What I have been reading – Mark is one half of the Bestseller Experiment, the podcast that helped me get my fiction back out there after the tough few years I had post-2013. He’s also a fantastic writer who has a rather wonderful epic fantasy, The End of Magic, that was released earlier this year. As the podcast name suggests, Mark likes a good experiment and his current challenge is to try to sell 1000 copies of The End of Magic before Christmas 2019 in the US**. I loved The End of Magic. The book is a smart tale about how people react when their world changes overnight and will particularly appeal to fans of Jen Williams, Robin Hobb, Trudi Cavanan and Terry Pratchett.
