Brand new Q&A – stuff about the new book and the like. Go on, take a look!
Today i bring to you an interview with the awesome Steven A. McKay author of the brilliant Wolf’s Head which is book one of his Robin Hood series.

Now on with the questions!!
1) For anyone who follows my blog I’m sure they will be aware of your work but for anyone who’s not read any of your books yet what would you say to them to get them to give them a go?
It’s historical fiction without the “gadzooks” or “prithee” bollocks. I wanted to write stories set in medieval times but with people you and I could relate to. Normal people, rather than high born knights and ladies…

For some time now I've not been happy with the cover for my first novella, Knight of the Cross. It was my own design, pretty much, and I loved it at first, but it's started to look kinda dated or something to me so I asked my cover designers to modify it somewhat, check it... Continue Reading →
Nice review from Parmenion Books here!
Author bio from his own web site
My name is Steven A. McKay and I’m a writer from Old Kilpatrick, near Glasgow in Scotland, heavily influenced by the likes of Bernard Cornwell, Douglas Jackson, Simon Scarrow, Ben Kane et al.
My first book, Wolf’s Head, is set in medieval England and is a fast-paced, violent retelling of the Robin Hood legends. I think my take on the theme is quite different to anything that’s been done before. It hit the number 1 spot in the UK “War” chart, reached the overall Kindle top 20 bestsellers list and is available on Kindle and paperback from Amazon here: http://smarturl.it/2636 . The sequel, The Wolf and the Raven was also a “War” chart number 1 as well as hitting the top spot in the US “Medieval” chart.

Another new review for Friar Tuck and the Christmas Devil, this time from the Hoover Book Reviews blog. 5 stars!
Friar Tuck is hiding under an assumed name having run afoul of a powerful member of the church hierarchy and finds himself living in a small village that is being plagued by visits from demons and devils. The author has given us and Tuck a mystery to solve; one that has the good Friar utilizing all of his skills, both mental and physical to rid the village of the cloven-hoofed, horned devil. The tale is well told with a steady pace, action aplenty, and a deeper look into the character of Tuck. Couple that with a fine Christmas feast and you have a 5 star winner.
The Kindle and paperback versions have been up for a couple of weeks, and now the audiobook is available to pre-order from Audible. Includes a foreword written AND read by Phil Rose from Robin of Sherwood, you don't want to miss this, it's the perfect thing to listen to in the festive period!
