    Waters and the Wilds, The Wildest Hunt.

    Having listened to Jo on the chrons podcast, I felt I should say something about these books. No secret my favourite book by Jo is Inish Carraig, I will haunt her till she writes a sequel. It's a book that pulls you in and makes you invest in the characters. Waters and the Wilds, doesn't get...

    Inish Carraig - what's the appeal?

    In a recent blog post, Jo Zebedee expressed surprise that Inish Carraig sells so well, and wondered aloud at its appeal. That got me to thinking what really appealed to me about the book, and why I enjoyed it so much. A couple of thoughts come to mind: 1. The prologue - I know this was posted...

    The Wildest Hunt

    Some writing news for a change! Yes, I still write words! The Wildest Hunt, set in beautiful Glenveagh in Donegal (well, okay, it’s not so beautiful by the time I’m done with things), has been acquired by Inspired Quill publishing and will be released in 2021. Huzzah! In the meantime I’m...

    Patreon journey

    I'm moderately terrified of this.... a lot of people have suggested I should look into starting a Patreon page. I'm doing so much at the moment - helping with conventions, supporting local sff writers, assisting with various communities - none of which are paid, all of which are important (to...

    Was Inish Carraig set on Rathlin Island?

    Just watched Martin Clunes "Islands of Britain" series Islands of Britain (TV series) - Wikipedia ... and noticed in episode 2 he went to an island just off Northern Ireland called Rathlin: Rathlin Island - Wikipedia I had a funny feeling this was the setting for Inish Carraig, so I paid...

    Map of my Northern Ireland world - awesomeness

    The rather wonderful @thaddeus6th created this for me! I'm so excited and just think it's all kinds of awesome, seeing my stories coming to life here! (Can I call this my first fan-art, or art based on my worlds, or something?) Thanks so much to Thad - and one for other authors to think about...

    A Fond Goodbye to Abendau...

    So with my ongoing health probs (which are improving) I decided to conclude some contracts that were coming to an end. It has been great working with Jo and I have no doubt we have a superstar in the making. Glad I played a small part: publishing 2 stories in Malevolence and Abendau, not to...

    Inish Carraig Review

    Just this second finished reading Inish Carraig by Jo Zebedee, and I had to quickly rattle out my thoughts on it. Set in N. Ireland after an alien invasion, Inish Carraig follows John Dray, a teenager in the ruins of Belfast. After unwittingly releasing a virus that nearly wipes out one of the...

    Inish Carraig is 2 years old! And now free!

    Been a wee star for me, this one. I've popped it onto free for a couple of days - grab one if you can! The synopsis. The aliens invaded Belfast. The locals aren't happy.

    First reviews - Waters and the Wild

    'What a completely enthralling new novel from Jo Zebedee! Throughout 'Waters and the Wild' there's a haunting sense of disparateness - between goodness and evil, darkness and light, truth and lies and, movingly, between what each character believes they know and what really is. From the very...

    Waters and the Wild - live for preorders!

    Exciting! I hope to get the first review up on goodreads later - but in the meantime thanks to @Teresa Edgerton and @chopper for reading an early copy and being prepared to give an endorsement (and the awesome Peadar O'Guillin, too. After his masterful capturing of the sidhe in The Call, it was...
