BFS Horizons #7 arrived today - looks good! Thank you editors Shona Kinsella and Tim Major, as well as Ian Hunter, who must be approaching his tenth year as the BFS's poetry editor.

It's up on Goodreads if members would like to add it to their reading lists. It's a nice easy way to promote the society:

Because Goodreads shows I have the BFS publications, I sometimes get emails from non-members asking for bibliographical information about them, so I thought it might be handy to pull that together here (page numbers in brackets):

Endeavours of the Unsung, my first short story collection, is now available.

From Armaran in the west to Icetaihn in the north and Zaern’Kairnell in the east,
there are 10 unsung tales to be told.

A crystalline fortress in the farthest reaches of a treacherous glacier.
A demonic fissure in the depths of a formidable gorge. 
Long kept secrets in a forest cloaked in fog.
One pint-sized bookworm with a penchant for adventure. 
Covert operations at a vampire soirée. 

Many are the tales of Aeldynn.
Here are the Endeavours of the Unsung

Hello, in this first post I'd like to tell you about my debut fantasy novel, Keys of the Origin (volume I: The Scions of Balance). Below I have copied out the blurb and left a link to my website. Please note, the site is still under construction, but it is gradually being populated. The book is available on Amazon and numerous other online retailers. So far it has received some very positive responses. If you pick it up and enjoy it, please give a review on Amazon, and GoodReads if you're on there, and if you'd like to connect on social media, you can find the details in my signature and on my website.

In a world where ancient races still dwell, the events of an age-old prophecy begin to stir.
From the pages of an antique tome, there is much the ancients themselves have yet to learn.

The time has come for the Keys of the Origin to play their part in restoring balance to Aeldynn; but how will their choices affect the outcome?

Two young men; one a righteous law-abiding servant to the people, the other a distinguished outlaw, don't yet realise they are to play a part in a foretold bid for the future of Aeldynn. Fate leads them down a road they would never have dreamed of following; a road that leads them into a struggle to bring the world back into a state of balance from the precipice of madness and desolation.

It is not only Zehn and Larkh who are fated to take on the malevolent forces of Aeldynn; there are others who must join with them as they are coaxed into the embrace of the ancient Nays and the fabled Drahknyr, who are also entangled in the masterful puppeteering of a renegade sorceress hell bent on reviving the greatest threat of all; Alymarn.

This blog post by Juliet McKenna might be interesting in this context:

The BFS Journal could be a good source of such citations if members contribute articles about modern female writers. It’s got me thinking about whether there’s something I could write.
