A drabble is a story which is exactly 100 words long, the word count excludes the title. I think drabbles are great fun, but they actually take a bit more work than you might imagine. To look at a…Continue
Most folk believe that technology rules their lives. They’re wrong. Dark conspiracies and ancient magic actually dominate this planet. My one mission in life is to open people’s eyes to that fact.
My name is Ken Magee and I tell people I write contemporary fantasies which blend adventure and humour with technology and magic. My books live under the tagline ‘ancient magic meets the Internet’. I pretend that they’re works of fiction, because I’m afraid of the powerful people behind the conspiracies… I’m hoping a ‘fiction’ writer will slip under their radar.
Up until the point when I discovered about the frightening plot which deliberately caused the recent global financial meltdown, I’d led a fairly normal life. I’d worked for many years in the computer industry in roles ranging from programming through to sales. In the middle of it all, I’d served in the Naval Reserve… which was hard work, but fun. Then in 2010, I decided to make time to finish Dark Tidings, the book I’d started many years earlier (writing not reading). I would have finished it sooner, but life got in the way. It’s finished now (the book, not life).
Dark Tidings is book one of the series. The Black Conspiracy and A Darker Shade of Black complete the ‘ancient magic meets the Internet’ trilogy.
Thanks Ken. It's because the site adds an extra http:// at the start. I think I've fixed it now. I'd be grateful, if you have the time, if you could check (it works for me, but I'm not sure which bit you clicked on - I find this site terribly confusing...)
Ken, thank you again for participating in last week's book review. I wanted to let you know I am half way through Dark Tidings. I must say, it started getting really good once you brought the two stories together.
I also just recently joined Wattpad and noticed that your book is doing very well over there. Congratulations!
I hope you can follow the link below and help me congratulate fellow indie and member of The Book Marketing Network, Martin Murphy, on having his novella featured on the Sunday Showcase of Indies Unlimited.
I believe I first heard of you and your book on one of Indies Unlimited's Thrifty Thursdays. That's when I grabbed your book :-)
