This is the Books and Authors Fantasy Podcast Episode 86 with Gary Jonas.
Good day and welcome to this episode of the Books and Authors Fantasy Podcast. I’m your host, podcaster and author of Fun Fantasy Reads, Jamie Davis. This podcast is exactly what the title says it is, a show focused on everything in fantasy books.
This show will cover everything to do with fantasy books. From Epic Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Sword and Sorcery, and everything in
Let’s kick off this week’s episode with my author update. I just turned in book 3 in the Huntress Clan Saga to the editor. It’s always a relief to get a book finished and on to the next level. Huntress Cadet should be out around the end of February or the beginning of March. You’ll definitely want to check this series out. Huntress Initiate, is the first book in the Huntress Clan Saga in case you haven’t picked it up yet.
I’ll be starting on Book 8 of the Extreme Medical Services series. The tentative title is going to be The Paramedic’s Amazon and it will surround the discovery of a human trafficking ring who are smuggling fairy slaves into the country. Don’t worry, though. Our hero, paramedic to the supernatural Dean Flynn, will be on the case and you can be sure he’ll bring along his friends to break up this supernatural criminal ring.
You can check out more information on what I’m up to, including sneak peeks of upcoming covers, special giveaways, and more, by visiting my fan group on Facebook, Jamie’s Fun Fantasy Readers and over at my website and blog, JamieDavisBooks.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
On today’s show I interview, Gary Jonas. Gary is a good friend of mine. We’ve met up at conferences on a regular basis. Thought he started out thinking he’d go into writing and drawing comic books, he eventually landing in writing fiction.
He sold his first short story back in the 1990’s and his first novel in 2002. In 2015, Gary went full-time as an author and hasn’t looked back. We talk about several of his series, especially his Jonathan Shade series (12 urban fantasy books). Here’s the link to his Half-Assed Wizard Series boxed set, too.
