Here Be Magic. The magic of laughter, dreams, good books and friendship. This is the blog of a group of fantasy writers who all have books published or about to be published with Carina Press. Our writing covers everything from fairytale retellings to steampunk, paranormal to post-apocalyptic. We wander through history and down the streets of our hometowns, muttering “what if...?” We tangle ourselves and our characters in myth and legend, the ruins of ancient civilisations and the purely fantastical.

What this blog will be in the future, we simply don’t know. We hope it’ll be a community, a place for readers and writers to share what they love about the fantasy genre and what they hate – because there has to be a balance. You can’t have a hero without a villain, a happy ending without a heart-stopping moment of risk. You can’t love a genre without passionately exploring everything about it.

Here Be Magic is where we’ll share our adventures in writing fantasy and in reading it. And we hope you’ll share yours.

    I'm looking forward to reading the posts here.
    Congratulations on the new site.
    All the best,

  2. Congratulations on your launch!!! The site looks great and what a fantastic line-up of authors! This will definitely be a place I'll visit with a warm cup of coffee and a ready imagination! :)

  3. Congratulations on the new site. And good luck to all the authors here. As a fan of Barb Longley, I'm happy that she's introducing me to a new virtual bookshelf full of great storytellers. I'm looking forward to reading all of your work!

  4. Yay! Looks fun. You guys did a great job, I'll definitely be back. With bells on...

  6. Hey, this looks like it's going to be a lot of fun! Thanks to all for putting it together... my preference is absinthe ;)

  7. [Tia serves tankard of absinthe, and hopes that is the appropriate drinking vessel for such a beverage.] Thanks everyone! We hope to make this place lots of fun.

  8. Hi all! Isn't it brilliant to have a group blog -- fantastic fantasy and all things spec :) I can't wait to see what we get up to -- I'm sure it'll be wild if Tia's serving absinthe!

    Thanks to everyone for their good wishes -- and for finding time to pop in as holiday craziness takes over our lives :)

  9. I don't even know what it is. I hope it's legal. :)

  10. Good luck with this new blog!!! Looking forward to following you.

  11. The blog looks brilliant! Top job!
    Tankard's of absinthe, Tia? Oh my, we'll be out of action for days.

  12. Hi Eleni! Thanks for the good wishes :)

    Janni, good point! Might have to share my absinthe with a friendly pot plant so I survive till Christmas.

  13. OMG, TANKARDS of absinthe??? I knew I came to the right place (even though I prefer to drink vodka :P)

  14. Congrats to you all on a great new blog...


  15. Seleste, I think vodka's safer, though I'll stick with my whiskey -- with ice since it's hot here in Australia.

    Dawn, I just looked at your website. It's gorgeous, so atmospheric.
