This is the Books and Authors Fantasy Podcast Episode 164 with Mark Alvarez.
Good day and welcome to this episode of the Books and Authors Fantasy and Sci-Fi 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 between, expect to find the best and brightest authors from all the various corners of the fantasy book world. Plus we’ll add in a few other very special guests as well along the way.
Kicking things off this week with my own author update, I’m almost finished the edits for The Paramedic’s Sorceress, book 9 in my Extreme Medical Services series. Once that’s off to the editor, I’ll start digging into the Accidental Monk, book 4 in my Accidental Champion series. I’m excited to start in on that series again after a bit of a hiatus.
You can catch up with more information on what I’m up to, including some early looks at excerpts from the new book over in my Fun Fantasy Readers Facebook group. I post 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.
Joining us this week on the show is author Mark Alvarez. Mark was born in the inner-city limits of Houston, Texas where he miraculously survived a gunshot at the age of four years old. Little did he know, this one incident would change his outlook on life forever. Despite his shortcomings, Mark remained studious, aspiring to become an adept and renowned writer, using his story, Light Wings, as a medium of hope, inspiration, and above all faith in a seemingly faithless world.
He has written the first volume of The Light Wings Epic fantasy series. That book is called Dutybound.and begins exploring a world where power and magic is tied to virtue and faith. Check out my interview with Mark, coming up next.
