Julia Hughes - writing thrilling adventures - time after time after time.
Whoo Hoo! Here we go – blogging all over the world! – Or at least that's how it feels.
I may have mentioned this before; but "The Griffin Cryer" goes free on Saturday 12th January – until midnight 16th January.
Ultra kind indie authors and supporters have enabled "The Griffin Cryer" to perform a mini blog hop! The links are below, but even if you're not a griffin fancier, please do visit these sites – they all have one thing in common – They're all quality and you're sure to find something interesting to read!
Today I appear on D.C. McGannon's site; be sure to check out his predictions for 2013 directly below my interview – great fun!
Tomorrow I'll be appearing on Jenny Worstall's site – Jenny is the very talented author of "Make A Joyful Noise" and generously provided input for the musical sequences in "The Griffin Cryer" – thank you Miss Worstall!
On Friday, I'll be guesting on Nancy Wood's author interview site. This is a new feature on Nancy's site, and has already proven a huge success!
Previous guest appearances still available to read on line by kind invitation of:
Dody – Treasured Encounters – we somehow got talking about the best way to ride a griffin!
Joyce Strand interviewed me, just as The Griffin Cryer was released, and posed some very thoughtful questions. Strand's Simply Tips has some marvellous features and is highly recommended!
And Rebecca Ryals Russell kindly published my guest post "Griffins Rule – Dragons Drool" on her "Yellow Hat Writer" site "Spellbindings" – here you can discover if you have what it takes to be a griffin rider!
Finally, a massive thank you to Randall Peterson, who when he isn't sending my new title up mercilessly in his twitter parody "The Giraffe Cryer" is as always, incredibly generous, and allowed me to talk about "The Griffin Cryer" when it was first released, on his site "There's Magic in Everything".
There you have it; everything you never thought you wanted to know about me, and my writing! But seriously, the above are all great sites, and a whole range of interesting features are there for your entertainment! Hope you'll visit and say "hi" to this merry band of indie authors, who make it very easy to make new friends!

Frankie Shaunessy's friends are out of this world!
It's an easy mistake to make - instead of whistling and calling for her dog, fifteen year old Frankie accidentally summons a griffin and his rider from another world. The Rider is tall, blond and extremely rude. On the other hand, Balkind is the sweetest, most lovable griffin Frankie's ever met, and Frankie is determined to help the Rider and his griffin find a way back to their own world.
Dealing with parallel universes, disgruntled warriors, and hungry griffins is the easier part of Frankie's life. At school, Frankie learns friends can become enemies, teachers aren't always right, and the boy of your dreams can be all too human. Told in approximately 53,000 words, suitable for young adults, and all those who've ever dreamed of riding a griffin.
