and cunning to find and neutralize the child born of evil. This child
is prophesized to lead the demons of the western kingdoms to victory
over the people of the east. Other characters accompany Gant to Ferd,

flies to the west to do reconnaissance only to be captured and

Jeffrey, welcome to my blog. How long have you been writing?
I have been publishing fantasy novels since 2017. The actual writing began when I was six, a few decades earlier.
Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.
I was raised in a rural town in northern Virginia, bounced arund the country a bit from Texas to Missouri, and then landed back in a different small town in central Virginia. Life is funny like that.
How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?
If it sticks in my mind after the notion / dream / inspiration strikes, and I want to find out more, it’s a keeper.
Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?
My beta readers have helped spur a marked improvement in my writing. My first book was a hot mess.
What is the name of your book?
My new book is The Scion’s Delight, the prequel to my Mage Conspiracy series. It was inspired by a dream about a haughty princess trying to repair her broken death maze to torture rats. When I realized she was the younger incarnation of the evil empress in my main series, I knew I had a good story brewing.
Tell us more about it. Perhaps a back cover blurb.
A cunning trap. A whiff of magic. A burst of steam.
Princess Cordelia has steel plate ambition, a mind like twisting brass gears, and the political might of tin foil. The girl aims to ratchet the Iron Empire into a glorious new day of gears and steam. The entire palace is arrayed against her. The chambermaids disdain her. The emperor ignores her. The mages, championed by Lord Oriolanus, lead a brisk campaign of lies and coercion. Those evil magic users threaten to tighten their grip upon the land even though machines are clearly superior. By the gods’ oil-stained hands, why can’t anyone else see her vision of the ideal future?
Just when Cordelia’s future threatens to slip back into medieval quagmire, a lone stranger with ice blue eyes and flowing blond hair arrives from the savage north. The handsome barbarian is destined to make both the hearts of the empire and the princess tremble. Does this spell doom or salvation for the girl’s fragile dream?
Explore The Scion’s Delight, the fantasy romance prequel novella of The Mage Conspiracy series. Discover a world of adventure and intrigue where lies cut deeper than any sword.
Do you have a favorite character, why?
In this new book, I think Cordelia’s retiring servant Fortinbras is my favorite. His name is an homage to a character from one of my favorite fantasy authors growing up (email the correct guess who to firstname.lastname@example.org for a free ebook!), and his deadpan pissing contest with the ruler of an empire was a joy to write.
Here is the other books in the The Mage Conspiracy
What kind of impact do you expect your works to have in the reader’s lives?
I write to edify and enlighten, but most of all to entertain. I think Erin Kahn said it much, much better than I can: A book by Jeffrey Bardwell is always a good time: exciting, dangerous, gritty, and multi-layered . . . fast-paced, entertaining, and psychologically intense.
Do you have any advice for authors trying to break into the industry?
Keep writing. Don’t be afraid to push yourself out there. Your first book will probably suck. Write another. I went back and rewrote the first book in my Artifice Mage series three times before I was happy with it (and the book truly deserved the title “epic” fantasy.)

Secrets of Hawthorne House
Teen Paranormal Mystery
life changes forever when a family of druids moves into the
dilapidated Victorian mansion next door. The story of an unlikely
friendship, the clash of two completely different cultures, secret
magic, and a search for the lost Hawthorne treasure.
Matt Mitchell was having the worst summer imaginable. Mattâ€™s misery
started when a drunk driver killed his mother. Then his father moved
him and his twin sister to the small town of Hawthorne in rural
Indiana, as far as his grieving father could take from the ocean that
Matt’s mother had loved. At the new high school, three bullies are
determined to make Matt miserable. And to top it off, Matt learns
that the recluse who lives in the ‘haunted house” next door is
none other than Old Lady Hawthorne, the townâ€™s infamous witch and
murderer. Mattâ€™s terrible summer is turning into an awful autumn
when something quite unexpected happens. Old Lady Hawthorneâ€™s niece
and her three children arrive, and Matt meets Gerallt.
Matt and Tina Mitchell are twins who just lost their mother in an accident. Their father takes them far away from the seaside they love to the small town of Hawthorn. There they find themselves next door to the famous haunted house of the ghost of the gray lady. Matt needs some money and starts to clean the yard of the haunted house for Mrs. Hawthorn, getting to know her and her timid ways.
One day, her niece comes to live with her along with her three children. Matt becomes Geralt Hawthorne’s best friend and soon discovers that his family is not the common family he is adjusted to. Their secrets, their corky ways, no electricity, no games or computers make for an interesting friendship. Not only that, but the bullies at school are after them…they will have to pull together or be defeated.

Cas lives in the lovely county of Hampshire, southern UK, where she was born. On leaving school she trained for two years before qualifying as horse-riding instructor. During this time she also learned to carriage-drive. She spent thirteen years in the British Civil Service before moving to Rome, Italy, where she and her husband, Dave, lived for three years. They enjoy returning whenever they can. Cas supports many animal charities and owns two rescue dogs. She has a large collection of cacti and loves gardening. She is also a folk singer/songwriter and is currently writing and recording nine folk-style songs to accompany each of her fantasy books. You can listen to and download all the songs from her website:Â www.caspeace.comÂ
Born in the eighties, her formative years in the nineties, Rebecca’s taste in music and fashion never really had a chance. Fortunately, you can’t tell these things from her writing or voice over work. Her first novel,Â Trespasser, is as dark as her neon is bright, and you’d never guess from hearingÂ her that she’s narrating science fiction in nothing but unicorn pants.
Currently residing in London, Rebecca is passionate about travel, and has a good- albeit sometimes dubious- earÂ for accents. She graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a degree in something or other, has a background in musical theatre, a past career in burlesque, and is a classically trained opera singer. Oh, and she likes greyhounds. And wine.
Taran Elijahâ€™s quest for knowledge uncovers a plot that threatens the world…
In Albia, the fourth
realm, the preciousÂ ArtesanÂ gift
is dying. Although born to the craft, Taran is struggling to achieve hisÂ potential. Against his friends’ advice, he embarks on a foolhardy plan toÂ acquire the teaching he craves. Alone, he crosses into Andaryon, the fifthÂ realm, but instead of finding a mentor, he stumbles upon a treacherousÂ plot.Â
In the wake ofÂ Taran’s actions, Albia suffers a series of vicious raids, and Major Sullyan ofÂ the High King’s forces is sent to oppose them. But a dark and treacherous forceÂ is moving through the realms, and both Taran and Sullyan will feel its power.
Their craft, the lives of their friends, the very existence of their realm are
under threat unless they expose and oppose the evil.
“Cas Peace’sÂ ArtesansÂ of Albia trilogy immediately sweeps you away:Â the drama starts withÂ King’s Envoy, continues unabated inÂ King’s Champion, and climaxes inÂ King’sÂ Artesan, yet each volume is complete, satisfying.Â TheÂ ArtesanÂ seriesÂ propelsÂ you into a world so deftly written that you see, feel, touch, and even smell each twist and turn. These nesting novels are evocative, hauntingly real. Smart.Â Powerful.Â Compelling.Â The trilogy teems with finely drawn characters, heroes and villains and societies worth knowing; with stories so organic and yet iconic you know you’ve found another homeâ€”in Albia. So start reading now. I, for one, can’t wait to find out what will happen next.

I enjoyed the reading of King’s Envoys;Â Artesans of Albia by Cas Peace and narrated by Rebecca. It was full of emotions, clear and well done.Â The narrator does a great job with the reading and it flows smoothly.TheÂ Artesan SeriesÂ takes you into a world where you can imagine every detail of the descriptions in the tale. It is a most entertaining tale, full of twists and turns that will compel you to keep reading it to the end. It is great for readers of high fantasy and lovers of good narrated books.
