Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Definitely the ability to have God-like powers. Wearing pyjamas to work is just the icing on the cake.
What are you working on next?
In 2015 I'm going against my usual manic writing style (I once wrote a 50,000-word first draft in three days) and forcing myself to write slowly. At the moment, that book is called "The Floating City". I'm not even outlining it yet, just researching and thinking.

Smashwords book reviews by Felicity Banks

  • The Changeling Detective on Aug. 07, 2013

    Great hero, great book. I do like a good cross-genre novel, and being a "mutant" (as he calls himself) P.I. works beautifully. The transition from x-men style scifi to buffy style magic (possibly still scifi) to Christianity-ish supernatural creatures (or are they?) was interesting, and it works. I found the jump from "magic/witch is real" to "If that's real, what about God etc?" really intriguing. I still do. It's strange that so few books go there. The character of Ruth isn't super well developed, and her magical skills are under-utilised - but she was still compelling. The climax was genuinely tense, and I want so badly to read the next book!
