A Podcast is Born

Following the release of A Fantasy Writers’ Handbook, my good friend JM Williams and I came up with the idea of launching a podcast in a similar vein. A clever move or a foolish one? Time shall tell.

The Fantasy Writers’ Toolshed will serve as a more interactive platform to talk about all things writing, fantasy fiction, and building your author platform, delivered in a light-hearted and hopefully humorous way. The aim is to help you become a better writer and to discuss ways of getting your scribblings before the eyes of as many people as possible.

Some of the things you can expect:

  • General writing tips, techniques, guides, methods, theories and plenty of chit chat;
  • Fantasy-specific writing tips and techniques, such as on world-building, fantasy tropes, naming character etc;
  • Plenty of guests to talk about hot topics, such as men writing women characters and vice versa;
  • Giveaways and competitions!
  • Opportunities for you to send your books into us to be reviewed on the show;
  • Film reviews.

Get involved

Episodes will be monthly! You can write to us at any time with questions, queries or requests and we’ll feature the best each episode. I’ll also be running a book review section, giving all writers the opportunity to submit their books for a featured review.

If you want to get involved, just fill out the form below.



To give you a flavour of what’s to come, we’ve recorded a short promo vid. Available on iTunes, Spotify and Youtube. Links below! And don’t forget to hit that subscribe button!
