First day of 2017 and that traditional news round-up of the previous twelve months. First of all I wish you all a wonderful 2017 and thank you all for supporting my writing over 2016! 2016 was a strange year. A great deal of it felt as if life in the Edwards-Coleborn household was marking time. Health… Read More Happy New Year!
In the light ( 🙂 ) of this week’s supermoon… An extract from ‘Drawing Down the Moon’ – one of the creepy tales to be found in my collection Fables and Fabrications. (Available in paper and kindle formats) *** …She breathed in ozone-laden moisture and remembered how she had stood on the hillside within the… Read More An Extract From ‘Drawing Down The Moon’ #fiction #fables&fabrications #horror
Super 5* review for Fables and Fabrications here on Amazon!
One of the most frequently asked questions from people who first see my Fables and Fabrications collection is ‘why the cat?’
Older Fantasycon goers amongst us will remember the annual Fcon report that appeared in the BFS Newsletter/Bulletin/Prism following Fantasycon each year.

Building platforms for your writing is always tricky, and potentially unwieldy with so many threads to look after. For some time I have followed the trend of launching a new Facebook page for every book as it comes out, but once you get a few of them its so hard to keep track and update… Read More House keeping those platforms

Opening lines from ‘Grey Magic For Cat Lovers’ Just one of the stories included in Fables and Fabrications! THERE WAS SOMETHING about a new book that could thrill Kara beyond all else. That satin softness of a pristine dust jacket. That crisp cut closeness of unread pages. That indefinable waft of ink and invitation. Once… Read More Opening Teasers
Just received a copy of the ‘rather good’ review for Fables and Fabrications as it appears in the Birmingham Science Fiction Group newsletter.
Renegade Readers met at Newcastle-under-Lyme Library and as always an eclectic mix of pieces were read out and as usual there were some rather interesting crossovers. The pieces read out included: … Source: Renegade Readers May 26th 2015
I have been searching for several of my early publication credits, which I was certain lurked in the dark recesses of the house somewhere, for months – years – decades!
This Monday (bank holiday) I shall be at the Grange at Leominster Festival along with fellow authors Misha Herwin and Jem Shaw for a day of readings, and with Peter Coleborn of Alchemy Press for some hard core bookselling!
A fabulous review on Goodreads (and Amazon) for Fables and Fabrications appeared today! “A delicious smorgasbord of short stories…” “…varied and fascinating collection with something for all tastes.” Comments like these could turn a girl’s head!
An excellent review for Fables and Fabrications on Murder Mayhem and More. “Compact chronicles, seemingly distilling the detail and energy from an entire novel into a condensed, compelling form … (Edwards) expertly blends matter-of-fact everyday reality with far-fetched and fanciful notions that somehow seem entirely credible.”
Today sees the online launch for Fables and Fabrications! Launch day today! 6pm to midnight! Chat and fun and virtual libations! Plus! Join in the fun to win one of two giveaway paper copies! (UK) and if you can’t make it never fear – you can purchase paper and kindle copies from the usual outlets!”
I love cats and have included two cat stories in Fables and Fabrication. One of the things I like about cats is their inscrutability and independence. Whatever they might try to convince you of a cat deigns to liver with you, and unless you lock the doors and windows a better offer from the house down the road will… Read More Pre-fables

‘Damnation Seize My Soul’ , another tale appearing in Fables and Fabrications, is all about Pirates – or is it… True, it was intended to be a straight pirate tale, but somehow it got tangled up with the age-old idea of a Universal Hero being washed through the eons on the twin currents of revenge and justice, making Mercedeys Benks… Read More Fables and Fabrications : Avast there!
