Book Title : Awakening
Publication Date: January 1, 2014
Genre: Fantasy Sci-fi
Raymond Bolton describes his writing as a ‘science fiction/fantasy genre bender with a touch of steam punk thrown in for good measure.’ He has created a fantasy world which is entering the industrial steam age and is under attack from outer space. Raymond’s favorite character to write is the outlaw, Pithien Dur, a victim of circumstance who possesses integrity, a sense of justice, and a likeable bad-ass attitude.
Raymond is now working on the trilogy prequel to Awakening, and then has plans to make this first book into a trilogy, so plenty more tales to come in this series.
When not writing, Raymond has a busy life as a hair stylist, jetting across the States to clients in far-flung places. All the time spent in airports and planes gives him time to be creative with his books.
Raymond enjoys being a member of the Fantasy Sci-Fi Network and included a great FSFN signing pic in the interview.
