Meet John Hundley:

At the tender age of 60, John Hundley converted a manuscript he’d been working on to a mobi file and emailed it to a friend, asking her to load it on her Kindle in her spare time and give him some feedback. A few days later he found a message on his phone. An excited voice said, “This is really good. I can’t believe it was written by someone who just all of a sudden decided to write a book!”

It wasn’t. It was the culmination of a life-long dream.

John had been a lover of books even before he learned to read. His mother regularly read such classics to him and his brother as The Wizard of Oz and The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come, and he came to love the pictures that would form in his head simply from listening to the words. He decided right then he wanted to be the one to write the words that would paint pictures in the minds of others.

He did write. In school he was always ready with an idea for a creative writing assignment, regularly published in the school literary magazines, and graduated the University of Georgia with the dream of writing and teaching science fiction at some major university.

But life got in the way. Things like marriage, a family software business, kids, and the very real necessity for a regular income. Over the years, he started writing projects time and again, but never finished. Gradually, the dream died.

Until, suddenly, in the fall of 2010, he found himself unemployed, divorced, and back in school. A thirty-year career writing software had come to an end when the economy went South and the company he was working for closed its local office and laid everyone off. It was a blessing in disguise. He had some time on his hands, and he had a laptop, and a lost dream was awakened.

He lives and writes in Salisbury, North Carolina, USA.

The Book

Once a humble priest, now a tormented wanderer. Will Jordell Torvin succumb to his own corruption, or will he wield a divine destiny to save his world from despair?
Once a distinguished priest serving in the grand temple of Askela, Jordell Torvin now walks a very different path. Haunted by a vision of a sword that holds the power to prevent a catastrophic war, he has spent the last three years in pursuit of this elusive artifact, even as his magic use subjects him to a creeping corruption that is slowly eating him alive.

After rescuing a gravely injured Barbaraq, Jordell, alongside his ally Laith, makes his way back to the Forest of Opiya, hoping to reunite with old comrades. But the tranquillity of their former camp is shattered, embroiled in a brewing conflict with the mysterious fae who have emerged from the depths of the forest.

With every use of his magic, the corruption gnawing at Jordell grows stronger. And as the realm of Levanthria teeters on the edge of ruin, Jordell faces an almost insurmountable challenge. He must find the prophesied sword, bring peace to the warring factions, and halt his own decay—all while the fate of Levanthria is in jeopardy.

A Stone Of Destiny And Despair is the heart-pounding fourth book in the Tales of Levanthria fantasy-retelling series. If you delight in immersive world-building, multifaceted characters, and relentless quests, then you’ll be enthralled by A.P Beswick’s captivating tale.

Title Of Book: Unearthly Magik (Black Cauldron Detective Agency Book 1)
By: Matilda Reyes
Genre: Fantasy
Sub-Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Futuristic, Dark Fantasy


Rivals. Impossible cases. Supernatural war.

Ava Ramos is one furious mage. New York City is her town, and she and her Black Cauldron Detective Agency know every beat of the supernatural underground. Need an object found or secrets uncovered? Ava and her partners are the mages to contact. A former rival, Tasis, shows up with a case that proves Ava just might not know everything about her town.

The Lauret Grimoire, the oldest known compendium of the supernatural, has gone missing from one of the most closely guarded magikal libraries in the city. The mages assigned to guard the damned thing can’t find any clues. Tasis is one of those mages.

Now, Tasis is calling in the last favor Ava owes him. Ava never breaks her word, so she and the Black Cauldron Detective Agency take the impossible case.

Can they find The Lauret Grimoire before anyone in the supernatural underground gets their hands on it? Or will a supernatural war start in Ava’s backyard?



Someone was getting hurt tonight.

I didn’t want to do it, but from everything I read in my target’s file, this man wasn’t the type to go down quietly. Though my agency usually didn’t take jobs that required getting our hands dirty, the money was too good, and business was slow. He was a bad man, allegedly, so making a few bucks from this transaction didn’t bother me much.


That was what my partners and I decided to call this manhunting mission for an even scarier guy, a mobster, just to ease our collective conscience.

I shook my head and focused. One reliable thing about Manhattan was how much time riders spent standing on platforms waiting for trains. The other thing was that there
were always, always people waiting with you no matter what the hour. Tonight was no different, and that worried me. If my target fought dirty, there was a risk of casualties—
too many people around who might get hurt.

I smoothed my long, wavy, black hair into a secure ponytail, then pretended to take a few selfies with the poster of some godawful movie that my best friend made me see behind me. The shorter than average height, with thick, light brown hair parted to the left and neatly trimmed above his ears. His face had no discerning features that would have linked him
to one ethnicity or another. His skin was warm olive, the kind that darkened ten shades in the sun, and his round, brown eyes told me nothing as they met mine.


After thirty-six hours of following this man around, he finally made me. Exhausted as I was, there was no excuse for this. I was a damn good detective, and I should have been on top of my game. I’d beat myself up later for not cornering him earlier and saving myself the trouble of a fight.

The subway station was danker than usual, a mix of trash leaking across the platforms and into the tracks, marijuana, and the stink of someone eating something unfortunate like fish. I glanced at the puddles of grossness I’d have to avoid, both trash and the creepy men who
watched my every move. They didn’t scare me, but I felt terrible for the women who dealt with this shit every day. Most Ordinaries were terrible beings with no regard for one another or the earth. I liked to think I was a good person, violent tendencies aside, and sometimes I wished I could take some time off from my day job and go all vigilante around the city. I was a Gray Mage and a damned talented one at that. No one would know the difference. Ordinaries would vaguely remember seeing a blur. Other Mages would talk behind my
back, but I was used to that. No one got into my line of work to make friends, and I was no exception.

The fact that he wasn’t turning any heads helped him blend in with the crowd of increasingly disgusting-smelling Ordinaries. Cripes, didn’t these people bathe? And why the hell were they crowding me? Why couldn’t they be like the few Ordinaries I liked?

I wasn’t sure what exactly this man had done to get on Antonio Vespucci’s shit list, and I didn’t care all that much to be honest. Vespucci alluded to the target being a bad, bad man, the kind that desperately needed to be taken off the streets. Coming from the Mage world’s most notorious mobster, which was saying a lot.

I pretended to take another picture, pursing my lips like an idiot, and snapped as many frames of my target as I could. It wasn’t enough to fool him. He may not have known who I was, but he had to have known people were looking for him. He shook out his arms and legs as if preparing for a fight.

Damnit. He was going to run, and I hated running.

The man watched me for another long moment, likely trying to figure out if I were an actual threat and found me lacking. Ooh, that boiled my blood, so I did what any pissed
off Mage would do. I flipped up the gray hood of my jacket and waited for him to respond. He gasped, and I knew that he’d just figured out exactly who I was.


In the Magikal world, the gray hood was symbolic of my allegiance to no one and nothing outside of my own coven, not even Mages of the same elemental kinship. Gray Mages
worked for their own interests and nothing more. We determined whether or not to get involved in an issue based on what we got out of the situation. We tended to be the most skilled and dangerous because we played with all types of magik, the left and right hands, good and bad, black and white, blah, blah, blah, all that crap that good little Mages feared.
I tended to engage in New York City’s underground supernatural world, and that meant I knew all the dirty tricks. I also wasn’t above a good fistfight, so there was that.
