Fantasy, Lore, & More: In Sleep You Know
Hi, I'm indie fantasy author, Melinda Kucsera, and in this episode Christiane Knight is joining me to talk about her book, In Sleep You Know.
What’s it about?
Even the grittiest blue collar city has a spark of magic under the surface; but in Baltimore, graffiti holds secret messages and artists are the spellcasters. Abandoned buildings hide ancient beings, and at the local club, you might find yourself rubbing shoulders with menacing and otherworldly creatures. If you know how to look, of course.
In Sleep You Know is a contemporary urban fantasy set in a magical version of Baltimore.
What’s in this episode:
Christiane Knight will transport us into the hidden world of Baltimore's Fae with an excerpt from In Sleep You Know. We'll explore the city's gritty magic, graffiti spells, and dream visits.
We'll discuss Merrick's journey from ordinary guy to Fae ally and guardian of the veil between worlds.
We'll learn about the inspired blend of urban fantasy, faerie lore, and music scene subculture in the Stories of the Eleriannan series.
Join us for a tour through the fantastical side of Charm City, where fate and free will collide.

About your host, Melinda Kucsera:
I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author who wrote and published 20+ books since 2016 across 5 series. I write epic fantasy adventures about families and magical creatures who’re just trying to survive in a world that hates and fears magic but is steeped in it.
My books are full of magic and mayhem, but somehow, even the darkest adventure always ends well. Join me every week for a new story.
What series do I write?
The Curse Breaker series chronicles the adventures of a reluctant mage (Sarn), his son, and the magical creatures they befriend as they fight to save their underground city from monsters, ancient evils, and a variety of magical threats.
The His Angelic Keeper series follows a ghost girl who just wants to save her still-living family, not stop a demon invasion or the literal apocalypse, but she’ll do that too if she must. (This is a humorous series that stars Sarn’s twin sister from the Curse Breaker series).
The Robin of Larkspur series follows Robin, a woman who just wants to save her daughter from the mythical creatures that kidnapped her baby. Sarn tries to help her.
The Divergent Heroes series is supposed to star two knights who are partially disabled but a younger version of Sarn keeps stealing the scenes.
The Curse Breaker’s Companion series which includes side quests, wacky what ifs, and stories from my newsletter of Sarn and his family in our world because they won’t stay inside the epic fantasy books they star in. They’d rather visit me through a portal conveniently located in their cave.
Why am I here?
I want to give you more fun adventures, more often, and create a community of fantasy readers to share ideas with, new stories, artwork, and have fun. So I’m taking the plunge and posting chapters of my upcoming books, bonus content, podcasts, videos, audiobooks, boxed sets, deleted scenes, alternate endings and beginnings, Patron-only stories, and more.
