Fantasy, Lore, and More with R. Lindsay Carter

Hi, I’m indie fantasy author, Melinda Kucsera, and in this episode, R. Lindsay Carter is joining me to talk about the first book in her series, Unfamiliar Territory.

What’s it about?

  • Bounty hunter Cressida Curtain harbors a secret - she’s not entirely human. Her existence holds an ancient evil at bay, a legacy passed down for generations. But she has a business to run hunting bad guys, and preventing the apocalypse won’t stop her.

  • Unfamiliar Territory is the first in a 4-book series of imaginative, action-packed fantasy adventures.

What's in this episode:

  • R. Lindsay Carter reads from Unfamiliar Territory, transporting us to a world of supernatural bounty hunters, fantastical creatures and looming evil.

  • We discuss the fantasy elements and secret legacy that shape Cressida’s story.

  • We journey into the world where the fate of humanity rests on the shoulders of an unlikely heroine who just wants to do her job.

  •  We’ll talk about how Cressida navigates hunting criminals, hiding her true nature, and thwarting an ancient threat - all in a day’s work for a bounty hunter who’s not quite human.

About the interview:

I entered my book, Curse Breaker Enchanted, in the Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off 9 (SPFBO 9) this year and thought it might be cool to interview my fellow entrants. Only 300 books can enter the contest. 10 will advance to the semi-finals, and one will be crowned the winner of SPFBO 9 for 2023. I hope you're cheering for Curse Breaker Enchanted! You can grab a copy for free right now to celebrate.

If you want to get even more involved, join my community on Patreon and start reading book 10, Shards For His Gift, right now. I'm writing what I hope are the final chapters and posting them this weekend.

Epic Fantasy Adventures with Melinda Kucsera
I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author and I narrate chapters from my adventure books, talk about other fantasy books and shows and try my best not to get derailed by the shenanigans of characters who are supposed to be fictional, but they don't stay within the pages of my books. I tell all their secrets and what trouble they get into in between books. Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>
