Bristol author Graeme White has published his first book, Penned In. It is available on Kindle.
Penned In is one of the first books I edited and and it has to be one of the most quirky and fun books yet.
Where do you think magic really lives? Do you think it lurks in isolated and ancient areas away from our sprawling cities? If so, you’d be wrong. Magic exists, is aware of us, and connects to our world by the last thing you would consider but no doubt own.
Join Steve as he finds out the truth to a question he certainly didn’t ask to have answered, and as his life undergoes a complete upheaval in New City; an unoriginal name for a more than unique metropolis.
I’ve known Graeme for years so when he asked me to take a look at his book I was a bit cautious. It’s not easy to tell friends what you really think of their writing. It may sound a bit cheesy but I loved the book from the start. When the main character Steve thinks the best way to deal with his problems is to take a nap but then finds himself on a subway train that is incredibly futuristic, I knew there were some quirky and fresh ideas to come.
A lot of the story is so unexpected and curious that it’s hard to explain. There’s a mix of Douglas Adams combined with YA and fantasy genres. I liked it and I hope you do too.
