Legends of the Red Sun – Character Interviews

30 May

Some of you will remember that I did some character interviews with Mark Charan Newton a while back. This was born from me wanting to interview Mark about his work (Nights of Villjamur and City of Ruin) but also wanting to do something new and fresh; I asked Mark how he felt about me sending him questions for some of the characters in the novels and he liked the idea, so we went ahead and came up with some very cool interviews. 🙂

With Mark’s second Legends of the Red Dun novel, City of Ruin, on the threshold of official publication in the UK, and with Nights of Villjamur’s US publication date appraoching, too, I’m going to be re-posting the reviews of Nights of Villjamur and City of Ruin, as well as the interviews I’ve conducted with the characters in the novels.

Here’s what you can look forward to, and when:

On Monday the 31st of May (being tomorrow), you’ll be able to read the interview I did with Randur Estevu,

On the first of June it’ll be Investigator Rumex Jeryd‘s turn,

and on the second of June, Night Guard Commander Brynd Lathraea Adaol.

On the 3rd of June I’ll re-post my review of Nights of Villjamur, and on the 4th, my review of City of Ruin. 🙂

June the 4th is the big pub-date for City of Ruin in the UK, and the paperback edition of Nights of Villjamur will also go on sale on the 4th. Mark officially enters the US on the 29th of June with Nights of Villjamur.

Here are the covers you can look forward to seeing on the shelves:

Book One of the Legends of the Red Sun – Nights of Villjamur (UK paperback edition):

Book Two of the Legends of the Red Sun – City of Ruin (UK hardcover edition)

Book One of the Legends of the Red Sun – Nights of Villjamur (US hardcover edition):

I’m really looking forward to seeing how the US embraces Mark’s work – I’m pretty sure that he’ll be making a huge splash over there!

Be back here tomorrow for the first interview!
