This is the Books and Authors Fantasy Podcast Episode 167 with Daniel Potter.
Good day and welcome to this episode of the Books and Authors Fantasy and Sci-Fi Podcast. I’m your host, podcaster and author of Fun Fantasy Reads, Jamie Davis. This podcast is exactly what the title says it is, a show focused on everything in fantasy books.
This show will cover everything to do with fantasy books. From Epic Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Sword and Sorcery, and everything in between, expect to find the best and brightest authors from all the various corners of the fantasy book world. Plus we’ll add in a few other very special guests as well along the way.
Kicking things off this week with my author update, I’ve got The Paramedic’s Sorceress, book 9 in the Extreme Medical Services series, with the editor. While it’s there, I’ve started working again on Accidental Monk, book 7 in my Accidental Traveler series.
It’s always a challenge getting back into a book I put on the shelf halfway through. However, I’m loving the stuff I’m reading and think I wrote a pretty compelling start to this book. I’m aiming to finish this draft in the next 30 days or so. I’m looking forward to getting on with this series.
This week on the show, I chat with author Daniel Potter. His most recent book is killing it with readers right now. He writes about creatures that are generally considered highly improbable, from talking cats, flying reptiles made of living metal and people who sprout foot long talons when annoyed. As a biologist he should know better but he’s always ready to leave reality outside if needs too, no matter how much it scratches at the door.
He’s the author of three series, Freelance Familiars, a unique and proper take on urban fantasy from the familiar’s perspective, Rise of the Horned Serpent which is best described as Sky Pirates Versus Dragons, and The Full Moon Medic, where the end of the world is magic.
When he’s not chasing his imagination, his imagination is usually chasing him, whether while he’s cooking lunch for his spouse, playing video game or fending off two cats who always insist its dinner time.
