The Grim Tidings Podcast: Mark Lawrence Part 2

The conclusion of the first ever podcast with Mark Lawrence can be listened to here!

Grey Sister, the second Book of the Ancestor, is available now in various countries!

In the epic conclusion of our first-time-ever-on-a-podcast interview with international bestselling author Mark Lawrence, we attempt to define Grimdark by finding the common link between the top MOST GRIMDARK novels as voted by Mark blog readers; we look at the big picture of Grimdark and whether it’s a viable commercial market or just a collective of passionate enthusiasts; we talk about the Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off and how Mark got interested in assisting authors with getting their books into the hands of more readers; tips for SPFBO success, writerly advice, what’s next for Mark and more!
