Welcome to Ink & Magick. I'm your friendly neighborhood witch. What kind of spell can I get for you (or your character) today?
Hello, I'm Coby Spurrier, author of The Chronicles of Avalon: Dragon Knights - Dyrnwyn. I'll take some fire spells today if you got them.
I have all kinds of ways to make fire! I prefer matches, but you could also use flint and steel or a lighter. Modern technology is quite handy. Tell me about your book.
Kobi sets out on a journey with his best friend Sarah and pixie friend Sora, as he searches for more information about a mystical sword called Dyrnwyn. His travels take him to Florin. He takes part in a tournament, befriending Brandon, the son of the King.
You introduced quite a few characters there. Which one of your characters surprised you?
That would probably be Kobi Hael. There's something about the way he makes everyone bond to him.
That's a good quality for a hero to have. Who is your favorite (or least favorite) character and why?
Well to you the truth, I like all my characters equally. But if I had to choose, my favorite character would probably be Catharine Séguier. She has a bit of a mystery about her the makes her fun to write about.
It is a little like asking you to pick your favorite child, isn't it? If you could time-travel, would you travel to the future or the past? Where would you like to go, and why would you choose that time period?
Well, if I could time travel, I would probably go back in time to 5th century Medieval England.
Sounds like a rough time to choose. I hope you're prepared! Your bio says you're a gamer. What games have inspired your writing?
I've been really inspired by the RPG (Role Playing Games) of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim and Dragon Age for my fantasy based books. The Halo series helped to inspire my sci-fi story.
Nice! What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
Well, I really like it when people leave feedback on what parts they liked or disliked and what they would like see in future books.
Don't we all! What can we expect from you next?
I'm currently have many things in the fire, one of which is the continual book for my fantasy series. All I can say is keep your eyes open.
Thanks for stopping by to talk with me today, and good luck in your future endeavors.
