Bradley Beaulieu

BRADLEY P. BEAULIEU fell in love with fantasy from the moment he began reading The Hobbit in third grade. While Bradley earned a degree in computer science and engineering and worked in the information technology field for years, he could never quite shake his desire to explore other worlds. He began writing his first fantasy novel in college. It was a book he later trunked, but it was a start, a thing that proved how much he enjoyed the creation of stories. It made him want to write more. He went on to write The Lays of Anuskaya series as well as The Song of Shattered Sands series. He has published work in the Realms of Fantasy Magazine, Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, Writers of the Future 20, and several anthologies. He has won the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Award and earned a Gemmell Morningstar Award nomination. Learn more about Bradley by visiting his website,, or on Twitter at @bbeaulieu.

Amy Allworden


AMY ALLWORDEN lives for adventure, or at least mild action that doesn't require a lot of bending. She grew up playing Dungeons & Dragons, reading Forgotten Realms books, and attending renaissance festivals and reenactment societies. Armed with these formative experiences and enriched by a BSc in Wildlife Biology as well as a year spent teaching English in Japan, she combined it all into a high-powered pastiche that fuels her creativity. Immolation is the first book in her debut series, Raven Vs Crow. For more information on the author or her novels, go to or @amyallworden on Twitter, TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram.
