I write compelling characters, and their epic journeys and unbroken spirits have staying power.
What I can't promise is a good night's sleep (sorry not sorry) or a tamed TBR.
You love fantasy, right? Good, you're in the right place. There's just so many worlds to explore, from Eddings to Pullman to Jordan, worlds filled with possibility and potential. I'm a fan of the favourites, and I also love fresh new voices on the indie scene!
My series are fresh take on your favourite tropes, making you fall in love with them all over again.
You can find:
Enemies to inseperable friends
Twinned souls with a twist
A fresh take on the fae
Stories with lots of heart, a bit dark and ballsy
Characters with staying power
This is where the worlds open up for you. I cannot wait to come with you on your journey.
I’m Becky James, a USA Today Bestselling Author, and I create astounding stories with staying power. From the first page to the very last, feel the characters triumph over trials and celebrate the changes they conquer, both inside and out.
I've been writing since I learnt to put pencil to paper, and in 2019 a story just wouldn't let me go. It turned into The King's Swordsman, one side of a sequence of stories which I hope to do justice to.
This is the publication order of my work across all my series, for information only.
The Tenets in the Tattoos
Published August 2021, immediately getting the Indie Books We Love stamp from LoveBooks.co.uk.
Prequel novella in third person, from a young Gavain's point of view. This book came together from a series of prompts over a week!
The Bind of Blood and Bonds
The darkest book I have ever written, I cried every day drafting this. Avail yourself of the content warnings if you need to.
A Dram of Freshwater
The Limit of the Lonely Man
The Tempered Turns of Time
Early 2022 saw me release a novella (still 50+k words!) set in a new realm: rare fae and curious selkies collide as the fae world fades.
Spring 2022 had me scrambling to turn book 3 into two books (this and The Tempered Turns of Time) as a surprise arc appeared!
...But the scramble was worth it as book 4 was worth waiting for! I celebrated Tenet's first birthday with the publication of the fourth book in the series.
Tuniel: The Cold Mage
A companion novella to The Bind of Blood and Bonds, this is the story told from Tuniel's point of view. She really wanted her side out there!
The Shadow of Death
September 2022 saw the release of Dark Tides Book1, which catapulted me into USA Today Bestselling Author status!
