Jacey’s Kingdom author Dave Weaver interviewed on Radio Verulam’s Drivetime with Danny Smith

On Thursday evening Dave had a chat with Radio Verulam’s Danny Smith on his Drivetime show about the upcoming paperback publication (end of March but available on Kindle and Kobo now) of his new fantasy novel ‘Jacey’s Kingdom’.
They also discussed Dave’s three self-published collections of short stories, his thoughts on self-publication versus established publishing companies (Dave thought there were benefits to both approaches) and how to start writing your own pieces.
On the subject of writers just starting out, short stories before the first novel was the view. Try lot’s of practice by, for instance, joining a local writers’ group (Verulam Writers’ Circle would be an excellent example), receiving group critique and entering group and national short story competitions for the experience.
The link to Radio Verulam’s blog is here and the actual broadcast, available for another week, is here (WEST HERTS DRIVETIME Thursday 28th 5pm slot, actual interview starts at 5.32pm).

About Dave Weaver

Dave Weaver, a graphic designer, was born in darkest Surrey. He took quite a long time to begin writing. About a decade ago he joined the local Verulam Writers’ Circle and has since had a number of short stories published in various anthologies and webzines. Much of his writing hovers on the shifting borders between fantasy and reality. He holds a particular fascination for the uncertain times of Britain’s Dark Ages, no doubt inspired by the ruins of the Roman town of Verulamium near where he lives with his family and a cat called Trillian. Jacey’s Kingdom is his first novel.
