In the October issue of Writing Magazine Andy McNab is featured as the Writer Behind the Lines while the star interview with Rachel Billington examines the new challenge of historical fiction. Jo Unwin writes from the agent’s desk, crime and erotica author Maxim Jakubowski talks about being unshaven and antisocial, while Margaret McAllister reveals how she got published. There is a profile of science fiction writer Lee Battersby and tips on making your fantasy fiction credible. All that and my usual publishing and market news. As the official blurb has it:
