Default Cork Author Selected as Finalist in SPFBO 2016

For those of you with an interest in fantasy fiction or Irish mythology, Irish Imbas Books have had a book selected as a finalist for Mark Lawrence's 2016 SPFBO (Self-Publishing Fantasy Blog Off).

The book (Fionn: Defence of Ráth Bládhma) is the first in a series initiated as an antidote to the 'Celtic Lite' stuff being pumped out by overseas publishers. It seem hard to believe but Irish fiction writers rarely (if ever) write stories based on Irish mythology.

Selected for a shortlist of ten novels (out of 300) you'll never hear the end of it if we actually win.
