In a world without justice.

In time of fear.

One teenage girl.

In a desperate race across Ireland.

To save her friends

And her people.

From the Raven Queen.


My name is R J Madigan, my first novel The Sword of Air follows the story of Niamh Kelly, a girl who is unaware she is half Fae and half human. Set against the achingly beautiful backdrop of Irish mythology this novel promises readers a journey through light and shadow that will grip like a vice.

I started my blog as a resource for aspiring writers, covering different aspects of punk publishing, life as an author and literary hot topics.

  1. Ooooh sounds fabulous! Thats the great thing about our digital age and the new wave of e-publishing, a book can be so much more than words in a page or screen. Congrats on innovating the reading experience!

    • Thanks Ali. You are so right and I think young people who are growing up exposed to so much more visual media than we ever were demand more from a book now. Take care and stay in touch.

    • Hi Ali,

      I am still really enjoying reading your blog. Congratulations on your new collaboration with Jane. Love stories from Irish myth sounds right up my street.

      I’ve been thinking about what you said about featuring on your Friday fiction and I think it is something I would like to do. The Sword of Air also has its roots in Irish Mythology so I feel it is something that would probably appeal to the readers of your blog. If you would still like to feature The Sword of Air on your Friday fiction please send me details of what I need to do. It would probably need a bit of an intro on the whole multi-touch iBook thing too.



    • Thanks for the follow Krista. I’m new to self publishing so it is great to make friends with bloggers and writers trying to do the same thing. Your work looks really intriguing too. It will be lovely to stay in touch. Take care. Rae.

    • Hi Krista, I was wondering as you liked the book trailer for The Sword of Air so much if you would be interested in reviewing The Sword of Air on your blog. You do need access to an iPad or Mac as the multi-touch technology is so new it doesn’t work on kindle, PC or other platforms. It might be an interesting topic for your blog as multi-touch iBooks are still so new. Let me know if you are interested and I’ll send you a free promo code. If you want to know a bit more about the book first you could always check out the fantastic vlog review ‘the bookish blonde’ has just done for The Sword of Air on Take care. Rae.

      • Alas I’m not a MAC user, otherwise I would LOVE to! It sounds like such a fascinating concept! However, is there’s another way I can help you out (a Q&A on my blog, maybe?) we can look into that!

      • Hi Krista,
        Thanks for getting back to me so soon. I would love to do a Q&A on your blog. Sounds like great fun. Also I would be happy to return the favour if you would like to do the same on my blog or guest blog your own piece instead. Send me the details for the Q and A and we can go from there. I look forward to hearing from you. Take care. Rae.

  2. Hi, can your book be watched/read on iPhone too?
    I was just lately thinking how good it would be to make a book with soundtracks… when the music the author chooses is played during reading. Of course that raises copyright questions as well, but still it’d be so good!

    • Hi,

      I’m afraid the technology does not work on iPhone at the moment. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you will follow us to see the progress of our multi-touch iBook. Good luck with your future writing projects. Rae
