Ken Hughes

This week author Ken Hughes interviewed me on his blog.

Ciara Ballintyne Sings for Her Supper… Er, Cover Art?

MM Stalking the Deon

Recently I was hosted on the blog of my cover artists, Lydia Kurnia and Isaia of Worlds Beyond Art. I actually work with Lydia in my day job, and I mentioned to her my love of karaoke. So when they interviewed me, they managed to swindle me into something I haven’t agreed to ever before – to give them a recording of me singing!

To check out the interview, and hear me sing, drop on over to Worlds Beyond Art. Don’t forget to check out their art while you’re there – you can see the art they’ve done for Confronting the Demon and Stalking the Demon here on my site.
