The first book in a trilogy of science fiction and fantasy by Andy Livingstone has attracted attention from all over Lanarkshire.
Publisher Harper Collins snapped up Hero Born earlier this year and Andy has been astounded at the response which has brought him many new friends through social media.
Andy hails from Motherwell and now lives in Wishaw and has been excited by the publication of his book, making a dream of many years come true.
He said: “It has been brilliant to be able to tell everyone that my books would be published and of course my family and friends have been excited with me. However, what has amazed me is the response from people in the area who have shown an interest in it as well. Social media is such a useful way for people to watch what is going on, and the number of followers I have on Twitter has risen. I am so grateful to everyone who has shown even the slightest interest”
Hero Born is a fantasy story without the magic, dragons and elves. It is a story that could have happened if history had developed differently.
