Blog tour: Breaking the Lore by Andy Redsmith

Blog tour: Breaking the Lore by Andy Redsmith

Hi there! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve had time to post (working in a chocolate shop at Easter is even busier than working retail at Christmas, so I’ve been struggling to recover) but I’m glad to be back and taking part in the blog tour for Breaking the Lore.

I was originally hoping to review Breaking the Lore as well as posting a spotlight for it, but unfortunately I’m only 10% through it (I wasn’t kidding about how exhausted I’ve been!) so this is solely going to be a spotlight post for today. Pop back in a couple of weeks and I should have a review up.

The cover for Breaking the Lore.

A magical, mischievous mystery perfect for fans of Douglas Adams and Ben Aaronovitch.

How do you stop a demon invasion… when you don’t believe in magic?

Inspector Nick Paris is a man of logic and whisky. So staring down at the crucified form of a murder victim who is fifteen centimetres tall leaves the seasoned detective at a loss… and the dead fairy is only the beginning.

Suddenly the inspector is offering political asylum to dwarves, consulting with witches, getting tactical advice from eves and taking orders from a chain-smoking talking crow who, technically, outranks him.

With the fate of both the human and magic worlds in his hands Nick will have to leave logic behind and embrace his inner mystic to solve the crime and stop an army of demons from invading Manchester!

If you’re interested in reading Breaking the Lore, you can purchase a copy via Amazon, Kobo, Google Books or Apple Books. Breaking the Lore is Andy Redsmith’s debut novel, and the first book in the Inspector Paris Mystery series, so this is the perfect time to get on board.

About the author:

Andy Redsmith was born in Liverpool and grew up in Runcorn. For university he moved the enormous distance to Salford and has lived in Manchester ever since. He says the people there are great, but we don’t talk about football.

He worked for many years as a project manager in the computing industry, a job which really is every bit as exciting as it sounds. Eventually the call of writing became too hard to ignore and he went off to do that instead. Over the years in IT he worked with some very clever people and some complete weirdos, none of whom bear any resemblance to the characters in his books. Honest.

He has a wonderful wife, a great son, and a loft full of old Marvel comics. One day he’ll get round to selling them. That’s the comics, not the family.

A huge thanks to Canelo for allowing me to get involved in this blog tour, and to you for putting up with me pulling yet another disappearing act. I should be back to regularly scheduled programming soon, I promise!
