UltraCreatives Interview #16: Tee Morris and Philippa Ballantine by J.C. Hutchins

Transient

We'll soon dive back into 7th Son: OBSIDIAN, but it's time for another killer UltraCreatives interview, this one with novelists Tee Morris and Philippa "Pip" Ballantine. These authors have got a first-ever publishing promotion to talk about, as well as writing in the Fantasy genre, their love of history, and a lot more. In this terrific chat, Tee and Pip discuss their new promotion called "Double Trouble," and how you can help them make an impact at Amazon.com on August 8th. It's a double whammy of awesome.
