About James Calbraith

James Calbraith is a Poland-born Scottish writer of history-adjacent novels: a historical fantasy “The Year of the Dragon” saga, and a historical fiction series, “The Song of Ash”.

Growing up in communist Poland on a diet of powdered milk, “Lord of the Rings” and soviet science-fiction, he had his first story published at the ripe age of eight. After years of bouncing around Polish universities, he moved to London in 2007 and started writing in English. Now lives in Edinburgh, hoping for an independent Scotland.

His debut historical fantasy novel, “The Shadow of Black Wings“, has reached Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award semi-finals in 2012. “The Year of the Dragon” saga sold over 30,000 copies worldwide.

His new historical fiction saga, “The Song of Ash” has been on top of Amazon’s Bestseller lists in UK for months.

  2. I’m so glad you decided to Podcast “The Shadow of Black Wings“… I’m most of the way through it and am loving it!

    Please, oh please, think about Pod-casting the rest of the series as well 😉

    Congrats on it hitting the Historical Fantasy bestsellers list! That’s an AMAZING accomplishment!

  3. Your writing and sales success is inspiring. I lived in Budapest, Hungary for awhile and traveled around Eastern Europe. Thankfully, it was after the Berlin Wall fell, so I didn’t have to live on powdered milk while there!

      1. It’s one of the awards that get passed around from blog-to-blog. 🙂 Hope you’re having a great holiday!
