#Indieapril Author Spotlight: EM Harding

EM Harding

EM Harding is a queer author who hails from Wales. They started writing seriously at the age of eight (they were a very serious child) and received their first rejection letter around the age of nine. EM now holds a BA in English with Creative Writing and an MA in Applied Linguistics (both from the University of Birmingham). They run a writing group known as “The Writeryjig Clubamabob” – a name that even EM can’t spell without looking it up – and they’re an active member of the Twitter #WritingCommunity.
They are also guardian to an illustrious chicken thief named Kit.

Labours of Stone is EM’s second novella. Much the same as the first one, it was a wild ride (particularly with the whole worldwide panini situation going on) and EM will now be napping for the foreseeable future.

Labours of Stone

Day after day, Ephra Stone labours away on trashy romance novels he can’t stand for his nightmarishly pink-obsessed publisher, Halwyn Tân. Ephra’s trapped in a five-book deal from hell and it never seems to end; there’s always one more book to go, one more trope to mangle. And the worst part of it all?

Ephra himself has never been in love.

Every time he catches a whiff of romance, plans mysteriously go awry, dates suddenly have to move away, and Ephra finds himself hopelessly alone again. It’s as if the universe itself has been conspiring against his love life.

That is until, one fateful day, a little birdy leads the way … right into the arms of Ron Brook: sun-kissed god, possible millionaire, and guardian to the world’s most intelligent not-a-dog.

On paper, their relationship makes great material for Ephra’s next romance novel. At least Ephra thinks so. And for once, he’s actually enjoying his writing.

But not everyone is on board with Ephra’s new-found happiness, and Ephra might have to battle more than just some vapid publisher to keep hold of it.
