A novel by James Ellis
Bath-based Oxford alumnus, James Ellis, is seeking Patrons for his second novel, An Other’s Look, which is being published by Unbound Books. Patrons are a community of book lovers who bring new voices to published writing by pre-ordering digital or paperback copies of the book. In return their names are published in both editions, they join the Unbound community and they have direct on-line contact with the author. If you would like to join James on his journey from submission to publication then please go to https://unbound.com/books/an-others-look/. And you can find out more about James at jamesauthorellis.com.
James lives near Bath and writes fiction. An Other’s Look is his second novel. The first, The Wrong Story, was published by Unbound in 2017, and he is currently working on his third novel.
He has had a number of short stories and flash fiction published as well as a travelogue of his journey through Central America. He is a Real Writers prizewinner, a Carers UK prizewinner and highly commended in British Fantasy Society short story awards.
James also provides a structural and developmental editing service for fiction writers, creative writing mentoring for unpublished writers, and creative writing workshops.
In the past he has worked as a technical author, a user-experience designer, an information consultant for NGOs and charitable organisations, and as an information and solution designer for an outsourcing and consultancy company.
He holds an MSt in Creative Writing from the Universoty of Oxford and spent his placement reading submissions at an Oxford literary agency. He is a member of the Society of Authors and the International Flann O’Brien Society. At their academic conference in Prague he presented his paper: Boundaries between Fiction and Real-life – an area he still finds interesting.
