My main source of inspiration!!

πŸ“š As a follow-up to my last book post, I’d like to list another chunk of my previous reads, but these are extra special to me, and I’ll explain why πŸ₯°

πŸ“š Ever since I started writing professionally, reading hasn’t quite been the same. Not in a bad way, mind you, but it’s different alright. I take so much more away from books these days than I ever did before.

πŸ“š Therefore, I thought I would list some of the books and mangas that have offered me something new, or have otherwise inspired me – either through fantastic prose, amazing world-building, intriguing mythos and lore, or killer action scenes.

πŸ“š Here is the complete list:
– The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold
– Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
– To Ride Hell’s Chasm by Janny Wurts
– Legend by David Gemmell
– Waylander by David Gemmell
– Lion of Macedon by David Gemmell
– The Ancient Magus’ Bride by Kore Yamazaki
– Inuyasha by Rumiko Takahashi
– Berserk by Kentaro Miura

πŸ“š I wholeheartedly recommend these to anyone looking for a pleasant escape from the real world! πŸ˜…

πŸ“š And David Gemmell, especially, will always be close to my heart as a gateway drug into adult and heroic fantasy πŸ˜‚β€οΈ

My Social Media Reads 2020

πŸ“š 2020 is finally behind us! And like so many others, I’ve decided to list some of my reads from the past year πŸ₯°

πŸ“š These are all books I’ve somehow stumbled across through social media, where I’ve connected with the authors, expanding my horizon when it comes to reads β€οΈ

πŸ“š I have mentioned some of these before, but they’re worth noting again, for the authors of these books are absolutely awesome!!

πŸ“š Here is the complete list:
– The Linguist by C F Welburn
– Divinity’s Twilight: Rebirth by Christopher Russell
– Blood of Vengeance by Angel Haze
– Cider for Harborland by Michael Evan & JMD Reid
– Underbelly by Karen Crawford
– Angel’s Nemesis by JC Seal
– Going Down by Lady Jaguar
– The Wrath of Raghnall by Shauna Richmond
– Cool-Shronk: The Tale of the Onion Knight by Joshua Grant

πŸ“š I love you all, my fellow indie authors! β€οΈ

Welcome, 2021!

❄️ Welcome January, and welcome 2021! β„️

❄️ The first day of the new year is here! I – for one – will not let it go to waste! I’ve got plenty planned for this year, not in the least with the scheduled relaunch of my The Light of Darkness series πŸ˜πŸ™

❄️ I’ll post more on the subject going forward, with release dates and other things, but for now – here is the updated cover for my prequel Righteous Dawn. The font and series name has been changed to match the brand new covers for books 1-3. I will be posting those here in the next few days πŸ₯°

❄️ Don’t forget this prequel is free to download if you sign up to my newsletter! Link is available in my bio β€οΈ

Happy New Year!

❄️ Happy New Year everyone! πŸ₯‚πŸŽ‰βœ¨

❄️ I know 2020 has been hard, and I won’t jinx 2021 by saying it can’t get worse, so I’ll just πŸ€

❄️ However!! I would still like to wish you all a pleasant evening and fingers crossed for a turnaround soon β€οΈ Stay safe!! β€οΈ

Fourth December Update – Plotting!

❄️ December update – week 4 β„️

❄️ The holidays means busy times for all of us, and it wasn’t any different for me. I’ve not written much, but I have managed to plot out book 5 and made a start on plotting book 6 of the Light of Darkness series πŸ™ Now, I will likely leave the rest of the plotting for my pantser self and just get to writing, kicking off the new year with renewed speed πŸ˜ I hope πŸ€žπŸ˜‚
