Read about the author and her bookish adventures!

Category: Writing (Page 2 of 7)

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

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

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˜‚

December update #3

❄️ December update – week 3 β„️

❄️ Smaller update as to amount of things done: been editing, finished redrafting the new short story and sent it for test reading (even had some promising feedback in return), then I’ve tried to get through some of my tbr πŸ˜‚πŸ“š But it’s like a damned hydra – for each book I read, another 3 pop up!!! πŸ€£
