What I’m publishing next …

Dragonscale Clippings

I joined Patreon initially to get my novels about Isu Magan published. I released Vintrig’s Kingdom in November 2017 and Vintrig’s Throne is due for release shortly!
Although I did a lot of the work myself and managed to call in favours regarding the formatting, pagination and artwork, I needed a source of income to pay for promotion. I wasn’t expecting a massive amount, just enough to enable me to pay for the first book to be promoted in order to increase sales.
Now that Vintrig’s Throne is due to be published very soon (!) I need more money to promote it in a variety of ways. As I am currently self-employed in my new business, it’s more important to me than ever to be able to continue to promote my books.
I have so many more books to share with the world; my fantasy series “The Kaerling”, my poetry…

I write like Ray Bradbury!

The train was standing silently, waiting for the signal, there was something charming about that, the windows visible in the darkness, like small boxes of lights, the doors.

A man or a woman standing in the door sometimes, looking out, maybe they too were looking at the buildings and our windows, wishing they were home!

Or just like her imagining what people were doing in their homes, like she imagined what they were thinking, doing or where were they going!

Trains always stir imagination, don’t they? She remembered her childhood, she used to lie in bed and listen to the rumbles of wheels of late night train,
thackata thackata thack…

a steady rhythm, like music, she always wondered how the driver feels when he drives at night, miles after miles, the passengers fall asleep but he stays on guard, watching, just as much as headlight allowed, surrounded by an ocean of darkness, sometimes a station passed by, then miles of absolute darkness. It always unleashed her wildest imagination, craziest fantasies!

The author blushingly says:
