SKARAN – THE SEQUEL TO TIENNADOR NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK TOO!

Heather King and Alex Charlton return in Skaran, the sequel to Tiennador

Well, I’m loving this.  All my scribblings are becoming available in paperback as well as in Kindle! Having spent ages writing these things, it’s so nice to be able to inflict it all on the world at large.

So here’s my second offering – SKARAN:

“Sometimes being a paranormal investigator isn’t all fun and games, especially when there’s a blood thirsty demon out to get you. When Heather and Alex discover that the Clans of Tiennador are plotting against them they decide it’s time for drastic action… but at what cost?”

If you are feeling so inclined to follow up Tiennador with a copy of Skaran to see what Heather and Alex get up to next, and you want to get your hands on a luverly papery paperback copy, you can do so here:

PAPERBACK COPY OF SKARAN

Or if you’re in the mood to be Kindlised, you can get a Kindle copy here:

KINDLE COPY OF SKARAN

Go on, you know you want to…

Cheers everyone!

TIENNADOR – NOW AVAILABLE IN LOVELY PAPERY PAPERBACK FORMAT!

TIENNADOR

I probably shouldn’t say this, but I am easily pleased.  It’s true.  So when one of my bloggy writer friends, Kay Glass, mentioned she has her literary creations available in paperback format, courtesy of Create Space on Amazon, I must confess I almost tap danced on the table with glee, because that meant that it was now possible for me to do the same! Woohoo!

Kindles are great – they’re light, easy, everyone on the train on the way into work of a morning is glued to them!  But I love paper.  Lovely, lovely papery paperbacks that I can hold in my hands and bury my nose in and, I’m guessing, I’m not the only one who feels this way.  So, I am now delighted to announce that Tiennador is available in paperback format (at a sensible price!).  I hope some of you might be tempted to purchase a copy (hey, who called me pushy? Quiet there in the back row!)…

So, what’s Tiennador all about then?:

“First rule of an investigation – always go in pairs.”

These words come to haunt paranormal investigator, Heather King, when she reluctantly agrees to let her best friend and colleague, Lynette Matthews, go off on her own to investigate supernatural goings on deep in London’s West End. When Lynette goes missing and an egotistical private investigator is brought in to track down the unfortunate woman, Heather can’t believe things can possibly get any worse… until she meets the bloodthirsty clans of the Tiennador Lands.

Caught up in a desperate race to save Lynette’s life as well as her own, time is running out to reach the Fortress of Kirator before hell is unleashed on earth.

Best wishes.

NANOWRIMO – THE WRITING MARATHON – WHAT WAS I THINKING!?

What on earth is NaNoWriMo? Well, for those of you who have a great idea for a book but have been putting it off and putting it off, this is your chance to get on with it and GET IT DONE!

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month: http://www.nanowrimo.org) is exactly what it says on the tin. You write 1667 words a day ( which equates to 50,000 a month) for the whole of November (not as gruelling as it sounds oddly enough) and by the end of the month you have the basis of your novel to pick over and rewrite at your leisure – but at least a vast majority of the work is done! The idea is to just write. Don’t delete anything. If you hate something so much you can’t bear to look at it, rest assured that you can change it later – so if you wish you hadn’t made Aunt Fanny a nymphomaniac or you’ve given your pet dog the ability to make animals out of balloons and SO wish you hadn’t, you can sort it out during your rewriting sessions at a later date.

I’ve had an idea for a romantic comedy brewing away for a long time, and once my son arrived I thought it was an idea that was going to have to sit on the back burner for years to come because I just wasn’t going to have the time to do anything about it – but not so. Here we are, half way through November and I’ve written…31874 words so far. I write a little bit on the train of a morning whilst other commuters either stare over my shoulder to see what I’m doing (some of my best witticisms emerge like this because I make it a mission to see if I can squeeze at least one giggle out of someone reading what I write) and either finish my quota at lunch or when my lad’s gone to bed at night. It doesn’t take long for the word count to add up and it’s not taken over my life.

One thing I would say, it helps to have an idea of how the story is going to go before you start NaNoWriMo – I think if I’d just sat down and started rambling away without any idea of where the story was going, I’d have struggled a bit to keep it going.

The novel is going well so far, and I suspect it could well end up featuring on my Amazon Kindle page next year some time (once I’ve ripped it apart, sewn it back together and changed all the characters at least three times).

And yes, I couldn’t help myself: there is a small element of paranormalness in there somewhere – well, you wouldn’t want it any other way would you?

I’ll check in with you soon to let you know whether my novel’s got the better of me or if I managed to reach that golden 50,000 words finish line… wish me luck!
