There’s a lot of discussion going around relating to the difference between characters. Which are better to write, more enjoyable, what motivates them? In my view, it’s all about perspective. I’m not sure there are many so-called, ‘bad guys/gals’ who truly believe they are the evil ones in their own story. Everyone has their own… Continue reading Protagonist and Antagonist…
Hey there! As you’ve probably guessed by the title, I’ve got a story coming out soon on Kindle. Iron Blood is set in a completely different world to my other books and is about reflection, pain and loss. It’s still a Fantasy based story, but I’ve gone for a different theme. Not Steampunk or Gaslight. Iron… Continue reading New Story!
Hey there! Lately, I haven’t been blogging as much as I would normally, mainly due to the operation and also because I’ve been struggling to think of interesting ideas to post! I’m considering posting about the research I do for my WIP’s, such as Japanese culture, weapons and mythology. This will be alongside all the regular posts… Continue reading Writing. Editing. Publishing.
I’m really excited, but it’s also difficult not being able to reveal the amazing artwork that’s being completed even as I type this post! It’s odd, though, and also brilliant, how having an idea in your head and then discussing things with the artist, everything changes, for the better. The cover for Oath of God is… Continue reading Book Covers and the Editing Process…
Surrounded by piles of laundry, (most of it clean, I might add) and I find myself working on Oath of God, tweaking a conversation, adding additional detail, a bit of richness to the scenery and a dash of history, all while breathing in the fresh scent of washing powder. This is the backdrop to a stay-at-home… Continue reading Inspiration and Impressions
No matter how hard I try to squeeze more hours out of my day I just can’t seem to get everything done. I’d like a time machine/tardis to give me a bit of extra of work time. I’ve got a lot of writing on my plate and two wips running alongside each other. Furniture projects… Continue reading Lots of Plans…Not Enough Time
Not mine, though! 🙂 Thought I’d post something that is a little nostalgic. How the artwork for Vastian Lore came about. From a rough sketch with very little colour, right up to the complete cover. This was a commisoned piece, which I believe suits the novella and the story within.
Ok, so far, I’ve given you all a sneak peek at the completed front cover for Vastian Lore and yesterday I offered a taster of what it might look like with a spine and what the design for the back would be like… Now, I’d like to introduce you all to the blurb…Situated on the… Continue reading Nearing Completion
Well, I posted the complete front cover for Vastian Lore a couple of days ago and that will be for the ebook and paperback, but with the latter, there needs to be a back cover for the blurb, oh, yeah, and to hold the pages in!! Ta-Da… The artist who has been working so hard on… Continue reading And There’s More…
This is the complete front cover for Vastian Lore. Just got the spine and back to finish, but it’s getting there!!
