Here’s the image for the front cover of my forthcoming paperback, Fire Daughter.

This book contains volumes four – six of The Kaerling. You can buy Fire Daughter in these 3 separate e-books: Olin Heon, Hidden Lands and Aura Vere.

But, if like me, you prefer the feel of a book in your hands, Fire Daughter will be available in paperback format in May 2021!

What’s Fire Daughter about? When Lored escapes from the Isle of Yrjo, he discovers his problems have only just started.

I’m taking a short break for a few weeks but I’ll be back blogging right here at the beginning of May! See you all then!

Catch Up – March 2021

I had a couple of pieces of poetry published back in December that I didn’t get a chance to share properly. So here they are!

Thank you to Sarah Connor at Sarah Writes Poems for publishing Finger of Light.

And thank you also to Spillwords for publishing Shortest Day!

I’ve also recently published Volume Six of The Kaerling series. If you’ve not yet started reading The Kaerling, Aura Vere is a good way to get into the story!

Aura Vere brings together the characters in previous volumes in a climatic dénouement that sets the scene for the continuation of the epic saga that is The Kaerling. You can watch my dynamic book trailer HERE!

And, another of my books, Dragonscale Leggings, is reduced from $5.99 to just 99c until 23rd March 2021! Grab it now, before it’s too late!

So far this year, my Newsletter readers got to hear about the launch of Aura Vere before my launch post appeared here on this blog. They’ve also been privy to a character study of Otta, one of the main characters in The Kaerling series. And this month they’ll receive a nonet sequence, Wavesong, accompanied by a beautiful seascape from Jonathon B. Hoyt! If you’ve not yet signed up to my Newsletter, click HERE!

My Patreon supporters got read to sample chapters from Aura Vere before anyone else in January. I’ve also been sharing some of my postcards and poetry including a painting of a dark orb, a crystal gorge and a mountain lake! Donations of $5 a month are currently receiving a series of linked stories set in the First Age of Nirunen about an iendu called Ebkah… And, I’ve also been talking about my expectations for 2021 and what is actually happening to me at the moment. If you’re not yet supporting me on Patreon, sign up today!

February Film Reviews

Today I’m sharing four films that I thoroughly enjoyed watching in 2020. They’re not comfy or cosy and certainly NOT romantic. But they are all different, quirky and unusual – bit like me really!

Bone Tomahawk is defined as western horror. I’d describe it as edgy western; there were only a couple of shocking scenes towards the end and I really enjoyed this tense, visceral story! The acting, cinematography and direction are incredible – it’s a real piece of art. No, it’s not a comfy watch, but I loved the way it was so unpredictable, yet believable. Oh, and Kurt Russell is in it!

Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll is a dynamic, beautifully filmed story of the life of Ian Dury. This film veers from gut-wrenching laughter (the colourful language is hilarious) to absolute tragedy. The songs are richly wicked and Andy Serkis is perfect in his portrayal of this larger than life figure. This is a non-sanitised version of life – I dare you to watch it and not be moved.

I also really enjoyed WestWorld – loved the hints of films to come such as Terminator, 6th Day etc and Yul Brynner was particularly good as the mutated robot! Operation Avalanche is also worth watching – I’ve believed for years that man on the moon was a myth!

By the way, I am not easily shocked and often wonder why films are described as violent. So, if you’re at all squeamish or sensitive, I can’t recommend you watch the above films… Please be aware that I prefer NOT to watch politically correct films or to follow trends. I like to be surprised and challenged.
