Wednesday Words – Dragonscale Leggings

18 November, 2015
My novel, Dragonscale Leggings, is a parody of the genre I love best; fantasy. In it, I gently poke fun at the Arthurian legends, the common concepts of dragon slayers and dragons and how they should (or shouldn’t) behave.
What would you do if you woke up in a place you did not recognise, with no memory of who you are? Would you fall asleep again and hope to remember when you woke up next? Would you hide yourself away, giving into self-pity? Or would you walk out and explore this strange new world, hoping to recover your memory on the way?
Join the narrator of Dragonscale Leggings as she sets out to discover where she is, why she is there and how or if she can return home. Accompanied by Tygar, a white stallion who appoints himself her guardian and armed with a giant potato peeler, Dracomagan travels through a lush and dreamlike Otherworld.
Who will help her find her true identity? Will it be Sama, the gorgeous harpist who gives her a name? Will it be aggravating Agravaine, a knight who prefers fashion to fighting? Can Gatus, the goat herder help her? Or will the mysterious retired Pirate King show her the path to her real memories?
I don’t write about imaginary worlds; I write about imaginative ones. These are worlds that could be real in a parallel universe or another time dimension. I don’t promote escapism; instead I take my readers into a refreshing place so that they return to their normal lives feeling strengthened and renewed.

Wednesday Words – About “Summer Storm”

14 November, 2012
I would like to welcome back Elizabeth Baxter to her second Bite Sized Blog Tour to tell us about her recently published novella, Summer Storm.
Summer Storm is a fantasy novella about a young woman who wants to defy the male orientated culture she comes from by becoming a scientist.
I’d already written Everwinter, book 1 in The Wrath of the Northmen series, and wanted to tell the story of events leading up to what happens in Everwinter.
What happens to Falen in “Summer Storm” is a crucial part of the overarching storyline of The Wrath of the Northmen series so I wanted to tell her story – plus she’s great fun to write about!
Everwinter, (my novel due out this autumn) is an epic story of cruel gods, harsh tyrants and a rag-tag bunch of characters who have to deal with their inner demons in order to save their world.
Summer Storm is available from Amazon. Anyone who enjoys character driven epic fantasy and those who like to lose themselves in a good adventure story will enjoy it.
I’m currently reading Dust of Dreams by Steven Erikson. It’s the ninth book in the series and I’m almost done – I’ll soon be on to the final book. Can’t wait!
If you would like to find out more about Elizabeth Baxter and her stories before next week, please visit Small Blonde Hippy Come back next Wednesday for an excerpt from Summer Storm.
