An Ancient Song

3 April, 2019

An Ancient Song explores the dark recesses of Otta’s soul and gives Erl a new meaning to his life.

An Ancient Song continues the twins’ quest for the “Unicorn’s Trail” with a shocking revelation at the end.

An Ancient Song takes the reader into a different world where the races are divided and immigrants seek to find their way in a strange and hostile land.

This is Volume Three of The Kaerling. It was a difficult book to write as I explored Otta’s inexplicable dislike of the despised Suryan. Like Nagaru, I wanted her to admit she had killed a man and to overcome her irrational prejudice towards the travellers who protect her.

Not everything is resolved in this volume, but, as Nagaru tells her towards the end, it’s a beginning!

Want to find out exactly how Otta and Erl escape from Aura Vere? Want to know how they discover the truth about the “Unicorn’s Trail”? Want to meet more of the Kaerlings who are both attractive and repelling at the same time?

If the answer is yes to one or more of the above questions, you need to buy An Ancient Song, now! Available at Amazon UK, Amazon US, iBooks, Nook, Kobo and many other online stores.

Wednesday Words – Calm

8 May, 2013
Something I noticed today; I don’t get all uptight and fly off the handle at something minor any more. Why? Am I just so tired and worn out I haven’t got the energy? Or is it because I’m portioning out my time better? I don’t set myself impossible targets any more. On the surface I feel annoyed sometimes, but inside I’m calm.

Wednesday Words – Change

27 February, 2013
I originally posted this blog at WOWH
I am learning to accept change and live with it.
At the moment, I’m going through a lot of changes in several aspects of my life. I feel unstable, disturbed, stressed.
This is affecting my creativity. I don’t have time to do what I call “proper” writing; novel writing. I have hardly any time in which to write at all.
Instead, I write 3 short pieces daily; a stone, a haiku and an elfje. Often I write all three on the same subject, trying to look at the one thing I’ve noticed from 3 different angles. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. It’s not getting the novels written, but it is keeping the flow of creativity going – a small trickle anyway.
I comfort myself with this thought…
Last autumn I dug over the front flower bed, took out lots of bulbs, dug deep and let oxygen in. This spring, despite removing many bulbs, many crocuses have flowered, far more than last year.
Will this deep disturbance and re-arrangement I am experiencing, produce multiple beautiful blossoms in 5-6 months time?
