Special Offers

My Mythology is still FREE on iBooks, Kobo and Nook. On Kindle, it’s just 99c! (Amazon don’t like me making my books free for some reason…) This is a book full of fantastical poetry about creatures out of legend and in other worlds and it’s only discounted until 31st July…

Silver Fire is available as a FREE download in the July Blowout which ends 31st July – so grab it quick! This is the first book in my dark fantasy series The Kaerling.

Dragonscale Leggings is also available as a FREE download in Imagine That Young Adult giveaway which also ends 31st July. I’ve never made this book available for FREE download before, so get it while you can!

And, a sample of Elkadanu is currently available to download, FREE of charge in the Sample Extravanga giveaway, and guess what? That one ends on 31st July too – funny that! This is volume nine in The Kaerling series, and is an excellent introduction to the characters and storyline.

Changes …

I’m no longer able to use Facebook! It takes so long to load that I very often can’t read other peoples’ posts, or, if I can read them, I can’t respond to them. I also can’t always schedule posts on my Author Page. Very frustrating! So please don’t try to contact me via Facebook because I’m only checking in there every 1-2 months. If you need to contact me, either send an email to freya.pickard@gmail.com or leave a comment on this site.

Other News

Jonathon B. Hoyt with whom I have collaborated over the years in both my Newsletter and for the covers of my books, now has his very own blog! Please take a look and follow and like if you enjoy his work at Jonathon B. Hoyt.

Pure Haiku is once again CLOSED to submissions. Selected haiku from the theme of Volcano, will be appearing between 1st September and 30th November. Sign up to Pure Haiku to receive notifications! And thank you to everyone who sent in their haiku for my consideration!

August is a Rest Month for me so I won’t be online now until the beginning of September. I intend to work on my vampire poetry, read a lot of paperbacks, create pastel and watercolour pictures, listen to music and rest… See you in the autumn!

Much love Freya xxx

The Sample Extravaganza is running until 31st July and I’ve included a large sample of my most recent book – Elkadanu! If you’ve not yet started The Kaerling series, downloading this sample of Elkadanu is a brilliant way of getting into the world of Nirunen!

“I felt so involved in the story of the herb woman, hopefully Lored will succeed in setting her free. The pacing of the novel as well as the interactions and dialogues between the characters are perfect; through these Freya manages to carry you away and have you plunge into such an amazing fantasy world!” C Messelodi
