How to be a Writer’s Best Friend #3

18 September, 2019

DO

Offer her a guest blog post so your followers can discover her and find out why they need to buy her book. Ask her unusual questions, don’t be run-of-the-mill!

DON’T

Just offer congratulations. Just don’t. It means nothing. Buy her book!

You can find the links to all my books here at Barnes & Noble.

Freya Returns with Reduced Insides!

2 October, 2017

Hello! It’s me! I’m back! Did you miss me?
I certainly missed all of you! Life has been unbelievably busy and my new business has taken over my life. I am hoping that we’ve made enough money so I can relax a little over the winter months before the mad rush starts again next year!
I’ve got some plans for this autumn that I’m hoping to implement in-between the daily, demanding tasks that now run my life. I’m bringing back my EPod Interviews in October and December. And I can’t promise anything, but, if both time and money permit, I am planning on releasing “Vintrig’s Throne”, (the sequel to Vintrig’s Kingdom).

Right now, my first poetry collection, Insides, is on special offer! It’s just 99p online this month – if you’ve not read it yet, buy it now before the price goes back up to £1.60. And, if you have already read it, please, please, please could you possibly leave a review on Amazon (or wherever you purchased it) about it? Thank you so much!
I am hoping to start catching up with blogs, emails, social media stuff. But please bear with me as it may take a while. I don’t really have any free time at the mo! It’s lovely to be back online once more though and I can’t wait to “see” you all again. Much love Freya xxx

wordless song brings truth

17 July, 2017

The life of a leaf and a fairy tale gone wrong … These were the themes of the poem and short story that were given as my July Rewards for my Patreon supporters.
If you missed out on these rewards, don’t worry! If you pledge your support for me at Patreon before 1st August, you will be able to access the August Rewards.
Once published, my books need to be promoted. This can only be done effectively if I pay established companies to promote my novels etc. Therefore, I am seeking to promote my books on a weekly basis and to do that properly, I need at least $30 per month. Without promotion I cannot sell my work. If I can sell a certain amount of books per month, I can then fulfil my dream of being a full time writer!
In August, my supporters will receive a previously unpublished lantune/haiku sequence about the songs of deep space and/or a previously unpublished story about a man who crosses the border into fairy land and starts to notice the world around him …
See you at Patreon soon!

Silent Speech of Metallic Ocean

29 May, 2017

Dreaming and parallel universes … These were the themes of the poem and short story that were given as my May Rewards for my Patreon supporters.
If you missed out on these rewards, don’t worry! If you pledge your support for me at Patreon before 1st June, you will be able to access the June Rewards.
In June, my supporters will receive a previously unpublished tanka/lantune sequence about constellations and new worlds and/or a previously unpublished story about twins who are in danger of their lives and have to communicate telepathically in order to survive …
I am using my short stories and poems as rewards because I want people who support me to get a glimpse into the worlds I have created. For just $1 or more month, you will be able to read an unpublished poem. For just $5 or more a month, you will be able to read an unpublished short story of at least 2,000 words. Other rewards include sneak previews of book covers and launch videos as well free sample chapters of forthcoming books.
See you at Patreon soon!

Vintrig’s Kingdom – £1.99!

26 January, 2017

For a VERY limited time only!

VINTRIG’S KINGDOM is reduced to just £1.99 at Amazon UK!

This very special offer lasts only until midday on Saturday, 28th January 2017!

Vintrig’s Kingdom is a romance set in a winter-bound kingdom in the far north in a world encompassed by enchantment. Vintrig’s Kingdom is ruled by the Counsellor, who, in the past saved Vintrig’s people from extinction. Within Vintrig’s Castle, the virgin princess, Isu Magan, waits for her Coronation, longing for power and yearning for something more than snow and ice and law books.

When Sama Conn and his musicians arrive at Vintrig’s Castle, a change in the weather affects everyone. Isu fears her feelings towards the musician, knowing she must remain celibate to fulfil her destiny…

There are 2 videos to watch this time! There’s a short black and white film of me talking about the novel and why I wrote it at About Vintrig’s Kingdom and there’s also a technicolor film of me reading an extract from the book at Vintrig’s Kingdom Extract.
