Cloven Hoofs & Ancient Heroes

22 February, 2019

above clouded skies

his cloven hoofs step boldly

in gaps between stars

this silvered constellation

haunting my dreams, my nightmares

Haldron, Brennain’s son, Hero of Battles

Fleeing the rout on the far red fields,

Slaying a chieftain, a Spear Thane sacred,

Pursued by the perilous dwarrows …

Both these poems are excerpts from my recently published book of poetry – My Mythology. If you prefer to read poetry on the page, this volume is included within my anthology, This Is Me.

You can watch the video about My Mythology at YouTube! And if you like video-poetry, check out Alien Watching and Compost Ghoul – both of which appear in this book!

Available at Amazon US, Amazon UK, Apple, Nook, Kobo and other online stores.

My Mythology

14 February, 2019

My Mythology is now available to buy online!

If you prefer a paperback, you can find this volume as part of my paperback collection, This Is Me.

I’m releasing an e-version of My Mythology today because I know that a lot of people prefer e-books to paperbacks. I like both!

In volume two of Dragonscale Delvings, I deal with both serious and humorous matters. Death makes its way into my poems, understandably. But my flippant sense of humour is never far away – take Elf-conscious and Zombie Mushrooms, for instance.

I enjoy writing both short forms and epic poetry and you can find both kinds in this volume. Get a glimpse into my world of Nirunen, discover its historical characters that provide the background to my fantasy series, The Kaerling.

Some people think that poetry is just for poetic people. I don’t agree. Poetry is for everyone, whether or not you write it. My poetry is accessible, you don’t need a degree in English to read my work.

Take a look at the video about this volume at YouTube!

If you like video-poetry, check out Alien Watching and Compost Ghoul – both of which appear in this book!

And when you’ve had a chance to read My Mythology, I would love to know what you think about it!

Available at Amazon US, Amazon UK, Apple, Nook, Kobo and other online stores.

This is Volume Two of Dragonscale Delvings. The first volume Insides, is available both as an e-book and as part of my paperback poetry found in This Is Me.

My Mythology is the middle volume of the paperback and is my way of acknowledging all the sources of inspiration I have found in my life so far.

Happy New Year!

5 January, 2019

Happy New Year to you all!

I hope you had an enjoyable, restful and peaceful Christmas!

Just wanted to drop you all a line to let you know what I’m up to. I am planning on releasing two books in the first few months of this year!

My Mythology is a book of poetry, which can be found in my paperback, This Is Me. Next month I hope to release My Mythology as an e-book. In it I explore all my sources of inspiration…

I’m also hoping to release An Ancient Song. This is the third volume in The Kaerling series. If you’ve not yet read Silver Fire – it’s a free download! The second volume, Ambassador is available to purchase online in various stores. An Ancient Song tells of Otta’s continuing search for the unicorn and has a surprising twist at the end!

Over the winter I’ve been busy replenishing my creativity and have been painting once more! Here is of my creations that I wanted to share with you today along with a verse from a poem in My Mythology …

empty like

his hollow heart, the

blank mirror

gives nothing

back; taking only, never

satisfied

Everwinter by Elizabeth Baxter

10 April, 2013
I would like to welcome Elizabeth Baxter to her Bite Sized Blog Tour for her novel Everwinter …
What is Everwinter about?
Old powers have brought a terrible winter to the land of Thanderley and only a young engineer can stop it.
Tell us a little about the main character.
Bramwell Tully is an engineer who believes in science and rationality but soon discovers there is much more to the world than he thought.
Why would people want to buy Everwinter?
Everwinter has something for everyone – action, adventure and characters that come alive on the page.
Why did you decide to go down the self publishing route?
Self-publishing gives me the freedom and artistic license I couldn’t get from traditional publishing – and it’s great fun!
What has been the most rewarding thing about self publishing?
Seeing my books for sale and getting great reviews from readers.
What has been the most difficult thing?
Learning the ropes – there is a lot of industry knowledge and technical stuff you have to learn.
What book are you currently reading?
Inheritance by Christopher Paolini, the final book in the Inheritance saga that started with Eragon.
If you would like to find out more about Elizabeth and her writing, before next week, please visit Small Blonde Hippy Come back next Wednesday for an excerpt from “Everwinter”.
