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

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”.
