If you enjoy reading my posts, I would love it if you could buy just one of my books today. These are the cheap ones. There are more expensive ones (up to $5.99 / £5.99) which you can read about at My Books.

Just because they’re cheap does not mean they’re rubbish. Each of my books is unique and different. I don’t write to a formula. I write from my imagination. If you like quirky and off-the-wall, you’ll enjoy my writing.

Go on! Give these books a go. They’re not going to break the bank! The Kaerling e-volumes are currently 99c – until 1st May 2020! (They’ll be going up to $1.99 in May!)

The Day of Weird

24 January, 2020

Today marks the launch of my paperback, The Day of Weird!

The Day of Weird Paperback Cover

The Day of Weird Paperback Cover

 

Erl looked up and saw something large and black descending through the rags of mist. Large webbed wings flapped with ponderous regularity and a fanged maw gaped open, emitting lightning and fire. Fear rooted Erl to the ground. This was something he had never seen before. Perhaps someone had once told him stories about such monsters, but never had he known such horror.

The ground shook beneath their feet as lightning flickered almost constantly. Erl’s fear increased as the monster descended and opened its fang-filled mouth. Then Otta pushed him aside and stepped out into the storm. Not knowing why, he tried to stop her. Erl reached out but hesitated to touch her. There was an energy about her that shimmered and danced all over her body. Fear washed through him, churning in his belly. Why was he frightened of his sister?

“Leave us!” Otta shouted into the howling night. Her voice sounded strange, as if someone else was speaking through her.

The smell of sulphur increased, then the beast flung up its head. Fearing the worst, Erl tried to grab Otta’s shoulder but felt as though he had burnt himself where his hand touched her clothes …

The Day of Weird contains the first three volumes of The Kaerling; Silver Fire, Ambassador and An Ancient Song. If you want to read the first book of The Kaerling as I intended it to be read, buy the paperback now!

Pursued by villagers for angering the gods, Otta seeks to evade capture whilst following the Unicorn’s Trail. She must deal with the dark side of her character and the memory loss of her twin as the influence of the kaerlings becomes more pronounced. Where will the Unicorn’s Trail lead her?

This paperback is available at Amazon UK and Amazon US and other Amazon stores.

Videos about The Kaerling can be found at Volume One, Volume Two, Volume Three and TDOW.

Happy reading!

How to be a Writer’s Best Friend #7

21 November, 2019

DO

Give your author friend space to write and work on her next book.

DON’T

Expect all her books to be the same. If you didn’t like something in one book, try a different series/character.

Olin Heon Volume Four of The Kaerling is now available online!

… The figure stooped down and took a bunch of keys from the warder’s belt. Lored backed away from the barred door, feeling nervous without the protection of his staff. Nilo inserted a key into the lock and turned it. The door swung open and Lored cautiously stepped out of his cell.

“I’m not going to eat you,” Nilo said gruffly. “I’m getting you out of here.”

“Look, I don’t mean to be ungrateful.” Lored hesitated. “But who are you and why are you rescuing me?”

“Long story,” replied the other. “I’ll explain when we’re safe. We’ve got to get to the upper levels in time to avoid the klanchiefs’ procession.”

“Procession?”

“Come on!” A large hand with an iron-like grip fastened onto the taku-kevir’s left arm.

“But we need to look for my staff,” Lored protested. “I can’t leave without it!”

“Got it already.” Nilo growled. “Along with your book and clothes and spare boots. But I couldn’t find your cloak of invisibility.”

They were marching quickly along the passageway, Lored almost running to keep up with Nilo.

“I don’t have a cloak of invisibility,” he panted.

“That explains why I couldn’t find it …”
