But the villainous Rathnor has other ideas and Tei faces further challenges if she and her friends are to keep the peace and hold on to the magic.

Expertly narrated once again by George Ellington, this is the second book in the Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy and follows on from the events last time. As with the first book, the author’s descriptive skills are on top form, creating vivid landscapes which work well as a backdrop for her characters. What I liked this time around was the way we get more of an insight into each of the characters (such as the curious dynamics…

I’ve been looking into advertising my audiobook (soon to be audiobooks!) but I’m struggling to find ways to do it.
Then I realised I haven’t posted about the book for a while, so I’d like to share it with you now and offer my readers the chance to listen for free. All I ask as that you consider leaving a review on Audible, Amazon, Goodreads, wherever you feel comfortable posting.
To tempt you here’s a sample performed by the very talented Guy Barnes.
Two wizards, 350 years apart. Can they save the realm of Paltria from Zarua’s dark past?
An ancient darkness haunts the realm of Paltria. Apprentice wizard Paddren is plagued by visions of a city on the brink of annihilation. When his master dies in mysterious circumstances, the Royal Order of Wizards refuses to investigate. Helped by his childhood friend, the skilled tracker Varnia, and her lover Leyoch, Paddren vows to find the killer. The investigation leads Paddren down a sinister path of assassins, secret sects and creatures conjured by blood magic. But he is guided by a connection with a wizard from centuries ago – a wizard whose history holds the key to the horror at the heart of the abandoned city of Zarua. Can Paddren decipher his visions and save the Paltrian people before the dark menace of Zarua’s past is unleashed?

As part of my ongoing battle to write more, I’ve forced persuaded my lovely friend, and extremely talented and prolific writer, Suzanne Rogerson to take part in a writing tag-team. One of us writes a section of this spy/crime/thriller/Killing Eve rip off, then emails it to the other to continue the story. I’m really enjoying it and it’s making me write because I don’t want to let Suzanne down. Suzanne is usually a fantasy writer and certainly doesn’t need the practice but is humouring me because she’s such a nice person!
It’s not been edited, the point of view jumps around (which is a literary no-no, apparently, although I personally think most people are intelligent enough to still follow what’s happening. But then I’m not a best-selling author so what do I know?) and I’ve no idea what the big twist will be but here are first few instalments:
Well the start to 2020 has not been all I was hoping for. Some unexpected events have set me back in my plans and I’m struggling to get myself motivated to stick to my writing goals. Life can be a real bastard sometimes.
I won’t bore you with all the details but I did just want to mention that my gorgeous Poppy died January 16th, possibly hit by a car we will never know. She was only 4 years old and she was my baby.
I got her right at the start of my self publishing adventure so I have a lot of memories tying the two together in my head. I remember the tiny bundle of fluff pouncing on my laptop when I was trying to proof read the book and update changes for KDP uploads. She’d grab my pens, sleep on my desk, climb on my back and insisted on having long stroking sessions whenever it suited her. She always liked to get involved with whatever I was doing and she was a great companion to a writer stuck home alone all day.
I loved sharing pictures of her on my blog and today I thought it would be nice to have a memorial post celebrating her life and the joy she brought me.
