The first of my updates is on the appearance of my blog. I’ve finally been able to update the header with all three of my books. It’s a great feeling to see them altogether. The Cover Collection have done a wonderful job on all three covers and the banner.
It’s officially 1 month before The Sentinel’s Reign is published – 29th June 2018, which is so exciting. I’ve just finished reading it through and have a couple of small changes to make before the ARC is ready to send out to reviewers. Please get in touch if you are interested.
Yesterday The Lost Sentinel received a brilliant review from Sofia – A Book. A Thought blog. She said; The world building is incredible, it’s my favorite aspect of the book and I think it’s the best achieved. The descriptions are exceptional, without doubts.

Finally as this is an update post, the latest on the Czech translation of Visions of Zarua is that it will be published in the Fall 2019! This is such an exciting time for me, and perhaps it will lead on to bigger and better things. I certainly hope so!
Those who follow my blog may remember a while ago I mentioned I’d been contacted by a publisher about a Czech translation of my debut novel, Visions of Zarua.
Well last week I received the signed contract so I can finally announce the deal is official!
I do not have a publication date as yet but I’m so happy to share this news and to say I will soon be a traditionally published author! That is a dream come true, even if it has come about in a totally unexpected way.
I am so proud of this book and can’t wait to see what it looks like in Czech!
For those of you unfamiliar with the book here’s the blurb…
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 Kalesh 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 in time to save the Paltrian people from the dark menace of Zarua’s past? Goodreads book link
I am currently approaching agents with this book and would really love to get some more reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, or to be featured on your book blogs. If you are willing to post an honest review in exchange for a free copy, please get in touch using my contact form. Alternatively, Visions of Zarua is enrolled in Kindle Unlimited where members can read it for free.
I hope to have more news to share soon, but for now thanks for reading.
