The proof copy is ordered and already on its way from Createspace.

I’m adding the final touches to the kindle edition (hyperlinks etc).

ARC’s have been going out to reviewers.

I’ve agreed a book stall at my daughter’s summer fair, and am thinking of contacting the local newspaper to see if they’d be interested it featuring the event.

Oh and I’m about to be 40! I have a couple of cool birthday treats lined up; visiting the caves at Cheddar Gorge, the Roman baths at Bath, and a falconry day. All great fun, but also research and photography opportunities.

Back to the book;

Oh, I love it!

I haven’t decided whether to do a blog tour or not yet, as I’m struggling to think of material. Some book reviewers and bloggers have already agreed to do posts around the publication date so I need to get organised and book in some dates.

This is where I put out the call for help. Would you be willing to post something about The Lost Sentinel before or after the 16th June?

I’m happy to do interviews etc.

I’m also still looking for more reviewers. You don’t have to commit to the publication date, I’m happy to be reviewed however it fits in with your schedule.

And of course, don’t forget you can pre-order your kindle copy now for only 99p / 99c The Lost Sentinel

 

Lastly, I was very happy to see this email in my inbox this morning. You’ve got to love Amazon and Author Central – follow the author facility. It’s a must for all authors.

Beta-reader review

The Lost Sentinel is an enthralling fantasy set in a world divided into those who have magic and those who do not. It is a world on the point of self-destruction. The trials and tribulations of the main character, Tei, as she follows her destiny will have you on the edge of your seat. This is a book full of magic, suspense and bloodthirsty action. It will leave you in parts elated, devastated and finally desperate for the sequel which you will be pleased to hear, the author has already partly written. Rogerson’s characters are so well-realised and the plot so intricate that you will find it hard to put this book down.

Beta-reader L.Spiers – December 2016


Blurb

The magical island of Kalaya is dying, along with its Sentinel. With the Kalayan people turning their back on magic, can Tei help the exiles find their new Sentinel before it’s too late?

Kalaya is controlled by the Assembly – set up to govern but now under the control of Rathnor, who is intent on persecuting those who have magic, many of whom have taken refuge in the Turrak Mountains.

Tei has been raised to hide her magic, until her father, Migil, is visited by an old friend who warns them that they must seek refuge in the mountains.

On the journey, an enemy attack leaves her father mortally wounded. He sees her into the care of two exiles, Rike and Garrick, and on his deathbed makes a shocking confession that changes Tei’s life.

Tei must put her trust in these strangers, especially when mysterious Masked Riders seem determined to stop her reaching Turrak.

Struggling with self-doubt, Tei joins the exiles in their search for their lost Sentinel. But the Masked Riders want the Sentinel too, and time, as well as hope, is running out.

Can Tei help the exiles save the island magic and reunite the Kalayan people before their ignorance destroys them all?
