Blurb

The magical island of Kalaya is dying. Only Tei, an exiled mystic, can save it.

The Assembly controls Kalaya. Originally set up to govern, they now persecute those with magic and exile them to the Turrak Mountains. Tei, a tailor’s daughter, has always hidden her magic but when her father’s old friend visits and warns them to flee to the mountains she must leave her old life behind. On the journey, an attack leaves her father mortally wounded. He entrusts her into the care of the exiles and on his deathbed makes a shocking confession.

Tei joins the exiles search for their new Sentinel – the only person capable of restoring the fading magic. But mysterious Masked Riders are hunting the Sentinel too, and time, as well as hope, is running out. Against mounting odds it will take friendship, heartache and sacrifice to succeed, but is Tei willing to risk everything she loves to save the island magic?

If you like multi dimensional characters in vibrant worlds, then you’ll love The Lost Sentinel – Book 1 in the Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy.

Writing achievements in 2021 #amwriting #amediting #indieauthor

2021 was a huge disappointment in many ways, not least because it just seemed to disappear without anything happening.

There were some good things that happened and my big event was being a finalist in the Book Bloggers Novel of the Year Award 2021.

The Lost Sentinel came 12th, just short of receiving a prize, but it is still a great achievement and I’m proud to be able to display this badge on my blog.

As for the rest of my writing, I did manage to meet some of the deadlines I set myself last year but I didn’t manage to publish anything. However, let’s not focus on the bad but the good. Here goes…

Romance

I drafted the first three books in my Mermaid Hotel Romance Series – Evie’s Song, A.J’s Legacy and Love in Degrees (working titles). There are still plenty of notes to work through at the editing stage, but I’m hoping to finish them in 2022. Plus plans for the next 3 books in the series are whirring away at the back of my mind.

Fantasy

I’ve reworked my Starlight Prophecy Series and will have two full books rather than a novella prequel and a dual timeline story. This format should be a lot less complicated for the reader and for me to write!

Short Stories

I have finished three short stories based in the worlds of my fantasy novels and have printed them in booklet form to sell at events. Early in 2022 I plan to publish them on Kindle and giveaway to my newsletter subscribers.

I have also produced a booklet of short stories but I want to write some more before I publish these on kindle.

Courses

I completed two online courses, the Curtis Brown Creative Romance course led by Jenny Colegan and Romantic Novel Association’s Fantasy Worldbuilding course led by Ruth Long. Both of these courses were great fun and I feel as though I’ve learnt a lot from them.

***

I think that is about it for now. All there is left to say is Happy New Year. Let’s hope 2022 is a wonderful year for everyone.

I’ll follow up with my plans for the new year very soon.

New cover animation for The Lost Sentinel #fantasy

Just a quick post today.

I’ve been thinking of getting my book cover animated for some time but didn’t take the plunge until I saw Motion Kitty’s work. I think the effect she’s created is quite magical and fits the book perfectly.

I love it. I hope you do to.

Let me know what you think.

And if you’re thinking of trying out some animation, why not check out Motion Kitty for yourself. Suzanne was lovely to work with and super quick at coming up with options before tweaking the final design.

Writers – Have you had your covers animated and if so how do you make the most of them?

Readers – What do you think of animated covers?

Silent Sea Chronicles Trilogy out now in #Audio #Audible

The complete Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy is out now in audio. That’s over 39 hours!

“…Tolkien meets Ursula le Guin. A hidden gem that I highly recommend for all fans of classic “sword and sorcery” Audible Reviewer

I love seeing the covers all lined up looking so beautiful.

I’ve been waiting for the whisper sync of each book in the trilogy to become active before posting this promo post. Whisper sync means if you own the eBook, you can buy the audiobook for a huge discount and can switch between the two versions without losing your place. I appreciate that audiobooks can be expense, so this is a great option I have used a few times myself.

“…The unique spin on fantasy and magic is wonderful. There are several events and storylines beautifully woven together. Absolutely brilliant, I cannot wait for more.” Audible reviewer.

Another option open to you is to become an Audible subscriber. I believe you can get one or two free books within your free month trial period. You can cancel at any time, but if you find you love audiobooks and start your subscription using the link below, both myself and the narrator will be given a bonus from Audible at not extra cost to you. Check the relevant link for more information.

“I love how Susan Rogerson always has you on the edge of your seat and threw out three books of more than 30 hours long it never ceases to be dull boring and the ending is so worth the wait. I loved this book and I love George Ellington’s narration…” Audible reviewer

See my audiobooks on my Audible US author page and Audible UK author page

Here’s a trailer of book 1 to give you a taste of George’s narrator style

“…oh my goodness, I must gush about this voice! George Ellington’s smooth Scottish accent gave the story a medieval highland feel that I think suited it very well…” Audible reviewer

Thanks for reading and please do get in touch. Do you enjoy audiobooks? Have you read or listened to Silent Sea Chronicles? If you’ve enjoyed them would you consider leaving reviews? I love reading reviews and picking out snippets to share with my readers. Maybe next time I’ll be using one of your quotes!
