We Have a Release Date…

Evening lovely readers 🙂

Well I’m very excited to say that my great friend J.S Collyer now has a release date for her super début novel Zero 🙂

 

Do you like science fiction? Do you like adventure? Do you like space pirates with lasers? I hear you all cry “What a daft question, of course we do.” Well then you won’t be disappointed with this excellent package of literary magnificence. The official book launch will be on the 16th August 2014 at the epic Fantasticon where J S Collyer will be signing copies, talking sci fi and just generally being quite frankly awesome. Luckily the eBook and paperback will be available on Amazon on the same day. I personally cannot wait. I do in fact have an advance copy for the purposes of reviewing it but there’s nothing like having a book written by one of your best friends officially on your Kindle. In having an advance copy I can in fact tell you that the novel is proving to be as fabulous as I expected and was it not that real life keeps interjecting I would be constantly reading this 🙂 Please keep your peepers peeled for my official review as I can promise it won’t disappoint: an awesome review for an awesome book I say 😉

In other news I can officially say that I have started my second novel while my first is being edited. As a bit of a difference I am not writing the sequel to my first novel, though I have that firmly ensconced in my mind, but another novel that I posted on here a while back. Then it was called Frozen due to it being about a blind winter fae archer but given the recent Disney outing I felt a title change was in order so soon there will be a post on my new Tears of Ice.

Thank you 🙂

*INCOMING* Excitement, Intrigue and Space Pirates

Evening lovely readers 🙂

I’m so excited for this post. Many who have read my posts before will know I mention one of my best friends J. S. Collyer quite a bit 🙂 She is an exceptional writer and loves to create fantastical Worlds of science and adventure. You can get little titbits of her creativity in the brilliant releases by the epic Dagda Publishers in the form of Tuned to a Dead Channel and All Hail the New Flesh. Her writing is known to be intricate with lovely velvety language use which draws you into her Worlds and refuses to let go. Her story in All Hail entitled Isaac Heights was particularly thrilling in my own opinion. You really don’t expect the ending and you’re left reeling desperate for more.

Anyway, I went off on a tangent there… The aim of this post today was to reveal that there has been a cover release for her forthcoming début novel. Zero is set to be released in August and promises to be an action packed space pirate romp full of explosions and LAZORSSSSSSSSS!!!!!! You know anything that J. S writes will be bordering on the epic with aspects of intrigue set to attract anyone. I for one am excited to read it and believe me when I say there will be a book review before you know it 🙂

Anyway, thank you for listening to me go on. Here’s the cover. Enjoy 🙂

To Arms My Dear, To Arms, To Arms…

1260436-bigthumbnail

How does one decide whether to go for an epic battle in their story or just include some subtle hints of War? Do you begin gradually or fall into the fighting with a loud clash of thunder? Do you concentrate on each individual clang of a sword or blast of a bullet, or do you focus on the effect of it on your character? I always wondered what was the best way to go around the conflict in your story and wondered where the best place to experience war in literature was. I could draw from experience of what I have both read and watched but I wouldn’t know if it was quite right for my novel.

During my novel, I Cast Magic Into the Darkness, there are moments of battle throughout to highlight the eternal struggle part of my main character will always have to endure. However, I want to make the final battle epic. This may prove hard as I want to focus both on the battle and my characters feelings towards it. The question is, which should have my main focus? The battle is raging, a variation of the traditional good versus evil as you’re not entirely sure which side should prevail, and my character Aly has to get through it in her search for Lucas. At the moment I’ve concentrated more on how she feels detached from it all and can casually walk past Death and Destruction without a sideways glance. I’m unsure whether to focus more on the pain and suffering within the battle itself as well to show that the entire World is effected by this.

Another worry is that I will make the fighting itself sound corny and stereotypical. I don’t want my novel to bore people with language such as “she lifted her sword” or “her sword hit his sword.” I suppose this is part of the challenge however, making all the language used for all points throughout the novel sound interesting and be able to hook the readers. As utterly childish as this is going to sound a good source for battle transitioned into the modern Worlds audience is Xena: Warrior Princess. I never really realised before how good it is with developing their characters and by integrating believable battle scenes. In the literary World a good source of battle placed into a fantasy novel is Green Rider by Kirsten Britain. She’s able to show the uncertainty of her main character while having to introduce battle into her characters World, she having never done it before. It’s hard to establish that kind of balance but again it is all part of the challenge a writer faces.

What do you think? Thank you 🙂

A Storyline to Toy With

I’ve been thinking of what story to write next. I’m still on with my novel but I can’t help thinking what the next work will be. I love it when my imagination takes me places and can’t help but write it down, knowing a story could come from it.

I had a thought to do the next one centred around the princess of the Court of the Winter Fae. I’m thinking that it will have an enforced betrothal, some sort of epic war and she will go through a transformation of some sort. This is all just to begin with, I will keep working on it 🙂

What do you think?

The visual proof after using detoxifying foot pads is credible. The improvement is obvious when used over several consecutive days. A highly accredited Environmental Laboratory, SRC Analytical Lab, analyzed multiple samples of foot pads. It discovered absorption into the pads of Arsenic, Mercury, Nickel and many others. detox-foot-patches-benefitsA syncrometer was used to analyze multiple pads for a number of folks. The syncrometer identified the following substances in the used pads: aluminum, arsenic, asbestos, benzene, cadmium, copper, DAB dye, fast green dye, isopropyl alcohol, lead, methyl alcohol, mercury, nickel, sudan black dye, thallium, and a plastic byproduct. Scientists analyzed the hair of people before and after the use of the detoxifying foot pads. The difference in levels of toxins was obvious. Japan scientists have conducted detailed research of foot pads using Thermography. They discovered that the pads are able to quicken circulation and thus the detoxification of the body.
