While I remember:
Free copy of The Scarred Artisan if anyone wants one?
You sign up to the mailing list to get it but can always unsubscribe later- there’s a link at the bottom of any email that gets sent out.
Please note, this is one of the shorts from Song of the Ice Lord so if you’ve read that, you’ve probably already got this!
in which case try The Black-Eyed Susan free here:
Sorry for the long silence – I’ve been busy writing, editing and writing some more!
Book 2 will now bw called “The Other Nereia” and “The Mother” will be book 3 (just as you all requested!). Editing is ongoing – hopefully book 2 will be online before Christmas and the paperback version of 1&2 is due out in Spring 2012.
In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for my short story “A Sprig of Holly” in the charity anthology “Christmas Lites” – this is an anthology of short stories written, edited and generally put together by authors, editors, and other members of the Creative Reviews group on Goodreads and is due out in time for Christmas, with all proceeds to go to NCADV, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
More details to follow…watch this space!
later in the year, an interview with Cambria Hebert, author of the imminent release Masquerade.
This should be a good one, so I’m really looking forward to finding out what she has to tell us about her writing, her radio show and where on earth she first came across toilet snakes….
Loving this review and the comments – but not at all intimidated by it, ohhhh nooo….
Thanks so much for the review, AF – now all I have to do is hope and pray the next one won’t let you all down….
3* review from Paranormal Romance Guild – have a look and see what you think. Is it written in Old English or just slightly obscure English? Anyone got any thoughts on that? Sounds like the reviewer did get quite caught up in it – she was rooting for Nereia and says she cried when Copeland turned nasty – but thought it was over-complex perhaps, which is probably a fair comment.
Can’t decide whether that’s a good review, a bad review or not really either – but then a 3* is not really good or bad, but a more neutral vote I suppose.
What do you lot think?
Just a quickie to say that I’ve had two nice things – a shoutout from author Dianna Hardy in the course of a discussion about self-pub (do go along and add your twopenn’orth):
and another review for “On Dark Shores: The Lady”. I’m muchly pleased to say that Rachael at Historically Yours has given it five stars! Hurrah!
Check out her review here, and do leave a comment if you agree / disagree – I’ll be nipping by to join in the discussion!
And though it feels awfully cheeky to say so, it is available from Amazon UK and US as well as Smashwords and Goodreads – links here for your one-click convenience!!
And here it is:
Kimberly has a blog at http://historicalfictionobsession.blogspot.com/ on which are many other interesting reviews, so do go and have a look, and if you get there before 21st, enter for her giveaway of The Ghosts of Melrose by Buzz Malone.
Pretty pleased with the review though! Have you read ODS? Did you think the same, or did you pick up on other parts of the story? Leave a comment, and let’s have the discussion…
Hope you’re all having a good week, anyhow – no guest post this week but should be one next week, though not sure who will finish their first, so still tbc!
Catch you later, people;
This is just a spaceholder before this week’s guest blog, but more pertinently because I don’t recall having given you this link before and it is unnecessarily funny.
Read the Mr Men books?
So has Hamilton Richards – and he has some strong opinions on the subject!
Do drop by later on to find out who will be guesting this week…
Briefly, I’ve just had another review for “on Dark Shores 1: The Lady”, from TC at Booked Up Blog – do go and have a look, and see if you think it’s fair comment. I hope you do, as it’s very pleasing! Possibly the thing I am proudest of is that she has never particularly considered herself a fan of the fantasy genre but says that reading “On Dark Shores” has made her reconsider what genres she will say she enjoys in the future – how’s that for a compliment?!
Anyway, I’m really pleased that she liked it (I was quite nervous that it might be asking for trouble to ask someone to read outside their usual genre, and would have felt quite bad about wasting her time if she’d hated it) so if any of you lot would be prepared to go have a look and, if you don’t mind, to share that or like it or whatever, I’d really appreciate it. TC’s blog is full of sterling reviews and she is to blame for a couple of my own one-click moments already (and more to come I have no doubt) so does deserve to be shared at large….
Smug moment aside, this is just a spaceholder prior to the main blog of the week, which hopefully will be a guest-blog from the delightful Barbara Silkstone…do come back and check later in the week!
Thanks for dropping by!
