#FilmReview: NO TIME TO DIE #JamesBond

I don’t review every film I see, but this one begged for it on the grounds that the main character in my Five Kingdoms series (Rustam Chalice) was born out of my frustration that Bond was never allowed to grow as a character. NO TIME TO DIE is Daniel Craig’s last Bond film, and someone […]

And here they are: #coverreveal for THE PRINCE’S HEIR and the re-covered PRINCE’S MAN #epicfantasy

Without further ado, here’s the gorgeous new cover for THE FIVE KINGDOMS book #1, THE PRINCE’S MAN I still love the original cover, but once book #4 is released I will also be putting all four together as a boxset, so they need to match. Besides, isn’t this new one gorgeous? And so to the […]

Excerpt and a (bit) more cover: THE PRINCE’S HEIR #EPICFANTASY

Now THE PRINCE’S HEIR is in the editing phase, I’m turning (some) of my attention to all that comes next, such as setting up a release schedule to include: cover reveal excerpts keeping tabs on timings for formatting and publishing on various platforms advertising schedule pre-orders (Amazon and ?) shares on other blogs updating ALL […]

It’s Done! THE PRINCE’S HEIR is in editing #Fantasy

I’ve been pretty quiet recently on the blog front, to free up some much-needed writing time. I’d always intended to get book #4 of The Five Kingdoms series out before the end of this year, but with signing the contract on my next equestrian book, the pressure was on! I set myself an end of […]

August bonanza book sales #EpicFantasy

Just a quick post as I’m racing towards the end of the big bang climax of The Five Kingdoms book #4, and I’ve started wrapping up the epilogue at the same time. So nervous about what people will say about how I’ve handled it, but this month was a confidence booster in terms of sales. […]

THE PRINCE’S HEIR – excerpt from my WIP #amwriting #EpicFantasy

As my WIP gallops towards a close (yes, I’m writing the climax right now, and I’ve ordered the cover – yay!), I thought I’d share a few snippets with you – I shared the prologue a while ago, which you can find here in case you missed it. I never find it easy, picking out […]

Sharing a little of my #WIP #amwriting

During the first lockdown, much of my time was taken up with outdoor activities, such as gardening, dog walking, and riding my horse. There wasn’t much time left over for writing and, like it was for so many others, creativity didn’t flow well during that period. This time around though, what with being more severely […]

Sharing a new #BookReview of THE PRINCE’S MAN #EpicFantasy

All the books in my Five Kingdoms series have been selling with gratifying regularity, but it’s always a thrill to discover a new review from a delighted reader, so when I found this, I had to share it. Robin Cappello 5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! Reviewed in the United States on October 4, 2020 I […]

What’s in a theme? & #BookReview by @KSMarsden

Way back when I was starting to write with a view to publication, someone asked me about the theme of my book. It wasn’t something I’d even thought about: I was writing an SF adventure story, what did theme have to do with anything? I reckoned I’d better consider this question though, and happily answered […]
