Asterion – Playing Games

Another extract from the novel I am writing, which is the first proper sequel to my first novel and expands a lot on the characters and their world (there are some novellas, but they’re mainly fluff written for fun).  This extract pretty much continues directly on from the last one I posted,

Reminder again I’ll be soon looking for beta readers for my second novel, Aserion.  The more the merrier, as they say (unless you’re a socially anxious Aspie like me, in which case doing things like this are not merry at all.  But the reality of being a writer today is I suppose I have to start networking with…

Asterion: School

Just a very short extract from my novel in progress, where Kaya and Jennifer talk about school:

“What are we going to do with her?” Kaya yawned.  “Tenley, I mean.”

“I thought we already decided that,” Jen reminded her.

“But I mean,

Asterion: Thale & Glauce

Another extract.  Yay!  And if you’re joining for the first time, this is from the novel I am writing now, which is a sequel to The Little Queen.  It’s a smart sci-fi adventure with some humour and fun, mostly female, characters.  But this time, we’re meeting the main ‘baddies’ I suppose.

Constantly rewriting introductions.  I didn’t really like having an Introduction to The Little Queen.  I was advised to tack one on as it was suggested to be a good idea to be upfront about what the story was about (and I admit I had my own concerns about people knowing what they were getting into,

Asterion – Chapter Three, Part 2

I think it’s still chapter three anyway.  I haven’t quite organised all of the chapters yet, and this one’s quite long.  Anyway, this is still a draft of course so things may change before the novel comes out.  In the meantime, go check out other adventures with these characters (and I’ve a few other novellas and shorts planned as well).

Asterion – Chapter Three

My New Years resolution is obviously just to write more.  Same as last year, although I didn’t get nearly as much finished as I’d hoped.  Another reason it was a crappy year.  But this year will be different, and I’m sure I will get finished a number of the things I started in 2016.

Faeries & Elves

Obviously a big source of inspiration for me, and in The Little Queen, are fairy stories.  By which I mean stories about fairies or sometimes elves.  Naturally I read up on and researched as much as I could about them.

There are a few problems you encounter when trying to research these things.

The Little Queen – Themes

The Little Queen is still You Set The Price on Smashwords, and $2.99 everywhere else.  Should really update the description and everything on the website.  But now the necessary marketing stuff is out the way,today instead of talking about the plot I’m going to quickly go other some of the themes in this story,

Of course having said all that last night, I remember I’ve also said that Jennifer is kind of like a modern witch.  Living by herself outside outside of town, wandering the woods in search of interesting spores and fungi,  Talks to animals (although of course they don’t talk back…
