In the next few months I will be releasing a novella in my fantasy series entitled ‘Genesis of Light‘. I really need some help with the release. It could be sharing posts, hosting me on your blog, reading an advanced copy, or just giving me your opinions on the cover.
If you are willing to help a girl out, please visit this link and fill out the form. (It only involves a few tick boxes so it won’t take more than a minute or two). Thank you so much, wonderful people!
My editing process is a long and tiring one, but strangely I wholeheartedly enjoy parts of it (especially the early stages.)
I initially write my books using two methods. I spend a few hours a week sitting in cafes or restaurants with my trusty notebook, where I will hand-write sections of my story. It’s a bit old-school, I know, but there’s something special about cutting off from technology and getting back to basics with good old pen and paper. I often find that this is when my creativity truly blossoms.
Last Saturday, I was lucky enough to be interviewed on Radio Leicester by the wonderful Emma Boydell. Having heard my recent segment about Marvel’s latest movie, Black Panther, I was invited onto the show to talk about my writing.
My immersive fantasy novels A Chronicle of Chaosand The Shield of Soren are part of a dark, epic series called The Light and Shadow Chronicles. This series features warriors, epic battles, angels, demons, magic and people with incredible powers.
So what makes it any different from countless other fantasy series? Read on to find out…
I recently sent out a questionnaire asking readers what they wanted to know about The Shield of Soren before it was released. The most popular response (by far!) was that people wanted to know which characters from A Chronicle of Chaos they would be seeing again. So I’ve put together a list:
Callista Nienna – a figure of authority in A Chronicle of Chaos, Callista still features in her role as leader of the Children of Light, but we will see more of her as a mother as well in The Shield of Soren.
Vincent Wilder – the dark and foreboding leader of the Brotherhood of Shadow will make a few evil appearances in The Shield of Soren.
Raven Lennox – while Raven Lennox was a father figure to the headstrong protagonist of A Chronicle of Chaos, he is the combat mentor of wayward child, Soren. He is a main character in this book as opposed to a support character.
Deacon Thialdor – Deacon only appears a few times in A Chronicle of Chaos, showing off his impressive redwings. In The Shield of Soren, he is major character who has not yet gained his unusual power.
Soren Nitaya – Soren only appears very briefly in A Chronicle of Chaos, but is the main character of this book.
The Bavelize – we will get to see more of the mysterious smoky presence that guides the Brotherhood of Shadow.
Tattooed man in black – in A Chronicle of Chaos there is a mysterious man covered in tattoos and shrouded in darkness. We learn little about him in the first book. He will make another enigmatic appearance in this book.
There will also be some brand-new characters introduced. Some major people in A Chronicle of Chaos will not appear in this book at all (Chaos, Anathema, Phantom, Mikhail.)
Here is the family tree for characters that appear in The Shield of Soren:
