A/N: Sorry about the delay on the last couple of chapters of Lord of the Wolves. Have a chapter of Whisper to make up for it.


When Mark finished his stint in the dome Prima immediately ambushed him with her request for navigation training. Amanpreet smothered a grin with her hand as the small Talosian actually bounced around him while making her request. Mark watched Prima’s antics for a moment with a bemused expression.

“You want to learn to navigate?” he asked. “That’s not a quick thing to learn, Queen Prima.” Read the rest of this entry »

LoTW unexpected hiatus update

April 21st, 2018  |  Published in Haventon Chronicles, News

Hi Peeps!

Sorry I haven’t posted for the last couple of weeks. Nothing is wrong except the that I am not happy with Chapter 30 yet and am rewriting it. Tomorrow I am going to post a chapter of Whisper that I almost have ready so I am not leaving you with nothing to read.

Sorry for the delay,


Lord of the Wolves Chapter Twenty-Nine

A/N: Happy Easter, peeps! Sorry this is late. I kinda lost track of the days.

What Cheryl had referred to as the Winter Garden turned out to be just that. A large courtyard filled with all kinds of winter flowering plants in spite of the fact that the walls were made of shining blue ice and it was cold enough to freeze the fountain at the heart of the frost rimed lawn in full spate. The entire garden, it seemed, was a tribute to the beauty that could be found in winter.

In spite of the many dealings he’d had with Mistwalkers over his three centuries of life Michael had never actually been in the mists before. And even though he was terrified for Laurel he couldn’t help looking around in fascination as they rode on fairy horses towards the Summer Palace.

Carry me out of here, Lost Child, and I will guide you safely to our allies. ​

That definitely had to be the crown, Laurel decided. There was nothing else in here it could be.

“Our allies? You mean your allies​?” she asked. “How do I know they are mine.”

I mean Our allies, Lost Child.​ They are the same thing, especially should you choose to accept me. Read the rest of this entry »

Colin sat by his Aunt Rachel and listened quietly as the other’s plotted.​ He’d arrived with the rest of Maelin’s pack to help with the attack, but had soon realised that he was not going to be sent in either party. Apparently Lucy said he wasn’t recovered enough from his malnourishment to be going into a pitched battle yet and Maelin deferred to her. It made him feel useless but no amount of arguing had shifted her or Maelin on the matter.

A/N: Please check out my February Update post here.

Anna watched her aunt treat Stephen’s wounds with fascination. Lucy worked quickly and methodically starting with the largest wounds and even the most gaping gash ceased bleeding and seemed to melt and knit together in moments when she touched it. What Anna really wanted was time to talk to her and find out from her why she was siding with someone everyone said was evil, but somehow that seemed unlikely with everything that was happening.

February Update

February 25th, 2018  |  Published in News  |  1 Comment

Hi Peeps!

Things are still going better for me. I now have a permanent job (subject to six months probationary period) working 30 hours a week. My mental health is still improving (even with the anxiety weasels trying to get back into my brain by insisting things are going *too* well).

With a little stability in my life I’m starting to look forwards again and with Lord of the Wolves nearing it’s conclusion (seriously – I think this first draft will be done by the end of March) I’m starting to think about the book release a few months down the line. (I’ve also started the outlining on Book Three – The Summer Queen).

This means a few things:

  1. Once it’s done I’ll switch over to posting Whisper on Saturdays while I edit Lord of the Wolves and I’ll also be looking for beta readers again.
  2. Prior to the Lord of the Wolves Book Launch I want to get Haventon Born into the hands of as many readers as possible and, to be honest, it’s been selling abysmally because I haven’t had the energy for marketing.
  3. So I’m planning a book relaunch for Haventon Born on May 8th (my birthday). This is just like a book launch only for an already extent book. And for that I need your help.

How can you help?

Firstly I need reviews on Amazon. Reviews help visibility and also many advertising outlets will only allow adverts by books with a certain number of Am reviews. If you read and enjoyed Haventon Born reviewing it on your local Amazon store would be a great help. (No bounties for this, I’m afraid, I don’t want to be accused of buying reviews).

Secondly I am trying to raise a small marketing budget. It’s not a large enough amount to do an indigogo or kickstarter for so I’ve set a target on my Ko-Fi page instead. If you enjoy my free stuff and have a spare dollar to throw in the hat I’ll acccept it gratefully. You can also see some of my Fantasy Maps and the occassional link to a piece of flash fiction on my Ko-Fi page. so it’s worth a visit even if you can’t donate.

And finally, as I mentioned, I need beta readers for Lord of the Wolves. If you volunteer for this you’ll get a free final copy of the ebook at the end.

So that’s what’s been going on for me. How have you been, peeps.

“What about reading her mind?” David asked. “Wouldn’t that prove if she’s honest or not?”​

“Would it were so easy,” Lillian said. “Most often that would be a solution, but Lady Cheryl is a lorekeeper and the magic that grants them their deep knowledge of our kind also protects their minds from such probing so it may not be taken by our enemies.”

“It’s how we protect our secrets from the Hollowers,” Cheryl said. “To be a lorekeeper is to be both a living library and its librarian. On the positive side that means even if I were being forced to work against you – which I am not – Gwen wouldn’t be able to get your plans from my mind.” Read the rest of this entry »

He was inside the sword David realised almost immediately. Mentally anyway. Though he was surprised that the inside of the sword appeared to be a fairytale castle.

“It is a little strange,” the woman sat on the stairs of the dais said. “But it’s coming from your mind not mine so you’ll have to figure that one out yourself.” She rose to her feet and he saw that she was dressed in armour of the same glowing milky ice as the sword and that she strongly resembled Sabren. He had a feeling that he knew who she was. Read the rest of this entry »
