“Are you sure this is okay?” Sera asked. “I’m a little creeped out by the thought of walking into something that looks solid.”

“I know what you mean,” Ophelia said. “But I’m sure it will be okay. I trust Silver.”

“So do I,” Sera said. “But that doesn’t stop it making my skin crawl for some reason.” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: Check out this quick blog post about where I’m at.

It must have been a couple of hour after they had gone to bed that Silver woke them.

“Come on!” she whispered. “Your parents are finally asleep.” She looked over at Sera. “Your father snores.” Read the rest of this entry »

Not a Sunday Blog

May 17th, 2016  |  Published in News

Hi folks,

I haven’t written a blog post for a while so even though it’s not Sunday I thought I’d do a short post to say where we’re at.

Personal life: New job is going okay I think, but gosh am I tired.

Caredale: I’m enjoying posting Caredale. I hope you peeps are enjoying it too.

Haventon: When George RR Martin was writing A Dance With Dragons one of the reasons it was delayed was because of what he referred to as the Meereenese knot which was a problem he had getting various characters to Meereen who needed to be there. Right now I have my own Meereenese knot in Haventon which is why it hasn’t updated for a while. I’ve nearly finished chapter 17 but I will try to write 18 and 19 before I start posting again.

Whisper: Has fallen foul of the Haventon tangle as well. I alternate writing chapters of it and Haventon so while I’ve been fighting with chapter seventeen nothing has been written on Whisper. I think I may move to writing alternating days on them so this doesn’t happen again.

Dragon Wars: I hope to get Arc 3 out as a book by the end of the year. I don’t currently have any sort of ETA on posting arc 5. The rewrite of arc 4 may well be so intensive that I have to repost it first.

Shattered: I’m nearly ready to launch Shattered as PWYW serial on Gumroad. Watch out for the announcement! For now here’s the current cover (I’ll get a professional one once I have the pennies for now you get my okay but no pro quality art) and the blurb to whet your appetite.

SHATTERED(2)

Conflict shakes the heavens as an injured goddess heals among her people. The War for Heaven has begun.

The Moon shatters in the sky. The Moon Goddess Enled collapses in front of her priest, Ranet. Not just duty but love compels him and his people, the Saleika, to care for her even as they struggle to flee the ruin of their lands.

The disaster that has befallen them is no accident. Someone plots to supplant the gods, someone who doesn’t care how much suffering they cause as long as they prevail. This was just the first blow and their loyalty to the gods puts the Saleika in danger.

But their stories hold secrets that put them in even greater danger. Unravelling these secrets may reveal the enemy’s identity, but that will force them to return the ancient homeland they have tried to forget.

That’s all for now.

After dinner, Ophelia lay on her stomach on Sera’s bed and tried to work on her homework. It wasn’t easy because her mind kept going back to what was happening.

Sera was researching their History homework on Wikipedia when both girls heard a tapping on the window and saw Silver sitting on the window ledge. Read the rest of this entry »

“Ugh!” A gentle shaking roused Ophelia from unconsciousness and she found herself lying on the footpath. “I’m alive?” She tried to sit up but a wave of nausea stopped her.

“It certainly seems so.” Aunt Sophie removed her hand from Ophelia’s shoulder. She sounded torn between amusement and concern. “You must have been dizzier than you thought if it made you faint. I didn’t think I spun the car that much.” Read the rest of this entry »

“I told you that it wouldn’t help,” Aunt Sophie said as Ophelia climbed into the back seat. “Let John deal with her. He can always cheer her up when she gets like this.”

“Does this happen a lot?” Ophelia swallowed guiltily. How could she have missed it? Read the rest of this entry »

At the gate, Ophelia paused and looked in cautiously to see if Kate was around.

“She’s looking for someone she doesn’t want to run into,” Sera said. “Kate Brooks.”

“Oh, the girl Philip mentioned yesterday?” Read the rest of this entry »

“The park’s been vandalised,” Cass said the next morning as they prepared for school. “See, I’m right about it being dangerous.”

“What happened?” Ophelia suspected that she knew. It must be the aftermath of the fight – it’d left quite a mess after all. Read the rest of this entry »

A few streets away, Kate Stevens sat on a bench in her garden and contemplated revenge and how to get it when Ophelia had some sort of superpower. If only someone else had seen it, she could have reported the girl as potentially emerging. If she could get anyone to listen to her she still could, except the fact only she’d seen it would get her the same problem and she didn’t need that. No one needed that.

“Call me Sera,” she said absently, clearly mulling over what had been said. “Mum was clearly on something when she named me.”

“Very well, Sera,” Silver said.

“So you must have slipped into the area where normal people can’t see you, as well,” Sera said. “That’s why it didn’t attract attention.”

Ophelia nodded. That much was obvious. She turned back to Silvie. “But what was that thing?” Read the rest of this entry »
