A New Path: The Publication of The Coraidic Sagas

The last two weeks have thrown up some big changes for me and my little writing Dungeon... One of the biggest is the decision to self publish my first trilogy of fantasy books! Woo! Book babies! Everyone loves book babies! I've decided to run a bit of a commentary on the process as it happens,... Continue Reading →

Bookmarks for Mark’s Books

Another competition is underway at That Thorn Guy and this time it's all about bookmarks! The themes could be across any of Mark Lawrence's current novels or based on a sneak peek of a yet-to-be-released trilogy.  I do love a challenge and without much writing work on at the moment, my mum asked if I...

On the Book

I've been completely slack in posting of late, focussing what small sparks of energy I have on finishing my second manuscript, Blood of Heirs.   It took just over 12 months, consists of a little over 116,000 words and 40 something chapters, and was rudely interrupted by abdominal surgery and a joint fusion in my right...

For close to three years now, I've referred to myself professionally as a 'writer', though I've been writing for almost fourteen years all told.... Continue Reading →

I came to meet Prince Jalan a good few weeks after the novel was released worldwide, thanks to an extraordinarily slow postal service from the UK to the antipodes now known as Australia. This was made significantly worse by the need to have the parcel delivered to my home in the middle of the Queensland... Continue Reading →

In film, books or on television, they find it hard to process the creator's decision to send the plot or characters down certain pathways and into situations they are unlikely to escape. Reading and watching fantasy... Continue Reading →

Girls? Where art thou girls?

I really need to train my brain to come up with blogs during daylight hours. In any case, the kid has been up twice already tonight and the husband has just left for work, so now is as good a time as any to scrawl out my thoughts. As you know I'm an entrant in... Continue Reading →
