A quick note… RELIGIOUS NUTTERS SOD OFF!

I don’t care about your religion! Period! This is not a religious thread. PERIOD! I’m not a church, synagogue or mosk recruiter. If you think you can post something that’s sole purpose is to start fights  – I’ll label you as spam and then report you if push comes to shove.
I may spout off on occasion and you may not agree with me. But it is my thread and I do my best to avoid religion as a subject, unless we’re discussing the cultures of my book titles.
If you don’t like me, my thoughts or what I write – Go somewhere else, there are tonnes of other blogs out there  from authors you may fancy to read.  If you’re a religious nutter – SOD OFF NOW!  I’ve got better things to do then engage in pointless post 11th century argument – more creative to be precise!

Okay, yes it’s divided – despite being only 16 chapters long *SIGH* …

 

This has been a roughly 2 year project and I feel relieved that I can finally take a moment and smell the flowers, or, in this case, coffee and scones!

Now to finish Book 2 of Elder Offensive: Ammutseba’s Stand and then go over notes for book 4 of Camden’s follies – parts 13 – 16. GERONIMO!

For now, back to the drawing board and writing desk ~ ALLONS – Y!

New approach, new cover for Kindle print edition and of course.. more labour for yours truly!

Elder Offensive part 1 cover

Okay, since I was having a good uphill slog with the full edition and Ebook one at that…
I decided to go with a smaller book 7 x 9 ( or was it 10? ) print edition and divide into two parts for this run. Will put out a full novel or 16 chapters, in this case, soon!
Am cracking the use of the template and renewing my old type – set skills.

Please enjoy as this is still in process as I need to clear up where the ISBN numbers are going.. * shrug * Always something. Anyway, will be at COSine as an Author officially this time and try and make a few other conventions and work the trades room, etc.

Anyway, 3 book series – Scales and Hearts, Camden’s Follies and of course Elder Offensive are it for now… for now. I have a few hundred tales to put to paper or Ebook, so…
ALLONS – Y!

Cheers! Please read and enjoy, never say never and never be cruel nor cowardly! Support selflessly ALL independent authors, artists, musicians, etc.!

Okay, here’s a test image for Elder Offensive…

Cover Test Image

And before the smart arses start up … YES! I know I’m going to have to crop or otherwise the image of the eye… among a few things. Anyway, tis is a CONCEPT piece. Also, if you ave the energy and other resources to be an armchair critic – You can come up with something and donate it to me!
A long time ago, I got fed up with the ” I can do better than that ” crowd. Mainly because when push and shove came into play – they folded and fell apart like wet paper!

Anyway, that’s me progress so far… I’m thinking of a frame for the inner square since the Elder Gods are famous for warping views of reality to suit their evil purposes. ( or so the tales tell). I’m trying to incorporate microsoft paint and corel paintshop pro x8 and getting good information or hints on how to use it – all the tools – and get around a lot of minor barriers. So far, no one seems to want to be of assistance and as much as I would have hoped. Any time I DO have the funds to begin working with an artist – they’re either busy, not interested or incredibly expensive. * SIGH *
Believe me, I’d LOVE to be able to hash out the best and most profitable deal for both parties… it’s just getting people to the table. So, for now, I use what I have and make the most out of it. Thus, it’s taken years instead of months to just get the first part of book one of Camden’s Follies out, let alone a small anthology of Dragon Stories…

But for now ~ All be well and may the blessings/wishes/promises be upon you, fulfilled and granted!

Another strange day… but maybe…

Okay, here’s my conundrum –

Should I have a contest? Email entries or should I just put up a book for reward? An Ebook is simple as all it requires is an email address. A solid copy requires a mailing or physical address.
Anyway, that’s what I’m wondering for my book projects up and coming!

Now, for the strangeness –

Today was given a dreary and very disheartening forecast in the weather arena. I oft wonder if the world or nature has a long standing grudge against me due to this and other events in my life.
However…
On the writing side, I now have some fairly great ideas for Book 4 of Camden’s Follies and a more solid and plausible ending for Elder Offensive.
Right now, it’s a contest for either raising funds again for book 1 cover art or working with someone who can help me watermark lizard – like eyes over a star background as well as an image of the top of a file folder… Hmmm… Sans scanning anything new in on the image front, I’m a bit flummoxed to say the least on this..
Well, I guess I can carry on and work on it . Chin up, full steam ahead and all that!

ALLONS – Y!

 

For now, or until I see you at COSine or a ComicCon near you with books for sale and a witty repartee for the panels…

Yeah, that’s me ugly mug on the back cover of an urban fantasy/fantasy piece about dragons from various eras in the last century at east…
Yes, I know it’s large and there’s a single sided cover edition that’s smaller that someone else helped out on and I’m using despite the title error.. Shhh!

Below is where you can sign – up and get weekend passes

I know this is a small writers convention, but I believe in it and the people who run it are first class – even if the hotel is a bit dodgy ( They’re researching a new venue as I type this, quite diligently!)

Any suggestions for conventions to attend?! Leave me a message and link with costs for vendor/trades tables -PLEASE!
Am willing to share a spot and all ~ Especially for all my fellow independent artists and authors ~ GERONIMO!
Until next time ~ Here are links for my books ~
