Available Now – Chronicles of Riss: Adventures in Sorcery Paperback Edition

It’s here! It’s finally here! Woohoo!

What is? The paperback edition of my book, Chronicles of Riss: Adventures in Sorcery, that’s what! After debating it for a while, I finally decided to have a paperback version of this short story collection. And now it’s here and Chronicles of Riss is no longer only available as an ebook. Now, those of you who prefer to hold an actual book in your hand to read instead of an e-reader can enjoy this book full of fun, fantastical adventures.

Confronting evil sorcerers. Fighting monsters. Dueling metal golems. Searching for a sea monster. Hunting lost treasure. Finding a missing show dog. Competing in talent contests. Helping lost children. These are just some of the widely varied exploits that the young mercenary sorceress Marissa “Riss” Cobalt shares in this second Adventures in Sorcery book. Riss reveals how she ended up as a mercenary and chronicles some of the many adventures, ranging from fun to serious, that she’s had prior to the events of Kismet and Tell.

Indie Pride Day 2016 #IndiePrideDay #IndieBooksBeSeen

Today is Indie Pride Day, a day for indie authors to share their pride – and their works – and to support each other. As an indie author myself, I thought I’d share a photo of me with my first book, the fun Fantasy novel Kismet And Tell.

7 Signs You’ve Gone Too Far With Your Advertising

Hahaha! These are hilarious! Thankfully I’m not that far gone yet, and I haven’t turned into Jay Sherman…yet.

Legends of Windemere

A big chunk of an indie author’s life is promoting their books.  Whether it’s available or about to come out, you need to spread the word.  Yet, sometimes an author might go too far and things begin to unravel.  At least mentally.

  1. Your dreams appear in Twitter form and you are being chased by hashtags.  Trending topics fly through the background, most of them either politics or celebrity gossip.  The plus side is that you no longer have that nightmare about winning a badminton tournament and realize you’re naked.

Things You Want To Do After a Plot Hole Discovery-3

Picture this.

You are busy reviewing your draft.

Things are going well. Your brain is busy projecting images of you collecting a literary prize and of a famous film star begging you to cast them as the lead, when your book is turned into a film.

Then from nowhere the rug from under your literary feet is whipped away and down you fall into some huge plot hole! Gasp! It is more like a gigantic crater.

The events of your story are now illogical or impossible. You know in an instant that it is going to involve some serious rewriting to fill it. The plot hole spans at least six chapters – sharp intake of breath!

Here is what you might do next:

  1. Let out a piercing scream.
  2. Start to wail.
  3. Yell.
  4. Kick the litter bin.
  5. Go hide underneath the covers in your bed (a favourite of mine!)
  6. Go hide…
