LORE's complete picture

Posted this over on the Lore Series blog and thought I'd share here also. This is the complete picture for all the tales that encompass Torrullin Valla's epic journey through time. Of course, Avaelyn is still in progress and thus will the Ancient Terra omnibus only come after Avaelyn's completion, but this is the complete picture as I see it at this point :)


Now available!

The dude in the mirror is trying to kill her!

Ivy moves into an overgrown cottage in the back of beyond two days before Christmas. She soon discovers that the old place keeps old secrets. The mirror above her mantlepiece is not what it seems. Ash and oil footsteps appear from nowhere, as does writing on a wall.

Is her refuge haunted? Ha, well, she’ll decorate the bejeezus out of it, overwhelm whatever it is with pretty baubles and blinking lights. Not everyone loves Christmas as much as she does, after all.

A good plan indeed … until Gabriel introduces himself.

Old houses certainly do keep old secrets.

Update and apology

Hello, everyone! Let me start with saying I'm sorry it has been quiet here. I have missed posting with regularity, but there have been good reasons :) Those reasons form part of the update as stated in the title. Firstly, four new translations, two of which are now complete and published (still waiting on Amazon, though), two of which are in final stages.


(in progress)

While that was going on, I prepared my short story - G A B R I E L - from the Christmas anthology published in 2018 as a standalone, including a bonus chapter and epilogue. This has now been uploaded, and I'll post the blurb and link once it's live.

Besides other duties I simply couldn't ignore, AVAELYN; The Enshrouded World has seen some action. My intention was to have a first draft ready by year end and I put my shoulder to the wheel, so to speak. At 100k words, though, it's not near finished! Hopefully the Christmas break will offer more time to add to the story before editing can commence. Seriously, my characters are misbehaving, and I'm already thinking that the WIP cover I have will need to change to reflect that.

All in all, something had to give to keep up with so many tasks, and that meant social media and blog posts. Hopefully normal routines will resume shortly … then again, um, Christmas …

Speaking of Christmas, I do have some intriguing reads available!

Chat again soon :)

New translated titles

Two new translations! Italian versions of the Jeweller and the Student

Clicked publish earlier, so they will be live soon.

A belated hello to November!

Hi, everyone :)

Forgive the sudden drop in posts - hubby and I went on a bit of a trip, kinda a staycation, meaning we road tripped around Ireland. No computers, no social media etc (although I did occasionally check in on FB), so this a belated hello November from me. And let me just say, the moment we turned the clocks back on 31 Oct, the cold said HELLO right back! 

Missed out on posting for Halloween as we were staying over in a small town. I did see many costumes on the night, though, and an added bonus, the entire town's lights went out as if to say 'It's Halloween!'. Spooky. Fortunately that didn't last too long :)

Here are a few pics to showcase the light at various times (seriously, the light just lent itself to every photo!).

NFT books gaining traction of social media

These are two screenshots of tweets I posted, and within minutes they gained comments and retweets. A good sign!

Worked on Ancient Illumination also!

Yes, behind the scenes it's been busy - covers this and covers that! Below are the new looks for AI's translated covers, the English version, and also the fresh audio cover. As stated in the post below, these take a while to update online :)

Caregiver receives an overhaul

Another project completed! Decided to give the Caregiver's translation and audio book covers some new life to compliment the English ebook. (Note: it will take a while to appear on Audible and Amazon)

Some tweaks and new translations update

Updated 2 covers … 

… because the Jeweller needs to fit with its audio book cover and the upcoming Italian translation. The updated Student now fits better also, and an Italian translation to add to the Spanish one is coming soon. One other translation is currently in progress: Ethereal Musician into Portuguese. The covers for the translations will be finalised once titles are confirmed.
