Vamping up the Facebook page!

 

Yes, it’s that time again. The seasons are moving on and it always makes me want to change things. I’ve been busy with work and the family over the summer holidays and now it’s time to get back into my writer head!! Here is the link to Tales of Alhanassa facebook page, feel free to drop along and like it 😉

https://www.facebook.com/Alhanassa/

We have a great new banner on there that shows off the covers of my books. You may notice a change or two leading up to Christmas. I’m having both the covers looked at and revamped. I am aware the images look a little fuzzy on here but on facebook they look fine.

I can’t believe it’s almost here!

It’s the 29th of March already!! Where did the first three months of 2017 go? There’s only two days to go until Dark Magic Rising is released on Smashwords! We have a fantastic facebook party planned. PLEASE feel free to come and join us. We have some lovely prizes to give away and some awesome guests lined up.

Bodelia's Anguish has been available for a year! How time flys

A year ago today ‪‎Bodelia’s Anguish was published via ‪smashwords‬. It has had an average of 37 downloads a month. I know that would look a little different if they were sales. However, I am more than pleased with its performance and I now have higher hopes for Dark Magic Rising.

If you’re interested in fantasy, it’s a short story of a little over 4,000 words. It also included a small first draft of the prologue and chapter one of Dark Magic Rising, that has a proposed publish date for this November.

Bodelia’s Anguish – The fury of a goddess betrayed is about to be unleashed on those she once loved. Will Alhanassa, the world she created, survive? Will the Immortal Council be able to sway her desire for revenge? The exciting prologue to a gripping new series.

Alhannasa, a land of beauty and diversity, created by the Most High Goddess, Bodelia. She planned that her ‘children’ those which will inhabit the world she’d made, would rule the land now the time had come for her to leave. The Immortal Council grew restless with her long absence, she knew her duty could be delayed no longer. Yet she wouldn’t completely abandon that which she had made. She would leave the Lesser Goddesses, her sisters, to watch over Alhanassa. With the aid of their magic, the mortals would surely flourish.

But even the plans of a Goddess are no match for evil. When an act of betrayal shatters Bodelia’s heart, will she be able to control the need for revenge? Or will the inhabitants of Alhanassa suffer the dire consequences of her wrath. An enthralling new series filled with action, magic, lust and love!

A huge thanks to everyone that has helped promote Bodelia’s Anguish.

Where Did it all Begin?

Alhannasa, a land of beauty and diversity, created by the Most High Goddess, Bodelia. She planned that her ‘children’ those which will inhabit the world she’d made, would rule the land now the time had come for her to leave. The Immortal Council grew restless with her long absence, she knew her duty could be delayed no longer. Yet she wouldn’t completely abandon that which she had made. She would leave the Lesser Goddesses, her sisters, to watch over Alhanassa. With the aid of their magic, the mortals would surely flourish.

The inspiration for the magical world I called Alhanassa comes from my love of nature. I’m British and I love the British country side, this lush island which I have nowhere near finished exploring, inspires me to put my characters in the places I’ve visited and loved. When describing places I have tried to keep the location I have in mind out of the descriptions. My daughters will often say to me “Hey Mum is that (Insert location name here)?” It makes me smile when they figure it out too. However, the UK doesn’t have vast sand dunes and deserts or rain forests but we do have snow topped mountains, beautiful lakes and lochs, we have rolling hills and patchwork vales. (The featured image is from our holiday in 2013 to Scotland, it’s taken from the camper van window of (I think) the Isle of Sky.)

Another reason for Alhanassa and the Goddesses is our own disturbing history. Continue reading
