I admit to some degree of surprise but I am very honoured to have been recognised as the winner of GOLD in the category of Fantasy/Other Worlds in the Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards 2016 for Duilleog. Duilleog was my first novel in the New Druids series and a novel I wrote to fulfil a long-held desire to see my name on a novel. Now having published book two, and working on number three, I can only wonder how writing has become such a passion. If you haven’t read my two novels, please do so. And leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads!
I wrote Duilleog sometime ago and went through all the pain indie writers go through. Writing the novel was the easy part – it was the formatting, rules, publishing challenges, etc that plagued me. It took me nearly half a year to simply figure out the how of publishing. Craobh took me only nine months start to finish. Stoc will be about the same.
Thanks to the judges over at Dan Poynter’s. You honour me.
In advance of the publication of Craobh: A New Druids series, Volume Two, I am now offering Duilleog: A New Druids series, Volume One for FREE over at Smashwords. This should allow those who want to dive into my world unfettered access to the start of the story. My new editor, Miranda Schmidt is doing a wonderful job in making my mess readable.
My new editor, Miranda Schmidt is doing a wonderful job in making my mess readable. Craobh is a terrific continuation of the Will Arbor storyline and the return to Belkin should make most people happy and aching for more.
This second go-around at writing has been much easier. Sadly, real life keeps interfering. I long for the day when all I have to do is write! Spread the word folks!
Craobh will be published on May 31, 2016, on Amazon, Kobo and Smashwords.
