Tracker Series #4 Published

Mage, the fourth book in the Tracker Series has now been published as an eBook.

I had hoped to add a dragon image to the cover, but did not work with the cloudy sky in the final background. Hopefully, I can add a dragon to the next Tracker series cover.  Continue reading

Planning for 2017

Looking back over 2016 plans I can say I “failed” to complete all my plans for 2016 but I did “succeed” in most of them. So a big win for me!

To end the year, I need to create the 2016 Tift Publishing Catalogue with links to published books onto Tift Publishing web site. Continue reading

2016 Review

Needless to say, I have not finished Mage, my fourth Tracker Series story.

Still, I hope to get the last few chapters done this coming week, and do the first edit, before the end of the year.

Then work on the cover and formatting in Dec – Jan holidays and hopefully, release at the end of January, 2017.

I also plan on not doing much of anything during January except watch Australian Tennis on TV.

Another Talisman

Writing Book Three of my Tracker Series is rolling along slowly.

I am up to chapter 15 and Misty is getting herself into more trouble, along with Dallas. Fun!

I also plotted one way she can get out of trouble, but may come up with another way, or two, if I find any “plot bunnies” in the next few chapters.

Which brings me to my second talisman.  Continue reading

Building a Culture in a Fictitious World

I have been busy thinking about the third story in my fantasy Tracker series.

And building a little background on the culture of Convane which is where the mages train and uphold the magic laws written after they won a war with an eastern neighbour called Lealand.

I already worked out how the magic works, and dot pointed the magic laws before I started the series, along with a rough map of Convane and all its neighbouring countries, but only touched on the culture of the citizens. Continue reading

January Writing Life.

January only has one week left! Where does the time go?

I normally have January off work, so that I can watch the Australian Tennis. This January is no different to previous years.

Any New Year Resolutions are all gone and forgotten in this household. However, my publishing goals list is growing as I think of more tasks I could add to marketing, writing, and admin areas. Continue reading

Fantasy Tracker Series #1 – Rider

My first fantasy “Rider”, Book One of the Tracker Series will be published on 2/1/2016.

Rider

Never admit to seeing ichur, the silvery residue of magic spells. Not if you want to stay under the radar of the Councillors of Convane.

Swift, a purebred tracker horse who can smell the smallest trace of ichur, can also remove the magic energy from any human or talisman.

Dallas, rider of Swift, knows how to create a spell without leaving residue, even if he is not a trained mage.

Neither Dallas or Swift admit to seeing and using the magic energy. If they did, Dallas would have his ability to see ichur removed, and Swift would be given to an approved mage by order of the council.

A new fantasy series including mages, dragons, tracker horses and more.

The links for preorder will be updated by Tift Publishing as they come available here.

Sneak Peek at New Cover

I am busy with editing and designing the cover, ready for the print version of my first fantasy in a new series called Tracker to be published.

As usual I struggle with writing blurbs or cover copy to entice readers to pick up my stories. So, the cover copy, along with the rest of the cover may change before “Rider” is ready to publish.
