I’m on a winter break at the moment working on the sequel to my fantasy Christmas novel, The Sleighriders. But I also recently prepared The Sleighriders for self-publishing in paperback and was so excited to get my proof copy arrive a few days ago, – just ready for going live for Christmas. So I’m shamelessly posting in hopes that some of you somewhere may have a son or daughter, niece or nephew, who may like a book for Christmas! It’s a full length fantasy novel, 442 pages, full of elves, trolls, magic, strange creatures, and adventure.
So here it is and thanks so much for having a look. If you should decide you may like a copy then you can find it here on Amazon. It’s also available as an eBook.
It’s funny how a break from routine makes a person think, often about that very subject – their routines and and day to day life. My recent trip to England was suddenly able to give me a detached view of things, in particular how blogging has gradually overtaken my life and left a lot less room for other things. I have often tended to follow new blogs in a rush of enthusiasm and consequently have more incoming new posts than I can cope with, along with making comments and replying to comments to my regular bloggers. And the fact that I have five blogs to create posts for really doesn’t help!
The thing is I want to write the sequel to my fantasy novel The Sleighriders. I have a skeleton story and about eleven and a half thousand words written already from a couple of years ago and now I’m dying to get stuck in and finish it, but I know I can’t keep up with blogging and concentrate on the book. And so I’m going to take the winter off, starting today, and return to my new novel. I can’t wait to get started!
A huge thank you to you all for following my blogs, I will miss our communications, but hopefully you may rejoin me next spring when I’ll probably have finished the book. I will be continuing to write some short posts for my Author blog Talking of Writing
Best Wishes to you All!
See You in the Spring!
Words from Mick, a fellow blogger, biker, traveller. In a recent post about the mudslides in Switzerland his words resonated so strongly with me that I had to stop and reread them. They had to go in a post.
No deity in the heavens, it’s the land that nurtures and provides. It’s the land that has wrath.
