What the Walrus said.

5.0 out of 5 starsOut of this world

December 16, 2012

I’ve read hundreds of free books through my kindle and found many terrible books. This is not one of those books. I was surprised and pleased with how well this book is written. The characters are well developed and the story is excellent. I don’t write reviews often, but this book deserves my time to sing its praises. A lot of writers are afraid to show teenagers that have a real, believable romance between them. It’s usually a lot of unromantic crap. When I was a teen, my relationships were very mature and I’m glad to see someone write some feeling into a novel that doesn’t seem like kindergarten trash. Fantastic read, the second one is just as good if not better. I can’t wait to see Mark get serious with his power in the third book.”

I’ve made almost enough from Amazon to receive a check for a hundred dollars and the Smashwords version has added another fifty. That’s the reality of a writer’s life.

In those seven years, I’ve attended seminars, joined a writing group, *Waves at Vision Writers, read much, and written thousands and thousands of words. I have learned so much from the writing community, particularly over the last couple of years as I worked on a different project, Harmony. I’ve seen more of Australia than ever before and fallen in love with the country more and more. (The country, not the politicians.)

But like all good things when they get old, a good freshen up and relaunch will remind people I’m still around. I never completed the last book, too busy working, worrying and learning how to carve words into beautiful stories. Now, to quote Gough, It’s time.

Soon I will be relaunching the Kasdtien Cycle series as Novella’s, with refreshed content, taking account of seven years of feedback and learning, with brand new artwork, and some spit and polish.

There will be five novellas, because novellas are more popular for Young Adult right now. Each book will be approximately 40000 words, the last to be written by September, is the as-yet unreleased conclusion. It will be named One, (Because that’s how I roll.) The old books are now removed from everywhere but the Darkweb, so if you want a copy of the old form, sorry. The new set will be relaunched among much fanfare, on Amazon, and there’ll be giveaways and fun stuff all along the way.

I am planning to release each one monthly, beginning with Parallel, 9th September 2019, mark it in your calendar.

Over the next couple of month’s I’m heading to a writers retreat, writing every chance I get, all while traveling the countryside and blogging about weird shit I see, and generally keeping my head above water. So if you’ve read Parallel before, help support a poor struggling author and download the new version in August to see what’s new, help get the word out, review it when released and give me a hug when the black dog bites.

I feel my writing gives an Australian voice to the Spec Fiction scene and the occasional, “I like it,” is always appreciated.

Release dates are as follows.

  1. Parallel                                         9th of September 2019

  2. Kasdt,                                            29th of September 2019

  3. The Immortal Darkness           19th of October 2019

  4. Kasdtien                                       12th of November 2019

  5. One                                                9th of December 2019, (Happy birthday to me.)

Stay tuned people, more info will come in the lead up to launch. Including cover reveals and prizes.

I’m in the Web-o-sphere, on Facebook, Twitter and My travel blog, (Travels With An Old Fart.), Subscribe for updates, and always up for a chat about anything writerly.
