Reader reaching out…

I love the way the internet puts writers in touch with readers. Today Bob from Beauty in Ruins review blog sent me this!

He’s sitting on the edge of a lake somewhere reading book three of KRK. Go for it Bob. Wish I was doing the same thing!

Here it is, the trailer for The Price of Fame

Thanks to my long suffering DH and Jason and Nat Collins who did the music!

Copies of The Price of Fame should be arriving next week. I promise, first thing I’ll do is send out the prize copies to the competition winners who’ve been waiting so patiently.

Am planning on interviewing Daryl about the proces of creating trailers, creativity and art.

Fun on Twitter

Those Hip Young Dudes at Solaris Press tweeted: To win a copy of Rowena Cory Daniells’ Outcast Chronicles trilogy, tell your followers what magical power you would like to possess!

I came back with:  Asked Teenage son what magical power he’d like. He wants 2 be able to convince people to do things. (Should be a politician!)

Here are some responses.

@SolarisBooks my magical power would be the ability to split myself into multiple entities; everything gets done, and fast, too!

@Solarisbooks The ability to break things down into their constituent atoms and reassemble them as I saw fit.

@SolarisBooks Would Love and Save count, or is that basically Rewinding Time? Whatever it is, that would be epic :))

@SolarisBooks The ability, at any time and merely by clicking my fingers, to transport myself and my wife instantly to our bedroom. Naked.

@SolarisBooks The power to ensure all that stuff you loved as a kid stayed true when you became an adult. Not just the memories.

@SolarisBooks The ability to answer other people’s questions five seconds before they answer them. Just to see their disbelief.

@SolarisBooks  I’d like the ability to absorb any knowledge and skills instantly.

@Solarisbooks the ability to destroy fifty shades of grey just by sayings its name, thus ending its tyranny.

@solarisbooks the power to grow wings like a dragon and fly

And one smart guy said:

@SolarisBooks asks what magical power I’d like to possess. Well, it’s simple: I just want to HAVE a magical power, doesn’t matter what!! 🙂

Don’t know who the winner was, but I’d like to thank them all for entering!

The magical power I’d like? to be able to download stories straight from my brain without having to spend hours sitting at the keyboard!

Such a nerdy writer thing to say.

Winner Lee Battersby book give-away!

Lee says…

I liked xfirefly9x’s reply, because I could see the thought processes behind it and the desire to find some sort of normalcy in extraordinary circumstances is one we can all respond to.

But there was something insanely ambitious in Maree’s desire to go hunting the kraken, and the crazy-underwater-adventure theme fits in with The Corpse-Rat King itself, so for sheer bravado, lunacy, and sense of adventure, I’m going to give the nod to Maree.

 

So Maree email Lee. leebattersby(at)gmail(dot)com

A round up of guest blog posts…

The Outcast Chronicles have been released into the wild – I always think of the movie Born Free and the young lions being released into the African plans – and I should have copies of The Price of Fame next week so I have been really busy. Have also  been battling the ‘flu which is going around (still teaching because it is the end of trimester and I don’t want to leave the students in the lurch)  and writing guest posts/interviews.

Just one more blog post…
