Shrouded Soul Kindle Cover

Shrouded Soul by Clare Davidson

Available now, to buy from Amazon US and UK, the latest release in the Hidden YA series by Clare Davidson, SHROUDED SOUL.

Keeping secrets. Telling lies. Kim is protecting everyone. Isn’t she?

Kim’s secrets are pushing Sophie away, whilst AJ’s fears are damaging their fledgling relationship. Kim tries to reassure him, but she knows he should be worried. He should be running. She keeps telling herself they can all have a normal life, free from the influence of the Baneem—but it’s the biggest lie of all.

The illusion Kim is clinging to is shattered when AJ vanishes. But he isn’t the only one put in danger by the information Kim is hiding. How can she defend everyone from enemies who keep growing stronger?

Shrouded Soul (Hidden: Book 3) is the penultimate book in the Hidden series. It is available for Kindle and in paperback.

“Davidson has done it again with Shrouded Soul! If you haven’t read her Hidden series, you are missing out.” Graham Austin-King

“Shrouded Soul is an intense read.” J.L. Mbewe

Book Release: The Adventures of Some Kid

The latest book from the author of The Changeling King, Noor A Jahangir, is coming out on 27th June 2014, in digital and print.

Adventures of Some Kid by Noor A Jahangir

ZACH CAAN isn’t a boy wizard, a super spy or a vampire’s assistant. He doesn’t have any super powers, martial arts training or cool gadgets. In fact there is nothing remarkable about him at all. He’s just some kid.

But when he boards Flight X4573, he embarks on the most unlikely adventure a person can experience in the twenty-first century. Pirates, lost tribes of Aztec warriors and mysterious islands are not usually part of his daily routine. and when it’s all over and his classmates read about him in the national newspapers, they will have great difficulty in believing that it actually happened to him.

You see, nothing ever really happens to Zach Caan. That is, until now.

The Felinity Cover

Felinity – An Anthology by Kristell Ink

Felinity, noun, plural fel-in-ities. 1. The quality of being cat-like. 2. A divine being, a cat.

Grimbold Books is proud to present our first Kristell Inkling, a collection of feline inspired flash fiction stories written by authors from all around the world.
This collection celebrates what we regard as the most important factor when writing: write foremost for pleasure. The stories showcased in this book are full of laughter, grit, odd contraptions and a lot of fur, with a loud purring nod to our beloved genres of science fiction and fantasy.
From A.F.E Smith’s unique twist on Schrödinger’s cat, to Joel Cornah’s world-jumping old queen, from Clare Neilson’s steampunk creation to Tina Closser’s dragon fighting dreaming kitty, these alternate feline worlds are bound to delight sci fi/fantasy readers and cat lovers alike.

I’m planning on doing some overseas travel to do some research for a book.

Do you have plans for a new book? Is this book part of a series?
Yes I do, but what it turns into (Novella to series is all open) I’ll only know when the characters tell what they plan to do.

I’m still writing….

But… It’s MAY!

And MAY is NEW ZEALAND MUSIC MONTH. And, every year I do a NZMM special, where I share Kiwi music daily for an entire month, because I love music, and I’m very proud of our Kiwi musicians.

Anyway, this year, I am trying to win my city a prize of 3 years subsidised Ultrafast Broadband plus a $200,000 start-up grant for new companies to set up in our city… So, I’m going to showcase bands from Dunedin. Some may be new. Most will probably be old. But they’ll all be a little bit special.

So, right now I need to knuckle down to some writing, so here’s my first NZMM #GigatownDunedin Edition video:

Named for the flat (house shared by students) in Dunedin (number 660), Six60 have gone on to become a rather popular New Zealand group. While this song has a modern sound, I still choose to include it in my writing playlist, because, well… what girl doesn’t love to hear “This is forever”?

Mëstar was my favourite local act of the late 90s to early 2000s. I went to many guys, & even danced in the rain while they played on a covered stage in Dunedin’s Octagon.

I picked this song because it comes from the Bailter Space album I have on… wait for it… cassette! I had better get around to grabbing the mp3’s, huh?

Great background writing music!

And I’ve shared this one before, but I’m going to share it again to round out the experience…

First video in reverse? Not sure. I think Supergroove beat Weird Al to it… but I’ll have to check out where this one fits…

Hey all!

I’ve been a bit quiet. All available blogging time has been diverted to… ah… writing.

Now, I could do the easy thing and stick up Lorde’s “Royals”, or any one of her amazing songs. But, you know, this is a forum for me to try and increase my audience, and that’s going quite nicely. So I’m keen to help expose a few other unknowns — including musicians. Because, like I said, I love music (as do many other writers).

It’s quite a lovely song, really…

Who sings it to whom? Llew to Jonas? or Jonas to Llew? Hmm…

As part of my participation with the Blog Tour Group, Bandit Book Bloggers, here’s my post for Susan Finlay‘s book The Outsiders.

While Susan writes mystery and suspense rather than fantasy, I still think my blog readers might be interested in her work, since good fantasy includes some suspense & mystery, anyway!

So, here you go. I hope you find a new favourite book!

In the Shadows: An Outsiders Mystery is the first book in the new mystery series, The Outsiders.

There is a stranger amongst the residents of the cave-riddled village of Reynier, France. Suspicious, they believe there’s only one reason Maurelle Dupre would be lurking in their small village—she’s a gypsy, a thief. But a former Chicago detective turned mystery author, Dave Martin, who happens to be visiting his French grandmother, isn’t so sure about the beautiful stranger when happenstance causes them to meet. He wonders why she seems so frightened and distrustful. He knows he shouldn’t get involved. The last time he trusted a woman in distress, the consequences resulted in the loss of his detective’s shield and his wife. But, as always, the detective in him can’t seem to leave well enough alone. However, what Dave couldn’t know is how persuading Maurelle to reveal herself will ultimately unveil something far worse than mere theft.

In the Shadows is a story of trust, belonging, and murder.

I was tagged twice in the same week (same day) for the My Writing Process Blog Tour, so, I have both Zoe Harris and Clare Davidson to thank and introduce you to (if you haven’t come across these lovely ladies already).

Zoe is an Australian now living in Bærum ( just outside Oslo), Norway. Zoe makes up one half of Grimbold Books, and is the driving force behind Tenebris Books. She also writes her own fiction, and will be my editor when I submit WT to Kristell Ink… Phew!

Clare is a mother, wife, teacher and writer, based in Lancaster, England. She first published the fantasy novel Trinity in 2012, before going on to work on her YA Paranormal series Hidden. The first two books in the series, Reaper’s Rhythm and Broken Bargain are available now.

The next part involves me answering a few questions:

What am I working on?

Well… I’m still working on Warrior’s Touch at the moment, although, I am in the final stages.

WT is the sequel to Healer’s Touch, which was released early in 2013 and enjoyed a quiet first year in the market. Then Kristell Ink did a promo in February this year and, well, it’s done quite well. So, yes, people are waiting on WT. I’m working on it!

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Probably the easiest way to answer this is to look at what my work is like… Continue Reading…
