I have been less than productive of late and just haven’t felt like working on any of my books. I am trying to finish off Exiles as that is the first of the phase #0 books, but I am just getting nowhere. In a fit of boredom I have been trying out some 3D Art and the following images are just my playing around.
The manuscript that inspired these images is far from complete and I was hoping to have finished it by now, however, depression is a nasty condition and I just constantly feel down about my lack of artistic ability to get things from brain to paper.
I have a few days leave and hope it will help me out.
I also have a meeting with another Writer soon called Liz Hill and am looking forward to that. For the next few days I will be down in Windsor (UK) so keep a look out for a bloke with a black hoody with a large white skull on the back and the slogan “Deploy, Dominate, Disappear.”
That is all for now.
See you in port soon my fellow Rouges and Airship Captains.
Originally Dragon Hunt started off as a short story about one point in James Purcell’s life, but after I published the story on Amazon I realised that something didn’t feel right about it,the whole point was to Introduce the Black and Silver dragons into the story line, but it didn’t quite fit the job.
I pulled the short out and started to research the background and realised that I hadn’t explained how they got there and why they really was there. I also had a few other questions also crop up, Why is the silver back fox around and how did the professor know that the dragons were here.
It’s hard to explain things without spoilers, but I believe that those who read the original may be surprised to connections growing in the backgrond and how a certain person keeps inserting herself into these stories in an attempt to turn the fate towards the prophecy of light.
Dragon Hunt is the first side novel to be set around the dragons, the next will be Dragon Rider but won’t be due till late 2016/early 2017
I still haven’t got “The end” fit for iTunes yet, but a short story that has been gathering dust on my Hard drive is now finished and in the process of getting published on iTunes (Amazon is coming, i promise)
Pumpkin Dragons started off as a little forum story and grew but after a while (finished the first draft) it was left to gather dust.
I spent the weekend cleaning it up and now I can call it finished. getting it up on iBooks was a bit of a chore but now my side of the publish is sorted out, the Ibooks side was easy to sort.
NaNoCamp is around the corner and I contemplated not taking part as I have 3 books to edit already but boredom is getting the better of me. I have loads of plots and story’s covering several genera’s but lacking in the attention to concentrate on them.
These are the idea’s
Aether Shadow Part 2 Now the Captain of the airship Aether Shadow, Shelly Lee now has to lead her crew on an adventure in this new world however, Hot on her heals is another airship captain determined to take the ship and crew for her own means. With the return of her former shipmate, The Elf Queen Issabella and the support of the french and Japanese forces in this world, can she save her crew?
Rise of the Gray Wolf. What happened to James Purcell, the former captain of the Airship Aether Shadow and do they really want what has returned to be part of there lives?
The Dragon Rider. After becoming trapped in the Vail and rescued by the little girl know as Louise, the two escape and return to there world of the living that has moved on without them. Louise is actually a dragon that can assume human form and has taught mac how to use the powers of the Vail. Now able to use magic in a form better suited to his ability’s, Mac and Louise return across the worlds of England and Albion in search of people from there past. Can they make a new life for them or will they become part of the coming war.
The Moon Druid. Media Studies Student Jessica has always known there is something special about her. Plagued with a strange illness that causes her to go from a complete lack of energy one day to being like a hyperactive child another day. She is drawn to a stranger who walks into the shop she works in, he has an alternative motive and has tried to hide from the world for his crimes. What is the connection between them and can she find out the answer to her illness.
Iconian the Meddler. For over two hundred years the dragons have remained hidden from the world but when his mate leave for self imposed exile even is love for the queen cannot hold him back. Will he finds his partner and discover what she has been doing in the absence.
One of the things that a lot of people struggle with and something I have been struggling with since I started NaNoWriMo 2013 was thinking up a title. I used the name Mythobiology because it was supposed to be heavy with mythical animals. However, as it is part of a Steampunk series and most of the book is about his life up to becoming the captain of an airship.
I feel that my book has now lost it’s identity and the title now no longer fits. I have been stewing over this for a few days now but until I start the editing and rewriting work then it’s not going to change.
On a side note, I have started to work on my Fantasy series, Return of the dragons.
The series follows each individual member of a group of hero’s without crossing the same grounds. After a civil war that nearly wiped out the dragons, the survivors went into hiding and man kind has spread across the land. The instigators of this civil war, the black dragons have started to stir and are intent on bringing all the species into this new war. How will each member deal with there pasts in order to come together and save the future.
