As most of you will know, my writing had to take a bit of a back seat due to some turbulence in my private life. I have recently had an operation, but am healing nicely. My mother-in-law is out of hospital and recovering well. Unfortunately, my father-in-law passed away after being in ICU for nine weeks. All in all, it has been a very trying time and our family is slowly learning to live with the new situation. So, after barely writing at all during those trying weeks, I can
Can you believe it is already June? Half the year is almost gone and I ask myself: what have I accomplished? Looking back, the first thing that comes to mind is that I have only published one book so far this year. Then, I am reminded of all the other things I have done this year, such as the 200,000 words I have already written; the 30 different swag designs I have created; the Twitter ads; the blog tours; the fairs and markets. It has been a busy year and despite what life

New Releases There are going to be some amazing new books out soon by some really talented authors. MARITRICIDE by Jo-Anne Joseph - 30 April 2018 How far would you go to protect your loved ones?
What would be the ultimate sacrifice?

Coming soon! It's April 8 and I am supposed to release book 3 of the Elemental Trilogy this month. *Gasps* No, I am not ready. Epic fantasy can take its time and with a manuscript of over 180,000 words, even my editor is dreading it. But, it will go through to my beta readers soon. I am still looking for two more so, if you are interested, keep an eye on my FB page - the announcement will be made soon. For those of you who haven't read Elemental Rising and Elemental Betrayal
Last weekend was a bit of a train wreck. I spent the entire two days in bed, unable to even move, let alone write or do any other authorly things. No newsletter, no blog, no teasers and such for the week to come. I felt terrible, but luckily I have an amazing author friend who told me my fans would understand if I took a week off in order to feel better. So, by Wednesday, I was almost feeling myself again and, after five days of not writing, I finally managed to put down a fe
Well, this has certainly been an exciting weekend! Sian and I, the Alternative Authors, attended "A Viking Thing" that was hosted by AlterEgos Events at La Vue Guest Lodge in Muldersdrift. It was a misty morning when the Alternative Authors docked their long boats at La Vue Guest Lodge. Situated between breakfast and dessert, we prepared ourselves for a feast to rival all feasts, a festival that would be spoken about for ages to come. We, the wise women who scribe tomes, woul
