Reviewers urgently needed! 

It’s an eternal problem for authors – how to get people to review your books! Most people just don’t realise what a difference it makes. 

Now I have three books out, it’s even harder – if I want someone to review book three, I’m asking them to read three whole novels! I have 17 reviews for The Lost Heirs, 4 for The Second Stone and none yet for The King’s Chamber. 

So, if anyone out there would be willing to read and post reviews for the trilogy, I’ll love you forever 😁 

I can send the books in a pdf format, or send an Amazon gift card so you can buy the kindle edition, or even post you a paperback copy if you prefer?

Thanks! From a struggling author xx 

 

And time marches on…

It’s been an amazing year – in the last twelve months I’ve hit the ‘publish now’ button three times… and the series is complete!

The Eshla Adventures were supposed to be for my son – just four when I began the first book – but lack of confidence stopped me from finishing that book for twelve years! I don’t know what changed, but I’m, glad it did; writing Eric’s adventures in Eshla have seen me through a difficult year career wise and shown me what I really want to do with my life.

The next project is already well underway – a cosy (or cozy for US readers) murder mystery set in the 1920’s – but meantime, here are the links to the Eshla Adventures. If you would be willing to read them and write a review, please get in touch through the contact form and I will send a copy.

Many thanks x

Book 1 – The Lost Heirs

The adventures begin, as Eric Grayson – an ordinary fourteen year old schoolboy – discovers Eshla and begins a quest to help Prince Joel rescue his trapped brothers. Things get complicated when the villain who imprisoned them turns out to be closer to home than Eric expected, and the location of the missing key is lost in time!

Armed with friendship, bravery and a fluffy blue alien creature from Eshla, Eric rises to the challenge!

Book 2 – The Second Stone

In the second installment, the quest continues with Eric, Corbin, Rose and Lydia trying to release the next prince from the Bel-Arayba Cave. The four friends have some tough decisions to make while looking for the second stone in 1842, and things are getting pretty tricky in their own time too, as Lowick Bradwar, masquerading as their head teacher, steps up his plans to get back to Eshla.

Meanwhile in Eshla itself, things are far from peaceful, as the malicious Galed continues her campaign against the Arwain family.

Book 3 – The King’s Chamber

Time is running out for Eric and his friends to release the lost heirs of Eshla! With the final prince, and true King of Eshla, still trapped within his icy blue chamber, the lost stone must be found before Lowick Bradwar can return to wreak havoc.

Eric, Corbin, Rose and Lydia (and not forgetting Espog) find themselves mingling with Jane Austen’s polite society in 1795, whilst desperately hunting for the missing key. As they get caught up in the lives of people from the past, the four find themselves beginning to consider their own options, and how Eshla has changed their futures forever.

Mailing list?

I have a quick question for any other indie authors out there: do you keep a list of email addresses for people interested in your book? I keep reading articles that mention the importance of having a mailing list, but how do you develop such a list? And don’t people mind if you keep sending them emails?!

As ever, I’d appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

Amazon reviewers have stated:

“The world of Eshla is a like an entertaining dream. You know the kind, you wake up only to be disappointed that it’s no longer there”

“So fascinated was I with the Eshla world beautifully created by the author, that I completely lost track of time and like the main protagonist, 14 year old Eric, found myself swept into a another world full of magical adventures.”

“The writing reminded me of Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia and even Dr. Seuss.”

“The parallel world is an exotic and interesting steampunk invention, but the part that really grabbed me was the travel back to 1927.”

“Has all the wonderful elements of great fiction authors who have trod this path before…. JK Rowlings & Enid Blyton move aside!”
