Huge Special Discount on Desolation
The Keystone Bone Trilogy: Book 1
My author friend had a very nice offer before Christmas, so I thought I would stuff it into my newsletter stocking for all of you.
It's a huge novel at 100,000 plus words.
Just as Aea had finally found happiness in her troubled life, everything starts to fall apart. When she discovers that her sister, Isota, is still alive, Aea ventures to save her, well aware that every Duian who leaves the forest realm of Thaduin will inevitably catch a deadly disease, the Field Blight. Aea finds herself in a race against time.
Arkum’Sul really wants nothing but to be left alone. Being the sole survivor of his race, and the son of a dragon god, makes such desires difficult to fulfill.
Meanwhile, Ayida, another Duian, resides in the Bronze Tower, far north of Thaduin, where she has grown to become a powerful spellcaster. However, it requires all of her skills to heal herself of the Field Blight daily. This place is the heart of the Magio Order, a dominant organization of female magic-wielders, where Ayida has tried for decades to ascend from Apprentice to the rank of Sienna… and failed every time. As she makes another attempt, all goes horribly wrong.
Will the world of Erisdün survive as ancient myths and reality become one?
“Desolation” is the first book in the fantasy trilogy, “The Keystone Bone”. It’s not for the faint-hearted, but if you like fast-paced fantasy, with dragons, demons, and magic, then you will love “Desolation”.

Why Fantasy?Even as young boys my brother and I invented games filled with rules and setting. There was always a plot and specific purpose, set in a made-up universe that governed what you could and could not do. That was how we liked it; making it up as we went was never for us. To be honest, I guess this is the origin of my passion for fantasy; apart from the fact that I like dragons… strange places… and maps… well, I just love fantasy. Okay?
Fantasy allows me to develop my own world, entirely, and come up with rules for it. Immersing myself into it, I can relive elements of what I so loved when playing with my brother in my parents backyard. A fantastic realm, forming itself before my eyes. It is great.
By now, I have spend decades developing my skills in worldbuilding and I have promised myself to never deviate from a path of learning. As Hemmingway said, “We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” I believe this to be very solid advice and if we all apply such thinking to all aspects of our lives, the real world can be as great as the imaginary one.
My road to authorshipI have always loved creating and I suppose that if I was only allowed to choose two words to describe myself they would be, “Focused ambition.” Yet, the art of writing was something that lived a quiet life, in the back of my mind, for many years. It was a dormant desire and, like so many of our dreams, it was placed on a list of things to do later; you know, when time would allow it. And there I left it. Half-forgotten. For a long time.
I have a Finnish sauna to thank for eventually picking it up from that dusted corner and beginning to pour my focused ambition over it. Every summer my wife, two boys and I go to Finland and spend a couple of weeks trying to do as little as possible. In that cottage it is all about slowing down and recharging our batteries. The atmosphere is perfect for it. What it was exactly that sparked my authorship I cannot say for sure – maybe it was just slowing down that gave another perspective? Maybe I was just ready for it? Whatever it was, I am ever thankful that it happened when it did back in 2015. Why wait when you can act today?
To me, good fiction is memorable and entertaining; if I can inject enjoyment and inspiration into just a single person’s life by my creations, then that is all the reward I require for my efforts.

Including the two women he loves.
A rebel, a red-haired devil and a Moon Girl battle to save the world – or tear it apart.

What is something you’ve lied about?
Firstly – thanks for having me on your site today!
I don’t lie. Not because I’m Little Miss Perfect (or as a T-shirt I wore as a kid read: ‘Nobody’s Perfect’…then on the back, ‘My name’s Nobody’). But because I can’t lie. I mean I have a tongue. And lips… So physically I can. But I am so staggeringly bad at lying that I gave it up when I was tiny. It’s excruciating.
In Rebel Vampires my new fantasy series – both Blood Shackles and the first book in the series Blood Dragons – Light struggles with lies and conspiracies when he’s honest and loyal. And always keeps his promises. He’s an anti-hero, a rebel loner, who struggles in his redemptive journey to blood abstain, love and find family. But lying?
‘It’s our natural defence because either everyone must tell the truth or everyone must lie. Now I’d found myself in a land of falsehood and it was me with the serious design flaw.’

Truth and lies: the ones we tell to others and ourselves. Society’s and humanity’s. Are central to Blood Shackles.
Who is the last person you hugged?
Easy this – my son. He doesn’t like it though – doing that teenage shrug of get off Mum… I’m a very huggy person. But I know the boundaries. Those bubbles we all have around us. Some people allow the single kiss. Others two. Some people go in for the full on hug. Others only the handshake, especially here in England… Sorry, stereotype alert.
The ability to have that though – the sensory touch and feel – is essential. To love and family. It’s one of the things, which is stripped from the Blood Lifers – like the layers of an onion – in Blood Shackles, when they’re reduced to slaves. The hunters become the hunted. Like Taken. But with vampires. Even down to their senses. To the ability to touch. Or feel.
That’s why the Blood Lifers fight back by finding their own families in their bondage. Their own ways to love. To feel. Because we gain our sense of home not from bricks and mortar but from that single hug. Even if your kids shrug your off!
What are you reading now?
The Magicians by Lev Grossman. Fantasy for grownups. Or kids, who have grown up… Like the best of urban fantasy, it looks at magic and sees how it would REALLY work in our world. Where people aren’t perfect. Where emotions are real. Where magic wands can’t fix everything. And it’s powerful because of it.
Rebel Vampires - even though there’s a hidden, paranormal world beneath our own – is still set emotionally very much in the real world. People (and vampires) make bad choices and mistakes. Because that’s life. Real life.
The daughter of the man, who has enslaved Light (Grayse) keeps him in one side of London. The human side. But Light’s London is the darker side. The side the tourists don’t see – and that’s when your eyes are truly open to the world.
‘Of course that suited me just fine because this was still your London. I wanted to explore its other face: the dark and the glory.’

How do you come up with the titles to your books?
Two most important parts of a book? And I’m not counting the words because granted they’re the Soul… Book cover and title.
I find titles the hardest. Seriously. Blood, sweat and tears. I can’t decide on a title until after the book is fully planned out. Often until the book is entirely written.
With Rebel Vampires the titles get to the true heart of each book.
Blood – My vampires are called Blood Lifers. They’re a real species – the same as gorillas – or humans. Evolved alongside us, as the apex predator. But camouflaged and hidden. Up until now. They call humans First Lifers. They see being elected (or Authored) into Blood Life, as evolution.
The second word in each book in the series then gets to the heart of that book.
Blood Dragons – how they’re evolved and no, it’s not mythical dragons. The answer to this sets up the thriller plot, which threatens the world and survival of both species. Light has to risk his love and life to try and save them all – and redeem himself.
Blood Shackles – how the Blood Lifers have been defanged and enslaved. The why, how and the conspiracy behind it? You’ll have to read the book…
Share your dream cast for your book.
So dangerous. Creating a dream cast… The one rule of Writing Club? Don’t create a dream cast!
I like readers to be able to imagine the character however they want. So I’m only going to give one and if he doesn’t fit, feel free to rip the image up and fit your own in. So mine is for Light alone and he’s a mix of two actors from the 1950s and 1960s – Michael Caine when he was young (think Alfie), combined with James Dean of Rebel without a Cause. One gives the voice and attitude, the other the look. Although to finish it off I should add Marlon Brando in The Wild Ones for the leather and motorbike. Can I have all three? Although Light would object. There’s no one like him. He’s unique. ‘My name is Light.’
