A group of shapeshifters have left their village and gone rogue.
JARMIL: He's the leader. Cold, hard and ruthless. He thinks he's superior to all other beings, and rules by intimidation.
KATSUO: Angry and disillusioned, he left with Jarmil to escape his violent father, but he's discontented with the way things are now.
Winner of Reader's Favorite 5 Star award.
Enjoy meeting the pack, and let me know who your favourite is.

Has anybody said those words to you - "You can't do it/that." How did they make you feel? Because after all, what they're really saying is that you're not capable of doing it. Did it make you stubborn, determined to do it to prove them wrong? Well, that's good. But what about if you believed those words? Were they just another statement in a long line of put downs that chipped away at your self confidence? Think how that would feel.
What can be done? You can grow a thick skin and not believe them, but seriously, how likely is it that that's really going to help? I know, not going to happen, is it?
What else then?
How about changing just one letter and apostrophe?
You Can Do It.
Look at the difference taking those out make. Now a negative statement is a positive one.
There will always be some things that people can't do, but we have to try for ourselves first. We don't need someone else telling us that we can't do it, but someone giving us encouragement and telling us we can, that's worth much more than stubborn determination.
So be sure to say "You can do it" to someone today or if it is yourself that needs telling "I can do it." And you can - I believe it you.
Have a wonderful and positive day,

I'd like to give you the chance to escape from reality and into the world of elementals and shape shifters. I've chosen this chapter because it is set on Halloween night - appropriate I thought!

Today I'd like to introduce you to Battle for the Throne by E.J.Willis.
Tuesday, 15 September 2015
Today it is my pleasure to bring you the new cover for The Order of the Four Sons. The book is due to be published on the 25th September 2015.
Enter the world of the Order. For centuries, two ancient, magical sects, the Order of the Four Sons of Horus and Starry Wisdom, have battled for possession of the sacred, powerful Staff of Solomon. Whoever possesses the staff can open doors to other dimensions—or rip open the very fabric of existence. The staff was broken into pieces and scattered across the cosmos. Now, a member of the Order, Fernando Rios, has disappeared in a small Missouri town. When a team is sent to investigate, they discover that Rios was close to finding one of the lost segments. The problem is, he wasn’t the only one. The Order of the Four Sons by Coyote Kishpaugh and Lauren Scharhag is a classic tale of good versus evil. An epic, magical journey of fantasy and adventure. Join members of the team, Colonel JD Garnett, novice mage Kate West, Detective Ryan Murphy, scholar Doug Grigori, and field techs Bill Welsh and Cecil Morgan, as they race to stop evil from destroying not just Earth, but a myriad of worlds. And life as we know it.

Today I'm letting Jeremy Breitenbach take over my blog. Over to you Jeremy.
My name is Jeremy Breitenbach. I am legally blind with cerebral palsy. I use Braille. I've been writing since I was 15. I started out with writing original stories based off of The Legend of Zelda and original stories based off a '90's cartoon I love called Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, but in the years since I stopped writing the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog stories, but still continued to write The Legend of Zelda stories. I evetually created an original series based on The Legend of Zelda consisting of 3 books so far. I also began writing my own original stories based on the anime Dragon Ball Z (which I'm a HUGE fan of); so far writing 3 original Dragon Ball Z stories. In 2009, I started writing my first real book; a book for adults entitled The Gateway finishing it in 2011. While writing that I began writing children's books. I've written four (so far). Those books being: The Abduction of Benjamin Williams, My Dog George, Tim's Story (which I am still working on and will be the next book I publish), and Lost in Wisconsin. I also wrote a how-to book entitled How To Read and Write Braille. In 2014, I came across Author Ronnie C. Dawson, CEO and founder of Broken Bars Publishing and told him about myself and all 6 of my books. I e-mailed him The Gateway, and long story short I published it through them. It's available on Broken Bars Publishing's website, Amazon in paperback and Kindle, and Barns and Noble's website for Nook. Here's what all 6 of my books are about - How To Read and Write Braille: details how to read and write Braille, The Gateway: a physicist opens a gateway on a planet within another dimension which leads to an alien invasion; violence and strong language, The Abduction of Benjamin Williams: a family gets betrayed by a neighbor they thought they could trust, My Dog George: a boy's dog runs away, Tim's Story: A boy becomes an orphan after his parents are killed in a tragic car crash. (None of the characters in this book are based on actual people. The basis for this book was inspired by the story told in Contemporary Christian Music artist Steven Curtis Chapman's song "When Love Takes You In", and Tim's red hair was inspired by the hair color of the orphan boy in Steven Curtis Chapman's song "All I Really Want".), and Lost in Wisconsin: a boy gets separated from his parents while they are going on vacation, and due to his dyslexia boards the wrong plane. Excerpts from all 6 of these books can be found under the "Notes" tab of both my official Facebook page and my personal timeline (for those that wish to "Follow" me).
Here's what the books in my original The Legend of Zelda series are about - The Hyrulean Civil War: The Saga of King Link, Book 1 (a civil war breaks out in Hyrule), The Rezlorian Empire: The Saga of King Link, Book 2 (an emperor wants to conquer Hyrule), and The Great Moblin Invasion: The Saga of King Link, Book 3 (the King of the Moblins plans to invade the Upper World). Here's what my Dragon Ball Z original stories are about - The Return of King Piccolo (King Piccolo returns to Earth to seek revenge on Goku), Turles' Revenge (Several years after his defeat, Turles escapes from Hell in another attempt at taking over the Earth), and The Return of Garlic Jr. (The shattering of dimensions caused by Janemba destroys the barrier which separates the Dead Zone from Earth's dimension once again releasing Garlic Jr). Excerpts from The Legend of Zelda original series and my original Dragon Ball Z stories can only be found under the "Notes" tab of my personal timeline. (They will not be put into Notes on my official Facebook page. So if you are interested in reading any of these particular stories feel free to "Follow" me.)

Janalya has gone live and to celebrate its release I'm holding a live event on Facebook.
There are interviews to be read and the opportunity to ask questions and chat with me, as well as a sneak peek at the first review of the book.
You're all welcome to join me/us.
Look forward to seeing you there
Tuesday, 18 August 2015
At last, I can present Janalya to you, and you can enjoy the story as much as I do - well, I hope you will.
I started this story a long time ago. When I originally had my idea for it, my main character was going to be a witch that could control the weather, then I got Beautiful Creatures out of the library and thought "Uh Oh - that's kinda been done already ."
So I decided to make Janalya have power over my favourite element - the wind. Nothing I like better than a windy day, especially if I'm by the sea or on the edge of a cliff. Add some more elementals to even things out and you have the supporting teenage characters.
Now for the 'bad' to act against Janalya. Shape shifters seemed like an obvious choice to me, but not wolves. Don't get me wrong, I like wolves, but, apart from the fact that there are lots of books with shape shifting wolves in them, I had already used them in a short story for the Authors For Charity book, Paranormal Love. So, I needed something else - and what better than panthers? I love panthers. They're so mysterious, sleek and powerful - they make great shape shifters.
Before I go, I want to say Thank You to the lovely Iida Loiske to agreeing to pose for my cover.

Agony of Tears - Marie Godley
Friday, 3 July 2015
We had lunch at our favourite stopping place en-route, an old coach house.
We drove through most types of weather, leaving in sunshine, going through light to heavy rain and heavy mist, luckily we avoided storms and snow.
Had a walk round the town (and a cuppa in a café), went down to the harbour to say hello to the sea and ships, including the navy.
On our way back, we visited Lanhydrock, a brilliant Victorian house with kitchens and servants quarters laid out as if everybody had just stepped out for a moment.
Now we're home, it's time to get back to editing and getting Janalya ready for publishing.
Thanks for reading about our mini adventure.
Monday, 4 May 2015
How are you all? I've been busy so this is a quick update before I head back to it.
I've decided to publish Janalya myself so get ready to meet his guy.
And I'm also working on a new story. These things are involved.
So much going on in my head that it might possibly explode, although I hope not because that will be painful and messy.
So forgive the short post and I'll see you all again next month.

Today I've invited Chris Hill along to chat about writing and his new book.
Thanks for inviting me along to your blog Marie, it’s a pleasure to be here!
Let's great straight in with some questions: When did you start writing?
I’d say I started writing after a fashion in my early teens - just
scraps in school exercise books and so on. I gradually became more serious
about it until I developed to the point where I was producing proper short
stories which were good enough to enter into competitions and I entered lots of
those over time. I lost way more than I won of course but it was a great way of
practicing as a writer. After that I moved on to novels though I had three
finished before I managed to find a publisher for my first one.
You can find me on my website here http://www.chrishillauthor.co.uk
My twitter handle is @ChilledCh
And what about your book?
Thanks for your time Chris, I'm sure the readers will enjoy your book.
Chris Hill- Bio

Jennifer Loiske was going to come in and talk to me today, but it seems she's busy wrestling with a storyline, so she's sent Shannon and Ian instead. Now bear with us because Shannon is a bit upset, I'm sure Ian will calm her down though.
