A much overdue update

Posted by on Jun 3, 2014 in Author Update, Exclusive Content, Featured, Legends of Marithia (Book 1) - Graphic Novel, Legends of Marithia (Book 1) Uncut and Extended, Legends of Marithia 3, Legends of Marithia Series, Legends of Marithia: Darkness Rising (Book 2), Legends of Marithia: Prophecies Awakening, Mind Jacked | 0 comments

Greetings to all Legends of Marithia fans!

It’s been quite some time, and as I’m getting my head above water of dealing with various things, I figured it’s time for an update.

Believe me when I say that things have been busy, and the best news of all is that I’ve kicked off the Graphic Novel project! Details are below, but it’s crowd-funded (to pay for the artists’ work only), and there are some great rewards on offer. As I have largely neglected this blog, I will try to post updates and blog entries more often.

So, what’s been going on, and where are things at?

The rewrite for this has finished a while ago, and the book is available on Amazon, online stores, and all bookstores (you may need to order in the latest edition, and stockists may vary). This is going to be the final edition of the book, save any editorial fixes.

Writing journey – Graphic Novel stalled and great progress on books

Posted by on Jan 6, 2014 in Featured, General, Legends of Marithia (Book 1) Uncut and Extended | 0 comments

A quick note. I have some good news and some bad news in the world of Marithia.

Unfortunately, the graphic novel is not going ahead for Legends of Marithia. This is partly due to the artist being unavailable, and also due to not having funds to get this done. If/when this changes, I will let you all know.

The good news is that I finished the rewrite of Legends of Marithia: Book 1, and just like all of my books, it has been updated and published through Amazon Createspace, and is available now, on both paperback and kindle.

You can read a preview of the new edition here, and the novel is already available. My next target is to rewrite Legends of Marithia : Book 2, into a 2014 edition.

Great things are to come, and as always, I appreciate the support of my fans and trust you enjoy the journey to Marithia

My Journey – Writing Legends 3, Chapter Previews, Movie Teaser, and Graphic Novel

Posted by on Aug 7, 2013 in Author Update, Featured, Legends of Marithia 3, Legends of Marithia Series, Mind Jacked | 0 comments

Greetings to my readers (I know you’re out there, right? Right? – echoes of silence)

You’d have hopefully seen my last blog that talk about an upcoming Hollywood style movie trailer, right? If not, it’s here

Let me give you a bit of an idea of what’s been going on, where things are at, some exciting new developments and things that I’ve learned along the way.

It’s been a bit of a crazy time for me, with many projects on the go at the same time and busy times at work (yes, I work full-time as well as work on my writing projects). I guess you could say that I’m learning to juggle, and although we drop a ball here and there… the idea is to keep going.

Legends of Marithia 3

The book is shaping nicely, and after a complete rewrite it is only down to writing the remaining plotted chapters and finalising the book. I can tell you that there will be an epic plot twist that I expect none of you would have seen coming, but everything from Legends 1-3 will suddenly make a lot more sense. I can’t express just how much everything will have not been as it seems. It sounds cliché, but for those of you who have stuck with the series… it will be far more rewarding. Expect a ton of action, adventure, getting to know your characters on a deeper level, and epic surprises along the way.

There will definitely be a Legends of Marithia 4!

Major News: Legends of Marithia movie teaser begins filming soon

Posted by on Jul 10, 2013 in Author Update, Exclusive Content, Featured, Legends of Marithia (Book 1) Uncut and Extended, Legends of Marithia Series | 2 comments

Greetings to all Marithia fans!

I haven’t updated the blog in a while, as I have been working crazy hard on Legends of Marithia 3, and building up a path for Legends of Marithia to be made into a feature film or TV Series.

The good news is, that I am working with a Director/Producer from Boston, USA: Farzad Wafapoor.

An initial teaser script has been written, is being finalised, and filming of the Hollywood style movie teaser begins soon. Yes, the teaser is being filmed, and you will see it in the near future.

Tuneup Media v2.4 review and comparison with Rinse my Music (EDIT note for v3)

Posted by on Jun 27, 2013 in General, Technology | 7 comments

This may seem a bit odd, that I am reviewing music library cleaning software as an author. However, for the many of us who write books, we also like to listen to music. Personally, I write my books on my bus trips to and from work, on an iPad (I know, the horror, right?), but music goes hand in hand to get me in the mood.

I happy to be a music lover with an extensive collection of songs that I have refined over the years.

Without digressing too much, allow me to share the horror story of when I tried a competitor to Tuneup Media, Rinse my music.

Now, I love the idea of set and forget. I’m busy doing many things, so having software that promises to clean up my collection, and I can be busy doing other things, definitely appealed to me. I thought, I will set this thing to a surety level of 80% and hit RINSE.
