Wild Girl (The Wolfling Saga) Book 3 Release Date

As many as you may have noticed, the third instalment of the Wolfling saga has missed its release date of 'late 2015'.
I have been receiving a lot of emails regarding when this final book in the saga will be released.

Unfortunately I am suffering from a bit of writer's block, and have not yet finished the third book. Although I know what is going to happen in this story, nothing I write seems to be worthy.

I'm awfully sorry to anyone who is eagerly awaiting the final conclusion to the series. Just know I am trying to make it perfect for you! I'm trying very hard to get motivated and inspired.

At this stage there is no release date for Wild Girl. I am HOPING mid-2016, but this is not set in stone.

Please know that I'm trying me best to write whilst still working full-time as a Web Designer. Not only that but I recently relocated internationally, which took a lot of planning!

'Alpha Girl' Novel re-written from Mr.Thomas Stone's point-of-view. Yay or Nay?


What do you think? Is this kind of thing overdone? (What with E.L James and Stephenie Meyer doing the same thing) Re-writing a story and switching from the heroine’s point of view, to the hero to gain an insight into a previously unknown point-of-view. Whilst many consider this ‘lazy-writing’, I feel that telling the story from Tom’s perspective could really give interesting insight into his thoughts and feelings.

The guilt he feels when he is attracted to a student, the fear in his heart from falling for her. So many new, raw emotions that I want to explore!

 

So, let me know. Would you read it?

New Book Cover for 'The Fire Mage Trilogy'

Hello everyone!
Yes, I know it's been at least 10-11 months since I last made a blog post, and I am so sorry. I've been travelling Europe and concentrating on my freelancing this past year. I am very keen to get back into writing to finish 'Wild Girl' (The Wolfling Saga) and my psychological thriller 'Five.' I've been getting countless emails asking about these upcoming novels. I can't give you a certain date just yet, but please know that I am working on it!

In the meantime, the Fire Mage Trilogy book covers needed a bit of a refresh. The covers have been the same for a while now, and as a graphic designer, I like to stay ahead of the trends!
That is why I am presenting to you, the brand new book covers for Frost Arch, Flamethroat, and Falling Ashes!

What do you think of the new look? Let me know in the comments below!
