It’s Alive!

49 Comments

My book–the one I’ve been saying I was going to publish for four years now (didn’t believe me, did you?)–is finally here!

It’s a story I spent months obsessing over, traveled for, went to outrageous lengths for–I sat in the Kingston Via Rail station, taking notes for the description of it; drove around the city looking for the perfect setting for the house in which the story takes place and then I parked my car there and walked halfway back to town to see what it would be like. I stayed in different lodgings – the university where my characters went to school, the house that inspired the one in the book, and a small motel near the train station. I even had a chance to interview a magician. I’ll be posting that interview soon.

But most of all I had a lot of fun writing The Magician’s Curse and its sequel. And I’m almost finished writing the third book. Not sure if there will be more: I’ve toyed with the idea of a prequel.

For now though, I can finally share part of this world I’ve lived in by myself for almost six years. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it. Magic and romance await.

On Kindle:
Amazon US
Amazon Canada
Amazon UK

and Amazon where ever else you are in the world, as well as

The paperback is now available here on Amazon.com.

And I promise to stop the constant spamming now. πŸ™‚

  2. Congrats! And wow, written the sequel, and the third book! On Amazon. Congrats on that too.
    Spamming is okay. You are justifiably proud of your “baby” — giving birth after a gestation of six years is a very momentous occasion. So happy for you!

          • No doubt. Good that you could experience the places you used in your novel. Makes, I’m sure, for a more authentic read.

            • I love being able to go to a place in a book – I’ve been to New Orleans to visit the locations of Ann Rice’s novels. And yes, it made them come alive for me. It’s the main reason I wrote my book this way. πŸ™‚

              • That’s interesting. I’ve never visited a place, I don’t think, with a specific author in mind, though walks through London, England brought certain authors and poets to mind — from past centuries and the present.
                That’s exciting you got to visit New Orleans, and were able to translate that literature tourism (I won’t say voyeurism) into researching/experiencing your book. Kingston is a wonderful place to do that in!
                I write about fictional places that exist only in my mind. Easy to visit, and cheap on the budget, but hard to fully replicate outside of my imagination.

              • I find being able to see my inspiration up close helps me bring my story to life. If I can’t do that, pictures often work. πŸ™‚
