Book Review: Heka and the Colour Thief – Local Talent at its finest!

I was fortunate to attend the first Readers and Writers Festival in January, where I picked up this novelette by a local author.

Please pop over to my site to read the full review.

Two posts in one week! Editing, and Publishing

I completely forgot to share the link to my post on editing last Sunday, so this week you get two posts!

First: Editing: Enrich your story by showing, not telling

And Second: Publishing in South Africa and Abroad: Do I need an ISBN and where do I get it?

Have fun!

Published: “Beneath the Wax” by Nthato Morakabi

 

In October, I was thrilled to publish Beneath the Wax, the first novella in Nthato Morakabi’s sci-fi horror series! With the latter half of 2018 proving to be a very busy year, the publication of this book ranks as one of my highlights!

Beneath the Wax 03 Kindle Cover 01

With a gorgeous cover design by Nico Venter (who is currently working on the artwork for Jozi Flash 2018 – YAY!), and exceptional story-telling by Nthato, Beneath the Wax is a perfect Christmas gift for fans of horror and sci-fi.

 

1723: Constantine Bourgeois is a man of many secrets. Artisan by day, killer by night, he turns his victims into wax figures for his shop.
2045: Richard Baines works for the renowned Anthony Garfield Historical Museum. His mundane existence is a stark counterpoint to his fascination with serial killers and science fiction.
Constantine’s nightmares drive him to undertake a journey to uncover a long-forgotten secret. Richard’s research uncovers a company secret and the mystery of Madame Bourgeois.
Two men, two timelines, and truths that will only be revealed when they look Beneath the Wax

Blog Tour Promo: “Barnabas Tew and the Case of the Nine Worlds” by Columbkill Noonan

I’ve just started a new full time job, so reviews are on hold for the moment, but I’m still participating in tours hosted by Rachel’s Random Resources with some promo posts. This is a sequel to the first Barnabas Tew novel, and I can’t wait to dive into them!

Hold your flying horses!
Barnabas and Wilfred, two earnest but bumbling Victorian detectives, travel through the Nine Worlds of Norse mythology, trying to stave off the impending end of the world, an event which the locals call “Ragnarok”. This time around, however, the intrepid twosome has some help: a brave Viking seer named Brynhild and her flying horse.
Can the two plucky detectives and the fearsome Brynhild outwit those who would bring about Ragnarok? Will they survive the harsh conditions and terrifying creatures of the Norse afterlife? Will they save the world…again?

As with the first novel, this book just appeals on so many levels. Norse mythology is a personal favourite for me, so I can’t wait to see how Barnabas experiences it after his adventures in the Egyptian underworld!

Purchase the novel on Amazon US or Amazon UK.
