Supporting Indie Authors

I had a great night at Little Gnome book shop last weekend where I attended their ‘Indie Author Day’. It was a great event showcasing work from a number of independent authors. There were guest speakers, free nibbles, free beer, free wine and free pizza, all laid on by the wonderful Bel. There were a number of budding authors in the crowd, gleaning inspiration and advice. I also found a new fan – big shout out to Paul, thanks for supporting me by buying my book. I also have to give a massive shout out to Bel for her support and efforts in putting this event together.

Why not show your support by reading a book from an independent author.

When Opportunity Knocks.

Hello Readers and Carpe Diem!

That’s right, I’m using that term most often associated with the Dead Poets’ society – “Seize the day”. When opportunity knocks, sometimes you’ve just got to jump on board and ride it through the field of hopes and dreams. Which brings me to my point… I will be making an appearance at Little Gnome Bookshop in Wynnum tomorrow for their Indie Author Day. I know it is short notice, but originally, I wanted to attend this event and I wasn’t able to make it. Now the stars aligned and I have the opportunity to be there. So, I’m going to take advantage of it. If you are in the neighbourhood, why not drop in… and, if your there to purchase a copy of one of my books, I’ll be happy to sign it for you. For those that can’t make it along, I hope you have a great weekend. And remember, don’t let those opportunities pass you by!

My Name in Books, Tag – Allan.

I saw this book tag on the blog Thrice Read. At the end of her post, Caitlynn said to go ahead and give it a go. I have never done a book tag before, so I thought I would give it a go. I assume they need to be books you have actually read… So here are some from me:

A – Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb

L – Last Argument of Kings by Joe Abercrombie

L – (The) Lascars Dagger by Glenda Larke

A – Assassin’s Quest by Robin Hobb

N – Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

And that’s it. Can you book tag your name?

Taking a Break and Re-charging (Part 2)

Hello Readers,

I find myself with a little spare time on my last night in Brussels, and as I promised you all some photos of France, I thought I would use the time to add some (and a few from Belgium too). Being a fantasy author, I like to take photos of medieval buildings and the like for reference material. So here are a few of my favourites:-

France: Notre Dame (inside and outside) and Sacre Coeur (at the top of the hill up the many steps).

Belgium: a selection of photos from Brussels (Grand Place), Ghent and Bruges.

And finally, a picture of J.K. Rowling’s hand prints set into the paving on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, Scotland –
