Being able to do magic should have made life better for Tabia and her father. When he sells her into slavery to pay his debts, everything becomes more complicated — and a lot more dangerous. 

Caught up in a web of violence and deceit, she's torn away from everything and everyone she knows. In order to save herself and those she loves, she'll have to learn to harness the Crimson Fire.


Check out the book everyone. And good luck Mirren, can't wait for Book 2 to be released.
Once I've read my copy of Crimson Fire I'll post a review.

Now everyone, ask questions, post comments, share the book, spread the love. There's an entire weekend of online promoting so make sure you follow Mirren to go on this virtual book tour with her.

Latest news! I've signed up to write a post-apoc series

When I started writing, I had one set goal: to become a prolific author. At the time I was into reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz, and I wanted to write books, lots of them. 

Now I have that chance. After writing, publishing, and promoting 10 books, I've signed up to to write a series of post-apocalyptic fiction books for Mission Critical Publishing. The reason I signed up was simple. They're innovative. The publishing industry today is fast and fluid. 

I've agreed to write 3 books in 6 months. Each book will be around 60,000 words when completed. I'll need to become a writing machine. To accomplish this I'll need to do 2 things:

#1 Write fast

The only way for me to write fast is to write an overview of the entire book (or series). This can be one page per book. Then I write dots points that become the chapters. Complications, conflicts, solutions, all fit into these chapters.

Then I set a daily word count. I'm now at the stage where, provided I know what I'…

Top 10 Australian independent magazines for teenage girls

First up, I have to say that there aren't 10 blog/magazines listed, only 9. I couldn't find 10 so if you know of any please please please let me know who they are so I can include them on this list.

Flicking through the internet for stories is a bit like flicking through a pile of magazine clippings on the floor. It can be fun putting everything you want to read together in one pile, but after a while you might want to sit in a chair and have that pile put together in more manageable fashion for you to read, say maybe like the magazines or blogs the articles were cut out of.

Okay, that's enough of that analogy. This article is about finished product of blogs and magazines that compile together a host of articles on subjects a reader is interested in. I'm featured ten nine Australian independent magazines both virtual and tangible which I came across during one of my wild searches through hundreds of internet sites.

Magazines have really taken a bashing over the past decad…

If you like alien occupation fiction, then this book is for you. It’s like ‘The Expanse’ but played out on Earth.
