Hello 👋

I would like to welcome you to my Blog…

My name is R.J. Furness, and I have wanted to write for as long as I can remember. Despite having many ideas for stories over the years; for whatever reason, I have never actually written them. As a (coughs) forty-three year old father of three, and husband to an incredible lady, I have finally decided to push myself, and write the stories that I always wanted to. Creating new worlds, people, and the like, has always been something I have kept private in the past. But now, I want to create something that my whole family can be proud of. Now, I am letting you all inside my imagination…

Currently, I am writing the first novel in the DISSENT series. This particular story is called RENEGADES, and it is planned for release on the 1st November 2017. However, it is only the first of three novels that I have planned for this series. Likewise, I also have some shorter ‘spin-off’ stories planned too.

Along the way, I will share ideas from my stories right here. With the DISSENT books alone, I have lots of new characters, worlds and creatures to introduce you to. Whilst these stories are based in the future, and have a hint of fantasy too perhaps, I hope they will appeal to many…not just those who like fantasy fiction.

My hope is that people will join me here, to have discussions, contribute ideas or give feedback. I would love to hear from as many of you as possible. Maybe you’re a writer, a reader or just a lover of great stories. It really doesn’t matter, please feel free to jump in! Also, if you would like to keep right up to date with the latest news on my writing, please get in touch by filling in your details here…

I look forward to hearing from all of you, so please do join in.

Best Wishes

R.J. Furness
