World Book Day 2018

Today we are celebrating World Book Day, but many of you will also be struggling with the snow!

For those of you who are having a challenging time with the weather, please do be safe.

Across the world, people are celebrating their favourite books and we are no different. Firstly, our twin boys went to school dressed as Ink from ‘Orgo Runners’. An obvious choice I’ll admit. Here they are in photos; Ian is on the right and Lewis on the left.

‘Orgo Runners: The First Run’ & ‘dissent RENEGADES’ are both FREE TODAY on Kindle too! Grab your copies here…

U.S.A. FREE ‘dissent’ Books

Also, my daughter Olivia has entered a ‘Book In A Box’ competition at High School. Needless to say, she also chose to work around her dad’s books. I’m not forcing them…honest!

Olivia took in two boxes. One is for the ‘dissent’ books (top two photos), and the other for ‘Orgo Runners’ (bottom two photos).

That’s all for now. If you’re celebrating World Book Day 2018, I hope you have an incredible day.

And again, if you’re having an awful time with the weather, please do take care of yourselves.

Much Love. πŸ€—

Orgo In The Snow

Hi everyone,

I’ve always fancied trying a bit of wildlife photography. What I love most, is seeing pictures of animals in their natural habitat. As such, this morning, I thought I’d give it a go.

Here are two orgo in their natural surroundings…

The orgo featured are Bug and Floe from the “Orgo Runners” books. I’m hoping you’ve enjoyed seeing them in the wild! 😊

Audiobooks

Hey everyone,

When I first received paperback copies of “dissent RENEGADES”, it was a magical moment. I can’t easily describe the feelings that I had, holding the first book that I’d published in my own hands. In fact, I’m not even going to attempt to describe how it felt. Trust me; it was incredible!

I thought that perhaps it would be different the second time around. But honestly, when copies of “Morrigan” arrived, the same thing happened. I was spellbound all over again. So, I’ve come to the conclusion that these are feelings that never get old. Likewise, I’ve realised that similar feelings can occur over other formats too. Audiobooks are an excellent example.

Audiobooks!!

Right now, the audiobook of “Morrigan” is in production. It is narrated by Tegan Hufton, and listening to her reading my story back to me is unreal! ❀

I also listened to a fair few narrators before finding Tegan, but for me, she was the one best suited for this project. Her tone and style are so natural, and Tegan is the perfect narrator for the “dissent” saga. As such, we will be producing an audiobook of “dissent RENEGADES” too. I can’t tell you how excited I am!

By the way, Tegan can be found on Facebook and Twitter too.

Anyway…

The “Morrigan” audiobook should be available around mid-March, and “dissent RENEGADES” will come after.Β  So, now I’m curious.Β  Tell me…

What are your thoughts on audiobooks?

Authors-Have you used this format for any of your books?

Readers-Do you listen to many audiobooks?

Let me know. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Much Love,

R.J.

P.S. The “dissent” books are currently available in both paperback and Kindle versions. You can find them here…

Happy New Year – “dissent” Book Plans

Hi All,

Firstly, I want to wish you all a very ‘Happy New Year’. I hope 2018 brings you everything you want it to.

Where the “dissent” books are concerned, the new year will also bring new beginnings. I have decided to start with the book series I am calling “Orgo-Runners”. These books will be written with younger readers in mind (around age 6-10). As such, each of the stories will be much shorter than the main “dissent” saga instalments. However, “Orgo-Runners” is still set in the “dissent” world, and whilst there will be new ‘main’ characters, some familiar ones will also appear from time to time. Due to the adventure within each of these books, I am certain that they will appeal to many children. My aim is to release two “Orgo-Runners” books by Easter!

After that, it will be back to the main “dissent” books and the sequel to “RENEGADES”. As you probably know, book two in the series will be called “VENGEANCE”. You can see the cover for this below, which is beautifully illustrated by Amy Leslie! I plan to publish “VENGEANCE” around July.

Then, to wrap up 2018, I am going to publish a new “dissent” short. This time, it will be Cedric’s story. A fair few people have asked for more about Cedric, and his story fits perfectly between books two and three. You will see why once we get there.

So, that’s it…

That’s the “dissent” plan for 2018! Hope you are as excited about it as I am. Who knows, more may crop up as we go. We will just have to see.

Eyes on me…

Much Love,

R.J.
