The Raided Heart

I’m really excited to share with you the cover of The Raided Heart – and I would love to know what you think! I’ve already shared the opening paragraph with you, and so now, here’s the blurb:

Meg Mathers, the headstrong youngest sibling of a reiving family on the English-Scottish border, is determined to remain at her childhood home, caring for the land and village she’s grown up with. When an accident brings her a broken ankle and six weeks in the resentful company of ambitious and angry young reiver Will, attraction starts to build. Both begin to realise they might have met their match, and the love of their lives, but 15th century border living is not that simple, as Meg soon finds herself betrothed to the weakling son of a tyrannical neighbour, Alexander Gray. When tragedy strikes, can Meg and Will find their way back…

The Last Plantagenet?, available on Amazon here, has already been classed as a ‘Discovered Diamond,’ by the Discovering Diamonds review blog, as well as having been awarded the Coffee Pot Book Club Award, by the Myths, Legends, Books and Coffee Pots blog.

Here’s the blurb, to whet your appetite:

The fireplace hadn’t looked like a time-portal.

All Kate had wanted was a fun, relaxing day out, watching the knights jousting at Nottingham Castle. What she ended up with was something quite different.

Transported in a heartbeat from 2011 to 1485, how will Kate handle life at the Ricardian court? Even more importantly, how will she cope when she catches the eye of the king himself?

Find out in this ‘giddily romantic’ romp, set just prior to the Battle of Bosworth.

There’s something particularly exciting about seeing your workshops on a poster in the local library!

Last month, we had a fun session on “getting started” on the novel journey, and next month, on Saturday 6th April 2019, we’re going to be looking at all things “casting”, i.e. getting those pesky characters right, and onto the page!

Whether you’re writing heroic heroes or villainous, well, villains, they all need to be rounded, well thought-out, and identifiable as individuals. After all, there’s nothing worse than reading a piece of fiction and simply not being able to tell anyone apart, or finding everyone dull and unengaging.

Well, come along to my next workshop, and we’ll start tackling these things. We’ll talk about descriptions, dialogue, and creating believable characters who really help enhance those story ideas you have bubbling away.

No experience is necessary, and it doesn’t matter what sort of writing you enjoy…
