July Camp NaNoWriMo is just round the corner! What are you guys doing for it? After the high of completing NaNoWriMo2016 and then April Camp 2017 and getting my groove back into writing — and I’m enjoying writing Rune Mageso much — I’m pretty psyched to do July Camp 2017.
The problem is as always: do I carry on with what I have and finish it as the NaNo project, or do I pick up something else I’ve been meaning to do for ages and just finish Rune Mage at a leisurely pace?
Either way, I think I’ll start plotting for a new novel during my week off next week and see if I have enough fodder to do it for Camp. If not, it’ll be Rune Mage all the way to the end.
Book promotion! “Dark Tidings” by KenMagee. Is blending old-time magic and modern technology your thing?
Dark Tidings is an urban fantasy adventure that blended the thrill and unlimited potential of an ancient magical world with the logic of modern day technology and takes you on a chase filled with excitement and humour as the main characters are tracked by those who seek the legendary spell in their hands.
What happens when ancient magic collides with the internet? One thing is certain, modern life will never be the same again. A thousand years ago, a young thief, Tung, and a disgraced wizard, Madrick, are thrust together in an executioner’s dungeon. In the darkness, Madrick reveals an incredible secret about a legendary spell. The great spell helps them escape their prison cell… and eventually their century. Catapulted into the present day, their lives collide with Michael, a computer hacker who plans to destroy the world’s largest bank. But sinister people are tracking their every move and they will stop at nothing to steal their spell.”

I read “The Paper Magician”, the trilogy, about a month and a half back. I’m not usually a steampunk or Victorian fiction fan, but I do love fantasy and magic and I bought the eBook when the first in the series was free. My memories of the books’ events are a bit hazy now we’re six weeks or so on from when I finished it, but I loved the series. It was time and money well spent (I bought the subsequent two in the series) and I chased the story, page after page, sequel after sequel.
It centres on a girl called Ceony, who graduates at the top of her magic school, only to become an unwilling apprentice in the art of paper magic due to lack of interest in the area from general magicians. Her tutor is a quirky but talented magician named Emery Thane. Her training doesn’t go as expected — just like any good story! — and we are catapulted into an exciting adventure when Emery’s ex-girlfriend (literally) rips his heart out.
