I’m pleased with how the cover looks since I think it’s captured one of the settings in the story perfectly. The picture used was one I took from a trip to the Norwegian Fjords. I was in awe of the amazing scenery as it felt like a magical place and a completely different world.
At the moment the book is only available as an eBook but I intend to produce a print version at a later date.

This time around after signing off on the proofs I was given the opportunity to witness the book being bound, which was fascinating and I have included some pictures.
At the end I was also given the first couple of books to come off the press and the rest of the books will be delivered soon.
The eBook version is already available for pre-order.

I think trying to work out a suitable title was one of the most difficult things to do and I always struggle with it. After a lot of debate and thought I finally decided on a title of Shadows Of Cayhurst: The Awakening of Droluk. Shadows of Cayhurst will also be the overall title of the series.
The book cover was also difficult to decide on since I wanted something that had an exciting, fantasy look. I’m not sure if I succeeded in achieving this but I am pleased with the vibrant colour of the cover and just hope others like it.
I don’t want to give too much more away about the story at this stage but I will be posting some more information about the book soon. In the meantime the blurb can be seen below.
In the west of Aegarn, an ancient power has awoken. Monstrous creatures steeped in shadow sweep the land, relentlessly hunting their prey.
In the village of Fifield, a boy is forced from his adopted home and into a world of adventure. His unusual gifts guide him through an incredible world, and set him on a course that will lead straight into the heart of the darkness…
With giants, orcs, beasts and other creatures in their path, Falrick and his companions must do what they can against the seemingly invulnerable army of darkness. But even as new alliances are made, old grudges and old friends cast their own shadows…

Unfortunately there are only so many classics that were written and since I’ve always loved anything science fiction, adventure or fantasy I then moved onto mainly reading these genres. I’ve read other genres such as romance, horror and drama as well which I enjoyed but often found they didn’t grab my attention and make me want to keep reading the way a good fantasy or sci-fi can. The biggest problem I’ve had over the years though has been a lack of space to keep all the books I’ve read and so I did move onto reading eBooks. It’s great from a storage and environmental point of view but I have to admit sometimes I still prefer to read a paperback, to me it’s part of the reading experience.
I’ve still got to add more books to my read list since I haven’t even come close to adding all the books I’ve ever read and I can’t even remember half the ones I’ve read from the library over the years.

At the moment I’m pleased with how book two is progressing but it makes getting the ending right to book one even more crucial. Unfortunately this means it is also taking me a long time to get book one finished but I’d prefer to spend the extra time on it and try to make it as good as I can. I guess at the end of the day I’d like the finished book to be something that throws me into an imaginary world full of excitement and conjures up amazing images in my mind when I read it.
