Tania was getting tired of not having any friends just because every time her mom changed her job they had to move. But this time Mom had really gone too far and dragged Tania away with her to a temporary posting as senior security officer on Calista Station.
Things start to look up for Tania when she meets Mark and his friends Windracer and Shr’un. Windracer is an apprentice mediator, there to observe trade talks, while Shr’un’s father is a technician for Malachi Mining, the same company where Tania’s mom works . But all is not well. star-stones, gems forged in the heart of a dying sun, are being stolen and smuggled from the Station. When Shr’un’s father disappears, it appears that he may have been involved with the smugglers , but then things go from bad to worse – Tania’s mom disappears as well! Now it is up to Tania, Mark, Windracer, and Shr’un, with a little help from Shr’un’s highly illegal AI, to solve the mystery and rescue the missing parents.

What I do in my spare time – the book trailer for Leonie Rogers ‘Amethyst Pledge’

April 20th, 2020 9:52 am

Working with words (writing, editing, and publishing) is now my full time job. Photoshop manipulations, and 3D animations using Daz3D is my hobby. The learning curve is quite steep but my progress has been fairly consistent, as demonstrated by my last trailer for Leonie Rogers’ ‘Amethyst Pledge’.

The book itself is now available for purchase online, by ordering from your local bookshop.

A thank you to all those who attended the Book Launch of Trouble on Teral’ held at Rabble Books and Games in Maylands on the 12th of January. It was a great turn out and I ended up having a lot of fun, and selling a lot of books, including some Nightfall.

I have to particularly thank Charlie Staples who served as MC for the event, and Nat and Sam from Rabble who helped set

everything up and operated the till.

With the arrival of my new ‘reading’ chair on Christmas Eve my workspace in the loft is now complete.

The other photo shows the all-in-one machine (on the right) used for writing, while the graphics machine (on the left) is used for photoshop, Daz3D, and the occasional game. You can also just make out the bookcase holding Hague Publishing’s stock (Print on Demand is a wonderful thing).
