Now that I have joined the unemployment line (due to restructure in newspaper company), I am taking a little time to return to the writing of book three in the Nine Worlds series, The Gold Sarcophagus. This is also a chance for me to give you, the followers of my blog, some value for your investment in deciding to follow me. You will notice that I just posted a blog about the trailer Michael Lenehan has created for me. It is amazing that I, in Australia, can liaise with someone on the other side of the world, in Ireland, for our mutual benefit.
So, where is book three going? I am quite excited about this one, as it is the grand finale for the entire series, and I have a lot of ideas for producing what I hope will be a blockbuster story, with a lot of drama, twists, suspense and a few things for people to think about. Book 2 was much more racier than the highly descriptive first volume, while the third book I intend to fall somewhere between the two. The storyline in Gold Sarcophagus will take on a wider dimension as I involve the alien master race only hinted in The Wizard’s Sword, and brought into focus in Three Stones of Destiny. You will meet more of the alien master race, and finally get to meet the inhabitants of the last planet in the triad – the Nerthulians, who will suddenly become very familiar to you. The mission that set the erfin Mirrortac after the Three Stones of Destiny will continue as the odds are stacked even more against this unlikely hero, and his triplet children and partner who join him in Nerthule. The mission goes beyond Mirrortac to involve the alien master race, the Uranians, and the traitor who was assumed long dead but rises up to embrace more power than he ever held before.
I am just into Chapter 2 at this stage, or about 11,600 words. There is a long journey ahead yet … and reworking to do, but I will tease you from time to time with excerpts as I did with Three Stones.
Cheers for now. PS: I quickly designed the logo for the Uranians. What do you think?
My graphic artist Michael Lenehan has been busy the last month working on a trailer for my second book Three Stones of Destiny. It has been his first venture into creating a animated trailer, which he has created in a cartoon style rather than a more painstaking method. Overall, I am quite pleased with it, as it captures the drama of a key point in the book when my erfin character Mirrortac faces his antagonist Yidu for the first time. My YouTube link for the trailer is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i98tLcgUu4Q&feature=em-upload_owner
