5 Star Review of Children of Sirphan

I’m starting to get reviews back from people regarding my second book – Children of Sirphan. So, like I usually do I want to share with you want one person thought. As I get more reviews – good, bad, or neutral – I will be sharing them on here.

With that said, here is the first review I received for my second book:

It reads: 

Another fantastic read. The Prophecy Six series is really picking up steam, and I’m always eager to read the next entry in the series. As always I find myself restless for the next one! Book 2 continues to build on an already realistic world, expanding in really interesting directions, and giving us a rich and unpredictable story. This is a series to follow!

Book Two Is Out And It Wasn’t Without Its Challenges

Hello World!

So, the day has finally come to announce the release of book 2 – Children of Sirphan.

Right off the top I’ll tell you I like this book more than my first. I learnt a lot from publishing my first one but the second one has a stronger story and better character development I find.

That, though, isn’t the challenge I am speaking of.

My laptop of eight years has officially died. It took me through university and two books before it decided to go out with a bang. You can say I burned it out… literally…

As I was sitting down yesterday, (December 19th), getting ready to set things up for a smooth launch my laptop had other plans. Within seconds of leaving it on my father-in-law’s couch Mr. Canuck smelt something burning… and well… it wasn’t long before my laptop ended up outside in the snow. Turns out the connection wire burnt out causing all the smoke to happen and the screen to die. I was also lucky to have back ups of the laptop on either online storage or other devices. That meant I was a little behind but not enough to delay the release today!

So, without further delay I want to introduce to you my second book – Children of Sirphan – which is now available for purchase on SMASHWORDS and AMAZON for ebook online. The price for the ebook is $2.99 USD and $3.99 CAD.

Paperback versions will be available closer to the summer as I want to add some special things to the paperback that you won’t be getting with the ebook, (like images for chapter headings and section headings).

If you wish to purchase the newest book of the P6 Series click the links below to be teleported to the shop of your choice. If you have any questions leave them in the comments down below and I will answer them as soon as I can.

Until next time be creative, stay safe, and as always Toodles! ^.^

Book one of the Prophecy Six series in Free on Smashwords!

Child of the Light

412.jpg

The world of Gaitan is used to conflict.

War has been common place between the northern and southern countries for centuries, but it isn’t their hatred which led to the city of Morza’s demise.

The Chaos Singers would say the Gods came down and cleansed the land in a brilliant light to prepare for the ending of the Era.

The common folk would say it was an explosion from the evening’s festivities gone wrong.
The truth is no one knows what happened that night.

Except one.

Upon investigating the remains of the city, in hopes of finding
information that could lead to a cure to the Northern prince’s mysterious sickness, Caldor Lefwid – an old sage – sights what appears to be fresh footprints heading towards the forest.

This discovery brings hope to an otherwise hopeless situation, and Caldor decides to take a chance.

With help from his trusted friend – Foe – Caldor begins the journey to find the last survivor of Morza and the cure the North is praying for.

Child of the Light is a fiction, fantasy, self-discovery story focused towards young adults (ages 14+). It’s the first book of the Prophecy 6 series, and covers a variety of issues facing young adults and the world today such as displacement due to conflict, and othering.

If you want a quick and easy read, this is the book for you.

Child of the Light, by D.M. Wiltshire: A Review

The wonderful Marian Thorpe wrote a review of my first book, and I have to say I was both surprised and pleased with the rating. Thank you, Marian. 🙂

Child of the LightChild of the Light is the first book by indie author D.M. Wiltshire. Falling squarely into the fantasy genre, Child of the Light is set in a well-realized world, Gaitan, where north and south have been at war for generations. Cael, the prince of the north, is suffering from an agonizing illness that is beyond the knowledge of the Master Healer, Caldor. The answer may lie in the medical knowledge of the province of Morza, but in one searing moment on the night of the 200 Year Moon, Morza – and all her people – are destroyed by a flash of light: a judgment from the gods, or a celebration gone horribly wrong?

When Caldor and his friend Foe go to investigate, they find two things: the healer Naygu’s book, hidden, safe, and written in a language Caldor can’t read, and the footsteps of a child, leaving the devastated city…

Update: Here’s Things You Should Know

tumblr_n515s2bmnj1s9ed8bo4_500

Okay, so I’ve been MIA for a while but I have reason for this. I am so so sorry I haven’t been gracing this blog with my presents as of late. I need to learn to balance my time better but I have so much going on in my life I’ve decided one big update should explain everything to you.

I’ve been in good spirits as of late and just have been really busy trying to find work since moving to a new city. Also I’m trying to finish book two. There are other reasons I’ve also been MIA but before that I want to let you know that I’ve updated the synopsis of book 2 if you are curious to know more about what the second book of the P6 series has to offer. CLICK HERE FOR THAT

Now onto my reasons:

|REASON 1|

Book 2 is almost done the pre-editing process and I’ve gotten to the point where I’m wanting to get peoples thoughts on what I’ve gotten so far. I set up a Wattpad account to do this in hopes of getting a variety of opinions, suggestions, and so on to improve my story.

 

|REASON 2|

I also have been MIA because I recently found out that someone wishes to turn my book into a visual novel giphygame… which I have to say is pretty exciting since I live for visual novel games. I’ve been spending a lot of time doing my own graphic design projects in hopes of getting the basic ideas for each character flushed out before the game crew takes over. If you want to see some character concepts you can check out my P6 Facebook Page.

I am super excited for this I can’t handle it. :3

 

|REASON 3|

For a while I’ve been debating on going with a self-publishing company to publish book 2, which has taken a lot of my free time researching which one would fit me. I also came to the conclusion that none of them fit me and I will likely publish on my own again… but I need to figure out ways of getting my book out there.

If any of you have some fun hints on self-marketing your book and are willing to share I’d love you for life!

 

|REASON 4|nudge-nudge-wink-wink-o

I have sent requests to a couple of book reviewers in hopes book 1 will be reviewed to gain more traction. We shall see what happens there since I haven’t heard anything from anyone yet. Keeping my fingers crossed for that one.

If you are looking for a book to review you are more than welcome to review mine.

 

All right, I think that’s it for now. If I have anything else to add I’ll do another update. Until then stay classy!! 🙂

(And no I don’t feel bad for using that many gifs in one post.)

 

Child of the Light FREE on Smashwords

So, I did this a while back but I believe I should post again about CotL being free. I have plenty of reasons why I’ve made my first book free, but the main reason is I wanted to make my book free so anyone and everyone who wanted to read it could.

Child of the Light is 259 pages long. YA Fantasy Fiction – with what I’ve been told are entertaining characters living within a deep but not over-saturated detailed world.

Of course this is what I heard but according to my reviews people seem to enjoy it:

So, again, I welcome you to download the free e-book at Smashwords and explore the world of Gaitan like so many others have done. Also don’t forget to comment and rate my book – I love hearing what people think of my work good, bad, or anywhere in-between. 🙂
