1 Month Until Children of Sirphan is Released!

Hello World Out There World!

As you can tell from the title I have exciting news. Children of Sirphan, the second book of the Prophecy Six Series, is being released 1 month from today – December 20th, 2016. I am so pumped to be able to add a second book to the collection and I hope all of you are excited to continue following Liora on her adventures!

With that said I want to give you a little information about Children of Sirphan:

Children of Sirphan follows Liora learning more about her powers and about the Prophecy Six. She soon discovers that she isn’t the only one with powers and that there are five others chosen by the Gods. As she is the first of the Six it is up to her to find them and help them understand/ control their new abilities.

While learning more about her role as the Six’s leader, and fighting with guardians on how she is to act within the Castle of Demor, Liora begins having dreams of a white haired girl standing on a rocky shoreline being swallowed by a flood. Plagued by her dreams and trying to remember/ recover from her own trauma of losing her people Liora is determined to find the answers through finding the strange girl and discovering why she continues to haunt Liora’s mind.

A mystery wrapped in a world of fantasy, approaching social issues in a creative manner with lighthearted/ realistic characters. Find the first chapter of Children of Sirphan HERE.

Child of the Light by D.M. Wiltshire | Book Review

The wonderful McKenzie from Bookishthingsandtea blog just reviewed Child of the Light. I understand where she became frustrated with the first book but I do appreciate her honesty and was pleased to hear that she did enjoy reading it. I look forward to hearing her opinion on book two that will be coming out Dec 20th, 2016.

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 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.

CHECK IT OUT NOW!!

P6 Blog Has Reached 500 Followers!!

Oh my Gods!

So, August 4, 2015 was the first day I ever posted anything to this blog. I had no idea what direction it was going to go. There were no plans laid out as to what I wanted to write or do on this platform… but over time it was clear that a community of readers found something I was saying to be worthy of their precious time.

Today marks the day Prophecy Six Blog has reached 500 followers! That’s half of 1000 and that just blows my mind!

I want to thank all of you for supporting me in your various ways let it be sending me links to help with self-publishing, leaving comments that I love replying to, or just liking/ viewing my content when I post. Whatever you do, however you support me, it doesn’t go unnoticed. So, thank you.

As we have reached 500 followers I’m going to be making a special – What Inspires Me Post with helpful resources or videos that I like to watch when I need inspiration. Some may not be related to writing at all, and some you may consider completely ridiculous but I’ll share them anyway.

I would also like to do a book give away. As I have 500 followers I want to give away 5 signed paperback versions of Prophecy Six Book One – Child of the Light. What you need to do to consider yourself entered is:

  1. Like my Facebook Page
  2. Like this Post
  3. Comment Below

It’s that simple!!

This give away will be open until I have five people to give books to. So there will be no time restrictions for entering.

Now, with that said I have to now go organize all the stuff I want to put into the What Inspires Me post.

And until next time – toodles!

Groups & Beliefs of Gaitan: Fellowship Of Flesh

In the world of Gaitan – where my Prophecy Six book series is based – there are plenty of religions and groups that add their own spice to the world creation process. One of these groups are the Fellowship of Flesh. This group is located in La’reen but there is a subgroup that is rarely discussed that can be found in the Southern Capital – Syder. This group is interesting as the main group and subgroup contrast in their beliefs… but at the same time both groups have a large effect on the world they are in.

Exciting Update!!

For a while I’ve been M.I.A from the blogger-sphere but I have some exciting reasons why.

First is I have completed book two – Children of Sirphan – and it is now entering the first round of editing. At the moment it is 90,000 words – about 12,000 more than the first book. I also believe my writing has improved since the first book, which I always find exciting to see. I believe there is always space to improve even if you have a degree in the subject. 😛

The second exciting news is that I’m currently working on a visual novel for the first book, so expect to see concepts for characters and locations found in the world of Gaitan/ Prophecy Six showing up on here.

Third and final exciting piece of information is that I am working on another project along with all those mentioned above. I’m trying to start a tourism/ local advertising blog for London, Ontario where I write about living and learning about what London has to offer new comers or long time Londoners. This will be local business reviews/ advertising, fun activities/ events going on around the city, and maybe even interview the people living in London to find out why they love this Forest City so much.

It is starting slow… but once I get a few more adventures under my belt I’m certain things will start rolling. We shall have to wait and see.

Wishing all the best with all of you and hopefully I can get back to a more regular schedule with regular content again. 🙂

Toodles,

Deanna

Update: Child of the Light Smashwords Reaches 100 Downloads!

Firstly, all of you who have supported me throughout this process are amazing. Your support, suggestions, and comments make me look forward to posting on this blog.

With that said, I want to announce that book 1 of the Prophecy Six series has reached 100 downloads on Smashwords!reached101

I know 100 isn’t a big number but I’m so excited that my book has gotten this many downloads with so little marketing. Marketing isn’t my strong suit – being an introvert with a self-doubting complex doesn’t help – but wow! Wow! 100 downloads…

Well damn… I’m happy with that.

Anyways, Child of the Light is still FREE on Smashwords – so don’t be afraid to check it out if you haven’t already. If you have, you’re amazing and fantastic and thank you so much for taking the time to download this!

Without you – my readers and followers – Prophecy Six wouldn’t be as fun to work on. Again, thank you. 🙂
