On the way to Lost Gorge

My latest trilogy series, the Forest Immortal Saga, stars three brothers, a dark woods, and a secret. The more you get to know me, the more you’ll see that I have a thing for dark woods. And for magic and the paranormal. And for all things Native American/Indian. And for caves. And for waterfalls, too.

One of the settings in Oswald’s Revenge (Book Two of the FIS) has a number of these elements all gathered together in one location. The area-it’s a hideout-is set in a large ravine with a rock-strewn river, numerous waterfalls, several caves, and giant boulders perfect for climbing. Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves in New Hampshire served as the inspiration for the hideout and it is gorge-ous!

It’s also magical and mysterious…

A Spelunking I Will Go

There’s a reason I wrote a fantasy series about an underground world…I love caves! I think I would live in one if I could. A simpler dream of mine is to someday explore a cave without following a cement path or listening to a guide. I want to get down and dirty and crawl on my belly and maybe even get stuck once or twice. I’ve visited several caves in my day, but as all cave junkies know, the guided tours, though typically fun and interesting, can leave you feeling unfulfilled.

Spread the Wordle: A Cool Marketing Tool for Authors!

Here’s an awesome marketing tool for authors. It’s called a wordle and can be found at Wordle.com. You can create your own wordle, using your own words, colors, and configurations. It’s very simple. Here’s the one I did for The Chronicles of Anaedor: The Prophecies.

Wordle
The process takes very little time – all you have to do is type in the words, pick a font, pick a color and play around with the configurations (all horizontal, all vertical, some of both, etc). Once you are finished, you can save the product to the wordle site. This makes your wordle public, so anyone can view it. You can also take a screen shot (the FAQ provides a link that will guide you on how to do this) and save it for display on your website. You can use your creation to make t-shirts or posters or bookmarks. Whatever you want!

Wordle is fun and it’s free! So get out there and spread the wordle. Your wordle!
