The Lay of Angor

Book 2: Breath of Gaia Out NOW in paperback & on Kindle!

I'm thrilled that my ex-diving buddy, the immensely talented artist Graham Scott, has provided the cover illustration for Breath of Gaia - see left for his interpretation of the Angorian flagship - and I hope he'll be doing the rest of the books in the series. (If you scroll down the page you'll see another example of his beautiful work).

Breath of Gaia is out NOW on Kindle for £2.99, and the paperback edition at £3.99 plus p+p from

And here's what military historian and author David Cooke has to say about it: 'Replete with wonderful descriptions of places, people and customs, the characters grow apace and the story sees Elinor change from a spoilt little girl into a woman with a mission. A cracking read.'

In some respects Book 2 was easier and more fun to write than Book 1 (and I'm told by my proof-readers that it's better!). With the background sketched in, the 'ground rules' of Urth established and the main characters introduced, the action could move on from the dark, claustrophobic setting of Gondarlan to a much wider world stage:

Princess Elinor has embarked on a journey, in more ways than one... leaving her homeland for the first time, and (at long last, some might say) starting to grow up a bit! Of course, she's far from happy to begin with - and she has a lot of painful lessons to learn along the way as she sails on Breath of Gaia from Thorshaven, via the rainforest land of Centralia to Aumaia, capital city of Upper Angor. It's more of an adventure yarn than Gondarlan as our heroine encounters pirates, killer whales and giant spiders, meets her prospective husband's family and learns all manner of things: how to swim, how to fend for herself and how to, um, enjoy herself in some interesting new ways! And it ends with a twist which, I hope, will leave you gasping for Book 3...
