Review: The Chalk Man

The Chalk Man review is up on my main blog!


Newsflash – OPERATION: SIBERIA Launches

Newsflash – OPERATION: SIBERIA Launches


OPERATION: SIBERIA, the 3rd in my S-Squad series from Severed Press launches today.

OPERATION: SIBERIA follows the survivors of the Scottish Special Forces squad from INFESTATION and OPERATION: ANTARCTICA, to the opposite side of the world this time, and an investigation of a very peculiar zoo in the Northern Russian Tundra

In this one you’ll find more sweary Scotsmen, lots of bullets, big hairy beasties, Mammoths, Dire Wolves, Thunderbirds, more bullets, and more swearing.

I’m still having great fun with this group of my countrymen.

They’ll be back.

What’s left of them.

When Captain John Banks and his squad are sent to investigate a zoo in Siberia, he expects to find tigers, bears, maybe elk But there is something there that is new, yet very, very old.

Beasts that haven’t walked the Earth since the last Ice Age have been cloned, revived, and set loose to roam free

Little Tree, by F.T. McKinstry

A race of immortal warriors who live by the sword.
A gate between the worlds.
Warriors, royals, seers and warlocks living in uneasy peace on one side of the Veil.
Until now.

In a war-torn realm occupied by a race of immortal warlords called the Fylking, trouble can reach cosmic proportions. Using the realm as a backwater outpost from which to fight an ancient war, the Fylking guard an interdimensional portal called the Gate. The Fylking’s enemies, who think nothing of annihilating a world to gain even a small advantage, are bent on destroying it.

The Deciding Book

A few days ago I was torn between two books. “Which should I read first?” I asked myself that question several times. Well, I tried both. 

The first was Lunora and the Monster King by H.S. Crow


After 5% into the book, I knew it wasn’t for me. It’s written like a play with the description of the characters at the beginning of the book. Then it tells us what said person is doing (i.e. laughing, crying), then we get a few words of dialogue. The chapters are acts, and very boring acts I might add. Unfortunately, this is not what I had in mind for an enjoyable fantasy novel. 
The second book was Stryke First: A Comic Fantasy by Kevin Partner
After 5% of this book, I also knew this wasn’t for me. I kept anticipating the comedy, but I never found any.
So, after not getting past the 5% in both books I decided to DNF them. Now that I’m older, I’m quick to DNF a book. Life is too short to read books that do not catch my interest, though that is not to say that someone else might not enjoy these books.
The book that has gotten my attention, and I will definitely finish is: 
The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor
So far, so good! I can’t wait to finish this book!
Have a wonderful day, my Lovelies! 

Blog Tour Guest Post: The Bitch Queen Drinking Game!

This sounds like an interesting drinking game for those that love to read and drink. Courtesy of THE TOME & TANKARD INN! Have fun!


To celebrate the release of The Ikessar Falcon, follow-up to The Wolf of Oren-yaro, I’ve created this drinking game. Play at your own discretion.


The rules are simple. Make any of Wol’s cocktails from The Tome and Tankard (I highly recommend Enosh Sucks, which remains one of my favourites. Or you can try Khine’s Milk Tea which is also really good, albeit not so diet-friendly, to round up the theme). Then, follow this guide while you read or reread the books from the Annals of the Bitch Queen series!

Take a shot when:

  • Talyien gets irritated.
  • Talyien snaps at someone.
  • Talyien interrupts someone mid-sentence.
  • Talyien threatens to kill someone.
  • Talyien actually kills someone.
  • Talyien gives someone a new, insulting name.
  • Talyien gets a horse killed.
  • Rayyel gets interrupted mid-sentence.
  • Rayyel infodumps.
  • Rayyel is completely oblivious of social cues.
  • Khine plans a ruse.
  • Khine explains something to Talyien.
  • Khine lies about something.

Rainne's Ramblings

I thought it would be fun to take part, so here goes:

1. If you could be an inanimate object, what would you be?

A good book.
I’d be able to bring some joy to someone and keep reality away for a while.

2. Where would you like to visit, and why?


A: because there’s so much to see and do, and B: because lots of awesome authors live there and hopefully, I’d be able to meet them, buy their books, get them to sign them… and no horrendous postage costs 😉

3. If you could be any animal, what would you be?Cookie

A cat…
for no other reason than I like cats

4. What was your dream as a child?

Honestly!? I have no idea

5. If you could only have one kind…
