The Journey Begins… and a new Idea.

Well, now I am officially a Pfoxchase Author, I suppose I ought to get on with finishing the stories!


Or at least that was the idea when I went to bed last night. Puff it seems had other ideas. I had a bout of insomnia and when I did manage to get to sleep, I started dreaming.

It was a good dream – really cinematic and in full colour with me and TOH as the MC’s. There were tunnels and magic and dragons and a school that we kept playing hooky from.  Then there was a big ceremony and a fight with the headmistress. I destroyed her by making her sink into the Magma Layer of the Earth’s Crust.

I woke up this morning and I had to get it down on paper… to the point of making the kids late for school, because I needed to get the main points down. So after they left the house, I hit the PC and settled down to broaden the points, get a back story and a timeline… by 11 am, I had it all down.

I put the concept up on FB notes to get an idea of if the story has legs… and it seems it does.

Here’s the Pitch for you to look at… it’s all you’re getting mind, so no screaming at me.

The Return of The Magicians

Magic is a Crime. Magicians are marked at birth and segregated. Failed Magicians are refused the right to reproduce. To have Magic is to be a shame to your family.

Two young Magicians join forces with the Queen of Britain to end the Tyranny and Genocide. Will they succeed? Time and a bit of magic will tell…

TTATE comes first.

I have a contract for that and all my other WIP are on hold until my Editor…I love that phrase… MY EDITOR*shivers with delight*  is happy with TTATE  for publication.

I might do some background stories for “The Return of The Magicians”  and finish “Angel’s Crown” as a rest from the hard work of producing a book, but other than that, nothing else is going forward…

I sort of feel sorry for the characters. They’re clamouring in my head for release and I have to be hard and not let them out.

*smiles sadly and closes down the new WIP Folder for later*

Now, on with TTATE!
