Update

Leave a comment

So I didn’t update last week. I’ve been pretty busy – I finished the first draft of a new story and finished the final edits of the story I wrote before ‘The Magekiller’ (also wedding planning, and job applications, and presentations…). It’s a duology, and in total is about 4 times longer than ‘The Magekiller’. My hard-working proofreaders are currently reading it for the umpteenth time, and I’m hoping to have it out in the next month or so. I’m planning on making the first book free, and the second free for about 2 weeks and then price it around $1.99-$2.99. Anyway, I don’t read much when I’m writing, but now that’s all done I’m hoping to do more reading!

Review: Symphony of the Origin

Leave a comment

So I got a device for Christmas, that, according to Wikipedia, is known as a Phablet (bigger than a phone, smaller than a tablet). Since then I’ve been trying out a few games for it. I recently played ‘Symphony of the Origin’, an RPG designed for smartphones.

‘Symphony of the Origin’ follows Ryle, a young swordsman, as he sets out with a group consisting of elves, dwarves and golems to save the surface lands from the Evils of the Earth Depths. The game lasts about 6-8 hours, and you can buy extra content to make it last longer than that if you like.

Review: Pompeii by Robert Harris

Leave a comment

Everyone knows the story of Pompeii (except my fiancee). Mount Vesuvius erupts, and the town is destroyed, and preserved under layers of ash for centuries. Robert Harris’ book follows a young engineer working on the aqueducts a few days before the start of the eruption. The book is exciting and the descriptions of the eruption are fantastic. It was a really enjoyable read, and one that I highly recommend.
