A TV show or movies?

Another great question comes over Facebook from Ninett Aarmo. In this one she asks:

Do you think the series would be better suited as a TV-show, or a series of movies?

Given that this series is going to be at least 8 books, I think a TV show would probably be better. A TV show would also be able to go into greater depth but considering there is some sex and violence it would probably be better if the show was on a station like HBO, Cinemax, Epix, Showtime, etc. I could also see movies but that might take a lot of editing. Keep up the great questions!

The Cliffs of Connemaigh

“The world is forever changed. Two dimensions are now one, and our heroine, Elaine Castle, a human, is navigating a world filled with dragons, orcs, and a mysterious enemy utilizing every power at its disposal to make sure that Elaine does not survive to unite the humans, Forest Elves, and Sky Elves. Our heroine is a wielder – a magic wielder, that is, and she definitely retains ancestral memory of being an elf, but is Elaine a helmannigr, a human born with an elven soul?

While she trains and her teacher tries to determine if she is, indeed, helmannigr, she fights with her blocks against two of the seven elements that all wielders have access to. These blocks are killing her, as magic kills the untrained. Is the answer in Connemaigh, the abandoned city of the Sky Elves that she arrived at in The Autumn of the Whitewood, or is it elsewhere in this new and dangerous world?

An epic fantasy with elements of romance, a hint of sci-fi, and a creative plot, The Cliffs of Connemaigh uses traditional fantasy tropes with new twists, and challenges the boundaries of the genre of fantasy.”

A Goodreads Review of “The Autumn of the Whitewood”

The Autumn of the Whitewood cover

So I have another 5 star review. This time on Goodreads.

This book is fabulous. The author gives enough information to let the reader’s imagination do the work, but not so much that it’s overwhelming or obnoxious. It focuses on a heroine, which I was really excited to find; in fantasy, from what I’ve noticed, the protagonist is a male, but this book challenges that. The writing is styled well, showing the character’s thoughts and giving them voices of their own while retaining the voice of the author in the storytelling. The author’s style is almost scientific, but warm, and not quite as distant, which mirrors the protagonist’s profession as a a biologist.
Beyond that, the story, while a little predictable at some points, often leaves the reader guessing, and doesn’t immediately resolve the problems presented to the protagonist. The characters are complex, and very human, including the protagonist. In addition, the supporting characters are also well-developed and it’s obvious that each of them has a life before the story, and the part they are playing in it. It seems as if the characters take on a life of their own. It’s paced a little slower at the start, but is intriguing and quickly picks up. Overall, The Autumn of the Whitewood is an excellent read

Another 5 star review!

Another 5 star review came in today for my first novel “The Autumn of the Whitewood”. It is as follows:

An imaginative and sweeping start to a promising fantasy series. The major characters come across realistically, flaws and all. The humans are thrown into the deep end when their world is merged with another realm. Those from that realm have to learn to understand how to work with humans again and fit them into their world. Several major twists, which left me wanting to know how they pan out. Even though this is clearly the first in a series, I didn’t feel it ended on a cliff-hanger. – Ian Smith, Amazon Reviewer

The book is also free today for Kindle! Go get your copy: http://www.amazon.com/Autumn-Whitewood-Chronicles-Starborn-Book-ebook/dp/B00XJREWD2/ref=pd_rhf_dp_p_img_1The Autumn of the Whitewood cover

The full cover of “The Autumn of the Whitewood”

cs_6x9_376_white-13

The modern-day world has just collided with a forgotten, ancient realm. Elaine Castle, a wildlife biologist, finds that the mythical creatures of her childhood, such as elves, goblins, and orcs, not only exist, but are locked in an age-old war. Elaine discovers her own dormant magical abilities as she learns about this new world she must live in.

If left untrained, her magical abilities would threaten to destroy her and everyone she loves. Only the elves can train her and she faces her own inner struggle as her companions begin to reveal who they really are. To make matters worse, she and her companions find themselves taking sides in the war.

In a world filled with dangers like banshee, dragons, and a centuries-old war, The Autumn of the Whitewood follows Elaine and her friends on their journey to Connemaigh, an old elven stronghold, in the hopes of training her. The Autumn of the Whitewood is a fantasy with a dash of romance and magical, as well as mythical creatures. It is the first book in The Chronicles of the Starborn.
