New illustration preview - fly my pretty!

"The King ushered his honoured guests into the beautiful royal courtyard, where docked the most magnificent airship ever conceived."

I know, I know, I've been saying this a lot over the past month, but I mean it this time! It's really not long now until the book is ready to launch. I'm so excited, terrified and hyper just thinking about it. Thank you all for your patience.

Two ladies I'll be thanking again and again over the next while is Gillian for her wonderful illustrations - once again, see above, below, right, but not left! And Laura Gray for the countless hours of her own time put into editing and cleaning the whole thing up. Both have helped make this reality, and I doubt I'll ever be able to truly repay them for it.

No Kindle? No Problem!


So come the end of the month, and The Unseen Chronicles of Amelia Black will hopefully be available on Amazon's Kindle site for your reading pleasure. I've managed to convince you to part with those two pounds. Excellent. Your kindness will never be forgotten.


Eh, one problem. You don't own a Kindle e-reader and quite rightly don't want to break out at least £111 for one. That's okay, I completely understand. Nor should you! Obviously if you're well versed in this area you'll already know this, but might as well explain here and now that there's alternative ways you can read this book come the end of July, start of August!


Thankfully if you own the following, you'll have absolutely no problem reading my book - I hope. Amazon have smartly developed Kindle reading applications on the following platforms, for FREE!! ::

If you're visiting this blog then you're most likely visiting it on those aforementioned platforms. Unless you're visiting it on a Blackberry. Then I'm sorry about that.

The Unseen Chronicles of Amelia Black Synopsis

Any frequent visitors of Gillian's blog will have undoubtedly seen this teaser image already, but here it is again!

The release date still hasn't been 100% decided upon, but felt it was time to release the official synopsis for The Unseen Chronicles of Amelia Black!

Amelia Black is a kind, curious and wonderful soul. Like her dear mother and father, who were equally kind, curious and wonderful, she was a keen explorer of the unknown. When her parents vanish without a trace, she finds herself swept into another universe. An Unseen Universe.

In the Unseen Universe, Amelia discovers a power within herself, which will change her life forever. Under the watchful eye of her faithful butler and lifelong friend, Julius E. Dawson and an ill-tempered pixie (just don’t call him a fairy) named Sid, watch as the extraordinary girl ventures into a magical universe full of pure goodness and unrivalled darkness.

Revelations of her past lie with a mysterious King of the Unseen Light, while her destiny may lead her to what lurks in The Dark.
