The Dragon Defenders - Book Four is on its way!

I've finished the first draft of The Dragon Defenders - Book Four, and I'm pretty excited about it. Actually, that's a massive understatement – I'm freaking out! It has already passed the first test - my sons love it. My editor still has to read it, and then I've got to read it about ten more times, but my illustrator Kerem is working on the cover and Courtney is working on the animations.

I reckon it will be on the shelves come April this year. Hope you don't mind waiting that long!

The map!

 

I thought it might be a nice idea to post a picture of the wonderful map of The Island - Flynn and Paddy's untouched paradise which appears in The Dragon Defenders books. I crudely sketched it and then it was beautifully rendered by Turkish artist Kerem Beyit. I didn't know what he was going to come up with, but when I saw it it took my breath away!

OMG! Featured on Seven Sharp!

Tim Wilson, roving reporter-at-large, spoke to me about my rollercoaster journey of indie publishing. It was amazing to look back over the last six years and I want to say thankyou to everyone who ever bought a Dragon Brothers Book - it is much appreciated!
