FANTASY! It is a word that holds the reader’s imagination in the palm of a writer’s hand. The very word oozes unpredictable delights and will, no matter whether you are willing or not this genre will take you on a journey that begs to be believed. I am an Australian author with an obsession for serious fantasy, revelling in its many worlds and relish in writing novels with an abundance of traditional elements.

As a fantasy writer, I am self-indulgent in the belief that anything is possible in the writing world. Grimdark/ gritty / epic and traditional fantasy is where I dwell, so grab onto your seats, settle down with a cuppa or two and lose yourself in the worlds I create. I fall I in love with every one of my characters and am thankful they

"A dark, dark fantasy

Many fantasies describe themselves as "dark". I was not quite sure as to what a dark fantasy even is supposed to be. That is until I read this book. The plot is filled with sinister, truly evil characters. The protagonists fall..." Read more of this review »

Ellen Franklin I wish to thank everyone for the amazing friendships I have made in this busy online community. It is a joy to share what I do and who I am.
As an Indie Writer, I am well aware of the problems we are each faced with in the final stages of finishing a book for publication and then, promoting.

If anyone is interested in befriending me on FB I would stretch out my hand in that spirit of friendship. I am also an Administrator for 2 groups - one that encourages self-promoting and sharing, posting up your links to advertise yourself and the work you have done to achieve your dream.

http://www.facebook.com/groups/275449...

Author Interviews are a much, needed promotional tool that every writer seeks. This helps to not only realise our dream, but to celebrate the many hours spent in procuring its end. 


This group has been created to offer a meeting place for those seeking Interviews to showcase that dream and for those wishing to facilitate interviews, whether it be on a blog spot page or a website, to make that very important connection. It is a twofold benefit, promoting both the interviewer and the interviewee at the same time. It is an excellent platform for social marketing.

http://www.facebook.com/groups/238841...

I have my release date for my first book - The Unseen Promise. It will be on the shelves for sale on the 25th of March.
It is a fantasy novel that takes place on a world called Tarkeenia, with an array of colourful characters, some good and some indefinably evil. While others walk its many paths indifferent.
So, I hope you join me on its birth and to follow my story afterwards.
