Ok lots of news today! The last few days have been great fun creating a book trailer, and it’s still only quarter way through. There is a lot of work left to animate but I hopefully will be done after the weekend. The music is licensed, the extracts are recorded (by myself, not to sure about that but it’s ok) and the backgrounds created, I just need to animate the text which is so much fun.
Also I have had my first non family member review all the way from Australia! It is featured on Authors ally, (here is the link) and gives a wonderful overview and insights into the story. You can follow the link (here) for the full review, but for an extract

And that’s it. I am getting good feedback from people who have read a little so far, and its looking positive. Some frightening moments though! Oops. I am curious how people will feel after reading it in entirety. All the feedback I receive will help shape book two, and three, and four.
