IT IS HERE. The Bonding Crystal is available in paperback!

And to give you a taste of what you are missing here is 
an excerpt from:
Released in paperback on 14 February 2014.

Robby looked over his shoulder and saw one of the snufflers getting down on his hands and knees to crawl into the bush where he and Abigail lay. He glanced at Abigail's terrified face as she lay in a tight protective ball next to him. The goblin was still sniffing the ground as he came and Robby drew his legs up as Abigail had done. He waited until the grappling fingers were within reach of his foot and then kicked out with all his might. He felt the sole of his boot connect with flesh and bone and the goblin let out a howl of pain. Instantly the others stormed the bush. Abigail and Robby got to their knees and began to crawl. Branches tore Robby’s skin and clothes as they scrambled through the bush toward a gap in the ring of goblins. Pulling himself free and grabbing Abigail tightly by the hand he stood up and started to run. The goblins saw them at once and with a howl of delight gave chase. Robby and Abigail had gone no further than a few metres when he felt grasping fingers clutching at his robes. Abigail screamed and fell to the ground with a goblin
holding her ankle. Robby turned to face them at the same time the ear-splitting scream of an angry dragon came from above. The goblins hesitated and looked up as Frenzel descended bellowing his rage. The sound and sight of an angry dragon was awesome. Robby instinctively threw his arms over his head and crouched low to the ground. Frenzel dove into the midst of the goblins closest to Robby and Abigail. Some were almost man high, yet the way Frenzel threw them aside they could be no more than straw dolls. Even in his terror Robby was astonished at Frenzel’s strength and realized he hadn’t fully appreciated his power until now. Keeping low Robby launched himself at the goblin holding Abigail. Wrapping his arms around the goblin’s neck he kicked at the back of his legs trying to over balance him, but he hadn’t the strength of Frenzel. The goblin stood firm and roared his anger. A second goblin came to help and Robby was grabbed in hands like claws, pulled away from Abigail’s attacker and held firm. He and Abigail were dragged to the shelter of the trees where Frenzel could no longer defend them. Robby could do nothing but watch helplessly as Frenzel continued to fight alone.

In-depth interview on Smashwords.

Hi everyone. I have just had published an in-depth Question and Answer interview on Smashwords. I thought a good way to celebrate the release of The Bonding Crystal  as a paperback would be to share some of my dark secrets. Here is a sample;
Describe your desk
Well, my desk is large and neat with everything in its place. A picture of order in fact. But that is because I rarely use it! My work place of choice is my kitchen table, unfortunately a round table which makes it a bit awkward to work at and it is usually littered with bits of paper scribbled with 'great ideas' and 'maybe come in handy' snippets, and a kitten or probably two. The kittens are the reason I work at the kitchen table. I often have kittens to look after and don't like leaving them alone for days on end when I get immersed in writing. In fact I have a little white girl tugging at my sleeve demanding attention as I type - and then retype.
What are you working on next?
It is a bit of a change of pace for me as I am working on a non fiction book called The Wheel of the Year. It is based on the eight festivals, or Sabbats in the Pagan year which date back to pre-Christian times and are linked to the changing of the seasons.
I give an outline of the festivals as celebrated by modern Pagans along with their history and ways in which they can be celebrated today. I have used my many years experience as a practising Pagan to provided enough information to satisfy most early seekers without getting lost in detail. It will provide a solid base from where the reader can build on their knowledge.
Take a look here for more and let me know if there are other questions you would like to ask. 

The Bonding Crystal will be available at createspace  from tomorrow 14 February and shortly after at amazon
