I'm back!!! 'Keep your light bright' - A Carpet of Purple Flowers

A Carpet of Purple Flowers
(New Adult - Paranormal Romance)

'A Different kind of Love Story'

Hi everyone.

I wanted to create a post as I realise that they have been becoming less frequent over the past few months. I just really wanted you to know that I haven't forgotten any of you.

It would be great if you would take the time to pop over and follow my new book page - HERE
Website HERE
I will be placing updates on books release, etc there.
Thank you beautiful people x

Well, it has been quite a slog trying to get the manuscript ready for publishing, and finally, I'm almost there - Yay! I have given the blurb details below, and a little write up of how the story came to be. 
Please feel free to leave me a message, it would be great to receive some feedback, and a follow ;o) 

‘Every unknown is a beginning’

Bea lives a simple life residing in a SW London second-hand bookshop. It had been an especially difficult year, first with her uncle dying, then splitting up with Brandon, her philandering, druggie boyfriend. The shops trivial daily conversations, local faces and calm was all she desired, but that was all about to change.

No-one expects to bump into supernatural beings, let alone two opposing sects of a forgotten race. Bea’s quiet existence turns into turmoil as she slowly starts to unravel a secret past. A lost history in which love, revenge, betrayal, magic, power and karma are not mere cycles of a soul, but a sacred journey upon a web of many possibilities.

The future is not set in stone, and the choices that she makes ripple through the cosmos. As the secret unfolds she realises that no matter what form your soul takes there are consequences for ones actions in which time has no relevance – we call it karma, they call it Vororbla.

Will she cope with the heartbreak and truths before her?
 What would you do if your very existence came into question? 
Join Bea as she uncovers the truth of her past via a carpet of purple flowers.

Once I started to place pen to paper, the story began to grow into a much greater tale. Maybe, every creative whimsy that I have ever envisaged and not acted on has waited until now… to be brought to life.

My mind raced, as folklore came entwined with love, fate entwined with choice, science entwined with spiritual teachings - all guiding me to write a romance that revolves around a karmic cycle.

Let me share with you, a secret place in which only a parted veil exposes. To an ethereal plane in which otherworldly, angelic, type beings, tend to a well of souls.

In the book, I take the reader on a brief, visual journey to the home of these elementals called, 'The Sindria', their realm, 'Calageata'. It is here, that the purple flower of Vororbla grows, emitting a thick mist ready to greet the essence of a soul.

What keeps us going when the world can feel so harsh?

Where do we draw our strength from in times of need?

What urges us to carry on, when things become extremely overwhelming, and too much to bear?

We all know the answer... it comes from within.

Somewhere, deep inside, a light refuses to fade.

This light (our inner strength), may become less bright for a time, but in its fading, it is re-energising, and will again awaken from sleep.

Once, our inner light screams out its very last ray of hope - the sleeping energy awakes, re-igniting the inner, dimming ray.

Reminiscent of the illuminating birth of a far away star, and from apparent nothingness, wondrous brightness can evolve.

The Sindria (elementals) teach… 'To be able to shine brightly, ones light must first fade.’ 

In the book, I mention to 'keep your light bright', as we have all experienced at some point in our lives, a time when nothing makes sense, and I really wanted to send out an important message to my readers – that you are so much more than what you initially see, and to remember, a fading light, secretly, masks eternity.

Love and light
