I mentioned a while ago that Thomas Livesey (better known as xthedarkone) had done the narration for The Sword Summoner‘s audiobookversion and that a video of the first chapter would be uploaded onto Youtube. I’m a little late but here it is.
Story by Matthew Roys, narration by Thomas Livesey and art by Dawn Sckufca.
In my eternal quest to succeed in writing I have submitted The Sword Summoner: History Repeats into Inkitt’s fantasy story competition. The entire novel is on their site. If you have yet to read it, now is your chance to check it out in full for FREE.
The way the competition works is that readers vote on their favourite stories and the 10% with the highest votes gets through to be judged by Inkitt staff. The winner of that round is offered a publishing deal.
So if you wonderful people could go to http://www.inkitt.com/stories/39375 and click the little heart at the bottom of the screen then that would be a great help to me.
So head over to Inkitt, read The Sword Summoner if you want to and please give it your vote. Thank you all dearly.

This is a quick update just to let everyone know whereabouts I am with potential books. Since I’ve started back at university my pace has slowed a bit due to the workload but I am still making fair progress.
For those of you wondering about book two in ‘The Sword Summoner’ series, both it and book three have been written as a first draft but are in need of a lot of editing and changing. This is because I wrote all three back to back then went back to ‘History Repeats’ and basically re-wrote it so many of the story details in the sequels no longer match up. Continue reading
Here is the first chapter of my book to give y’all a taster. It does get darker and more ‘Fantasy’ oriented, I swear. Enjoy.

1: An Average Day Gone Astray.
Birds scattered as the old morning bell began to toll, its deep echoes ringing throughout the ancient city of Pastrino.

Trey did not move. His cheap woollen cover was wrapped tightly around him like a cocoon even though it was the middle of summer.
His mother called again. “Trey, get up now or you’ll be sorry.” Still he lay motionless. “I warned you, Trey.” Continue reading
