#NEWS – Summoning My Superpowers – Writing/Editing The Curse of Time Book Two – Golden Healer.

Hi all,

Some of my more regular blog visitors might have noticed that I haven’t been posting, commentating, engaging in social media, etc, as much recently. This pains me a lot. Sigh. But, sadly this will continue indefinitely while I am writing/editing the second book in the series The Curse of Time. I can’t write, blog, and work  in a demanding full-time job – it is just not possible.

I know that I profess to have magical powers but I am feeling the pinch. My superpowers aren’t holding up well. I am in desperate need of a magic wand to give me energy. Quite by chance I found this in the Botanic Gardens in Cambridge. It’s a bit small but I like the snake-like look to it. The top pic shows its eye well and the bottom one its mouth!

Abracadabara!!!

So bear with me. Don’t desert me!

I am very excited about the progress of the second book in the series. All I can divulge for now is: expect a cruel rollercoaster ride, a crazy grasshopper who natters incessantly and some seriously odd shadow demons.

Ha ha… my mind works in some crazy ways…

There will be the same cast of characters from book one:  Amelina, Ryder, Esme, The Mirror Girl, The Creature Eruterac, Kyle, Amelina’s friends: Jade, Ilaria and Joselyn plus Shadow the cat, Toby the dog, The Spirit, and of course Amelina’s mum and dad and her dear aunt Karissa…

Yes quite a cast!

Recently I was tagged by Vashti Vega on twitter @VashtiQV who I’d cast as the leads in my book… I chose Tyler Posey, Dakota Fanning, Amanda Seyfried, and Colton Haynes.

 

5 Star Review News

I now have several reviews for The Curse of Time Book One Bloodstone on Goodreads and Amazon. My last two reviews were both five stars which made me do a double happy dance. This has really encouraged me to press on with this series.

Thank you to Galit for this awesome 5 star review: https://coffeennotes.wordpress.com/2018/08/12/book-review-the-curse-of-time-bloodstone1-by-m-j-mallon/

Thank you so much to Linda and Richard for featuring me. Really appreciate it. 🙂 x

What are my other plans?

I will be focussing on writing my reviews on books I am reading – which I love to do! It makes me very happy to read and to share my thoughts with other readers/reviewers. I have several review requests which I have to catch up on and I will be reblogging book-related posts and anything which might be of interest to my readers.

Oh and recently I’ve been on a bit of a winning streak.

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  1. I have also had to cut back a bit on blogging recently, Marje. I am also struggling with a full time job, two sons and trying to write my new book Nemesis which is a much bigger undertaking for me. Good luck with the juggling.

  2. That’s great to hear Marje so you’re so busy writing the second book!!! It’s very interesting and I am so glad that you are well motivated and encouraged to go on with this beautiful series! Hmm I guess we need to get together to plan some illustrations 😉

    1. Hi Carolina. Yes I am starting to think about illustrations but it will be a good while yet. Still so much to do. I’m snatching time to edit when I can. Working full-time is limiting my writing time to weekends. But the positive reviews are spurring me on! :~)

      1. That’s great and yes of course I know you’re not there yet it will take time but is always good to have ideas while in the process and not at last, you can develop a better idea of what would be the visual part! I am so happy about the positive feelings and the great reviews! <3

  3. I would never desert you ,ever! I think you are doing marvelously. I don’t know how you manage it all. I have not half the commitments you have but I sinking fast so hats off to you my dear blog sister well done you 💜🌹🤗

  4. Hi Marj I haven’t got to your book yet it sits in my Library waiting for its turn. I will review when done mark my words. If you need more time to write my stream of consciousness ‘notice to write’ could be just what is required. HAPPY WRITING.

    1. Hi Ellen. Hope you enjoy The Curse of Time and thank you for your kind offer to review when you get a chance. I know what you mean by having a lot of books on your TBR shelf. All the best. Happy reading and writing. 🙂

  5. So good to hear you’re busy writing book 2, Marje. Good luck with it.
    And it was so good and refreshing that you didn’t apologise for not being able to keep up with stuff it’s impossible to do when you’re so busy. You’ve done the right thing by giving your readers an update here and not apologising for your absence.
    Keep up the great work you’re doing.

    1. Hi Hugh. Thanks for your kind words. I must admit to feeling overwhelmed at the moment so have to be honest with myself and my readers about what I can do. Hope all is going well with you. Marje x

  6. Thanks for the updates Marje. Our silence usually means we’re intently working on another masterpiece lol. Good for you to be so disciplined and congrats on your upcoming 2nd book! <3
