Small Press & Self-Published / Prince of Fiends by Jake Baelish
« on: September 01, 2018, 05:30:39 AM »
My fantasy novel, PRINCE OF FIENDS, is available on amazon for the low price of $3.99 or FREE on kindleunlimited!

Prince of Fiends is basically a story of Stockholm Syndrome played out in a dark fantasy setting. Read the description below!

An evil long forgotten threatens to be unleashed once again on an unsuspecting kingdom.

Prince Leon Atlantus of the Kingdom of Brahn travels through his father’s lands arrogantly unaware of the looming danger he and his kingdom faces.

Meanwhile, the long-subjugated forces of sorcery seek the prince.

For he is to play a role in the fulfillment of the work of a succession of sorceresses.

When the pampered prince is taken by his enemies, not only must he make tough decisions to protect his own life, but his entire world view is twisted on its head, forcing him to question his beliefs on right and wrong, good and evil.

While the companionship that forms between captors and captive threatens the efforts of friends and foes alike.

Writers' Corner / Chapters: Named or Numbered
« on: September 01, 2016, 02:57:08 AM »
So I am about the write the last chapter of my first draft of a novel. The revision process is looming (after a week or two break). I have a chapter list which I may revise too. But I just wanted to get people's thoughts on something.

Do you generally prefer chapters to have a number only (giving no clue about the chapters content) or do you prefer to have each chapter named?

If you prefer them named, would you list them on the contents pages (like The Lord of the Rings) or not (like Way of Kings)?

Just looking for general opinions here, thanks  :)

Introductions / Hi fellow fantasy fans!

Hi fellow fantasy fans  :)

I am just in the process of completing my first draft of a novel (the first novel I will complete that I actually consider to be 'pretty good') and recently found this forum while preparing for the joy that will be the revision process. At 135,000 words of story it's going to be a tough job, but from what I've read so far this place is going to be very useful and informative, I'm already ultra appreciative of most of what I've read.

My favourite author is Stephen King (although I haven't read anywhere near all of his books and even some of the big ones, IT and The Shining for two), I also love Bernard Cornwell mostly for the Saxon Stories. Favourite books are the Dark Tower series, The Last Kingdom and Saxon Stories, The Talisman, The Lord of the Rings and perhaps less well known series called Captive Prince. 

Outside of writing, I love traveling and reading about history (most places, most times). My BA is in History and I am currently an English teacher in Thailand. The best things about teaching abroad I've found are 1) meeting all kinds of different people, 2) getting to travel so many amazing surrounding countries! and 3) gives a more careful eye for my own grammar fluffs and typos!

Although I live in Bangkok, I am from the greatest city in the world that is Manchester, England (no bias there).

Looking forward to meeting and exchanging ideas with some of you all.
