A book as an emotional bridge?

It was not always intended that the changeling trilogy, which came to be known as Legend of the Lost, the title of the first book, had an over-arching message. But like many creative projects, it took on a life and direction of its own.

The concept of the family separated by malevolent, dark magic forces was always at the core.

But it’s interesting and humbling that this has taken on different levels of meaning for people.

Reunification and enduring love have become increasingly important themes judging by the dedications requested and touching messages we’ve received to date.

Here’s a sample of some of the feedback that we’ve been very interested and grateful to receive so far:

“Our grandchildren live thousands of miles away now. We miss them very much and have sent them a copy of this lovely book as one of the ways to remind them how much we love them.”

“I have not been as present in the lives of my young niece and nephew and I intend to read this with them over the holidays.”

“I have been prevented from speaking with my step son for years and I’ve sent him a copy of this and hope it’s another reminder of how much we think about and love him here.”

“Slipped a signed copy into our son’s University suitcase. Felt a bit soppy/ But he was really touched.”

“Our daughter has been at the center of an acrimonious split and as she’s not with me all the time now. Having read this, I know she will think about her whole family while exploring it herself.”

“It’s really important to stimulate imagination in children before school sets their minds in stone and this is full of important messages about learning from adventure, making mistakes but growing. None of us are perfect, especially not the grown ups.”

As Legend of the Lost launches worldwide at the end of the month, please do keep the feedback coming in.

If you would like to receive a signed and dedicated copy, then please do┬ácontact us: and we’ll be happy to sort that out for you or loved ones, while stocks last.

A second taste of Legend of the Lost?

In honour of the arrival of the first batch of first editions from the printer, where we’re proud to say everything was locally sourced and produced, we thought we’d share another exclusive excerpt with our social media followers.

So if you’re sitting comfortably……

Everything about the beautifully twisted creatures at her command reeked of her malevolence and bleak revenge.

They embodied her thoughts as they snickered, snarled and howled their way down the long-forgotten passageway connecting the darkest part of the dark downs to the centre of the castle, the former domain of the Black Prince.

This vengeance had been decades in the making. And it would be all the more fulfilling for the tortuous wait.

This would be justice for the outcasts, revenge against the race that had treated her own mother so cruelly, that had destroyed her own family and that had now abused, polluted and neglected the creatures of the forest and the fields where they lived.”

….we can’t share much more without there being some sort of “spoiler” as there’s so much action packed into the pages.

But if you want to grab your copy before they go on general release at the month end then be sure to go to the Book Guild online shop today or, contact us for one of the last few remaining advance copies and beat your friends to it……….
