Untitled Part 1

‘He had reddened around the edges. A little long in the tooth and a tad worn on the brow. But despite a fickle complexion which seemed to neither like nor acurately represent him, Nathan was filled with bristling energy that the best of his days were yet to come. 

With languid eyes he pored over the maps he had assembled, consulted his many notebooks, and took another swig of the bitter but cold beer he’d ordered in the cafe. The clatter of the street his table was damn near in the middle of rather than elegantly skirting was free from most of the buzz Nathan had come accustomed to during his so far shortened stay. Paris was quiet, and this was suspicious. 

But he’d dallied there long enough, and as he drank down the last swallow from the dull amber bottle, the piercing chink! sound of the glass hitting the steel table as he set it back down there and made to leave was like a starter’s pistol signalling the beginning of this new adventure …’ S.H.

Dally Here

Just as it says in the title – take a little break, will you? Slow yourself and spend some time listening to me … Isn’t this what one MUST say, even when thinking they set only a mere and polite request to another to look at their work? It’s a crowded box of screams out there, near 2000 decibels. And who can scream the loudest gets the proverbial boob. Because that’s kind of what it is, isn’t it? Calling out for sustinance? “Please, oh please, give me a little warmth!”

In all actuality, it depends on your structure, your makeup. If you’re in the writing biz for the right reasons, you don’t need nor care for the attention of others. HOWEVER, and it’s a large and godawful however, wouldn’t it be nice to be paid well for ones art? And this being so, it doesn’t always happen while cracking on – like anything else, you’ve got to scream a little with the rest of them – “Me! Some please for ME!”

To dally means to slow down, to halt your pace a little on the 100-mile-an-hour freeway of life and spend a little time looking at what I’ve got. Delving a tiny bit into my stories and and my world … And then that’s only a look. The next step is turning a window shopper into a customer, a patron, a fan … The lengths can be somewhat endless, and the means maddening and many. But if you are here, and you did stop, well, the lengths of which one needs to go to display gratitude are also boundless and vast. For now, I’ll just say THANKS πŸ™‚ S.H.

Yet Another 24hr Giveaway

Annndddd here’s another free kindle book for you all, but only for one day! EDGE OF REALITY, the first book in my new hospital drama slash paranormal fantasy series is free at Amazon by CLICKING HERE!

The story is about Stanley, a self-admitted psychiatric patient, who begins on his journey to try and convince others within the hospital to help protect his daughter when she is eleven years old.  The only catch is – she hasn’t been born yet … 

If this sounds interesting, please do take a look. It’s really easy to follow the link and pick up the book straight from Amazon. And also, if you do grab it, a SUPER MASSIVE PLEASE could you leave a little review on Amazon too? Even if it’s just picking a score out of five stars … It is INCREDIBLE how much of a difference it makes to the exposure for an indie author like myself to get reviews on Amazon. For example, if a title reaches 50 reviews in the store, the chances of the book being automatically exposed to many other readers is dramatically increased! So please, please, PLEASE – if you have received any of my books for free, think about returning the favour a little and dropping that review down πŸ™‚ A hearty thanks in advance πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜œ S.H.

Another delightful little review for EWAN PENDLE … πŸ˜€

Author Kayla Krantz

Title: Ewan Pendle and the White Wraith

Author: Shaun Hume

Summary

β€˜ … Hume does a MAGNIFICENT job of building a completely different world … β€˜ – Fire and Rain Books

β€˜If you’re suffering from HARRY POTTER withdrawals, then look no further! This intriguing, emotive and vividly told story is the answer!’ – Independent Reviewer

Ewan Pendle was weird. Really weird. At least, that’s what everyone told him. Then again, being able to see monsters that no one else could wasn’t exactly normal.

Thinking he has been moved off to live with his eleventh foster family, Ewan is instead told he is a Lenitnes, one of an ancient race of peoples who can alone see the real Creatures which inhabit the earth. He is taken in by Enola, the mysterious sword carrying Grand Master of Firedrake Lyceum, a labyrinth of halls and rooms in the middle of London…
