I'm still too attached to paper books to buy an eReader - but you can bet I've been trying to win one in free sweepstakes. The digital book world is immense and I'm just starting to explore it. Karla, a fellow Fantasy Artist of Etsy, recently introduced me to the writings of her husband, Ian Hall. He is not confined by genres, having equal success in Historical adventure, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror and hard hitting gritty crime. He even writes self-help books for writers! After looking inside his "Why You Should Write e-Books, e-Novels, e-Shorts", I'm tempted to revisit my childhood dream of becoming an author. I have been awfully interested in zombies lately, so his "How To Write Your Own Zombie Novel" advice could feed my brain nicely.
Ian is currently working on his Caledonii: Birth of a Nation series. He just released the fourth part, and each is over 100 pages long. The story begins in 74 AD. The Roman Legions have held control of Southern Britain for 19 years. In that time they have solidified their hold, and put down tribal rebellions by Boudicca of the Icenii, and Venutius of the Brigantes. With the tribes pacified at their backs, the Romans advance their roads northward, with their goal: the conquest of the whole of the British Isles. The Northern Druids, realizing this, have arranged a meeting of all seventeen tribal, or clan, chiefs. Amidst the bitter local rivalries, and deep-scored bickering, the Druids try to unite the clans together to face the oncoming Roman threat.
