Instagram and news roundup: Art contest and more

It’s been a zany week for a number of reasons, here’s a quick roundup!

 

hypnosis

I was at Norwich Kitty networking where Chris from True Focus Hypnotherapy did a quick demo of hypnosis. For me I was keen to try it due to having a psychic character and a general fascination with how the mind works- what was surprising was I was conscious of everything as it happened, even when I couldn’t drink or remember my name!

Just a quick reminder that the Halloween contest is still on- we’ve had a couple of awesome entries from Leolionz and Haymaker Studios but don’t worry there’s still time to get an entry in (Big thanks to Susie for providing the colouring in page as well!)

 

Finally please remember the Perfect Platinum Collection is up now (click here for the Amazon page). I’m super grateful to Jess, Rachel, Jed, Nicholas, Van and everyone who contributed to this. For me the story is more personal than you’ll know and I am so impressed with the work that went into it.

We are looking for reviewers for this, email reynardcity@gmail.com for more info (for obvious reasons we need limited numbers for this as we are looking to sell copies as much as possible to raise money for the relaunch so free copies will be on a first come, first served basis)

The Perfect Platinum Collection

One question we have had is about what would happen with the older issues. What we have decided to is present a few in collections like this one in order to showcase different plots/themes. Our first is The Perfect Platinum Collection.

What is The Perfect Platinum Collection?

I’ve always been a big fan of graphic novel collections that feature a running story. In this instance the story is about Sal aka Wondervixen. She has been struggling with voices in her head and nightmares from her past.

But an unfortunate incident at a concert changes everything, forcing her to confront her past in a very real and literal way.

The collection includes all the issues from Issue 16 (Rock and Load) through to Issue 21 (Subconscious Pt 2) and features work from awesome artists such as Susie Gander, Jed Soriano, Dan Butcher and Nicholas Webb, as well as the bonus issues Revelation and Chubby Little Secret.

Why should I get it?

As well as the issues we also have a bonus story by contest winner Van Hikari, as well as interviews with artists and Reynard City contributors on the character Wondervixen.

Also the big thing is the more we can sell of this the more money goes to our artists and the sooner we can get Reynard City Chronicles up and running.

Where can I get it?

For now Patreon backers can get it (click here) or you can donate £3 to our Paypal and you will receive it in your inbox. We are looking at options for hosting it and will update with links later on. If you would like to know more email reynardcity@gmail.com

Alternatively you can also download it through Amazon (more info here)

Saving Gabriel review

Zoe's latest work Saving Gabriel out now, get it here http://www.kobobooks.com/ebook/Saving-Gabriel/book-oA3e8ni1XUSGkUytd-KhtQ/page1.html?s=C0vDB0MM2ESGtKCxoq8o8g&r=9

Saving Gabriel

 

Supernatural romantic dramas are nothing new and indeed with the likes of Twilight are probably more popular than ever. There have also been films and TV shows concerning the business of angels. What you don’t see too often is the combination of the two.

 

Saving Gabriel is a mixture of the two genres but author Zoe E.Whitten traverses both these genres without the story feeling disjointed. This is partially achieved by having two narrators in the first person, giving us two different perspectives on the events (but at the same time not repeating herself too much, ensuring we maintain our interest).

 

The thing that fascinates me personally most about the story was the nature of the supernatural world. Any scriptwriting student learns about the rules of a story and fantasy is one of the most stringent genres of all. You need to establish clear rules of how the magic and supernatural elements work in order for people to work with it.

 

Thankfully Zoe does this by clearly showing how the ranks of the supernatural world work. While the central murder mystery of the story is fascinating, the idea of an organisation of angels that assesses the morality of the supernatural beings and their interaction of humanity is fascinating.

 

The other side of this (and for some readers this is likely to be the most controversial) is the presentation of Lucifer. Lucifer in this story is indeed evil but we get the idea that he is almost super-rational, his charm and schemes making him a fascinating villain in the way that the Devil should be!

 

This makes the book sound very serious. However it has some hilarious description such as “sexy spelunking” and the banter between characters is a light relief from the philosophical central themes of love and loss, murder and morality.

 

In short I think this is a fascinating story that engages from start to finish and was truly satisfying to read. And the tease at the end gives hope for more intriguing stories to come!

Zoe E.Whitten Guest Blog

Zoe E. Whitten is a committed author and independent book reviewer. You can order her book Saving Gabriel here 
What is the book about?
Saving Gabriel is a dark fantasy with a mystery revolving around the main characters, Gabriel, a fallen guardian angel, and Rosalinda Fernandez, a young woman who Gabriel has assigned himself to. Another fallen angel attempts to sacrifice Rosalinda, and after saving her and trying to cover up the crime, Gabriel is tasked by the archangel council to find out the reason for this failed magic spell.
Who/what are your influences?
I’ve got a lot of influences at this point, since I read from multiple genres. I’m inspired as much by the books I read as I am by listening to music or reading the news. My head’s a bit like a blender, and all of these ideas get swirled together until a new story idea comes out.
 Would you say there is a target audience for the book and if so who?
Saving Gabriel is probably my most accessible work in a long time, and it’s probably the first time I’ve written something that feels like a good fit for mainstream readers. I’m calling the book YA dark fantasy, but I think adult readers will also enjoy the story and the characters.

 How often do you write?

That really depends on whether my muse and I are on speaking terms. I know lots of writers say write every day, but when I do that, I end up with a lot of trunk material that I never finish. I much rather prefer to write while I feel the right words are in me. Then, I can write every day and crank out a full story in three weeks. But in between my projects are often two and three week periods where I don’t write anything. I’m not saying my method would work for others, but I have a rather huge back catalog at this point, so I speak with authority when I say it’s worked out well for me.
 What tips do you have for people who want to write?
I think there are two types of people who want to write. There are those who think writing is some mystical craft, and that forming words from the ether requires total silence and absolute concentration. So for those people, they will never write anything, because “who can find time to write without distractions?” The straightforward answer is “Every writer, from the pros to the fan-fiction scribes, has made time to write.”
You don’t find time to write. You get greedy and demand time to sit down and make up words. You keep making up words until you get to a point where the last two most logical words are “The End.” Then you set that story off to the side with intentions of fixing your mistakes, and you write something else.
Then there are people who do make time for hobbies, and who could write, if only they had some inspiration. To those people, I say, read more. Eventually, something you read is going to click with you, and you’ll say, “I want to make a story like this, but different.”
It’s even better to read stuff you might not normally consider trying. If all you’ve read is westerns, why not try out some high fantasy, or maybe a historical romance? It gives you the chance to see how writers in other fields approach the same common scenes, and it helps build your own sense of a narrative voice. So if you want to write, but don’t yet feel any words worth committing to paper, pick up some books and let the words of others fill you until you’ve got an idea of your own.

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party?

John A. Lindqvist, Stephenie Meyer, and Anne Rice. There would be lots of booze after dinner, and I would try very hard not to be reduced to giddy gushing.

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?
Probably doing the same things I’m doing now, but hopefully with a higher degree of success in the promotions department. I’d fire my current promoter and hire someone more qualified, but I’m the only person I know willing to work for rates so cheap.

Who would play you in the film of your life?

I cannot for any reason imagine anyone wanting to make a movie of my life, or anyone wanting to sit through it,so I really have no idea who I’d want to play me. Maybe someone with messy hair, I guess.
