Cover of part three

I cannot hold it back any longer, I simply have to show you all the beginning masterpiece of Max. He has caught the moment and the mood of the cover for part three so well that I almost feel being on that wall myself fighting beside Rimyar for the capture of the fortress.Claws of the Earth 3 design copy

Writing

How can life be better then sitting behind your desk, listening to the wonderful music of Mike Oldfield, or Ennio Morricone, having a nice drink, hearing the rain drum on the roof, and writing your book? The whole world around you vanishes as you are sucked into the world you are creating with simple words on paper, a world that is so completely different and far more exiting than the world we are presently living in.

All your everyday worries about how to pay your bills, that nasty manager at work, your car that needs to go the garage are simply non-existent anymore as you wonder through great forests where all kinds of unknown creatures as living, or roaming through castles with many rooms and thick walls. You can hear and see the people of the created world walking around, smell it, almost taste it as you are putting it to paper.

Is there anything more wonderful than that? I wonder about that sometimes. I Always feel most happy when in the environment I described above, to be lost in your own world where nobody can touch you.

Major problem is to make other people read it, but that doesn’t matter I will somply go on publishing my world and hope that those that do read it can also forget their everyday problems for a few hours.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A teaser from part III

final coverAs they reached the church the magic user felt the awesome power radiating from within and braced herself. A firestorm spell ready she nodded to the soldiers holding the doors that they pushed open. Immediately streams of fire were poured into the church where benches and tapestries caught flame.

The magic user was assaulted by a hideaous reptilian creature and needed a few moments to pull herself together again as she staggered on her feet. One of the pump crews noticed that she was in trouble and aimed straight into the hood of the man high statue. The unexpected burst of flame filled the hood entirely ending the attack on the magic user as sudden as it had begun.

She released the spell she had ready and engulfed half the interior of the church into a raging sea of flames.

Alone she heard the hate filled cry that came from the statue as she squeezed her fist to shatter the empty hood. Because of the raging flames no one saw the substantial green purple cloud escaping from the statue, trying to avoid the flames that surrounded it. It flew up into the soaring heat, but found no way out, it was trapped.
