Islands of Hope Update- 01/12/2018

Can you believe it is December already? Time to get Christmassy! Before all that there are some ‘Islands of Hope’ updates to worry about. I had hoped to complete Chapter 31 this week, but in my job Christmas means loads of extras. I did manage a bigger update than the last few weeks though, about four hundred and fifty words. Martha has made it into Ukrit’s office, but he’s not there. What can she do while she waits? You’ll have to read to find out. You can read Chapter 31 on wattpad by going here, or start from the beginning here.


Islands of Hope Update – 23/11/2018

Between parent’s evenings, badminton matches and parties it has been a very busy week. I feel I have barely spent any time at home and as such have done very little writing. It is another very short update to Islands of Hope therefore, about one hundred and fifty words again. I did say my only plan was to update it every week so I have at least managed that. This update sees Martha heading to Ukrit to confront him as she thinks he is lying. You can read Chapter 31 on wattpad by clicking here, or start from the beginning here. I would like to guarantee a larger update next week but I am afraid I cannot.

Islands of Hope Update – 17/11/2018

Wow! That was a really busy week, extra stuff at work and on a training course. It all means I have barely been online to interact with any of you good souls. It also means that I have done very little writing (although there is a bonus poem coming that I wrote as I was stuck waiting for a train). So the ‘Islands of Hope’ update this week is a mere one hundred and fifty odd words. Sorry about that. I could have written a little more but have offered to write an article for another site so focused on that in my free time. For the moment you can read the start of Chapter 31, about Martha checking out the story Ukrit told her, by going here, or start from the beginning here.

Islands of Hope update – 10/11/2018

Back at work this week, that means hardly any time for writing. So it’s only a small update of around one thousand two hundred words this week….wait….what? How have I written more this week then in total during the two weeks when I was off? Yeah I have been promoting ‘A Close Shave with Destiny’ but that is crazy. Actually there are two reasons; firstly I have not been sleeping well so have gone to bed late every night, and secondly I knew exactly what I wanted to write to finish Chapter 30 so hammered through it. So yeah, this week’s update completes Chapter 30, even better is that I feel back in the story after a few weeks of wanting to do other things. Also, we meet a new main character that was never intended to be a main character, well actually we have met her before but she shouted at me till I let her be a main character (metaphorically speaking!). So yeah, you can read Kira’s escape from the village on wattpad here, or start from the beginning here.

Islands of Hope Update – 03/11/2018

With half term days out, Halloween, fireworks and a horrid cold, it has been a hectic week. That means only a short update to Islands of Hope this week. I know exactly what I want to write but have not found the time to put it down. For now you will have to live with a bit more of Chapter 30 where the archer who brought Kira into the village attempts to free her. Sorry, but that is all for now. Oh yeah, you have until midnight tonight to enter the A Close Shave with Destiny competition, just click here. If you want to read Islands of Hope you can get to Chapter 30 on wattpad here, or start from the beginning here.

Islands of Hope Update – 27/10/2018

What, a blog post that is not about A Close Shave with Destiny? Yep, it has been a crazy few days recently promoting my novella, if you have missed all that then take a look at this post, it will give you some information. Anyway, back to my serial novel. Not a massive update this week as I have been marketing my aforementioned new release, but you still get a little over four hundred and fifty words. This week we are back with Kira, can she escape the village that appears to not believe her (well it is the people in the village, not the village itself, they can’t think, because that would be silly!)? You won’t find out fully this week but there is a plan afoot! You can read the start of Chapter 30 on wattpad here, or start from the beginning here.

Islands of Hope Update – 20/10/2018

Yet again I have written a whole chapter in a week, yet again it is a short one. I managed to write it and have it edited by Wednesday so considered doing a bonus update this week. Instead I focused on furthering some other projects. The great news is that my comedy fantasy novella set in a moustache, ‘A Close Shave with Destiny,’ is ready to be formatted for release. Anyway, back on to ‘Islands of Hope.’ This week’s update is a rather uninspiring one where Eliana is trying, and failing, to contact Kira. It may seem a pointless scene but will become more important later on. For now you can read Chapter 29 on wattpad by going here, or start from the beginning here.
