Meet Sirius Pen

Sirius Pen is just your average boring person, went to college, got a degree, got bored and studied a course on a different field, got a certificate, got bored again and got a postgraduate diploma in another different field, whilst self-studying some different fields of game development … which was fun! But after amassing the necessary skill and building a project up to its later alpha stages, then it happened, the twist. It turns out, video game development requires much, more resources than just skill to make a game that’s at least interesting and the only way around it, is to make something that’s just rushed or meh …! Oh no! The nemesis! The game must be stopped, why? Because, Sirius Pen feels like the legendary designer Shigeru Miyamoto-san used to say ” If it’s not interesting, then why make it?” But luckily for Sirius Pen, Sirius Pen had been working part-time on something, writing a story, which is both fun and exhausting. Then it got scrapped, because working on both games and writing is, well overkill and ridiculously daunting. In 2020 that story was axed, but with nothing else, interesting enough to turn to, Sirius Pen took the pen! No, wait! Sirius Pen meant … the smartphone! After game development was halted in June and the year 2021, writing began, again with the terribly named story ” The girl who helped”, then it got changed to “Estera” and later “SHIMMERS OF ESTERA” and later divided into five parts, what can I say, that little child of a book grew way too fast on countless gruelling revisions that made Sirius Pen sick, well not that dramatically sick, just burnt out, posture stuff, some days of fever and some canker sores, one of which that lasted for about three months, it’s nothing really. Fast forward, April 2022 here we are, Sirius Pen had finished the first two parts of the book and got them published, finally, Sirius Pen has made it to Sirius Pen’s debut as an author! P.S. Sirius Pen hopes you will enjoy this story that tells the journey of little Estera. Thank you!

Meet Kay MacLeod

Authentic characters, innovative abilities, serious snark! Kay MacLeod is a fantasy addict from Nottinghamshire in England. She loves magical worlds and spends much more time in them than that boring real one. If Kay isn’t writing, or thinking about writing, she’ll be immersed in reading, gaming, playing bass at church, or painting miniatures. She grew up addicted to Terry Pratchett books, Magic: The Gathering, and lording it over her fellow nerds as the DM in Dungeons & Dragons games. Fortunately, this gave her plenty of storytelling practice and made her grateful that all the characters do as they’re told now other people aren’t controlling them. Kay’s gaming experience shines through in her works, from the Pokemon-inspired Maiyamon books to her epic fantasy, which readers say has a hint of a Dragon Age tale. With character development at the heart of each story, they’re backed up by distinctive magic systems and a dash of sarcastic humour that gives Kay MacLeod her unique voice.

The Ghost’s Legacy

The Ghost’s Legacy ~

The old world has died.

In the frozen wastes of a new ice age, a boy must become a man. Having forgotten who he is, this youth must accept his destiny to lead, fight, and die if necessary for what he believes . . . or a magic from a lost era will destroy them all.
As a tyrannical empire rises, he and his childhood companions must band together as warriors to battle against savage creatures, an army of zealots, and an evil they are only just beginning to understand . . .

Heirs of BjornsGaard ~

A thousand years ago, on the Day of Cataclysm, the world changed. Mountains rose from plains, continents fell into oceans, colossal tempests obliterated civilizations, and jotun, creatures of legend and superstition, rose up. The New Ice Age began, blanketing the world in snow and an army of draugr, dead warriors, walked the earth destroying every remnant of the old age.

From the ashes, the Church and the Clan BjornsGaard united humanity behind their banners, rallying knights and heroes to face this new world. Under their leadership, mankind overthrew the draugr and retook control of its destiny.

In the centuries since, the Church grew into an empire, controlling most of the continent. Though its origins were noble, the Church State grew based on greed, racism, and slavery. Only two militant orders of knights, the Hospitalars and the Tau, allied with the islands of the BjornsGaard Commonwealth stood against the Church States expanding pogroms. But during the intervening years, the Kings of BjornsGaard had grown corrupt and weak. In one night, the entire family was assassinated, opening the way for the Church to expand spreading its suppression and holocaust.

But in BjornsGaard’s farthest northern island, hope is dawning. In the Hospitalar’s Northern Compound five orphans, physically and intellectually gifted and trained by the Hospitalar knights to fight, to heal, and to reason, grow up together. With a bond tighter than normal siblings and forged stronger by pain and loss, these five will grow to challenge the Church State and accept their destiny as leaders in this new age.

*Disclaimer*
Heirs of BjornsGaard is a clean fantasy adventure series, meaning that there is no sexual content, nudity, or language. However, it does contain some violence and mature subject matter that may not be suitable for younger readers. Discretion is advised.
