Seer Releases Aug 31st!
I haven’t been around much and I owe my blog readers a little apology. My second book has taken it’s toll on my time and continues to eat up hours that I would normally spend here writing. I am hoping that you will find that patience pays off as the final version of Seer goes on sale at Amazon.
The adventure continues in this new fantasy, where dragons fly high and morgith dot the skies! I hope you will join me in Marithe for the release of Seer!
Read It Or Eat IT!
Always hungry, the Dragon searches his lair for a treat. He roars and the book shelves rattle and shake depositing one title near the cook pot. Sage, Book 1 Fall of Onagros— a recent released by Marian Allen lies within reach of sharp claws. SHOULD HE READ IT…OR EAT IT?
Let’s digest a little of the contents…
The book is staged in a fantasy world where myths and belief systems are very different from the Dragon’s own. A medieval world is controlled by a matriarchal society. The kingdom is at risk, but there is still an heir loose to regain the throne. The ruling woman is routed by her male consort. By sheer accident or the demands of unknown fate, her offspring survives the man’s conniving plans and the intrigue begins.
Pros and Cons of Cooking—
- There are DRAGONS in the story!!!
- The book is well written and flows at a smooth rhythm.
- There are descriptions of breakfast.
- The unique world is well developed and described.
- The characters are interesting.
- There are many many characters with their own system of names and the Dragon is not sure who to consider eating.
- There is a tortoise that might make good soup, but the Dragon is not all that fond of soup.
The Dragon says save this book for reading. Although a tasty treat, it will be much better consumed by the mind. This is an entertaining novel. Buy it! !!!!ROAR!!!! It can be found at Amazon and where all
Marian can be located in her castle on facebook, twitter or blog.
You will find an excerpt here from Book 3 on her blog!

Weekend Warriors – A Seer Excerpt
Mirandra is a talented fortuneteller. In this scene she faces one of her greatest challenges –
“She will agree to wed,” the soothsayer spoke slowly. “The knight will be captured,” Mirandra added a small gristle for the man to chew as she wrested her hand from his strong hold.
Knowing it would not be wise to remain in concealment with this assassin, Mirandra slipped blithely backwards returning to the monk’s court. She had earned ten gold pieces— no point in now losing her life. The Seer quickly joined the throng of mourners gathered in the cathedral. She followed the chanting procession toward the closed coffer, camouflaged by the excessive number of people in black clothing. Along with the multitude of mourning citizens, the gypsy princess offered her prayer for the lost king. Approaching the remains, Mirandra felt the tingling of a vision. Dear heavens, not now! Her steps faltered as she saw King Sert, his arms outstretched to her. The King of Kareth pleaded to her… a mere gypsy. In that instant there was no doubt in her mind that he had been murdered, and she alone could identify his killer.
Seer, Book 2 The Chronicles of Marithe, will be available August 31st on Amazon!

Read It Or Eat IT!
Today is a rather unusual day for the Dragon…He has devoured much of his own work and finds his stomach very full.
The cook pot is boiling and Seer lies upside-down by the Dragon’s bloated tummy. “Enough!” He is heard to growl loudly. “The book is almost ready to share!”
The story is a dual theme of reality and fantasy. Xavier, a young gamer with a curse, must find a way to survive as a knight in a world filled with demons and dragons. There is only one thing he truly seeks–the love of a princess.
A Steaming Cup of Baya!
Pros and Cons of cooking–
- It has plenty of Dragons.
- It has tasty gypsy dancers
- Baya, a Glahee Gypsy drink sounds a lot like coffee
- the story really works up a hungry appetite
- the insane mind of Patrick O’Scheen flows clearly in each line
the Dragon says: “ROAR!!!! Don’t even think about eating it! You will enjoy this book!! It will be on sale soon at Amazon and all the other fine
gypsy eateries places books are sold!!!”
The Dragon can be found right here!!! Roar!!!
Set the World On Fire!
It’s time to open the curtain and reveal the cover for Seer today!!!
This amazing work by Mathew Riggenbach at Shaed Studios, touches the imagination. Without further ado I give you Seer, Book 2, The Chronicles of Marithe—-
The world of Marithe is back! The story of a young gamer named Xavier is woven into a plot of denial, betrayal and intrigue. He lives a double life running from those who would use him and searching for unencumbered love. Demons, dragons, and gypsies fill the game panorama entangling Xavier in a disaster that could destroy the dragon race and profoundly change his world….
Seer will release on Amazon as an e-book and paper back on August 31, 2013!
Sometimes I Can’t Quite Stop the Smoke
Funny that sometimes I am angry deep down inside. It really isn’t like me – not my personality. I think maybe it is the side effect of illness or medication, but I am responsible for my emotions and my life. A little bit of the Dragon slips out and before I know it I am spitting fire and can’t quite stop the smoke or the collateral damage.
Lately I have become a very quiet person. I do at times wonder if my silence fuels the anger, but the idea is irrelevant. I will not explode.
I can do what all Dragons must— find my internal center, say my prayers, look for calm. Otherwise we are out burning down villages, ruining lives and making things unpleasant for everyone. Anger has no place ruling a dragon’s life. Give it up.
