Siân’s Sunday Mooch

No! You’re not dreaming 😀 I’m mooching 24 hours earlier than normal and… I’ll be mooching nearly every day this week (except Friday ‘cos that’s my day off and Telly will take over the reins then) BECAUSE.. Todays the day that we officially launch –

A Freebooter’s Fantasy Almanac!

AFFA-rgbWEBYes! Click away on the Amazon link all those of you like to read on Kindles – 😀 There’s everything you could want on there now, although we are still waiting on the Foreword, which is why there’s no paperback edition just yet! We couldn’t wait to get the book out to you, is the reason we’re going out ever so slightly incomplete in eBook format. Of course, that’s the beauty of the form, because it can be updated in the drop of the proverbial hat.

I’m trying to do something approaching the Barbara Cartland thing just now and sitting at the keyboard (not Barbara), swigging a Buck’s Fizz (very Barbara!) with a view to topping it up at regular periods for the rest of the day! 😉

To celebrate the launch I’m also starting on a little blog voyage (well tour, but I’m freebooting, so it HAS to be a voyage doesn’t it! 😉 ). It’s been sponsored by my lovely friends at

4WillsPublishing

(click for the full itinerary of the voyage PLUS goodies giveaway news!)*

Today me hearties (see I really was drinking Buck’s Fizz! 😛 ) our first port of call is with

Harmony Kent Online

for the first masterclass instalment on how to Fantasy Freeboot, which is something of a scene-setter, but there’ll be roleplay tips aplenty along the way, including some of the sillier stuff that Telly gets up to later on in the voyage. If you miss any of the shore trips this week then they’ll all go up the day after on the official

Freebooter’s Fantasy Almanac blogsite

to be saved for posterity 😉

Time for another drinkie – then I’m off to spread this all over Twitter and FaceBorg

*OK – I won’t make make you wait…

  1. I can’t quite understand what you mean by freebooting, Jan. I looked it up, and it said something like infringement of copy right. Is your Almanac one that infringes on copy rights? 😦 Is it okay to get a copy while it is not completed?

    • Hi Joy – answer to the first question on copyright infringement is a resounding NO!.The book is about roleplaying and writing in Tolkien fan communities, but, because I’ve not used any of the character or place names from the original books or films, and only told my own character’s story, it doesn’t break any copyright issues for the Tolkien Estate. 🙂
      Relating to the second point – at present we’re only missing a Foreword which is still being written. Because that’s not integral to the book, you’re not missing anything vital to the plotline thread, except a couple of pages of short commentary from the writer of my character’s husband.
      Remember that I’m putting this on Kindle Countdown from July 18th so it’ll be 99 cents soon 😉
