Club Fantasci Co-Host and Author Dionne Lister interviews with “Book View” Host Denis Campbell about her book “Shadows of the Realm.” Please watch it here and leave comments!
Today we have a guest blogger with us, Indie author Dionne Lister. I hope you enjoy getting to know more about her and The Circle Of Talia fantasy series. I met Dionne for the first time on Twitter through another Indie author K.A Last. Kim happened to be posting about her book or something and I decided to investigate further. I love fantasy and wanted to know what her books were about. I fell in LOVE with her book covers. Gorgeous! I am currently reading book one in her series and will report back once I am finished. Enjoy the interview! I just found out that the first book in the series, Shadows of the Realm, has been nominated in the 2013 eFestival of Words Awards! Congrats Dionne!

Please give us a peek into your writing life. How much time each week do you spend writing? Is your desk messy or clean? Do you have a schedule or are you sporadic? What helps you stay motivated? I have a messy desk, but I write in an armchair with my laptop on my lap. if I’m determined to finish a book, I’ll manage 3-4 hours a day but I haven’t written anything for 3 weeks after releasing my sequel to Shadows of the Realm because I needed a break. So I guess you could say I’m sporadic. I’m finishing a university degree at the moment too and trying to fit writing in around paid work and children. My biggest motivators are my friends who always encourage me when I’m feeling a bit over it and the need to write always hits when I haven’t done it for a while.

Club Fantasci Host and author Dionne Lister has released “A Time of Darkness (The Circle of Talia) the sequel to “Shadows of the Realm” and best selling series Circle of Talia series. It is available in e-book format and will be available in paperback next week.
Book description: A Time of Darkness is the second book in the best-selling Circle of Talia series. This exciting epic fantasy is filled with magic, dragons and adventure.
While Bronwyn languishes in a cell in the bowels of Vellonia and the dragon king argues for her death, the gormons are one step closer to destroying Talia. To add to The Circle’s problems, Leon’s plans to overthrow his brother, King Edmund, are moving ahead faster than anyone could have imagined, and someone will die as a result. The realmists and dragons are doing all they can, but how could it possibly be enough when thousands have already been slaughtered?
The prophesized time of darkness, a time the realmists have dreaded for the last thousand years, has begun.
Congratulations Dionne from all of us at Club Fantasci!
