Funny but... oh good grief.
 
Absolutely incredible how changing genders makes this so hysterical. Interesting, funny and sad all at the same time http://www.breakingnews.ie/discover/if-we-gave-fathers-the-same-nonsensical-advice-we-give-working-mothers-700862.html

#London
Has enjoyed magnificent weather this week, and I have been fortunate enough to have been on the #Thames. Here we see the latest edition to the London skyline The Shard by the best architect in the world - Renzo Piano (nearing completion) - and the London City HQ by the second best achitect in the world Norman Foster and of course, Tower Bridge, as daring a building for it's time, indeed more so, than even these two masters of engineered architecture, by Sir Horace Jones, the City Architect of the time.

Got an email this morning from someone in Russia who won a free copy of Broken Vows in a competition at the end of last year. I sent along a copy of Harry Takes Off as well.

Well this person is a photographer and sent me a link to a little photoshoot they did. Can you spot the book? :-)

Broken Vows is a love story (not a genre romance) set during the Siege of Lucknow, India, in 1857. Harry Takes Off is pure action-adventure from beginning to end, set in East Africa, 1896.

By sheer coincidence the model used for the cover of the book is also Russian.

Heh. These are fun!
In response to the phenomenon of 'Pokemon Go', I began creating images that suggested a deeper history to the world of Pokemon. As I shared them on Facebook, there was a explosion of delight. I seemed to have hit a modern nerve.

I am not the first to say: Read this book.

I was expecting a run-of-the-mill sword & sorcery, and I would have been happy with that. But this is so much better than that, nothing run-of-the-mill at all.
 
It's my birthday, so I'm giving away my book today. My fantasy novel, Orison, is free today only at the Nine Muse Press store! The file is a zip containing the book in .mobi, epub, and PDF formats. Here's what people have to say about the book:

"Orison is a wonderfully written fantasy novel that interweaves the perspective of three great characters: a thief named Story, a banished wizard named Wrynn, and a guard of the queen named Ashen. Each of these characters struggles to navigate the dangers of a city fraught with conspiracies of powerful people who have no qualms about using Story, Wrynn, and Ashen as disposable pawns. Orison is an engaging novel with complex characters that leave me hoping that Swensen will be writing more."

"I've been waiting for a fantasy book like this since I finished Jim Butcher's 'Codex Alera.'"

"Daniel Swensen creates a world and a city that is vivid and a cast of characters that are easy to like and understand. I stood with Story, the protagonist, on the roof tops of Calushain and we watched the mischief below as if it had been painted by Picasso."

"This book is exactly what I love about writing. I love how Swensen just gets into the world seamlessly, where I just felt it was normal. Story, the MC, is a girl that I can see pieces of myself in and is truly someone I want to root for. I loved the pace of the story and the overall development of the different story lines. Once I got past the first chapter, I was hooked and finished the book in a few days."

Please spread the word if you're so inclined! Thanks!

Introduction
By working day I'm a contract web developer. This means I move around from company to company building websites. By night I'm a writer of Fantasy and Science Fiction, currently focussing on Steampunk - though unlike any you may (or may not) have read before. I am also a screenwriter and sometime poet.

MY BOOKS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

All my steampunk stories are set in the same alternate world where, in 1843, Sir Michael Faraday demonstrated his Principle for the Partial Nullification of the Effects of Gravity. All the stories take place after that. The stories are mostly in three series:

The Maliha Anderson Series (15+)
The Iron Pegasus Series (11+)
The Frozen Beauty Series (13+)
Fantasy

And the pure fantasy Patterner's Path series:
Follow me!

If you just want to hear about new releases join this list.

Or you can sign-up to my newsletter and get the first two Frozen Beauty books free. The newsletter comes out every two weeks and contains interviews with other authors, little tidbits of possible interest plus news about my writing - and no hard sell.
