Voyage of the Dragon: Into the unknown...
(The Madog Trilogy Book 2)
On the way they will encounter an arrogant and dangerous lord, an ambitious bishop, a future king, an Irish hating giant psychopath, and a vindictive Icelandic chieftain, whilst all the while being trailed by a deadly Welsh mercenary.
Will Prince Madog and his fellow travelers make it to the mystical land far to the west? Can they even make it out of Europe?
“Had you heard of the Welsh prince who discovered America?”
Now if I thought that writing a book would be the hardest part, I was mistaken. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t easy, but then along came the editing… In the interim, I took a trip back home to Wales visiting my mum and sister and naturally, I took time out to visit locations that had played pivotal roles in my novel; places that I’d visited many times growing up, but which now took on a whole new meaning.
When I got back, I rewrote parts of the book, taking inspiration from my travels around Gwynedd and Anglesey. I also got invaluable feedback from my best friend Jon out in Florida, who had been doing work on a series of books that had hit the NYT Children’s Bestseller list. Taking out my scalpel – or was that meat cleaver - my initial draft (which had just over 100,000 words) was trimmed down to 75,000 and it was off to Amazon.com!
