With the November 11 DVD/Blu-ray release of How To Train Your Dragon 2 just around the corner – it was released digitally this week for all of us who just couldn’t wait – I asked my friend and fellow Dracophile, R.J.Robinson to pen a few words on the subject of Hiccup, Toothless, and the new, improved, Dragons of Berk.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 Review by R.J. Robinson.

This is a minor spoil-filled review, so if you haven’t seen the movie, be warned.

I consider “How To Train Your Dragon” to be Dreamwork’s best animated franchise. With two current full length films out, a few short films and a TV show, with a third season said to premiere on Netflix in Spring 2015, you can clearly see that the story of Hiccup and Toothless is far from over. And I’m glad for that. I saw the first film…

Another Fun Day!

Published October 20, 2014 by Michelle Dennis - Author

This year has been amazing! Wolfbaene turned 1 and to celebrate, we participated in the Perth SupaNova. It was our first big day out and we were all quite nervous. This would be my first book signing ~ what if nobody bought a book!

The SupaNova turned out to be a fabulous weekend and now I felt much more confident. Book Week was around the corner!

Chatting with primary school children inspired me to keep going. Showing kids my book, discussing character development and plot, aswell as sharing my love of fantasy, really gave me a huge buzz.

We then moved onto another festival, where we’d showcase Wolfbaene and introduce Orrin as our mascot. The Medieval Festival would be perfect for my medieval book! I met some really beautiful families and people were amazed at my generosity in giving proceeds from the sale of my book to Princess Margaret Children’s Hospital. Exhausting, but exhilarating, the Medieval Carnivale in Balingup was a magical weekend.

Now, we have one more fun day to join in on, before Christmas approaches. Alinjarra Primary School, hosting a fun day, will be the next forum for Wolfbaene and it’s characters.

I’ll post pictures here, afterwards! So keep an eye on this page 🙂

Time to Chip In…

MacKENZIE's Dragon's Nest

For all their size and ferocity, Dragons walk through the world with a remarkably gentle step. They care for the planet and people who care for them with a playful enthusiasm. They also hate to be bored – bored Dragons are gloomy Dragons – and working with their people keeps them from drifting through the seas of ennui.

Z10

Those of us who share our lives with Dragons love being on the receiving end of this altruistic energy. It’s also nice to know they appreciate how much we try to do for them and make a return on our efforts with draconic élan. As the sweet warmth of Indian Summer turns chill and pre-winter chores pile as high as the back-yard leaves, we are doubly grateful to have our Dragon friends around to lend a paw. It’s Chipping-In Weekend at last![1]dragons_at_work_by_club_kids-d3bd8ws

CONCEPT: BENEFACTORS

Published October 19, 2014 by Michelle Dennis - Author

Grady P Brown - Author

As I wrote the first volume of the Young Guardians Series, I realized that the Young Guardians would have certain limitations that even their immense powers cannot solve.  The limitations in question are political and financial in nature.  Since they are only teenagers, there would only be so much they can do alone to gain the support that they would need.  After all, they would need to find a way to get housing, paying the bills, funding their activities, and finding loopholes in the laws against vigilantes.  To solve these problems, the Young Guardians receive the most unlikely of benefactors in the first volume and the true nature of that benefactor will be revealed in the upcoming third volume.  I will not say who this mysterious benefactor is, but what I can say is that they have what the Young Guardians need in terms of financial and political influence.  This…

Five Dark Denizens: Asmodeus, Kasyade, Merihim, Nessos and Geryon

Demelza Carlton's Place

I’d like to introduce you to five of the darker denizens of Hell. From poker players to raping, poisoning centaurs to a bit of BDSM…these demons are definitely in the right place in the Pit of Despair.

Asmodeus

Rumour has it that Asmodeus is the son of the angel of prostitution, Naamah, and Adam, the first man, so it may come as no surprise that he’s the demon of lust. He’s also responsible for inciting gambling and most of the gambling in Hell is overseen by him.

He once fell in love with a woman named Sara, murdering her husbands until the archangel Raphael chased him away from her and back to Hell. His favourite pastime is tormenting newlyweds with all sorts of problems – both in the bedroom and in the rest…
