The lantern above him flickered to life; William knew it must be meal time if the lanterns were being switched on, but he had no intention of going back to his dorm. He had to work out what the leather~bound book was all about. For as long as he could remember, he had carried it around in his backpack – which wasn’t strange in itself, but, the pages were blank; that was until he had turned seventeen just days before. Then, words began to appear. Not just words, but runes that swam across the page – curly letters forming strange words that made his eyes strain and his heart race.
This year will bring lots of new and exciting things for Wolfbaene!
While I finish Wolfbaene ~ The Next Quest, I’ll be working hard at a second edition (fresh cover too!) For Wolfbaene.
2014 was a fantastic year for Wolfbaene and I’m sure the fun will continue in 2015, with festivals, school visits and much more. And to let you all into a little secret, Orrin may even be working on his own children’s picture book!
If your new to William’s adventure, here’s some links to purchase your copy
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 🙂
Er… Hi there, this is William, William Knight. I’ve just had the most unbelievable few hours of my life; to put it mildly. Peter Cooper, the school bully, gave me a blood nose – in the college library, of all places! This led to Miss Flett being out for my blood and me escaping out onto the college grounds, to hide in the darkness, just by the skin of my teeth. Then, to add to this, the strange book that I’ve been carrying around in my backpack for as long as I can remember, started showing me strange runes across it’s normally blank pages – I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, but somehow it felt pretty normal. How is that normal? Around about then, things went pear-shaped. I must have passed out. I woke up in a dark cave with a kid staring into my face telling me we’d been kidnapped by dragons. Dragons! Two, in fact. And not just your average fire-breathing, man-eating dragon, these two were friendly, talking, intelligent dragons.
In the last few hours I’ve been told I’m to rescue the queen from a dungeon guarded by a malicious king who stole the throne from her and murdered her husband. The queen is my mother, which makes me the son of the king who had his throne stolen. And you know what that means? I am a prince. Me! William Knight, prince of Chermside Castle. It’s beyond unbelievable, but I believe it. I want to believe it because I’m seventeen and I have nothing else to believe in. Growing up in a boarding school, with absolutely no family or friends, does that to you. Now I’m being told I’m to become a knight, learn to ride a horse, kill the king, and return the town of Chermside back to how it was – and I believe it. The only problem is, the kid who was staring at me when I woke up is my brother, Thomas. I don’t think like him…
