I have just finished reworking my Tyrelia manuscript, incorporating the feedback from my various Beta reviewers. I’ve enjoyed reading the comments that one of them made. For Chapter 32, where Watcher Rube escapes being brought down by a couple of dogs by throwing a hunk of salami as a distraction, my reviewer wrote in the margin “thank the Land for the salami!” I had a wee giggle. Thanks Gerardine!
Thank the Land for the salami!

A fantasy fan since being read 'The Hobbit' by her father at the fireside at the age of six, she has been an avid bookworm her entire life. When the idea for her current trilogy popped into her head, there was never any doubt that it would be in the fantasy genre. Unfortunately, real life gets in the way, and writing has to fit around her full-time job at a global engineering consultancy and family life (husband and two young adult children). It took ten years to pen her first book, Medar, which was a finalist for the Tom Fitzgibbon Award in 2015 and was published in 2017. Her second book, Tyrelia was nominated in the Young Adult Fiction category in the 2019 Sir Julius Vogel Awards. Her third book, Golden City, is due out in 2021. View all posts by Sharon Manssen
