Say it with #Affectation!

"Listen, everyone! A recent study reveals that seven out of ten American consumers are more likely to purchase a product sold by someone with a British accent. Polls also indicate that most Americans believe a person with a British accent is far superior and more refined than a person who talks ugly."

“Listen, everyone! A recent study reveals that seven out of ten self-loathing Americans are more likely to purchase a product sold by someone with a British accent. Polls also indicate that most Americans consider even a fake British accent to be more refined than the speech of someone who, quote, ‘talks ugly.'”

"My word, Helen! Are American really so foolish as to believe that the appropriation of a fake British accent automatically lends a person some sort of dignity and gravitas that is otherwise utterly lacking?"

“Rubbish, Helen. That can’t possibly be true. What sort of brainless, vulgar American would really be so superficial as to believe a fake British accent automatically lends some sort of dignity or gravitas that is otherwise utterly lacking?”


"Bubble and squeak! Toad-in-the-whole! Buggery bollocks! Chance would be a fine thing! Spotted dick! Bangers and mash! What a load of cobblers! Pip-pip, cheerio! Wot wot wot! Who wants to go to the loo? Riki Tiki Tavi!"

“Bubble and squeak! Toad-in-the-whole! Buggery bollocks! Chance would be a fine thing! Spotted dick! Bangers and mash! What a load of cobblers! Pip-pip, cheerio! Wot wot wot! I have to go to the loo! Er … Riki Tiki Tavi?”

Watch the Rowan Blaize Book Trailer HERE.

Book One = The magical cornerstone – a lavishly illustrated epic narrative poem … a genuine “spell” for the young and young-at-heart to treasure for a lifetime, telling the story of sorcerer Rowan Blaize’s battle to regain his magic powers. (Think Beowulf-meets-Dr.Seuss or an epic story-in-verse of a scope similar to Tolkien’s soon-to-be-released The Fall of Arthur, only contemporary.)

Book Two = The rip-roaring novel that continues the adventures of Rowan Blaize and introduces the three hilarious witches of the Ancient City, along with its dysfunctional werewolves, wraiths, ghosts, vampires, dryads, banshees and a beauty pageant brat that just might destroy the world.

Book Three = The next novel that finds Rowan trapped by a spell in another world, caught between a faery-squashing sorceress who’ll stop at nothing to conquer the kingdom … and a feisty teenage prince who’s determined to get it back.
