Guest Blog: Reader Demands by Mandy Eve-Barnett

Sep 20, 2019

When I launched my fantasy novella into the world in 2012, I did not have any intention of writing a sequel, to my mind it was complete and I went onto the next writing project. However, it became clear as many similar messages were received from readers that they wanted to know what happen next, even though the story was resolved. It became apparent that my readers wanted to know what the characters did next. So I utilized my enrollment in NaNowriMo 2018 to write a sequel novella, which follows the granddaughter of the original sorceress in The Rython Kingdom.


This new story is, once again, set in medieval England and an old foe returns to wreak havoc. Can the young sorceress, Maralynn, see through the disguise of the enemy? Her time will be fraught with challenges but can her exceptional power ultimately overcome? I hope that Rython Legacy satisfies my reader’s curiosity and that the Rython saga is complete.

The official launch is set for 28th September 2019 at Words in the Park in the Agora, 401, Festival Lane, Sherwood Park. Both novellas will be able for sale as well as all my other books. If you would like to connect please use: or any of the social media sites. (I’m on most of them!)




Recipe – Herb Omelette

I began growing fresh herbs on my deck last year and found that a large bunch of mixed herbs cut finely into an omelette mixture gave a fresh summery taste. This year’s herb selection thyme, parsley, rosemary, lemon thyme and oregano.

Apart from the basics: eggs, milk, pepper and salt lightly whisked, you can add whatever takes your fancy to the mix. I soften white or red onion first, and then add some combination of chopped cherry tomatoes, spinach, sliced peppers, asparagus, shredded cheese or anything that is surplus in the fridge basically! Then add the herb and egg mixture.

I cook the omelette in a cast iron skillet and once the bottom is cooked place the skillet under the broiler/grill to fluff up the top. It is an easy, tasty breakfast, lunch or even light supper.
