Hi all, happy Halloween for those celebrating it:

This post links to one of the chapters of my fantasy fiction project; Library of Lost Wands. It’s chapter 5 of 6 chapters (plus a prologue and some illustration pages) so far. It’s a piece of fanfiction essentially, but not the racey kind! I’ve woven a few historical facts etc into the narrative. Set a century ago, in October 1919, at a time of massive changes a witch is making her way across Europe on a dangerous magical mission…

The book started off as an exercise in fiction writing, to see if I could muster or master the art of an epic story, but the characters are now arguing with me and have a life and will of their own.

I’m asking anyone who likes what they read to donate money or time direct to JK Rowling’s NGO, Lumos or another charity. I’ve given a few suggestions in a ‘Lumos Links’ section.

Take care, stay warm and if it’s dark light a lantern…

She’d assumed, from a pale reflection in her window, the scent of pipe smoke and sense of the sinister, that it had been Ebonine Filtch listening nearby in the shadows. But the attack on George had happened later, when everyone’s attention…
