Today, I have a very special guest……Harmony Kent. She is the author of three awesome books and is on an exciting blog tour through 4WillsPublishing. I have the pleasure of her company today and I think you will thoroughly enjoy her visit.
Hi there! Well, today is the sixth day on my seven day blog tour. If you want to catch my other stops, you can find links to them on my 4WillsPublishing Author Page.
Today, I would like to tell you about my online journey. This has had its ups and downs!
The most difficult thing for me to get to grips with, was how on earth to make a blog, and what to put on it. I started out on a WordPress platform, which was a basic blogroll page. Slowly, bit by bit, I learned how to add other ‘static’ pages. Eventually, though, I found this platform to be limited, and I wanted my own domain name.
Not having a clue where to start, I enlisted the help of a guy who makes websites for a living, and he helped get me off the ground. It did cost, though. However, he has been there at those times when I’ve really needed technical help, like when my site completely crashed and I lost everything. Yikes! I am currently attempting to learn various internet coding, so I can one day ‘write’ my own website, without having to rely on a pre-made platform at all. With everything else going on, though, this is likely to take quite a while!
And, if that wasn’t hard enough to get to grips with, I then had the joys of Facebook and Twitter to get a handle on. Until publishing ‘The Battle for Brisingamen’, I had been an intensely private individual, and so the thought of anything Social Media related was terrifying. OMG! Somehow, I have managed to end up with two Facebook pages, only one of which has a ‘like’ button. But, at least I’m on there! I much prefer the Twitter arena. I don’t know why, but I just find it easier and less daunting. It’s only taken me the last two years to work out how to link my Twitter feed to Facebook—lols.
Way back when, I could never have appreciated how many other skills I would need just to become a self-published author. Not least of which, has been the whole aspect of making a Book Cover . . . stop by on tomorrow’s blog host for more on that!

Mystery, Thriller & Suspense.
You are being arrested for the murder of your husband …You have a secret you can’t tell …The evil is gathering …
The Wenstrops have it all: health, wealth and happiness. But then it all begins to fall apart. Helen is arrested for murder, yet is either unable or unwilling to give a defence. During her detention, vital evidence goes mysteriously missing and tensions are running high. Helen finds herself surrounded and yet alone: not knowing who she can trust or how she can tell her enemies from her friends. Helen has to work through her self-doubts and fears, in order to know whether her suspicions and misgivings are valid or simply products of an overwrought mind. There are those who would like to encourage her confusion, and those who would help her – but how to know one from the other? And then there are those who actively mean her harm. Meanwhile, malignant forces in the forest are gathering power, ready for a final assault. Helen finds herself in a battle of life and death, and faces having to lose everything in her attempts to thwart the evil that has insinuated itself into her very existence – but is she ready to make the ultimate sacrifice?
This sensational second novel by acclaimed author Harmony Kent will have you alternately laughing, crying and gripping the edge of your seat as this roller coaster ride of a plot unfolds. It will keep you guessing through its many twists and turns, and hijack your attention right up until you turn the final page. This book has it all: murder, intrigue, the supernatural, a broken marriage, a love affair, courage against impossible odds, suspense, and high drama.
The Glade is an IndieB.R.A.G.Medallion honoree!
There is a World not too Far Away …
Beneath the north sea a land of magic lies undetected. The lives of many are drawn inexorably closer together in a race against time, as both energy companies and evil beings attempt to destroy the magic which is protecting not just this land but all worlds. The unwitting protagonists have no idea of how suddenly and irrevocably their lives are about to change.
It is a race against time to try and recover the lost necklace, Brisingamen, which holds the ancient power of the Goddess Freya, and to prevent the undersea drilling from taking place. Are Aart, Matthias, Gemma and Dirck up to the challenges they now must face?
Here there be Dragons, and all manner of Creatures …
Young Adult Fantasy Fiction
“You turned the god of gnomes into a garden ornament?”
Sarah looked closely, but couldn’t tell if her dad was annoyed or amused—perhaps he was both …
Whilst 15 year old Sarah may be struggling to regain her feet, after being ripped from her everyday mundane life and ending up in a whole new dimension, she still knows how to have a bit of fun along the way. The Earth Elemental isn’t the only one whose feathers she manages to ruffle, and it’s only been four days. Meanwhile, her best friend is missing, and big trouble is brewing. She soon has a lot more to worry about than what happened to her phone or iPod, or even how much of an idiot Caleb obviously thinks she is.
Elemental Earth is the first book in The Mysteries series, and is aimed at Young Adults. Even if you’ve already reached an age where the young ones might call you ‘old enough’, if you’re still young at heart then you’re bound to enjoy these books just as much as the next—err—younger adult.
Age aside, perhaps we should be more worried about what further havoc Sarah’s antics might be about to wreak on the universe as we know it? We’d probably all be sleeping a lot more soundly if she’d only stuck to applied maths and the odd pillow fight. But no, sadly the lure of the proverbial rabbit hole proved just a tad too much. And now she’s taken the plunge, there’s no turning back.
