Lorraine Ambers

Fantasy writer & daydream queen

 

I write fantasy-romance novels, where I spin dark themes into worlds of magic and gold. You’ll find me and my manuscripts deep in the query trenches. My dream is to become a traditionally published author. But in the meantime, I’m revising my manuscripts, working with my team of Beta-readers and engaging with the wonderful writing community.

Like all readers, my happy place is wrapped in the quiet realms of a novel. Transformed and enchanted by the characters and their lives. I love epic fantasy, YA fantasy-romance, dark fairy tales and paranormal romance novels. And I’m a huge Sci-fi movie and a Zelda nerd.

My gift, some would say flaw, is the ability to daydream. Though I’m not sure my family would agree, they often complain that I never listen to them.

On my blog, I review novels, offer inspirational writing tips to help writers pursue their dreams, build their brand and keep motivated.

  1. Hi Lorraine. I’ve just followed you over here from Twitter. I have to agree with the above comment about your attractive site. Your header image is wonderful – gorgeous sky. Is it one from Cardigan Bay? Many people on WordPress are writers, or aspiring writers, and it’s a good place to be to help you to develop your style or simply meet others like yourself. There are lots of great flash fiction challenges out there, if you don’t already do some of them. I wish you every success with your future writing, anyway

    1. Thank you. I do write flash fiction, at my writing group, I like the challenge. The photo was taken a couple of streets away, it’s a single track road, that over looks the town. The sun set was perfect. I’m pleased you found me. 😊

      1. It sounds as though your writing group is really enjoyable as well as helpful with your writing. It’s great to have people who can offer advice and critique your work.

  2. Lovely to meet you, Lorraine! Thank you for the follow, happy to follow back and see what you’re up to. I have a few creative friends who have moved to Wales, so I can see the attraction. Here is the Scottish Borders is where my heart lies, but it’s a similar kind of landscape. Interesting what you say about memoir not being as personally rewarding as you anticipated, I’m wondering about that aspect too. Cheers for now!

    1. Lovely to meet you too. I must visit Scotland, to witness the beauty for myself. I found memoir too close for comfort, where as writing through fantasy is easier to pour my heart and soul into. Let me know how you get on with your experience of writing memoir. 😀

    Beautiful words Lorraine. My writing was kindled in writing groups in Derbyshire, but we have moved away now and I miss them so much. There are none here where I live now, but I have the wide open wild spaces of North Lincolnshire even though I can no longer see them. I find I never have the words to describe what I long to describe. I love Wales. Spent wonderful holidays there. 😊

  5. Great post about a valid (or sore) point for most authors. I agree with going with your own gut instinct, a manuscript has to be your unique voice. I’m not sure if editors work the same world-over but in Australia, in my experience, they merely advise changes, putting tracking comments in a Word.doc for example, and guiding/assisting the writing process. I know it doesn’t do to stick to my guns too hard because an editor is the one who has a finger on the book industry pulse.

    1. Absolutely, an editor has so much knowledge about what works and what doesn’t.
      I think for self-published authors they’re essential. And of course, as the artist we can agree or disagree with the changes suggested. Thanks for commenting. 😊
