Colours of Destiny:
Within the mind of a sleeping being, seven people who are nothing but 'figments' of its very own imagination come to realise how unreal their existence has been. Have you ever wondered what happens when you wake up upon dreaming of people, events and worlds you have never seen previously before? While you dream of these figments, they talk, smile, play, fight, live and die. However once you wake, what happens to them all? What happens to the entire world that you create and destroy.... every single morning?
Gideon and the Crimson Samurai:
Gideon Joust is your average twelve-year-old boy, with all the growing insecurities one would expect, following the mysterious disappearance of his father. On one fateful day, the boy’s world is turned upside down – leading to a chance encounter with a brash child warrior: Kibishi the Crimson Samurai.
4.54 billion years the earth has existed – forming life that has continued to grow and adapt. Of all the species that have evolved, mankind has exceeded the most, from the discovery of fire, to the Internet and advanced machinery. Unfortunately, the hearts of men have changed for the worse, due to greed, corruption and manipulative warfare. As such, the wrath of the earth has been stirred, and its creator Mother Gaia takes it upon herself to end the human race. Bearing the appearance of a beautiful young woman, Mother Gaia will experience the darkest hearts of mankind, with no light in sight. Political – full of scientific and religious contradictions that will leave you questioning your own morality, Mother Gaia is a reminder that nature is a force not to be reckoned with.
A Sinless Horizon:
In a world bound by conflict, orchestrated by two world powers that have fought for centuries – one teenager’s somewhat peaceful life has been destroyed, along with everything he once knew. Saved by an ancient alien species, before given their mightiest suit to achieve his revenge, the boy will become the world’s greatest threat. In order to dismantle the constant cycle of war, Aldara will go up against the armies of the world – in a search to find a Sinless Horizon.
The Worst Death:
Responsibility is not for some – especially when it comes to a somewhat laid back teenager, with thoughts of sleeping usually on his mind. Being an underachiever is all he’s ever known – however when a loved one loses their life due to his irresponsibility, the naive teenager decides to put things right by making a deal… with death.
My name is Ricky Baxter, an indie author who would love the chance to get involved with your Festival, in order to help give advice to others on the current world of self-publishing, and to hopefully mention my recent titles.
I have appeared on many radio stations, been featured on many interviews and have also appeared at Purbeck Literary Festival 2015. http://www.purbeckliteraryfestival.info/#!convergences-event/cjbo
As someone who was born and raised in the cultural hub known as London, most listeners find my approach to be genuinely helpful to their needs – regardless of age and background. Distances of the places I have attended has never been a problem. Whether near or far, I take each appearance seriously – going on air on a community radio station in Seacroft Leeds, to speaking to a group regarding self-publishing in Swanage Dorset.
I look forward to hearing from you,
