Tempted By The Runes

In the 860s AD when the Vikings first started to settle on Iceland, it was completely uninhabited. There had apparently been a few Irish monks who had somehow made their way there to live in isolation, and possibly the odd ship that had been blown off course, but unlike most other places that were colonised, the newcomers didn’t have to fight anyone for possession of the land. It was just there for the taking. That must have been an amazing feeling!

#BookSpotlight ~ Bollywood Invasion by Ricardo Alexanders #Fantasy Time Slip Novel #Extract

I’d like to welcome Ricardo Alexanders as he explains the idea behind his new book…..

What if Lennon was born an Indian…

If John Lennon was born in India in 1940 with the same talent, could he still conquer the world? 

This is the very question that I kept asking myself during my writing of Bollywood Invasion. Something extraordinary had to happen if the Indian (British) Invasion was to take America by storm as the world back then was not even close to be as multi-cultural as we are today.
