I’m delighted to be part of the birthday blog blitz for Visions of Zarua, courtesy of Rachel’s Random Resources.
Suzanne Rogerson tells us about Visions of Zarua’s unexpected route into traditional publishing….
First let me share a little of the history behind Visions of Zarua. It’s my debut novel, though I do have a couple of unsuccessful fantasy attempts hidden away. Back in 2013, I submitted it to a few agents and a publisher. Without finding any success with them, I decided to use a critique service to see where it was going wrong. The critique was spot on with the various issues in the book and I rewrote it into its current form.

His name is Jake, a rock musician from Holland and he has a contract on his life. Their daring escape across London eventually draws them into a place of hiding before Jake’s chilling story begins to unfold. He was the one vital witness to a sinister scene leading up to the death of a British MP and now those responsible want him silenced.
