Beijing Book Fair August 27th 2014
My Wizards' Kingdom trilogy is being exhibited at the Beijing Book Fair in China - August 27th to 31st 2014.
This is really exciting for me, because if the foreign translation rights are sold, that would be a huge boost to my career. I would love to be an author with international success, with world-wide book sales.
There are many publisher's who attend the book fair, from Europe, Asia and many other countries. I can't wait to see what happens. Hope my agent can snag a contract.

Crank Tech One: DESTRUCTION to be made into an Audio Book, with In Ear Entertainment, and will be available on Audible/Amazon/iTunes, when recorded.
It's been a while since Wizards' Kingdom opened up my writing world. This was my very first dip into magic and wizardry. So, I've decided to write another wizarding adventure. This next series won't be in any way linked to my first series.
The idea of writing another mythical and thrilling trilogy has been nagging away at me for years. I've got some really great ideas which once I've finished Death Trap, the book I'm working on at the moment. Then it will be full steam ahead.
I can't give anything away now, but I will put the progress on my blog. I have the titles and character's names, and a bunch of different plots so far.
My next two books are being published
Thanks for dropping by. I'm excited to tell you that my next two books have been accepted by publishers. Killian Spooks and the Ghosted Children and House of Darke are to be published!
House of Darke is being published by Pegasus Elliot Mackensie and, Killian Spooks and the Ghosted Children is being contracted to Whiteley Publishing. These are both traditional publishing deals and, I'm so chuffed. Check out my blog: Well it finally happened!

Message: I have read Shelly Vendor for the secound time this month, I love it!!! I can`t wait to read your other books, I want to be be a author one day like you, I think you gave me the final boost up when you came to ables writers day, it was quite a long time ago, but I will always remember it, I still have the mini story we wrote with you, Death-Trap, I think I`m going to extend it and trying put it in my own book.
I have also written a whole book, you were really the one who really inspired me to do that.
Wizards' Kingdom... 'The Obelisk of Ashmar' Thoroughly enjoyed your new book. Just enough background information and recap of the first story to remind the reader of the original plot or for a new reader to see what has previously transpired. It is a 'Stand alone plot' and reading the first story is not a prerequisite. Every chapter has a strong, individual, original storyline. Excellent descriptive language - poetic, evocative mastery, filled with suspense and adventure. Great titles for every chapter... Very exciting climax. This series is a real winner - Alison Hall teacher at Williamstown Primary School
'The other day I called to pick my twelve year old granddaughter Shanine up. While waiting for her, I picked up her latest book, Wizards' Kingdom by Colin R. Parsons and could not put it down. She also raved about it, and was eager to get her hands on the next one. I was so pleased that she had finished it, so I could take it home. A great read:' Sheila Quigley author of 'Run For Home'.......'Every Breath you take'...'Thorn in my side' and many other award winning novels.
