Wizards and talking books
The first of the Wizards' Kingdom talking books is going through it's editing stages. The novel has been recorded and it's my duty to listen to the narrator Justin Sargeant and his version of voices; and once I'm happy with the results, Living Audio will go ahead with the final production.
I am told that the process will include a theme tune, which is going to be exciting because it has to be composed and will give the wizarding adventure a Harry Potter feel. Whenever I think of Harry Potter - I think of the theme for the movies.
New books coming for 2014
House of Darke: is an exciting new adventure set inside a weird mansion. Lots of strange things take place. What will happen to Zade, Tina, Meadow and Pip? Will they escape or be forever lost in the House of Darke?

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!

I got this message and it tells me what being an author is all about.
Caitlin has sent you the following email message.
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.
I've read a couple of pages of Shelley Vendor and it is really interesting. It makes you feel like you're the one going on that adventure. The book makes me feel like I'm getting dragged into the story. Thanks so much for signing it, the book is fantastic.

'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.
