Ok - this is possibly my first ever attempt at 'spam' - but your name Van Rensburg caught my South African eye. Then I read your bio and bucket-list and couldn't resist. My dream home is an old-fashioned horse-drawn gypsy caravan, I've toured the SE states of the US in a hippy wagon - old volkswagen combi that was previously owned by a bunch of touring surfers- and Alaska is on my bucket list, along with an epic dog-sled journey. I don't want to be buried, I want my carcass to be transported to Greenland or the north pole to feed hungry polar bears.
That aside, I noticed that you have David Eddings on your fav authors, so I thought it might just be possible that you would find my book, the Seventh Gate, a tolerable read. It's epic fantasy romance, more in the 'older style' of Eddings and Zimmer-Bradley - but like your own book, also has some 'turning back the clock' plot twists.
Set in another world, my MC has to travel back in time in order to fix the future. Strong Celtic mythology themes, a dose of medieval flavour, definitely some culture clash and romance, and a tiny touch of sci-fi for seasoning.
If you do have a moment to drop by I'd be grateful, and I always return reads as soon as I can.
Kim (The Seventh Gate)
