The Heart of Escher by Jonathan Dance - Book Tour + Giveaway

By 5:00 AM , , , , , , , , , , ,

James Fisher, a lonely, bullied schoolboy, finds himself in
the dark and twisted land of Escher after wishing himself away from an
ill-fated family holiday.

Lost and frightened, James must help heal the dying world of
Escher, overrun by the creatures of the Nightmare forest, to return home.
Guided by the emerald-eyed cat, Sam, and befriended by the
headstrong resistance fighter, Jasper, James is taken on an adventure through a
world mirroring his own nightmares, where he is forced to confront his own
fears and the ghostly Shadow in order to save Escher.

Unbeknown to James, not only is he fighting for Escher’s
future, but also his own.

Born and raised in Hampshire, I spent most of my childhood dreaming up random adventures.

I left the sunny south coast to study Graphic Communication in Bath, where I fell in love with the rolling Somerset hills when I wasn’t walking up them.

Returning to Hampshire 6 years later, after meeting my now wife, Claire, I enjoy a quieter life, walking in the New Forest and relaxing with my wonderful wife and fluffy cat Molly.

I have always enjoyed telling stories, more often than not in visual form, either in films or animations. However, the idea of Escher was too big for me to do visually by myself so I picked up a pen and started writing.

Having written one novel, I am now keen to tell more stories of Escher, while at the same time expressing my imagination with my art.

Closing his eyes, he felt totally relaxed, but this feeling didn’t last. All of a sudden James felt a cold breeze blow down his neck, causing him to shiver and open his eyes.

Everything seemed dimmer, and up above the star was being covered by clouds. The breeze had picked up, and all around James the trees were starting to sway in the wind. Sam rushed under James’ arms and cowered there as a sudden rumbling of thunder echoed across the sky. Equally scared, James was unnerved; the storm seemed to be approaching at some pace.

Drawn to the pond, he noticed that something dramatic was happening within the other world. It was as if the surfaces of that world were made up of glitter, and now everything was being blown away, to reveal nothing underneath. What does it mean? James asked himself, as another rumble of thunder told him perhaps he shouldn’t stay here any longer.
