The long awaited novel’s “The Brotherhood Of The Realms” and “On A Storyteller’s Night” by Writer/Author, Marcus De Storm, would never have been possible, if it wasn’t for Costa Coffee House in Wetherby. This was according to the Author himself who placed a Blog Blurb on the internet.
‘Due to the assistance of Wi-Fi and the laid back comfortable conditions that Wetherby Costa gave me, I was able to complete two of the twenty-five novel’s which accompany the series of “On A Storyteller’s Night”, which also includes the Pilot novel. I would be pleased to share this information with any other Writer/Author, who is looking for that special place to chillax and write their works and projects.’ Marcus wrote.
Wetherby Costa Coffee House which is situated next to the Wetherby Bus Station has been the local watering hole for Marcus De Storm during the two year project, as well as the creation of “The Storm Writer’s Circle”, which has been set up to help other Writer’s and Author’s find sources of Publishing needs.
‘Its hard to believe that two years ago, my wife and I walked into Wetherby Costa Coffee House and immediately became comfortable – as comfortable as an executive revisiting their own favoured Wine Bar and being greeted with a smile of service. With Wetherby Costa, the entire transformation from our usual Café – The Gourmet situated on the Shambles, Wetherby – where they talked about getting Wi-Fi for the many computer workers that visit the establishment, but alas did not take the initiative; with more than 68% of Café’s and Coffee Houses now catering with free Wi-Fi and Internet Access, sales projections alone have doubled (even tripled) in many areas where the lack of the 21st Century technology has shown a mass slump.’
So, why Costa Coffee House, if the availability of Wi-Fi was not there?
‘The bottom line here is not the fact that ALL Costa Coffee Houses offer free Wi-Fi and Internet Access, it is the all-around feel of the establishment, the attitudes of the staff that work there and, a mutual sense that it almost like “Home from home”, whichever way you want to look at it. When my company began the “Great Latte Tour” more than two years ago, we found that out of eight Café’s in Wetherby, only three were compatible with the challenge results. Costa Coffee House has remained Storm Multi-Media Technologies Ltd number one Coffee House, while still in second place is The Gourmet on The Shambles in Wetherby. For the Café to become best known for its unique tastes, surroundings and approach of the staff in general, they have to work for the benefits or the prize – and Costa has succeeded in all of these challenges and necessities.’
With several novel’s destined for publication throughout 2012, we asked what the future holds and which direction the whole Author status is going to go?
‘There are some 53 writing Projects associated with my name, and five of these Projects are to be completed within the year (2012). With global sales climbing each week of “The Brotherhood” and that of “On A Storyteller’s Night Book 1” on eBook, the main emphasis is now directing toward a new release which is not Crime/Gore/Horror, but Sci-Fi. Of course, the new Project details will be released very soon, but until then, I can safely say that there are enough covered topics and categorised Story-Shorts and Novels in my locker that will serve as entertainment for everyone. With the help and assistance of Costa Coffee House in Wetherby, where I can purchase my wake up Latte, chillax and complete a chapter or two in the forty-five minutes that I am welcomed there, then the world will see much of the work I have to share.’
As announced by Marcus De Storm, the new novel “On A Storyteller’s Night Book 1: The Beginning” will be released on schedule for the 1st June 2012 in Paperback format, and one month later Book 2: The Sanctum, will be released to eBook first where it will follow shortly after in Paperback, too, but no firm date has been set by the Writer. Until then, we have to make do with the mysteries of the two novels already available and await the new Project.
