A Strange Omen
I have received a few mails asking me to release written in the stars as an e-book and a couple even as a book. Remember though that this is a free linear novel that I post in my websites every month for free but apparently in some cases it is difficult to read online I have therefore released chapters one through fourteen as "A Strange Omen"
I have rewritten and reassembled the posted stuff and have tried to keep it as cheap as possible after all it is not the finished book and also it is available for free online. I did try to release it at no cost but I am afraid the system is just not set up for that but it is available for minimal cost.
Remember that chapters fifteen and sixteen will be available here by the 20th December to read for free and all subsequent chapters till the novel is complete.
Soon to come from Raymond Walker is
"He who walks on Ancient ground, Walks with its Spirits".
There is no release date yet but it will probably be out mid to late October. This is not a new novel but rather a compendium of the three Kilmartin Novels contained in one volume. It is likely to be released only as a collectors edition in hardback format. It contains all three of the Kilmartin Novels as well as an exclusive short story based in the area and a long introduction by the author telling of how his love of the area grew. A history of his involvement with the village and the area.
"Written in the stars"
Additionally, "Written in the Stars" which is being published on both This website and Raymond Walker's U.S. website simultaneously will be reworked after completion and released as a novel. But you can read it First and in its original form here for free and totally exclusive. Just go to the "Written in The Stars" tab on this site or the "Stay with me for a while" tab on the US website. www.raytwalker.com
Raymond has promised that he will produce the whole story online and it will be available for you to read month on month completely free of charge.
So go to the Written in the Stars section to read the first seven chapters for free. The eighth chapter will be there by the 20th of September and each month thereafter until the novel is complete.

The Secret Inside
Raymond Walker is the author of Seven novels, two compendiums of short stories and two books of poetry (though they intersect somewhat).
Not one to be pigeonholed his books range from Romances and Ghost stories to historical fiction and fantasy. He is the winner of several writing competitions and his books have received critical acclaim worldwide. He is working on two new novels; "Written in the Stars" which is a science fiction romance and "Sommerled", a fantasy based on the life of "Sommerled MacSorley" "The Lord of The Isles" the first of which will be available soon . Additionally he is soon to publish a second volume of the critically acclaimed "A River of Tears". This will be called "Moon child" and hopefully the second volume will enchant people as much as the first.

Just some reviews for Raymond Walkers Books;
Nut Brown Eyes
Nut Brown Eyes was wonderfully written with good
characterization and descriptions. It captured my
attention and imagination from beginning to end.
There is a quote from Piccaso at the beginning of
the book that describes my overall feeling.
It says, " Everything you can imagine is real"
R. Walker weaves in the ordinary and obvious, magic
and mysticism, giving the story a good dynamic, beautiful
texture, and imagery that stay with you long after the story ends.
Overall, this is a well written book that I would definitely recommend.
A River of Tears
A River of Tears is a wonderful and magical journey through the tribulations of love in our mortal realm, and of the human spirit's struggle against time and death. These tales open a window to the unknown where the heart's eternal search for a true immortal love seems possible.
It is beautifully written and clearly presented, never gets bogged down in narrow details. An entertaining as well as inspirational read.
A light of hope, a way to our souls...a whisper of Eternity.
Simply outstanding. I did love it.
I really enjoyed this story. It is an engaging
tale of a bittersweet love, passion and pain. The
romance takes the reader through a wide range of
emotions whilst providing depth to the characters
personalities.It is..in a way, a psychological
incursion on the nature of a love used and abused
by a selfish and heartless person.
Excellent book. Wish I could find stories like
this more often.
Tales from this Northern Land
This collection of stories is enchanting and intense. These tales took me to that beautiful and mystical Scottish land and its people. They sent me back and forth in time in a fantastic journey, along which a difficult and ardent romance unfolds in the mids of a struggle to survive...or rather save the spirit of a man and his land. Excellent.
Absolutely wonderful, but this was such a difficult book to review. I didnt know whether to review the three novellas and five stories contained therein as a whole or individually. Since i could have written reams on some of them (and i didnt want to bore anyone rigid), i have decided to write an overview on the complete book. So here goes; i found them an enchanting array; a mixture of the mystical and pure human emotion, as always with R. Walker, i became part of the tale, i felt the longing, the love; the hope of each and every character for a short time (way too short a time in my opinion) i became them; i loved as they did, suffered as they did, hoped for the future that they hoped for and died as they did, for i didnt want any of these stories to end, i wanted to continue living in them for a lifetime.
One more thing i have to say is upon reading these tales and although i have lived in Scotland all my life, i had never realised what a beautiful, magical and wonderful place Scotland is.
I see it so differently now, since reading R. Walker's work, every time i do something as simple as walking the dogs, these days love stalk's me from theundergrowth, nymphs scamper in the tree branches and there is a hope of a world new born, or perhaps more ancient.
I found this very different from R.Walker's previous books, especially at the beginning; being pretty much historical fiction though it was as always well written and conceived. As the story developed however: through its many plot twists and turns, I realised that this will appeal to Mr Walkers earlier readers but will attract many new followers. I challenge anyone to predict the ending while still reading but the clues are all there. Without giving too much away, Cornelius becomes one of the best anti-heroes I have ever read. Highly recommended.
This is truly a fascinating book. I was taken in after reading the first pages, first of all, because it is written in a refreshingly original way. It also is rich in historical foundation, depth of characters, and wit. The stories of war in legendary Rome, adventure, magic, and suspense make Cornelius a captivating read. The plot empowered with love and the supernatural carries with it something you never want to let go of, and when the book ends, you simply want more. The eroticism and pleasure of lovemaking is so enthralling toward the end that I lost myself in the story for a moment. However I think the overall message of the book is love and its transforming power...how love transforms and liberates. I believe readers of love and romance as well as those who enjoy historical fantasy and fiction will find something to treasure in this book. Very well done. Really amazing.
This book shows how our lives and basic needs have not really changed throughout the ages. One not to be missed, loved it.
Another wonderful story from Raymond Walker. I loved it and couldn't put it down till I had got to the end. I will definitely be looking out for more stories by this Author.
A Pale Shadow Creeps
Another great story from Raymond Walker, who never fails to deliver an enjoyable read. I couldn't put it down and just couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. With the style in which Raymond writes his stories you always feel like you're there and living the story with the characters. I have read all Raymond's books and have to say this is one of my favorites.
