The Fulcrum is for readers who like some magic with their real life, some supernatural with their Sci-Fi, some retelling with some myth mixing. It’s for readers who like character-driven, plot-based fiction where genres are bent and blended, and protagonists are caught in a story not of their choosing…
Where to get it, what it’s about, some pictures for the imagination…

Praise for The Fulcrum
Getting reviews as a self-published author is hectic, friends. But I’m so pleased that readers so far have left beautiful reviews, and I’m very grateful for these.
Wow, wow, wow. I have just reluctantly read the last word of this book, hungrily even reading the acknowledgments, because I didn’t want it to be over. I am not sure why this book was not snapped up by the first publishing house to see it, because it’s a masterpiece. It has all my favourite elements … magic realism, profundity, soulfulness, real-ness, humour, sexiness (one of my favourite sex “scenes”, ever) and marvellous, mind-bending perspectives on the Big questions. And it is well assembled, well researched with characters unfolding in many-faceted richness as they develop and spiral inevitably towards each other and the book’s climax. Like the best stories, it inspires and reveals insights best shared via the vehicle of storytelling. I hope there is a sequel or series, and if not, whatever Tanya Meeson writes next, I want to read it! – Annwen, GoodReads
Describe what this book is about? Love, death, rebirth, spirituality, suspense, evil and miracles are all covered, and more. The Fulcrum in an intense read, and an entirely original one. Spanning the ages, its characters range from a burlesque dancer who discovers she’s pregnant with a child who, unbeknown to her, is destined for greater than great things, to close friends, bad bad people… It took a chapter or two to get into, but once the plot started to reveal itself I was completely hooked and read into the dark hours. (With cramped fingers – it’s a 600-pager). The book is difficult to categorise, crossing genres, but it’s beautifully written. The characters are well-fleshed, the plot dense and delicious and intelligent. Five stars from me… I see it was self-published. Why it wasn’t snapped up by a publisher is quite beyond me. Looking forward to more from this author. – Judy, GoodReads
What an unexpected surprise. This novel was completely unpredictable. It did take me a chapter or two to really settle into it. So persevere. What an extraordinary tale though, fantasy novel set in our times. This equates for deliciousness supreme. And now I left wanting. What new book will hold my gaze as well as this one did! – Tass, GoodReads
I thoroughly enjoyed the story told and the way it was revealed, one layer at a time. The book is most definitely not easily defined into a specific genre, but as a multi-genre type thing it excels at what it does. Quite frequently there is a slight foreshadowing happening about what might be happening further on the book, and this pays off in spades every time regarding the continuity created. The characters in the story are very well fleshed out, giving a good indication of where they come from and what their motivations are. It was a joy and pleasure to read through the book and I would highly recommend this to anybody who enjoys Dean Koontz or Stephen King books. – Paul, GoodReads

What are these pictures about?
The Fulcrum spans five countries, a few different eras, a few different … well, you’ll have to read the book for the rest.
When I was putting this page together I thought it would be great to include some of the pictures that have been in my head for the past six years. If you’ve read The Fulcrum they might delight you as much as they do me. If you haven’t, maybe they’ll entice you to give it try.
