The first post in my new blog. I’ve had it as a place-holder for some time, but never got around to do anything with it because I didn’t feel it was necessary, perhaps because I had nothing to put on it. Now that I’ve completed my first novel, I feel this is a somewhat auspicious occasion and so have decided to commence posting here. I received some good news last week as my first novel, Witcheskin, was accepted for publication by LT3 Press, so I am in high spirits and enthusiastic about charging ahead with the other novels I have planned out! I hope this will be the start of a new stage in my history as a writer.
This is the first time I have had my work accepted by a publisher and I was overjoyed when I heard the good news. I’m sure there are plenty of people out there who know what that feels like! So, this is an alien world I am venturing into, and who knows where I will end up.
I’m currently working on editing my wife’s first novel, just doing a few pages a day in the hopes that I can have it finished in a couple of day’s time. That aside, I have completed the entire plot for my next novel, Rough Sleepers. Usually when I start writing, I have a few false starts while I test out the characters, and then when I get into their heads a bit more I can start planning the first stages of the story out. Often I don’t even have an idea of what to do with the ending until I am over halfway through!
