Release day!!!

Witcheskin has finally been released and is available in hard copy and ebook! I'm so thrilled that I can finally call myself a published author. It's been a long but relatively easy-going process. Everyone the worked with me to prepare my manuscript for publication was so nice and friendly, and Aisha Akeju did such a [...]

3 weeks and counting

Until my book is released, and I'm not gonna lie, I feel pretty nervous about it. Nervous excitement, yes. I know the golden rule is never to read your reviews and never to respond to them. I'm 50/50 on that because on one hand I'd love to see what people think of my work, but [...]

Last update of 2017 :)

Well, it's been a tough year and I'm looking forward to 2018! With Witcheskin being published and lots of other exciting developments going on in my life, I'm hoping that it's going to be brighter than 2017 has been. I've returned to one of my current projects after a couple of months of inactivity, and [...]

Current status update

I'm currently experimenting with using some novel writing software but I can't decide which to use. Most people recommend Scrivener, which I have tried, but it's kind of ugly and clunky with too many buttons. I've also installed Plume and Manuskript, the latter of which looks the most pleasing to my eye and I think [...]

Witcheskin Update

I got an email today from my publisher with the cover of my novel and I am so excited! I think it looks fantastic and I can't wait to see it in print. They said earlier this month that I would have the manuscript to work on soon too, to fingers crossed that it won't [...]

Slightly side-tracked

I'm taking a little break from working on my third book, and when I say a small break, what I actually mean is I'm currently writing a different book lol. I'm working on a contemporary LGBT kink-positive romance with a side order of mystery, and I've written about 12k words so far. I created the [...]

Work Update

Just a little update on my progress so far. The 3rd Lunar Shadows book has finally got a permanent title. It's called When The Fog Eats The Mountain. I thought this title was more unique than Heartwood (how many books out there are called Heartwood? Dozens probably). I've planned out about 80% of the scenes [...]

Progress

I'm about 20% of the way through my third novel, most of it is planned out now and the ending and everything is organised. I'm not sure if it has turned out exactly as I initially imagined, but then I'm happy with the way things are with it now so I don't feel it's necessary [...]

Rough Sleepers

I completed my manuscript of Rough Sleepers and am happy to report that it has been submitted for examination to my publisher. I'm super excited! The journey I made whilst writing it was very different to the journey I experienced with Witcheskin, and I suspect will be different again to the third book I'm now [...]

Migration

I successfully migrated my blog from Blogger over to WordPress and I'm really impressed with the styles and themes here. They look so fresh and modern! My blogspot was looking pretty tired, like a circa 90s HTML site, not a good look unless you're going for retro. Hopefully I can settle in nicely here and [...]
