Phaze Books Closes

It’s the third week in May, and my last “weekly update” was
fourteen weeks ago. I did say my renewed commitment to a blog post at least
every week wouldn’t last, didn’t I? You should know better than to trust me on
these matters by now. Read More …

Weekly Update – 13/02/19

It’s Wednesday, and the weekly update I’ve committed to is supposed to go up on a Monday. But I’ve been feeling under the weather this week, so that’s my excuse. Read More …

Weekly Update 04/02/2019

It’s been another good week in terms of writing. Not stellar, but good. I added about three thousand words to The Truths We Live pushing it past the seventy-five thousand word mark. I didn’t write every day last week, but on the days I did I was adding between five-hundred to a thousand words each sitting. Read More …

Weekly Update

As part of my desire to get back up to speed, I’m committing myself to posting an update on my progress with my writing at least once a week. So here’s this week’s update. Read More …

Well, I’m please to say that I’ve written said blog post and got past the roadblock. Read More …

Works in Progress

Five days, Five Blog posts. Not a bad re-start to my blogging if I do say so myself. Actually, it’s surprising quite how easily the words began to flow again once I opened up the taps and actually sat down to write. Read More …

I’m Back!? Sort of. Maybe.

It’s been well over a year since my last post on this
website or on “The Grumpy Blog”. It’s been almost three years since my last

It’s been just over six months since I posted anything on my
Facebook author page and about four months since I made a post on my Facebook
profile – and that was something banal about the Harry Potter films. Read More …

A Few Days Away

I had a few days away with the family last week. It was a nice relaxing time as evidenced by my FitBit. Usually, on a workday, I’ll do somewhere between twelve and fifteen thousand steps. For the first two days of last week, I did less than five thousand on each day. Yep, I was Read More …

Let’s Talk About… “Kissed by a Rose”

Kissed by a Rose was the first “Full Length” novel I ever wrote. By “Full Length” I mean it was some eighty thousand words long—guidelines vary but the general rule of thumb seems to be that anything under about fifty thousand words is a novella and anything over that is a novel.  It was also the Read More …

Let’s Talk About Westmouthshire

While I was struggling to make any headway with either “The Truths We Live” or “A Wounded Heart” earlier this year, I tried to get my creative juices flowing by looking back at other books in the Westmouthshire Universe and sketching out a timeline of the events within it. It was an interesting thing to Read More …
