Release Date Confirmed

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me. Work has picked up for one thing—which always makes it difficult to find the time to post to the blog. But putting that aside, I’ve been spending every spare moment I’ve had working on two things.

To-Do-List Update

I thought it might be worthwhile just posting a little update with where I’m at with the various projects I’m working on.

Questions that need Answers

I’ll happily admit, I think I’m really looking forward to the next one hundred thousand words or so.

A Note About Word Counts

And as a hobby, the stuff ‘around’ the actual writing is something I find interesting just as much as the writing itself. And one of those things is word counts. At heart, I’m a stat hound. I love numbers, that’s why I work with them day in and day out. And, to me at least, and don’t hate me for this, there are few things quite as satisfying as a well-formatted, informative spreadsheet.

Two New Paperbacks & Another Short Story Updated

I’ve recently published two new paperback editions of my books on Amazon. Both The Slumber Party and The Big Four Ohhh! now have paperback editions in the 8×5 inch format.

Are you furious about the A-Level results scandal? I am, and so should you be.

For me, the real tragedy here is those “average” students who were predicted “average” grades that would have been enough to get them a place at an “average” University who will now miss out.

Holiday Time Proves Productive

I’ve been on holiday this week. I’ve come with my family to a truly lovely part of the world, Pembrokeshire in South Wales. We’re staying in a lovely little cottage on a working Small Holding (a very small farm) and it’s been a very pleasant week so far. Unfortunately, all good things have to end and we have just one day left before we drive home on Friday.

Progress Update: A Wounded Heart, Book 3 of the Paul Robertson Saga

I think it’s fair to say that the question I get asked most when readers are kind enough to contact me is, “When is the next Paul Robertson book coming out?”

The Waiting Game Begins

So… I have a first draft of The Truths We Live. I think I’ve been able to find the balance that I spoke about a couple of days ago and I’m happy with where I’ve left Bobby & co for now. And now the waiting game begins. With the story and characters still very much fresh in my mind, it’s probably a bad idea to being working on crafting this first draft into something publishable.

Finding the Balance

I know I’ve been relatively quiet on twitter and Facebook these past few years but that’s primarily because I’ve been tweeting under my legal identity. Writing about the appalling state of politics in the world doesn’t feel appropriate on my author site or accounts, even though it’s something I did regularly in the past.
