December Update

Christmas is just around the corner and everything is starting to wind down at the end of the year. I’ve got a couple more weeks at work before I break up for a lovely break over the holidays, so I thought I would do a quick update. I’m still editing the novel, it’s gone throughContinue reading “December Update”

Recharged

I’m back from my holiday, feeling refreshed and recharged and ready to face the second half of the year. I saved up some favourite books I’d been holding onto for months, and a couple of new ones, and then spent most of the week lying by a pool, drinking cold beer and reading in theContinue reading “Recharged”

Projects Update July 2013

Thought I would just do a quick general post on the projects I’m currently working on. The Novel – The next draft has gone off to my agent for her feedback. I’ve timed it just right so that I can go on holiday in a few days and I won’t spend the entire time pondering,Continue reading “Projects Update July 2013”

Holiday Reads

It’s almost time for my summer holiday so I thought I’d do a quick post on what I’m going to be reading while relaxing by the pool. I’m not a fast reader at all, but when on holiday with few distractions, I can get through about four or five books in a week. So IContinue reading “Holiday Reads”

We’ve got one!

I’m delighted to say that I now have an agent. I am represented by Juliet Mushens of The Agency Group. That’s the short version for those who want to skip to the end. It’s taken a long, long time to get here. I’m still trying to process it and also work out how long, butContinue reading “We’ve got one!”

I’m always curious to see other people’s creative workspace and what they surround themselves with to help them write orContinue reading “My Workspace”

Eastercon Report

Eastercon is done for another year. This was my second year at the event and despite only being there for only a couple of days due to family commitments, I had an excellent time and met some wonderful people. So I attended on Friday and Saturday, took part in one comics related panel on FridayContinue reading “Eastercon Report”

YA Comic Books

This idea has been somewhere in the back of my mind for a while, but it came together last week when Marvel Comics announced that they are launching a series of YA novels, based on their superhero characters. The first two announced are She-Hulk and Rogue, written by Marta Acosta and Christine Woodward and theyContinue reading “YA Comic Books”

One Man Army

When I was growing up it seemed to me that there weren’t that many interesting books to read. Looking back, I know I was wrong. Obviously. However, at the time, I read fairly   the fantasy genre and I went through pretty much everything I could find. Now I now read across several genres andContinue reading “One Man Army”
