Guest Post at Ragnarok Publications

I recently wrote a guest post for the lovely people over at Ragnarok Publications about some of the things I think are the hardest part about being a writer. This post was partly inspired by a discussion I saw elsewhere on social media and it inspired me to write down my thoughts on the subject.Continue reading “Guest Post at Ragnarok Publications”

Book 3 is away…

It is getting close to  the end of February and it’s time for another quick update. I’ve been pretty quiet on here and haven’t written a new post in a while as I’ve had my nose to the grindstone. The copy edit for book 3 came in and it was two and a bit weeks ofContinue reading “Book 3 is away…”

February worklog

I thought I would do a quick post about what I’m up to at the moment on various things. So, book 2, Bloodmage, is completely done and dusted. My publisher, Orbit books, has just sent me the latest version of the cover and I think it looks really good. So that is all set toContinue reading “February worklog”

Battlemage launch

Last week was the northern launch of Battlemage at Waterstones in Leeds, my local bookshop. It was a weird and wonderful night. Weird because I’ve gone to so many similar events in the past, sat in the audience, and listened to an author talk about their book and their world. So when I arrived andContinue reading “Battlemage launch”

The calm before the storm

Battlemage is officially published next week and at the moment I’m spending a fair bit of time reflecting. Not only looking ahead to what is about to happen with my first launch event at Waterstones in Leeds, and London the week  after, but I’m also looking backwards into the past. I was going to writeContinue reading “The calm before the storm”
