What a crazy end to the year it has been! My first novel, THE BOOK AND THE BLADE, was originally slated for release in September of this year but of course that didn't happen for a myriad of reasons. The new publication date is the 28th February, 2023, which bizarrely means my "debut" novel will … Continue reading I have news!
Now, don't get me wrong, I cocked up big time and my little novella was released into the wild well before I realised what was going on, but here we are... a published novella.

The above tweet is not only a shining example of the kind of dazzlingly witty offering I make over on that strange platform but a fair indication of my state of mind. I am trying to write, but my brain is like a sack of cats floating along a river... some ideas are treading water, … Continue reading Ideas count as productivity, right?
Let's be honest, I'm not particularly good at this whole 'professional author' gig. The truth is, I'm not entirely sure I am one anyway, and I certainly won't feel like I'm cresting that little hill until I hold my book in my hands. As I write this, my debut novel should have been out for … Continue reading The unprofessional professional
A lot has happened in a short space of time so I thought I'd write a little post to let everyone know what the flibbertygibbets is going on. - The Book and the Blade has a new release date - February 28th, 2023.
