Fancy a story?

Many days since I posted – my apologies! The reason is, I’ve been busy with Various Things, so without further ado, a list, in no particular order:

  • the new website: getting my mind round wordpress.org and Beaver Builder. It’s not too difficult, but still takes time. The longest was deciding on a theme, but that’s done now, so it’s a matter of working on the layout and getting some content together. Maybe ready towards the end of the month.
  • Making a Murder: six illustrated essays about the writing of a murder mystery. Plenty of humour, but informative too. To be released along with the new website – free to anyone signing up to my newsletter.
  • To The Right Place: a short story to appear in Dan Alatorre’s The Box Under The Bed, an anthology of scary stories. Due for release October 1st. Click here to pre-order your copy for just $0.99.
  • With Our Eyes Open: My own anthology of stories submitted to this year’s Book a Break short story competition. In the final stages of formatting. 34 stories on the theme of a journey. A great variety of voices, characters and situations that will take you everywhere from Nairobi to Pluto. Cover coming soon. Due for release 15th October – not to be missed!

So I’ve been pretty much tied to the computer. But still managed to take a few walks in the countryside round Le Beaucet, where we’re staying for a couple weeks. Just long enough to notice that it’s actually rather pretty.

Now, where was I? Ah, yes – better get back to editing that story…
