An update

Right, it appears I haven’t updated my site since February.  I’ve had a stern word with myself about being a lazy fuck-wit and I’m back now.

What have I been up to, I hear you ask?  Well, apart from the day job keeping me busy, I’ve had my head down finishing and polishing my new novel, which is tentatively titled, The Black Stone.  It’s what I’d term a horror fantasy and is about growing up, revenge and demonic possession.  When I’ve written a blurb and created, or paid someone to create, a cover (depending on how well mine turns out), I’ll post them here first.

I’ve also, to give my brain a rest from the novel, written a few short stories which I’ll drip feed into the world as and when.  Eventually I’ll create a collection but this might be a couple of years away as I want to make sure I offer value and quality and short stories tend to be something I do when not in the midst of novel writing, or when I need to ‘rest’ a story for a while.

I’ve also been spending quite a lot of time thinking about (daydreaming as many people call it), plotting and researching my next big project, which I’m excited about starting but need to get a few things out of the way first.

I’ve also done a bit of camping, but not as much as I’d hoped for this time of year and have got to see seals and diving gannets and lots of other wildlife but alas, no whales or dolphins as yet but I’m back near the coast near the end of this month so there’s time yet.

Anyway, if you are reading this then I hope all is good in your world and I hope to post some news and updates soon.
