Aquilifer is Out!

Again, not a particularly lengthy post, but just a little heads-up to say that my short story, Aquilifer, is finally out as an eBook on Amazon! For the small price of £0.99 you can devour the 6000ish words and find out what Orbus and Brauda get up to in the weeks following the end of […]

2500 Hits… Last Week

Well. Shit. This kind of snuck up on me when I wasn’t looking. In the chasm of time since my last blog, I’d kind of forgotten how much the follower count tends to jump each time I post (more because I retweet each one too and post it on my official Facebook than any other […]

A New Year’s Update

Well. So much for getting back to blogging regularly. For real, the title of this post was originally going to be An Autumnal Update. But then, as time slunk by and the year turned, I begrudgingly retitled it to A Winter Update. But still, it isn’t quite 2022 yet, and I suppose that is something. […]

Hardback and Sides…

Yup, just when you think the hardback puns couldn’t get any worse. So this arrived in the post a few days ago, which rather feels like the final milestone on my first self-publishing journey. This is the third format the novel is now out in – the first two being eBook and paperback – and […]

No skin off my (hard)back…

God, for that pun alone I shouldn’t be allowed near a keyboard. So. I’ve been balancing the last few weeks post-book launch by getting some more marketing done (which is hard work, but kind of easier now I actually have a product out there), as well as making some more detailed notes about Book II, […]

Launch Day, Baby!

Ahoy! Just when I thought I wouldn’t be able to muster a reason to post this month… One thing I’ve come to realise, going down the self-publishing route, is that you end up relying on many other people’s schedules as well as your own. Editors, cover designers, formatters, as well as whichever platform you’re publishing […]

Another Month, Another ARC Review

Hello, peeps and creeps. Forgot this blog existed? Don’t feel bad. So did I. After a fairly half-baked promise last post to get back on the blogging track once again, I’ve come to the rather tepid conclusion that delivering content both lengthy and engaging consistently each week is probably not a realistic goal. While time, […]

1500 Hits. 1 Prologue.

Well, I suppose the title says it all. I was so caught up with the novelty of having the novel cover on display for everyone to see when a very important milestone for this website almost completely slipped past me… My, my. I’m humbled, as per freakin’ usual, that this poultry blog has gone down […]

An Update and a Cover

So. I think I always knew, when I started this site, that committing to (at least) one blogpost a week was always a foolhardy gambit, and one destined to fail at some point. In hindsight, I’m amazed it took this long for it to happen – and to be honest, I hardly doubt if anyone’s […]

Reflections On A Birthday

*Gasp!* A personal, self-indulgent post! On a blog devoted to nothing more than shamelessly promoting my own upcoming work and stirring up interest! Who’d have thought? …As if every word that comes out of my mouth isn’t self-indulgent. Anyway. Carrying on. A few days ago, I completed my twenty-fifth turn around the sun. The day […]
