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 […]

Legion That Was – Review by Kayla C. Reviews

A little while ago, the lovely Kayla Cook – an author and book reviewer with a website dedicated to each – agreed to do an advance review of Legion That Was. I had the pleasure of receiving and reading it, today. And even more delightful was this (literally) glowing assessment right at the top: A […]

A Thousand Hits, A Smattering of Hints

Oh, my. Well. That particular milestone crept up on me a lot quicker than I’d anticipated. It seems incredibly churlish to whine or complain about the rate at which the hit counter is racking up hits, but still. It’s scuppered my plans a little, but I suppose there are worse problems to have when building […]

Legion That Was – Cast of Characters

Finally, getting the blogging back on track. I’ve dropped two fairly heavy and in-depth blogposts in the last few weeks, and covered quite a broad spectrum of writing- and publishing-related content, so I thought today it was only fair to come back to something more relevant. A little while back I blogged about the premise […]

‘So, What’s Your Novel About?’

The title says it all, really. Two weeks in, and it’s safe to say I can’t really avoid the subject any more. In my last two posts, I’ve alluded to a few vague facts about the novel, none of which give you any real feel or ‘hook’ into the story. If I’m going to keep […]
