An Autumnal Update

Another blogpost, another inexplicable gap in my life to account for. Once more, quite a bit more time elapsed this time round than I hoped for, and this time I don’t have a great deal to say for the (unexpectedly long) absence. I wasn’t really up to a great deal besides working and squeezing in […]

Legion That Was Turns 1!

I have a decent track record on this blog for missing important anniversaries and milestones, or at least letting them whoosh by before remembering them, but this time round I’m fairly on the money for once. Today marks 365 days since Legion That Was debuted on Amazon KDP. My humble little tome has turned 1! […]

Shadow of the Blurb

Well. As I’m tired of saying whenever I blog about the hit count, that happened a lot sooner than I expected. The perils of sharing a post on my Facebook and Twitter together. And as promised, a little quid pro quo for the milestone. And that’s me done for July.

Summer Update, Had Me A Blast…

Hello hello, and back I come. I felt sorry to break a relatively decent streak of regular blogposts for yet another undefined hiatus, but this time I actually had a half-decent excuse for my absense. For the first time since 2019, I was able to return to the boards and get back on the Oxford […]

A Bloggiversary and a Milestone

Another month, another rather longer absence than I expected. Hey now, I’m shambolic but at least I’m consistent. As Mr Eliot once said, April really can be the cruellest month sometimes. I was genuinely hoping that March and April would have a few more posts than my habitual one-a-month, but as is depressingly usual, sudden […]

Ode to an Odyssey – Have A Free Story!

Hello all! Apologies, once again, for another record-breaking hiatus. (Well, okay, 6 weeks for me isn’t quite record-breaking, but the point still stands). I’m resurfacing now winter has finally passed with a little bit of news. Remember that 1500 word story on the theme of Troy, that I wrote for the LSA Classical Competition? Well, […]

Stories Two, (Half-baked) Ideas Several

February is here! January blues are (apparently) behind us. The cold weather, sadly, isn’t. I wouldn’t mind quite so much if the weather was at least consistent – but frankly, days that alternate between 2⁰C all the way to above 10⁰C make planning your time ahead that bit more frustrating. Particularly if you have a […]

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 […]

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 […]
