For the past six weeks I’ve been participating in the Clarion West write-a-thon. I’ve won two sponsors (thank you @SikesAaron and @transliterata – your flash fictions will be with you hopefully by the end of the hols) and written 36k. But how have I done in this final week? Because really, to have hit my […]Read more "Clarion West Write-a-Thon Round-up"
So here we are at week five, almost at the end of the road for the Write-a-thon. I’ll have one more update after the fact and two flash fictions to write, oh my! What fun 😀 Down to brass tacks then. How have I done this week? Brace yourselves. Go ahead. I’ll wait. *waits* I […]Read more "Clarion West Write-a-thon Update: Numero Cinco & The Eloquent Page Interview :)"
First order of business in this update is to send a big shout-out of thanks to my two sponsors! Many, many thanks! Have raised $30 thus far, and am delighted!

I hit my 1k a day target, *loud crazy cheers* but a lot of those were rewriting words *less loud crazy cheers*. My count of entirely new words, as in words on brand new scenes, is 4k.

But enough of that… it’s beside the point. Down to business. So, how am I […]Read more "Clarion Write-a-thon Progress…"
In my ‘novels’ section you’ll see I’ve written a book called Coil, which is a bio-punk SF thriller and currently sits in my agent’s (heh, feels SO weird typing that) capable hands accumulating a secondary round of edits. In the mean time, I’ve been attempting to outline the follow up and, frankly, not having much […]Read more "Clarion Write-A-Thon and a bit of a moan… OK, a lot of a moan."
