Recently you may have noticed that there’s fewer posts here. Why? Well, it’s all because of my first novel which has been taking all my energy.
I’m editing the first draft – all 156,000 words of it – and making good progress. Perhaps early 2020 I’ll be able to share some of it with you; but it has to be in an acceptable state first.
Which isn’t to say my short stories have been neglected. In October 2019 I released my second short story collection, Sex and the Single Cosmonaut, details of which you can find here. I’m pretty proud of this one, I feel my writing’s matured and I am starting to understand the craft of writing a little better. But of course I’m biased, it’s up to you the reader to judge so I’d encourage you to buy it and let me know what you think or, better yet, post a review either where you bought it or over on Goodreads.
I have eight short and flash fiction pieces that I will post in 2020, so stay tuned for those. I’ve also got three short story ideas on paper just waiting for my time and energy to write them up. Trouble is, one of them looks like it has the capacity to be novel number two.
So drop by occasionally and see what’s up. Middle of 2020 should see some real activity here!
And always, to those of you who have followed this blog, a sincere and heartfelt thank you. You don’t know just how encouraging that simple act can be.
