  • On the writing road again!

    On the writing road again!

    With five published novels under my belt within three story-lines, I no longer feel like the complete novice writer I once was, though i’m still struggling to figure out what the best writing routine is for me. The difference is, that to begin with I was also trying to figure out things like: – How I wanted to format my print books – there is no one style. Read more…

  • Release the Bats by DBC Pierre – A Review

    Release the Bats by DBC Pierre – A Review

    ‘You can be insecure and be a writer. You can be unsuccessful and be a writer. You can be a bad person and be a writer. You can be a drinker, a procrastinator, a freak. You can be compulsive, dependent, delusional, manic. You can be under house arrest. You can be on medications. You can be wrong. And be a writer. You just have to write. That’s where it gets tricky.

  • The Ashes of Time

    The Ashes of Time

    Last night I finished writing the second book in my Flames of Time series, a book entitled the Ashes to Time, and while I still have the editing and the commissioning of the cover art to do, I’m quietly confident I can have this book ready for publication in mid to late October, well before the Christmas rush.

    During the unexpected thunderstorm which blanketed the city last night a huge airship of obviously antique and arcane design appeared over 7th Avenue. Clearly in a state of serious disrepair the colossal craft was first thought to be derelict and devoid of human life, but after being boarded by city officials it was discovered the zeppelin was discovered to be fully crewed although the crew members were all in need of immediate medical attention.

    The Buddha is watching

    Six months ago as usual I came to Whitby for the Whitby Goth Weekend with friends and had another splendid time with a visit up to the Abbey for their Night of Victorian Gothic, several excellent meals in local restaurants with friends, and of course some spectacular live music performances from some great bands like The Spear of Destiny.

  • Ancient Sorceries . . .

    Ancient Sorceries . . .

    Well the days have definitely drawn in now, and as the wind blusters and blows it’s way around the house’s eves, acting for all the world like some sulky creature that likes nothing better than knock a few things over, I find myself increasingly drawn toward my fireside and a bit of toe toasting flame.

  • Live my creation! Live!

    Live my creation! Live!

    Well almost. I’m not quite at the stage of raising the lightening rod into the heavens in order to keep the electricity bill down, but I am starting to look at the weather forecast for the next few days to see if a convenient storm might be coming my way. My creation fortunately does not rely upon raiding the local mortuaries, or having a good cross-stitch, instead it all comes down to my writing, re-writing and editing of my next novel ‘Through Glass Darkly’, the first episode of which will be published around April of next year.

  • And . . . . . Restart . . . again!

    And . . . . . Restart . . . again!

    Well, while I’m now in the middle of the much needed long August bank holiday weekend, the lead up to the weekend has been a very frustrating if educational few days that has seen me trying out different blogging platforms before finally, (hopefully) settling on this site. Read more…
