Got a nice review. It goes through the book in detail, points out flaws, and says nice stuff. Nice and balanced and they liked it which is also good! Does worry me that later books are just not as good, though!`Read the review here

Well some of my stock has gone missing. It seems it was delivered to Amazon storage down the road, instead of to me and my house. Amazon won't give them back and Parcel Force are claiming it's nothing to do with them, despite being the ones who took them there. So that's good fun!

Bristol Con was good. I sold copies, met writers, publishers, reviewers, the kinds of people I need to meet! Next year I plan to do a pannel and sell many more copies!

Nearly at 60k with Children of the Shadow. Trying to make sure that ends are tied up, but that things still happen!

Not long now until the convention. Am a little nervous, never done one before. Got sweets, for people who donate to cat's protection or buy a book, and a few cards and things to sell, along with the books and bookmarks to give away. Just hoping that people actually buy the book. Mum is coming with me so at least I won't feel an idiot sitting at the table alone.

Writing is coming along. I always say that, but it is. I had to make an edit to book 2, to have that plot more developed and to fit in with what I'm doing in 3. Thankfully editing hasn't started on that yet (though should be soon) so it wasn't a problem. Candale has made a few shocking realisations, one that was obvious to some readers from the start. He's a little slow sometimes.

Introduced an affiliate for my publisher, so if you're looking for something new to try, check it out. Banner on front page.

This is the flyer that my new webdesigner put together for me to take to Bristol Con along with bookmarks for promotional whatnot. Looks fab, no? As does the rough look to the new look website! I've also ordered extra books, including more part 2s to take along. The convention, and the website, are the only places in the UK to buy part 2 at the moment.

Children of the Shadow is coming along. I've ditched the old prophet idea, I think Candale has actually met far too many, and it seems to be flowing better as a result. So far. Although it's not coming along as fast as I would have liked, it's still getting there and soon things will be coming to a dramatic head, which will be good to write.

Have now set up paypal so that anyone in the UK or Europe can order copies of my book directly from me, cheaper than Amazon.Co.UK.
And to prove that I do have those extra copies to sell:

TADA! :)

The Shadow Seer part 2 is now available from, hopefully be out in the UK before Xmas. If you have the ebook version, this part is included, but feel free to buy it again :)

Ordered the bookmarks for BristolCon to promote part 1 and 2, and ordered 20 copies of the book to sign and sell. Also looked into getting a signing at a local bookshop, though they are likely to say no, they want to see the book first, which I can do.

I finally got some writing under way, I think. The chapters are running short, but that can be fixed, in time, I'm sure. At the moment I'm just trying to get what I know done, Candale is about to have some long overdue realisations (god that boy is daft!) and a bit of a shake, which is also long overdue :)

Well I have booked my table for Bristol Con, so come along, buy my book, get it signed, or just say HI. Bristol Con website has all the info.

Children of the Shadow is coming along, I think! I'm at a point where I need to start developing Candale's feelings for a certain someone, now that the inital panic has worn off. And it's difficult to go from panic, at learning that someone has feelings for him, to him having those feelings back. It's also difficult because Candale is a bit dense and isn't really aware why his feelings are changing and because, as a prophet, Candale has a lot of dreams already and I don't want to appear to be a one trick pony. But, people have dreams, every night, so there's not much I can do about Candale also having a lot of them! :)
