Belated Update

For anyone reading this who doesn't already know, I moved house on the 1st of October which is why I have been absent recently. I was unwell for the few days leading up to the move and I received my copyedits on Ashael Rising on the 29th of September so I'm sure you'll all excuse my time away from the blog.

We're settled in the new house, although still unpacking, and the copyedits were sent in to Unbound yesterday so I have a little bit of breathing room to get back to the blog.

I'm accepting prompts for flash fiction and if there's a particular topic you'd like me to do a blog post on then I'd love to hear about it. Drop me  line in the comments.

If you're interested in writing a guest post or being interviewed, get in touch through the contact form and I'd be happy to work something out with you.

While I wait for the next step with the book, I have two other projects in mind. First, I'll be working on a short story for the Unbound Short Story Prize and then I'll be writing a piece, most likely a novella, set in the Arctic. I'm cold just thinking about it! I'll keep you updated on how it all progresses.

I recently joined Patreon - a site not unlike this, that allows creators to receive funding direct from their fans in exchange for all sorts of cool rewards. I've decided to give it a try, writing soem flash fiction. So if you enjoy what you read on y blog or you just can't wait for Ashael Rising, do check out my page there. And even if you're not interested in my flash fiction, you should check out patreon anyway, it is overflowing with talented people.

Take care of yoursleves,
