The Book Of Bera Part One: Sea Paths

The first in a brand new series of Viking adventure fantasy novels

Guess what?

I'm still working on the first draft of the sequel, Obsidian. But also the ink sketches are slowly coming together, using the research I did long ago for our debut novel. I gave a talk on Tuesday this week to a local Betaplus group, who were an engaged, intelligent and kind audience. It was about the contemporary author's use of technology, including the writing tool, Scrivener, and of course I detailed the Unbound model, compared to self-publishing. Most importantly, my managing editor supplied me with a full account of the publication process, most of which I didn't know. As soon as the production manager sends my revised 'critical path' to publication, I will update you all.

And the YouTube video? It's not a mistake: I taught myself knitting a week or so ago. Suggestions of what I'm up to on a postcard, please. Otherwise known, in the digital age as 'comments'.

Well, armour made from tough, lustrous Icelandic seaweed, a beautiful pattern emerging from a novice knitter. Impressive! Who, what are Betaplus?

I think it's some form of doggie daywear!

Very good, you three! In fact, my next update will reveal some more ideas. Carol - Betaplus (I think) is part of the whole U3A concept, of continuing stimulating ideas and discussion when full-time work is over. In this case, dealing with technology.
