Heading for the finish line

I’m currently at 80k words on my second novel. It’s been 16 months to date. I’m hoping to get it finished by the end of this year. If not, it’ll be a case of ‘new year, new book release’.

Grim determination to break through

On the 6th & 7th of October, I’ll be attending my second convention, namely Grimmfest in Manchester. I’m excited at the prospect of meeting sci-fi and horror buffs and I shall be there for those days promoting my work. Hope to see some of you there! Check out the official site for full details of the event at: http://www.grimmfest.com

Rooted in the occult

I’m into chapter seven of my current WIP, around 49k words. It won’t be long before the story shifts in its timeline and I introduce new characters, taking it along a new path to the ultimate outcome of what started in 1847. At this point, my initial characters are spending time among indigenous tribespeople of the Amazon, to come away with the key to unlock a series of disastrous events in the future. I can’t really say more than that without giving away too much about the story itself.

Has been an age, so many things to announce

Ok, where to start? The planned audiobook project stalled because the narrator I had lined up to do it decided to back out of the deal. So, I’m going to narrate the book myself. I’m currently creating an audio booth, which has taken longer than anticipated. Watch this space. I’m now 40k words into novel number two at the beginning of chapter six. I attended my first convention at Easter, which was Follycon in Harrogate, at the Majestic Hotel (see pics). I’m booked for Grimmfest in Manchester in October. Also, I kicked my writing room into shape (see pic also) and I’m dividing my time between marketing my first novel via bricks and mortar stores, online, and penning Nexilexicon. I shall be aiming to be more active with updates on here.
