The Word Is…

…that there’s going to be a print version of Floodtide later this summer. The cover’s been done – it had to be a new one as the old one wasn’t the wraparound type required for a print book, and it was a chance to do something a bit different with the cover image. The reaction…



Easter Special on Floodtide!

I’m a little late posting this, as I’ve been away for the weekend at Eastercon. More on that elsewhere, in the next day or so. To coincide with Eastercon, I’m running a Kindle Countdown deal.

Such a lot going on

I know I haven’t updated this in a while, but there are several reasons for that. The main one is that we had some building work done at home from March to May, and so there were a lot of things I had to organise first, such as engaging an architect, getting planning permission sorted…
