The First Review At The Eloquent Page

Everything seems to be going at a hundred miles an hour at the moment. One minute I'm waiting for the book to come out, the next it's out, people are reading it, I've been interviewed and now reviewed. I don't think any of it has really sunk in yet and I'm like a listless over-excited [...]

New Interview Over At Manga Maniac Cafe

I took a few days off from the day job so to use up some of my remaining holiday entitlement and to try and get my Xmas shopping done, but as you can imagine, things have been a little crazy. Yesterday was spent following the madness that is Amazon Sales Rank and willing the book [...]

Deciding My Next Writing Project

The agent search continues and it’s quite tiring.
