Dark Mist is the prelude to The Sandman Never Sleeps both to be released this year. Originally Dark Mist wasn't to be separate merely a flashback in the Sandman. As I discovered (as most writers do) the characters had other ideas and the flashback…Continue

I decided to create a website to help market my stories for when they are in print. It was FREE to create the site with a company called Webnode. They have lots of templates and styles and you can adapt and tweak the site to your own preference.
My site is still in the early stages but up and running all the same. The only cost I incurred was the price of the domain name for 12 months it was £11.99 (approx $18). Yes there are companies out there that provide the domains a little…Continue
I'm a traditional writer armed with a pad and good pen, but often I use my laptop to write stories in manuscript form. As a reader I prefer 'real' books rather than e-readers, but I understand the convenience of the latter. The tool I have started to use recently is a digital voice recorder, for the ideas that pop in the mind when a pad and pen are not in easy reach, ie when driving.
The one I bought was £27 a little more expensive than stationary but very convenient especially as I…Continue

Being an author has its good and bad points. As a creator, when the words flow its an amazing feeling that you have invented new prose to entertain and help escapism to people who do not work at their dream job.
The down side to being creative is that you're constantly nagged by ideas, stories and characters.
I'm going to be displaying a sneaky peek from my first full length novel exclusively on Authors.com.
Anyone who wishes to see further chapters please let me know, I'm looking for constructive feedback.
I will displaying said peek later this week.

I have a love:hate relationship and it is with technology. Don't get me wrong I agree with technology, especially for medical advances to cure people of disease or serious illness. And of course technology is great for writers to get their influence, message or stoires out there into the big wild universe.
But on the flip side I hate the fact that we rely on technology so much, example you're out shopping in the supermarket and you need to ask your partner what else you need in the…Continue

Finally finished writing chapters 19 and 20 of my first full length novel. These chapters I found especially difficult as they are written as a flashback and are pivotal to the storyline.
I confused myself on numerous occasions and had to keep referring back to early notes on the plot, now I believe I can move the story forward and have the book in first draft form by the end of Feb earlier March. With a few to self publishing by June.
