Writing for You   I’ve been bummed lately. I’m not even gonna lie about about it.   “Don’t post about negativity.”   Blogging 101 – and today… I don’t care.   I’ve been stuck in a little bit of a rut and what I want you to know is how to conquer that because right now I feel like the world is at my feet rather than hanging over my head. I’ve… Read More

The first time I was asked when would I call myself a successful author, the answer was easy; if I was writing full time it meant people where buying enough of my book that I could do what I wanted.   That was when I started four years ago.   It doesn’t feel that long, but an aeon of time has passed, so much of my life has changed. Much of it… Read More

So you signed up for Nanowrimo… good job!   There are a lot of guides out there, so I’m just going to tell you what works for me, take of it what you will. First things first – Nano isn’t hard… for a vetran writer.  Stephen King says write 2k a day, well you only have to write 1667 for Nano.   And you can do that two ways; Panster – someone… Read More

You’re doing what?!? Writing a 21 book/novella series… and in my sleep Cthulhu eats my brain. This came about thanks to @lilcrow during a flurry of twitter when she asked me what I wrote, and I blabbed about my series, later realising I’d given her the complete wrong impression. She’d assumed I’d actually finished this mammoth task, and flattering as it was, I’m a long way off. But I am determined… if… Read More

I promised a friend of mine that I’d let them know how I come up with the unique names for all my characters. Originally I debated doing this, I didn’t want to give away a resource that someone else could use. And as soon as I said out loud why I didn’t want to do it, the stupidity of not sharing it was only exacerbated by the selfishness. So here are my… Read More

Right here actually, I was right here working my behind off. I’ve flung myself into the yet unnamed 3rd book of the Last Prophecy Series, and its proving to be beautiful but… a tad political, requiring oodles of research but that’s for another post when I DO have a title for the book. I’m also neck deep in the reviews for Queen of Spades Awakening – and being told by my beta… Read More

It didn’t dawn on me until I was sitting at the launch, the display out for everyone, that I felt like I could be excited! The local Mayor was coming to give a speech, my Dad flew down from the NSW coast unexpectedly, but I didn’t feel until that moment that I’d really done it. As people started turning up it started to pass in a blur, but I got so many… Read More

Its coming, its so close and I am so excited to start talking about it! SIX WEEKS TO GO until The Well of Youth will be officially released and available for purchase! To celebrate this culmination of years of hard work and passionate creativity, I will be hosting a launch event in my home town of Trentham. I invite you to join me to celebrate not only the release of the first… Read More

The Kickstarter is for all of you who have supported and encouraged me, followed my work and become fascinated by the story I am telling. Please go to this Kickstarter Page to see what we have an offer and what contributions can get… Read More
