The Spellster Timeline – Take II

Back in February, I started slotting the stories within the Spellster Series into a chronological sequence and, based on what I already had for In Pain and Blood, stepped forward and back in time thanks to my trusty Aeon Timeline program. There’s still quite a bit of refining to be done on exact dates, but… Continue reading The Spellster Timeline – Take II

Not-so-linear…

Part of the reason I don’t actually put a series number on the Spellster Series is due to the novels, the main ones at least, being stand alones. People should be able to read them in any order they choose, even if that order is likely to be the publication one. But sorting out the… Continue reading Not-so-linear…

An Unexpected Gift is live!

  Back before I was really even finished with In Pain and Blood, I kept getting pieces of story that happened after the main novel, but which also didn’t fit into the novel. I still get odd bits here and there, but nothing pulls as strongly as An Unexpected Gift did. An Unexpected Gift is 21k extra to In Pain and… Continue reading An Unexpected Gift is live!

Weekend Writing Warriors – #8sunday

So, because An Unexpected Gift comes out this weekend. I’m going to hop over to that for this week’s Weekend Writing Warriors, Snippet Sunday and Rainbow Snippets before going back to my WiP.

This piece actually carries on from the last time I shared a snippet: Tracker has tied a not-the-least-bit-bothered Dylan to the bed and teasing him with decisions of what he might do, the last of which he said was “But which to choose?” (Punctuation a little wonky to fit)

A New Map…

It’s hot. Too darn hot to think about anything other than staying cool and hydrated. 30°C to be exact. That’s indoors. Not that outside is much better with the lack of wind. We’ve never had AC either and our fans are just moving the warm air around. It’s humid, too, which means we can’t even escape… Continue reading A New Map…

Cover Makeover – An Unexpected Gift

Most of my stories wind up with a mock or temporary cover as I write them, it helps me think about the theme of the story and the plot. Often, I’ll think up whole scenes whilst fluffing about with covers.   When it came to An Unexpected Gift’s cover, I wanted simple. I see the… Continue reading Cover Makeover – An Unexpected Gift
