It’s been a while since I joined in on the weekly Snippet Sunday and Rainbow Snippets sharing. Things have bounced about a bit here, but they’re settling down now, which means more time for me to write.
This snippet comes from To Target the Heart, the second main novel of the spellster series that I’m currently writing, which is about two princes falling in love, only for the queen to announce a competition to become her son’s wife.
I’m hip deep in chapter two of To Target the Heart. By that, I mean Darshan’s pov is currently just him drooling over Hamish. But I’ve just realised I’ve sent the modestly-tall 5’6 Darshan into a land where “average” would be over six foot. It’s a little wavy at how I came to that… the… Continue reading A Land of Giants
To Target the Heart finally has a complete first chapter! I expected it to happen about a week earlier, and probably would’ve been if my birthday hadn’t seen me with pharyngitis.

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…
Happy 2018, everyone! Last year I set myself a few writing goals in the beginning of the New Year. A lot of them didn’t get done, with In Pain and Blood commanding much of my time. I did get a few more books read than 2016, but fell well short of the twelve I’d set myself… … Continue reading 2018 Goals and Other News
With the background to In Pain and Blood all settled, my muse has turned her worldbuilding attention to the next in the lineup: To Target the Heart. This one’s a little trickier, being that the narration will be split in two. But also fun in having the Main Characters, Darshan and Hamish, trying to find a… Continue reading The Weirdness of Worldbuilding
