YAWB: My Journey to Journeys

One of my Journeys co-authors, Juliet E. McKenna, who wrote the story The Road To Hadrumal, has kindly hosted a guest post by yours truly over at her place, where I talk about some of the real-life back story to the creation of my own story, A Warm Heart. The collection is still available for a steal – just 99p at Amazon for anotherContinue reading “YAWB: My Journey to Journeys”

YAWB: Journeys Out Today!

Woodbridge Press’s first fantasy anthology, Journeys, is out today and, like a Panini sticker book, is the ridiculously low price of 99p for the first week before it reverts to its RRP of… whatever Woodbridge deigns it to be. My story, A Warm Heart, about a trainee assassin on his first proper assignment who is unwillinglyContinue reading “YAWB: Journeys Out Today!”

YAWB: Invitations To The In-Crowd

When quizzed by the hostContinue reading “YAWB: Invitations To The In-Crowd”

YAWB: Disappointment

The other day I was directed to Emma Green’s blog about the constant stream of disappointments that one experiences as an author. Writerly angst is always in vogue among us creative types, isn’t it? Green’s experience sounds quite painful, but also, dare I say it, rather naïve. That might make me seem rather heartless, and I do sympathiseContinue reading “YAWB: Disappointment”

YAWB: Canniballs!

To accompany some of my releases this year I’m releasing a second edition of “Eat Yourself, Clarice!” It seems to me that in the time of post-truths, fake news and the ironic juxtaposition of pushbacks against Government surveillance initiatives and the individual’s ever-increasing desperation for visibility against the cultural backdrop, that the content is more relevantContinue reading “YAWB: Canniballs!”
