Merry Christmas To All!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!

I know it’ll a little early (not as early as the shopping centre decorations though) but I thought I’d say it now as Christmas Day is always flat out visiting family for me.

I’ve finished reading the Song of the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce and it is simply awesome. I’ve said it before but if you haven’t yet read this series, you should get your hands on it. I’m now re-reading the Immortals series also by Pierce. Set in the same universe as the Song of the Lioness, it’s just as amazing.

As for my own writing, I hit 50k words on Blessed Cursed last night so I am very happy about that. If I keep this pace up, I hope to finish it in the first few months of the new year. I may be looking for some Beta readers around March so please let me know if you are interested.

Anyways I had best get back to the old grind. Thank you all for your support during 2015. I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and that 2016 be a great year.

Update: Short Stories from the Elements & NaNoWriMo

Hey Internet Peeps,

Last week was the last Short Story from the Elements. I hope you enjoyed them 🙂 Feels strange to think they were written so long ago. It’s simply amazing how time flies. I remember when this year was just starting and now all the shopping centre’s have their decorations up! Crazy.

This year’s NaNoWriMo is not going so well for me. I was sick last week and have fallen behind. I honestly don’t think I’m going to be able to catch up but I won’t give up. I’m trying to get myself into a strict schedule so I make up the difference.

My current WIP is sitting at roughly 40k words. I’m really enjoying writing this one as it’s very different to the Amethyst Series. I’m loving the opportunity to stretch my author legs and try something else. Not that I don’t love my Amethyst series but it’s nice to do something else for a change. Maybe if you guys ask nicely, I’ll post up an extract 🙂

Well I had best get back to it. Those worlds aren’t going to create themselves.

Stay Safe out there guys.

Byes!

NaNoWriMo 2015

Hey guys, I must be crazy because this year I’m doing NaNoWriMo again.

For those unfamiliar, that stands for National Novel Writing Month. In the month of November, writers from all around the world attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in those short 30 days. I’m going to be attempting to add that word count to my current WIP, The Blessed Cursed. I have high hopes but it’s going to take dedication. I’ll post updates throughout the month.

Thanks for your support and wish me luck!

Short Stories from the Elements

Hi Guys & Gals,

As some of you who have followed my website for a while know, back in 2013 I tried to create an online webseries called the ‘Arena of Champions’. Unfortunately due to other projects I just didn’t have the time to continue it. I was only able to do the first few entries. I created a character for each element and put together a little back story for them. Fire, Air, Water and Ground were posted up in 2013 but eight more elements never had the chance to shine.

During the next few weeks I’d like to share with you the ones which never got posted. I going to post the first up tomorrow and will add another one each Friday for eight weeks. All the posts end with the character being drawn in to the ‘Arena’ as they were meant to fight each other. The winner would be chosen depending on who the readers voted for.

I am thinking of starting up another webseries which follows the story of one of these characters and would like to know your favourite. Please feel free to comment on any which you like and I just may choose to write further about them. 🙂
