Monthly Round-Up: January 2016

(Cross-posted on the WriteClub blog)

I’m not a big fan of January. It’s a dark and dreary month, no bank holidays, and everyone’s broke after Christmas. So this is one month I’m glad to be nearing the end of, as it’s time once more to round up my writing-related activities.

COMING SOON

I’m pleased to say that SUFFER THE CHILDREN will be released in Spring by MuseItUp Publishing. This is a re-release of my first published novel, but it’s undergoing a whole new editing process. I don’t have a release date yet, but watch this space.

PUBLICITY

I was pleased to be a guest on David O’Brien’s blog this week, especially since I’m his first guest horror writer.  I’m talking about a previous experience that made me aware that not everyone likes horror writers.

WORK IN PROGRESS

Revisions to SPOTLIGHT ON DEATH continue at a good pace. The end is in sight on this manuscript now. I’ve also moved past the stage of thinking, “this manuscript is complete rubbish” to “actually, this manuscript’s not half bad after all.” This is usually followed by the “this manuscript is amazing! I rock” stage, and then finally back to the “this manuscript is rubbish” stage. But for now, I remain in a happy place about it. The fact that my editor is already looking forward to reading it gives me incentive to finish.

That’s about all the news for now. Join me next month, when hopefully we’ll be seeing longer days, warmer weather and maybe even the first signs that Spring is round the corner.

    It was great to have you on my blog. I had a hard time convincing my own mother to read my first novel, because it was about werewolves. My aunts have point blank refused to read it, despite my mother telling them it’s not very violent… what can you do?!
