Well, it’s been a very eventful week. On Tuesday the unthinkable happened…. My computer got poorly, and I don’t just mean a cold. We are talking, full on man flu!!!! I’d just finished writing the start of chapter eleven in Ethereal Longing. It’s a chapter I’d been planning for ages. I got it just right.… Continue reading Out With The Old, In With The NaNoWriMo

The publisher I’ve sent it to say there is a three to five week wait. Which I’m well aware is a very good time span. But let’s be… Continue reading The Waiting Game
Don’t you hate it when you’ve struggled all evening to find the right words. Your desperate to carry on with you story but no matter what you put it doesn’t sound right.

After weeks of editing, and ignoring my poor blog, “Ethereal Lives” has finally been sent to a publisher. I don’t mind admitting that I thought this day would never come.
