Amanzimtoti Ghost Stories

Hey all, I’m planning to release a Halloween-themed novella at the end of October, and though it will be a part of my Amanzimtoti series of novels, it will be a pre-series, stand-alone story, depicting Wayne and Kyle as they were before the event that changed everything.

The Rough Draft: February Round-Up

February has officially become the Month of the Hermit for me! Not a bad thing at all between the oft-unpredictable Scottish weather and the fact I had a novel to finish. It’s been a great month in spite of- or thanks to?- both of these things and I’m settling back into the family home with far…

The Rough Draft: January Round-Up

January has been a bit of a whirlwind month for me- most of it good, some of it… pending a trial-run as we head into February, and a wee bit of it rather saddening! Some of the whirlwind included, but was not limited to: finally publishing my novel in print format (nope, still not shutting up about…
