PROMPT #1: The Egg, Part 2 (Fantasy)

Part One Vetta lay before the fire, stretched out with her great head on her huge paws, looking every bit the house cat, if she weren’t ten times larger. Shadows flickered across her black and orange stripes, as Kas held up the egg. Eggs liked heat. So they kept this one as close to itContinue reading “PROMPT #1: The Egg, Part 2 (Fantasy)”

Spin The Dawn – Elizabeth Lim [Books]

Firstly, look at that cover. It is absolutely stunning, and I spent ages just looking at both before and after reading Spin The Dawn. This novel is the story of Maia, a young woman who wants to become the best tailor in the land. However, standing in the way is the fact she is a woman,Continue reading “Spin The Dawn – Elizabeth Lim [Books]”

The Queen of The Tearling – Erika Johansen [Books]

Dear friends, One thing I want you to understand, is I will never disguise my feelings about a book on this blog. I will, however, always try to find the good in something. But if I say I liked a book, I liked it. If I gush about how great it is, I absolutely lovedContinue reading “The Queen of The Tearling – Erika Johansen [Books]”

The Near Witch – V.E. Schwab [Books]

I only recently started reading Victoria Schwab’s novels. I started with City of Ghosts, then read A Darker Shade of Magic, shortly before going to an author event in Waterstones, Cardiff, where I picked up the next two Shades of Magic books and The Near Witch, money being the only thing stopping me from pickingContinue reading “The Near Witch – V.E. Schwab [Books]”

Twisted Tales: Mirror, Mirror – Jen Calonita [Books]

Five of the previous novels were written by Liz Braswell, with Reflection, the Mulan story, writtenContinue reading “Twisted Tales: Mirror, Mirror – Jen Calonita [Books]”

Publication Updates

So seeing as this blog is supposed to be as much about my writing as it is about other’s, I thought I’d just drop a quick note to confirm my latest publication updates. Details of my short stories can always be found on the About & Publications page, but I know maybe not everyone visits thatContinue reading “Publication Updates”

Road To Priesthood (Fiction)

I thought I’d try to post up short, flash fiction on here, hopefully regularly. One, writing it helps me play around with larger novels and stories I’m working on, and two, it’ll hopefully give anyone who reads this something a little entertaining to check out. If it, like this one, is part of a larger world thenContinue reading “Road To Priesthood (Fiction)”

A World of Pure Imagination

Today I received some good news. A story of mine has been published on the website CommuterLit.  The story itself (titled The Mountain’s Reach) is actually part of a much larger world, and I’m currently working on a novel plus a few other short stories set in the same world. So I figured I’d useContinue reading “A World of Pure Imagination”
