11/09/2017 – 17/09/2017

Hi, everyone.

Well, this past week didn’t go completely as planned. The unannounced project took all week, and I still have a little left to do. Argh! However, I also did a proper voice read out-loud of Pixielated Evidence, and I received a proof copy through the post of another book.

So, this coming week. Well, one day is out, as I have visitors, but I will finish the unannounced project. I will. And I will check the proof. That will probably take me till Thursday, but don’t quote me on that. Then, rather than going on to HV 5, I’m going to write some short stories for submissions, just for a break from the norm. There are a few opportunities available and I want to give them a go. If, after a couple of days, I find that’s not working, I’ll revert, but I hope to submit to at least one. And as the stories are short, I should be able to get a draft of one each day. And, also because they’re short, I’ll be able to fit in editing easily around other stuff. We’ll see. The proof will be in next week’s post.

This week I have completed the following books:

  • The Deep Range by Arthur C Clarke (audio)
  • Gathering of Shadows by V E Schwab

See you all next week.

Hi, everyone.

What did I do this past week? Well, I have ordered the HV boxset proof, and I have read through and put Pixielated Evidence up for pre-order. I’ve also taken the decision to remove the series from Kindle Unlimited, so I’ll be able to put that wide in early October. I did some more on one of the unannounced projects, as well.

I’ve decided, rather than going straight into the next HV book, I’m going to finish the unnannounced project I’ve been working on, first. That will probably take me through till Thursday, as Tuesday is largely going to be a non-working day. Then, hopefully, I’ll start on HV5.

I haven’t completed reading any books this week.

See you next week.

28/08/2017 – 03/09/2017

Hi, everyone.

Well, the good news first. The new website is up and running. It took several days of stress doing it, but hey, that’s life. It might still need some tweaking and adding to, but most of the info from the old site has been transferred, and some new stuff added.

Okay, the rest isn’t bad news. I misled you there. 🙂 I did do the read out-loud of HV4, which I can now reveal is called Pixielated Evidence. I also uploaded the HV boxset in paperback format.

In the coming week, I’ll order the proof of the HV boxset and get the eBook uploaded. I’ll also do another read-through of Pixielated Evidence and hopefully get that uploaded for pre-order, as I’d like to start on the next one the following week. I also want to get more of the unnannounced projects done.

This past week, I finished the following books:

  • Duskfall by Christopher Husberg (audio)
  • A Darker Shade of Magicl by V E Schwab
  • Eren by Simon P Clark (audio)

Hope to see you again next week.

21/08/2017 – 27/08/2017

Hi, everyone.

This past week, I completed the Hunter Vampire Compilation, but I just need to look it over again on Tuesday (Monday is a Bank Holiday), before I upload the files. I also did the read out-loud of HV4. The other thing I’m doing, unexpectedly because things started going screwy, is redesigning my website. If you visit it in the next couple of days, things might not quite work as they’re supposed to. Sorry. 😦

In the coming week, I’ll continue with the website, do the uploading above and, hopefully, another edit of HV4. I intend to do a title reveal on Tuesday, so I’ll be giving it its proper name from then on.

I didn’t finish any books this week.

See you all next Monday.

15/08/2017 – 20/08/2017

Hi, everyone.

This past week I, as planned, typed up the edits for HV4 and prepared Ruled by Choices for publication. I’ve started uploading it, but haven’t quite finished yet. I also started putting together a couple of paperbacks. One, a compilation of Hunter Vampire stories, the other, a secret project for the moment.

During the coming week? Well, Monday is the launch for The Blood House, Part 3 of the Hunter Vampire Chronicles, so that’ll take up a bit of time on the day. Apart from that? I want to finish the Hunter Vampire compilation, and to create the eBook version, as well. The paperback won’t take too long. I only, basically, have to top and tail the paperback. All the story text is in and formatted. The eBook version won’t take long, either, as the text is all there, it just needs copying into a separate document. Once that’s done, I’ll be sitting on it for a while before launching it. The other paperback will be an ongoing thing for a while, but I hope to progress that a little each day. Also, I’d like to do a read out-loud of HV4. That is 1-2 days of work, so not too onerous.

This past week I have finished the following books:

  • Poison by Chris Wooding (audio)
  • A Shining in the Shadows by Beverley Lee

Hope to see you all again next week.


07/08/2017 – 13/08/2017

Hi, everyone.

I didn’t really have a plan for this past week, but I ended up doing a few things. First, I started to sort out Ruled by Choices. There’s still a little left to do. I also did a read-through of Hunter Vampire 4 and another paper edit.

This coming week I’ll be typing up that paper edit of HV4 and finishing off Ruled by Choices. I also want to put together a number of other boxsets. So, I think a lot of the time I won’t actually be writing. Sometimes, weeks are like that.

This week I finished reading one book:

  • City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

See you next week.

31/07/2017 – 06/08/2017

Hi, everyone.

This past week I managed the paper edit and transcription of the fourth Hunter Vampire story. I also did a final read out loud of The Blood House. I don’t think I’ll do another before release date, but you never know.

I don’t really have a plan for the coming week. I’ll probably sort out the final Ruled by Choices and possibly start writing Hunter Vampire five, as I now have an idea for that, but I might do something else instead. We’ll see.

This past week I have finished the following books (audio seems to be my favourite at the moment):

  • A Dark Inheritance by Chris D’Lacey (audio)
  • The Cat that Walked by Himself by Rudyard Kipling (audio)
  • Where my Heart Used to Beat by Sebastian Faulks (audio)

See you all next week.
