I’m wagging my proverbial tail because we finally have a cover for the last instalment of the Season’s War series, SUMMER VEIL, and frankly, it is gorgeous. Rich, vivid and very much in our style. I’m incredibly proud because this time, we contracted a very talented artist, and, oh man, she delivered. (I’m going toContinue reading “We got the cover … and that’s a surprise”

Lunch break rush.
Today was a little insane. At work day like every day. Sick and injured, running through ED like we have revolving doors and in the midst of this me. A misbegotten author who sucks in marketing counting the time to enrol our book in the new SPFBO. For those who don’t know what SPFBO is,Continue reading “Lunch break rush.”
The dread of the Newsletter
For those of you who are not deeply invovled in the writing world let me tell you it is a badge of honour for every writer to have a robust mailing list. Those are our readers who signed up for regular contact via newsletter or new release announcements and we (the authors) treat it likeContinue reading “The dread of the Newsletter”
Two patients in a price of one – release week fog.
The release of Spring Blight is this Friday, and I admit I’m equally excited as tired about it. This and my endless week of covering the NHS doctors’ strike made my brain shut down to the point I doubted my sanity. On the last shift, I picked up the patient, let’s call her Dawn JohanasContinue reading “Two patients in a price of one – release week fog.”
Wet Rat Saturday
Mark and I got a little writing crazy sitting at home and finishing the last book in Season’s War series, so yesterday, he dragged me out to town for shopping.

To be indie – not as I imagined
When I thought of becoming a writer, I imagined spending hours writing a book and many more editing and polishing it until it matched my standards. What I didn’t foresee was how many collateral things I would have to learn. If you become a self-published power machine, you must do it all yourself until youContinue reading “To be indie – not as I imagined”
Sunday Snippet – Spring Blight
Slowly rising, the witch created a shield in her mind. The mirror spell Skarbnik taught her in the Grey mountains had already saved her life once before, and with her mind protected, Ina felt more confident about facing the malicious spirit in her own domain. ‘Leave her,’ The witch commanded, pulling out her sword. MamunaContinue reading “Sunday Snippet – Spring Blight”
Spring Blight – Cover reveal
“Chaos and the wicked soul know no rest.” (Old folk proverb) Ina has no time to enjoy domestic life with Mar. As soon as life settles down after the Winter War, King Rewan calls his Royal Witch to give her a new task. Southern rebellion, crops dying, and an endless stream of assassins attacking theContinue reading “Spring Blight – Cover reveal”
To me to you and a bit of paranoia
Last week wasn’t kind to us. First, I caught tonsillitis then Mark started coughing, and we passed the infections to each other, leaving us both feeling incredibly miserable. This, of course, affected our work and the release schedule so we are now so far behind I am worried we may not achieve the April releaseContinue reading “To me to you and a bit of paranoia”
