Some good friends of mine have just opened up their own online business, Simpsons Sensory & Emotional Relief, selling a number of products that provide help and relief for children with various autism spectrum disorders. There’s some fantastic products and ideas that have been developing lots of great feedback since they’ve started. If you’re reading […]

Tough

Feb 25, 2015 - Life, Viridian, Writing - 0 Comments - Standard

Did I mention work was tough lately. It’s taken all the energy out of me, which means less writing and less updates. Mentally exhausting. Certainly no fun. I wrote a nice little passage for Viridian just then, but I’m still along way behind where I’d like to be. I was talking about writer’s block and […]

Four Floors

Feb 06, 2015 - Feathers Fall, Four Floors, Writing - 0 Comments - Standard

So I had some inspiration in the shower the other day, in much the same way that Feathers Fall came to me. It was enough to bang out a first chapter that is thoroughly entertaining. Working title Four Floors. Strangely similar Feathers Fall. What is it about showers and alliteration?

My work demands that I sit politely while people try their best to tear my ideas apart. And I’m ok with that. For […]

So I just dropped $350 on a steampunkish styled costume. Well, arguably it’s straight Victorian era. But hey. Close enough. Also, I just dropped $350 on a costume. Ouch :S

Major Book Haul

Every year, Lifeline do a bookfest where they offload all their donated books for cheap in a massive exhibition hall. This year, I got quite the haul.

More Covers

Jan 09, 2015 - Viridian, Writing - 1 Comments - Standard

So I dropped for another cover. It’s probably a little early to be doing so for Viridian, it’s definitely putting the cart before the horse, but it gives me some drive to keep working on the manuscript and get this sequel happening. Straight back to the same artist who did the cover for Crimson, as […]
