It’s been a while since my last post, but I have a good excuse. There has been a great deal going on in my non-writer life which has led to a little bit of burn out. Many of you know that I am a viking reenactor, and have recently had three full weekend events in a row, followed by going to the Splendor festival in Nottingham last week has not left me a great deal of time to blog or be active on social media. There’s only one of me. In May through to the end of this month, I took an art course to get back into the practice of painting, which left me even less time for blogging, but it has paid off. Some of my artwork is now available in the shop. There are only three pieces for now but there will be more in the future. I’m also selling my handmade greeting cards and postcards through the shop.

However, this is my author site and, as arts and crafts are a different audience, during the course of this weekend I’ll be building a new website dedicated to selling my artwork and card crafts. I will eventually be in the position to take custom orders but for now, the current stock is what I have until I can get it properly set up.

I’m still editing The Bet after the first round of my editor’s advice and will be getting that back to her in the next couple of weeks. The scheduled release is September. The paperback version of the 2nd ed. of Charon Unguarded will be available by the end of this month. Also, I apologise for the lack of a July newsletter, I entirely forgot to schedule it and didn’t realise it hadn’t gone out until last week. I now have an Outlook reminder so that this does not happen again. I hope everyone who signed up is enjoying the character interviews and puzzles, and would love to read your feedback. The Newsletter will be resuming on the 1st of August, and I have included a mailing list sign up below if you haven’t already joined.

Currently on offer for £0.99!

Charon Unguarded

‘My friend, if the story is written against you, what you need to do is—’
‘Change the story?’
‘I was thinking more like hunt down the author and gut him in front of his family, but your plan works too.’

Charon was once the Ferryman of the Underworld. Now he’s the doorman of a disused office block. If only the old Gods hadn’t lost that drunken bet all those centuries ago, things would be very different. For a start, Ragnarök probably wouldn’t be on its way.

Ra is looking for a way of escaping the mortal realm, but there’s something about his plans he isn’t telling everyone.

Maybe Charon is the only one who’s noticed. He certainly seems to be the only one who cares. But can he do anything about it? It looks like he’s going to try. But there are others who might profit from the situation, and the last thing he wants is the Fae Courts breathing down his neck.
