Plugin problems

Due to something to do with updates which ran overnight, I have had to disable the shop part of this website, along with anything to do do with woo commerce, until I can get it fixed. I will let people know as soon as I have sorted this out.  This post is just to let you know that I am aware of the problems and am working on a solution.

In the meantime, have a freebie.

Update: NaNoWriMo and other upcoming projects

After working for three weeks to complete an outline for this year’s NaNoWriMo, I decided a change of track was needed.  The outline for the Viking saga is just too big to handle in a competition like this and is going to need a different approach. This is why I have decided to add to my Charon series with a prequel, given that the back story alone has enough material to fill a novella. You can thank my editor for persuading me not to put it in the main story.

I’m going back to the bet that landed all the gods in the mortal realms until the end of time and having some fun with drunk gods, Romans, Battles, Sarcasm and some shameless cheating in the process. Hopefully, I will not take until May next year to finish this one, and it may only come to about 40k once edited, but I am hoping it will be a really good wheeze and as much fun to write as Charon Unguarded was: there are two more of those in the early outline stages too by the way.

If you haven’t already gathered, I like to dip in and out of my own projects with abandon, but I do eventually finish. I’m close to finishing my final round of self-editing on Charon UnGuarded which is due for proofreading in December, and beta reading and formatting at the beginning of January. Right, I need to get back to it before my editor catches me hanging around here.

Upcoming plans…

When I was very young my father would tell my brother and I stories of his own creation. Adlib! He’d come up with the main character and a world of dragons and magic, and every night he’d take us off on a different adventure.  As an adult, I now fully appreciate how magical that time with Dad was. It is a very great shame that he never committed any of them to paper (it was the 80s; very few people had a home computer).

Those who know me well, know that this week my father passed away very suddenly due to heart failure, having had a scare some fourteen years ago and survived due to a triple bypass operation. With this in mind, I have decided that  I will, at some point in the next eighteen months or so, be publishing some of these stories and donating all proceeds to the British Heart Foundation in Dad’s memory.

As such, I will be looking for illustrators to work with me on this project. If anybody would be at all interested in working with me on this project, please feel free to contact me.
