Double Vision – available to pre-order now

I’m just dropping by the dust lounge, casually leaving this link here for y’all. When I say ‘casually’, I mean I’m basically falling over my own feet and my head feels like it’s got a party of drunk squirrels inside it but I’m just gonna play it cool because if I let them out they might just run riot and throw some tellies out of some windows and that’s gonna really piss the neighbours off. But, I mean, this crazy squirrel buzz is because DOUBLE VISION – COLLECTED SHORT STORIES is now available to pre-order (!) – yes, there’s this…

Your indie book shout outs

First things first – you lot are bloody lovely you are. It’s true. Since my last post where I shared the news about venturing into the lands of self publishing, I’ve had so many kind messages offering support, advice and general all round fuzziness it nearly made me emoticon everywhere. It means a lot to hear from you. In order to avoid criminal emoticonage, I hereby present to you this video to express my fuzzy gratitude.   Since then, things have been steadily progressing (my face mostly looking like one big question mark during the whole process) but Double Vision…

Stepping into self-publishing

This is it, guys. This is me, checking out my New Year’s resolution-y things and getting some plans in place. And it’s time to get some wordy goodness out there in bookish form, which you’ll hopefully enjoy and share and generally have a damn good time with. It’s scary, stepping into self-publishing. Stepping in. Stepping out. Tripping on my shoelaces and teetering at the top of the stairs. *flails arms* But it’s damn exciting too, right? It’s a big learning curve – looking at formatting, design, marketing – all those things that eat into the actual writing hours that are…

It’s nearly FlashDogs time

And by that, I mean that they’ve done it again – they’re bringing out their third anthology, full of beautiful story nuggets, flash fiction to fill your coffee breaks with, tales to disappear from the world in. And for this third instalment, it’s all about Time. About the past. About the present. About the future. And it will officially be arriving on Chinese New Year, 8 February, buy why wait when you can pre-order your copy now, right now. And there’s old faces and new faces sharing their words. No stories from me in this one as other projects have…

Happy Launch Day – FlashDogs Volume 2

Just dropping by to say: Happy Solstice! Happy Father’s Day! Happy International Day of Yoga… erm… day! It’s a day crammed with celebrations (even the streets where I live have been taken over by carnival goers and rides – perhaps I might even join them soon, who can say no to beer in a plastic cup and the twang of toffee apples filling the air?) But the award for biggest celebration of the day goes to… … The FlashDogs! HAPPY LAUNCH DAY! That’s right, FlashDogs Volume 2, a two-part themed anthology goes on sale today. Two different volumes filled with…

The Flash Dogs are back

They’re back. They’re writing. They’re putting together a second anthology of beautiful, bitesize wordage. And it’s coming soon. So I’m just going to go ahead and leave this picture right here – share it, spread the word, print it out and eat cheese sandwiches off of it. For more official updates follow them on Twitter and join them in the writerly digital sphere that they run in. And once you’ve done that, and you’re sitting with your coffee and biscuits and waiting because it’s coming but it’s not goddamn here yet – don’t forget that their first anthology is still…
